The UN is a worthless entity, intent on milking money from US taxpayers, and all the while attempting to usurp our freedoms. Disband them and the money could be used to care for America...first.

EXACTLY!

Get the hell out of the U.N., stop all funding.

This makes me Sick. After my bills our paid for the month we have 336.00 .to live on.

Joey, you got $36.00 more than me after my bills are paid, but fear not, I don't want your money. I want OUR money back from the UN. What have they done for the USA, or for that matter, what have they done...period?

Yes Sherman Iam not asking for anything .And iam not the top wage earner.And Iam voting for MITT.

Remember, something is not right, the super wealthy, pay 50% less tax than I do, what's the story here. Can someone tell me. BB
I agree this sucks, so does obummer, but anyone know about Koch brothers, I was justing reading bout them, first all they are Jews, #2. they have been putting money into Political action comittees, PAC's. $100 million dollars or more, to keep the very wealthy tax cut, and keep the high tax on the poor and us, the middle classes, they are buying these congress people to benefit themselves with big federal contracts if there people get elected, they get lots richer, why else would they dump $100 million dollers into PAC's .

Maybe you should read up on George Soros, how much does he give to obumma, the dems, all the libs. Maybe the rich are in a lower tax bracket, but I am sure they are still paying millions more then you are. Remember 47% of the people don't pay any taxes, so thats an even lower tax bracket.

They are paying millions more than you and I, don't you get it man, they are paying 50% less than me, a guy who makes $10 million still walks away with 8.6 million, I make $ 150,000' I walk away with 108,000, If the multi millionaire was taxed like me he'd walk away with 7.2 million, not bad . Get it yet? 7.2 million You may say, hey, he earned it well so did I, I may have worked harder than some of those greedy SOB's, the past president of United Health Care made 110 million dollars in 2009, that's obscene, he's a pig, health care is a health issue in which we pay through the nose, they do need reform. BB

So what, it is their money, why is the government giving out free cell phones, giving money to all these countries that hate us, wasting money on the EPA, wasting money on green companies, wasting money on the lazy people on welfare. Here a question for you, do you take any write offs on your taxes? If you do then, you to are not paying your fair share. There are legal deductions you can use and the rich use them, so what. Even if there was a flat tax, I think you would still cry " the rich don't pay a fair share"

So what it's their money, who are you speaking of? The weathy? Do you like paying what you do in taxes? I don't like paying what i do but I have to. Well so what, it's my money, I earned my money but I pay 50% less than the super wealthy, get it. I take some deductions but it is small percent compared to what I contribute. I'll say it again , " the rich don't pay their fair share". Many super wealthy start foundations, some of which are good, they have their own museum and write it off, it goes on, remember....... The super wealthy pay 50% less than me, 50% less. Ah, I figured it out, you must make over 10 million a year, you like paying 50% less than me. Greed i guess. Ok whatever. BB

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
