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

WTH -> Rosie O’Donnell Claims There Are ‘Over 100,000’ Concentration Camps In America

Actress and left-wing activist Rosie O’Donnell made the stunning claim that there are more than 100,000 concentration camps in states across the country, holding unaccompanied minors who illegally enter the U.S.

Appearing Monday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Rosie O’Donnell was asked about the role she’s playing in Lights for Liberty, a rally being held July 12th to demand and end to what host Andy Cohan called “detention camps.”

“Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria for concentration camps, they meet them. There are over 100,000 camps in nearly every state,” O’Donnell said, failing to cite the scholars she mentioned. “There’s between 10,000 and 13,000 children, that could fill Radio City Music Hall twice. That’s how many children unaccompanied alone in these camps.”

O’Donnell, of course, was echoing fellow far-left figures like New York freshman Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has spent the last several weeks comparing the oft-overcrowded Border Patrol facilities currently holding thousands of unaccompanied minors who illegally entered the country with adults to contraction camps like the ones that executed Jews during the Holocaust. Indeed, that comparison was roundly rejected on Monday by the United States Holocaust Museum.

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” the organization said. “That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”

It is worth noting that the policy of separating children from adults and holding them in separate facilities was expanded by Barack Obama. It was his administration that separated thousands of children from their parents as a way to deter illegal immigration.

Rosie O’Donnell Backs Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Bid — ‘She Knows How to Handle That Baby in the White House’

Rosie O’Donnell said she is supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

O’Donnell said, “Warren is my choice.”

She added, “We need a leader. We need a leader, and she’s been leading. Every time she opens her mouth, she gets more respect. Because she has plans for everything, she knows what she’s doing. And I think she knows how to handle that baby in the White House.”
