"Just one other thing; if the US did stop funding "unglued nations" altogether, they would probably cease to exist, since we provide more that 25% of their total budget- -somehow, I thinks it would be very difficult for them to continue on…"
"It would be so nice if you two would stop sniping at each other; seriously, don't we have other more important things to discuss and work on? As for the UN, if the USA would simply "stop" funding them, altogether, we could hasten…"
Interesting questions, and to throw another curve at you consider this from wiki: "The Thirteenth Tribe" by The Thirteenth Tribe (1976) is a book by Arthur Koestler, which advances the thesis that Ashkenazi Jews are not descended from the historical Israelites of antiquity, but from Khazars, a Turkic people. Koestler's hypothesis is that the Khazars converted to Judaism in the 8th century, and
migrated westwards into Eastern Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries when the Khazar Empire was collapsing.
However, I am less concerned about heritage than the grab of our media, the people's airwaves, to support one monolithic, exclusive world view.
June, that number is pathetic. All of these people yammering about how terrible Obama is and we have not seen anything yet. They sit on their hands waiting for someone else to do something. It is like they are afraid to put their name on something, because Obama's Goon squad will show up at their door. I have written Obama directly and called him everything except a human. I write my Senators and my House member asking them to empower me to arrest the crook as I was a Senior ranked Law Enforcement Officer in my life. I tell them they are scared of him. I tell them that Sheriff Joe from Arizona and I will go and sweep the trash out of "MY" White House, because I guess we are the only 2 people in this country that are not afraid of the Booggy Man. I get no response of course. Well, 2000 is better than none, not much, but we tried. We can be proud of that. Merry Christmas if I don't talk to you before then.
This is an open invitation for you. If I can assist you behind the scenes, let me know. I am not looking for glory and accalades. I am not that kind of person. See ya later, keep on keeping on.
Yes, I know about about the other petition and I have signed it. As far as House members and Senate members paying attention to us, all I have to say there is a better chance of people in Hell getting free ice water to go along with their medium rare Porterhouse steak dinners. I have the 3 Mousekateers for so called leadership roles where I live,(Salem, Oregon,the Capitol) 2 Senators of course, Merkley (OK) and Ron Wyden (glory grabbing puke) lives in NY city with his rich Prima Dona wife, because Portland, Oregon is not good enough for her. He only comes back to Oregon for major photo op's and re-elections. Oregon has not had a Republican Gov. for 30 years. Our present Gov. (I call him RETREAD) was Gov. once before for 2 terms and complained that Oregon was un-governerable. Him and his Girlfriend won't live in Salem in the Gov's. Mansion (I mean mansion) they have to live in Portland also. This means a state owned limo a state employee driver, 2 aids, 4 Oregon State Troopers for escorts and a huge Penthouse Loft and of course the commute 2 time a day and the auto upkeep, the fuel and the aids and the troopers stay in portland overnight all expenses paid at the Benson Hotel. This is where the Presidents stay when they come to town. To top all of this off, he made up a new job title for his girlfriend as a state job at $150,000.00 a year and all of the above is on the State Of Oregons tax payers dime. Sounds like a brother to Obama. This guy is a Caucasian, "EX" doctor. Lost his license. Malpractice. See ya and thanks for your hard work. When and if I can assist you, please do not hesitate to ask.

Your new friend here with the petition for the electorial col., Vernon Rice. There is a conservative talk radio gentleman here that would love nothing more than to send THE MAN WHO CALLS HIMSELF THE PRESIDENT down the road with a can tied to his tail. His name is "LARS LARSON." He has a so called local show that covers the entire state of Oregon and a big chunk of SW Washington state. He has 2 email addresses as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org and his shows= email@example.com KXL 101.1FM Portland, Oregon. I do not have the radio stations phone #, but I do have Lar's shows phone #'s. They are the same. His local show starts here PST at 12:00 noon and his national show starts at 4:00 PM PST. When they answer, tell them who you are and I am sure you will not have to wait very long. You don't have to, but if you wish, tell him the watchdog from Salem turned you on to him. Keep him handy. He will work with you and for you.
Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.
California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.
Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.
Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.
“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.
Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.
Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).
Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.
Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.
Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
