When to say "We can't afford you"

I look at the United Nations as a 30-year-old druggie living in his mom's basement. Never accomplishing anything, never moving faster than a glacier. An untidy heap of lost ambition and a sad excuse for existence. This adolescent is high on money he doesn't deserve and fed with funds we can no longer afford.
We shovel money into this loser and we get absolutely nothing, not even thanks. In fact, we've been berated for not giving enough!
Its time to throw the bum out.
I could rail all day at the deficiencies, the corruption and the foreign intelligence nested in that building, but the simplest reason to send it packing is a fiscal one.
We just can't afford it.
This from the "Better World Campaign" website "dedicated to a better UN/U.S. relationship":
"Currently, the U.S. is assessed 22% of the UN regular budget and 26% for UN peacekeeping appropriations. Due to Administration and Congressional underfunding of U.S. treaty-obligated payments to the UN, the U.S. now has $1.5 billion in permanent debt to the UN."

Excuse me? We OWE the UN a PERMANENT debt of $1,500,000,000.00??!!
What the Hell does that mean?
It means no matter how much funding the UN receives, these United States will be billed 1.5 billion dollars. Remember, this is only the tip of the iceberg.

Statement by Timothy E. Wirth, President of the United Nations Foundation, regarding 2009 Omnibus Funding for United Nations Peacekeeping:

“After nearly six months of operating on a Continuing Resolution allowing for flat-lined funding to keep government services functioning, I am deeply concerned with the final appropriation of $1.517 billion for United Nations peacekeeping activities. This figure will leave the U.S. a staggering $669 million short in meeting our assessed peacekeeping needs for FY 2009."

Peacekeeping? For our boy living in Mom's basement, that just means another bong hit of funds from our pockets.
No, son. We just can't afford you.
Here's bus fare to the shelter. Good luck.

The Short Bus Stops In Milwaukee...

I'll begin with some begging.
I'm begging Ed Morrissey to get Milwaukee county supervisor Peggy West on his show. I just know the geography-challenged Ms West will provide high-order entertainment for us Ed heads.
And I just want to see another ignorant liberal get verbally savaged and publicly pounded. There are so many ignorant liberals it's hard to know where to start. The landscape is littered with leg-tinglers and Obots. It's what I used to call a target-rich environment.

Am I just being mean-spirited? In a word, yes.

What drives me to this kind of fury? Could it be the foot-dragging and stonewalling that has ruined the Gulf of Mexico? Could it be my adopted home state of 26 years is now just Indiana with palm trees? Because of bureaucratic bumbling so incredible it looks deliberate, I'm planning to move. I'll take what little acumen and financial support I can muster with me.
To Arizona.
I just won't ask Peggy West for directions.

Somebody Left The Irony On

The white house 'attack dog in a tutu' Rahm Emmanuel commented on Tony Hayward's yachting weekend "I think he got his life back,"and "I think we can all conclude that Tony Hayward is not going to have a second career in PR consulting".
Was Rahmbo aware his boss was golfing with his VP at the time? Instead of ballet, he should have studied comic opera. Instead of pirouette can we say 'pivot'? After all, Mark Steyn famously said Obama is "The Very Model Of A Modern Major Generalist" .
This administration has an incredible sense of comic timing. It's high-order burlesque. The fumbling and gaffes would have made the Keystone Kops proud. It would be laughable if the situation wasn't so tragic. Barely a notch above slapstick, this Vaudeville-on-the-Potomac has the world laughing uncontrollably.
That is, every one but us.

State Sovereignty and Sand

In a way, I'm glad AG Eric holder and the white house are so misguided as to fight Arizona in court. When Arizona wins, it will cement the idea of protecting our borders legally and forcefully. Exerting 10th amendment rights of the state will have gained traction and a win in court will be the sand under the wheels of enforcement. The reassertion of state's rights is at the core of this controversy, not immigration. State's rights extend to so much more and the federal government is frantic over the loss of control over the states. Frankly, I couldn't be happier. This is a bloodless civil war (so far).
As for sand, tell Eric Holder to go pound it up his ass.

The Gulf Held Hostage

The Obama administration only appears colossally inept. They know exactly what they're doing. The disastrous blowout of the Deep Horizon rig is a crisis they can't afford to waste. An opportunist president with an agenda will use this awful event to further his destruction of our economy. How? He will press for the fatally flawed cap-and-trade legislation that promises to raise energy prices to unsustainable levels. The result will be a strangled economy, choked to death by a cascade of price increases and job losses.
Why is he dragging his feet? Why has he apparently dug in his heels when it comes to Gulf clean-up?
Because it advances his agenda
.
Mark these words, only after a cap-and-trade is signed will the administration make any concerted effort to clean up the oil.
If then.

This is especially painful to me. Florida has been my adopted home for 26 years. Its where I love to scuba dive and photograph wildlife. Because of the inaction of this administration, that may all be gone.

This administration is holding the Gulf hostage by foot-dragging and petty micro-managing (such as the supposed lack of life jackets on the oil-removal barges).

Just don't accept any promises from this administration. Remember, this is a dangerously destructive sociopath in the oval office. He's a habitual liar and fraud.
