Somebody needs to grab Bammy’s $tash.
That is all well and good as long as it comes out of his bank account and not mine.
Translation: He wants to be UN Secretary General.
I’d much prefer we pay our military appropriately. They do much more than the UN to make the world a better and safer place.
Puts him in NYC, and he can do high paying stints on MSNBC while MooseChelle does The View and Blowprah.
Just say no.
Should be a slam-dunk for Bonehead, but then again.
the bastard is going to spend every dime the U.S. has before he is gone, which will come none too soon.
Hey, our credit with China is still good!
Why not borrow more money and give it to UN for a good cause?
We don’t have to pay the debt back!!
Let our kids and grand kids worry about the debt later!
Cut what we send to the U.N. No more money for our enemies (including O).
No problem. Boehner and Cantor will jump at the chance to comply with whatever Obama wants.
We should insist. It would be the best way to drive him, the UN, and the rest of those cesspool suckers out of this country.
No one is stopping him from using his OWN MONEY to fund anything he wants. He just needs to keep his thieving hands off the American taxpayer dollars. If the UN and other “international groups” want money, they can have a car wash and/or bake sale and raise it themselves.
As long as he takes it out of his own pocket, I’m fed up with American taxpayers being the piggy bank for people who hate us.
Well Lil Bam sure is trying to break the bank. Three more years and I’m not sure what’s going to be left to save either.
