Romney's campaign needs to get out and get this in the airwaves.... Obama promised in the last debate that he would stand by Israel.... so now is the time for Obama to stand by Israel.

I don’t advocate kicking the UN out of NY. That is too obvious and creates too many martyrs. Rather, I support a policy of slow and steady strangulation of the organization from within.

I give the US about a 50% chance of surviving a barky 2nd term. Israel, OTOH, I give about a 15% chance.

The United Nations originated as an organization dedicated to world peace, but has ended up a forum for demented thugs, third world idiots, crooks, tyrants and would-be tyrants, professional liars, and communist agitators.

It has long since outlived its usefulness, should be defunded and shunned, and the real estate turned into a spacious parking ramp for the convenience of New Yorkers and visitors to the city.

Boycott is something individuals do. When states do it, it’s an embargo.

Obama asks the UN to go to the 50 States to observes election. Obama declare a national UN day. UN HR committee calls for boycott of USA companies...

I’ve been hearing a lot of UN ‘BS’ recently. I sure hope bambi does not get to feeling too froggy after he loses the election - and tries calling in his UN b-buddies for help.

Little chance of this amounting to anything, because any country attempting such actions would be hit by retaliatory tariffs or import bans affecting access to the US market.

Porsche
BMW
Volkswagen
Mercedes Benz
Toyota
Nissan
Subaru
Hyundai
Samsung
Sony
Volvo
Airbus
etc.

They should send back any life-saving drugs and cease using any US-originated medical treatments, including clean water treatments as well.

Thanks for the heads up, I totally missed and so did many others no doubt. I did not see many comments so I think it kind of got lost and this needs to be shouted at the rooftops. Dang my brain hurts from all the craziness.

The US needs to kick the UN out of New York and defund the UN.

Ignore them. What can they do? Invade us? Go to some "International Tribunal" and get a "judgement"?

These people are pissants and should be crushed.

The Kenyan must go.
