    This oughta upset everybody:
    How they vote in the United Nations:
    Below are the actual voting records of various
    Arabic/Islamic
    States which are recorded in both the US State Department and United
    Nations records:
    Kuwait votes against the United States 67% of the time
    Qatar votes against the United States 67% of the time
    Morocco votes against the United States 70% of the time
    United Arab Emirates votes against the U. S. 70% of the
    time.
    Jordan votes against the United States 71% of the time.
    Tunisia votes against the United States 71% of the time.
    Saudi Arabia votes against the United States 73% of the
    time.
    Yemen votes against the United States 74% of the time.
    Algeria votes against the United States 74% of the time.
    Oman votes against the United States 74% of the time.
    Sudan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
    Pakistan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
    Libya votes against the United States 76% of the time.
    Egypt votes against the United States 79% of the time.
    Lebanon votes against the United States 80% of the time.
    India votes against the United States 81% of the time.
    Syria votes against the United States 84% of the time.
    Mauritania votes against the United States 87% of the time.
    U S Foreign Aid to those that hate us:
    Egypt, for example, after voting 79% of the time against
    the
    United States, still receives $2 billion annually in US Foreign Aid.
    Jordan votes 71% against the United States
    And receives $192,814,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.
    Pakistan votes 75% against the United States
    Receives $6,721,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.
    India votes 81% against the United States
    Receives $143,699,000 annually.
    Perhaps it is time to get out of the UN and give the tax
    savings
    back to the American workers who are having to skimp and sacrifice to
    pay
    the taxes(and gasoline).
    Pass this along to every taxpaying citizen you know.
    Disgusting isn't it?

    The UN is a joke, no country there have the kahuna's to do a damn thing.
    Russia and China have been a thorn in our behinds forever...its been that
    since Khrushchev. Taxes are terrible, but how can a country send money to Bin-laden, if we don't pay for it. Remember when the Russians were in Afghanistan, we financed his war there because we didn't want them there. How much money goes to Palestine...even though they are
    instruments of terror. It seems to me we are paying with our tax money
    to fund these bastards to kill us. The US funds nations or entities as long
    as it is in our interests, after that is over the funding stops... all of a suddenly we created another terrorist or rouge nation. I personly am sick
    of my tax money going to countries that have the ability to fend for their
    selfs, but eagerly accept money that generaly goes to some crooked politician to line his pockets...the hell with the people that need help.
    We are sending billions of dollars to the world comunity for " aid " while
    our schools are closing...we are losing emergency services, do to lack
    of funds, we as Americans can only pay so much for our schools and
    services, we need some of our own tax money to fund these things,
    why should we suffer to fund some desert rat or African nation that can't
    learn to plant a garden or farm. We should have a say as to where our
    money goes...cherity begins at home...and by God it is time this country
    takes care of it's own. Sorry BOC a little wordy...

    Why do we send all that money to all those different places?

    To buy freindship?

    To help fellow humans?

    So we can gain accsess to natural resources?

    To further our influence and way of life?

    To apease an enemy?

    So we can maintain military bases in the region?

    So our large corperations can do business in other counrties?

    To maintain world stability?

    To influence world order with our presence?

    my brother years ago told me that his thoughts was
    the un was for the different governments to have an
    unbiased and indifferent force to oppose an overthrow
    of the government.

    meaning if we rise up against our country to over throw it
    the un can call in troops from kosovo, russia ,china etc.etc.
    to take care of us without haveing any conflicting problems of our own troops killing us.

    i truley think he may have a bit of a point there.

    as far as this taxing us to give money to these other countries that dont like us its totally asinine.
    who does the voting of this???
    we pay taxes and the taxes are given away to tyrants that wants us to
    die???
    this is mind boggleing. and it isnt bush the dems or reps
    who the hell is it??????

    we are run by something that we cant even see and we are at its mercy.
    people say to vote......vote for who???? one a$$ is just as bad as the other. we have no choice they put these monserously wrong for us people up there as our choice and its vote for the lesser of two evils.

    that is crazy.
