    Susan Rice kicks off U.N. series

    Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, will argue in a major address Friday evening that the nation should “strengthen” — not “starve” — the world body.

    The address is the first in a series of speeches — to continue this spring — making the case to the American people for why the U.N. matters to national security, and detailing how it is being improved. The ambassador will be speaking to the World Affairs Council of Oregon in Portland.

    The country can ill afford to surrender money or sovereignty to the dysfunctional, corrupt and frankly useless UN. Of course, Obama loves the idea.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It doesn't matter what Susan Rice wants. I have read that UN funding is going to be targeted by the House of Representatives.

    AMEN brother...

    Two things I would immediately run on if I were running. Out of the UN, or at least de-fund it, and other useless foreign aid, and promise to bring back American manufacturing.. America is open for business.

    I win..

    My platform would be RADICAL crazy

    1. Americans For Fair Taxation: Americans For Fair Taxation Would replace the IRS, repeal of the 16th Amendment.

    2. Reduce UN funding by 50% and 5% each year until the UN cleans up it's financial mess. I.E. the fraud, waste and abuse. After that, each year the UN Funding would have to be voted on by the House and Senate, full disclosure on what's being spent and for what programs. Full open books from the UN tracking every penny. Failure to achieve this in 5 years would result in the USA withdrawing from the UN and revoking the UN's right to exist in the USA.

    3. Disband, and remake the EPA over a 4 year period, with the goal of building a smaller, leaner, less over reaching agency with a very strict and limited mission.

    4. Abolish the Department of Education.

    5. End of the Estate Tax.

    6. End of all "charity" aide to foreign countries. Creation of a Government Agency whose sole mission is to assist Volunteer Charities get money and resources to Foreign Countries. It's not the Governments job to give tax payer monies to other countries for photo ops. Might feel good, might help people, but it's not right.

    7. Restructuring of the DOD Procurement process to hold down costs and improve development to field times.

    8. End Affirmative Action. It's wrong for the Government to give resources to those of one skin color and deny it to those of another.

    9. English Only as the Official Federal Language*. *Exception being where impractical, such as Immigration and travel documents.

    10. End of the "Anchor Baby".

    11. Enforcing Immigration Laws, cities that play the "Sanctuary City" game will be denied Federal Funding.

    12. Repeal of the 17th Amendment.

    13. No bail outs, for anything.

    That's the Big 13 I would focus on.

    Obama can't form his dictatorship without heavy support from the UN and the UN is going to be much stronger than it is now to accomplish that mission.

    Re: Susan Rice kicks off U.N. series

    The only point on which I might disagree with Mr. V is on the question of affirmative action. I might be persuaded to continue affirmative action if it were limited exclusively to impoverished African American youths. No one else. Then put a twenty year limit on it so that it concludes within one generation from now.
