    We should've cut our contribution to the UN a LONG time ago. All those blowhards do is leech off us anyways....

    hell yea! completely cut all ties to the UN and kick them out of the country, let the Russians cater to them, they get 2 votes, bad play on our part to have anything more to do with the UN, they don't have our interests at heart or human rights interests at heart, the UN seems to cater to murderous genocidal countries, at least look the other way while giving US dollars to them

    I don't think abortion needs any promotion in China. The less we give or deal with the UN the better.

    We need to support the UN; they do important work.

    What we don't need are crackpot right wing members of Congress who never get their facts right -- and this guy is just one more.

    @MolonLabe My mental health is excellent; so is my capacity for fact-finding.

    Yours, on both counts, not so much.

    I think every man and woman of child bearing age should be offered 10K by their respective governments...to voluntarily sterilize themselves....this would pay off financially in the long run...and would be the best thing we could do for the remaining population of human life on this planet...it would also virtually end the need for abortions

    I'd be ok with that. Even better, how about we double it and they can never qualify for any welfare program. I'd take a tax increase for that, though we probably wouldn't need it in the long run.

    There is a problem in that important genetics may be lost. It would be better that everyone donated sperm and eggs in early teens.

    I oppose it but that is easy, I oppose everything the Republicans HAVEN'T done for the last 5+ years. Lame yeah but it's hard to oppose something that never was. Which is what the Repubs have accomplished, 0000000000.0.

    Might have better results passing a law that forbids Hobby Lobby from buying Chinese art and crafts products.

    Well if a congressman says it promotes abortion in China, clearly that must be true. Certainly a politician would never lie!

    Oh, wait...

    Who's business is it what they do in China, Arabia, Egypt or anywhere else? Certainly not ours. We can't control our own thugs and criminals in office now!

    Screw abortion ... it's all about population control anyway so why not cut through all the bullshit and go straight for sterilization instead ... problem solved!

    I'd agree with that.....

    Demolition Man had a good solution.....all abortions were illegal.....but so was getting pregnant UNLESS you had the certificates.....

    @Libertyiskey That part I agree with but perhaps better mandatory birth control and more R&D for male birth control.

    Just don't think the US should support any UN spending decisions taking US dollars out of the country, we already waist enough on foreign aide programs for nations that hate us

    Interesting that so many here want the USA to leave the UN as I do.

    Yet if you look at those that run for President recently , only one has proposed that. Seems like an idea whose time has come.

    Let's get the UN out of the USA and the USA out of the UN.

    Let us end but resume our foreign aid, AFTER we have a $18 trillion federal surplus and all of our domestic problems have been solved and we can once again afford to become dumb and involved.

    PNWest is against foreign aid of any sort. We have $17 Tirllion in debt. We can start thing about giving tax payer money away to non-Americans when we no longer have that debt.
  • #33
    !
    That debt is unimportant as the congress is not serious about raising taxes to pay for it. Some tax reform and in a few years that debt will be gone.

    Foreign relations are essential to international stability, which is essential for international commerce, which our economy depends upon.
  • #64
    !
    @NormalFlora Nope - foreign aid is completely and totally out of hand. We are giving money to countries we trade with, countries we don't trade with, countries that hate us and countries that are our allies (or at least claim to be until times get tough). It is all a waste of money. We are the largest market in the world. We do not need to bribe people to do business with us. We should eliminate ALL foreign aid immediately and then look at individual request on a case by case basis. Ans we should do this with a far more critical eye.

    @PNWest I agree that aid to some countries is absurd. Pakistan can go up in a fireball and I wouldn't care. Nigeria needs to have its Internet connection severed. Somalia will always be a failure.
    Still, aid in targeted amounts to deserving emerging democracies is a good thing.
  • #66
    !
    @NormalFlora Start at ZERO and then look at each case on a case by case basis. With $17 Trillion in debt this foreign aid is an OUTRAGE to the American taxpayers.

    Can we go a step further and turn the UN over to Russia the same as control of the internet.

    That big building in New York could become a museum for unworkable liberal fantasies and actually make NYC some added revenue.
