    I have no clue. The UN craps on us at every turn but yet we still pay them up the wazoo. Quite frankly, I'm more impressed with the Three Stooges than I am with the UN. At least the Three Stooges could make us laugh. The UN is just a lame joke.

    To protect Israel, Israel is in violation of many international laws and the only way the Jews who run America can protect Israel is by paying off the UN.

    And all we get from the UN is complaints too - we should stop funding them. It's like subsidizing your mother in law.

    Because we are the wealthiest nation on earth, by far. And we hold a seat on the security council.

    It's a simple matter to just pull out. Leave the U.N. It'll save us a fortune.
