    Default UN Proposes Billions in "International Taxes"

    Ya gotta love these guys ... they have proposed hundreds of billions of international taxes to be paid to the UN for re-distribution to poorer countries who need the help. They have proposed carbon taxes that would produce $250 billion in revenue alone. Also levies on financial transactions, giving over 1/2 the proceeds of off-shore drilling, a tax on airfares. The list goes on.

    This is from the same guys who cannot even account for the money they presently handle to run their own organization. This from the guys who give $23,000 to each country "too poor" to send their delegates to NY for the meeting of the UN General Assembly ... but who are not too poor to have those delegates reside in $16,000/night penthouse suites while they are in NY.

    The UN has been worthless for decades. This is another area we could save a couple of billion on by making them move somewhere else. Then, put the property up for sale as it is worth a couple hundred million.

    The UN makes our R's & D's look somewhat capable - they are kept around so folks can say "At least our guys aren't as bad as the UN, or are they?

    We can't afford to give the UN any more than we already do. We have our royalty here that we have pay for to the tune of $1.8 Billion per year.
