"SHUT YOUR YAPPER!"
 
2011-08-31 11:02:49 AM
Ros-Lehtinen wants to turn the whole system that way to put an end to an agenda that "is frequently hijacked by rogue regimes which protect each other while targeting free democracies like the U.S. and Israel."

But I'll bet you she'd never dream of cutting any funding to Israel.

Hey Leana, what are you going to use to scare South FL voters into voting R when zombie Castro decides to drop the other shoe?

Ok, seriously, name the one time UN directly oppose the actions taken by the US with a show of forces rather than strongly worded letter.

It's weird, Americans tends to think UN only use strongly worded letter against rogue states when they clearly engaged/supported in several operations, while the most they did to US is exactly that.... strong words, no actions (Guatemala, Iraq).

Also we are both absolutely controlled by the UN while at the same time the UN is a completely useless body with no power that never did nothin' for nobody.

Because it's much better to let the US be the world police by itself?

Hilarious that the GOP candidates are attacking Obama now for not doing things more like Bush and the Iraq war. Like that was some wort of successful way of doing things.

The hypocrisy is the right likes to portray the UN as "Ohhh the are going to right a mean letter" but when the UN does more they viciously attack them for getting involved.

Would she and the 57 co-sponsors object if I tried to get legislation passed so that I could determine where my tax money goes?

Article? WTF are you talking about? There's articles on Fark?

Well, the U.N. is kind of like a van down by the river.

The Chris Farley part is only thing new here. Tiny-minded elected officials calling for less foreign spending is old news.

Ok, I don't get it, according to nasty lib blog Daily Kos, THIS

is also Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. And yet her ideological brethren, FNC, post that Chris Farley pic of her?

OMG. My eyes. What happened to Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen?? She used to look... normal.

Holy crap.

I remember when she was running for congress the first time. Pretty sure she was a diminutive brunette....Not a hulking blond sasquatch .
 
2011-08-31 01:07:57 PM
screw the UN. It is an anti-american organization anyway.
 
2011-08-31 01:08:29 PM
I think it's just a really, really bad picture, but it appears to be her. Link (new window)

Don't we owe the U.N something like 1 Billion dollars in back dues already?
 
2011-08-31 01:15:02 PM
Do we even pay the UN now?

I read it. She's pandering. I doubt she can name a single thing that US tax dollars paid for at the UN that is against our interests. She's playing up the angle that all UN members are crazy, communist dictators that want to kill the US and Israel.

Leaving very, very satisfied

/fark, you never disappoint.

The bill by Rep. Ieana Ros-Lehtinen, chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, would make it U.S. policy to shift the U.N.'s regular budget to a voluntary basis and allow the U.S. and other member states to choose what they fund at the U.N.

That's great. Now when can I pick and choose where my tax dollars go? I'm thinking I want all my money in death panels.
 
2011-08-31 01:40:10 PM
Do you know how I know she has no idea how the UN works and what it does?
 
2011-08-31 01:46:37 PM
Looks like David Spade and Penn Gillette had a child with progeria.

Day and night she talks, each word more useless than the next.

Haven't paid dues, yet still the largest source of UN funds. But you keep citing your partisan deep

I'm all for funding the UN.

Where else are we going to find such a conveniently-located facility where all the batshiat gibbering Mugabes and Chavezes and Ahmagonnagityousuckas can get up on a world stage and make royal fools of themselves, leaving the local leftists to tie themselves in knots explaining "well, when Mahmoud said annihilate Israel, I don't think he meant wipe it out literally. The land would still be there after all the Jews were wiped ou...I mean, placed into the UN's pilot program for study and possible right-sizing of their numbers down to something in the range of zero. So he never said anything about killing people. There's a lot of nuance, you know..."
