    The United States on Thursday announced it would help build a $100 billion annual fund by 2020 to help poor countries cope with climate change, but said its commitment depended on whether the nations gathered here could reach a substantive pact that includes "transparency" on tracking emissions cuts.

    US commits 100 billion dollars for climate change initiatives for poor nations

    So are we just going to borrow more money from China to put into this fund and let furute generations of Americans watch this nation slide deeper into debt. When this nation is having trouble employing its own people, and finding funding for healthcare we come up with money for this. This is truley a poor decision.

    Dude, I'm frankly disgusted by this, how those that represent us can even suggest spending money that we do not have on this when this nation has so many issues to address at home. Whats most ironic about this, is that these are the same people who have made their careers condemning the previous Administration for it's forrays into Iraq and Afghanistan and complaining about spending money there that could have been spent here at home.

    True enough Dude, it's why the same people who made all the noise about spending on the Wars who are now spending on everything that isnt nailed down with the notable exception of the people of this nation seems at the very least laughable, but sadly spending money we do not have for things such as these have little if any justification to them.

    That, and the schmucks who campaigned on an anti-war platform are now expanding the war.

    Meanwhile, the GOP canard about going third party (or second, such as it is) throwing elections to democrat buffoons ring hollower and hollower.

    You actually bought in to their bullshit?

    Each party has things they want to waste money on, that have little to do with helping the nation out.

    For the GoP douchebags, they had bought into the FDR/Truman world police deal, and want to invade countries and buy lots weapons.

    For the Democrats, its goofy socialist programs that don't really help people but instead make them more depended on government and throwing money at the rest of the world, no matter how broke we are.

    Both are disgusting.

    You and I both know Dude the only way this nonsense will stop is when all those in power realize who the employers are and as long as people keep going into the voting booth and just voting for the party rather than the person and the merits of the person, then it will change regardless of the R or D or even I after then name.
