    Poor big countries, they've been so used to having the US shoulder the costs for the organizations we jointly belong to. Now they are the 'big ones.' :boohoo:

    Boohoo. Their answer: Quotas on poorer countries with large agri-based economies. Oh, and give them less money.

    You misread, was referring to organizations such as UN, NATO, etc.

    These idiots are so egomaniacal they forget that the biggest cost of leadership is responsibility. They had stars in their eyes I guess.

    oh, misunderstood you there. I am just a disgrunteled former
    German taxpayer that financed the whole party without having
    the sayso about how to run the house.

    Well as an American taxpayer I still see congress working
    on their pet projects including 100000 $ toilet facilities.

    But at least I do not have to finance every social fad that comes around.
