    The U.K.'s liberal rag, the 'Independent' asks:

    Why are commedians considered serious political thinkers by the liberals?

    And you expect Saddam and Al-Qauda to do so? Why don't we put them back in charge for you, dumbass?

    What's fair about taking away my hard earned money?

    Yeah, but your Muslims are sure falling behind. Pick up the pace, please.

    HUH? So we can expect the tsunami survivors to invade other countries? What the hell is this guy smoking?

    That's the spirit! Keep positive libs!

    I can buy that.

    No, Western capitalism demands that loser artists like you be impovershed.

    Well surely YOUR government should have done something, right Mr. Secretary?

    Fine, but meaningless weaseling. So what do YOU think, Sir?

    Sadly for me or sadly for you? I don't see you giving away your riches, so why should I be expected to? Ass.

    Always looking for the angle of attack, even in a tragedy, aren't you little miss priss?

    Looking to be on the UN dole now, aren't you Tony? Why else would you pump them up?

    Well anyone with an airline and a tv show can speak for the rest of us... :rolleyes:

    All in all I'm pretty unimpressed with this cast of literal clowns. So is this what the left likes to read these days? No wonder they are going insane.

    In other words, follow-the-money? Who benefits from a "world" tax on the USA? The leadership of the UN. Right? Dem pesky bastards.

    I have two questions for anybody that might know (I will try looking it up too).

    1) How much of the UN budget is paid by the USA?
    2) How much does the Sec General of the UN make in a year?

    without.

    I see that he gets about $225K a year, a mansion, etc. So I would guess that all together, with perks, etc., he is making about $1 million per year. So that means that we, the USA is paying between $222 and $225K of his annual salary and perks. That's fucked up.

    but if you count the kick backs....damn!

    you see alot of them talking about what we should/ need to be doing. but are they following their own advice?
    i seen sandra bullock donated a million bucks of her own money for flood victims.
