You know what I find funny? Killary or Kasich or Sanders or basically anyone else would have either (and at best) left it alone but most-likely increased it but Trump decreased it and now it's not enough to matter.

After a little research into UN funding cutting $285 million is a start but it's 7 BILLION, 715 MILLION SHORT.
6715 million short actually. :wink:
The quick google search I done said the US put 8 billion per year into the UN. If it's 7 billion instead of 8 that's still way too much.
I used to be a people person, but people ruined it.

Yep...you just needed to move the decimal point over a spot.

I couldn't agree more! The establishment (both sides) but especially the left, the poor media and the morons are just going to have to live with it. Well, they could all move to their utopian Europe but it's being overrun by muslims and liberalism so...

That must be common core math.

UN gets 8 Billion a year from the US. That's 8,000,000,000, or 8000 million. They cut 285 million , or 285,000,000 from the UN. So without using common core that's
8,000,000,000
- 285,000,000 which leaves
7,715,000,000. That's 7 billion 715 million, like I said in my original post.

Like I said, I'm not good a common core. 1 plus 1 equals 2 in the math I use.

Her's my original post.

Sorry I read your post as saying "it's 7 Billion" meaning the funding was 7 billion and we are 715 million short of 7 billion...opps!

So the US provides the UN with 28% of its annual funding based on GDP rank.
That comes out to about $2.2 billion per year which includes peace keeping troops around the world.

But we give Israel over 3.0 billion per year for nothing.
The are completely useless and do nothing for the US, representing just 0.2% of the worlds population.
Cutting back on that donation would be real progress towards peace in the middle east.
And the money could be spent on our own racial and sub-cultural ethnic problems.

I agree. Stop giving handouts. Keep the money at home.
