How Far Does Foreign Aid Get You In The UN?

Not much:

The top ten recipients of foreign aid from the United States are Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Sudan, Pakistan, Lebanon, Colombia, Jordan, and Kenya. Removing Israel from the equation, the remaining nine countries received an average of $1.043 billion in 2007 from American taxpayers and voted with the U.S. an average of 8.74 percent. Another example of the diminished value of the dollar.

Do yourself a favor and read the whole post.

That's $9.387 billion a year for nine countries that pretty much hate our guts. I guess I could say that since they vote with us 8.74 percent of the time.

Could someone please tell me why we are still involved with joke of an organization?

Mr. Kilgannon asks an important question:

Ronald Reagan once said that somebody “who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and ally.” What, then, does that make the United Nations, which opposes us nearly 80 percent of the time?

Of course, the answer is simple. The UN is one of the most anti-American groups in the world. Even though we fund the majority of there operations. The time has come to pull out.
