Sure, compared to what war mashinery costs the taxpayer, the costs for a building dedicated to house people who intend to do constructive works for the best of humanity seems to be merely a dime and a cent. But then, the building doesnt go boom, doesnt kill women and children in some far off country, so naturally some folks hate to waste the precious money on it.

If it aint killin' nobody, then it aint worth a damn! Yehaaw!!

Talking about wasted public money, I'd like to know how much all the infrastructure for the king of inefficiency, the Homeland Security Department, costs. Just forcing FBI and the intelligence community to cooperate would have been too simple.

But who cares, let's just bi*ch about the friggin' UN who ain't gonna do anymore what we tell them.

Because a corrupt man like John Bolton, who works for a corrupt organization like the Heritage Foundation is interviewed by a corrupt news network like Rupert Murdochs Fox News and tells the public that the only reason why the United Nations wants to adhere to international law and wont allow illegal premptive wars is because they are corrupt too.

Ah, the insanity never ends...

Just skimmed over his wiki entry and found this: "There is no such thing as the United Nations. There is only the international community, which can only be led by the only remaining superpower, which is the United States."

I think the suitable adjective is anti-democratic.
