"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Is America Really "Stingy"?????

Factoid: xx The U.S. has increased its development assistance by 90% since President Bush took office, to $19 billion from $10 billion. This relates to foreign aid which is generally wasted and misappropriated by the United Nations. "For years, the U.N. has got by on the assumption that nobody, at least nobody in the U.S., is paying much attention. Its defenders have spun Mr. Bolton's efforts as a last-minute rogue operation designed to hurt the U.N. But in fact Mr. Bolton is doing Turtle Bay the favor of taking its words seriously. Those who want something more than a feckless and corrupt world body should welcome his efforts." Source: Wall Street Journal
