It seems every day there is something new that would threaten to destroy America as we have known it. I know you are probably as me..sick and tired of this campaign before it really heats up…so far we have had the Primarys..let’s not get so distracted that we are not aware of what is going on in Washington. I came across this information on Aurora’s site and thought we darn well better know it. So my friends..put on your seat belt and hold on tight..but when you do..Please take the wheel. For now you can be in the Drivers seat if you act fast! Then for a nice return to the 60’s..withsome nice little stats there along with a trip down memory lane. I include this link at the bottom because I want us to see how much we have changed since we lost our innocence.. 40 YEARS AGO…Many of the hippies that were dropping out on acid and calling for making love not war…would it not be interesting to know how many of those dropping out and calling for change were in power today? Well, we know many of them are Professors in our Universities…many are also in politics in a big way…My how Time just seems to slip away. Our country is in danger of slipping away too if we the peopledo not insist on a return to Common Sense and throw out the Moonbats! They did not like our country then andthey sure are h*ll bent on destroying it, with a little help from their friends.. So get ready to drive..Sally..stop your riding.
Here’s what Phyllis Schlafly, conservative activist and founder of Eagle Forum, recently wrote:
“Obama’s costly, dangerous and altogether bad bill (S. 2433), which could
come up in the Senate any day, is called the Global Poverty Act. So what country’s welfare are you interested in Obama? Is this part of your glorious change? Me thinks you would like to be President of the World. It would
commit U.S. taxpayers to spend 0.7 percent of our Gross Domestic Product on
“Time is of the essence because Senator Joe Biden, the Chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee just issued a report on the Global Poverty Act and it was placed on the Senate Legislative Calendar on Thursday the 24th.
That means that time is of the essence as this potentially massive surrender of your hard-earned tax dollars to the third world may be close to a vote.
Advocates of the Global Poverty Act are claiming that it does not really commit the United States to anything… that it won’t really cost anything… that it simply requires the President — in conjunction with the Secretary of State — to “develop” strategies to alleviate world poverty.In fact, Biden’s report incredulously states, “implementing S. 2433 would cost less than $1 million per year” Yeah, right..we know you by now…we know how you get it done..don’t think we are that stupid please.. Most of you are all lawyers right? Dang shame, we have to darn near be a Rocket scientist to dicipher your mumbo jumbo..
Technically he’s correct… after all, it doesn’t really cost that much to develop and formulate strategies…But such a cleverly worded contention begs the question: Why formulate or develop a strategy if there is no intention to follow through on that strategy? And what would it cost to actually follow through on a strategy to alleviate world poverty? Remember there are loopholes, my friends…
The Global Poverty Act intentionally gives no specific figures but it does contain clues, and those clues are stated repeatedly in the legislation’s reliance on the United Nations Millennium Development Goal.
Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media (says):
“The bill defines the term ‘Millennium Development Goals’ as the goals set
out in the United Nations Millennium Declaration… In addition to seeking to eradicate poverty, that declaration commits nations to banning ’small arms and light weapons’ and ratifying a series of treaties, including the International Criminal Court Treaty, the Kyoto
Protocol (global warming treaty), the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.”
”Those U.N. protocols would make U.S. law on issues ranging from the 2nd Amendment to energy usageand parental rights all subservient to United Nations whims.”
“The legislation, if approved, dedicates 0.7 percent of the U.S. gross national product to foreign aid, which over 13 years… would amount to $845 billion ‘over and above what the U.S. already spends.’”
“The plan passed the House in 2007 ‘because most members didn’t realize what was in it.’ What a joke our leaders have become..and aren’t most of these people lawyers? You would think they would spend a little more time to understand or at least recognize the lawyer speak..eh? Congressional sponsors have been careful not to calculate the amount of foreign aid spending that it would require.” Yeah, you like to just do it and then give us the bad news..
And, how would the United States pay for this $845 BILLION commitment? According to Kincaid, who published a report on the legislation; “A global tax will clearly be necessary to force American taxpayers to provide the money.”Let’s see, gas is going up out the wazoo and groceries..well, what’s the price of dog food made in China?..we can sit in the dark..wear heavy coats in winter…fan ourselves in summer..and heck..let’s just stay home folks…no need to go anywhere..oh, a job you say…sorrreee…better get 2 more of them..surely we can each work 3 jobs…who needs sleep anyway? Oh drats forgot again…when we start giving the power away and they redistribute property, gather our weapons, maybe they have in mind to just house and feed us too…then no need to do anything except what they assign for us..whoopdedoo! JUST HERD THE SHEEP! Is that not what Communist countries did…assign several familes to live together and selected who would be educated in the field of the Governments choice? When we let the UN do what it would like to do..have the power it wants..at our expense..don’t think for a minute that we are not far away from this that would sound insane to us.. Radical..yes..the Bill is radical! It does not serve American Interests…but then remember they are not serving American interests…They are into ‘ONE WORLD DOMINANCE! Wonder if they have selected who is to run this vast empire?
We have been in existence as the first country to exercise such a Radical (in the day) Republic. We have had a little over 200 years with this great experiment with Freedom for people to be as much in charge of their own lives as possible..We did not want a Monarchy! (Are we going to now have a UN Monarchy?) I kinda like it that way..don’t you? When I make a mess of my life…well, at least it’s my mess, I am the one responsible. As Truman is well known for his famous quote..’The Buck Stops Here’.
And that $845 BILLION global tax is in addition to our nation’s current Foreign Aid programs, which, in 2006, cost American taxpayers about $300 BILLION!
It Gets Worse! Here are some of the additional provisions of the Millennium Development Goal: Read very carefully….
a “currency transfer tax,” that is, a tax imposed on companies and individuals who must exchange dollars for foreign currency;
a “tax on the rental value of land and natural resources”
a “royalty on worldwide fossil energy projection — oil, natural gas, coal”;
And how about this:“fees for the commercial use of the oceans, fees for airplane use of the skies, fees for use of the electromagnetic spectrum, fees on foreign exchange transactions, and a tax on the carbon content of fuels.” Just give us some more fees…yeah, that’s right…we want to be a third world country…
a “standing peace force,” meaning a standing United Nations army that
might, in time, be large enough to force us to bend to its will;
a “UN arms register of all small arms and light weapons,” the beginning of
the endof the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution;
the “eradication of poverty” by the “redistribution [of] wealth and land”
How do you suppose the United Nations expects to “redistribute” the land and the wealth? And what country do you think the third-world majority will go after first?
cancellation of “the debts of developing countries,”
and “a fair distribution of the earth’s resources.” Who decides what is fair?
and “political control of the global economy.” Yeah, Let’s just get rid of Sovereignty and elections..
In other words, it’s a blueprint for a world government, owned and operated by the United Nations. One thing is clear: the Millennium Development Goal is a dagger aimed at the heart of America.
While the Global Poverty Act, as presently championed by its Senate supporters, embraces certain aspects of the Millennium Development Goal, one should wonder if some of our legislators also support land and wealth “redistribution.”<…>.
Dr. Jeffrey D. Sachs — a Columbia University economist — is monitoring the Millennium Development Goal for the United Nations.
In his 2005 report to Kofi Annan — based on the research of 265 “poverty specialists” — Sachs criticized the United States for giving only a mere $16.3 billion a year to alleviate global poverty. What was it the Saudi’s gave? what did the others give..US gives more than anyone…whoo hoo…don’t believe those oil rich countries gave mucho..You forgot to include all the other aid Americans give..big boy!
He argued that we should spend at least an additional $30 billion a year. And Sachs has decreed that the only way to force the United States to commit that much money is to IMPOSE A GLOBAL TAX. Has Senator Obama— along with the other Senate co-sponsors — introduced the Global Policy Act at least in partial obedience to Sachs’ wishes?
Phyllis Schlafly claims:
“The Global Poverty Act would be a giant step toward the Millennium Goals of global governance and international taxes on Americans. Tell your Senators to kill this un-American bill.”
And yes, just in case you think the massive amounts of your tax dollars that were wasted under the United Nation’s Oil for Food program were an aberration, and that such a thing could not eventually happen on a more massive scale were the Global Poverty Act to sneak through the Senate, Doug Powers, writing for WorldNetDaily.com made this observation:”Not long ago, Nigeria’s ‘anti-corruption commission’ — runner-up in the ‘oxymoron of the year’ competition, second only to ‘U.S. Senate Intelligence’ — found that past rulers of Nigeria have stolen or misused billions of dollars.”
“The commission discovered that the amount of money ‘missing’ adds up to all the Western aid given to Africa in four decades. Obama, Hagel and Cantwell want to throw more at them. Apparently they won’t be happy until there are trillions of our tax dollars stolen by crooked leaders and warlords.” Follow the Money Honey!
Unfortunately, the Global Poverty Act is still flying under the radar, but
not for long. There is hope. We know, and we can stop this vicious bill — provided we act RIGHT NOW!
Senator Obama’s Global Poverty Act has already passed the House (many Members unfortunately voted in favor of it without carefully noting exactly what was in it) So what else is new? I wonder if they ever consider consequences or just show up occassionally for their pet projects? and President Bush may very well sign it!
That’s why it must be stopped, and it must be stopped NOW!

Let them know in no uncertain terms that you are watching and you will not tolerate massive United Nations style giveaways that are passed in the dark of night — or in broad daylight for that matter. Tell them that putting us on the road to give billions to petty tyrants and dictators is NOT a solution to poverty.
This bill can come up for a vote at any time. Demand that our conservative legislators do whatever it takes — a filibuster if necessary — to stop this bill dead in its tracks.
