I think she's doing a great job as Ambassador to the UN. She's one of the best cabinet choices, along with the Mad Dog.
Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
Exactly...what do you suggest? I realize it's tough for a lefty to reconcile a tax cut and spending reductions, but here we are. Over $20T in debt.
On topic: Nikki Haley is a decent pol. I hope her next suggestion is defunding to entire UN. Move the HQ to ___________.

Jerusalem is reason enough. The world ticking us off should be accepted without response? The US provides more money to the UN than all other countries combined. We should have a voice. I'm not against the UN as a concept, but it's a concept whose execution is flawed. Name three positive things the UN has done in the past three years.
We need to manage the billions spent better. Next up Welfare Reform and infrastructure improvements. Imagine turning low income families and non tax payers into tax paying Americans.
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.... now who's bringing the hot wings? :jester:
Now you give a damn about the deficit? Where were you when Obama doubled it?
Nikki Haley is doing well for Trump, while maintaining a relationship with establishment Republicans. I like her, and what she said at the UN. I'm quite sure that she is keeping all options open for career advancement, including getting along with the establishment Republicans. UN Ambassadorship is a relatively safe place for a politician who is learning the international ropes, because they are mostly delivering messages. If she doesn't get blown up along the way by bad foreign policy decisions (or spin to that effect), she could go far.
I like the message that she and our president sent to the rest of the world. Even better, I like the follow up actions.
Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
Being a career lefty, you live and die by zero sum economic models because your religion/ideology requires a large element of class envy politics. You probably still ridicule trickle down economics, while pretending that it is something different from the plain old American capitalism that built this country. The rich get richer and the poor get old Buicks and big screen TVs.
The tax cuts to corporations and small businesses have much more value as an economic stimulus than the tax cuts to the middle class. It may not seem fair, but it works because then they are dealing with reality, rather than emotional prejudices...plus, it stimulates entrepreneurial spirit and that continually infuses new blood into the capitalistic mix.
If the Republicans actually had the balls to do what is needed, they would tax the poor, so that they would start asking where their tax money is being spent. Then, they would do across the board flat tax rates, and cut the spending to balance the budget. It will never get done, because austerity sucks, and the Democrats would be promoting riots in the streets to an even greater extent than they now do with their ginned up racism protests.
I'm thinking Juarez.....or possibly Antarctica...
I'd say "Mars", except it looks like we might actually be going there sometime fairly soon. How about the heart of the Sun?
You can throw all you want at this. The bottom line is the UN has been put on notice that the US is not an open ended ATM.
Once again your twisting numbers and subjects to make your anti Republican agenda. Something good has happened. It has nothing to do with a
projected deficit that the Democrats project over 10 years without taking into account any cuts in spending.
Seriously? One throw away line about how libs are all screaming about people keeping their own money, but then want to have us continue pumping cash into an organization that has nothing but anti-US feelings at heart, and that’s all you focus on?
And tell me exactly what you have against penguins.................. :tooth: :rotflmao:

Obama. The legacy of Wilson lives on!
Don't forget the 25Mil the US pays for building maintenance and another 7 Mil. for security and who the heck knows how many millions more on parking, transportation, catered food and things we will never know.
Seems that when it comes to the UN, the rest of the world owes the US respect if nothing else. Send the HQ to some 3rd world country and cut back the % we pay and there goes a huge portion of our budget back into the US account.
Your Messiah spent eight years handing out our money to any country who asked and toured the world kissing ass and apologizing for America's behavior and just how much respect did it generate? You are seriously deluded.
Like maybe starting immediately we will give zero dollars and no longer participate in your meetings? You have 90 days to get out of the property in New York. On the 91st day the building will be demolished along with all of the listening, recording and whatever devices
Yep....and you're all going to be jailed until you pay your parking and traffic tickets.....
