Can I pay more taxes to support a corrupt and impotent World Organization, please?

Some (explicative deleted) UN a$$clown with sh!t for brains is causing quite a storm in the Blogoverse today. Jan Egeland, Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, apparently isn't satisfied with the U.S. contribution to the UN's efforts to help the Tsunami victims. Carping about not getting enough money is one thing, but this jacka$$ actually goes so far as to suggest that the U.S. should raise taxes and give the money over to the UN. If it isn't bad enough for this Norwegian-wood-for-brains to suggest that we should pay more taxes, he actually goes so far as to say WE WANT to pay more taxes to support the UN!

"There are several donors who are less generous than before in a growing world economy," he said, adding that politicians in the United States and Europe "believe that they are really burdening the taxpayers too much, and the taxpayers want to give less. It's not true. They want to give more."

Well Jan (and by the way, that's a GIRL'S name), I have news for you. The American people aren't all that keen on paying more taxes to our own government, let alone shelling it out to the UN. I have an idea for you, Jan. Why don't you ask the French, German and Russian governments along with every company and UN official including Cujo Ananan to fork over the billions in graft they received in the so called "Oil for Food" program to the humanitarian effort? Hell will freeze over before I shell out more of my hard-earned money to the UN. Jan, go get a nice hot cup of STFU and stop speaking for me!

Where are my manners. I completely forgot to give a nod to Ace, at the Ace of Spades HQ (sweet blog name btw) for the scoop on this.

Kerry Haters has Jans phone and fax number up. Give the ol' boy a ring and let him know what Americans really think about taxes.
