On the way to Grandpa's house

When I was a young lad, there was a sign that said:

"Get US out of the UN" .

And then an address for the John Birch Society. One time I wrote that information down as we passed by....

I did a bit of research, and found out a LOT about the UN. It wasn't pretty then....and it is even less pretty now. They were on the edge of irrelevant 45 years ago...

Fast Forward to today, when I read that the UN had decided that Israel is the top Human Rights Violator,,,,And the top violator of the rights of women....and a whole slew of other denunciations against Israel. 
Add in the total mismanagement of the UN's peacekeeping, it's inability to respond to any aggressions, or any natural or other disaster, the fact that they constantly whine for funding, but have money for sculptures and other useless but symbolic things and I can't help but wonder why, exactly, the US is a part of the UN any more?

And why do we allow the UN to take up all that space in New York? They could go to Brussels and take up space in the now useless NATO headquarters......Yeah, that NATO, the one where most of the member countries have spend so much on socialist programs that they cannot field any military (see Germany and France and Belgium for examples) and are depending (again) on the US to provide the teeth while exerting (partial) control over our military.

Really, the US should give up on such organizations. They are divorced from reality, and simply waste money employing (and entertaining_ a bunch of liberals whose effectiveness is, essentially, zero.

Israel's lobby gets the US in unwinnable wars when we should be protecting our own interests.
