    White House objects to UN calling US 'deadbeat'

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House objected Thursday to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's description of the United States as a "deadbeat" donor to the world body.
    Ban used the phrase Wednesday during a private meeting with lawmakers at the Capitol, one day after he met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

    White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Ban's "word choice was unfortunate," given that the U.S. is the largest contributor to the United Nations.

    The United States pays 22 percent of the organization's nearly $5 billion operating budget but is perennially late paying its dues.

    Asked whether Ban should retract his comment, Gibbs said some recognition by Ban of the U.S. role would be appropriate.

    "I think given the contribution that the American taxpayer makes, I do think it would be appropriate to acknowledge that role," Gibbs told reporters at his daily briefing.

    Ban, apparently concerned about his choice of words, issued a statement late Wednesday saying the U.S. "generously supports the work of the U.N., both in assessed and voluntary contributions." Ban also said he enjoys "an excellent working relationship with the United States and appreciates the many ways that it supports the United Nations."

    You just don't understand the Korean dictionary.

    Definition of "Deadbeat":

    "One who generously supports, both in assessed and voluntary contributions."

    I simply do not understand why we continue to be a part of this sham organization.

  3. I've said it before and I'll say it again....f*** the UN.

    We should show them what deadbeat really means. Pay nothing and demand more until they leave.

  9. So, the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. has in the past essentially call those of us who are productive, tax paying members of society deadbeats for not sharing enough of our wealth. In this case just who is the pot and who the kettle?

  12. Time to end this "experiment." The League of Nations was about as successful. We could rent out office space in the prime location. The U.N. is a useless entity that we have propped up for far too long. TJ

    The United Nations can rot in hell. If I were the president, they wouldn't be getting jack ****.

    And if they had a problem with it, then they can go **** themselves.

    If I were elected President, I would appoint a potted plant as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. It would be just as effective.

    Art, too bad it isn't the U.S. of Art. Look at the context though and I probably would have come away with the same response as this bonehead.

    "Ban used the phrase Wednesday during a private meeting with lawmakers at the Capitol, one day after he met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office." (Emhasis added)

    What the hell do you expect after a meeting with our leading idiot?;)
