No, you're just someone who is trying to demonize a group of people that do not support Obama by suggesting that they only oppose him because they're racists. Its not fooling anyone.
Myself, I have a great many disagreements with the man's policies. That's why I'm not voting for him.

Its not only the money. Its the small print about loosing our sovereignty. Has anyone read what I wrote and others about this bill? The UN is a nightmare for any and all people to live under. These clowns in the UN are NOTHING but the same crooks that have helped screw up ALL of Africa. Since 1960 they have milked the problem to a point that they cannot even begin to fix the problems. If you think for one minute we as a nation should give in to this madness, bend over and kiss your butt and everything you think of as your freedoms away. Those of you who feel that everybody should be able to do what ever they feel like and be anything they want to be are sadly mistaken. These buttheads will regulate every move in your life you will make and tax you for it at the highest rate the feel like! THINK PEOPLE AND READ YOUR DAMNED HISTORY. THIS IS TOTAL BS!!!! No nation can afford this...thats right, NO NATION!!. ONE WORLD WILL NOT WORK WITH HUMAN NATURE WHAT IT IS AND WHAT IT WILL BE IN THE FUTURE!!!!.

I am sick and tired of all you communist losers from other countries telling Americans to give some more of our hard earned tax dollars to the rest of the thieving bastards around the world, so another socialist - communist dictator can fatten his bank account. WE HAVE HAD IT! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We need to pull out of Iraq, Afganistan, U.N., NATO, NAFTA,GATT and the rest of the rip-off the taxpayer bull# schemes that these worthless con artist in Washington come up with.
TO THE EU, AFRICA, NATO, UN, AND THE REST OF THE WORLD:
WE DON'T CARE IF YOU THINK WE'RE GREEDY.
WE DON'T CARE IF YOU THINK WE SHOULDN'T HAVE FIREARMS.
WE NEED TO LEAVE THE REST OF THE PLANET ALONE AND LET THEM FEND FOR THEMSELVES. Eventually Europe will start ANOTHER world war, maybe we should just let the commie-socialist-muslim dictators around the globe destroy themselves, no more assistance or foreign aid from us.
Goodbye and good riddance.

Someone clarify. Is this serious? The end of the "American way", as we know it?

doesn't it s--- you when your leaders are handing out bucket loads of money to other countries when your own country is in dire need of those same funds? That is as good as treason!
Global Poverty Act of 2007 - Directs the President, through the Secretary of State, to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the U.S. foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day.
Requires the strategy to contain specific and measurable goals and to consist of specified components, including: (1) continued investment or involvement in existing U.S. initiatives related to international poverty reduction and trade preference programs for developing countries; (2) improving the effectiveness of development assistance and making available additional overall United States assistance levels as appropriate; (3) enhancing and expanding debt relief as appropriate; (4) mobilizing and leveraging the participation of businesses and public-private partnerships; (5) coordinating the goal of poverty reduction with other internationally recognized Millennium Development Goals; and (6) integrating principles of sustainable development and entrepreneurship into policies and programs.
