Seems some commenters here....support quitters.
At the end of the day, these empty offerings remove these people from the nations discussion table regarding business in America.
The offerings will be news for a week...and then forgotten, meanwhile business of the country will continue on...without their input.
Lots of hate going around....just read some of these posts to see what I'm talking about.
A mob pulls down/destroys a historic statue on government property and that criminal act is supposed to project love/respect/tolerance? ISIS did similar acts not long ago....will the mob kill in the name of "Justice" in the coming days? Lawlessness....regardless of the intent...is still violating the laws of the lan. The idiot who killed/injured those people that day...WILL have his day in court and will be judged in a court of law. I have no doubt justice will be served and he will be put down or in prison for the rest of his life. The key is it will be done with clear minds and based on FACTS...not emotions or conjecture.
Nope, it's #McCarthyism2017.
I didn't vote for Trump for his congeniality...I voted for him to put Americas best interests forward.
Regarding Trump pulling from the Paris Accord (I support his decision)....nothing prevents anyone in the US from still working on reducing emissions or Co2....but it does save the U.S. 2 Billion of the 3 Billion Obama generously offered. note: 10 Billion in commitments...and America was 30% of that. THAT is why the other leaders were REALLY ticked off for.
The underlying organization supported by the Paris Accord has stated a goal of 100 Billion annually in fund raising and that is the floor...not the ceiling of what they want. I'm waiting to hear all the other nations putting in more.
Seems lots of people want to bash America....but I don't recall one time in history...where a nation has refused our money or help.....or NOT expected America to pay the bulk of a budget.
Fact, America is 20 Trillion in debt...time we paid down our debt and expect other nations to pay more of the bills.
One of my favorite quotes:
"The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money."
