Dos noticias (una mala y una buena)…

Como en el chiste, pero cambiando el orden, para que nos deje buen sabor de boca. La mala noticia es que Obama quiere que los EE. UU. pongan su presupuesto a disposición los delirantes propósitos del Objetivo Milenio de la ONU para «acabar con la pobreza» (Defeat Obama’s U.N. Global Poverty Act):

By adopting the Millennium goals in 2000, the U.N. escalated its demands to impose international taxes. Specifically, the Millennium called for a «currency transfer tax,» a «tax on the rental value of land and natural resources,» a «royalty on worldwide fossil energy projection – oil, natural gas, coal,» «fees for the commercial use of the oceans, fees for airplane use of the skies, fees for use of the electromagnetic spectrum, fees on foreign exchange transactions, and a tax on the carbon content of fuels.»

It doesn’t bother U.N. sycophants that most U.S. handouts go into the hands of corrupt dictators who hate us and vote against us in the U.N., and that only 30% of our foreign aid ever reaches the poor. U.N. bureaucrats accuse the U.S. of being «stingy» in its handouts to underdeveloped countries.

La «buena» noticia es que el tesoro norteamericano está sin blanca. Mas tieso que la mojama.

El Banco Mundial también participa en la fiesta del «combate contra la pobreza» (Financial crisis: World Bank to give extra $130 billion to poor):

Meanwhile, the bank has lowered its growth forecast for developing country economies to 4.5 percent for 2009, compared to a previous projection of 6.4 percent, due to a combination of financial turmoil, slower exports and weaker commodity prices. It expects high income country economies to contract by 0.1 percent next year while the world economy produces only 1.0 percent growth.

«The response to this crisis must be global, coordinated, flexible and fast,» Zoellick said. «While the challenges need to be addressed at the country level, it is more critical than ever that the international community acts in a coordinated and supportive way to make each country’s task easier.»

No entiendo el razonamiento. De una parte se habla de crisis, pero después dicen que están creciendo al 4,5% en vez de la 6,4. Ya quisiéramos algunos.
