Well -- your drug is now weighing the entire global economy down as if I didn't have enough to worry about that according to -- United Nations warning out today claiming that you're.
That you -- why.
It's hurting the world bottom line through increased health care costs and productivity loss.
In fact that is the -- a way of taking my picture putting it outside its entrance and just saying have you seen this man.
Former McCain get a direct report O'Connell says is surely the UN has better things to do.
I guess they do not forward in the middle bullies crises and you know the Middle East is about to blow up there are other things on their mind.
Well that's absolutely right this report out by the UN that reads like a Mike Bloomberg nanny state special on a global scale and frankly the bot that the prime goal of the UN is for peacekeeping in with a heart a thousand dead in Syria and with.
The worst protests in the last decade and Turkey and what possible war between Iran and Israel.
And possible war between South Korea North Korea I think that they're not doing real good job on their primary goal and that's not even the best part -- The best part of the United States fund 25% of the UN activities so yes you're my tax dollars being wasted in -- -- -- -- -- else.
The UN is about is.
If it it basically is about as efficient as the GSA on steroids of that Chanel got a lot of people with some collateral General Services Administration there but you know -- I was -- -- trying to understanding give them about the down on this.
That -- there was global concerted effort to rein in let's say on obese and it.
That the -- has been linked to a variety of diseases that there might be some good to come evidence is they can't get there.
It is you know their hands on on any of these global crisis including what to do -- in Syria where the guy is -- it you know killing -- people.
And and what to do -- North Korea where the guys are blinking as people.
That and then then that maybe this is live something weekend what do make of why I think what they're trying to say here is that essentially if we can tackle malnutrition -- nutrition that that the global -- -- will be better the problem is when this -- -- -- identifies the long term problem provides no real fixes and essentially it's gonna take a lot of buying from a lot of different -- I'm not saying -- front altruistic good thing to do.
I'm just saying the ability to accomplish this is just short of -- -- it's not really gonna happen but.
I -- what they're saying.
You know but at the same time a lot of individual countries should be very worried about this and frankly they're not paying attention.
And that's really my problem aid for the U -- going there and tell them to do this but are gonna do it all the gonna do is ask for more money from the United States and given the waste fraud and abuse in the UN.
Guess what it's gonna go somewhere else and Utley and to wonder if globally certainly the United States depends it was turning away from big government because in this country zoos are reducing scandalous behavior.
It -- in many places abroad where they're saying you know.
These promises that were -- made you know years ago -- just unrealistic.
And then we can't keep them.
And then a lot of folks are saying that in the process of keeping -- its -- and through the nose to provide -- so there might be a global backlash against us.
Why -- -- very well could be a global backlash against -- my issue with the UN as it tries to do some good things unfortunately it doesn't work by the golden rule which is those who give the -- -- to make the rules and essentially the US sort of pushing and any sort of way -- -- goal you know within the UN is all gonna work out and I think essentially there could be some backlash from the UN telling people what to do.
Individual governments around the world should be concerned about under nutrition and malnutrition but you know what's even their -- so wacky and it is the idea that day -- -- -- the US are you seem to have the most money.
Yeah yeah you know as you deal that that would be like someone treating you out to dinner and and and you bitching about the size of their -- -- other words like shut up right I mean it it seems very simple.
Yeah exactly it's it's gotten out of control nobody knows what's going on in in what what's even worse is is essentially many of the members -- in the UN who just wanna keep -- money from the government that are giving.
Like the US and some of the other bigger countries are essentially not even paying their own -- are forcing us to make the rules it's not a very efficient society.
And essentially the UN may have a great mission but the question is whether -- -- times past.
Car thank you very much sort of -- always good to have him -- -- The format and John McCain campaign -- earth orbit O'Connell in Washington are all just.
