Do you get those in your area? Have you heard them? The female announcer says that if you pay ONLY ONE DOLLAR for your glass of tap water (always free of charge) at restaurants for the next week, children from across the planet will be guaranteed the blessing of clean and safe drinking water.
Problem is… you pay that buck to the United Nations. Alright… UNICEF.
They call it the Tap Project. As in tap your wallet.
You see, the people of the United States have been miserly and uncaring to the people of the planet. You haven’t given a single nickel to help the poor. You didn’t help the Haitian hurrican victims or the Japanese tsunami victims or the earthquake victims or the….
You’ve done absolutely nothing and that you have clean drinking water should be a matter of shame to you.
And as for my fellow Americans, thanks for not pissing upstream and thanks for understanding the concepts of basic hygiene which took us all of about 0 years to comprehend. That other parts of the world haven’t yet figured that out is……Our fault, of course.
But back to this UN campaign….
Why would I give a single penny to the most corrupt, morally bankrupt and useless organization on the face of the planet into which countless of my confiscated tax dollars are used to undermine my country and finance anti-semitic, anti-American, anti-capitalist tyranny worldwide?
Well, for the CHILDREN, of course. That old crutch is still useful.
If I thought for one second that the proceeds would actually go to children in need I might be inclined to help out. But the preponderance of the evidence suggests that the dough will be used the way all UN proceeds are used. For hookers, booze anti-semitism and anti-Americanism. Let’s just presume, for a moment, that this is a worthwhile project and innocent children who have no access to potable water were to be provided for. I’d still be fine with it if their parents weren’t teaching these little darlings that America is the Great Satan and even though they’ve given you that clean water source it is still your moral imperative to kill the Great Satan.
That the UN has the audacity to scold us at the dinner table using surrogates that are merely unsuspecting food servers as their agents is reprehensible. But don’t take it out on them. They are not at fault. They simply want to make a living.
I intend to politely decline.
But don’t push me or it might turn into an international civics lesson.
