Under a plan by Oklahoma State Rep. Tom Newell, funding to OETA would drop by 10 percent for the next two years. After that, funding would be phased out by 20 percent each year until 2020.
Karl: Reparations is the scheme whereby people who never owned slaves are supposed to give money to people who never were slaves. But, first let me introduce myself. I am an "American Expert" advising these "UN Experts" to take a long walk off of a short pier. The UN needs to enrich Africa by relocating itself there to the poorest of the poor countries where their arrogance and superiority can be appreciated. It is my Expert opinion that we ( that is, Americans, among others) tire of your presence where your are ineffectual and not wanted. The dollars that we contribute, which should be the same per person as from any other country, will go much further in a centrally located African country. A central location will also reduce travel costs and man-made jungle warming. The prime real estate left behind should be converted into a tax paying business, living, and cultural center that employs Americans and legal immigrants. There is a presidential candidate experienced in successfully developing such real estate. How quickly can you leave?
