You'll be surprised that a growing majority of Americans have lost faith in the United Nations and wanted the whole UN kicked out of the US.

Another thing, the ground where the UN now stands on was once owned by the Rockefeller family. John D. Rockefeller III "donated" a check of $8.5 millions to the first Secretary-General of the UN in the 1940s. It is still a Rockefeller-owned property, maintained by the Rockefeller Foundation.

You'll be also surprised the people of New York City just about had it with the UN folks! Parking fines. The UN still owe the city millions of dollars in parking fines and the UN doesn't seem all too willing to pay for all for the accumulated ticket infractions. Traffic. New Yorkers have constantly complained about the UN community relations not doing enough to let the locals know about street closures due to any head-of-state or high-mighty ranking official's visit.
A good New Yorker insight for you:

Before you're making sweeping generalization of Americans as suckers, know that there are some Americans who would agree with you on the UN. Don't call them something stupid before you would realize there are some who would share some of your sentiments. :-?
