Top Ten UN Slogans . . .

  1. 10. If an impotent, bloated bureaucracy can't solve it, it's best left festering.

    Love these, Timothy.

    The UN is like a parent that keeps threatening and never follows through. The "kids" know they can jo whatever they want so long as they're will to listen to some pointless yammering in the background. Here are a few more.

    11. Genocide happens.

    12. When rogue nations murder millions, you can count on us to frown and scold.

    13. Empty Threats 'R US

    14. When you care enough to corrupt the very best

    15. 99.4 % impure.

    Great post. Unfortunately, the U.N. is so busy trying to find the hypocrisy in the West that they are practicing the same hypocrisy they condemn.

    Is that an endorsement? I thought you were libertarian. . .

    In actuality, I DO prefer a useless body that calls itself the 'world government' than one that has any real power. It just annoys me how many politicians actually think that we do or should buy into the kayfabe.

    NO, I'm a non-fan smark of wrestling, also.

    Of course, when I was much younger. . . Paul Boesch and Mid-South Wrestling ruled. I spent many a Saturday at the Sam Houston Coliseum rooting on 'Junkyard Dog'.

    NAFTA is to the Common Market (now European Union) as UN is to World Government, just a step along the way of a work in progress...

    I am always so saddened by the attacks on the UN _ I know it is imperfect but at present it is the best we have for international negotiations.

    But perhaps you are right - let it die.

    Let us replace it with CHOGM and APEC and the EU as well as other regional interest groups. Let us see how well some of the more developed countries which, currently have an inordinate influence in the UN, will do when there are economic and political power cells springing up around the world eroding that influence.

    I dislike NAFTA as much as dislike the UN.

    Free Trade doesn't need a government mandated "Free trade" agreement.

    It's a contradiction.

    No, it doesn't, but then it's not "really" about free trade at all. The Common Market was supposed to be about free trade, but was "really" about the eradication of sovereign states, and the creation instead of one giant state with one currency under one central government, as in European Union. NAFTA is the same plan for this continent and probably South America as well. There are similiar "free trade" programs for the Asian countries and Africa. The objective has nothing to do with trade, that's just how the states are conned into giving up their independence.

    Oh, darn it, indigo girl, I just hate it when you shatter my illusions that way.
