United Nations and Pro Wrestling

A Washington Times article (http://www.washtimes.com/world/20050608-115321-5117r.htm) was e-mailed to me. This article has got to be about one of the most corrupt organizations on the face of the earth, the United Nations. It is financially supported by the United States. If you send financial aid to an organization aren't you telling them you support their policies? So we have been telling the United Nations that things like the oil-for-food program and sexual abuse by United Nations peacekeeping troops are acceptable. I don't think they are and these a just a couple of reasons I'd like to see the United States give up it's membership in the United Nations. Since we can't get enough of our elected officials to agree to do that I feel the action mentioned in the above article is a step in the right direction.

When I was young one of our neighbors was a professional wrestler, (Thor Hagen, one of the good guy's) since I ran around with his kid's I became a wrestling fan. This article and the United Nations reminded me of something that happened during a wrestling match some time in the late 50's or early 60's. One of the bad guy's had been disqualified. He then attacked one of the officials at the time keepers table. After the referee got him pulled off the official and sent him to the locker room he announced that he would levy a fine against him. He said that the only way to hurt these bullies was to hit them in the pocketbook. OK, professional wrestling is probably fake. The referee got it right. The only way we will get the United Nations to reform it's self will be to hit it in the pocketbook. Cut their funding.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Guess what? I despise the U.N. more than the ACLU. I look at it this way. The ACLU is the most dangerous organization in America...the U.N. is the most dangerous organization in the world. I realize that the U.N. is in America...but you know what I'm saying.

It sounds like, for whatever reason, there isn't very much support for the House bill to cut funding. I would imagine that the Executive Branch would see that kind of challange to the UN as a counter-productive move right now . . . right now when Bush is trying to mend fences around the world.

Personally, I think it would be a good thing to do. I don't think cutting ourselves off from the UN altogether (essentially kiling the UN) would be a smart move unless there was something to replace it with; it does *some* good things and I really believe a forum of some kind is needed.

I agree the U.N is a fallen organization in the sense that Lucifer was a fallen one. I don't agree we should pull out of the organization just yet. Not because it isn't evil, but because we need to do more to try and reform it. If then, after a decent amount of effort we still get nowhere, then we should look at other options like creating a parallel body to the U.N but one which works more Democratically and which gets results.

OK Dem,

Representative Hyde has the right idea and his bill passed the House. I heard him on the radio today and he didn't seem optimistic about the bill getting through the Senate.

OK, from a european point of view, I'd tend to agree with the "okdemocrat"'s view... in a certain sense the UN represents a higher governing authority which is too far removed from reality and thus prone to misuse by governments and business...

There is a ground-swell of consensus growing here in Europe against the proposed constitution and any form of imposed "super government" so in a way I think we're both looking at different variants of the same trend...

hope this makes sense...

Okdemocrat, Thank you. I'm sure most of you don't know, my Nephews son was in a serious car accident yesterday morning. He is in a coma at this time.
