The U.N. Hard at Work
« on: September 26, 2007, 11:11:24 AM »

By Neil Boortz:  

Venezuela's Hugo Chavez decided not to show at the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly ... he's probably too busy trying to turn back the clocks one half hour, to ensure that he is not on the same time as the "imperial United States."

In the meantime, anti-Bush protestors were arrested on the streets of New York outside of the U.N. building. Business as usual. While the arrests were underway Bush was busy yanking the chains of Cuban delegates to the point where they up and left during his speech. Bush said that Cuba is nearing the end of its long rule of a cruel dictatorship. Cuba's Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque said that this was an arrogant and mediocre statement. What Rogue failed to realize ... was that it is true.

But that's not all ... meanwhile the U.N. is cooking up its latest ploy: taxing the world with the Sea Treaty. Now the treaty itself is not new; it has been around since the 1970s. But the US (Democratic-led) Senate is considering ratifying this mess. Let's see exactly what it wants to do. Oh how about this ... one of the provisions would levy a tax on members' undersea operations. It will require nations to pay at least 7% of their under-sea revenues to the U.N. It seems to me that if the U.N. wants to profit from the riches that lie at the bottom of the oceans, then the U.N. can explore and utilize those resources on its own.

Think about this. Guess who has over 400 million barrels of oil under the ocean, just waiting to be tapped? The United States. Guess who has large reserves of natural gas and crystallized methane waiting under water? The United States. Taxes levied on just these U.S. reserves alone would be billions of dollars. Those dollars then go into the U.N.'s funds where they are redistributed to each according to their needs, often to countries that don't have our best interests at heart.

Senator James Inhofe makes a good point: "They are desperate for a way to collect global taxes so they don't have to answer to us every time they do something that's bad."

Yes I did. And may you find a joke that isn't 25 years old. At least JJ had enough semi-wit to invent a new one, kind of.

Historical "trivia":  Why is the U.N. located in the U.S.?

A. Because we are an open democracy where people are free to come and go, even Iran's president.

B. Because we support the U.N.'s goals of international cooperation and growth.

C. Because it is a convenient way to spy on every country with offices there.

Choose "C" as the answer, because that is how the NSA answers the question.
