    I did not know the US had control of the Internet
    to the extent described in this link:

    http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn7757
    (from the link):
    Now the GDMFSOB UN wants to take it over:

    (from the link):
    Like, we really wanna just hand this critical and priceless asset
    over to some UN committee, which will inevitably include members
    such as Red China and Sudan?!

    Screw that.

    Senator Norman Coleman (R, Min.) has come out against this nonsense,
    but not strongly enough, imo:

    Well, I do not care how competent and honest
    the UN ever becomes, I do not want them or
    anyone else to lay a finger on this great resource
    of ours, which among other things must be a great
    counter-terror asset, and I hope this is a case
    where the US government can speak forever with one voice.

    Why don't we give them our nuclear arsenal, while we're at it. Geez, I wouldn't trust the UN not to break my Nalgene, much less watching over the internet.

    Well, the US Government invented the Internet (the Dept of Defense, that is, not Al Gore), so yes they have a lot to do with the Internet....

    Can you imagine, the United Nations running the Internet? It would probably be up and running about 5% of the time, you'd be taxed on usage, of course, all dissenting voices would be silenced ....

    Turning the Internet over to the UN....... that seems like something you'd see on a "Vonage" commercial!

    Too bad for them. Screw the UN. They need to quit whining about the internet and DO something about Sudan.

    I had a thought or three. Are the nations really united? Which ones? Against whom, if anyone? Do the Disunited Nations deserve a body? What about the Independent Nations? Do they deserve a body? Would its HQ be in Manhattan? New York or Kansas? Does the Constitution authorize membership in the UN by the US? Are all nations really equal? Is Senegal deserving of the same vote as China? As the US? Is the UN really just a big fucking excuse for wasting a lot of tax dollars of a lot of countries in pursuit of bullshit liberal ideas? Would you wear a blue helmet? Was Michael New wrong to refuse to salute the UN flag over the US flag? Why didn't conservatives come to his rescue on that?

    The United Nations. I've got questions.

    I see we can agree on something, and I was quite outspoken on the topic. I never enlisted in the UN, nor to serve the UN, and I feel he was within his Constitutional rights and the terms of his US military contract to refuse to serve ANY military force except the US military.

    Where they get you is they then issue you an order and if you refuse to obey it, they find in violation of THAT.

    Right --- neat trick.

    It may not have helped that the only Member of Congress I recall stepping up to the plate for Michael New was James Traficant, D-Ohio, who is/was a little weird, to be charitable. But every once in a blue moon, a wacky Dem gets it right.
