Flipping and Fighting the Injurious UN

Knowing what you know about my views of how the UN is one of the most baneful entities in the history of the planet, can you imagine how I got on the email distribution list from this also baneful entity, UNA-USA. Here's the email:

Dear CODY,

Over the course of the past year, the United Nations has taken a number of significant steps to strengthen the organization - measures that, unfortunately, have received little US media coverage. Meanwhile, in the aftermath of the UN Oil-for-Food Program controversy, cases of sexual abuse by UN peacekeeping personnel, and criticism of the Human Rights Commission, Congress will be expecting quick results this year on UN reform. As it considers key decisions concerning US funding of the United Nations, it is important that Congress hears about the progress made thus far on UN reform.

A strong and effective United Nations enables the United States to work cooperatively with international partners to deal with global problems that no single country can resolve on its own. Although there are important reform proposals that have yet to be finalized, Congress should be made aware that substantial progress has been made, and that the United States will need to demonstrate active and responsible leadership if the current historic opportunity to renew the United Nations is to be fully realized.

Please take a moment to inform your members of Congress about the important reforms already implemented by the United Nations by visiting www.PleaseIgnoreAllTheEndlessStarvationInEveryCountryTheUNHasEverGoneInto.com.

I have a slightly better idea than writing our idiot sold-out cronyized politicians from the damnable Democratic and equally damnable Republican parties and telling them about how we're proud of some non-existent reforms that the wrongly-premised UN wants to pretend matters:

Let's all write our politicians and tell them to please, asap, shut down this baneful entity and free the world from its unpurposely hurtful effects. Let's get what end up too often being socialist, destructive, over-paid cronies from the UN out of Palestine, out of South America, out of Africa and out of prosperity and health's way. And let's work on putting in self-sustaining, virtuous systems full of protection of individual property and life.

And, yes, of course, I'm serious. Dead serious. No, wait, lemme rephrase.

I'm ALIVE in the most amazing city in the most amazing country in the most amazing time to be alive. Instead of all of these fruitless (literally and figuratively) UN programs that haven't done a goddamn thing to alleviate hunger and squalid poverty in any of the countries they've purportedly tried to help, we should be pouring those monies and efforts into creating self-sustaining businesses and infrastructures. And that means we need to stop these self-dealing, self-enriching crony bureaucrats that is what unforunately what collectively make up the UN.

And maybe in 20 or 50 or 100 years people in those places we get the UN out of might have a chance to be alive in such a wondrous place and time too.

Okay, Cody, breathe.

Well stated Cody. The world would be be a better place if the UN building fell into the East River.

You should read Romeo Dallaire's Shake Hands With the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda.

A guy in charge of the UN mission trying to do so much and having his hands tied during this tragic event.
