Here are a couple fun little tid-bits about the UN for y'all to chew on...http://www.trevorloudon.com/2012/04/u-n-to-debut-plan-for-world-socialism-in-june-time-for-us-to-exit/
The United Nations is holding its’ “Conference on Sustainable Development” in Rio de Janero, Brazil, over three separate sessions in June, to which organizers, led by UN Conference Secretary-General of Rio+20, Sha Zukang [who 'really doesn't like Americans'], expect 193 attendees from governments, the private sector, NGOs and other stakeholders, according to the Sarah de Sainte Croix March 20, 2012 article in The Rio Times.
The stated themes of this colossal conference, which is structured around a 204-page report titled, “Working Towards a Balanced and Inclusive Green Economy, A United Nations System-Wide Perspective,” are “the green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication,” … [by and through] … “the institutional framework for sustainable development,” according to George Russell’s excellent and quoted-filled FOXNews article today.
More specifically, the debates will cover a … ‘breathtaking array of carbon taxes, transfers of trillions of dollars from wealthy countries to poor ones, and new spending programs to guarantee that populations around the world are protected–from the effects of the very programs the world organization wants to implement.
“Transforming the global economy will require action locally (e.g., through land use planning), at the national level (e.g., through energy-use regulations) and at the international level (e.g., through technology diffusion),” the document says.
It involves “profound changes in economic systems, in resource efficiency, in the composition of global demand, in production and consumption patterns and a major transformation in public policy-making.” It will also require “a serious rethinking of lifestyles in developed countries.”
They gotta 'spread that wealth around' don'tcha know?
And then there's this cute little item...http://www.trevorloudon.com/2012/04/iran-un-the-incorrectly-included-datum/
And the inconsistency would be that the UN should not even be there. According to the UN Peacekeeping Mission site and Wikipedia, there are no ongoing peace keeping missions in Iran involving the UN. So, I have to ask why there are white UN vehicles in the UN Army Day Parade? Why hasn’t the media caught this? Why doesn’t this raise ‘red’ flags with anyone?
*Note: I think the author has a typo here. I think it should read "...why are there white UN vehicles in the IRANIAN
Army Day Parade?" And you know what? That seems like a really valid question to me...
