#1 I haven't posted anything in a while and as you can see, I like the picture feature. Nice work Fred. You can delete the helicoper if the mood strikes you.

#2 Damn, that boy can write. I'm ready to grab my pitchfork, head to NYC and burn the phoockers out.

#3 I think we'll eventually pull out, but not for a decade or so.

Dubya is disinclined to do it, and we'll have to go thru a Dem revival in the interim; but after that, I think we will "regretfully" exit.

#4 And it's not just the UN, but the whole multi-culti thingy.

I'd like to give it to Babs and DiFi, JFK and Teddy, then give 'em a test on the content. No, come to think of it, I hafta rearrange my sock drawer.

#7 Agreed, HC. Methinks Steyn attended Ed's School of Reality (our ed) - he echoes many points that I've seen posted here - particularly ed.

The article is as much a vivisection as opinion. Splayed open, the UN is rot and corruption in (almost?) every aspect, in every action, in every organ.

A dead rat on America's kitchen floor.

#9 With some of it's guts spattered into Canada. We've had our horror story of ineffectual UN crap that led to well, the usual horrors.

I have such a loathing for the UN now, but as a starry-eyed child of the 60's, it seemed like a great idea.

Over time, we of the 60's have fallen complacently into the comforts of our small individual lives -- lost in the picayune market economy and less challenging philosophies. Otherwise, the current UN wouldn't exist.

Even more so today, we are the "children of the universe" and with all the hope and responsibility encompassed in the task of shifting paradigms, we must complete the journey.

The philosophies and ideals of that era (and the necessities of this) are NOT nostalgia. They are our legacy.

#10 Tell me, why are there so many train wreck graphics on the Burhg?

Because there are so many 'train wrecks'?
