Monday, April 4


I have been so absorbed in the Terri Schindler Schiavo controversy, and her subsequent death (and that of beloved Pope John Paul II), that I haven't linked in awhile to one of my favorite writers in the blogosphere, Rodger Morrow, although throughout the unfolding of the Terri Schiavo nightmarish tragedy I was still a regular reader of Mr. Morrow. His post this morning, however, compells a link, as it points with appropriate dismay to the United Nations' profound lack of standards and rank hypocrisy in the area of human rights.

In his post, Rodger quotes U.S. Senator Rudy Boschwitz, Chairman of the United States' delegation to the U.N.'s Commission on Human Rights:

This commission must be made up of the firefighters, not the arsonists.
The Senator was alluding of course (and Rodger cites them) to the many countries who are members of that commission and which, by their egregious conduct, betray that "human rights" is a misnomer under their tyrannical regimes. Just another example, among many, as to why the United Nations is held in such low esteem by so many Americans, except of course maybe a Ted Turner, or a Bill Clinton.

The United Nations is a symbol of decay, decadence, and wholesale mismanagement.

Woodrow Wilson's dream has been corrupted beyond recognition.
