We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The Obama administration has marked its first foray into the UN human rights establishment by backing calls for limits on freedom of expression. The newly-minted American policy was rolled out at the latest session of the UN Human Rights Council, which ended in Geneva on Friday. American diplomats were there for the first time as full Council members and intent on making friends.
That is creepy.
- And in Ottowa, Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant testify to the Committee on Justice and Human Rights on Monday (h/t, SDA). Videos at YouTube. Here's one of them (the second one):
I watched all 7 vids, yesterday, and it was eye-opening. Two questions:
1/ Did you watch all 7?
2/ Do you see any concerns (crystal-balling) for my good neighbours south o' the 49th with regards to you current POTUS? I can see a parallel...maybe because I've been watching (and voting against this bu**$**t for years up here)...to no avail it appears.
My American neighbours shoukld be very, very wary IMO.
