I told everyone that Obama was going to give the international community the internet (as if it was his to give.)

And everyone laughed.

What do you want me to say?

That’s gonna go “over like a fart in church”. If a Blue Helmet knocks at my door, that’ll be his/her last act on this earth.

There won’t be any blue helmets showing up at your door. they’ll create ‘regulations’ then enforce them through internet protocols.

How do you plan on combatting that?

I have a suggestion. Since the USA created the internet and a host of other country’s don’t like how it’s developed over time; let them create their own internet and just leave ours alone. That way, I’ll still be able to verbally castigate liberals, progressives and dims.

“internet protocols”

Ignore them.

Start a new network that doesn’t restrict the free flow of information, and reap the inevitable profits :)

Misleading headline. The UN isn’t regulating anything, they are just having another one of their meetings to make proposals that carry no weight and are unenforceable on anyone who doesn’t voluntary choose to comply. Big whoop!

I second that notion.

Is there any way to remotely lock every door in the UN building, permanently?

I wonder...

This is probably about imposing a GLOBAL TAX.

And This: Emrich said one proposal, to be funded by $53B in U.S. dollars, is to connect North and South America using a massive telecom pipeline. Another rule would cover cell phone batteries. This is ridiculous. It's always the U.S. that is "expected" to fund the globalists agenda and take in refugees from the most depraved parts of the 3rd and 4th world.

It needs to be demolished and removed, wishfully with all the turd-world a-holes still inside:

Several cruise missiles would do it...

You're making me nostalgic for my younger days hanging out in rural Michigan where the militia types would regularly hold Blue Helmet Shoots.

I used to use this as part of an email sig, until last year, when I made-up a better one:

Those UN Blue Helmets make great planters, once the requisite 7.62x51mm "drain holes" are installed.

“It needs to be demolished and removed, wishfully with all the turd-world a-holes still inside:”

I often wonder if 9/11 would have been considered a tragedy if they had taken out the UN building instead.

Hopefully in 5 days we end Obama. Then the right can work to stop all crackpot ideas Obama and his minions have been trying to implement.

Mebbe, but in 6 days, the lame duck session begins, and Obama and the Senate Dems will attempt to ramrod through every controversial measure they didn’t dare raise before the election...just sayin’

My wife wants to get rid of cable and the internet. If the UN controls it she’ll get her wishes.
