The Stopped Clock is Right

A stopped clock is right twice a day.

Every now and then the United Nations does something that makes my lower jaw hit the floor. Usually it's because they take their astonishing stupidity to even more incredible heights, heights of stupidity which I previously thought unattainable.

Even more astonishing is when the UN actually does something right.

The UNRWA has suspended aid to Gaza after Hamas confiscated supplies meant for humanitarian aid once too often. This is astonishing. It's like Larry Flynt telling a girl to remain a virgin until she's married. It's like the UAW saying "Our pay and benefits are sufficient." It's astonishing.

It's also noteworthy that Israel was helping in the effort to feed these people and Hamas stole the food for their own people and to sell for profit.

I think the UN effort in Namibia several years ago also worked as planned. It's not often.

Don't get too excited, the latest is that they want to prohibit parents from 'setting the faith' of their children and prohibit spanking as a worldwide law. It never quits but this Gaza information showed there's SOME sanity there. WHO KNEW?

We in the US need to stop funding the UN and take back the high value land in NY that houses that Anti American-perverted debacle...

OK, so that one thing they did right wipes out one thing they did wrong. They are still WAY WAY WAY behind on the score!
