Life, Liberty, And The Pursuit Of Free Internet Porn

Are you kidding me, internet access is a basic human right? Of course, as long as you have a basic human right to internet access, it follows that you also have a basic human right to a computer, modem, internet service, and hey, you’re going to need a place to plug in and the electricity to make it all work. Can’t afford all that? No problem, it’s a basic human right, demand it all free from your government and, if they can’t or won’t provide it, drag them before the U.N. Human Rights Council for human rights violations!

UN report: Internet access is a basic human right

Access to the Internet, especially during times of political unrest, is a basic human right, says a report released by the United Nations today.

“Facilitating access to the Internet for all individuals, with as little restriction to online content as possible, should be a priority for all States,” says the report, published on May 16 by Frank La Rue, a “special rapporteur” for the UN’s Human Rights Council.

. . .

The report urges states to avoid or amend any laws that “permit users to be disconnected from Internet access.”

. . .

The UN report defines Internet access to include both free information flow as well as access to infrastructure, “such as cables, modems, computers and software, to access the Internet in the first place.”

Read the report:

Report of the Special Rapporteur on the
promotion and protection of the right to freedom
of opinion and expression, Frank La Rue

And make no mistake, when the report mentions “with as little restriction to online content as possible’, that’s a direct shot at copyright holders and any governmental efforts to protect copyright or otherwise filter internet content. You see, no matter how prurient, vile, subversive, inflammatory, inaccurate, untruthful, or proprietary it is, information and intellectual property just want to be free! It’s a basic human right, damn it!

/so remember boys and girls, if you don’t have access to free internet porn, demand it, along with all the equipment and infrastructure needed to enjoy yourself, it’s your basic human right!

Obama’s Continuing War On Arizona

This is the most despicable and ridiculous salvo yet in Obama’s all out assault on Arizona. Ratting out Arizona’s attempt to enforce existing Federal immigration law as a violation of human rights, to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, an unfunny joke of a U.N. panel packed with some of the planet’s worst human rights violators, who’s insane, crazy, warped idea was this travesty? It’s just stunningly, mind boggling, staggeringly, jaw dropping bizarre and stupid. Forget about Arizona’s state sovereignty, what the hell happened to the United States’ national sovereignty? What the [expletive deleted] is wrong with the Obama administration?

Brewer demands Clinton remove Arizona from human rights report

Arizona GOP Gov. Jan Brewer is demanding that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remove an Arizona passage from the State Department’s report on human rights in America.

The State Department said in its report (PDF) that Arizona’s immigration law “has generated significant attention and debate at home and around the world” and that the federal government was taking action in court against it.

In a letter to Clinton (PDF), Brewer called the inclusion “downright offensive.”

“The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a State of the United States to ‘review’ by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional,” she writes.

So, to recap, the Obama administration submitted a report to the U.N. Human Rights Council, claiming that Arizona was committing human rights violations by enforcing U.S. immigration law.

/and, as if that isn’t bad enough, some of the members of the Human Rights Council, the entity to which the report was submitted and which will stand in judgment, are such noted world champions of human rights as China, Cuba, Egypt, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, just utterly unbelievable and unconscionable

Seriously, Just How [Expletive Deleted] Up Is This?

How is this unimaginable travesty even remotely possible? It almost has to be some kind of perverted, totally unfunny practical joke.

Iran wins seat on UN Commission on Status of Women

Iran has won a four-year seat on the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, an influential body committed to promoting gender equality.

At a meeting at UN headquarters in New York on Wednesday, Iran was elected, through a vote of acclamation, as a member on the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).

Iran’s election to the commission came Just days after Iran announced it withdrew from a high-profile bid for a seat on the UN Human Rights Council.
