(WorldNetDaily)   Did you know that The United Nations wants to take over the internet and control it from their secret lair in Antarctica? It must be true because Steve Elwart heard it from an invisible sprite named Jacques   (wnd.com) divider line 27

They're going to send a strongly worded letter.
"Dear Internet,
You're never going to believe our story..."

I only read the first few paragraphs but have to say the headline was more derp filled than what I read.

Well, if it comes from the WND, you know it is 100% accurate and not spun in any way. So I for wone would like to be among the first to welcome our new Internet overlords.

I'm pleasantly surprised to see that the Republican chairman of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee is someone that at least has a Bachelor of Science degree and owned radio stations. The way things have been going in the House, I was expecting him to be a devout Amish Mennonite.

That was a surprisingly non-derpy article for WND. I'm amazed and, honestly, confused.

Made me think of Coily the Spring Sprite for some reason.

No springs! and no redemption, either.

Would you prefer earlier" derp" from HuffPo?

Spin? yes. but derp? Not really. This kind of suggestion has come up before in the UN, but never even come close to being ratified.

My invisible friend Campbell Del Monte wants to keep a lid on it.

Since no one wants to read it, here's the summary.

China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and a whole bunch of other repressive/controlling nations want to restrict shiat on the internet, and they're upset that the only people who can swing that today are US corporations enabled by the US govt. So they want in for no justifiable reason.

My question in about UN taxes that have been proposed . Exactly how would they enforce them? Given that absent a ratified treaty the authority to collect a tax on US citizens is limited to Congress it seems to me they would have trouble collecting except on some international transactions.

Remember, the UN is an absolutely toothless and worthless organization that can't do anything more than write strong letters of contempt, so America has to take the lead.

Unless they're talking about doing something that affects America, in which case they are the greatest invasion threat we've ever faced.

Same UN with Saudi and Iran on their human rights comission? They would never want to do us or the internet harm.

The byline detain solves the confusion:

Steve Elwart, P.E., Ph.D., is the executive research analyst with the Koinonia Institute and a subject matter expert for the Department of Homeland Security.

This had nothing to do with WND. He wrote a cogent piece and they published it. Unusual for WND, of course.

Vinton Cerf is one of the real "Fathers of the Internet" (he basically invented the IP network protocol). A true quote from him is worth considering.
 
2012-11-08 06:11:11 PM
it actually is true.

The main thing blocking it from happening is that many of the countries who paid to create the internet refuse to give up control.
 
2012-11-08 06:44:22 PM
He read it on the internet so it must be true.

Honor System.
Yup, for sure. Users will just get a bill in their email. And pay it right off w/ UN PayPal.
That'll work. If not, a sternly worded collection notice goes on Facebook.

The amount of misspelling and poor grammar in the comments was beyond appalling.
