tommyl66: cman: The Internet was created by us. The US did most the research, the US built most the backbones, the US set most the standards.

Do you think we would give up that kind of power? Hell no.

If UN wants control then they have to make their own, simple as that.

Coming soon, the UNternet!

UNternet Relations Council

Dear UNternet user:

As you may have read in our previous 19 Strongly Worded Letters, we are asking that you desist from posting international copyrighted materials. You were recently observed uploading songs by Judas Priest, Abba, and Michael Bolton. We are demanding that this activity cease immediately, in accordance with UNRC resolution 41,874,303. If it does not, we reserve the right to, at some future date, authorize the appropriate authorities to take action. Until then, you have your warning(s).

Signed,
UNternet Relations Council

"The U.S. does not have veto power over resolutions adopted at this U.N. conference, but it does have the right not to implement regulations that are adopted."

So it's basically a dog and pony show that can be ignored, and all we voters need to do is make certain our Congresscritters don't try and use this as another power grab.

Don't go messing with our Internet. That would be the one thing that would get we basement dwellers to come out into the sun.
