  1. What happens to the “poorly educated” (I have little more than a high school diploma) who make a boatload of money?

  2. Sounds like a dorm bull session.
    Or what you say when you’re tryin’ to get into the pants of that cute coed with the peace symbol.
    Or when your job doesn’t depend on producing real-life results.

  3. Why are we even still associated with the UN?
    I mean, geez, they still haven’t finished that mess they made in Korea. Or did they sorta just bug out from that responsibility?

  4. Don’t get that card laminated. All rules in Calvinball are subject to change at any time.

  5. If we could relocate the UN to northern Niger or Chad, they could play the zero-sum game of acquiring grains of sand, which would keep them out of our hair for decades.
    There may be a problem of getting around, but once you’re there in the southern Sahara, plenty of parking in the dunes.

    Yannow, we’re drowned in studies and polls. But still, after reading the bilge Claire cited, I’d like some university to do a serious poll on whether or not the UN is the most useless organization in dollars per capita in the world.

  6. Dick — make it “whether or not the UN is the most useless destructive organization in dollars per capita in the world” and I’ll toss in a sawbuck.

  7. Why do people still pay any attention to anything that comes out of the U.N. and doesn’t go right into a dumpster? I mean, aside from, maybe, comic relief? One of the first political stands I can remember taking in my adult life was to side with those wanting to get the U.N. out of the U.S. That’s been nearly 50 years now. I’m disappointed at the lack of results.

  8. tl;dr:

    Make the world more like Zimbabwe.

  9. “Those who have been blessed the most, who have disproportionately extracted, by whatever skill, more and more from the national wealth, they’re going to have to share more of that,”

    Let me translate that for you Jerry: “Those who have, through ingenuity or hard work, provided their fellow citizens with goods and/or services that they desired, and so have been rewarded by those citizens with wealth, have to be punished by the government for being so helpful to society”.

    Anyone who doesn’t understand that in a capitalist system, you only get ahead legally by providing your fellow citizens with something they WANT, is a complete moron. And also, possibly, Jerry Brown. The idea that such people “have” to be punished is something only a moron would believe.

  10. What authoritarians find so horrifying is that personal freedom and free markets don’t depend on authorities as much as they depend on private cooperation.
    (Crony capitalism is not a free-market sect.)

    Authoritarian systems find it easier to work with homogeneous populations.
    Some tend towards the lowest-common-denominator approach,
    while others tend towards the Procrustean approach.
    Freedom and private commerce are too messy and can’t be controlled by them.

    In any case, all authoritarian regimes evolve towards an organized-crime model anyway.
    The more petty the crook, the more likely he will be a thief. Same for governments; and the UN is a club for governments, the pettier the better.

  11. I’d say the UN is a club for murderous dictator governments.
    Taiwan cannot be a member and Israel cannot be on the Security Council, because murderous commies and murderous theocrats want it that way.

    That’s all you really need to know about the UN.

    I use to want the UN to be moved to Haiti, but what the heck, leave it in that commie paradise in NY. They deserve each other.

  12. I look at the bilge put out by the UN and realize these people would be perfectly happy to turn the world into North Korea as long as they remain in charge.

  13. Why do the plans for the new UN re-education camp look a lot like Auschwitz-Birkenau

    Comment by Gwillie's phone — July 19, 2017 @ 10:37 pm

  14. they’re going to have to share more of that

    My experience is that a statement like that means that they TAKE the money from YOU and you get NOTHING in return.

    It’s not so much “sharing” as it is……robbery.

  15. ^It’s purely protection you’re paying. You’re trying to keep from being stood against a wall and shot.
