This is a pretty interesting commentary about the United Nations that I found because no one has been sending in any commentaries lately in fear that I may post it ?
It is titled "UN should change or US should quit "
The United Nations is the tooth fairy of American politics: Few adults believe in it, but it's generally regarded as a harmless story to amuse the children. Since 9/11, however, the UN has ceased to be harmless, and the Democratic presidential candidates' enthusiasm for it has ceased to be amusing. The United Nations has emerged at best as irrelevant to the terrorist threat that most concerns us, and at worst as an obstacle to our winning the war on terrorism. It must be reformed. And if it cannot be reformed, the United States should give serious consideration to withdrawal.
The UN has become an obstacle to our national security because it purports to set legal limits on the United States' ability to defend itself. If these limits ever made sense at all, they do not make sense now.
Yet the UN's assertion of them forces presidents and policymakers into a horrible dilemma. If we obey the UN's rules, we compromise our national security. If we defy them, we expose ourselves to accusations of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
According to the UN Charter, nations are permitted to use military force only in two situations. Article 51 of the charter recognizes an "inherent" right to self-defense against attack. In all other cases where a nation feels threatened, it is supposed to go to the UN Security Council to seek authorization before it takes military action--even action that might forestall an attack.
The trouble is that the UN defines aggression in outdated ways. For the UN, "aggression" means invasion across national borders. Send Nazi shock troops into Poland--that's aggression. Give sanctuary to thousands of anti-American murderers, as the Taliban did in Afghanistan, that's not aggression.
In other words, if the United States had sent troops into Afghanistan to shut the camps down, we might well have been branded the aggressor. But if the U.S. had asked the Security Council for a mandate to destroy Al Qaeda's terrorist bases, could the French, Russians and Chinese have been expected to approve? Even after 9/11, there would still have been plenty of people ready to argue that however much they deplored what Al Qaeda had done, Afghanistan--a sovereign state and United Nations member--was not an Article 51 "aggressor."
In other words, under UN rules, the U.S. is obliged to let terrorists strike first before retaliating--and might even be prohibited from striking second. In an age when shadowy radical movements around the globe are seeking weapons that could kill hundreds of thousands of people, these rules are clearly out of date. We need new rules recognizing that harboring terrorists is just as much an act of aggression as an invasion and that those who are targeted by terrorists have an inherent right to defend themselves, preemptively if necessary.
Of course, it won't be easy to persuade the UN to adopt these changes. Many members--including some of our traditional allies--seem much more interested in constraining the United States than they are in defeating terrorism--at least terrorism that is aimed at us.
The UN member states know that the U.S. will in the end do whatever it has to do, regardless of what the UN says. But they also know that the United States pays a price for disregarding the UN. The French in particular benefit from pushing the United States to break the UN's rules: Under French President Jacques Chirac, they are trying to fashion the European Union as a counterweight to the United States, and the image of the U.S. as an outlaw power helps their cause.
In a little more than a decade, our world has been transformed, first by the fall of the Soviet Union and then the events of 9/11. Everything has changed--except for the UN. It remains an invention of a vanished era, designed to solve vanished problems. It must evolve or it will slide from irrelevance to oblivion. If the UN is not part of the anti-terror fight, the United States should not be part of the UN.
I would love to hear your views in the forums !

I was delivering to Walgreens on York street in NH, now they have small shopping carts for the people who go in there and sometimes people take them home ( I mean it is new haven for christs sake )...anyways so just recently they got all new carts for the store , so upon leaving the bundle and pulling out of the lot I noticed a sign that said " removing the carts from our property will cause these carts to lock and become useless" ? ? ...now do you think it is true or is there really some device on these carts that make them lock , and if there is isnt that kinda pricey thing for a shopping cart ?

Great idea. Here's their site. Buy a cake.

Rich's Plea for Pledges
I have gone MAD ! ....Now all you loyal readers who enjoy my column every weekday know how much I hate the winter and the cold , and if you dont read my column everyday you should be ashamed of yourself first off and secondly let me tell you that I HATE THE WINTER WITH A PASSION !!
Ok with that said Im going to do something on Febuary 21st I never thought I would ever do , I never thought these words would be coming out of my mouth but ....It's so hard to say .....Im....Im ....Umm ...Im going to do the Penguin Plunge !@#$$!@$%
That's right , Im going to submerge my fat ass in Long Island sound for the Special Olympics of Connecticut. A good friend of mine is in charge of special events for them and tricked me into it but once I found out what it was for I was hooked .
The event wil take place at the Madison Surf Club @ noon on Sat, Feb 21st, I would appreciate all your help in pledging money to me to jump my butt in the freezing cold water for this great charity so handi capable people could enjoy the thrill of victory and competitiveness .
If you would like to donate anything to me , CLICK HERE and look for my name on the right then follow instructions after that. If you wanna come down and see a drunk fat guy jump into freezing water you can do that too because im going to need all the moral support I can get.
The way I figure it is with over 10,000 readers a day visiting this site , the pledge total should be good .
Thank you in advance for your kindness
Ok enough of the shameless plugs , onto the column...

Spunky's Cold as Ice Saturday
Ok, the first thing I have to say before anything, I hate Fucking Winter! I can't believe it ,but I actually agree with Richie on something
I also want to say this, it's cold out and you need to bundle up. When the wind chill is -25 listen to the weatherman. If you must go out make sure you dress warm, let the car warm up,and make your only 2 stops the drive-up ATM and the Reef. Once inside, stay there. Riding those narly slopes or hitting the half-pipe can wait until it warms up a bit.

Rich's Tuesday Editorials
I like Bill O Reilly, I think he has alot of interesting points and makes alot of sense sometimes .....but there are some who dont agree with me and they have a whole page full of stuff that makes him look like an ass ...check it out .
Here's a good one by him .....
It is simply astounding that some people are spinning the Reagan movie controversy as a censorship issue. The usual left-wing suspects are screaming the "conservatives" forced CBS to abandon the project. The New York Times editorialized: "It should have come as no surprise that conservatives, protective of Mr. Reagan's image at all times, would launch on the fierce assaults that have become so familiar whenever the right wants to scare the media ... "
And Barbra Streisand, an increasingly amusing presence, says, "this is censorship pure and simple." One wonders if The Times and La Streisand would react the same way if Bill Clinton, on his deathbed, was mocked in a network docu-drama starring Pamela Anderson as Monica Lewinsky.
The truth is that the Reagan movie demeans a dying president and the wife who is caring for him. Ten years from now, this Reagan film could run all day long and most of the public wouldn't really care. Certainly the Kennedy family has been worked over by the TV movie czars. But Americans are not big on cruelty when it can be associated with current tragedy. Nancy Reagan, herself, called the movie cruel, and many Americans see it that way.
CBS, wisely, does not want to be in the "cruelty business," as they say in the bistros of Beverly Hills. But there are two questions in play here. First, how could a hokey, over-the-top film like this get greenlighted in the first place, and second what about Dr. Laura?
Let's take Laura Schlessinger first. You'll remember the radio advice-giver tried to launch a syndicated TV program but was picketed by gay rights activists. They objected to her biblical take on the morality of homosexuality. They threatened to boycott sponsors and implored Paramount to cancel Laura. Her show went down in flames.
Maybe I missed the New York Times editorial deploring "politically correct" censorship in this case. As for Babs, well, the silence was deafening. So could this be a case of selective outrage over perceived right-wing "censorship"? Or are we dealing with outright hypocrisy here? You make the call.
I have often stated that the media is not looking out for you because it doesn't understand you, nor does it care about you. The "folks" are seen as ratings points, dollar signs. You might think that a movie about the Reagans written by a liberal, produced by two liberals, directed by a left-winger and starring the husband of Barbra Streisand, might have raised a red flag or two. But not in the hallways of CBS Entertainment. That kind of roster is common in show business, so why would anyone question it? And even when the film was screened few at CBS understood the brewing perfect storm. They simply don't know how much of the country thinks.
But there's something else. Do you think CBS would have financed a movie about the Gores written by Rush Limbaugh? Of course not. Anyone pitching that would have been mocked and scorned. But it's OK to carve up the Reagans? More hypocrisy?
In the end, this is another victory for the folks, not for the political ideologues. CBS could not care less if a few million conservative zealots object to a program. But when the wind shifts and the fire of indignation starts taking hold in the minds of everyday Americans who value fairness, then CBS and every other media outfit must care. For if they ignore those alarms, they will surely go down in flames.
And good Pete Rose on I got ....
The 1919 Black Sox can rest easy; they're off the hook. Peter Edward Rose is now the blackest eye ever for the national pastime. And if Bud Selig lifts the lifetime ban on Pete Rose, the commish will further tarnish his tie-dyed legacy.
Quite simply, Rose should not be reinstated -- now or ever.
For 14 years, apropos considering that was his uniform number, Rose has looked into our eyes and maintained that he did not bet on baseball -- the game's cardinal sin. And for 14 years, some of us held him to his word. After all, the Hit King wouldn't hustle us, the kids who grew up sliding head-first on sandlots across America.
In Pete Rose: My Prison Without Bars, Rose says his daddy taught him two things: baseball and responsibility. Of the first, there is no doubt. The second remains to be seen. Just because Rose is coming hat-in-hand does not mean that he has learned a life lesson.
What it means is that Rose knows his window of opportunity for getting into the Hall of Fame is closing. If he is not reinstated by December 2005, his candidacy falls to the Veteran's Committee. The baseball writers are more likely to give Rose a pass; the vets don't look to be as inviting. Considering that, Rose's latest attempt to get into the good graces of the game comes across as being as irresponsible as betting on baseball.
In light of his admission of guilt, Pete Rose is not good for baseball. The lesson learned is not worth the potential scrutiny the game faces. If Selig wants to make a ruling so that Rose is eligible for the Hall of Fame, no problem; there are others with questionable character already enshrined. But Rose should not be allowed to darken another clubhouse or front office as a team's employee.
Let me know what you think about both in the forums today , Ok ?

Hoot's Sunday Stew
Hey ya!!! Happy New Year! Well I hope everybody enjoyed their new year. In talking to a lot of people it seems this year was one to just relax at home or a friends house and take it all in. I bet Dick Clark will still be hosting New Years Eve in another hundred years. Man, does that guy ever age??? Anyway now that the holiday season is behind us it is time to move forward into another year and see what it brings.
With that Christmas loot burning a hole in my pocket I bought a great cd the other day. The band is JET and the record is Get Born. If you have heard the single "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" that has been playing on the radio and is used in Apple's Ipod commercials and you like it, do yourself a favor and go get this disc. It is awesome especially for a debut album!!! I keep listening to it over and over again! JET Email Signup
