gack.

So we're evidently *finally* going to pay *some* of our back dues to the UN. Now that we actually think we need their help, we'll quit with the whining about how we lost our seat on the Human Rights Commission, and pretend we're being generous.

I didn't even realize this then, but we passed a law in May to withold dues until we got that commission seat back. A seat that we had been duly voted out of, by the same principles of democracy of which the US is supposed to be champion. Passed a law! Like that gave us a legitimate cause to whine like a toddler that's getting spanked for breaking his toys!

Gah. Our government makes me sick. Mob mentality at its worst. Our country has the collective brains of a two-year-old.
