The U.N. Wants To Shut Me Down

Well not me personally, but...

The U.N. wants to rest control of Internet domain governance from the California based Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a Non Governmental, Non Profit Corporation.

They want the Internet to be more culturally appropriate and diverse. WTF!
So we are going to have to listen to such diverse governments as China and Iran, telling us can and can not be put on the internet.

For more info go to LGF, Charles had some stories about it the last couple of weeks, and pick up a dead tree copy of the Wall Street Journal and read the top WSJ editorial (the online version of the editorial is subscribers only).

Well I wish them luck, not, and to paraphrase Charlton Heston.

If, "FROM MY COLD DEAD TYPING FINGERS!!!!!" is really the way you feel about it, then call up your senators and tell them to line up behind S.Res.273:

"Expressing the sense of the Senate that the United Nations and other international organizations shall not be allowed to exercise control over the Internet."

Tell your senators how you really feel!

Then try your representatives: H. CON. RES. 268. This resolution was introduced in the House yesterday and referred to Energy and Commerce.
