Greens, Libs and Enviro-Wackos disappointed with Johannesburg.

Which is, of course, a good thing. Meeting in late August to decide how to deal with real and imagined problems ranging from water (water appears to be a problem, hm) to the mythical global warming, delegates endured rant after rant from kooky weirdoes proposing all kinds of socialist, totalitarians schemes for solving the world's problem. At the top of the list was world hunger. Choosing Johannesburg was designed to offer a real life visual for the suffering of the starving third word countries to the UN delegates who reportedly snarfed down 5,000 oysters, a half ton of lobster and other shellfish, two tons of steak and chicken breasts, and buckets of caviar and foie gras, and gallons of champagne and cognac while they bemoaned the suffering of the starving populace around them.

True to form, one conclusion these brain deprived Liberals came to was that the third world (mostly Black) was actually happier, poor and starving. "In southern Ethiopia, the poorest half of the poorest nation on earth, the streets and fields crackle with laughter. In homes constructed from packing cases and palm leaves, people engage more freely, smile more often, express more affection than we do." wrote George Monbiot, a columnist for the upscale Liberal British newspaper the Guardian.

Ironicly these starving natives didn't particularly like having their heads scratched and called "boy". Leon Louw of the Free Market Foundation of South Africa was quoted as saying, "The North [Northern hemisphere] can rehabilitate their [natural places] by bombing New Orleans and bombing Rotterdam and restoring the Rhine and the Delta [rivers] and getting rid of Belgium and Denmark and France and turning them back into swamps. And if the first world doesn't like that, it should be told by the Third World to go to hell," You tell 'em Leon. Wonder if he knows that Washington D.C. is also built on the location of a drained swamp?
