Kofi Annan's financial form/records are to be kept in deep cover, as in secret. Of course they are.
The UN, known for its minimalist thinking and acting has once again demonstrated why it is the model for the world and for world leaders everywhere when it comes to openness, fair-mindedness, and integrity. We had the oil-for-food scandal; now we have the hide-the-financial-records memo.
How can we, who are by and large supporting this travesty, have nothing but contempt for it when the highest official there won't even follow the procedure he set forth for those of lesser stature?
With no respect for the position and less for Mr. Annan, I find him the epitomy of the arrogance and high-mindness so flagrantly demonstrated among those who would tell us how to live and how to be. He has the arrogance of the very far-left in America; the far-left in academe who from such lofty towers look upon the peasants and swoon over the sorry state they perceive us to be in, forgetting for a nanosecond that it is they who have taught us our history, our political process. Of course, the masses are unlearned due to the very hand of these elite. Their desire is to keep us illiterate and ignorant. In that they have not failed. American students today are among the least educated in all of the industrialized nations. Shame on you pompous elite. What the future portends may well be too good for you. We'll see what you have wrought.
I love the autumn. The turning of the leaves, the freshness in the air. I will not wish it away but I will not miss the removal of Mr. Annan as Secretary General of the disfunctional and corrupt United Nations. The Secretary General is gone! God save the Secretary General! Would that it could be the lady from the Pacific!
