I heard about this the other day and din't write about it because my blood pressure was ALREADY up a few knotches. Here's Michelle Malkin: The People’s Republic of Berkeley signs on to U.N. treaties
Screw the UN AND Berkeley. Damned morons. San Wacko Chronicle
Berkeley became the first city in the United States, and possibly the world, to agree to international human rights treaties on Tuesday night, after the City Council approved a measure usually reserved for countries. After a brief but spirited debate, the City Council voted unanimously to allow unpaid interns to report to the United Nations on how, or whether, Berkeley complies with treaties on civil liberties, racial discrimination and torture.
The council also agreed to take the first step in raising parking revenue by voting unanimously to add 420 meters and increase the parking meter rate 25 cents an hour, to $1.50.
But the decision to comply with the U.N. treaties generated the most energetic response from council members and the public.
“This is extremely important,” said Councilman Max Anderson, who represents south Berkeley. “This is the way Berkeley should be talking. This should be an inspiration to other communities.” Councilman Kriss Worthington called the initiative a creative and important way Berkeley can support the values put forth in the U.N. treaties. “In our small and humble way, we can submit our own record,” he said. “I think this is a wonderful thing for us to do.”
What are they planning on doing? Making feat for the beds of UN workers in CA? Remember this shot from a few years back?
