Comments: HR committee passes bill on reforming the U.N.

The real value of whistle Blower protection law with some meaningful enforcement is as worthy here at the UN as it is within the Government of Canada.

May it be properly established soon in both venues. 73s TG

OK, Looks like something related to that key thing over at Captains Quarters. But if everything is working A-OK, why get involved with a mess of detail?

Is this just a geek exercise to demonstrate geek superiority?

'know complexity is a tell-tale sign of poor design. Woz became famouse by getting extra routines without building more complexity but by simplifying things.

Understanding the *use* of the mish-mosh above, one could see value...maybe. 73s TG

Uh..Oh, I see, it's a UN answer to a simple question. Way to go UN. The troops are still baffeled. 73s TG

Of COURSE the UN objects to withholding financial support as a means by which member states attempt to reform a runaway organization's deep-dyed corruption. Money talks, even in a talking shop and there's no getting around it with a flood of words and documents translated into 24 languages. Like the other international elite headquartered in Brussels, the UN bureaucracy would like to decide on its own how it can be improved, although the very idea, of course,is absurd.

A hole in one, Banjo. Bureaucracies by their very nature will not reform themselves because they hold themselves to be above the requirement to actually produce something of value.

They invariably see public money as their entitlement so balk at being accountable so try to rid themselves of whistle-blowers.

Should the U.N. disband, who would notice? How would its disappearance change anything?
