Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

I got all weepy from the editorial in our beloved paper about the failure of the United States Senate to ratify the international disabilities treaty. Once again, it was about blaming the Republicans, although thanks for pointing out that Massachusetts made a choice to oust a moderate Republican senator in favor of an extremist communist who will never cross the aisle even if the chamber is on fire and the door is on the other side.



But whats wrong with a shoving a stick up the UN’s butt? Much as there was a time when Bob Dole’s power was recognized, there was a time before the current admin. when American power was respected in the United Nations. But when the annual bash Israel vote came up recently, all of our friends sided with the forces of islamofascism, leaving the United States, Israel and a handful of pacific islands to defend freedom, religious plurality and democracy.



So, what’s the message. Screw the UN. Screw the world. And if you don’t like, well, maybe you’re probably  spending too much time cuddling with the terrorists, maybe still believing that there was such a thing as an Arab Spring, that the Egyptians want democracy, that the new Syria is going to be better than the old.  If our power and our opinion is not to be respected abroad, don’t ask us to do anything here at home.  Stuff that up your butt, UN, and smoke it.
