Do children have a right to food?

Posted on by 1 comment 3,710 views

A recent resolution at the United Nations was passed almost unanimously:

By a vote of 180 in favour to 1 against (United States) and no abstentions, the Committee also approved a resolution on the right to food, by which the Assembly would “consider it intolerable” that more than 6 million children still died every year from hunger-related illness before their fifth birthday, and that the number of undernourished people had grown to about 923 million worldwide, at the same time that the planet could produce enough food to feed 12 billion people, or twice the world’s present population. (See Annex III.)

So the USA representative alone thought it is indeed tolerable that these children die from hunger before they are five.

Is it any wonder that the Iraqi “shoe bomber” has become a hero throughout the third world?

White house, black slaves

The White House in Washington DC was partly built by black slaves. I hope Barack Obama pays a tribute to them when he moves in there…

Good riddance, Palin

Referring to her critics Sarah Palin says: “It’s mean-spirited, it’s immature, it’s unprofessional, and those guys are jerks.” Even now, it’s frightening that this airhead could have had her well manicured fingers on the nuclear button…

Black man, White house

Posted on by 0 comment 2,138 views

During the last few years travelling to the US has become increasingly unattractive. Let us hope this now changes, and let’s hope Barack can do something about the things that have made the whole world angry with the US. I am now looking forward to resuming my frequent US trips.

I do like Michelle Obama

What a first lady she would make. She exudes confidence, beauty and class. More than the former beauty queens (Sarah Palin and Cindy McCain) running against her. Take a look at these recent videos.

Update: Videos have been removed by NBC. 🙁
