May 3, 2012

— A Kansas legislative committee has introduced a resolution aimed at the 20-year-old United Nations Agenda 21, a policy that states its purpose as seeking global cooperation to improve the environment and reduce economic disparities between countries.

The House Federal and State Affairs Committee on Monday will hold a hearing on House Resolution 6032, which condemns the "destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21."

The resolution states that Agenda 21 is a radical plan that views as destructive "the American way of life of private property ownership, single family homes, private car ownership, individual travel choices and privately owned farms." The purpose of the resolution is to expose to public policymakers the "dangerous intent" of Agenda 21.

The Republican National Committee and Kansas Republican Party Central Committee have approved similar resolutions. Opposition to Agenda 21 has also been organized by Americans for Prosperity.

Agenda 21 came out of discussions on "sustainable development" at the U.N. Conference of Environment and Development in 1992.

Well just because liberal opinion dominates in Lawrence and on this site does not make it right or correct. People in Kansas have the right to use the machinery of State government to question this agenda 21.

Next on the Kansas House agenda: Repeal of Newton's Laws and a formal statement that the Sun revolves around the earth. A proclamation that the world is flat and that man did not evolve from monkees are scheduled for debate.

Why don't these idiots work at solving Kansas problem, not whine about something they have no control over. Guess this was their latest order from Kock, go show how ignorant Kansas legislators are.

If the Kansas House does something you can bet the farm that it's 1. a waste of time and 2. idiotic.

How do these people get elected? Are they just Godly enough that people overlook their obvious intellectual deficits?

I would like to see that well endowed SNORG TEE model sans clothes as that matters more than what these bozos are trying to pull.

In other news, Al Roker is black.

They just won't let it go. This resolution is an insult and slap to the face of urban planning professionals.

Please note that Agenda 21 is NON-BINDING and has been around for 20 years without ill effects...

(with spooky music playing:) "A g e n d a T w e n t y - o n e" It's like the Ed Wood movie: Plan 9 from outer space. Complete with hubcaps spinning in the air depicting UFO's.

We are probably just around the corner from some needless anti-Sharia legislation.

You can't have Nationalism without pointing out all that scary stuff to fear from other countries.

Did they have to wear their tinfoil hats during the vote?

A similar resolution just died last week in the KS House Energy and Utilities Committee, so they are just moving it to another committee to see if they can get it through. It's a complete misrepresentation of Agenda 21 and urban planning - An embarrasment that this resolution is even being considered in our state.

Don't Kansas lawmakers have better things to do than stick their nose into global politics?
