Norm Coleman urges Senate to counter efforts of UN's Working Group on Internet Governance (WGIG) to
take control over the World Wide Web from ICANN.
Like a vampire that can't be killed by conventional means, the U.N. Working Group on Internet
Governance (WGIG) is renewing its efforts to suck the lifeblood out of ICANN to eable the U.N. to
seize worldwide regulatory control of the World Wide Web. Sen.
Norm Coleman is urging the Senate to give ICANN a silver bullet for protection against
this vampire. Otherwise, the regulation of the World Wide Web will enjoy the benefits of
the same kind of "wise" regulation as did the "Oil for Food"
In 2005 we reprise our comments in 2003 on plans to allow U.N. rules on how the Earth's World Wide Web may be weaved:
Dec. 5, 2003-- The growth of the Internet Web
helps freedom advance 'stead of ebb, so freedom demands that government hands do little in weaving the Web.
Reports say that soon the UN intends to propose to begin control of the Net to aid and abet the Third World's desires to get in.
Because the UN is the worstest in helping the lastest be firstest, to let it control the Internet's folds,
it soon would become the Interred Net. So ICANNº¹ should tell Kofi Annanº²
that if the UN won't abandon its trigger-lock plank, then ICANN will yank permission to lock its
and Dec. 8, 2003:
Reports say that ICANN received 'til 2005 a reprieve from slow strangulation by miscreant nations who'd rule how the Web we should weave.
Proponents of UN control on weaving the Internet's folds resemble exhorters to license "reporters" by standards their governments mold.
It's not since our first-most Amendment against free-expression infringement that freedom received such help to proceed
as that from the Wide-Web's invention. Since using the Web may elicit what tyrants perceive as illicit,
we can't simply by-stand but must echo ICANN: When something ain't broken, don't "fix" it.
And now the U.N.'s W-GIGº³
continues its effort to dig a hole to inter what ICANN conferred on Earthlings: From freedom a swig.
The W-GIG plan is to get from ICANN control of the Net with plans to "improve" (like oil sold for "food")
the world-wide control of the Net. But Coleman, et al, have proclaimed control of the Net must
remain with ICANN so swigs from freedom aren't rigged with rulings by tyrants ordained. Said Coleman, "I'm certain ICANN
bite off W-GIG, a bite planned to give the U.N. control that has been for freedom preserved by ICANN."
In reading this text you will find it's written in rhythm and rhyme, however to trick your mind, it
is "writ" in paragraph form 'stead of lines.
º¹·ICANN (pronounced eye-can) is the acronym for The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers
(ICANN). It's the non-profit corporation that was formed to assume responsibility for the IP address space allocation, protocol parameter assignment, domain name system management, and root server system management functions previously performed under U.S. Government contract by IANA and other entities. Here's the site:
º²·Reports some time ago quoted Kofi Annan as expressing a preference for the English pronunciation of his last name to rhyme with "cannon" rather than "anon."

for information about how you can support the effort to "Take Back" the 9-11 Memorial from
the politically-correct crowd now planning to overshadow the Memorial with a "museum"
chronicling the sins of America as though they were relevant to the current war against the
medieval, totalitarian, perverted version of Islam being peddled by al Qaeda et al.
