  •  From a Kansas Message meeting... (11+ / 0-)

    For example, he cited the ongoing controversy over Agenda 21, a United Nations program that encourages environmentally sustainable development worldwide.

    He offered as a typical case a city government putting in a walking path linking two neighborhoods and a park.

    “Well, all of a sudden you get these e-mails that say ‘The U.N. is taking over our neighborhood,’ ” Hansen said.

    “It’s a walking path. That sounds kind of nice to most people. And whether it is or isn’t part of this Agenda 21 sustainable development program is irrelevant to most people.”

    A better way to oppose the path would be to bring it home for residents and focus the argument on the city taking private property from people’s yards to build it, he said.

    Just remember, it's OK to believe in a UN conspiracy to widen the sidewalk.  Just don't talk about it during election season.
