fat, ugly bastards

not content with eating all the pies, the US have voted against a UN measure calling for people to have the right to food. yup, you heard right, the fattest nation on the planet now feel the need to stop anyone else putting on any weight.

"Draft resolution XX on the right to food, approved on 24 November by a recorded vote of 180 in favour to 1 against ( United States), with no abstentions, would have the Assembly reaffirm that hunger constitutes an outrage and a violation of human dignity, requiring the adoption of urgent measures at the national, regional and international level, for its elimination. (Press Releases GA/SHC/3940 and GA/SHC/3941)" original here.

would you adam & eve it? let them eat cake or what? and this is merely a resolution for the adoption of 'urgent measures' whatever they are. no teeth, no nothing. just a 'wouldn't it be nice' kinda thing.

to be fair many of their own citizens were as outraged as the rest of us at such a move. but fuck 'em. if the germans don't get off that easy, neither do you!

thanx to DCNY (a septic 'imself, no less) for the heads up.
