Hey, we won one!

The House has made up for the Senate's flag desecration nonsense by actually doing something useful. I'm hearing now that Ron Paul's bill to prevent a U.N. tax from being levied on American citizens has just passed.

Nice work, guys. I also understand that Paul's resolution to withdraw from the U.N. is up next. Cynical Nation isn't getting its hopes up for this one, but one can always dream. Even if it gets rejected (which of course it will) the vote count could be very interesting. Believe it or not, it's got four cosponsors. They are

  • Rep Duncan, John J., Jr. [TN-2]
  • Rep Foxx, Virginia [NC-5]
  • Rep Johnson, Sam [TX-3]
  • Rep Miller, Jeff [FL-1]

Far out.
