    That's an impressive, depressing litany -- further than I had taken it in my own thinking. Thanks.

    This current crop of "conservatives" are like Oscar Wilde's cynic: a person who "knows the price of everything and the value of nothing."  They are fixated on what these treaties cost us, and seem to have no idea what they gain us.

    Come to think of it, that's their attitude about taxes, too. And health insurance. And privacy rights and endangered species and schoolchildren, for that matter.

    I hesitate to call them cynics, though. No cynic I know would be so breathtakingly reckless.
