    ICANN HUMOR ALERT: "as in any efficient and good democracy-based

    >>hagen hultzsch: thank you, vint. as in any efficient and good democracy-based
    organization, the discussion about the budget has been vital. it has shown the strength of the organization. and i also believe that this type of openness and confronted discussion is a platform to ensure icann's continued evolution into a
    global organization that is both, and marilyn listen, both intellectually sound
    and financially adequately funded.
    so that's what we have to strive for.
    and now i read the text to you. you have it also on the screen, but i think it's an important step that we get this done.
    whereas, icann bylaws article xvi, section 4 provides that at least 45 days prior to the commencement of each fiscal year, the president shall prepare and submit to the board a proposed annual budget of icann for the next fiscal year, which shall be posted on the web site.
    the proposed budget shall identify anticipated revenue sources and levels, and shall, to the extent practical, identify anticipated material expense items by line item.
    the board shall adopt an annual budget and shall publish the adopted budget on the web site.
    whereas, on 17 may 2005, in accordance with the icann bylaws, icann posted its proposed budget for fiscal year 2005-2006.
    whereas, the posted the budget -- the posted proposed budget was developed through a series of consultations with icann constituencies, the budget advisory group and the icann board finance committee.
    whereas, the finance committee of the board has reviewed the proposed budget and has found that its adoption is in the best interests of icann.
    whereas, the community consultation process has also made it clear that there are categories of expenditures that remain under discussion within the icann community, particularly support for the creation of a new nonprofit organization to facilitate dnssec deployment, spending from segregated funds (with exception of funding for the technical standing panel, and initiatives on idn and registry failover); and the establishment of new regional offices.
    now the resolutions. a, the icann board adopts the proposed budget as the annual budget of icann for the fiscal year 2005-2006.
    b, the president and staff are hereby authorized to continue collaboration with
    the various constituencies to finalize the appropriate mechanisms and model for
    collecting the needed revenue levels.

    "both intellectually sound
    and financially adequately funded.
    so that's what we have to strive for."

    Priority #1: "financially adequately funded"
    Priority #2: "financially adequately funded"
    Priority #3: "financially adequately funded"

    Then you pay off people to claim to be "intellectually sound", so-called "experts".
    That is a common trick lawyers use in courts every day.

    Once "financially sound" then you can also pay to have anyone in your way removed (or distracted). That is how the Northern Virginia spooks handle things.

    Money buys ICANN and the ISOC whatever they want.
    Your .ORG taxes (and .NET) taxes at work.
