How can I encourage my employer to adopt the “Programmer's Bill of Rights”?

Jeff Atwood posted back in 2006 an article entitled "Programmer's Bill of Rights".

To summarize:

  1. Every programmer shall have two monitors

  2. Every programmer shall have a fast PC

  3. Every programmer shall have their choice of mouse and keyboard

  4. Every programmer shall have a comfortable chair

  5. Every programmer shall have a fast internet connection

  6. Every programmer shall have quiet working conditions

The only requirement met by my workplace is a fast internet connection.

I would like to try and convince my employer to adopt the rest of these practices, assuming it's not too unreasonable for a workplace to provide their programmers with these items.

How could one encourage an employer to adopt these practices? What points could be made to encourage my employer to increase the expenses they are willing to spend on their programmers?
