    Oh....right.....
    Shows just how far the government is willing to go sometimes to interfere. Including sending in the ATF to burn your building down.

    Oh....right.....



    Whoever heard of sending federal agents in with incendiary devices in a building full of children.

    Or shooting the weaver child through a door as his wife clutched the child...

    Or snatching Elian without going through the courts to return him to the tyranny of Cuba....




    Oh wait..

It's a good idea because in a lot of countries, children must serve their parents no matter what, and sometimes parents put their children in bad situations for their self-gain.

    The intention of this treaty is not to prevent people from parenting their children according to their values, but to protect the safety and well being of a child from obvious dangers.
    That's just total bull****! They already have those rights; stop apologizing for the UN. This isn't "other" countries, so let them ratify the damn thing. I don't care what the intentions are, I care about how it will **** us.

    Re: Boxer Seeks to Ratify U.N. Treaty That May Erode U.S. Rights

    Why don't we just pass laws that state that if a child does not want to join a crazy cult with their parents, they don't have to? Why does this need to be an international treaty?

    Maybe that's what I'm not getting. Couldn't we achieve the same goals without entering into a treaty?

    Because the UN is so much better and smarter than we are.

    We passed the first one in 1776, a little thing called the U.S. articles of confederation, later revised into the U.S. constitution, and galvanized throughout the 18 and 1900's. You were saying?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yes.... and however true that is, if it is ratified, the first time some parent forces their kid to go to church, some loon will scream that the parent is violating his rights under international law and demand that the US government, in accordance to the treaty, do something about it.
