"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Ethereal never said anything about U.N resolutions, which are different than acquiescing to laws implemented by a foreign body and expected to be adhered to in the United States. Two completely different things. More along the lines of what Ethereal and myself are talking about is the U.N attempting to put laws into place that effect everyday American life. Not ones that outline the previous No-Fly Zones in Iraq, or North Korea's nuclear program like the 'resolutions' you speak of.
For example, the U.N passes a law stating due to increased concerns about global warming, it is now illegal to pass gas. This law is put into place by the United Nations but all nations must adhere to it. That is the sovereignty transition that we speak of. That is of great concern given the current administrations focus on achieving a greater degree of transnationalism.

"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country." -Jefferson
The UN is an international organization established immediately after World War II. It replaced the League of Nations. In 1945, when the UN was founded, there were 51 members; 191 nations are now members of the organization.
What was the League of Nations?
A former international organization, established by the peace treaties that ended World War I. Like its successor, the United Nations, its purpose was the promotion of international peace and security.
The original membership of the League included the victorious Allies of World War I (with the exception of the United States, whose Senate refused to ratify the Treaty of Versailles) and most of the neutral nations. Among later admissions to membership were Bulgaria (1920), Austria (1920), Hungary (1922), Germany (1926), Mexico (1931), Turkey (1932), and the USSR (1934). Through the efforts of Sir Eric Drummond, the first secretary-general of the League, a truly international secretariat was created. Geneva, Switzerland, was chosen as the League headquarters.

Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!
The reality here is that the facts are only contained in your tortured mind based on an irrational hatred for George Bush that just doesn't wash with anyone interested in an honest coherent debate.
Please provide some credible links to support such absurd efforts to lie about what actually occurred for purely partisan political purposes.
