    Unlike many other countries, the US already airs its dirty laundry to the world. It is one of the most open societies on the planet. It is the countries that DON'T have such openness are the ones that need the HRC to pry them open ... not the US and most EU countries...

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    The UN has ignored Rwanda and Dafur but now want to examine the human rights of Americans, a people with a free media and the ability to leave. In fact a country which millions of people would want to enter.

    By offering these dictatorships a record of the American Human Rights, whatever it may contain, it gives them a legitimacy they otherwise don't deserve.

    When we allow these third world despots to pass judgment on any of the democracies then we have indeed entered that much discussed slippery slope.

    The sooner BHO is out of office, and a defender of democracy is elected, the less dangerous the world will become.

    This is exactly what I was suggesting.

    I've quoted it for expressing a gem of intelligent truth.

    In which case, the United Nations is obviously not the venue for such an exposition.

    Well exactly.

    If anyone would want to investigate the history of human rights in the United States, quite apart from the many thousands of books published on the subject already, then it should be those nations who have a history of positive human rights and how each democracy might improve on them.

    But having the corrupt UN do the investigating is straight ahead propaganda, designed to encourage the anti American Left, as well as to justify further attacks by terrorists.

    You'll notice that the UN no has no interest in investigating human rights abuses in Muslim countries and, in fact, have made it illegal to criticize them at all.

    This issues demonstrates just how far the Leftist anti American will go, and they care not who their fellow travelers might be.

    So, agreeing with something already stated means I have no thoughts of my own?

    Could it not be that, just maybe, we're of a like mind, and we've reached that consensus through different thought processes, because it's a fairly logical theory to support?
