    I don't think we could ever be that lucky, unfortunately.

    Ahh yes. Surrendering our sovereign power over international waters...
    And that is all you think those two pieces of crap out of the UN are about?

    Don't mistaken my critisisms of areas where I feel our country can improve as meaning that I think America sucks. There is nothing wrong in wishing America to be even better tomorrow than it is today.

    And we've literally had someone say America has done nothing wrong.

    Instead of me making your argument for you, why don't you tell me? What provision in there troubles you?

    Whoever invented the phrase "human rights" needs to be shot at dawn.

    Really, let's stop pretending that this inane phantasm of "human rights" actually exists and start living in the real world, where the rights you have are the ones you fight for, not the ones that some moral arbiter decides you're entitled to.

    If a concert of nations of some sorts agrees to a set of standard rights and enforces them within their respective territories then human rights become real.

    I'm all for improving our country, as well. What I'm not in favor of, is getting dressed up for a dog-n-pony show, at the UN.

    In other words, you have "American rights" or "Soviet rights" or "rights that certain people can agree on and enforce in their geographic territory."

    There are no "human" rights.

    Meaningless, politically correct drivel.

    The UN is a tiger without teeth.
