Many businesses are relocating to Texas to elude California's stricter environmental law and taxes. Too bad Texas will be keep getting more illegals too. It'll end up in just as much economic trouble as California has, plus increased pollution.

HUH? Obama's Benghazi Murders are hardly qualify as "foreign policy" experience to most decent Americans.
Who did Obama murder?

Was it Ty Woods, a highly paid soldier of fortune who was operating in a CIA secret war in Libya?

Was it Glen Doherty who was earning big bucks working as hired gun based in Tripoli and being paid by who the fk knows?

Was it Sean Smith a supposed State Dept data manager who's office was in Tripoli but just happened to be in Benghazi?

Or Chris Stephens, the ambassador who was in Benghazi for unknown reasons__does anyone find it strange that no one has explained why Stephens was in Benghazi without his security detail???

Fk the details eh? Let's just beat the sht out of Susan Rice!

GOP may hurt rights for the disabled

President-unelect Rick Santorum made his triumphant return to the Capitol on Monday afternoon and took up a brave new cause: He is opposing disabled people.

Specifically, Santorum, joined by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, declared his wish that the Senate reject the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities -- a human rights treaty negotiated during George W. Bush's administration and ratified by 126 nations, including China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, Syria and Saudi Arabia.

Right wing site ignoring the reality. Try this.
"I have long advocated on behalf of equal access and non-discrimination for all Americans, including our veterans and today’s disabled soldiers returning home from serving their nation in war," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in a statement.
"I support U.S. ratification of the disability treaty, as it seeks to advance these same fundamental values of equality and human dignity around the world."
The CRPD takes cues from the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act, which enacted vast protections for the disabled against discrimination in employment, public accommodations and other areas.
The convention currently has 112 ratifications and 153 signatories, according to the UN.
Senators taking part in Friday's announcement were: McCain, Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.)

You really should stay away from those fringe sites. Especially one that the birthers like to use.
As someone named Semby said in the comments following this article, "I don't think the US should support any UN treaty. We live by our own laws; not the UN. The UN is a disgraceful, corrupt organization, what is going on?"

What's going on, indeed.

Someone named JFKdemocrat commented, "We certainly don't need treaties that trump our constitution. No legislator of any party should be talking about ceding any US sovereignty, period."

I agree. Give the UN an inch and they will take a mile. Let the UN get its toe in the door and they will swing it wide open.

You get the picture.

Please provide a link to the United Nations attempt to usurp the rights of US parents over their disabled children.

President Bush supporting global communist domination

President George Bush, addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations, Feb. 1, 1992:

It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance.

The son now carries forward the work of the father.

So let's see....so it's only nutjob FOXbots, or WND idiots, who even worry about that which is of no consequence to most people. But I know how you 'smart' folks just love to stick you noses into that that really doesn't even effect you.

So how did that work out in the election? More FOX failure?

The treaty basically gets other countries to pass laws much like the ones we already have in place.

You right whiners are having yet another tissy fit about nothing.

I'm convinced your problem is plain and simple ignorance. Either that or you believe what any leftwing propaganda source tells you.
A petition was signed by almost 9,000 parents of children with disabilities against the UN's CRPD.
The petition states, "As the parent or family member of a person with disabilities, or as one who lives with a disability, I join with Joni and Friends in urging the United States Senate to reject ratification of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty threatens the traditional right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children, especially if those children live with disabilities, and it limits the ability of the U.S. Congress to make laws for Americans."
Michael Farris, founder and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, highlights the concerns of parents across the country.
"We all want to show our love and care for people with disabilities," Farris said. "But all of the rights that parents have under traditional American law, especially the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, will be undermined by this treaty. The United States is a leader in rights for persons with disabilities because we have stuck to the policy of Americans making law for Americans, and that principle should not be undermined."

As always, RealDave, knowledge is power.
Carol, you calling someone ignorant is a joke.

The idea that signing this treaty some how reduces the protections of the disabled here in the US is beyond ridiculous.
