Wow, you have no understanding of the treaty AT ALL. LOL! Why am I not surprised.<quoted text>
Why do we need the united nations to over see our laws? This is a slippery slope that gives away our sovereighnty! You need to brush up on your history...we are the greatest nation on the planet that has done more to free the oppressed, feed the hungry, always there in times of need for others and we give more money to other countries than anyone. Why in the hell do we need the United Nations? We can do the the same thing without them. You are sounding like a socialist!....I'm not surprised!
The UN treaty on disabilities was an international agreement encouraging all participating nations to live up to the standard the United States has set with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
It wouldn't have impacted the US in any way since we already have the gold standard of disability legislation. Our signing on would just have given the treaty additional credibility as we are the world leader in this area.
The ignorant, fearful GOP has just succeeded in making the US look stupid and backward. ANOTHER international embarrassment at the hands of the ignorant, backwardassed conspiracy theorists.
