Why don't we just withdraw from the UN altogether? Might as well ditch NATO and NAFTA while we're at it. America for Americans! We shall not sacrifice our sovereignty over these quaint ideas like "cooperation" and "mutual benefits." We can do everything alone. We are exceptional.

I agree with the republicans.

The UN will use this treaty to ignore US sovereignty, and forcefully implement their will on us. Also, the treaty is useless because the UN is a toothless organization that can only write harshly worded letters to misbehaving countries.

It was the result of the fear based rhetoric that the GOP has to rely on in order to keep their base. This and greed are the main motivations for everything the GOP is currently doing.

Bizarre, isn't it? A treaty based on a law we designed decades ago, rejected because the very same extremists that give the GOP their more, shall we say, strident votes and voices, decided that America needs to be the knuckle-dragging throwback in global progress.

Man, I can't wait to see what else we decide should be rejected just because a tiny group of crazy idiots can reject it for attention.

Here's a thought -- it's not an either/or. And since cannot live in isolation we should try and work with others in furtherance of our best interests.

Especially when the point with regard to cooperation here was our own farking idea in the first place. Crafted by the Bush Administration here, and proposed to the international community.

except...that bill would not have done that. In fact, there was absolutely no enforcement mechanism in that bill at all. It was more of an affirmation of rights and values we've recognized here in the states for a long time.

Bob Dole looking to sign over our sovereignty you think? is that what you really think?

do you feel like a paranoid moron?

you and your kind will ruin the GOP permanently...and you'll blame someone else.

By this logic the US will never enter into any treaties. By definition treaties require some degree of "surrender of sovereignty".

"We all want to support the best interest of the child, every child," Lee said. "But I and many of my constituents, including those who home school their children, or send their children to private or religious schools, have justifiable doubts that a foreign U.N. body operating out of Geneva, Switzerland, should decide what is in the best interest of the child at home with his parents in Utah or in any other state in our great union."


I do a whole bunch of things with my kids and I've never stopped to think that maybe the UN would object because it isn't in the kids best interest. If you are home schooling your children and you are worried that the UN would object aren't you admitting you know home schooling isn't in the kids' best interest.
 
2012-12-07 10:03:42 AM
Since the ADA is already the law of our land, shouldn't the GOP be trying to overturn that, too? Our own government call already tell you that the way you homeschool is in not in your disabled child's best interest.

Otherwise this is just useless grandstanding. Make the GOP put their money where their slack-jawed mouths are. Overturn the ADA, and withdraw from all treaties and international agreements and organizations.
 
2012-12-07 10:03:50 AM
when you have a large chunk of the senate GOP (and their base, see beta_plus for example) looking at this benign bill, a bill supported by McCain and Dole, as some sort of trick to allow UN troops to yank their children from their homes how can anyone take them seriously?

just think about their thought process for a moment...they apparently think Bob fookin' Dole wants foreign soldiers to swoop in and remove American children from their parents. They obviously think that would be ok with senate Dems too.

they are completely removed from reality. I know that's been said a lot, but this is right in our face, you cannot deny they are batshiat crazy at this point.

I think they're at least demonstrating that they shouldn't be schooling anyone. Especially since the bill he's talking about would in no way give the UN the authority to do what he's so frightened about.

they're mentally ill.

You're missing the point. The point isn't that this has anything to do with children. The point is that saying that it does will trigger this response:

Once that response is successfully triggered, the parts of the brain responsible for rational thought are shut down. Of course, I can hardly see the point, since many of the brains they're hoping to influence don't have those parts, anyway.
 
2012-12-07 10:18:12 AM
Does anyone believe that they killed this bill because of concerns about UN interference, because I certainly don't. The leaders of the Republican party, whether that be the elected officials or the moneyed people that tell the elected officials how to vote, wanted it voted down. For whatever reasons, but I suspect it has more to do with the election results and/or the ongoing negotiations about tax rates and debt ceiling.
And they were willing to fark over that RINO Bob Dole to do it. What's he done for the party lately?
 
2012-12-07 10:18:39 AM
Republicans tend to be overcredulous fools that will believe almost any ridiculous thing. Trickle-down economics, invisible sky wizards that give a shiat about where you stick your dick, fetuses as people, the UN forcing its will on the US, businesses being ethical enough to regulate themselves, poor people are lazy, Sarah Palin's competency, death panels, the myth of global warming, Obama is a time-travelling Kenyan, our laws are based on the Ten Commandments, pot will turn you into a raving sociopath, negroes are sex-crazed monsters, progressive marginal tax rates are unfair, owning a gun will somehow allow you to fend off government oppression, it's bad for the federal government to do things but OK for states to do that same thing, homosexuals want to turn us gay, unions are evil, etc. Pretty much everything they believe is wrong. What's one more thing?
