Toddy doesn't understand the whole negative rights as to the government of our Constitution.



So George Bush , Bob Dole and the seven Republican senators that voted for this are wanting to shite on the constitution?

I have some sympathy for the disabled but they have to be one of the most coddled sub groups of our society already. What the hell could be in this "treaty" that isn't already written into law somewhere else 500 times anyway?
Thats what I'd like to know. If we already have these laws, what is the point of us signing this treaty? What is our involvement in this?

John Kerry, the Treaty's biggest proponent, said it would change nothing in American Law

I threw a hand grenade in my sister's house the other day. I don't take this war on women lightly. It's her or me.

This pertains to the 40 million disabled people in this country.
40 million disabled is like 1 in 8 Americans. That sounds like some pretty liberal definition of disabled if so many people qualify. There are more disabled people than there are blacks in the United States if that 40 million number is correct. How many of the 40 million disabled Americans are part of the 40 million Americans who don't have health insurance? Maybe we need a U.N treaty to address them too if we can't trust our own government to pass laws taking care of our sitizens.

It's bad PR for anyone who votes against it! Either vote for it or be prepared to be slandered in the press!

And for those that are wondering, it's a United Nations treaty about universally accepted human rights

Call me crazy, but if it doesn't change the ink on legislation in other countries, then I don't really give a shite about it.

You mean like the PR disaster for the Dems when they blocked a bill banning sex-selective abortions?

re: Why did the GOP kill a treaty for the disabled ?
Funny that the definitions section lacks a definition of disabled. You can possibly gleam one from the purpose section, but then again, I have a bum knee, does that mean I can't participate at a normal level in society. Overly broad and overly and completely useless.
