Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., is urging a hurry-up timetable for adoption of a United Nations treaty she says provides for “basic human rights” for children but opponents argue would destroy parental rights to raise their children as they choose.
“Children deserve basic human rights … and the convention protects children’s rights by setting some standards here so that the most vulnerable people of society will be protected,” Boxer said, according to Fox News.
Boxer wants quick action on the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, a proposal on which for 20 years Congress has refused to act because of concerns and questions.
The instrument was signed by President Clinton in 1995, but opposition and critics’ concerns that it would override centuries of practice, policy and law regarding children have left it unadopted.
A WorldNetDaily.com article. This is more of the Social Justice Engineering being thrown at everything right now. Any Communist / Socialist inspired program in the works is being moved forward as fast as possible and hopefully without public scrutiny. This is just more of what I was writing about yesterday. And it just goes on and on, and so very quickly.
President Barack Obama and congressmen are hiding things inside of the legislation by the fact that no time has been given to study and debate any proposals before he signs into law. The newest spending proposal (third one in 10 days) has a Pork Barrel spending proposal from Senator Obama. He is having his name taken out, but not before the media reported on it being there and with the now President’s name on it. This is wrong especially when just on Tuesday to a Joint Session of Congress and in a Prime Time televised speech the President stated that there is no pork in his spending proposals.
If we are having to borrow and print worthless money to float our debt, why are we are funding abortions outside of America as one of his first Executive Orders. We are funding a rebuilding of of Gaza in the wake of the Israeli offensive that was sparked by Hamas rocket fire. Mr President is planning to give the Palestinians $900 million toward the rebuilding . We have a ton of attached spending pork and money given to other countries and this with money that does not belong to us. If Congress does not slow this pace down, with some debate and some doing their job ( they all swore to defend and protect the Constitution) they are fleecing America. Karma does exist and it will come back to bite America as a whole, but I pity the people who foist this kind of corruption on us, as they will suffer worst.
