    Here is a snippet...
    [font=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]A U.N. treaty conferring rights to children could make homeschooling illegal in the U.S. even though the Senate has not ratified it, a homeschooling association warns.

    I talked to a German technician in the doctor's office last year, and she told me homeschooling is not allowed in Germany.
    I wonder which other countries outlaw it?

    Well, what pissed me off the most was that SOME OTHER entity could delagate USA laws!!! Something is WRONG with this! Don't you agree?

    I do not remember VOTING for anyone in the UN!!

    Ths UN is supposed to be a place for nations to come to the table together and TALK.

    The President of the UN was meant to be the CHAIRMAN of the committee, NOT the PRESIDENT of the whole world!

    Doesn't this scare anyone?

    It seems way too far out to happen here.

    No, Becky, it's NOT too far out. The UN has gone into other countries, after they have ratified their "rules", and basically told them that the country's laws didn't follow theirs and needed to be changed. I'm thinking it happened in Holland, specifically, but am not sure. We have some kind of law, maybe in the constitution? that says a ratified treaty will carry THE SAME WEIGHT as the Constitution. It IS very serious. The UN feels they know what is best for the entire world, and everyone needs to bow to them.

    Ah, but Becky, then it will be too late to do anything about it! How do you think people would have reacted to the idea of a Constitutional ammendment defining marriage? CRAZY!!! EVERYONE knows marriage is between one man and one woman!!! Inconceivable to think otherwise!!! Yet look where we are now.....

    Would this have anything to do with the one world stuff that is suppose to happen at the end of time. If it is then it is really showing that time isn't much longer.

    (This entire message was written in the tone of "General Conversation, and debte". We cannot hear tone in ones typing, therefore, I felt it nessasary to convey that these are thought sin my head, not yells or screams or fights to anyone, here....)

    I know how you feel, but please bare with me on this one.....

    Point #1
    That's exactly what I said to the story that the Government could actually come in and TAKE your property, simply to HAND it to a Commercial Enterprise for the sole purpose of increasing TAXES, that would benifit the same local community that TOOK the property.

    It is called EMMINANT DOMAIN, and was originally created to serve the Government when nessasary such as to build highways and schools.

    Supream Court Judge Sandra Day O'connor QUIT because of the NEW version of Emminant Domain.

    See, in this new verion, LOCAL governments are called upon by these "Enterprises" and told, "Psst! Hey! If you GIVE me that land, I will build my mall, and it will bring in Millions more in local TAX revenue...!!!""

    When I first read new reports on this... I said, "This is America! You can't take someones property just so someone else can make money off of it! That is stupid! I will believe it when I see it!"

    I was stunned, when THAT happened.
    I had to check other sources to see if it was not a joke.

    Point #2
    When the new bankruptcy laws were going into effect, I read a report that said that the republicans, Bush, in particular, refuse to accept three amendments to the new bankruptcy laws, I was stunned....

    Those three amendments would be... for Identity Theft Victims..... Serious Medical Calamity Victims.... and ACTIVE MILITARY SERVICE MEN AND THEIR WIVES. For those folks.. NO SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR BANKRUPTCY... Treat them like you would anyone who skips out on credit debt!!!!

    I thought.. "No way! Bush wouldn't do that!"

    He did.
    Right after he cashed the $60 million in "Donations" to the "Special Interest Group Lobbyists" on capital hill.

    And now the same government that sends GI's bills for broken equiptment, when they asre injured, also will not make special considerations, when those same people have to file for bankruptcy?

    The same government that ALLOWS companies to PROFIT off selling your personal property.. YOU IDENTITY.. will NOT allow you any special provisions in the bankruptcy laws...?

    And now, some Non-U.S. Government officials think they are going to indirectly change our laws???

    It COULD happen, because we keep getting sold out.

    I will believe someone has our collective BACK, when I see it.

    Sorry for rambling, but I am actually scared, and as much as I may sound like some militant freak, I am not, this is simply information from the daily news, and newspaper. I just feel America is dead, if not dying and I feel hopeless to stop it.

    But it CAN happen.

    I voted for Bush.
    I regret it, now.
    But I am still a conservative.
    I just think he is a wolf in sheeps clothing.
    I do not own a gun.
    But I cannot imagine someone not having the right to own a gun.
    I think Militant people (Like millitias) are nutz-o.
    But, I think after the emminant domain thing.. people are a bit freaked out about what CAN happen.

    I just wish I knew WHAT I could do, you know?

    Yup I agree with Jennifer, Whan I was a nurses Aide years ago, my boss called a meeting to tell us that the newly proposed medicare laws would cut all our pay in half and restrict who could recieve medical help. I don't remember all the details now but it was serious. We drew up petitions and needed some specific number of signatures to get the law put on hold. We all went in the community on our own time to get the signatures. I explained it to people in detail.. most were people who'd actually be affected by the new laws.. and 95% of the ones I talked to simply said "Our Government wouldn't do that to us!" and refused to sign the petitions. 6 months later the laws went into effect. MOst of the small Home Health agencies closed down, thousands of Aides lost their jobs or got a 50% pay cut, thousands of Seniors lost their medical coverage for things they needed to survive and the large corrupt home health corperations that the laws were ment to stop were the only ones who had enough money to stay open.

    We were willing to fight it but too many people just said "Nah, That won't happen!" How would it have hurt them to say... "I don't believe it'll pass with or without my signature but I'll sign that I don't want it to happen anyhow"? Apathy forced a large number of people into corrupt nursing homes and a large number of honest workers out of jobs in my area! It was a strong lesson learned, to watch it happen just because people were in denial.

    Don't just sit back and hope bad things don't happen, we have to get out and do what little we can do. One of the very things that made America's freedoms so great was that people had a say in things. We can vote and petition and fight back when laws are put up for consideration. We can make a diffrence in our country. But what good is such power is most people just sit back in denial and swear that the law makers are going to act in our best interests on their own?

    I'm no political activist.. but when something is shoved under my nose and I see that it's gonna be bad if it's true.. I say research it a bit and take a stand... It might just save your life or someone else's some day.

    My one letter to my government representitives may not be much and by itself it'll do flat out nothing to change anything. But if poeple nip apathy in the bud and they get thousands of letters... they take notice!

    In this situation, we have on our side that the US government didn't ratify it AND things decided by judges in this country CAN be overturned. I think (and hope) that it won't come down to affecting any of us personally... BUT I'm not going to blindly say it won't, the end times are getting closer even though we can't know exactly when things will happen. Alot of things will happen that will be out of our control. we may nbot be able to stop it but we can pray to God and petition to the government and at the least make a fuss, ;) who knows it might even help.

    Then I would encourage you to do what you can NOW!!! Anyone who believes in "traditional" marriage needs to call their senators NOW. It goes before the Senate today. The majority of senators don't feel it's "necessary". Never mind that every state that passed a state ammendment has passed it overwhelmingly. As it stands, the courts can push whatever they want, regardless of the law. They can force states with an amendment to accept the legality of gay couples "married" in other states, etc.

    Jenn, I voted for Bush, too. And I voted for him knowing full well that he IS a politician, or he would never have gotten to a place where he'd be able to run for president. No, I don't agree with everything he said or did, but at the same time, he's better than Kerry. Given the same choice again, I'd vote for Bush again.

    An interesting thing is happening here in Ohio. The Dems have been pushing "election reform". In other words, Ohio is primarily a Rep state, and the Dems feel that it would be "fairer" to re-draw the districting lines to their advantage. They put a plan out that got shot down about two years ago. So now, the Reps have suggested redrawing the line. Of course, the Dems can't have that, and shot down the Rep proposal. So the Reps put back the identical proposal the Dems had put down two years ago, and the Dems voted THAT down!!! Seems that two years ago, they were all for "reform", but now they aren't. (Because we have an idiot Rep governor, and they think things are changing for the Dems. But if they lose this fall, they'll be pushing for redistricting again!)

    All this talk about Bush makes me miss President Clinton again.

    You might get some nuts that want to marry their own gender, and there might be places that are okay with it but how many are not okay with it?

    As for eminent domain, I must really do live in Utopia.
    A farm near here was needed - I forget why. It had been in this lady's family since the Pilgrims landed. She was paid for the farm and treated respectfully during the whole thing, because officials knew what they were taking from her.

    A little further from here an entire block of homes were needed to build a store. Not only were those people paid, they were paid what they asked for when the first offer was too low for them. Here again, these people weren't trampled on. An entire neighborhood was being dismantled and officials realized that.

    We have our share of issues here, but there's always something in place to make things right or at least fight to make it right.

    Just out of curiousity, what would have happened if she chose NOT to sell her farm? That's the question. They try to be reasonable, but if a person choses not to, they force them to sell it. And the government has NO RIGHT to take (even if they pay for it!) land to put up a store!!! If a store wants to go in, the people who work for the store need to be negotiating with the current owners, NOT the government!!!

    NO ONE in this country owns land. It all belongs to the government. We pay rent for it in form of taxes. Don't pay your taxes, and see how long you stay on your land!!! And the government reserves the right to kick us off whenever they want, though they will compensate us for it to so me extent.

    Oh, she didn't want to sell. There was a picture of her in the paper, crying. She knew the sale was needed and like I said, they paid her. They were respectful of her feelings in this situation.

    So, like I said, she had no choice in the matter. The government took the house that had been in her family's possession longer than the government existed against her will. Wow! I'm just dying to move into your Eminent Domain Utopia!

    Becky>>
    I thought more about this last night and I have to conceede that I do not know of any United Nations "Actions" that have resulted in U.S.A. Law changes. Therefore I must conceede that My fears are a little bigger than they may need to be. But my fears are bassed on the last ten years of, "I can't believe this is allowed to happen", type things, in regards to government.

    So, again, I think my attitude is, "I'll believe that someone has our backs, when I see it.".

    NOT because I join the far left librals, who believe the government is out to get us.
    No.
    I actually believe the government is a million left hands that don't know what the other millions of right hands are doing. And those who seek to take advantage of this anonymity, will always line up for the job. But they make the local officials who do start into politics to make changes in their local communities look bad. It is a circle jerk.

    So, I completely understand your possition. And you may have no idea how much I hope you are laughing your butt off at us crazy hyped up women! hahaha! I just know that things can get out of hand very easily, that's all. And I thought it was important to bring this to everyones attention.

    Much love for ya, hon!
