Senator Boxer Pushes to Ratify UN Treaty.

This post is for all you lucky folks in California who have to deal with Senator Barbara Boxer’s thinking. I guess she doesn't have enough important things to do so she dug up a nearly 20-year old international agreement that she wants ratified.

The United Nations Treaty (Chapter IV: Human Rights) is meant to expand the rights of children. This is a dangerous treaty. It does nothing to secure human rights: as it is almost impossible to control criminals and the criminally insane. It does more to put restrictions on parental rights. Don't get me wrong. I am all for protecting human rights. I am a mother and grandmother. But I am also one who believes that the rights of the parent(s) to raise his or her child are first and foremost.

This treaty, if ratified by the United States, will usurp our own Constitution. It would supercede U.S. sovereignty! This is a ploy for those who want to push International Law when interpreting our Constitution, such as we hear from Justice Anthony Kennedy. And, as far as protecting girls who Sen. Boxer feels we should do, via her quote, "...look around the world and see these girls that are having acid thrown in their faces," well, the UN agreement will not affect Islamic Sharia law. The article referenced above mentions that acid attacks on girls continue in Afghanistan, which is already party to the convention. Once again, bad people do not honor laws or treaties. I wish she would get hot for something that would protect our borders. At the very least, she should stop supporting San Francisco's policy of being a "sanctuary city".

Note: What Barbara Boxer Stands For

According to comments made by Attorney General Holder on February 25, the new administration would like to make "just a few gun-related changes". One would be to re-institute the ban on the sale of assault weapons. Holder claims it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico. He also states it would have a positive effect on Mexico. Who is he kidding? Gun smugglers are not going to abide by the laws. The Mexican drug cartels will get their guns anyway they see fit. They have the money and/or clout to purchase or take what they want. Blaming the United States for being a major cause of the crime along the border, because we have availability of sophisticated guns, is crazy. I would like to see blame placed where it belongs; at the feet of our US Government for not controlling our borders and the Mexican Government for not controlling theirs.

It appears our government wants American citizens to end up like Mexico, where they say it's virtually impossible to buy a firearm in Mexico as a private citizen. I do not want to see that happen in American.

People wake up! The Declaration of Independence was written to provide for a way for citizens to protect themselves from a "runaway" government. The second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence wasn't written to sound pretty! It states, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." The Second Amendment in the Constitution protects our right as citizens to bear arms (A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed).

The ATF, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, is trying to hang the blame for the flow of guns across the border on private citizens, gun stores and gun shows. The government wants to penalize the same people who abide by the rules that the criminals continuously break. The suggested changes will not stop the problems occurring at the border. Could it be that it is designed to suppress the American people? I believe the rights of we Americans are being infringed upon.

I am a retired grandmother who lost her husband of 42 years in 2010, to cancer. I relocated from Ventura, CA to a community near Salt Lake City, Utah to be with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. I am a believer in Jesus our Lord and in the true Sabbath as our worship day. I am learning more and more about what our role is here on Earth as well as what it will be when Yahshua returns. I love crochet, watercolors, and writing. My newest passion is writing poetry. I would love to hear from others who enjoy these crafts; come visit and share your interests.



JULY 4 - Time For Tea

The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.

All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
