United States
I despise the left wing liberal attempts to change America. I support FREEDOM, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, religious freedom and protecting the rights of Americans, including the unborn. Close the border, round up illegals and send them home. Welcome them back with a green card. I believe in preserving the visions of our founding fathers which did not include Socialism or Sharia Law. This IS STILL America.....at least for now.

The USA Does Not Need the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

I read about this convention today and how our new leadership in the USA is going to review this once more. I had never heard of it so I went looking for more information on it. I googled U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child and CRC and I was floored with the websites it returned with this information on it.

I agree with some of what is in this bill of rights....but as I say over and over...you have to read what it DOES NOT say as well as what it does say. There are some very interesting items for the well being of children listed in this bill of rights....however....there are many that remove the rights of the parents to make decisions for their own children. You could lose the right to have your newborn son circumcised. Homeschooling would go away....the right to refuse to allow your children to be taught that homosexuality and transgender lifestyles is an acceptable alternative lifestyle. We already know that the government is pushing for this sort of education beginning in kindergarten.

I do believe that children should be taught to treat ALL people with love and respect, but to present to children that this is an option for them is just too much in my opinion. They do not need to worry about this sort of thing in KINDERGARTEN!

I urge you to read the artlice I am linking below and then to read the Convention on the Rights of the Child. I remind you once again, to read what it DOES NOT say as much as what it does. The first article puts some of it into plain english where the actual bill of rights....just makes it all sound wonderful.

When reading the Convention on the Rights of the Child....be sure to take note of how often and where it says OVER AND OVER:

State Parties shall.....

It is not the responsibility of State Parties to parent my children. It is my responsibility. They are MY children not the children of the state.

Also know that every nation in the world has adopted this treaty except the USA and Somalia. Although the USA did sign this, it was never ratified. Somalia did not have a legally recognized government at the time so they could not move forward on this. It was signed by Madeliene Albright.

Now, it is coming up for a review by the Obama Administration. I believe it has a chance of passing and it scares me to death. It also scares me because MOST Americans do not have a clue about these kinds of things until they become law.

If every country but the United States and Somalia has ratified this treaty, then tell me why Islamic countries continue marry off their seven year old daughters, stone their daughters to death when they are RAPED, and murder them if they dishonor their parents? Can a Muslim child decide for themselves that they want to be a Christian? I think not. They would lose their lives for this. So unless there is an exemption for these countries.....we have a problem already.

Senator Barbara Boxer made the following comment:

"Now, all you have to do is look around the world and see these girls that are having acid thrown in their face."

This happens in countries where the treaty has already been ratified. Is it still happening because the USA has not ratified the treaty? I don't think so.

I am not the type of parent that spanks my child every chance I get, in fact, I do not like doing it...and do so very, very rarely.....but there have been times where it was necessary...and it did serve its purpose. There is a difference between abuse and a spanking.

To voice your opinion on this, please go to www.congress.org and you can enter your zip code to find out who your representatives are in Washington. I urge you to email them IMMEDIATELY!

United Nations' threat: No more parental rights
Expert: Pact would ban spankings, homeschooling if children object


Convention on the Rights of the Child

Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989)
The text of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child with emphasis on the articles that could prohibit circumcision of newborn males. The highlighted text would apply to prohibiting circumcision.

And the same people pushing for this in the USA are the same people who ripped Elian Gonzalez from his family here which provided safety, security and freedom. They sent him back to Cuba. Lots of freedom and individual rights there, folks.

Elian was so "free" that he has now joined Cuba's Young Communist Union.
Elian Gonzalez Joins The Communist Party
Many Cuban Exiles See The Boy's Induction As Proof That He Is Fidel Castro's Pawn


This treaty could very well eliminate all Christian schools. Young children would be free to choose their own religion. Umm....does this apply to Islam as well?

Your child could seek birth control or an abortion without your knowledge or consent. How many children know their blood type...or family medical history which could be very relevant in making decisions of this type? Oh wait, not to worry, all of our medical records will be on a national database.

Last I knew as a "parent".....my young children did not even know how to properly decide for themselves when it was time to go to bed...or stop eating candy....or when to take a bath...or the importance of vegetables.....when to do their homework...when to brush their teeth...but okay....let's let them tell me they don't like our church....and then force me to provide them with one that meets their satisfcaction. Oh...I and I guess I have to transport them there too....even if it means I miss my own church. Yes....HURRY....let's do it!

The United States does not require or need international standards for raising their children. That is what this treaty is...whether it actually says so or not.

The United States does not need the United Nations telling us how to do ANYTHING. The United Nations has no business in my family matters. None.

Caylee Marie Anthony



I have followed the story of Caylee from day one. I have two daughters and three grandchildren that I am raising. Her story caught my attention and my heart. I could not imagine any of my children being taken from me. It would be too much for me to bear.

Children take away your freedom to do as you please, no doubt. Still, their needs are my priority so the loss of freedom is moot. They are my freedom...they are my life. Sure, they drive me nuts. They bicker, fight, make messes, make too much noise, tear through the house and break stuff...and generally act like kids and drive me crazy. When I have these days, I remind myself that all these things they do....indicate they are happy, healthy children. I am so thankful to have been blessed with five happy, healthy children.

I read the news online and see the comments people post at the end of the stories. I am just amazed at how harsh people are toward George and Cindy Anthony. I cannot imagine how it would be to walk in their shoes. Honestly, I do not even want to imagine. It is just too much for me. It just angers me to no end when people say such awful things about George and Cindy. I would hope you never have to walk in their shoes and experience the loss and pain they have had to endure. They did not ask for it.

As a Mother of a 25 year old daughter....I can tell you with 100% certainty that no matter what she did, I would stand by her. That is what parents do. You do not have to approve of their actions to stand by them. Still, I can tell you that no matter what my daughter does....she is my daughter and I could never stop loving her.

Now...as a Grandmother raising her grandchildren....I can tell you that these children are like my own. They are as much my children as my own children. There is no difference. My youngest daughter is 7, my grandson 6, and my two granddaughters are ages 5 and 3. There is nothing they could do that could make me not love them. I could not imagine anything happening to any of them.

What happened to Caylee is something I find very hard to think about. Caylee did not deserve that. Children do not deserve what happened to Caylee. It is unthinkable. How could someone do that to a baby?

Caylee was the light of George and Cindy's life. I do not have to know them to know that. Can you blame them for holding on to hope that she was still alive? Can you blame them for being in denial that their very own daughter stands accused of murdering her child, their grandchild? It is beyond anything I can imagine. They lost their grandchild, and could very well face losing their daughter.

Clearly, from all media reports, Casey Anthony suffers from mental illness. Let's for a second assume that she did murder Caylee. How could any "normal or sane person murder a two year old child? Some call her a sociopath. Is that not mental illness?

I get angry when I think that Casey could have murdered her own baby. How could anyone not get angry? Still, I pray for her every night. I pray for George and Cindy. This pain will last the rest of their lives. How do you get over something like this? My heart goes out to them.

To George and Cindy, I am so, so sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you. Caylee was just a precious little angel. I am sorry for what you will have to endure with Casey in the future with her trial. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers daily. When I kiss my babies goodnight, I give them an extra kiss for Caylee. I hope you find comfort in knowing that Caylee touched the lives of millions of people....and George and Cindy....you will see her again. This is a promise from God. You WILL see her again.

While we know that Caylee is in the arms of God...there are still so many missing children. Please take a look at the video below and pray for these children and their families. Get some tissue before you watch it.

Parents take every precaution with your children. People make fun of me for being an overly protective mother. When my oldest daughter was about 10, a friend of mine joked that she would be 17 before I let her cross a street by herself. While she was not 17, she was always expected to not play outside alone. If she walked to a friends house she had to walk with someone and call me when she got there and before she came home. We taught her everything we could to protect her. We just do not live in the world I grew up in. It only takes a split second and your children can be gone forever. My younger kids do not play outside alone. I never leave them in the house alone...not even for a minute. There have been times when I went to the store for something quick...and considered leaving them alone in the car. It might be cold out...and getting four kids out of the car is a pain.....but I never do it. It is just simply not worth it. If I cannot see the children...they come with me.

If your child or children are more than you can handle. Tell someone. Nobody is going to blame you for getting help or giving them to someone who will give them a good, happy home and love them as if they were the only child on earth. A family who will give them every opportunity to grow into happy, loving and successful adults. There are so many people who desperately want children. It is your job to give them all these things, whether you do it yourself or allow someone else to do it. Maybe there is a family member that would be willing to take the children...or a friend. Someone at your local church. There are people who would do anything to have children and can't. Just do what is right for THEM. A mothers love comes in my forms.

I have my grandchildren.....and I would not have it any other way.

Obama, Prove You Are Eligible To Be President Of The United States



For the past year I have followed a lot of the news. I have even followed the lawsuits that insist Obama prove he is an American Citizen. Obama claims to have released his birth certificate, but in all fairness, that was not a full birth certificate. It is known that you could register births outside of the USA during the time he was born, and that the certificate he provided was not the type provided during that time period. There is a difference in Certification of Birth and Birth Certificate. His very own sister named two different hospitals that he was said to have been born in, his Kenyan Grandmother said he was born in Kenya and she was there for the birth.

All things considered, If he is an American citizen, I have to wonder why Obama would not just release his full birth certificate? Why is he spending so much time fighting the lawsuits? He could put this to rest once and for all, but he won't do it. You have to admit, it is a little suspicious.

I never really gave it much thought...until I recently realized how hard he is fighting this. He is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars. Sealed every record that would show his true citizenship. If he is truly an American citizen....why will he not just put the issue to rest?

Mr. Obama....as an American citizen, I ask you to just answer to one of the pending lawsuits. If you are an American citizen, you have no reason not to do this, but the way you are dodging the suits, hiding documents....I have to wonder now.

As for the certificate you released....you can buy the very same form, with the very same smudge on it on well known website. That was the real kicker for me. I looked at it, enlarged the one you provided and the one on the website...and sure enough...the very same smudge. I find that very interesting.

I also find it odd that congress verified McCain's eligibility and not yours. What's up with that?



Please.....just prove it. Put this issue to rest once and for all.

Hail Obama! He Convinced Congress To Pass His Stimulus Bill Without Even Reading It!



Well, it happened, and I am literally horrified. The Democratic leaders of America passed a bill without even reading it. There were 1100 pages....and we have no clue what is in this bill. We will not know for months or even years everything that was attached to this stimulus package.

I give Obama credit, he got it passed. He spewed threats of dire consequences....put partisanship aside....stop playing games....pass the damn thing...it cannot wait another day! It could not wait another day for congress to pass it....but it would wait three more days to be signed into law while Obama took a three day holiday getaway to Chicago. Soaked up some basketball, took his wife out to a Valentine's Day dinner....and got a haircut. HEY, I THOUGHT THIS WAS AN EMERGENCY? One Conressional leader flew directly back from his mothers wake to cast his vote and flew immediately back for her funeral. Yet you fly to Chicago for dinner, basketball and a haircut while Americans are losing their jobs.

The mere fact that our leaders did not even get time to read the bill...is what I consider an attack on my freedom. This bill needed to be read, made public....and WE THE PEOPLE should have had more opportunity to let our ELECTED officials know how we felt about it.

If this is transparency, if this is the change we can believe in, then I do not mind telling you I am scared as hell. Will this stimulus bill work? I sure hope so....but I am still mad and scared as hell at how our American system is not working for us. This is beyond socialism, it is much worse.

How can a bill be transparent if it was not even read before it was voted on?

One thing we do know is that the Health Care provision attached to this bill is just what Daschle wrote about in his book. It passed exactly the way he said it should pass. Attach it to another bill and run it through quickly. Please do not buy the book, but read it at the library. I would not waste a dime on a book he will profit on unless you buy it used or borrow it from your local library.

Then there are those who blame the GOP for the mess our country is in. If you ask me, it is definitely a bipartisan mess. As I recall we had a largely democratic congress who failed to act. Why did they fail to act? They created it. Well, I lay most of the blame on Pelosi, Franks, and Dodd. What did they do while our country was falling apart? I believe they did nothing after they created this mess so that the GOP could take the blame and they could resume control and lead us down a path our founding fathers never envisioned.

Someone better take a cold hard look at the Democratic Party and how they are leaning so far left that they are socialists. Wake up America! I truly believe the next thing the Obama Administration will do....is attempt to bring criminal charges against President George Bush and his Administration. That is how they will get America to look one way while they pass things by us the other way.

An old quote from Thomas Jefferson keeps coming to mind:

"A Democracy is where 51% of the people take away the rights of the other 49%"

Very scary.

Legislation Headed Our Way

I encourage you to view the bills below. Once you understand them....go to www.congress.org and at the top enter your zip code and find your representatives. Take a few moments to call or email them and let them know how you feel about this.

The bills do not always match the words you see on TV....so please be sure you understand them. Example...Obama promised to make sure everyone had insurance coverage. Sounds good, huh? The reality is he is trying to CONTROL your health care by nationalizing it. What does this mean? It means that your Dr. is no longer the one who decides what treatment you will receive. It gives that control to the government.

We have the BEST health care system in the world. This will ration medical care. You will only get treatments of the GOVERNMENT deems it cost effective.

Now, I am not sure how you feel....but I feel that my medical care is between myself and my Drs. Where my children are concerned, my childs Drs. and I will determine what is best for them. The GOVERNMENT has no place in my private affairs.

Below you will see the upcoming bills. Take a good look at them. Read them and SPEAK UP. We are moving at warp speed at becoming a Soclialst Nation.

NEW! H.R. 659 "Private Bill; For the relief of certain aliens who were aboard the Golden Venture" (Referred to committee - No Cosponsors) (Bills that benefit a few targeted individuals, like this one by Rep. Todd Platts (R-Pa.), are somewhat common.)

H.R. 15 creates a nationalized system of free health care. (Referred to committee - No Co-sponsors)

H.R. 414, the Camera Phone Predator Alert Act, requires cameras in cell phones to make an audible sound to alert others (such as in locker rooms) when a picture is taken. (Referred to committee - No Co-sponsors)

H.R. 346 repeals the automatic payraises Congress receives. (Referred to committee - 1 Co-sponsor)

H.R. 390 addresses "college football playoff games" (Referred to committee - 2 Co-sponsors) while H.R. 187 says let Cubans play American baseball. (Referred to committee - No Co-sponsor)

H.R. 227 states that human life begins at fertilization. (Referred to committee - 54 Co-sponsors (one new))

H.R. 254 moves voting to the weekend. (Referred to committee - 1 (new) Co-sponsor)

H.R. 113 requires anything funded by an earmark to be audited. (Referred to committee - No Co-sponsors) Perhaps things like H.R. 202, which creates a "Museum of Ideas." (Referrred to committee - No Co-sponsors)

H.R. 116 ends political "robocalls" if you are on the "Do Not Call" Registry (Referred to committee- 2 (new) Co-sponsors), while Senate bill S. 30 wants there to be caller ID honesty. (Referred to Committee - 3 Co-sponsors)

H.R. 126 would limit citizenship at birth only to those who have at least one parent who is a citizen or legal resident. (Referred to committee - No Co-sponsors) H.R. 160 would limit Social Security benefits to only legal citizens or residents. (Referred to committee - 3 Co-sponsors)

H.R. 155 would ban taxes on unemployment benefits for two years (Referred to committee - 14 Co-sponsors (11 new)), while H.R. 162 bans taxes on Social Security benefits. (Referred to committee - 2 Co-sponsors)

H.R. 87 says "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is," and invites those who like to pay taxes to voluntarily pay extra taxes. (Referred to committee - 3 Co-sponsors) Or how about just a "Fair Tax" (a national sales tax)and abolishing the IRS as called for in H.R. 25. (Referred to Committee - 43 (3 new) Co-sponsors)

H.R. 70 would make it a hate crime to display a noose with the intent to intimidate. (Referred to committee - No Co-sponsors) And H.R. 40 explores paying reparations to African-Americans. (Referred to committee - 3 Co-sponsors)

S. 213 would create an Airline Passenger Bill of Rights. (Referred to Committee - 2 Co-sponsors (1 new))

And Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is back in the swing of things. He's introduced S. 151, a bill to protect Indian arts and crafts. (Referred to committee - 1 Co-sponsor)

You need to make it your job to be aware. You owe it to yourself...your children....grandchildren....great-grandchildren.

The Fairness Doctrine

I get this email newsletter regularly. She is very informative, very enlightening and very truthful.

Silencing the Watchmen
By Jan Markell

America is changing at break-neck speed and many of the changes are not helpful! While Americans were eager for "change," it is doubtful they anticipated the loss of free speech.

So let me explain the unfair "Fairness Doctrine." My radio program, Understanding the Times, is in the target range.

The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) met last weekend in Memphis and according to President Frank Wright, experienced an ominous shroud cast by the issue of the "Fairness Doctrine." They intend to fight this issue as much as that is possible. However, they may not even be given the opportunity to fight it as they would wish.

In an article posted online by Human Events on February 6, "Christian broadcasters say they will be targeted once President Obama's appointees gain control of the Federal Communications Commission."

Warren Kelley, president of Point of View, the first Christian talk show to go on the air via satellite 37 years ago, states, "The Left Wing will immediately start filing complaints, and it will in short order shut Christian broadcasting down." He concludes, "I think it will so limit what they say that, in essence, they will cease to be Christian broadcasters."

NRB President Wright says that he expects Christian broadcasters to be hit hard because of the doctrine's requirement for so-called "balance."

Human Events has information that the Christian talk giant of Salem Communications may be the first targeted. Please note that I air on many Salem stations including Minneapolis/St. Paul, Seattle, and Portland. Salem's national talk show host Janet Parshall states, "What we want to do is tell the message of Jesus. What the 'Fairness Doctrine' would have us do is give equal time to Buddha, Allah and (Scientologist) L. Ron Hubbard." NRB President Wright backs that up by saying, "If an opposing view must be found for every matter of controversy, Christian broadcasters could find themselves in the unenviable and untenable position of seeking out other religious viewpoints - Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, or atheist - to counter what ministers of the gospel say on air."

The process would work this way: A Muslim group such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) or a homosexual rights group such as the ACLU, would file a complaint with the FCC because Understanding the Times radio failed to provide the proper contrasting view. The FCC would be empowered to force the station to present the other side of the story or lose its license. Many stations would opt to cancel the show to avoid the controversy and legal expense.

One of last Saturday's radio guests on Understanding the Times is Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. Tune in on my Radio Archives to hear Gary explain this process. It does not require any vote in Congress. It just requires the new head of the FCC to sign a paper and the "Fairness Doctrine" is law again, having been abolished by President Reagan in the early 1980s.

As it looks now, this policy will only apply to Christian and conservative talk radio, not the print media or TV. They already lean left and conservatives will not be given the same opportunity to be a balance in those arenas. Nor would they be given an opportunity to speak on liberal talk radio such as Air America.

Christian radio upsets the Left because it opposes same-sex marriage, abortion, teen pregnancy, strict teaching of evolution, and the liberal secular movement. Thus, we are targeted even before Rush Limbaugh who actually sways elections.

While President Obama was vague on this issue during the campaign, he is no longer! The White House Web site on its technology agenda page states that the president plans to "encourage diversity in the ownership of broadcast media, promote the development of new media outlets for expression of diverse viewpoints, and clarify the public interest obligations of broadcasters who occupy the nation's spectrum."

George Orwell's 1984 may have been 25 years early but the world it envisions has arrived. Welcome to the new America. God has allowed a strong delusion to take over this nation. Hopefully Christians on their knees can lessen the damage.

More uplifting on Radio Archives from last Saturday is Dr. Ron Rhodes on Heaven.

Live radio this weekend: Join Dr. J. Randall Price as we discuss the Millennium and Nonie Darwish on her new book Cruel and Usual Punishment. It sounds an alarm about Sharia Law coming to the West.

We air live out of AM980 KKMS, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Saturday, 9 to 11 AM CST. All programming is posted to our Radio Archives late Monday. For podcasting, visit this link. We air around the country on various stations and by satellite, and around the world on the Internet. You can always "listen live" at www.kkms.com or tap into their replay of the program Sunday, 12 to 2 PM CST.

We cannot reply to all e-mails, but each one is read.

Awaiting His return,

Jan Markell

Health Care, BE INFORMED!

Health care in America could be about to change dramatically. Your health care records could be on a national database giving the government full access to what was once considered a private matter between you and your physcian.

Where does it go from there?

Well, here is where it goes. There will be a "national" review board. They will review your records...and guide your doctor into cost effective treatments. This will seriously affect middle aged to older Americans. They will review your recommended treatment by cost of treatment and number of years you are expected to benefit from the treatment. If the years are not enough on average....you won't get that care. A 75 year old senior breaks her hip. Will she get a hip replacement...or a wheel chair? This is no joke, people. Most of you know I am a republican. Proud and true...but his is not a partisan issue. Bush started this...and Obama is going to make it law at warp speed with the national review board. What used to be private between you and your Dr...will no longer be private. You need to BE INFORMED! We do not even have a say in this matter. It is happening. Welcome to the new USSA. Socialized medicne. Let me say this....to make it very clear....Canada and the UK, both have socialized medicine. They rush to our country for treatment because it so so backed up there. We manage here. Even without health insurance...we manage. The unisured still are treated....with the best medical care in the world. But once this passes...where will we go for care? Mexico? This is serious...people. The government has no right to say what care you receive. End of discussion.

Inform yourself...because I assure you, the left wing liberals and the Republicans are not about to.

Institute for Health Freedom

America, wake up. Things are happening. You need to know what is going on, what is coming and how to voice your opinion.

Ruin Your Health With the Obama Stimulus Plan: Betsy McCaughey

Nancy Pelosi had stated that this is not the intention of the bill. If that is true, then change the wording to protect Americans privacy and right to choose their own treatment along with their Dr. without any government input. Easy enough, right? Then just do it...change the wording of this bill.

Tell your representatives how you feel! Just enter your zipcode and it will display your representatives and how to contact them.

Exporting America, Outsourcing of American Jobs

I will be the first to admit I am not an economist. I do, however, have a basic understanding of how the world works. It only requires a basic understanding to see that the outsourcing of American jobs is hurting our country.

Avon outsourced 600 customer service jobs over a two year period. Customer Service? I just wish that ONCE...these executives had to call a customer service line for a purpose that relates to American business, conducted in America. I know how understanding they would be to reach "Josh" in India. Let them struggle with the accents that make customer service virtually ineffective.

Below you will find a list of American companies that outsource American jobs. Now you tell me how this helps our economy!

Exporting America

I am sure this not a complete list. But...it will give you an idea of how the products and goods you purchase from American companies, give their jobs to India and other "global" communities.

I do want to point out that Chrysler is not on this list. I did some searching to confirm that Chrysler had become an American company again after its merger with a German company. It appears that I was right and if so, GO CHRYSLER!
Chrysler Goes The American Way

It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that if you are outsourcing American jobs, less Americans will be able to buy your product.

Ya think?

America Needs to Take Care of America First, Worry about the "Global" Economy Later!

JUST BUY AMERICAN!!!!

A blow to 'Buy American' provisions
President chooses to support globalists rather than U.S. workers


America needs to worry about America right now! Remember, it is your tax dollars paying for this "spending" package. Why use our tax dollars to support others?

And what is GM doing with their bailout bucks?

General Motors to Invest $1 Billion in Brazil Operations -- Money to Come from U.S. Rescue Program

I would love nothing more than to see GM go belly up for this move.

It is important to remember that America gives more money than any country in the world to global causes. If we do not protect ourselves right now, we will be in such a mess that we really will not have the money to give to other countries....unless of course they ration health care.

Also know that every nation in the world has adopted this treaty except the USA and Somalia. Although the USA did sign this, it was never ratified. Somalia did not have a legally recognized government at the time so they could not move forward on this. It was signed by Madeliene Albright.

Now, it is coming up for a review by the Obama Administration. I believe it has a chance of passing and it scares me to death. It also scares me because MOST Americans do not have a clue about these kinds of things until they become law.

I am not the type of parent that spanks my child every chance I get, in fact, I do not like doing it...and do so very, very rarely.....but there have been times where it was necessary...and it did serve its purpose. There is a difference between abuse and a spanking.

United Nations' threat: No more parental rights
Expert: Pact would ban spankings, homeschooling if children object


Convention on the Rights of the Child

Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989)
The text of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child with emphasis on the articles that could prohibit circumcision of newborn males. The highlighted text would apply to prohibiting circumcision.

And the same people pushing for this in the USA are the same people who ripped Elian Gonzalez from his family here which provided safety, security and freedom. They sent him back to Cuba. Lots of freedom and individual rights there, folks.

Elian was so "free" that he has now joined Cuba's Young Communist Union.

This treaty could very well eliminate all Christian schools. Young children would be free to choose their own religion. Umm....does this apply to Islam as well?

Your child could seek birth control or an abortion without your knowledge or consent. How many children know their blood type...or family medical history which could be very relevant in making decisions of this type? Oh wait, not to worry, all of our medical records will be on a national database.

Last I knew as a "parent".....my young children did not even know how to properly decide for themselves when it was time to go to bed...or stop eating candy....or when to take a bath...or the importance of vegetables.....when to do their homework...when to brush their teeth...but okay....let's let them tell me they don't like our church....and then force me to provide them with one that meets their satisfcaction. Oh...I and I guess I have to transport them there too....even if it means I miss my own church. Yes....HURRY....let's do it!

Big Brother INSIDE your car?

If you live in Oregon, Big Brother may not just be watching you on cameras. Soon, they will be inside your car.

I often wonder how things like this slide by without much media attention. This article was from January 4th and just today I heard about this.

It has interesting ramifications.....actually....scary. Wanna bet you won't be able to turn it off?
