    You ever read the UN Declaration on Human Rights? It a toothless exercise in expressing ALL RIGHTS -- while sinisterly reserving ALL OTHER POWERS to the State. And a lot of the rights expressed -- conflict or NEGLECT some that Americans have preserved and protected. Go read it -- and then ask the question..

    I've read it and am still clueless to why be so upset. Perfectly reasonable.

    Go post it in Law and Justice or General Global and have folks EXPLAIN the issues to you then.. Not gonna do it here.

    But I WILL tease you into reading much closer with this ONE criticism of relying on ANY ONE standard of HumRights.

    http://www.boortz.com/weblogs/nealz-nuze/2005/oct/07/2005-10-07/

    The document says that it represents "a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations." Does the UN Declaration of Human Rights protect free speech? Freedom of the press? Well ... in a word, yes it does. Article 19 says that everyone has a right to freedom of opinion and expression. So far so good. The declaration also says that everyone has a right to rest and leisure and a right to a standard of living. Interesting. It also says that all mothers and children are entitled to "special care and assistance."

    Problematic, to say the least. But, let's cut to the chase. Let's go to Article 29 Paragraph 3. "These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations."

    Do you need to read that again? Please do. It's critical. This one clause negates every single right recognized in this so-called "Universal Declaration of Human Rights." You have no freedom of speech. You have no freedom of expression. You have no right to own property. You have no right to your precious standard of living ... you have nothing ... not one thing if your exercise of those rights interfere with the goals of the United Nations.

    Animals do have rights. For one, EVERY creature had the right of self defense. Walk up and poke a bear and you'll see him enforcing that right. It's a part of Natural Law.
