    Gotta love it.

    Like many Americans..I've admired Bob Dole. It's amazing how far his values are now from the Modern Republican Party.

    Really sad.

    The republican opposition has less to do with the content of the treaty and more to a distrust of treaties of this type. You may say it will have no effect on American law, but who really knows?

    Treaties like this are nothing but fluff anyway.

    They repudiated a bogus U.N. Treaty. They didn't repudiate Bob Dole. Furthermore Bob Dole was known as "the tax collector for the welfare state" for a reason, so it's no water off my back if Senate Republicans did indeed "repudiate" him.

    Wow Bob Dole is about as relevant as tits on a fucking bull.

    And in breaking news, the dinosaurs are extinct.

    They are fluff that can be used to browbeat a country via media outlets, and overall lead to nothing but litigation. There I explained it for you.

    They are propoganda exercises, nothing more, and like most UN crap, are used by the very countries violating them to castigate those countries that are actually trying to follow the spirit of the treaties. Just look at the UN human rights council for an example of this.

    Yeah, I'm sure you had wonderful things to say about him when he was running for president.
