    It seems that the other day, when Congress actually had a chance to do something good, they fucked it up yet again.

    The Americans with Disabilities Act is the U.S. law on which the UN treaty was proposed. An act that was put in place by Bush Sr., and now, because of the UN treaty, was supposed to become the rule in other countries.

    Let me say this again.................the UN treaty was MODELED ON AMERICAN LAW SIGNED INTO EFFECT BY A GOP PRESIDENT.

    In no way would it have done ANYTHING to people here in the US, because like I said, the Americans With Disabilities Act is ALREADY law here in the US. The UN treaty would have just exported it to other countries, where they would model their plan on WHAT THE US ALREADY DOES!!!!!!

    So....................why does the GOP hate the disabled? Did they vote against it just because Obama was going to sign it?

    Bob Dole (a GOP presidential candidate) showed up to help the bill get passed, yet it didn't.

    By the way...............know who led the charge in getting this treaty to not be passed?

    Rick Santorum.

    How does Santorum lead the charge if he's not in government?

    He still has a lot of pull in the GOP. And, that's who the pundits and news agencies say led the charge.

    We already have have the ADA, which is more problematic than it's worth.

    Fuck the UN.

    How many time are the commies going to post this crap and never inform themselves what the treaty requires? READ IT, then tell us what is so good about it.

    This treaty would have had NO EFFECT ON WHAT WE ALREADY DO.

    Like I said, the UN treaty was modeled on what we've already done with the ADA. Basically, what that means is disabled people who have gotten used to the way we already do things here, would also see those same things in other places like Europe.

    We would have to do nothing, because we already do it.

    But..................go ahead...................support the GOP's hatred of the disabled.

    YAY! A third topic about the same thing.

    Answer me this ABikerSailor, what would signing this treaty have meant for disabled people in america? The answer, NOTHING! We already have a better law in place in the US, so I fail to see how signing a treaty from that defunct organization the UN could have possibly bettered the lives of disabled people in america.

    But maybe you can explain why disabled people in america needed this law?

    its a feel good piece of legislation, that they have no way of enforcing and only mirrors what we have here in the USA.

    because its not for us, and more so the rest of the world. The UN decided to copy our law because it seems to be the best standard around.

    But fuck those people right?
