Illegal to Ground Your Kids?

If you think Monday's post about being convicted of murder for shooting a middle-of-the-night burglar is scary, take a look at these two stories. They are both concerning the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The first link is specifically about children's rights that, if passed, would take away all parental control. That could mean it would be illegal to ground your child, take away your kid's cell phone, or restrict internet content. And the second link is about abolishing all firearms worldwide. Now you think this doesn't apply to us here in America? Think again. International treaty overrides any U.S. law, even rights guaranteed by the Constitution such as the 2nd Amendment. When I read George Orwell's "1984" my thoughts at the time were that you could never have a totalitarian government. It would be against our Constitution. Well, it seems like we're almost there. The only fantasy about "1984" is the wrong date!

Please leave a comment and tell me your thoughts.

I've heard more about 1984 than ever these last months.

It's frightening to think of the freedoms that can be taken away from us!
