The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - BAD NEWS

Apparently, it's no longer enough for Uncle Sam to try to force us into taking care of our children Old Sam's way. Now the U.N. is stepping in, on an international scale, and what they are planning to force on families is insane, and MUST BE STOPPED.

If you have never been politically active, then YOU are part of the problem! Stand up, and look around you! We are no longer fighting for our rights, and they are being taken away. I am NOT exaggerating, and YES I'm mad. You should be too.

Take a look at this seemingly "innocent" commercial for children, about the The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child:

'All children will go to "nice" schools.' Do you know what the UN Convention defines a "nice school" as? It's not private schools, and it's not homeschool. It's public school, but with MORE secularism than ever. If Americans allow themselves to be enslaved under The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, then homeschool will be ILLEGAL in all 50 states, regardless of state laws - they will be overrode with federal and international laws. Christian private schools will no longer be allowed to teach Christianity, without equally teaching all other religions - this means there would be no more CHRISTIAN schools. Perhaps there will be in name, but not in content, subject matter or sanctification.

Did you do something to upset your child lately? Maybe when your child wanted to eat a box of chocolates right before bedtime, and you said "no." Look out! Under The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the child could decide to take you to court and claim that you are not feeding them enough. One child took his parents to court (and won!) because he thought it was cruel of his parents to take him to church three times a week - Sunday morning and evening, and Wednesday nights.
We need an amendment that stands up for PARENTAL RIGHTS. Take a look at this:

The above video states "if we all stand together and raise our voices, Congress will respond." That's right! Let's stand together for parental rights. The U.N. should not have a say in which school our children go to, or if we homeschool them. Nor is it any of the UN's business if our child does something wrong, and is therefore grounded for it.

If The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is ratified, then each child will have a list of rights, of which they will be taught to know by heart in the public schools that they will be attending by the choice of the UN and our government. Here are a few of those "rights:"

The right to privacy - Yep. If you suspect your teenager has pot stashed in his room, you would not be allowed to go in there and find out. Your child could end up dying from a drug problem, but you couldn't interfere, or it would have violated their "right to privacy."

Freedom of expression - If your toddler throws a temper tantrum, you are not allowed to do anything. If your teen starts yelling the 'f' word out the widow of the car while you are driving to the grocery store, you are not allowed to do anything. The parent would have no right to interfere with the child's "freedom of expression."

If your child decides to take home another child and go to their room and close the door and have sex, you cannot stop them, else you'd be violating their "freedom of expression" and "freedom of privacy." Do you think I'm exaggerating? I'm not...

Here are a few excerpts from HSLDA:

"Under Article 13, any attempts to prevent their children from interacting with material parents deem unacceptable is forbidden. Children are vested with a "freedom of expression" right, which is virtually absolute. No allowance is made for parental guidance. Section 1 declares a child's right to "seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child's choice."

In Article 14, children are guaranteed "freedom of thought, conscience and religion." Children have a legal right to object to all religious training. Alternatively, children may assert their right against parental objection to participate in the occult.

Article 15 declares "the right of the child to freedom of association." Parents could be prevented from forbidding their child to associate with people deemed to be objectionable companions. Under Article 15, children could claim a "fundamental" right to join gangs, cults, and racist organizations over parental objection.

Under Article 16, the "right to privacy" is granted to children. This UN sanctioned "privacy" would seemingly establish as the child's right to obtain an abortion without parental notice, the right to purchase and use contraceptives, and the right to pornography in the home.

Article 19 mandates the creation of an intensive bureaucracy for the purpose of "identification, reporting, referral, investigation, treatment, and follow-up" of parents who, in violation of the child's rights, treat their children negligently.

To insure State and U.N. control over their development, Article 7 requires all children must be immediately registered at birth."

The above excerpts are taken from the website. Please read the article in its entirety - Oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

Next, please read this .pdf file called "THE UN CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD - The Most Dangerous Attack on Parental Rights in the History of the United States." The information contained in this .pdf document is something that everyone needs to know.

As Americans, we need to take steps to make sure America does NOT ratify this treaty. 192 nations have already ratified this treaty. The "Holy See" Roman Catholic Vatican was one of the first ones to ratify it. I make specific mention of this, because I know a lot of Catholics who will NOT support CRC (Convention on the Rights of the Child). Therefore, devout Catholics must be made aware, that if they stand with Bible believing Christians in rising up against the CRC, then they are going against the Vatican's wishes. BENEDICT XVI supports the CRC. Roman Catholics, I pray you DO stand with us on this issue. America must not ratify the CRC! Regardless of what religion you are, please stand with me to preserve parental rights.

To date, the only nations who have not ratified CRC, are Somalia and the United States. U.S. citizens, we must NOT allow this treaty to be ratified!

Please take the time to read The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child for yourself. You can read it here.

Here is a list of "Children's Rights," being taught from a UK website.

From what I've read, it looks like Canada and the UK have signed onto this treaty, but have not agreed to every stipulation yet. I know homeschool is still being allowed in Canada and the UK, but I don't know how regulated it is, etc. Obama is pushing for the full ratification of the entire Convention for the U.S, which could make homeschool in the U.S. instantly outlawed. "Primary Education" in article 28 could be defined as government (public) school education only.

Please listen to this video, in which the woman explains this stuff so much better than my feeble attempt:

Steps to Take Action - Time to make a stand!

STEP ONE: Sign the parental rights petition at the website.

STEP TWO: Contact your state Representatives and Senators. If this is something you have little to no experience in, then consider joining the 10 in 2 program with . Here is a quote from their site, summing up the program:

"We need 10-and 2 volunteers who can enlist 10 people to do the following: sign the petition for the Amendment, sign 3 postcards to their Representative and Senators, and donate $1.
Then, we need those volunteers to recruit 2 more people to do the same thing."

I'm volunteering. Are you? Please join me; it'll only take a few minutes of your time, and it could make a BIG difference.

STEP THREE: If you have a website or blog, then please put up an article about the CRC and its atrocities hidden within. The media is not going to get the word out, so it's up to us. If you want to, you can just copy this article I've written and put it on your site - just get the word out! Email and call people as well. Let's do this.

Please take time to read and respond

Barack Obama spoke at a Planned Parenthood Action Fund event, uttering the now infamous line, “Well, the first thing I’d do as president is, sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing I’d do.”

This is what we’ve been asked to do in response to this:

Mark March 31, 2009 on your calendar.

Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinkos or any party supply stores. On the front, address it to…

President Barack Obama

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW

Washington, D.C. 20500

On the back write the following message:

This envelope represents one child who died because of an abortion.

It is empty because the life that was taken is now unable to be a part of our world.

Mail the envelopes out March 31, 2009.

Forward this to every one of your friends who you think would send one too. The goal is to send 50 million red envelopes, one for every child who died in the U.S. before having a chance to live.

It may seem that those who believe abortion is wrong are in a minority. It may seem like we have no voice and it’s shameful to even bring it up. Let us show the President and the world that the voices of those of us who do not believe abortion is acceptable are not silent and must be heard.

Together in prayer and solidarity, we can change the heart of the President and save the lives of millions of children.

An empty red envelope will send a message to president Barack Obama that there is moral outrage in this country over this issue.

Thank you.

Decluttering okay...not so much

I was doing really well on tossing all kinds of stuff. Really, I was. And then baby girl decided that she wanted to be held all the time. If I put her down she is usually crying in under five minutes. I can barely do the basics.

I did manage to get the kids rooms done before her little spoiled rotten stage started. So now there are tons of bags of toys and clothes setting in my living room. Yeah. There is so much to do here in preperation for spring. It makes my mind go crazy. I will never get it all done in time.

We sold dh's box truck that happened to house all of his tools. Now we have nowhere to put the tools so we have to fix that. Along with a ton of other stuff. Good news is that we made a little money off of the box truck. We will be using that to pay off our smallest bill which is a credit card. It will also fund our emergency fund. Baby steps but still, one day, I will be debt free.

We have to grit our teeth and do our taxes soon. Our taxes is in such a mess because the CPA we had with our business was not filing extensions even though he told us he was. Of course he had no proof of it. But we are stuck with the bill. We owed around $6k in taxes but with the penalties it cost us $12k now:( I have no idea how we are going to pay it off but I guess we will some how.

I am going to get off of here and get busy since baby girl is asleep. I still have dishes to do and laundry to put away. Blessings.
