Senator Barbara Boxer Attempts to "Out-Stupid" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Which Isn't Easy To Do!

Uber liberal California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer has decided the time has come for the U.S. to succumb to United Nations dictated children’s rights in this country. Apparently, for far too many years, we have gotten away with some pretty serious atrocities aimed at the most vulnerable segment of our society, our little munchkins, and Boxer thinks it’s high time we get on board with the rest of the world so some nitwits in Switzerland can dictate how we raise our kids in this country.

Sen. Barbara Boxer is urging the U.S. to ratify a United Nations measure meant to expand the rights of children, a move critics are calling a gross assault on parental rights that could rob the U.S. of sovereignty.

The California Democrat is pushing the Obama administration to review the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, a nearly 20-year-old international agreement that has been foundering on American shores since it was signed by the Clinton administration in 1995 but never ratified.

Critics say the treaty, which creates “the right of the child to freedom of thought, conscience and religion” and outlaws the “arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy,” intrudes on the family and strips parents of the power to raise their children without government interference.

Nearly every country in the world is party to it — only the U.S. and Somalia are not — but the convention has gained little support in the U.S. and never been sent to the Senate for ratification.

That could change soon.

Boxer has made clear her intent to revive the ratification process under the Obama administration, which may be amenable to the move. During a Senate confirmation hearing last month, Boxer said she considers it “a humiliation” that the U.S. is “standing with Somalia” in refusing to become party to the agreement, while 193 other nations have led the way.

The U.S. is already party to two optional pieces of the treaty regarding child soldiers and child prostitution and pornography, but has refused to sign on to the full agreement, something which has rankled members of Congress, including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“Children deserve basic human rights … and the convention protects children’s rights by setting some standards here so that the most vulnerable people of society will be protected,” Boxer said.

“To the extent that an outside body, a group of unaccountable so-called experts in Switzerland have a say over how children in America should be raised, educated and disciplined — that is an erosion of American sovereignty,” said Steven Groves, a fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Well Mr. Groves that’s putting it mildly. Can you imagine having some group of no name bozos dictating just how you are supposed to raise your kids? Or think about this, your kid sues you because they didn’t like the discipline you administered for house rule violations…and some judge agrees with them and overturns your parental punishment! No way. THAT just cannot happen!! Can it?

Oh, it can indeed!

A Canadian court has lifted a 12-year-old girl’s grounding, overturning her father’s punishment for disobeying his orders to stay off the Internet, his lawyer said Wednesday.

The girl had taken her father to Quebec Superior Court after he refused to allow her to go on a school trip for chatting on websites he tried to block, and then posting “inappropriate” pictures of herself online using a friend’s computer.

The father’s lawyer Kim Beaudoin said the disciplinary measures were for the girl’s “own protection” and is appealing the ruling.

“She’s a child,” Beaudoin told AFP. “At her age, children test their limits and it’s up to their parents to set boundaries.”

“I started an appeal of the decision today to reestablish parental authority, and to ensure that this case doesn’t set a precedent,” she said. Otherwise, said Beaudoin, “parents are going to be walking on egg shells from now on.”

Think that’s loony? How thrilling would it be if you were raising your grandkids and some court declares you are too old at 59 (him) and 46 (her) to care for them, hauls them away to foster homes then allows a gay couple to adopt them? Can’t happen? You bet it can!

British grandparents lose custody of children to homosexual couple

Two British grandparents aged 59 and 46 have been told that they are too old and unfit to care for their grandchildren, who are to be placed with an adoptive homosexual couple.

The children had been in their grandparents’ care during their mother’s struggles with heroin. After their mother failed to bring them home from a visit, social workers became involved and the police were called in.

The children, a five-year-old boy called “Josh” and his four-year-old sister “Chloe,” were placed in foster care, an arrangement the grandparents believed to be temporary.

The local adoption and foster council went to court four times to have the children permanently removed and adopted, but each time the court ruled in favor of the grandparents.

According to The People, the council threatened to hire expensive lawyers, causing the grandparents to abandon their legal fight because of the potential legal fees and because of their fear the court hearings would prevent the grandchildren from having a settled home.

The unnamed 59-year-old grandfather, speaking in an interview with The People, said the day the social workers came to take away his and his 46-year-old wife’s grandchildren was “the worst day of my life.”

“Chloe was still little and although we were saying goodbye and reassuring her we’d see her soon, I don’t think she fully understood we wouldn’t be putting her to bed that night and we wouldn’t be there when she woke up. But Josh knew and he was howling. He was holding on to me and saying ‘Please, Granddad, don’t send me away. I want to stay with you and Grandma’.”

Two weeks ago they learned the children were to be adopted by a homosexual couple.

“”If we had known how it would turn out, that social workers would choose a home without a mother for them and we’d have to like it or not see them again, we’d never have given up the fight,” their grandmother said.

“The thing is they were so happy here. They knew they were loved and they were safe.

“They had all this countryside to play in. They loved going on the farm with their granddad. They’d see deer and badgers and all sorts out there.”

The children are now with a foster mother while they are gradually introduced to the homosexual couple.

Now a little bit of critical thinking applied to this nonsense tells me there is much more to this insidious idea of kids challenging their parents over household discipline.

In fact this would seem to be an ideal governmental avenue for brainwashed little kids to rat their parents out over such things as firearm ownership, familial political leanings, dietary habits, home energy usage, maybe some under the table cash earnings dad brings home and other such things that the controlling liberals love to stick their noses in. Parents, mortified their pint sized proteges will run to the authorities if they dared to ever discipline them, will be forced to simply let the inmates run the asylum.

Think that might be a little over the top? Well I don’t know where you live but around here TV ads are constantly running where some guy get his ass chewed by a three foot tall gap toothed little girl about the type of light bulbs he should be buying. Isn’t that great, we have kids that can’t spell, can’t perform simple mathematical percentages and are stone clueless about the U.S. Constitution but they can tell us all about recycling pop bottles, taking 30 second ice cold showers with reclaimed dishwater, flushing our toilets once a week and what Obama’s kids wore to school every day for the last two and a half weeks.

I don’t know about you but I’m glad my kids are all grown up now.
