Jay sent this link from this past week's "Huckabee" show. It's a discussion of the "UN Convention on the Rights of the Child" with Michael Farris, founder of the HSLDA. While not directly related to the theme of "tax & spend insanity", it is directly related to the theme of ever-increasing big-government intrusion into our lives. And as a homeschooling parent, it's a topic which has special significance for me.
Some of you may remember this treaty from the Clinton years, when it was defeated. Well, it's back, proving that in Washington, bad ideas never die. President Obama has called the nation's failure to ratify it "embarrassing". I would call it something to be thankful for, and it's distressing to see this thing rear its ugly head again.
