    This is something which we should watch very closely. I think I remember that treaties have to be approved by the Senate, before they can take effect as the law of the land. I need to research that.

    Found this PDF file on a study performed for Congress.

    The file goes on to mention that Presidents have used this run-around in the past to subvert the power of the Senate.

    Remember all treaties have to be ratified by Congress ! The UN's 'Small Arms Proliferation Treaty" signed by WJC, has been "hanging fire" for years over this constitutional proviso. The Obama Administration has been very adept at finding "loopholes" - and isn't the irony priceless ? - in a lot of our constitutional procedures and laws, so I anticipate some sort of "end run" emaniating from the White House to further secure the anti-rights agendae of the Progressives....... >MW

    I got a notice on another place that this is from 2009. I don't think that makes it any less dangerous.

    Come on guys, do a little research before believing the stuff that people send around...

    And, snopes isn't the only debunking site out there for you to see that this is a bunch of hooey.

    There are enough real things to be upset about, it really isn't useful to waste energy on ridiculous made-up stuff...
