Last night, Annie sent me a video that I want EVERY AMERICAN to see: conservative, liberal, apolitical; religious, atheist, apathetic; black, white, pink, green; canine, feline, bovine - I don't really care - just LISTEN TO THIS!!
On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton (policy advisor to Margaret Thatcher) gave a presentation in St. Paul, MN on the subject of global warming. In this 4-minute excerpt from his speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty that is scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.
**Debate has been raised about Monckton's conclusion that the Copenhagen Treaty would cede US sovereignty. His comments are based upon The Supremacy Clause in the US Constitution (Article VI, paragraph 2). This clause establishes the Constitution, Federal Statutes, and U.S. TREATIES as the supreme law of the land. Concerns have been raised in the past that a particularly ambitious treaty may supersede the US Constitution. In the 1950s, a constitutional amendment, known as the Bricker Amendment, was proposed in response to such fears, but it failed to pass.
PLEASE watch this video! It is crucially important to international relations (logistics, as it were).
*Many, many thanks to my friend, BetteJo for emailing me the embed code for the video - which wasn't included in the earlier draft of this post, but appears in this edition!
And to the others who emailed, the tips are MOST appreciated! (Just goes to show what my Mama always says, "It ain't what you know, it's WHO you know!")
She also said, "It's great to have all kinds of friends."
