Don’t give up. Hell is a little colder these days because Specter voted against the DREAM act. A total surprise there, since Snarlin’ Arlen is a major amnesty supporter.

Rudy does not want to admit hes for it and Romney wont stand for anything until he grows a spine..

You're right on both accounts.

The sad thing is I can understand Clinton - he sold us out to the Chicoms for money and power. Bush ? We don’t even get cheap oil from Mexico - Bush sold us out for nothing except vacuous sentiment.

“Does anyone know the bill number?”

This is not a bill, it is a treaty. That is the reason we only need 34 votes to defeat this monster.

After Trents vote yesterday, so was I.

We only need 34 votes to kill this. Call your senators today.

Only 34, we can do it. We can make them do it if we press them hard enough.

I have something on McPain, I'll hunt for it. And get back to you.

Wussup with the prez? Seems like he's on the wrong side of more and more issues.

His true beliefs are coming through now. He can't run again so he doesn't need to fear we voters.

Surely, if we had been under the LOTS treaty in the 1960’s and 70’s, we would’ve never been able to (lawfully) construct our SOSUS arrays on the sea floor. The awareness that these arrays gave to our naval superiority was huge in defeating the USSR, and winning the Cold War.

Isn’t it though. When I read the article my stomach jumped. I’ve been waiting for their decision to be handed down on it’s ratification. It was supposed to come a couple of weeks after the last hearing.

Illegal immigrant for the economy are more important, I suppose, than the safety and sovereignty of the US.

That sure is the way it appears to me.

I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that even if they find they’re deliberately set they’ll hide any evidence of it being anything other than white men.

I'm with you on that.

In the 'old' days it was called, 'the freedom of the sea.'

unClos I began in 1956.
unCLOS II in 1960.
unCLOS III in 1973 to where we are today.

It's simply called, united nation Convention on Law of Sea.

Reid and Pelosi have been trying to crame their agenda through this week with the most odious of bills including LOST, AMNESTY Light, Son of SCHIP, and Rangell's multi-trillion dollar tax increase.

This treaty has been a long time in the making, we just didn't hear about it.

If LOST is ratified, we will have to seek permission from the un if we want to hover off enemy territory, listening. We don't do that now. If we suspect a ship is carrying terrorist or wmd's, again we'll have to seek permission to board that ship. In certain areas, or ships or subs will have to strike their colors. I guess that leasves off our keeping ahead of enemy country's.

* UNCLOS can be used to ban U.S. military ships in international waters unless they are on U.N.-approved missions.
* UNCLOS actually protects the transit of weapons of mass destruction by states such as China, North Korea and Iran.
* UNCLOS requires that arms interdiction activities, such as the U.S. Proliferation Security Initiative, be approved by the U.N.

If this is ratified, we're so totally screwed as a country.

There's an article on FR about Jim McCreary(my representative) on Rangell's multi-trillion dollar tax increase. He's on The House Ways and Means Committee.

"Is there any further news on the California fires having been deliberately set?"

Word from the men on the ground is that they all are arson, but the politicos and the media are quashing that info actively.

Bush sees LOST as a done deal.

Read his EO 13366 he signed in Dec. '04, right after his reelection.

Yes, I thought for sure that it was going to be passed. What a welcome surprise. Thank you Mitch McConnell. I can’t figure this guy out. Seems he does something I don’t like and then he does something great. Guess I can’t have it all so I’ll take what I can get and be happy.

"These left wing initiatives never really die do they? They just keep getting coming up over and over again until they pass. LOST should have died in the 80’s."

Yep! - Just like fluoridated water; vote for destruction, or vote again.

So did I. I've been a nervous wreck over it. I'm still not ready to breath a sigh of relief. This thing will be facing us until 2009.

Sometimes they actually do what we elected them for - to do our bidding. Sometimes they don't. :(

I hope some Democrats Senators will be voting against this POS. Lou Dobbs has been busy infecting Democrats with national sovereignty ideas. This just showed up in the thumping of the Dream Act and should show up when Law of the Sea gets kicked to the curb

Three cheers for American Sovereignty
F*** the UN’s Law of the Sea which will provide the UN with a revenue stream
