LOST is far more than it seems, The UN would control ALL WATERWAYS that empty into the sea, forget getting a fishing license from the State and buy one from The UN.

This is a treaty and requires 67 votes.

The Constitution specifies "two thirds of Senators present concur," not two thirds of the Senate. That means a treaty can be ratified legally with 34 votes. You either know better and are lying, or you are a clueless idiot, or you haven't read the Constitution (which fits). Take your pick.

Treaties have been ratified by voice vote with no record of a quorum, no committee vote, and no recorded vote.
