    From various sources NOT my original content:

    FWIW, YMMV. I thought many Monkeys would be interested in this. As I said, I did not write this. It is from various sources, most notably an email digest I get from Human Events Advocacy.

    If they are that (*^%^&& stupid, let them bring it on. It will be a mistake they will vividly remember to their dying day!
    They can have them all, when I die or run out of ammo!

    Hmmm, so what this means is I'll need to BUY really large calibers?
    Since I can't have small arms ones, I'll just get some BIG ONES!
    I'm thinking 75-105mm recoilless!

    Repeatedly. Make sure it's a sharp #2 pencil, though. You want your vote to COUNT.

    Maybe the "monkey's" could make a group buy and get some 155mm self propelled howitzers? They can't complain that we have "small arms" then!

    Not to derail the thread, but I can't seem to parse this statement: "Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees."

    The US lead the formation of the UN in the first place (to replace the League of Nations after WWII). The US government holds de facto control of the UN partly through being its biggest source of funding (22% of the operating budget and 27% of its peacekeeping budget as of 2010 - U.S. Funding of the United Nations Reaches All-Time High | The Heritage Foundation) and partly through its veto power on the Security Council, not to mention highly placed officers in the Economic and Social Councils. We have not hesitated to veto or simply ignore rulings by the UN that we don't like.

    Any moves to 'take over' by the UN will be done with the full support of the US government.

    I wonder is a 20mm recoiless anti-tank weapon considered a "small arm"?

    No derailing detected. The UN is here at the express forbearance of the sheeple of the US, manipulated by the MSM and the PTB. They disguise themselves as "peace loving unificationists". The US people need to revoke their lease, kick them off US soil and tell them to go play elsewhere. Enough Globalist BS, I, as an American, am done with their lies and manipulations.

    I see the UN as just another mechanism for further consolidating power by the traditional colonial powers (plus the US) at the expense of the third world (especially by economic means, primarily through the World Bank and IMF) and at the expense of ALL nations' national sovereignty and right to self-determination. Its humanitarian efforts, though laudable, are merely a facade.

    BTW Falcon, that Heinlein quote is one of my all-time favorites...though I felt the book was a bit tedious overall.

    For what ever reason it was created it has been changed into a Global Police force dictating Policies formed behind closed doors by the likes of the Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg group and the C.F.R.. Just the fact that seek to impose Global opinion on ANYONE is enough for me to dislike it as an organization. Just the existence of the U.N. is a symbol of a borderless world where countries have no sovereignty. The United States Government has become a Puppet show for Global elite power brokers. People(Shills) like Bill and Hillary Clinton, The Bush Family, Newt Gingrich, John McCain and now guys like Huckabee are bent on erasing national sovereignty in favor of one global control. Ill never bow to any global law or treaty that upsurps the United States Constitution. Kingfish

    The president can make all the treaties he wants, but congress still has to pass them.

    At least that's how it is supposed to work.

    Congress is supposed to declare wars as well. They just handed that power to the executive, who doesn't even bother declaring anymore.

    Actually it is the Senate that must ratify any treaty. Kingfish

    I hate to nitpick, but
    The United States Congress is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the United States, consisting of the Senate and the House of Representatives.
    So, when when one says, "Congress" they could be referring to either the House of Representatives or the Senate or Both..... just saying......

    "Not only that, but many Senators get "queasy" about killing treaties for fear of "embarrassing" the President -- especially with "international prestige" at stake."

    This SHOULD not be a problem, the way the Illegal Resident has repeatedly embarrassed the leadership of this nation, and all of us American citizens nationwide. Perhaps 'embarrassing' him would send the correct message that he simply has ignored for so long. When he does NOT do the Will Of The People, then We The People have the right and duty to hand him his pink slip. AND do the same with any Senator or Representative that opposes Americans too. THEY ae supposed to work for US, not the other way round!

    We, The People ARE the leadership of this republic. The "President" and every last politician, policeman, and secretary are SERVANTS to the People.

    It is this type of thinking which needs to be re-invigorated. We cannot forget OUR role, OUR honor, and OUR sacred duty.

    I am sure this was a simple mistake. Take care. (y)

    President Obama's 2012 budget vote failed 0-97: Not one single solitary Senator voted for it...

    What mistake? He is wandering all over the planet embarrassing us the people (as well as the servants.)

    It was inferred by the content of the post being replied to by SeaWolf that the Senate, Congress et al. were the "Leaders" of this country. I concur with Brokor, We The People are the leadership.
