Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) is delaying Senate consideration of the United Nations treaty on people with disabilities amid growing opposition from home-schooling advocates.

    Well, I think that he and many others in the Senate should put the brakes on all treaties originating from the UN. That body has not business in our Congress, or in the Administration. They for sure don't give a damn about America, other than the amount of money they can get from us, or our troops that they have put in harms way, sense before the Korean War, which is still unsettled,
