    Wingnuts would probably repeal the Americans with Disabilities Act if they could. They all know someone who had to make an accommodation by building a ramp or installing a grab bar in a bathroom who resents the expense. They look at this progress as an infringement of their liberties. But that's only until it impacts someone in their own families......witness Dick Cheney on gay marriage, Nancy Reagan on stem cells--the minute their own self-interest comes into play, all of a sudden they're progressive about something.

    “The best interest of the child” standard may sound like it protects children, but what it does is put the government, acting under U.N. authority, in the position to determine for all children with disabilities what is best for them"

     Hard to believe Santorum (R-13th Century) could top the nonsense he spouted in the presidential campaign, but he has managed to.

    "Best interest of the child" is the legal standard at the heart of American laws impacting kids.  

    Santorum actually said that this treaty could force people to abort children with disabilities as being in their "best interests".

    It was a no brainer and it should have passed.  I understand where the slippery slope comes from, because we see it in action all the time.  But in this case the good far out weighs the problems.

    There are outrageous ADA design issues impacting projects and facilities from rediculous requirements to extraordinary costs.  I worked on a project the required ADA access to a stormwater below grade pumpstation for a potential disabled worker who once this person got access to the facility they wouldn't be capable of performing the equipment maintenance work anyway.  This is where regulations need a does of pragmatism.

    Can someone explain why it is acceptable to require the registration of disabled children?

    Re: Paranoia strikes deep.

    It isn't a birth certificate.  It is a requirement that disabled children be registered.  A general requirement such as a birth certificate or SSN, which applies to everyone, is one thing.  Requiring a group that has been discriminated against to register is quite another.

    Re: Paranoia strikes deep.

    FWIW, while I understand your argument, if it is a birth cirtificate, then (1) why doesn't it say so and (2) why does it apply only to disabled children?  I'd be interested to hear whether any other discriminated against group would be ok with being required to register.

    Of what importance is it for the United States to sign a treaty on this subject with the U.N. other than to put ourselves under their jurisdiction?

    I hear, and keep this on the down low, that some voting booths actually accomidate handicapped voters. My God! They can vote too!

    Just gotta laugh at the ideological ignoramuses like skeetard and no-balls with their tourettes-like outbursts.

    These idiots are freakin hilarious.

    They're a bunch of "dead enders" headed down the path of ignominy and embarassment, that is if they have any self-respect left.
