    Rights: The Senate is considering a treaty which says "disability is an evolving concept" and which would infringe on U.S. sovereignty and the right to raise our children as American families see fit. Those who thought that the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) adequately guaranteed the rights of the handicapped to have access to all facets of American life were apparently wrong. The U.S. Senate is considering ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which President Obama signed in 2009 and which goes well beyond mandating wheel-chair ramps for public buildings. CRPD doesn't even bother to...

    Senator John Kerry (D-Mass), after being told to stuff his Law of the Sea Treaty (at least for this year), has announed he WILL pass the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) by July 26, 2012. Obama signed the Treaty in 2009. Now it has to make it out of Kerry's Committee, which is a given, and then must pass a two-thirds vote in the Senate. If Democrats, with the help of some Republicans, pull this off, it will be the "first time the U.S. has ratified a treaty that substantially impacts domestic law." This is...

    Next Tuesday (2-22-11) a political rally is being staged at the Huntington Beach pier. This rally is being promoted by the Regional Center of Orange County.

Their job is to distribute state money to support programs for people with developmental disabilities. Now the RCOC has become politically active. RCOC has sent e-mails to the programs they support, calling on them to bring their disabled clients to the rally next Tuesday. Since the RCOC is the funding source for these agencies...

    Scientology, The Clearwater Bar Association, and Judge Greer Judge George W. Greer presides over Florida's Sixth Judicial Circuit Court. He is known internationally for the Terri Schindler Schiavo guardianship case. Pat Anderson, former attorney for the Schindlers, characterized Judge Greer's unprecedented rulings as "The Rule of Terri's Case." The Clearwater Bar Association is delighted with Judge Greer's performance in this particular case. They presented the John U. Bird award to the Pinellas-Pasco Circuit judge on May 15, 2004. This prestigious award, which is the Clearwater bar's highest honor for a judge, was granted to Judge Greer for the way he...
