    I don’t understand where this respect for the UN comes from. It’s a non-democratic body composed mostly of non-democratic governments. And if Americans already have these rights, why does the US need to sign this treaty?

    Jon Stewart is a comedian. And anyone taking anything he says as anything other than a joke is halucinatory. I am disabled. I believe the wording in the treaty needs to be revised as Sen Demint and others have advocated. Why not? What is the problem with that? It firmly closes doors that Kerry’s version would leave open. My vote, as an individual that this treaty would directly impact, is change it! We should be using this as an opportunity to pull international laws UP to our level if behalf of diabled persons world wide. Not to lower ourselves to their standards. Less than that is unacceptable.
