Don't Let Your Rights be Taken Away!

Dear Friend of Parental Rights,

Monday in a Harlem middle school, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice told a group of 120 students that administration officials are actively discussing “when and how it might be possible to join” (that is, ratify) the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). As before, she also communicated what a disgrace it is that the U.S. would stand with only Somalia against such a widely-accepted treaty.

This is the first direct public statement by the Obama administration that it will seek ratification of the UN CRC.

In my 30 years of political involvement, I have learned to recognize this as what is called a “trial balloon.” Like in World War I trench warfare, our opponents have “sent up a balloon” to see if it will draw fire. If things remain quiet, they will proceed with their plans to push for ratification of the CRC in the U.S. Senate.

To discourage them from doing so, we need to make sure that our voices are heard with unmistakable clarity. We must let the Obama administration know that we oppose this anti-family, anti-American treaty.

Here’s what we need you all to do:

1. Call the White House comments line at 202-456-1111. Tell them you heard the administration wants to ratify the CRC, and you strongly oppose this giving away of U.S. sovereignty to the UN. Also keep in mind that this treaty gives the government jurisdiction to override any decision made by any parent if the government thinks that a better decision can be made—even if there is no proof of any harm.

2. Call Ambassador Susan Rice’s office at the United Nations. Tell her that you want her to represent the United States to the world rather than trying to get the United States to go along with international law initiated by the UN. Her office number is 212-415-4000.

3. Contact your Senators and urge them to oppose ratification of this treaty. (Find your Senators’ contact information by typing your zip code into the box here.) Ask them also to defeat it once and for all by cosponsoring SJRes 16 – the Parental Rights Amendment.

It is very important that we speak up right now. Please call before you close this email!

Thursday (not) In the Kitchen

Today was my Husband's and my Anniversary
and we spent our day visiting Huntington, West Virginia.
Therefor, I wasn't at home to cook.
I wanted to take him out to his favorite place!
Red Lobster!
He ordered the Ultimate Feast!

And I ordered the Cajun Chicken Linguine Alfredo.

It was really late on our way home
so we stopped by a Dairy Queen
and picked up a Cheeseburger and a Treat.

Wednesday In the Kitchen

Today for Lunch we had left over Chicken Tacos.

And for dinner we had BBQ Chicken Bacon Cheese Fries.
First I peeled and cut up the potatoes and got them going in the oven.
Boiled the Chicken, Fried the Bacon, Shredded the Chicken, Crumbled the Bacon.
When the fires where ready I poured half a bottle of BBQ sauce on them,
then added the Chicken and poured on the rest.
Sprinkled on one cup of Mozzarella Cheese and then the Bacon.
Put it back in the oven to heat.

Sunday In the Kitchen

This is the Chicken Stock that I made from the carcass and drippings.

I decided I'd use the left overs, instead of all the chicken I saved back.

I used about 2-3 oz. of the chicken I had saved back.

Here are the Veggies!

Here is the Soup cooking away!

After I got the soup going, I fixed a Hearty Breakfast.
Here are the eggs frying.

Here are homemade biscuits fresh out of the oven.

Here are more getting ready to go in.

Here is our completed Breakfast.
Homemade Biscuits, Over Medium Eggs, Turkey Sausage, and Bacon.

Here I am two hours before Dinner adding the Rice to the Soup.

Ready to Eat!
A bowl of Chicken and Rice Soup and a Homemade Biscuit!

And for dessert we had Peach Cobbler, that was made the day before.

You can get the recipe for this tasty soup at Keeping The Home.
