The Breaking of Nations

This is truly one of the most frightening articles I've ever read.

It's about how the European Union (EU) is now forcing all nations under them to drop or alter their laws, British citizens are being legally kidnapped by foreign governments to stand trial for alleged crimes, and the EU has forcibly installed "...a European justice system, replacing centuries of Anglo-Saxon common law with the Code Napoleon -- i.e., guilty until proven innocent."

This may not be an easy read, but if you read anything at all today, you really need to see this article.

And Americans aren't far behind. You will also read about how NAFTA and WTO are superseding our American government.

For those of you who aren't familiar with American Thinker, it is a very trusted and reliable source - and hardly The National Enquirer.

Sometimes, Saur, I smile at some of the "chicken little- the sky is falling" passion of occasional posts, but this is one that is significant. Along with the specific dangers noted herein there have been major threats to freedom of the press. My major opposition to "cap and trade" is not the conservative mantra "cap and tax" or the fact that the Carbon Emissions that are the base of this policy, but the fact that the bill gives away American Sovereignty in regard to major parts of trade. You are right, there is some scary stuff going on.

I left out the final part of the sentence about the Carbon Emissions which should have said that they are largely either fiction as well as based on phony science. but the bill. . . . . . . . .etc.

3Score&10 What, moi? Chicken Little? ;o)

Yes, I do tend to be very passionate about certain issues. I recently ran a business negotiation for the owner of a company I represent. A former contractor had stolen her websites and it was taking a long time to get them back, so I ended up in a mediation in an attempt to skirt a legal process.

Last minute we were told that the former contractor was terrified of me and demanded that she only meet with the owner. The owner and I were very fervent about not conceding to this, which really miffed the mediator (whose key word was "compromise").

Because we insisted on my being there, our opponent brought her lover AND her attorney and still lost.

Sometimes it pays to be passionate.
