Archive for the ‘U.S. Constitution’ Category

My Camera Editorial Advisory Board comment published on July 4, 2009:

I find it enlivening the U.S. Supreme Court rules on constitutional matters. In the case of the New Haven firefighters, the Court ruled Monday the New Haven Fire Department violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by throwing out test results where no blacks qualified for a promotion. Much more could be said about this case, but the point today is U.S. citizens and the Constitution are the final say.

In another matter, that of a treaty, the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, we’re not getting a bargain with President Obama. He’s actively trying to find ways to give away our nation’s sovereignty to an 18-member group in Geneva, Switzerland. Again, much more will be written about the strengths and flaws of this treaty itself, but the bottom line is, our nation should not bend to governance by any other nation. Treaties need to be constitutional or not ratified by the U.S. Plain and simple, firefighters had the Constitution to benefit them and so should mothers and fathers wanting a say in raising their children.
