“I urge you to oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and will threaten parental care of children with disabilities. Our nation already has laws to protect Americans with disabilities.

The Cossacks' horses could run faster, which gave the fugitives no choice but to hand over their weapons and flags if they wanted to live. The word "retreat" was blasphemous, and even the command to halt was reputedly given only on the parade ground.
