I firmly believe President Obama should be impeached over his decision to bomb Libya. I cannot support him and cannot in good faith post positives about a man I feel should be Impeached.

Please let me know if I should not post here again.

If you are going to TS me please let me post one last goodbye. It won't be distruptive. I promice.

When the poor are asked to pay more, it's "shared sacrifice", but when the rich are asked to pay more it's "class warfare".

Most of us can only imagine what it is like to have a son on the front lines in Afghanistan. These are NYT 's articles written by a friend of mine that was published in their Blog "War, Notes From The Front". I thought I might share. It blew me away. Grab a box of Kleenex but know this does have a happy ending at least for this family .- Kevin


NYT "At War" Notes From the front

Christmas in Harm’s Way

Mr. Cassone, whose son Richard is serving as a sergeant in Afghanistan, sent this essay to the Complaint Box on the City Room blog this weekend. The City Room editors thought it was more of a poignant story than a complaint and thought At War readers might appreciate it. We did, too.

Combatting Worry

Mr. Cassone, whose son Richard is serving as a sergeant in Afghanistan, contributed a post in December appealing for a little compassion for parents of active-duty service members during the holidays. Below, he writes about a recent check-in with his son and the worry that lingers after each call.

Below is from a birther who refuses to believe President Obama is a Natural Born Citizen of The USA. I am not a Legal Scholar but his logic smells funny. What would you say to him?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



For your information, the term "natural born citizen" appears in our Constitution, in Article 1, Section 2, with these words, "No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States."

Before the Constitution, the closest reference we have to Natural Born Citizen is from the legal treatise "The Law of Nations" written by Emerich de Vattel in 1758. That Treatise was relied upon by our Founding Fathers in drafting the Constitution and is even referenced by them in it. Here is the link:

http://www.lonang.com/exlibris/vattel /

In Book 1, Chapter 19, § 212 captioned "Of the citizens and natives" it states

"The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens." While Barry’s mother was a citizen, his father was not! He, therefore, is admittedly not a "natural born citizen" and, thus, not qualified to hold the office of President. He is a usurper whether or not he was born in Kenya or Hawaii.

It will definitely create jobs.

No ya say? How ya ask?

Building prison after prison , to house all the jobless people and working poor that are barely being able to keep a roof over their heads and feed their families, that can't afford insurance at any price. It is an idiotic idea to force people to buy health insurance and make it a crime if you don't It. is utterly unconstitutional and not even covered by the 10th Amendment, it's beyond belief!

At any rate I don't think this abortion of a bill is going to fly in the Senate.....I sure as hell wouldn't vote yea on the bill as it is...not if I expected to be reelected.

a friend of mine who is either very gullible or one of the 20%ers sent this to me this morning

Here was his question:

Just got this from an attorney friend of mine. Have you heard or read anything about it being some sort of forgery?

Here was what was sent him:

Finally happened. Atty Taitz obtained a certified copy of Obama's Kenyan
birth cert as well as an affidavit from the American who obtained it.
THIS IS NO JOKE AND VERY IMPORTANT. This is the real thing and not the
certification from 1063 from the divorce.

There is a discovery hearing in Keyes v Obama on Sept 8. Demand that all
senators and representatives attend it in Cal.

I cannot believe this crap is still going on.

New contract for mercenaries
Independent journalist Jeremy Scahill, author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army, reveals that Blackwater is continuing to receive government contracts, despite disturbing new allegations about its founder.

August 11, 2009


Blackwater's heavily armed security forces
JUST DAYS before two former Blackwater employees alleged in sworn statements filed in federal court that the company's owner, Erik Prince, "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe," the Obama administration extended a contract with Blackwater for more than $20 million for "security services" in Iraq, according to federal contract data obtained by The Nation.

This isn't the change I voted for. This group is an ugly remnant of Bushco that needs to be put out of business.
