Ludicrous.
You are neither discussing the facts nor the law.

“Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are "natural born citizens" and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether children born abroad of United States citizens are "natural born citizens" eligible to serve as President ..."---- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005)[Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]

If it is about Obama, they twist the issue. I just Googled "snopes obama college records" and this is what I got:
http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers...
Ah, what does Obama's SSN have to do with his college records?
Who knows? And where do Ohama's college records have to do with ... Obama? That is highly personal information. Why should we have access to that? It's why you got the phoney SSN reply, as that is all the poor computer can find. And at the same time, totally debunks the false Obama SSN number affair. And, btw, it used to be, I believe, a Penn number, now it's a Hawaii one. Go figure.

Oh, how about Romney's college records and his last 10 yrs income tax records? What's he afraid of? Certified copies, like Obama's long and short form records, will suffice thank you. True, he does not have to produce those records, but then Obama didn't have to produce his BC either and he did anyhow. What say you?

I knew that was exactly what you were doing. You're misreading what it says. Notice how "or" is used here; After the Revolution, States retained only those portions of common law that were applicable to their local circumstances. The practice of England at the time was every person born within the realm of the King was a natural born subject by virtue of birth alone. In the United States, such a rule was not strictly followed as children born to black slaves, transient aliens, or Indians, followed the condition of their father.
Notice that black slaves, transient aliens or Indians are separate and independent of each other. It doesn't get much clearer than that!
\\

Answer: Black slaves, transient aliens and Indians were not allowed to be citizens. But the definition of Natural Born was the same for them as for US citizens. They could not be Natural Born Citizens because, duh, they were not allowed to be citizens. But the moment that they were allowed to be citizens, the old definition of Natural Born applied and the ones of them who were born in the USA became at that instant Natural Born Citizens.

The meaning of Natural Born still comes from the common law and refers to the place of birth.

Sorry, Barfer Girks, but I was only pointing out that there is no "or" in the sentence. Do please learn English grammar. I am an expert, so I can teach you if you need help.
Too bad for birfoons the law of the land per the HIGHEST COURT IN THE LAND, the United States Supreme Court, is the law in Ark. Citizenship by birth is irrespective of the parents if they are born in the US under its jurisdiction. The court defined jurisdiction as applying to aliens. Only those who are born to invading forces and ambassadors are excluded.
You can quote old law at length. You can submit colloquy as evidence in your brief. Opposing counsel will move to have it struck, and the judge will do so. In fact, your silly birfoon case will never make it to trial as this is long settled law that the court says is from "ancient principle."
These are the exact reason why birfoons are such losers. You're not literate enough to read and understand a case. You disrespect the law and procedural rules. This is why birfoons have lost 165 cases so far.
Be a dumbazz, it is your choosing. An expert? LMAO Don't tell me we have another Prof? LOL

Tom Brokaw turns on Obama! The Lame Stream Press is turning. They are no longer in neutral! If the LSM is going to remain relavent, they must address the hard issues.

Tom Brokaw Says President Obama Must Answer For $1.1 Trillion Deficit ‘That Happened On His Watch’ VIDEO
by Tommy Christopher | 4:03 pm, October 14th, 2012

On Sunday morning’s Meet The Press, legendary newsman Tom Brokaw joined moderator David Gregory in evening out the “specifics” narrative that has dogged Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney by demanding that President Obama give more details about his plan to control the deficit and debt. Brokaw said that in a 2008 debate, then-Senator Obama “was saying,‘Look, we’ve got a deficit of a half a trillion dollars. I’m going to get that under control.’ Well, this week that deficit is $1.1 trillion and it happened on his watch. He’s going to have to answer to that.”

By the time President Obama took office, however, he was handed a $1.017 trillion deficit by President George W. Bush.

have you read it in its entirety or did you just read a headline that you can't resist? Or don't you understand it at all?

BTW, yes, Chuck Todd said that. Is that the same Chuck Todd who worked on democratic campaigns in Florida at one time and authored a book on Obama? Goes to show, eh Rogue, how those lame press lefties can be unbiased in their reporting. When was the last time Foxnews.com , WND.com , americanthinker.com , newyorkpost.com do that?

Another Rube myth. Please name ANY ECONOMIST who defines recession by that measure. Trouble is rube has NEVER read even one book on Economics (he doesn't deny this), and so has no idea how economists define important terms.

If the inflation rate is LOWER THAN the GDP growth rate, does that mean the economy is NOT in recession?

I don't recall using trailer trash and inbred, though I admit I may have. But, sigh, again you've failed, as I may have used those epitheths in retaliation for much-worst profanity-laced language at which you are an expert. However, I'll try to refrain from insulting the trailer trash and inbred by calling you that.

Oh, I dare say, I'd be proud to call myself a refugee, but not so proud to call myself trailer trash and inbred. LoL.

You see, LRS, and judging from my above paragraph, you just do not measure up. You don't know how to properly evaluate comparisons. Sigh, you and Rush are so alike. I digress. I reportedly called you trailer trash and inbred. Reportedly, I stress. Okay. You retaliate by calling me a very honourable name, to wit, refugee. Thank you for that. A true compliment. You place me in great company. Einstein, Fermi, Von Braun, Solshenitshyn, Da Vinci, Picasso, Gouzenko, Gabriel Garcia Marques, Jorge Luis Borges, Pùblo Neruda etc, were all at one time refugees. Not one of those names shows up in the trailer trash or inbred list. Sorry. Do try to be choosier next time, eh boy.

VERY SIMPLE. By its action in Kerchner v. Obama (cert. denied 2010), the Supreme Court upheld President Obama's eligibility against all of the "birther" babblings.
HOW IGNORANT OF YOU THAT YOU CANNOT DEAL WITH THE KERCHNER CASE. Because it dealt specifically with the eligibility of Barack HUSSEIN Obama and his false and fraudulent state-issued birth documents and his false and fraudulent social security number it is CONTROLLING WITH LEGAL FINALITY.
How obsessively ignorant and uneducated of you to persist with your strained and debunked misreadings of The Law.

So you think we should just stiff the people we owe, huh? Why would any Nation or person NOT want to be debt free? I'm debt free and can tell you that it makes all the difference in the world to an individual. I don't know of any businesses that are based on a model of carrying a huge debt. Perhaps the witch doctor can explain next time you channel him.

Please identify the WRITTEN DOCUMENT that clarified which portions of the common law were applicable and which portions were not.
You must be a "birther," because you state things that are absurd on there face and which you cannot support by reference to any controlling written document.
That is why you have a GED, and couldn't even gain admission to junior college.
