They all made pretty tall predictions before the election. Romney was leading everywhere according to them. They had that same feeling they get before every court hearing until their balloon gets pricked.

I wonder if you will find that to be funny?
Did you know that Obama is borrowing money on a US credit card to rebuild Mosques located in Muslim countries, while we have no money to invest in our own infrastructure?
Our Muslim pResident has to take care of his fellow Muslims or they might tell all of his secrets.
If the top one percent is sucking up 93 percent of the country’s wealth then it’s long past time the middle class gets handed something. Not even someone as dumb as you can stand to keep voting for that kind of inequality GB. Sooner or later it’s bound to hit you over the head like a sludge hammer that it is the rich who are screwing this country with the help of the Republican Party.

Obama’s not even fighting hard enough as far as I’m concerned with his willingness to give concessions on entitlements. It’s plain to see our downturn started with the Bush tax cuts and there should be no strings attached when they are restored.

Edwin J. Feulner, President
The Heritage Foundation
214 Massachusetts Ave. NE
Washington, DC 20002

Dear President Feulner:

The December 7, 2012 Morning Bell had the following statement:“Beyond that immediate challenge are opposite visions for solving America’s entitlement crisis, protecting the country from enemies, and ensuring that our Constitution continues to guide decisions in the halls of government.”

How can we ensure that our Constitution continues to guide decisions in the halls of government when no one will address the issue of President Obama’s eligibility to lead this great nation? Having been subjected to many in-depth background investigations during my professional life I am appalled at the cavalier attitude of both President Obama and the media when it is even suggested that he might not meet the Constitutional eligibility requirement identified in Article II Section 1 Clause 4. Had I even offered the least amount of resistance, when being asked for documents validating statements on my background investigations, I would have been out of a job immediately, yet the President is allowed to just ignore the issue while the national media resorts to name calling.

From the perspective of a history major (both undergraduate and graduate degrees) and a graduate of the United States Army War College (Resident Class 1994) the solution to the Constitutional question appears to be obvious. The most cursory review of the following primary sources should provide enough information to lead to a more detailed examination of President Obama’s background, a normal requirement for anyone having access to classified information.
(1) Emer de Vattel, The Law of Nations (1758) Chapter XIX Section 212 “The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.” Note the exact wording in (5) below.
(2) Benjamin Franklin’s letter to Charles William Frederic dated 9 December 1775 in which Mr. Franklin writes:“I am much obliged by the kind present you have made us of your edition of Vattel. It came to us in good season, when the circumstances of a rising state make it necessary frequently to consult the law of nations. Accordingly that copy which I kept,(…) has been continually in the hands of the members of our Congress, now sitting, who are much pleased with your notes and preface, and have entertained a high and just esteem for their author.”(Electronic Text Center, University of Virginia Library) This letter should dispel any argument that Vattel was unknown to the Founding Fathers.
(3) Article II Section 1 Clause 4 of The Constitution of the United States of America, rarified June 21, 1778 that specifically states “No person except a natural born Citizen … shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
(4) An Act to establish an (sic) uniform Rule of Naturalization approved by Congress March 26, 1790. In that Law Congress clearly identified those to be considered natural born citizens; “And the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens.” This act confirmed that the place of birth did not establish the identification of a child as a natural born citizen. What it did establish was the fact that both parents had to be United States citizens for the child to be considered natural born.
(5) In the 1874 Supreme Court Case, Minor v Happersett, Chief Justice Morrison Waite took the time to specifically address the issue of natural born citizen.“At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, distinguished from aliens or foreigners.”

Absent any amendments to Article II Section 1 Clause 4, the natural born Citizen requirement is still the supreme Law of the Land. The Founding Fathers were very careful in their wording of the Constitution. The words “natural born Citizen” are used only once and that is when the Founding Fathers were discussing the qualifications to hold the highest office of Government. The historical thread from Vattel thru the first Naturalization Law to Chief Justice Morrison Waite’s 1874 Supreme Court opinion is consistent. Each one identifies the requirement that the parents must be citizens in order for their child to be natural born. President Obama’s birth certificate shows that he meets the requirement to be a citizen but does not rise to the level of a natural born citizen. If my analysis is correct, what are the consequences of an ineligible individual swearing in his oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend” the very document he is in violation of? More importantly, if the Constitution is violated then what is the Supreme Law of the Land?

Any questions may be addressed to the undersigned at e-mail:

The new president of Egypt has sacked the military leadership and the new military leadership are all aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood. IMHO we should cut off funding to their military.

Well, you know, Poppo, shortly after Novembr 6, I mentioned LRS's election predictions and how prematurely triumphant they were. He challenged me to show him said boasts and predictions. I did. His reaction ? Ballistic. Such is birfoostan. I did love the way he totally lost it yesterday, though. But , enough is enough,'cuz I have this feeling, like it's no longer fun to constantly best a child or a moron. So unless he really pleads for it, I'm gonna let him slither along and ignore him.

Wait. Who are these hundreds of thousands of Egyptians in the street? Should we not give them some encouragement? And, as Poppo wrote, has the agreement with Israel been broken? Has Egypt threatened Israel? Good thing you're not in charge. Wait.

Oh, the friend who sent this to me is an Okie and he is a retired Army CW5. Just in case you don't know, Generals may talk to God, but God will talk to Chief Warrant Officers.

His name was Bubba, he was from Oklahoma and he needed a loan, so he walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan officer that he was going to Paris for an International Redneck Festival for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a depositor of the bank. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Redneck produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Redneck from the South for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's private underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, the Redneck returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out on Dunn & Bradstreet and found that you are a Distinguished Alumni from the University of Oklahoma, a highly sophisticated investor and multi-millionaire with real estate and financial interests all over the world. Your investments include a large number of wind turbines around Sweetwater, Texas. What puzzles us is why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The good 'ole boy replied, "Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?"

Keep an eye on those southern boys ... Just because we talk funny does not mean we're stupid!

Good one, at long last, though I think, not sure, I've seen it here before. Worth repeating, however. And the interest at $23.07 for 2 weeks is correct to the penny.

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".
In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c".. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f".. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.

Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl.

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi TU understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to oza pepl.
