Oh good. Dufus Dale's play law is back for another run.Mr. HOWARD: I now move to take up House joint resolution No. 127.
The motion was agreed to; and the Senate, as in Committee of the Whole, resumed the consideration of the joint resolution (H.R. No. 127) proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
The first amendment is to section one, declaring that all "persons born in the United States and Subject to the jurisdiction, thereof" (US Constitution), are citizens of the United States and of the States wherein they reside. I do not propose to say anything on that subject except that the question of citizenship has been fully discussed in this body as not to need any further elucidation, in my opinion. This amendment which I have offered is simply declaratory of what I regard as the law of the land already (Civil Rights Act of 1866), that every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction (US Constitution), is by virtue of natural law (God's Law) and national law (Civil Rights Act of 1866) a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens,(notice the comma) who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons (who aren't subject to a foreign power, when born here). It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country (when the states made citizens of the US).
Mr Howard offered the above, it was accepted in its entirety and ratified in 1868.
Obama was born a citizen of his father's country and not eligible for citizenship to the US, unless naturalized.
All these weeks in the basement and no new material? Poor pathetic Dale
