You are delusional.
We have equipment returning from Iraq and Afghanistan that is not being repaired, but set out in to lots to rust.
As mandated by protocol and policy,
We have pilots, who are not piloting and their skills are getting usty and the pilots graduating from flight school are not developing their skills.
How did we ever get through the 80s?
Obama toke the U.S. Enterprise out of service two years early so he could spend the money on things like birth control and Obama phones.
Toke? Methinks you did a bit of that before writing your post.
As we speak, only half of our carrier groups are deployed or capable of being deployed on short notice.
Operational tempo was at an all time high for the past ten years. The Navy requested down time for several of our vessels. Do your homework before looking silly.

Our air defenses and submarine fleet are the true spearhead. Mid air refueling has limited the need to conduct jumps from deck. Carriers are nice but the Joint Chiefs say we only need 11 and only several need to be deployed at any given time.
For the first time since WWII we have no carrier task force assigned to the Mediterranean Sea which could have helped out during that Ben Ghazi thing!
How so?
The F-15s have been in-service for since 1976 and they are literally falling apart.

Dumping it on the President is funny. The Joint Chiefs have several reduction plans in effect. Those plans were largely conceived shortly after the Cold War stalled.

We would have had more money to spend on R&D had the last President not started a war that was wholly unnecessary.

By the way, have you seen our Raptors? A couple years ago I was in Guam and saw them up close. The 22s make the 15s look like skateboards. Like the B-52 and UH-1, aircraft is not perpetually mission critical.

I thought you were high before but maybe it is liquor that stupefies your writing.

If you ask a question, use the proper punctuation. Logic would also be a nice addition to your posts.

It is okay that you are bitter at those of us who make you look silly.

The US Supreme Court is correct and you are simply wrong. You can CLAIM that the US Supreme Court violated the Constitution, but that is only your OPINION. Nobody believes you, and besides, it is wrong.

“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.]

Can't you read? I just told you that all that stuff is just about useless now. We are in 2013. Your soldiers, OUR soldiers in Afghanistan, most of those killed, were killed by roadside bombs and booby traps. What are the planes and infra red guns and helicopters and armoured jeeps doing about all that? Defending themselves, is what they are doing, to the point of forgetting their mission.

No problem. Just fix them with 100 mph tape.
An inspection of all Air Force F-15s turned up 149 that also had thin or rough finished longerons and nine jets with cracked longerons.
Since the inspections, the Air Force has cleared most of its 420-plus F-15s to return to flight. However, Eagles with questionable longerons must be inspected more often.

Who cares? What do you intend using the F15s for? Interception of ICBMs?

<quoted text>Irrelevant!! We are now under Constitutional Law not English Common Law.
And what is the language of the Constitution based on?

Answer: English Common Law.

You would have us disregard our common law heritage from the English in which Chief Justice Marshall observed "whose language is our language and whose laws form the substratum of our laws." U.S. v. Burr 25 Fed. Cas. 55, no. 14,693 C.C.D.Va. 1807

In fact, we are informed that "The framers of the Constitution were familiar with common-law concepts and the words and phrases employed by common-law lawyers." In re Gannon, 27 F. 2d 362 , 363 (ED PA 1928)

“In many cases, the language of the constitution and laws would be inexplicable without reference to the common law; and the existence of the common law is not only supposed by the constitution, but it is appealed to for the construction and interpretation of its powers.“ James Kent, Commentaries on American Law (1826) page 316

And this is from your good buddy Chief Justice Moore of Alabama:
“Our jurisprudence explains that old English statutes are a part of the common law. The statutes passed in England before the emigration of our ancestors, which amend the law and are applicable to our situation, constitute a part of our common law.” Ex parte HH, 830 So. 2d 21, 33 (Alabama 2002)( Moore, C.J., concurring)

If the term in the Constitution "natural born" were to be construed other than its common law origin then in the words of Chief Justice Marshall "It is hardly conceivable that the term was not employed by the framers of our Constitution in the sense which has been affixed to it by those from whom we borrowed it. So far as the meaning of any terms, particularly terms of art, is completely ascertained, those by whom they are employed must be considered as employing them in that ascertained meaning, unless the contrary be proved by the context." U.S. v. Burr 25 Fed. Cas. 55, no. 14,693 C.C.D.Va. 1807

“Where so important a distinction in the Constitution is to be realized, it is fair to seek the meaning of terms in the statutory language of that country from which our jurisprudence is derived” quoting Alexander Hamilton, Pollock v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Co., 157 US 429, 572 (1895)

Pop Quiz:
What country is the Pollock's court referring to when it mentioned "language of that country from which our jurisprudence is derived?:
a. Iceland
b. France
c. England

<quoted text>LMAO!!! Sorry, but English Common Law citizenship hasn't been used since 1866/1868, citizenship is now by Constitutional Law.
Wrong.

Civil Rights Act of 1866 and the 14th Amendment codified the Jus Soli principle of the English common law.

These laws were in response to the majority opinion in the Dred Scott decision. The drafters of these laws acknowledged Justice Curtis' dissenting opinion the Dred Scott case in which he wrote:[W]e find that the Constitution has recognised the general principle of public law that allegiance and citizenship depend on the place of birth. Scott v. Standford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)(Curtis, J, dissenting)

In 1927, almost sixty years after the ratification of the 14th Amendment, Justice Taft writing for the court in Weedin v. Chin Bow, 274 US 657 (1927)observed:

"The very learned and useful opinion of Mr. Justice Gray, speaking for the Court in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, establishes that, at common law in England and the United States, the rule with respect to nationality was that of the JUS SOLI," Id at 660 (emphasis added)

Moreover, "At common law and under the early judicial determinations in the United States it was established that birth in a country conferred citizenship.. In re Reid, 6 F. Supp. 800, 802 (D. Or. 1934)

Finally, the court Schneider v. Rusk, 377 US 163, 170 (1964)
observed: "Our concept of citizenship was inherited from England and, accordingly, was based on the principle that rights conferred by naturalization were subject to the conditions reserved in the grant."

“United States nationality depends primarily upon the place of birth, the common law principle of jus soli having been embodied in the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. Cabebe v. Acheson, 183 F. 2d 795, 797 (9th Cir. 1950)

Now you need to explain as to why the courts since the ratification of the 14th Amendment have gotten it wrong about the source of our citizenship laws.
