History is very well depicted in all foreign movies not produced by Hollyweird where only the characters are fictional.

We live in the Information Age, Realtime. I suggest you join us.

I have not posted one article or historical fact without providing a credible source or historic documentation to back it up.

Wish I could say the same for you. In fact, providing sources to back up your vast knowledge on just about everything has been sorely lacking when I think back.

And, like the rest of his impaired tribe, he believes O'Reilly is an historian, "Red Dawn" is a documentary, and James O'Keefe is is rather like Ken Burns.

Not true. Applicants frequently are asked for transcripts no matter how long they have been in the work force. They are also asked for a release of any records the police may have and a drug panel. This is very important for high level professionals and any occupation involving direct reactions with the public such as patient care.
Are you implying that the job of POTUS is at the same level of a as someone who stocks shelfs?
Really, at what age were you last asked for school transcripts for a job? After college, I only did the transcript thing one, that was to apply to get another college degree.

When you talk about certification for a particular occupation that has education requirements then yes a transcript may be required. To be a CPA, Board certified doctor, etc.

But for most jobs, the transcript become irrelevant to job experience.

So, what certifications are required to be President?

Actually, there were two books written by Obama concerning is life & he had been elected to the US in 2006 Senate.
He entered the national stage at the Democratic Convention in 2004.
If you don't know anything about Barack Obama, you must be the dumbest person on the planet.
What don't you know about the President?
One, he didn't write them and two, it is becoming more and more apparent that whoever did write them just lied and made stuff up. Three, I watched that droll fest called the Democratic Convention. Anybody can get up there and read a speech already written by other people of a teleprompter. Which ,by the way, were little known about in that time. Throw in a little reverb and and a little spot lighting and viola a puppet to fool the masses.

Don't even go there. Show me any poster on the left who condemned the filth spewing from their side.

Don't waste your time. You won't find any. Several posters on the right, including myself, have condemned it with our own.

That's the difference between your side and mine across the board.
We hold our own accountable.

Oh my, a dem representative, Maloney, states a background check-used for gun purchases- would have prevented the Boston Bombing.

I guess that fact that they both go boom makes them the same thing in her mind.

“Like a lot of my Democratic colleagues I was too slow to appreciate the recklessness of Fannie and Freddie. I defended their efforts to encourage affordable homeownership when in retrospect I should have heeded the concerns raised by their regulator in 2004. Frankly, I wish my Democratic colleagues would admit when it comes to Fannie and Freddie, we were wrong.”– Congressman Artur Davis (D-AL), September 30, 2008

It's like a breath of fresh air. A Democrat exercising critical thinking.

More could learn from him. This country would be a lot better off.

Wow just listed occupations which no matter how long you claim to be in profession still requests transcripts. Apparently your profession falls below these positions which demand scrutiny to ensure the public is protected from frauds.

Another example is family members who work as private contractors for the government have been put through intensive background checks that included calling a third grade teacher for one of them. It is BAD our leaders are not put through such intensive vetting.
