  1. Can we never get a break from these politicians who zip from one massive issue to another without resolving the past issues?
    We have no budget, people are now without health insurance, we’re still at war just about everywhere, and on and ….

  2. OT: if you have c-Span check out the hearings on the ACA.

    The Dems are blaming the Repubs for , well, everything wrong with it.
    It’s astounding. Their claim- if only the Repubs hadn’t been against this law, it would all work smoothly..on that meme.
    It’s not clear who those people are who sit to testify, but they are as elusive and slippery as the best pols. ” I don’t know who did that, I don’t have that info, we can’t give a date, we did the best we could, we don’t know who made ‘that’ decision”.

  3. Great minds we’ve got a hearing about the debacle of Obamacare going
    on very contentious and a waste of time. Nothing but buck passing. Now I guess the petulant child has seen a new shinny thing to pursue
    and take the camera away from another failure of his grand design. He
    has serious problems that Americans will pay for but he fails to see that
    Americans aren’t as stupid as he is but we are always the ones who pay
    and suffer for his grandiose delusions.

    • I think the majority of Americans are awake concerning thelies from this administration. It is one lie after another, finger pointing and blaming the repubs. I don’t think most people buy it anymore. Why do you think they stood against the war he wanted in Syria.

    • since you have to give ALL of your identinty information to these throughly unvetted, unmonitored “navigators” (or to a completely unsecure Web site), what BETTER way to get “clean” SS numbers to willing future Obama voters…

  4. Sigh. Every time I see “Obama Immigration Remarks”, I keep hoping it’s his confession of HIS actual immigration status, but alas! it is not to be…

    • Obama was born in HAWAII, as his birth certificate and the confirmation of the officials of BOTH parties in Hawaii, and the Index Data and the birth notices sent to the Hawaii newspapers by the DOH of Hawaii in 1961 all show. Since he was born on US soil he is not an immigrant, and since EVERY child born on US soil is a Natural Born Citizen (except for the children of foreign diplomats), he is a Natural Born US Citizen. That is why his election as president was confirmed unanimously by the US Congress after both the 2008 and 2012 elections.

  5. Just read comments from someone else somewhere else — the child of immigrants. I would give acknowledgement to this person but they are unidentified.
    That being said—
    Quote:
    “My grandprents came from Belguim and stayed on Elias Island for a couple months. They had 5 years to learn the Constitution and to learn English. Then they took the test to become Full Legal American Citizens. My father was born 3 years later, HE was a Natural born Citizen.

    BUT, the LAW back then was, IF my grandparents DID NOT become American citizens in the 5 years allowed, my father would ALSO be considered an immigrant. The law back then also had the freedom to send ANY immigrants back to the country they came from IF they did not complete knowing the constitution and learning english within those first 5 years.

    This is the way it STILL SHOULD BE, or we wouldn’t be in this mess with all these illegals and others on green cards still here after 20 years and STILL DON”T SPEAK ENGLISH and burn our flag in the streets. This is one MAJOR reason we have Welfare States!!!

    • Re: “my father would ALSO be considered an immigrant.”

      Answer: That was NEVER the law. The US law has always followed British common law in that every child, repeat EVERY child, born on US soil is a Natural Born US Citizen at the moment of birth (except for the children of foreign diplomats).

      That goes all the way back to the writing of the Constitution, and we have quotations from American legal scholars at about the time that shows that that was the case. For example:

      “Prior to the adoption of the constitution, the people inhabiting the different states might be divided into two classes: natural born citizens, or those born within the state, and aliens, or such as were born out of it. The first, by their birth-right, became entitled to all the privileges of citizens; the second, were entitled to none, but such as were held out and given by the laws of the respective states prior to their emigration. …St. George Tucker, BLACKSTONE’S COMMENTARIES: WITH NOTES OF REFERENCE TO THE CONSTITUTION AND LAWS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA. (1803)

      “Therefore every person born within the United States, its territories or districts, whether the parents are citizens or aliens, is a natural born citizen in the sense of the Constitution, and entitled to all the rights and privileges appertaining to that capacity.”—William Rawle, A VIEW OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 2d ed. (1829)

      And that is STILL the meaning of Natural Born Citizen, as the Heritage Foundation book on the Constitution shows:

      “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.]

      And:

      ““Natural born citizen. Persons who are born within the jurisdiction of a national government, i.e. in its territorial limits, or those born of citizens temporarily residing abroad.” — Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition.”
