This is not a post, directly, about events that may or may not have occurred in Hawaii some decades past. Keep in mind that you have the POTUS sworn in by the Chief Justice, and a unanimous resolution in the House supporting him. That makes three branches of the federal government telling you that's just the way it is.

The left-handed amusement I'm feeling is that, for all a sizable chunk of people are exercised about this point, no one is raising the same level of concern about the Social Security Act that they are about health care and the birther stuff.

While it's 74 years long in the tooth next month, its blatant 10th Amendment violation stands as the hugest, longest lasting political WTF in contemporary US history. This is the best example I can think of conforming to the ancient observation:
Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.--Matt 23:24
(For you non Bible-geeks: they would pour wine through a mesh into the cup, just in case it carried any divers.)


  1. Know how I know Barack Obama is eligible? Because if he weren't, Hillary would have found out in opposition research, and the only way he would have been the nominee is over her dead body.

  2. Ominously, your not one of the boyz.
