Yep. “People are morons.” I’m quoting my daughter here and I have to say that I agree with her. People are morons.
Jayme Song, AP, reports on 28 July 2009 that Hawaii has declared President Obama’s citizenship to be legit. “I … have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen,” Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said in a brief statement. “I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago.”
The sad thing is that we tend to vote these people (read morons) into public office every two to four years and we have no one to blame but ourselves for accepting their public displays of stupidity (reference any of the recent spats of marital forgetfulness that has been in the news lately, corruption cases, inconvenient murder, etc.). The biggest boobfest however, besides anything having to do with Sarah Palin, is The Obama Birther fiasco. Rush Limbaugh. Lou Dobbs. The 10 Republicans from Congress that have co-sponsored a birth certificate bill to prove, what, that people were born – not hatched or raised by wolves? What about in-vitro insemination? Adoption? Can Madonna’s or Angelina’s babies not grow up to run for public office?
Perhaps there should be a bill requiring that people running for office (or using the media to comment/report about public office holders) need to show proof that they passed a high school United States History class (not Texas History, the U. S. History) and either pass a high school or college civics class that focused on understanding the U. S. Constitution (not Alaska, not Oklahoma, not South Dakota or Missouri, the U. S Constitution). Passing with a 67 in either class would be unacceptable, just the same as having a doctor operate on you that is only successful with 67% of his operations – almost failing a U. S. History/Constitution class by a public official is dangerous to all citizen’s constitutional rights. Will anyone sponsor my bill?
Our public servants need to understand that when an American mother delivers a child in any one of our 50 states (this includes Hawaii), or while in an airplane, train, taxi cab, or cruise ship, her child will be an America citizen even if that child has brown, black, red, yellow, tan or any mixture of skin color. [Everyone knows that with white skin you don’t need proof of a live birth – right? **I had to add this remark for the ole boys out there.]
Why is this so hard to comprehend? Do I need to start at conception? People are MORONS.
