Gay people like the guy in the article are concerned about gay legislation. Blacks are concerned about black legislation. Whites are concerned about white legislation. People with big feet are concerned about big feet legislation. The whole point is that a liberarian gov’t wouldn’t legislate any of those things so people wouldn’t be able to oppose all these things. Therefore, limited gov’t as proposed by the founders does end up being the best.

Naturalization Act: “the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens”
Plus: one of Obama’s parents was a citizen.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse. First, Congress cannot act outside the powers of the Constitution, if the Constitution does not give Congress the power then they do not have the power to act. Second, the United States Constitution can only be changed through an Article V. Amendment, Congress cannot simply change it through Statute.
As such, the 1792 Naturalization Act did not change the constitutional definition of who is a natural born citizen, it merely gave us the Statutory definition. The very next Act on the subject removed the term altogether and replaced it with citizen of the United States, as did all Act's that followed.
The definition of a constitutional natural born citizen is the same today as the day the Founders inserted the term into the Constitution.
The United States Constitution requires the President be a natural born citizen or a citizen of the United States at its adoption, 35 years old, and 14 years a resident.
As far as the Constitution is concerned Obama is a citizen of United States, not a natural born citizen and since he was not a citizen of the United States when the Constitution was adopted he is not eligible to be President. Therefore, Obama is not the President, he is merely usurping the presidency.
HenryKnox, You left out the part where the parent is required to live at least 5 years afer reaching adult age in the US. Obamas mother did not

I don’t think people give up their Constitutional rights when they enter a public facility. They have the right to say what they want. I don’t believe we have a Constitutional right to not hear people speak their mind or heart.

I laughed at almost every line of this post. I can’t remember when I was this naive, but I did vote for Jimmy Carter. Have you ever heard of Progressivism. They get their foot in the door and then slowly boil you to death like a frog in a pot. 400 pages will quickly become 400,000.
 March 12, 2015 at 7:26pm
400 pages is nothing. Now that the gov’t has taken the Internet expect these regulations to grow to 400,000 pages quickly.

I don’t know why anyone would let their kids go to public school these days. People don’t understand why we don’t want the gov’t to takeover healthcare and the internet even after they see what they have done to education. You would think they could connect the dots.

These 52 represent the good guys. We need to let them know that we appreciate them. Thanks for standing up for the rule of law.

I don’t see why it couldn’t be built up to the point where it is connected across the international border. I don’t see what the fed would have to say about the states building there own pipelines. Once we have a pro-American President we could just make the international connection and be done.

Once he does though, watch out. When he begins he will be another Stalin and we will see gulags and concentration camps. Progressives start softly and gradually up their game. The beginning is what is called Political Correctness. Oppression ramps up from there.

If Hussein actually felt a responsibility to the American people then he would have undoubtedly signed the bill to provide security assuring energy.

The experiment has gone bad. It is time to eliminate the DHS.

When CNN is on at the fitness center I find it physically painful. There is a hack on named Ashley and she doesn’t even pretend to be fair and balanced.

If he is right then why would people not kill their neighbor and steal their things? What motivation is there to be a good citizen? If he is right then we are no different than coyotes or snakes or cattle or any other animal.
There have been civilizations throughout history that didn't believe in your god and that believed that stealing and killing was wrong. You guys didn't invent that. Sorry to have to be the one to have to tell you that.
He does not know what a world that is totally atheistic would be like because he is not thinking and has paid no attention to what life in the old Soviet Union was like (for the proletariat not the guys on top with their dachas) or what it was like in Nazi Germany or today in atheist North Korea....or a billion other places. Thinking cap was left at home on that one.
this is the unseen hand necessary to keep society civil. The difference is how each side handles the 'when no one is watching....' scenario.
Because we have evolved into a society that requires mutual cooperation for self benefit to exist peacefully.
Most of the natural world does this too.
All the packs, herds, schools, gaggles, groups, colonies, etc, do the same thing. It is the natural way, no magic required. We retain traits from our deep past, self preservation, male dominance aggression, etc.
Our societies were once similar to higher primates based on Archeological evidence. We evolved, sort of.
Direct evidence shows once a tribe grows beyond known family members a controlling force is needed to enforce law to deal with behavior interfering with mutual cooperation.
History shows that is when cultures invent religion, and there have been thousands of deities worshiped. Picture chief of tribe.
When a society grows to a certain population, government is invented to maintain peace and organize infrastructure, but is often corrupted by Religion. Almost gone are the kings of old, seeking guidance from the local powerful religion. Democracy limits religion. Picture country.
Once we were barbaric tribes, now we are a world in endless conflict driven by the fight for religious dominance of the major religious theologies.
I don't need a deity to threaten me to not kill someone. You don't either.
Man invented religion to exert control over man.
We are smarter than all other animals, evolution isn't always good, but it's nice to be on top. Just luck, not magic. Wake up.

Welcome to sin city DC. There is little doubt that people lose their souls when they stay in the nations capitol for very long.

He didn’t need to because he is protected by ‘white privilege’

Perhaps family values, good neighbors and integrity are more valuable than money.

I’m also worried about Arizona and Utah. So many ‘red’ states are flirting with evil that I fear for the future of the country. It is like a drug and once they start on it they will not be able to stop.

Welcome to the new America where the law is influenced by your connections.
"New". America has been this way for as long as I've been alive.
A full investigation might reveal how and where he obtained the magazine. Any bets that he bought it illegally? Or did he just instruct an underling to break the law?
I feel more ill than I usually do.

Perhaps the Potomac is the fountain of youth. We send adults to DC and they turn into children.

Anyone that believes the 9-11 attacks didn’t have anything to do with suppressing our constitutional rights is not looking at the facts. If we lose and are forced to live under Sharia we would be killed for protesting
