Obama responds conclusively to brian Cork


yesterday I called upon president Obama to get off his high-horse and suggested that he simply show everyone his birth certificate with my post: brian cork is asking President Obama to be a LEADER.

doing so would simplify matters (and have him stop wasting even more tax-payer dollars), clear the air and let us all get to work, and allow him to demonstrate a simple step towards being a leader. clearly, he has a looong way to go on multiple fronts. but, this morning he finally allowed the certificate to be posted on the White House website.

to wit…

White House Releases Long Form of President Obama’s Hawaii Birth Certificate

President Obama posted a copy of his “long form” birth certificate, hoping to finally end a long-simmering
conspiracy theory among some conservatives that he was not born in the United States and was not a legitimate president.

The birth certificate, which is posted online at the White House website, shows conclusively that Mr. Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is signed by state officials and his

thank you, Mr. President. I have a reasonable list of next steps for you. I’ll have that your way over the next week or so.

see what happens when you take action, leverage influence (channel Thomas Jefferson), and believe your words have power? that is using our super powers for good.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

brian cork is asking President Obama to be a LEADER


Donald Trump is getting a lot or press and other attention of late not only because he has threatened us all, collectively, to run for president, but also because he is very good at saying things that are irreverent.

this has made him somewhat popular with weaker Democrats and Republicans alike.

but, Trumps’ influence is disruptive and will draw attention away from vital flaws found in the make-up of key party leaders pushing and shoving for a “poll-position”.

…I’ll not apologize for that pun.

one of the candidates adding fist shaking to the mob is Barack Obama. Trump has him squarely in his sites and is relentless in his hearty and ferocious efforts drawing unflattering attention to the incumbent. in fact, I’ll not be surprised if Trump throws his hat into the melee for a limited agenda that includes only foiling Obama’s desire for global demonization reelection. NOTE: he’ll use his own money to do it. and, this might end up making him a national hero that eclipses his ridiculous Apprentice. by the way, given Obama’s keen desire to be on late-night television (Leno), he may well be the first-ever president to appear on the Apprentice (a smackdown reunion, if you will).

Trump is not actually a threat to either party. in truth, the president’s aides probably hope to goad Trump into running, to the detriment of the Republican party. Trump’s antics cut off the air supply of GOP candidates who could be credible challengers. they make Obama look mature and reasonable.

…no, seriously. Obama could qualify as a pundit. look how passionate and firm in his convictions were over college hoops sweet sixteen.

but, Trump being involved in the elections can be useful. for example, we apparently now know (thanks to CNN?) that Barack Obama is a true citizen of the United States with a birth certificate found in the state of Hawaii ratifying the fact. personally, I’m delighted that he is a citizen (even though he did not actually live here until he arrived at for college). otherwise, someone might be embarrassed. and, Arnold Schwarzeneggar would be rightfully indignant. but, the fact that Obama has spent millions of tax payer dollars just to avoid holding it up to the press has Trump (and, well most of us) thumping our chests in outrage.

come on… Arnold would staple the document to his forehead on Saturday Night Live, and keep a straight face, I’ll wager.

I appreciate Obama making a stand on energy. that’s his thing, now, you know. but, that’s an easy one, mostly because no one expects him, or anyone to make a real difference, anyway. and healthcare is hard (Michelle is great on Disney Channel commercials. but Hilary Clinton had to travel). but, it makes for gallant sound bites. and Obama is very good at talking – except when it comes to making simple statements. mind you, it’s probably to Obama’s benefit to run against a grouchy, strangely coiffed tycoon with a taste for crackpot theories. if you were the president, would you rather spend the next eighteen months discussing your accountability around the dire facts about the budget and the economy – or, whether you were actually born in Kenya?

meanwhile, Trump is saying he refuses to reveal his tax returns, despite a mandate for all public office candidates, until Obama reveals his birth certificate.

that seems fair, to me.

and, all Obama has to do is shrug, set the drama aside, hop off of his high-horse and share a xerox copy of the certificate. end of story. pin in Trumps balloon. future president of the United Nations.

that would, in an odd way, demonstrate some otherwise lacking leadership.

look… to compete in an age group extreme race I still have to present a birth certificate. so, why would Barack Obama flinch in presenting his? we know he is a citizen, now (what we want is another matter). being stubborn (or, obstinate works) is not necessarily a trait you want to find in the leader of the free world. if this was a missile crisis, it would be one thing. but, smoking one hundred bills (tax dollrs) to create a smoke screen of self-indulgence is another. but, a clerical issue? come on Mr. President. we are laying-off school teachers while you are spending millions of dollars for your personal pride.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

InSanItY is not my Brother


Here is some perspective for your Saturday…

Consider this tirade by a pastor demanding that (Long-legged Mac Daddy) Barack Obama produce his Birth Certificate in the face of mounting state and federal lawsuits that the media appear reluctant to discuss.  

Youtube:  Produce the Dog Gone Birth Certificate!

Seems like this would be an easy and straightforward issue/ matter/ question to resolve.

Someone might find it of interest to note that the state of Hawaii holds that Birth Certificates are not public information.


A Wal-Mart worker in Valley Stream Long Island was killed today when “out-of-control” shoppers, desperate for bargains, broke down the doors at a 5 a.m. sale.

Youtube:    Wal-Mart Worker Killed During Store Opening Stampede.

Classic quote:  “…opened it’s doors to a CRUSH of shoppers…”.

Other workers were trampled as they tried to rescue the man, and customers shouted angrily, and kept shopping, when store officials said they were closing because of the death, police and witnesses said.

Nassau police said about 2,000 people were gathered outside the store doors at the mall about 20 miles east of Manhattan. The impatient crowd knocked the man, identified by police as Jdimytai Damour of Queens, to the ground as he opened the doors, leaving a metal portion of the frame crumpled like an accordion.  Apparently dozens of store employees trying to fight their way out to help Damour were also getting trampled by the crowd.

At least four other people, including a woman who was eight months pregnant, were taken to hospitals for observation for minor injuries, and the store finally did close for several hours before reopening.

Shoppers apparently stepped over the man on the ground and streamed into the store. When told to leave, they complained that they had been in line since Thursday morning.

Cork:  Fair is fair after all.  Given the litigious nature of this country, Wal-Mart will be lucky if it’s not sued in the event one of the stompers slipped in Mr. Damour’s blood and broke their fool neck.

More Cork:  Personally, I am trying to sort out how Laws of Natural Selection may best be applied here.

“This crowd was out of control,” said Nassau police spokesman Lt. Michael Fleming. He described the scene as “utter chaos.”

Even more Cork:  However, in defense, and possibly at the core of such a materialistic frenzy, were red-neck, gleam-in-the-eye bargains that included: A Samsung 50-inch Plasma HDTV for $798; A Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum for $28; A Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera for $69; and, DVDs of such epic hits as “The Incredible Hulk” for ONLY $9!

We can only imagine what the hapless Jdimyta must have been muttering (and, living the American dream) to himself as he approached that door to face the horde of coupon crazed morons.  And, what must have been his final thoughts as he was crushed under the heels of the ugliest of Americans?

Can you fathom the perplexity of people around the world – especially India – when they see the news reels on this one?

No word yet from Wal-Mart.

But, their earning are due soon. And, Wall-Street analysts are hoping for good news to bolster the DJIA.

All that makes sense (well… as much sense as) in light of this:

Youtube:  F*CK You Walmart!

…I want to make videos.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
