Well, sorry you had to demean yourself, and dimninish yourself by using a person's screenname as a pejorative. I, will of course, refrain from any number of ideas i could come up with, regarding yours....

As to, the 'first phone call'.....YOU said, his first phone call after being 'elected'.....that happened in November, 2008.

AS President, AFTER being sworn in....and NOT his 'first' phone call, as you allege.....his JOB is to try to diffuse the situation in the Muslim World.

Don't know, don't care, WHERE you get your inflammatory baloney info.....but, THERE are about sixteen pots boiling on the stove, right now.

When I cook, and a pot is boiling over, my first instinct is to reduce the heat. IF the knob breaks off, then I try to fiind someone else who might be able to fix it.

Our prior Prez.....well, he just kept calling in the 'Maytag Repairman', closed his eyes, and hoped it worked!!!!

Being a President is a little like being a pilot. (Or a CEO....similar in certain ways...)

A President is like the Captain of the airplane. If he makes a mistake, the 'management' (which, at first blush is the Congress, as representative of Americans) should say something, of course.

A CEO has a Board of Representives from the Corporation, to answer to....so, the CEO has to 'captain' the 'ship' of industy.

Same concept....'any failure'....will propagate up.....UNLESS.....it can be shown that there was a singular failure by someone in the crew.

BUT, and here's the point....a Captain, or a CEO, or a President, relies on his crew. IF the crew fails....well, the Captain, the CEO, and, indeed, the President should take full responsibility.


EDIT...to add an analogy....suppose you were an airline Captain who, because the previous Captain died, and you were riding in the back, on Holiday, were forced to help a situation where, in your four-engine airplane, one engine had quit, one was on fire, and the other two were prodicing only partial power. Further, since you've been riding in the cabin, you were partially aware of the severity of the emergency.

NOW!!! You're in charge, and will take over to address the worst situations first, to stabilize the airplane.

That is sorta what Obama is facing, right now!

I would say that because Whitewave is a good ole boy/gal from Ok-e-le-homm-la, she considers it beyond question that she's white and therefore, obvioulsy American.

It's only black presidential candidates that after being vetted by numerous agencies and being sworn in, have to still provide proof that they are American.

Racial hypocrisy on ATS???? What? I can't believe!!!!


I really can't let this go, mckyle. If you're suggesting that Okies are rednecks, racists, uneducated hicks then I take umbrage with that in the extreme. I am of mixed race myself, have a college degree and have travelled extensively.

Apparently, in your limited little mind, anyone not in agreement with your POV must be uneducated, backwoods and racist to boot.

The mans' own grandmother said Obama was born in Kenya. He has no political experience and, for the last time.....he's not black. He's HALF black.

I don't give a flying flip what color the man is (or half is); I'm a "half breed" myself. I don't even care what his politics are. I'll be willing to listen to his plans for change (and no doubt change is needed) when the man proves he's eligible to make those changes.

I didn't care for Bush's tactics either. I don't think he won the election fairly but his opponent conceded rather than fight it. Not a lot anyone can do about that. It doesn't even matter to me which sock puppet takes the office of president as there isn't a dime's worth of difference between them and hasn't been for over 100 years.

What I do care about is that our constitution is being trashed on a grand scale. Obama, if a lawful president, can change things all he wants and I'll be fine with that but not if he's changing the constitution. Since he started right out ignoring it by refusing to prove his eligibility to BE president, I don't have high hopes he'll pay any attention to the rest of it.

Oh, and one last thing about your deeply offensive remark implying I'm a racist: if every black person in this country voted for Obama (and I personally know several who didn't vote at all), Obama still would not have been elected if the whites had not gotten out and voted for him as well.

Being white (or in my case, somewhat white) does not equate to being a racist. And in case you lack the education to know, it's spelled OKLAHOMA, not Ok-e-le-homm-la.

Get him Whitewave!!!


Yeah...I think the being white so therefore American was about as ignorant a statement as I have ever read...here or anywhere. I can tell you that I Am AMERICAN...not because I am white(and PROUD to be)...but because I was born to American parents in Oklahoma. I can prove this beyond ANY doubt. I think the entirety of the issue is...wait for it...can the POTUS. I don't believe he can, given the information that is available.

Take the statements being made for what they were intended for...without your un-educated, back-asswards, ignorant, and un-wanted small minded views attatched mckyle!

while i admire this soldier for making the statement, if he thinks this will go anywhere he doesn't understand what he signed up for. You give up rights that a normal US citizens has when you become a soldier, you are essentially part government property, that is part of the sacrifice. I know from experience there are thousands of soldiers that outrank this guy who are far more dangerous and or stupid than Obama, those are the people he needs to worry about.

McKyle -

You offend me. You attack a logical statement with demeaning intent and prejudice. Instead of attempting to argue your point and convince WhiteWave of your reasoning, you attack an entire group of people, whom you obviously don't know, and haven't had the privilege and pleasure of interacting with. The question of Obama's validity is an honest look at the measures of the Constitution, and whether or not they are being fulfilled. Racism has no bearing on what WhiteWaves statements and questions were. In point of fact I would submit that you yourself are being racist by jumping to any conclusion that you believe has racist overtones in a statement made without racist comments. Please keep your derision to yourself and don't attack a group, lifestyle, population, or state in your attempts to justify your ignorant, and quite frankly, incorrect position. The best way to put this would be "Shhhh...the grown ups are talking". At this point, I must inform you that you have ignored me long enough and I am leaving you,

Sincerely,
Your Intellect.

As for the OP, this soldier has every right to criticize and critique any orders from a CiC that credentials haven't been proven. If more soldiers had this mindset, maybe the holocaust wouldn't have occurred. Maybe the Tienanmen Square catastrophes wouldn't have occurred. This soldier is using their God given right to free will and excellent ethics to do exactly what they swore to do. Protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

That's twice you've mentioned your education. Hmmm. Someone's got a complex.



The mans' own grandmother said Obama was born in Kenya.


*sighs deeply* A fabrication... but anyway.... So you cling to proven falsifications whilst completely ignoring verified screenings from, NSA, CIA, FBI, etal. that all confirm his legitimacy. What Polytech did you get your certificate from again????



He has no political experience...

He does have policitcal experience, but how does that relate to your argument that he is illigitimate? Oh yes. That's right. It doesn't. But it's aways good throw in some emotive, non-relevant bits, when you don't have an argumentive leg to stand on.



and, for the last time.....he's not black. He's HALF black.


*sighs deeply and shakes head*



I don't give a flying flip what color the man is (or half is); I'm a "half breed" myself.


Erm... thanks for that bit of info.



I didn't care for Bush's tactics either. I don't think he won the election fairly but his opponent conceded rather than fight it.


So, by your analogy, if McCain had not challeneged Obama's birthright, then you wouldn't be on the redneck rampage about this issue yourself. Well stone the crows and hog-tie me to a moonshine sthil!
Congratulations, you've just just shot down your own argument for a legitimate pretense. McCain didn't dispute Obama's legitimacy!!!




Since he started right out ignoring it by refusing to prove his eligibility to BE president, I don't have high hopes he'll pay any attention to the rest of it.


Do you bother to ever check your "facts"? or do you just parrot whatever the other good ole boys are spouting?

Obama did provide all relevant documentation.

That's because most educated people don't consider race as an issue when weighing up the merits of a candidate to lead a country - and lets be thankful for that.



Being white (or in my case, somewhat white) does not equate to being a racist. And in case you lack the education to know, it's spelled OKLAHOMA, not Ok-e-le-homm-la.


Thanks for the spelling lesson. But I was actually just spelling it s-l-o-w for our racist, redneck readers.

He also took an oath to uphold the constitution, as he says. If it is true that it is part of his job to uphold the constitution, he has every right to question Obama's credentials if in doubt.

I wish Obama would just provide it to end all this. Is it really that hard?

All three of those organisations are the most untrustworthy agencies of them all. The ones that brought you 9/11.

It amazes me, that in this day and age, people still blindly give their trust to those who least deserve it...

I'm not talking about blind trust, but what reason is there to suspect that they all took part in a conspiracy to falsely legitimise Obama's rite to become president?

Or are we to open another can of worms and disregard anything and everything those agencies do?

Back to the original post....I believe the soldier has the right and standing to ask for what quite frankly a scary amount of citizens are asking for..a sane, logical demonstration by any of our Judicial or Legislative SERVENTS of Obama's constitutional validity. Doesn't "a government of the people, for the people, by the people" mean that these people that work in the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches of the government are us....our peers....equal to us...paid by us...elected by us...there to address our concerns...etc,etc,etc? Why do I feel like a helpless pauper trembling under the shadow of untouchable royalty-a monster we created? Of course people are getting weirded out. Isn't it clear something is f*cked up here in the most dire way? Obama has wasted no time in a post inauguration full tilt assault on fundamental constitutional rights. He is already copying Hoover's disastrous big government solutions to the depression we're falling into (which was caused by the same government). Shouldn't the president know basic history and economics? My spidey senses are tingling. Unless Obama and the rest of the policy making politicians are complete utter retards (no offense to my special spirits) they must be purposefully tryng to destroy whatever is this country, and replace it with God only knows....Fill in your own nightmare here.... In conclusion I reiterate- that soldier has the right to validity as do we all. This is what happens when a country that was formed by a brave few who stood up together for freedom, turns into a country where all sit alone and pay others to stand up for them.

"As an active-duty officer in the United States Army, I have grave concerns about the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the office of president of the United States," wrote Scott Easterling in a "to-whom-it-may-concern" letter.

www.wnd.com...


I will be willing to bet that this guy also belongs in the "Obama is a Muslim" crowd. Anytime and everytime I ever heard Obama's full name being used in an argument against him, it was always to try to link him to being a Muslim, being an Arab, or a "terrorist sympathizer."

If this man is so willing to avoid taking orders from Obama, then who does he still think he's following? Bush? Cheney?

ok....thanks.....for responding on this thread....

second line....thanks again.

third, in case anyone thinks I'm shallow, well....I just watched a show on HBO today. Title was 'Taking Chance'.

Not everyone has access to HBO, I know.....but, such a moving film, makes me cry as I type....AND, it is NOT political, is is human!!!

So, no matter WHAT you may think of ANY Commander In Chief, what I learned today is, you obey. Because, the CIC is there, of course.....but pfc Chance Phelps was killed in 2004.....the movie is about him and the Marine who neverfknew him, who volunteers to be the Special Escort to accompany his remains, to his Family.

So.....we had GWB, never really served in the Military, WJC, not so much either....but.....GWB's father, who DID serve!!! Of course, the saint, Ronald Reagan.....he didn't serve....except, from 1937 to 1945....except, although he enlisted, according to Wiki...he was nearsighted, and spent his years in Service at desk jobs....

GWB....AWOL most of the time.....his celebrity, and influence from his Family.....cut him a lot of slack.....

Clinton....nah, he didn't go into the Military either.....but what defines a leader is knowing when to surround yourself wiht those that know, and have experienced more than you...and knowing how to listen.

Admit....Obama....no military experience....but, we had virtually the same thing with GWB, and WJC, before him.....which one of those last two Presidents helped the Economy?? Which one of those last two Presidents bothered to form their OWN 'Cabinets', and not listen to their 'Daddy's' ideas????

I think it's obvious....WJC, he help our Country. GWB.....was spending most of his time sticking square blocks into round holes.....

The furture is prime....embrace it!!!

(hint:....Electoral College, 'Bush'.....Popular vote, 'Gore') this, in 2000....the rest, with an 'encumbent' "President".....fear, fear and more FERA!!!!! Did I mention FAER????? as a campaign strategy, orchestrateds by the turdblossom..... Kerry? TOAST!!!!

NOW.....Obama.....not only a landslide in Eletcoral Votes, but also in the popular vote....so, what is the problem?????

According to the way the U.S. views democracy, you should always have the option/choice to question the orders you are given. It is a democracy, not a dictatorship.

Look,if anything this just shows how easy it is to fool people.We in this nation have never elected a president ever the decision has never been in our hands it's been with the power-brokers and electoral colleges Obama's eligibility is being used as a tool to divide us and to keep the illusion of of the "two-party" system going.

First of all, my apologies to these three people.

It was not, is not, nor ever will be my intention to hurt individuals on this board intentionally otherwise.
Yet nevertheless, I can see that some of my overheated comments did in fact do that. So again, I apologise.

Whilst the fine state of Oklahoma and the good people who live there were on the receiving end of my flippant remarks, they were made without due thought and too much passion. And so I extend my apologies also to the state and it's people.

I thank you midnightbrigade for making me realise my vitriol.

Now, let us continue

weedwhacker: well said. I couldn't have put it better.

During the initial attempts by Gore through the courts to get a just remediation, it was agonising enough, and then to see the outcome and live four years of presidential transgressions - aka the Imperial Presidency.

Not to mention the second term, Rove, Scooter, etal.

And now that legacy of corruption, global tension, financial collapse has been bequeathed to an individual who has it all in front of him...

Please people, be patient with our new leader. He arguably has more heaped on him than FDR.

This further proves the ignorance of Obama opponents here regarding this birth certificate conspiracy. They are willing to believe an unauthenticated random audio tape of somebody claiming to be Obamas relation and even at that Barack Obamas father is also named Barack Obama.

Also heres another revelation, according to the lady who identified herself in the audio tape, that was not Obamas grandmother or blood relation, on Obamas family tree "sarah" is Obamas fathers step mother whom was not the same individual as the grandmother introduced before. So even from that information itself its flawed... seriously listen to the tape and actually reference it here


In anycase these folks are willing to believe what some audio tape of individuals claiming to be Obamas relatives, unauthenticated, as opposed to the confirmed birth certification and natural born status from the state government, health officials etc. It just shows the logic of this whole thing. Folks desperate to believe this garbage.

I listened to the guy on the radio station on this audio tape, pathetic, he was acting all religious and rightous, stating that "i want to come pray with you if you admit obama was born there"... its one thing to spread these lies and propaganda around, its another thing to profess god himself in this. Conservatives really think that they are the only "true christians" and everybody else is godless... it just unbelievable... Just some political stunt, not true christianity.
