Conflicted on this one

Army doctor Lt. Col. Terry Lakin has been sent to prison for six months and will be dishonorably discharged for refusing to deploy for a second tour to Afghanistan.  Lakin took this action because he wishes President Obama to produce his long-form birth certificate to ensure those deployment orders are indeed coming from a legitimate natural-born Commander-in-Chief.

Dr. Lakin appears to otherwise be an excellent doctor and military officer.  It's unfortunate that this situation has come to this.

We don't quite know how to opine about this case.  We understand the need for military discipline and order, but there certainly is an awful lot of obfuscation going on regarding Obama's official records, and not just his crappy birth certificate, either.

We're not necessarily lumping ourselves in with the "birther" movement (although a simple 5-minute check of our records confirms that our birth was attended by a Dr. William Wallace at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Maryland.  Why won't Obama just spend the $12.50 or so and release his own set of birth facts rather than shell out upwards of 2 million dollars fighting people who wish to confirm them?), but we do admit that the sheer amount of Dear Leader's records which have deliberately been hidden from casual public view is nothing short of astounding:

"In fact, there is more than a certified, long-form birth certificate -- a lot more -- about Barack "Barry Soetoro" Hussein Obama that no one outside the hermetic world of sworn-to-silence hospital personnel, state vital records workers, and college bursar-level functionaries has ever seen.  A partial list would include, in addition, Neolani kindergarten records, the Obama-Dunham marriage license, the Obama-Dunham divorce records, the Soetoro-Dunham marriage license, Soetoro adoption records, the Punahou School application and records, Noelami Elementary School records, the Soetoro-Dunham divorce records, consistent selective service registration info, SAT scores, LSAT scores, Occidental College records, financial aid records, passports, Columbia University records, putative Columbia thesis on "Soviet Nuclear Disarmament," Harvard University records, Harvard Law Review records, any writings as president of the Harvard Law Review beyond one tough anti-fetus fragment, Illinois bar records, certificates of baptism or adoption, medical records, Illinois State Senate records from 1997-2004, Illinois State Senate schedule, law practice client list while at Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Gallard, University of Chicago scholarly articles, and more.  Oh, but we do have a document from the Fransiskus Assisi School in Jakarta, a Catholic institution, which shows him enrolled as Barry Soetoro -- as a Muslim and an Indonesian."

The Mystery Man remains unrevealed.  

One fact is undeniable, though - the liberal-dominated major mainstream media completely ignored its vital function of vetting this man during the 2008 Presidential campaign.

Give me a break. Most of the records on that list are private and cannot be released by the governments involved. If he, or anyone else, doesn't want to release them, then TOUGH. Some of them (the divorce stuff) may not be available to him.

Furthermore, the birth certificate that he released is the birth certificate released by the state of Hawaii. There is no such thing as "long form" birth certificate. The original paper record is in a vault, and what has been released is what can be released under state law. The Republican governor of Hawaii has inspected the record (lawfully) and has stated that his birth record exists and is valid.

All of the arm waving about him being a Muslim or having given up his citizenship by going to Indonesia is garbage. The step-father said something, which doesn't make it correct. Citizenship cannot be renounced by a child; that is a long, involved process that only an adult can do. Those falsehoods and all of the others are pure, utter bilge spouted by idiots.

If the man wants some privacy in his records, then so be it. I would like privacy in my records and would not allow them to be published.

Also, "liberal-dominated major mainstream media" ? Please. They are run by conservative companies; anyone who spouts the liberal-run line isn't paying any attention. They often don't cover major "liberal" causes, like the ground-zero first responders bill being blocked by the Republicans.

You obviously get the gun rights and police brutality stuff, but you spout falsehoods about other things.
