The Nacilbupera Guzzle

Whoever examines with attention the history of the dearths and famines … will find, I believe, that a dearth never has arisen from any combination among the inland dealers in corn, nor from any other cause but a real scarcity, occasioned sometimes perhaps, and in some particular places, by the waste of war, but in by far the greatest number of cases by the fault of the seasons; and that a famine has never arisen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting, by improper means, to remedy the inconveniences of a dearth. (Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations IV.5.44)

Has Obama Committed Fraud?

If there is one thing that upsets me most about a politician, it is when he or she is involved in an illegal activity.

I mean, it's one thing for Clinton to have sex with Lewinsky, but another for him to lie under oath about it. Clinton should have been impeached then and would have if it hadn't been for his Democratic buddies in the Senate; that deeply angers me because I view the Presidency as a noble office for noble citizens NOT liars and cheats. I am not purporting to be self-righteous: we are all sinners and make mistakes, but we are also accountable for the wrongs we do.

I have been watching the likes of Jeremiah Wright and self-proclaimed bomber Bill Ayers come out of the woodwork now that their good friend Barack Obama is president-elect; hey, I rather expected that. It is frankly repulsive--for example to listen to Ayers' continued rhetoric that he was "demonized" for doing the right thing at a time when "thousands of our people were being murdered by our government every month." He then applied his "militant" philosophy to our day: "...just as today, I don't think we've done enough to stop these wars." So, would he bomb again today? Or, being older now, would he encourage others to do so? Yet in the end analysis there's no crime committed in Obama having radicals as friends and Obama has condemned Ayers' actions and left Wright.

Obama has committed a crime in the distant past: he admits he did illegal drugs including marijuana and cocaine. Pretty despicable, but at least he was honest about it and appears to have left those days long behind. For that I can forgive him.

There is a update on a very low-simmering story that has finally come to head concerning whether or not Obama registered for the draft as he was legally required to do so. Debbie Schlussel's recent blog on this subject highlights several extreme irregularities.

I am by nature cautious and skeptical of stories from new sources to me personally. I didn't and don't bite the hook on Obama's so-called forged birth certificate. But being an amateur genealogist I have general familiarity with US government documents and am very concerned that this document may likely be forged.

Schluessel's points are well-documented and easy to follow, but I also enjoyed the Breitbart video interview with Schluessel as well.

Briefly, some of the concerns supporting the forgery of the document are that:
(1) Document Locater Number appears to have been number issued this year rather that 1980
(2) The postmark seal appears to have been forged
(3) The document form (either Feb 1990) issue date is ten years after Obama signed it or altered (Feb 1980) in which case no such form exists

Here's the bottom line: if the document is a forgery, then who signed the form, housed in Obama's hometown of Chicago? Did Barack or a surrogate sign it? If so, then Obama is a fraud. If so, Obama has no noble choice but to resign. Nixon did the noble thing and resigned when he committed a crime.

I agree with Schlussel that an independent investigator be appointed. I am tired of electing government officials and either want my faith renewed in my president-elect that my suspicions are wrong and he is not a crook or I want him out of office.

No Crooks For President!

I want to know how much Obama helped with voter fraud.
