About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

Which one of them is bang and which one of them is pop?

I say bring it on!

They stirred this shit up about President Obama. So be it, then, too, for teddy-boy. Traitor ted, according to the NY Daily News recently (his picture is right there with Yertle, Tehran tom the Traitor Tot, and little rand paul the Kentucky pip-squeak with the Brillo-pad on his head). Fair is fair, after all.

I felt like I was the only one making an issue out of this yesterday, until I saw the clip of "The View," where Whoopi Goldberg and one of the other hosts were both making an issue out of it, and calling for the birth certificate to be presented for public view.

Since the bad guys pulled this shit so much against President Obama, I say "Back ATCHA, assholes!" But OUR point is more solid here than yours ever was. ted cruz can't run. He's ineligible. PERIOD. And no "but... but... but... john mccain" - john mccain was born in the Canal Zone way back when it was still a US territory. So as he was born there, it was considered official US soil. Hell, you can be born at the US Embassy in Moscow or Saudi Arabia or Beijing and it won't matter. The grounds of that US embassy is American soil. So if you were born there, then you can claim to be born American. Doesn't matter who or what citizenry your mother is. It matters WHERE your mother WAS, when she birthed you.

Hawaii was the 50th state when President Obama was born there. It had been the 50th state for a couple of years before he was born there. Canada has never been ANY-number'dth state. Canada is a separate sovereign country. If ted cruz was born there - he wasn't born on American soil and he is thus INELEGIBLE.

Dayum! The lady ROCKS!

With all the shit her poor husband has to put up with day in and day out, I'm happy he gets to come home to this at night.

She's so glorious and gorgeous and brilliant - GREAT role model for American women just in general! And for American mothers everywhere. And for American working mothers everywhere.

Sassy. Rhymes with Classy.

And she's both!

So are you, too, btw, sheshe2!

I miss her too.

Still love you, nadin! I miss you too!

Absolutely Positively LOVE this part:

"But if you are a Christian devotee of Ted Cruz's and you read this, feeling even the slightest bit uncomfortable at the notion of the fantasy Muslim candidate, well, now you know how the rest of us feel about your man.

(Actually, you're probably thinking that we already have an evil Muslim president, so who cares about you.)"

All I can say is - "What YOU said, Your Rudeness."

"Because they were crazy first" is not one of the reasons I cited.

1) Because he was NOT born on US soil - don't care WHAT his mother was. It matters WHERE she was when she gave birth. If she was on US soil when he popped out then he's a US citizen. She was in CANADA when he popped out. And last I looked, Canada was NOT one of the 50 states - OR US territory or possession.
2) Because john mccain - nope, that doesn't hold either. john mccain was born on US soil. His mother was in the Panama Canal Zone at a US hospital installation there, I believe. The Canal Zone back then WAS a US territory or possession or whatever they called it. Like Guam. Like the Virgin Islands. Like Puerto Rico. They're not states either. But they're considered US territory and if you're born there, you are automatically a US citizen. So that counts FOR mccain.
3) Because Obama - Nope. Not the same thing. President Obama's mom was in the 50th State when he popped out. And Hawaii HAD BEEN the 50th state for at least a couple of years before his birth. And yeah, she was an American citizen too. Just like we're told ted cruz's mom was. But it matters more WHERE she was when she gave birth. She could be on the moon and, if it's an American installation, it's technically American soil. She could be at the US Embassy in Moscow or Beijing and THAT is technically American soil, too. But cruz's mother was in CANADA. Have we annexed Canada? When did the US do that? Was I asleep in bed when that happened?

Well then, so be it. Let him drive. Straight over a cliff.

Welcometo DU, sloopdog50!

Glad you're here! I'm making that point as frequently as I can. He Wasn't Born On American Soil. I don't care how anyone slices or dices it. ted cruz was NOT born on American soil. Therefore he is NOT eligible to run for POTUS.

Now we can split all kinds of hairs here, buying into the "but... but... but..." stuff, how his mom was an American citizen so... but then the other side would have to shut up about Barack Obama, too, because HIS mom was an American citizen TOO. AND she was also white (to further complicate their argument!)! But Barack Obama, unlike ted cruz, WAS born on American soil because Hawaii was a state, and had become our 50th state in 1959, at least a couple of years before President Obama was even BORN. As of yet, I've not seen anything about Canada being annexed or made into a US territory or possession - even retroactively.

And with john mccain, same thing - HE TOO was born ON American soil, even in far distant Panama, because he was born IN the Canal Zone - which was a US territory or possession - I forget which. But US territories and possessions ARE considered US soil. Like the Virgin Islands and Guam and all that.

Yes. mccain was indeed technically born on US soil - because the Canal Zone was, at the time of his

birth, a US territory or possession, or whatever the category was. Not all of Panama. Just the Canal Zone. So yes, john mccain qualified. Because a US territory or possession is still considered US soil. Just as every embassy is, no matter where it's located. That embassy for that nation IS, technically, on that nation's soil. So if john mccain had been born on the grounds at the US Embassy anywhere on the planet, he would still be considered a citizen born on American soil. Same thing for ted cruz. But that's not what happened with ted cruz. ted cruz was born in another, separate, sovereign country: Canada. He's a North American citizen, but then again so are the citizens of Cuba and Mexico and Central America, too. But none of them qualify to run for President of the United States.

Yeah. Exactly. That's exactly my point. And as I watch the coverage of this (after the speech -

I didn't waste my precious time during that monumental grandstanding showboating reeking crap. I went to the kitchen and made a cup of coffee instead) I am stunned that NOBODY is bringing this up. NOT ONE. Not andrea greenspan, not any of the reporters on-scene, not the talking heads on the after-panel, NOBODY. Is this really NOT an issue? How come nobody in the press is bringing this up? Hell, we hung on every word of every birther on the planet a few years ago - and even, still, nowadays. But NOTHING is said about this very clear complication ted cruz has? Now if anybody feels a need to challenge any politician's birth certificate, HE is the one that deserves it. And NOTHING is being said. Not even in jest.
