With only a few short days to go before the November 4th presidential election, Attorney Philip Berg is appealing his “Obama eligibility” lawsuit to the U. S. Supreme Court. On Thursday, Berg filed a Writ of Certiorari and an application for an immediate injunction to stay the election. The story of the case, virtually absent from the mainstream media, is heavily detailed in Berg’s website, Obamacrimes.com.
Berg’s suit, Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-4083, had been dismissed in a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, federal court on the grounds that, as Berg states, “According to [federal] Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U. S. Constitution.”

For the fourth time in three months, Sarah Palin has demonstrated that she still does not understand the duties of the Vice President of the United States.
This all began on July 31, 2008 when Palin said that she’s still waiting for someone to tell her what exactly it is that the Vice President does every day. On October 2, 2008, at the Vice Presidential Debate, Palin said that the prior question had been a misunderstood joke, and went on to state that not only is the Vice President the leader of the Senate, but that the constitution would allow the VP more authority when working with the Senate if the VP chose to take it. The following day she stated that the President directs the duties of the VP. She also recognized that the VP’s position in the legislative branch is only to oversee the Senate, but contradicted that by adding that this position provides “flexibility” and “authority” if the VP seeks it. And finally, answering third-grader Brandon Garcia’s question, “What does the Vice President Do?”, Palin began with the correct answer: support the President’s agenda. But she had to go on:
But also, they’re in charge of the United States Senate, so if they want to they can really get in there with the Senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom. And it’s a great job and I look forward to having that job.

According to President Bush this bailout is a good deal for Main Street. He assures us that the tax dollars invested will pay for themselves and then some. Oh really? That’s the definition of a good investment. Well, if this is such a good investment why aren’t private investors rushing in to snap up these assets and companies at bargain prices? Hint: Because they aren’t good investments!
Adding the $700 billion to the rest of the actions taken recently (Bear Stearns, AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, FHA rescue bill, and the rest) the total balloons to a whopping $1.8 trillion, and counting! Where is this money coming from? Unfortunately for us, it’s coming out of thin air! Anytime the government spends more than it receives in tax revenue, they engage in deficit spending. This is accomplished by the Treasury Department auctioning Treasury Securities on the open market. These are the same securities that China has purchased to the tune of $2.2 trillion. With me so far?
