Exploring the berths again

Well, I thought that all of this craze about Obama's birth certificate would be finished and over by now, but it just keeps coming back.

Today a soldier has filed for conscientious objectors status because he claims that Obama was not born in the US. ( http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/news/story/776335.html )

Before we go further, let me clarify how this captain sees things, and some history..

First, I believe that President Obama is a citizen of the United States -- that is not even in question here. Secondly, I do not believe that the Certification of Live Birth that has been presented on the Internet by his campaign was forged. If someone would like me to go into more detail (I was vetting this in a previous post), I can.

Actually, there is the primary issue -- we have been shown a Certification of Live Birth, sometimes called a "short form" birth certificate. This is essentially a computer-generated report from a database that is laser-printed onto some fancy certificate stock and then stamped, signed and sealed by the clerk that the state is happy to charge a premium price for.

This short form is not really accepted for a lot of items, such as a US Passport, etc. Even the State of Hawaii may not accept it as a proof that someone was born in Hawaii.

And here is where people are still having problems -- this is the easiest thing to clear up, and yet everyone meets resistance. If someone has nothing to hide, why is such an effort made to hide it?

Now, apparently, the current hospital that is espoused as President Obama's birth hospital has been using a forged white house letter for fundraising purposed. (This and more at http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=103898 )

I really wish I could just sail these seas and not keep being drawn back into this berth, but it just does not seem to go away. And for those who are asking "what difference does it make?" it is simple -- if President Obama is not a "Natural Born" citizen as designated by the Constitution, then he is in office in violation of the very document that he has sworn to uphold and protect. Think about the moral ramifications of that for a moment. This would indicate in a clear-cut manor a blatant disregard for the Constitution and the foundation of this county and may indicate an attempt to undermine it. That provision is in the Constitution for a reason -- to protect against foreign interests attempting to gain control of the country.

In the mean time, we will have to settle for our government simply seizing our financial interests and selling them to China and Italy.
