    The wake up call here is to require identification and citizenship disclosure and ban illegal aliens from public office and election.

    We need a federal law now that states and declares eligibility of elected government since we no longer have contort of borders and who is living under false identities. Foreign nationals to not have rights in the country and that includes serving in elected positions.

    We nod only have people ignorant of our culture and laws, they are ignorant illegal occupation. Why did we bother to stop the Nazi's and Japaneses from invading this country and open the flood gates to hell from Mexico?

    FYI to all illegal aliens, anchor babies are not guaranteed citizenship nor their parents. The 14th amendment does allow citizenship to be revoked and its time we start applying 14th amendment restriction on granting anchors any rights as americans and education restrictions based on parents citizenship and legal immigration status. Illegal immigration is a hoax and not a valid concept. Illegal occupation, illegal aliens, foreign nationals, and no entitlements or rights is their true status in the USA. Sympathy titles do not alter or change the laws, the 14th amendment, or grant any rights.

    This does speak volumes about these people and those who voted for the mayor.

    Although not directly related to obama, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that these individuals and those who voted in this mayor dia also vote for barack.

    I would be curious to know if any White people ran for mayor. Only wondering if racism played a factor. Clearly something had to be the deciding factor, and surely it wasn't the guy's educational background that had the voters excited about him.

    It had to be something.

    I love how some people can turn *anything* into a rant on Barack Obama! Who says a politician has to be educated? It should be a no-brainer, but anyone can get elected to small-potatoes government in this country if s/he is charming enough. I'm not aware of a court that puts complete transcripts online so that readers can weigh the evidence and decide the case.

    Yes, these are scary times, and yes, we do need to wake up.

    We need to wake up and learn to disregard completely the kinds of comments posted by some of our gullible fans of hate radio like the one who calls himself samhill.

    However in the paragraph about what has been happening for years to our country, he almost redeems himself as he acknowledges the roles played by previous administrations and so-called "conservatives" in Congress.

    We do need to wake up and start looking carefully at candidates' histories and qualifications before simply punching the voting machine button with a party label instead of the name of the best qualified and most honest candidate.

    "The unschooled and illiterate former mayor of the scandal-ridden suburban city of Bell had no training that would have alerted him that his huge salary was illegal...."


    "Unschooled and illiterate", without so much as an elementary education, and yet, this was the guy that the citizens of the fair city of Bell chose as their mayor.

    What does that say about them?

    Come to think of it, considering the track record of the person recently elected to a **second** term as U.S. President, what does that say about the electorate of the entire country!?

    The corruption and complete fiscal irresponsibility shown so egregiously in Bell is !!nothing!! compared to what is and has been happening for years to our country.

    These are scary times folks, and we'd better wake!

    I think I've read about this strategy in a Legal Defense textbook available on eBay.
    The next chapter outlines the, "I was just following orders" strategy.
