Bush was hounded endlessly about his military service and records....did that make the members of the Democrat party nutjobs in your mind?
(In my mind, they are nutjobs for other reasons, but I digress)
While I am not convinced either way, I see no reason why Obama himself can't ask for the long form release of the birth certificate and his extended package of college and school records that have NEVER been revealed.
At best, he is playing a game with your so-called "birthers" to humiliate them....at worst, he is not qualified to lead our country constitutionally because his birth is not in line with the requirements of our Constitution.
And when you factor Obama's history of radicalism, anti-Americanism, and lack of respect for the Constitution, it is hardly fair to label as nutjobs those who simply want extra proof from a man who clearly hasn't shown immense respect for our Constitution.Comment Posted By sharprightturn On 24.07.2009 @ 12:29

While I understand what you are saying about efforts that could be made on the environment by Republicans, the thing you have missed or perhaps not said this clearly enough for me is: The Left treats our environment as a religion and much of what they preach to our kids and to us is based more on pushing through an agenda than what is best for our environment.
Example: When I was young, with parents that lived through the Depression, we were taught at home not to waste anything...food, power, clothing, water, etc. We were also taught to place trash where it belongs, keep the lakes clean, re-use paper and fabrics for other purposes, and to enjoy our land which is so plentiful in this country. Those are a few examples that come to mind. They were taught by people with real experience and common sense on matters pertaining to earth, conservation, and the environment.
My parents and their parents were experts at simple conservation such as reusing food scraps on the farm, generating fertilizer from their cattle, making towels from feedsacks, etc.
Somehow they didn't need Obama or vast government to explain conservation nor the importance of the land to them.
Move forward to today, literally, and my 8 year old daughter comes home and tells me she had an "Earth Day" assembly at school. She told us that the earth made the wind; the earth makes the plants grow, how not saving water hurts the Rain Forest....and on and on. Crock -o- crap.
She is being force-fed propaganda from a government whose interest is more about power and wealth-spreading than about true and realistic means of conservation and respecting what God has given us.
I think most "conservatives" know that most of the "green" movement and "earth day" propaganda of the last 3-4 decades is nothing more than an agenda--it is not a real sincerity in respecting the land and environment.Comment Posted By sharprightturn On 22.04.2009 @ 20:36
THAT is what turns those of us "real conservationists" off-- it is the Left's attempts to bamboozle this country into energy production that doesn't work and is costly to boot. As someone once said, the government has their hand in our pocket, in our cars, in our homes, over our children, and much more -- most of which to fulfill a retention of power and an agenda.
Until I see sincere efforts at rationale conservation and common sense approaches to energy--in the spirit of my parents and their parents--I will continue to be one of the "turned off" conservatives who abhors the untruthful attempts by the left to control lives in the name of the environment.
