The Latest Birther, Facebook, The Border Fence And Paul Volker


*Show me your papers, Mr. President. In case you missed it, Rush Limbaugh has joined the debate about where Barack Obama was born. Rush took to the airwaves on his hugely popular radio show last Friday and declared, “It’s stunning to me… Where’s the President’s vow to end the debate over his birth? We’re going on four years on this… So much of this is difficult to fathom, to believe.” Stay tuned, folks. We may finally find out if our President really does have a Hawaiian birth certificate.

*Sorry, all you Facebook fans. Pity that no one in this country is allowed to purchase any stock in the company, no matter how much you are willing to pay. You can thank the regulators in Washington who see it as their mission to protect you from your own stupid investment decisions. Even if you think you still live in the land of the brave, here’s more proof it ain’t the land of the free anymore.

*There goes the border fence. The Department of Homeland Security — yes, the same organization that says groping your grandma is necessary for national security — has abandoned plans to complete the border fence between Mexico and Arizona. I don’t how much of the billion-dollar budget had already been spent. But I do know that Secretary Janet Napolitano and her buddies have no real interest in protecting our borders. Heck, those illegal aliens may be voters some day.

*Paul Volcker joins the bailout brigade. I don’t mean that the former Federal Reserve chairman is promoting yet another bailout of yet another industry. No, it’s Volcker himself who is bailing out, as head of Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Think it might be because no one, emphatically including the President, listened to any of his recommendations?
