ran 5.9 miles
I’m getting back on schedule starting today. I had a big run tonight to compensate for the meager runs I had to begin the week with. There are so many different things I want to post about tonight that I’m having trouble focusing on one single thing. Instead of elaborating on one aspect of current events in this country that make so little sense, I’ll just throw it all at you in the form of a rant.

Congress and our president continue to get paid if the government shuts down. The madman in Libya that Ronald Reagan bombed in the eighties and who we are now “kinetically” at war with (but don’t call it war) wrote Barack Obama a letter saying, “Stop the unjust war on Libya…And good luck with the election…Libya is hurt more “morally than physically” by allied nations. Yes, he really did write a letter to Barack Obama and requested that we cease bombing Libya, followed by best wishes for the upcoming election. How will our military react if they do not get paid due to a government shut down? NATO dropped bombs on the wrong side…again, striking rebels instead of Gadaffi’s forces. And who are these rebels? The man burning copies of the Qur’an in Florida has a $2.4 million bounty on his head from Hezbollah and has received over 400 death threats for the actions he and his thirty member church committed. Keep it up, Trump! As plausible as Barack Obama’s legitimacy may seem, there are just as many curious details that reasonably question Obama’s origin. When someone spends millions of dollars in legal fees to keep a simple birth certificate locked away, it is reasonable to believe that that person is hiding something.

1,442.0 miles to go.


  1. Did Obama really spend millions of dollars in legal fees to keep his birth certificate locked away? Sounds like a rumor to me.


  2. Birth certificate, medical records, education, everything. It was his first executive order to allow no public access to his past. Whether the legal fees to do this came out of his pocket or taxpayers' pockets, I don't know. But lawyers serving presidents can't be cheap.

    It is hard to know what is real, but for a man to not show his birth certificate when it is requested by the people he is serving is absurd. If I want a job I legally have to prove who I am through an assortment of documents and personal numbers. What makes Obama different? There is no reason for any human being to behave the way he does in this situation.

  3. The executive order in question is Executive Order 13489. "Executive Order 13489 - Issued by President Barack Obama on January 21, 2009, restored the implementation of the PRA of 1978 as practiced under President Reagan's Executive Order 12667 and revoked President Bush's Executive Order 13233."

    (President Reagan's) Executive Order 12667 established a procedure for former United States Presidents to limit access to certain records which would otherwise have been released by the National Archives and Records Administration under the Presidential Records Act of 1978. It was issued by President Ronald Reagan on 18 January 1989. The Executive Order was superseded by (President Bush's) Executive Order 13233 (drafted by Alberto Gonzales) on 1 November 2001, which allows former Presidents to have greater control over which records are released by the NARA. President George W. Bush's Executive Order 13233 was then revoked by President Barack Obama on January 21, 2009, his first day in office, who essentially restored the provisions of Order 12667 in his new Order.

    Do you remember when 8 U.S. attorneys were fired and the Bush administration conveniently deleted millions of emails?

    Obama's first executive order was to actually restore transparency - a good thing for America - I don't think people intend to spread false information... it just evolves.


  4. Like I stated above, it is difficult to know what is real, even when it appears to be right in front of your face. The executive orders you mentioned above are one thing, but the fact that Obama will not show his birth certificate to anyone is another. If these executive orders are established or revoked to increase transparency then why will he not show the simplest gesture of transparency to the millions of Americans who want to see it? Granted, for someone to believe that Obama's birth certificate is fraudulent they have to assume that the state of Hawaii and a whole slew of other entities and people are involved and that their credibility would be zero if an unknown truth were to get out. But this is my problem, and I think it is a sentiment many others share, by not showing the actual document in question he feeds the doubts people feel. If he had simply shown it when this all started the argument would be moot. It is a matter of principle and it has carried enough gravity to make numerous states revise their requirements to be more strict and specific regarding documentation for elected officials in the immediate future.

  5. Should Obama ask the hospital to make public his vital records after he made his birth certificate public? That's for him to decide... but to claim he is spending millions to keep a birth certificate locked away is another. And I know that it isn't one person generated the rumor. But they basically took something good that he did and used it against him in a devious way. This is the same thing that happened when people were saying that Obama was telling Wisconsin protesters to get in people's faces.
