President Obama's Birth Certificate aka Oh My Goodness What is Wrong with You People!

Okay I fully intented to stay away from politics on this blog since my ideas are bizzare.  I tend to be physically conservative, socially liberal, and I HATE the idea of socialism.  For the most part I am all about personal responsiblily and personal freedom.

Anyway that said they finally released the long form copy of President Obama's birth certificate. Let me tell you what I think about that. So what? He was elected President (unfortunately in my opinion not that the republicans put up a very good alternative) and so he is our president.  I think we have bigger things to worry about after the fact then whether this newly released Birth Certificate is real or faked or is he or isn't he a US born citizen. Bigger things right now to worry about than if he is Muslim or did he go to a Muslim school or was it all a huge conspiracy to get him in office.  So here are the things I would like to see our government leaders focusing on instead of a piece of paper that may or may not have been faked (give me break).

In no particular order:

  • Gas prices nearing $4 dollars a gallon.
  • Unemployment Rates at 8.8%
  • Increase in the number of people visiting food banks for help by an average of roughly 50%
  • There were over 650,000 people reported to be homeless in this country as of 2009. and U.S. statistics show that 50% of former foster youth will be homeless during their first two years exiting foster care.
  • In 2010 there were over 450,000 children in foster care in the United States.
  • The child poverty rate in 2010 was 18.2%
  • I saw a thing the other day that said 50% of all Latino girls will be pregant before they graduate High School.
  • North Korea is working on a Nukes program.
  • More and more and more and more and more jobs and factories are being sent out of country.
  • The United States of America is principally a transit and destination country for trafficking in persons. It is estimated that 14,500 to 17,500 people, primarily women and children, are trafficked to the U.S. annually.
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), since 1973, over 45 million legal induced abortions have been performed in the United States (what could we do to reduce this number?)
  • The United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the industrialized world. According to, a site managed by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, states that there are "750,000 teen pregnancies annually. Eight in ten of these pregnancies are unintended and 81 percent are to unmarried teens."
  • In June 2010 the College Board report shows average increases of 6.5% for public in-state tuition
  • To date there have been 7202 Coalition Military Fatalities in Iraq and Afghanistan 6012 of which were US military.
I could go on and on and on but I think you get the point. I would welcome debate, arguement, discussion or solutions to any of these problems but for Heaven sake can we quit fighting over what doesn't matter at this point and just fix our country!  We are in trouble here!  It is time to move past whose fault it was (i know it was ALL Bush right) or if President Obama can legally be our President (they faked this new birth certificate didn't you know) and let's just find some solutions before it is too late.
