@CodyFlecker @JaclynBarnes @Edward53 Cody, a person must be born in the United States to be a citizen at birth. His parents do not necessarily have to be citizens. That is called a "native born citizen". At least that is how it is interpreted today.
However, a different level of citizenship is required for a person to be President. In order to be President, a person must have been born in the United States AND his parents must have been citizens when he was born. That is called a "natural born citizen".
The distinction is very important. The Founders wanted to make sure that the President did not have any divided allegiances. It could be very dangerous for the President to have an allegiance to another country, especially if war breaks out with that other country. The President must unequivocally have allegiance to this country and ONLY this country because he is given so much power.

@myselfagain If someone had been armed in the school, Adam Lanza would have been stopped and those 26 people would be alive today.

@RobertHayesHalfpenny It's not attacking the Obama girls to question their excessive vacations on our dime. That is questioning their parents for sending them on such vacations. It is OUR money, after all that is paying for these vacations. If the Obamas would pay for everything on these vacations, including the pay of the Secret Service agents, the planes, the gas,etc., then it wouldn't be an issue.
@CodyFlecker@SkyeADG@bcluks NIce try in trying to pin the Conservatives like the Nazis. It's not us that is fanning the Race Warfare. It's Mr. Obama , Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder and their crowd that continually fans the flames of race warfare, class warfare, anything warfare.
Obama routinely denigrates rich people, conservative people, successful people, people who don't agree with him, any person who is Black, Hispanic or a woman who is conservative and religious people (clinging to their guns and their Bibles).
The only reason people mention Obama's biracial make-up is because his supporters routinely claim that we don't like him because he is Black. This is just done to attempt to bully dissenters and get them to shut up.
It's an old tactic of Governments to get the citizenry divided so they don't notice what the Government is doing.
@CodyFlecker @bcluks Not true. People also had cannons, swords, grapeshot, blunderbusses, long knives and daggers, bayonets and sabers in addition to the flintlock rifles and single shot pistols. These were the state-of-the-art weapons of the day. The ordinary person had the same firepower as the military.
The Founders specifically wanted the citizenry to have the same firepower as the military so the people could prevent tyranny of the government.
@SkyeADG @CodyFlecker @bcluks Actually, IMO, it would be illegal for an amendment repealing the 2nd amendment to be brought forward. To do so, would be infringing on the rights of the people to keep and bear arms, which the 2nd Amendment forbids.
The first ten Amendments were meant to be set in stone forever. To infringe on any of these rights would be defeating the purpose of our country (to ensure freedom and liberty).
@texaselect Fine, then you and other like-minded individuals can put your money where your mouth is. YOU start a fund for children who "don't have food at home for lunch", and you supply lunches for those kids. I, for one, know that there will be several that don't truly need any assistance and will take advantage of you, because that is human nature and unfortunately more so now than in the past.
On a personal note, for at least half of my children's childhoods, my family earned just above the poverty level. People who earned just slightly less than we did, lived better than we did because they got all the freebies - free breakfast and lunch, food stamps, etc. We were just "doing our best", just like the family that you described above. Somehow, my children always had enough to eat, had clothes to wear and a house to live in. How did we do it? We were very careful with our money, I cooked from scratch, bought our clothes from thrift stores and garage sales, mended our clothes, used coupons, used unit pricing to determine the best price on groceries, and we fixed our own cars.
If we can do it, then why can't these other families? My guess is that they are living too expensively for their means and that is why they don't have enough food.

I think the point of this article is not that we should be prying into the Obama children's lives. He is asking why it okay to pry into the Newton families' lives but not the Obama's children's lives. Why do his children deserve privacy but not the families of the dead Newtown children? It's a double standard.
There should be no school lunch program. All kids should bring their lunches from home. Those who currently qualify for "free lunches" (i.e., subsidized lunches), are most likely on the food stamp program. Their parents can get their groceries from the store with those food stamps and then pack their kids a lunch.
This completely eliminates the cost of paying cafeteria staff and the cost of the cafeteria equipment and associated costs.
@DavidLeoHeatherly @ashforkdan @whisperatnight The Founders did not mean regulated by the Government! They meant the militias should be regulated by themselves, as in well disciplined. It makes absolutely no sense for the Fed. Govt. to regulate the militias, when the purpose of the militia and the 2nd amendment was so the People could defend themselves against tyranny of their government. How exactly are the militias supposed to defend the People and put down a tyrannical government if the government controls the militia?

@whisperatnight ALL of them.
@DMJ @Joy J Oops. I made a typo: "another broke his promise of "No New Taxes" which infuriated the Republicans." (George H.W. Bush)
@Joy JObama was re-elected because most incumbents win. It goes along with the idiom, "Better the devil you know, than the devil you don't know".
'Going back 17 Presidents (to McKinley), 10 have won re-election. 2 could have won re-election, but they were assassinated, so to be accurate with the statistics, 10 of 15 Presidents won re-election . Of the ones that didn't win re-election, 2 were assassinated (Kennedy and McKinley), one was facing the worst economic times the U.S. had ever faced (Hoover), one was never elected in the first place (Ford), another was so inept and uninspiring that even Democrats couldn't get enough enthusiasm going to get enough votes (Carter) and another broke his promise of "No New Taxes" and then went back on that promise which infuriated Republicans. Plus his New World Order speech was creepy.(George H.W. Bush).
So there you have it. Statistics show that Obama was re-elected due to incumbent advantage.
@Evermyrtle That's wonderful! That couple truly loved their children and were unselfish. Good for them!

Well, why wouldn't they make death threats against a grown man? They already make death threats and carry it out against unborn babies (and already born abortion survivors)!
This kind of scenario was brought up during and before the Roe v. Wade case. The pro-abortion crowd said that was ridiculous, they weren't advocating killing babies after birth or even babies after the first trimester. Well, here we are, folks, just as the anti-abortion crowd predicted.

@mclark4430 @DannaIrish God said, "Thou Shalt Not Murder". There is a difference. Otherwise, the eye for an eye, life for a life portions of the Bible would make no sense.
This kid needs to be removed from that school and put in a good private school or homeschooled. This is crazy.

Evermyrtle, Mitt Romney is Christian. He believes that Jesus is the savior. You may not like the sect of Christianity that he is, but that doesn't mean that he isn't Christian.
As far as Herman Cain, he was my first choice. He did not do what his accusers said he did. It was such an obvious lie to anyone that dug a little under the surface of the "story". The reason this was done was because the Obama campaign knew that Herman Cain could defeat Obama in the election.
@Bill Weston Repealing the 2nd Amendment or any of the Bill of Rights (the first 10 amendments) is not legitimate. Those are unalienable rights, as in the government can never take those away.
