Man Demands State Verify Birth Records or Remove Obama From Ballots... Second Lawsuit Challenges Obama's Citizenship
In a second lawsuit challenging Barack Obama's "natural born" citizenship, a Washington resident is demanding officials review original or certified birth documents for the Democratic Party presidential candidate. Steven Marquis of Fall City, Wash., filed suit Oct. 9 in Washington State Superior Court, calling for Secretary of State Sam Reed to determine whether Obama is a citizen before Election Day.
Despite wall-to-wall media coverage of the financial crisis rocking the U.S. and, increasingly, other financial systems around the world, a crisis with a larger scope is brewing with little attention. Many people around the globe are feeling the burden of higher food and energy prices, found a new international poll of 26 countries released ahead of World Food Day Thursday.
The American housing market, where the global economic crisis began, is far from hitting bottom. Home prices across much of the country are likely to fall through late 2009, economists say, and in some markets the trend could last even longer depending on the severity of the anticipated recession. In hard-hit areas like California, Florida and Arizona, the grim calculus is the same: More and more homes are going up for sale, but fewer and fewer people are willing or able to buy them.

The court case of Philip J Berg against Barack Obama to prove that he is an American citizen, prior to his possible assumption of the presidency, is still pending. According to latest reports I can find, Obama has still not definitively proven himself an American citizen. ~ George Paxinos
This year marks the forty fourth anniversary of the making of legend John McCain. Imprisonment in the “Hanoi Hilton” we’re told, defined his life. Incensed enemy jailors tortured his shattered body, and the indelible experience helped secure the prisoner of war’s future status as political icon.

If you are brought to the hospital with a stroke or heart attack, your geographic location could mean the difference between life and death. A study released today by hospital rating organization HealthGrades shows that people in the nation's highest-ranked hospitals (most of which are in the midwest) are 70% less likely to die than those in the lowest-ranked (most of which are in the south). The group looked at survival rates for 17 different problems or procedures, including stroke, heart attack, sepsis, and pneumonia.
Vaccine talk is riddled with shoddy science, emotional arguments, convoluted explanations and all out quackery. Very little common sense shines its way through the murky vaccine debate. Rather than question the safety and efficacy of vaccines, most physicians and parents blindly “immunize” children. Rarely do they ask the lifesaving question of, “Will a vaccine protect my child?” As a pharmaceutical chemist and parent, I researched that question six years ago. The answer was an astounding no.
Virginia voters won't be allowed to wear clothing featuring John McCain or Barack Obama when they head to the polls on Nov. 4. The State Board of Elections on Tuesday voted to ban clothing and hats as well as buttons and other paraphernalia that directly advocate the election or defeat of a specific candidate or issue.
In the crucial final weeks of the campaign John McCain is mostly doing only one event a day. This is the man of whom his primary care physician at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, said to journalists in a conference call last May 23: “At the present time, Sen. McCain enjoys excellent health and displays extraordinary energy.” He looked tired and sick in the second debate in Nashville.

PoW Chief Prison Guard Says 'McCain Was NOT TORTURED During Captivity in North Vietnam' as He Continues to Claim
The Republican US presidential candidate John McCain was not tortured during his captivity in North Vietnam, the chief prison guard of the jail in which he was held has claimed. In an interview with the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, Nguyen Tien Tran acknowledged that conditions in the prison were "tough, though not inhuman". But, he added: "We never tortured McCain. On the contrary, we saved his life, curing him with extremely valuable medicines that at times were not available to our own wounded."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Congress must consider an economic recovery program and has ordered hearings to determine the size and provisions that should be included in the plan.
Even as the U.S. confronts two long wars, neither Sen. John McCain nor Sen. Barack Obama believes the country should take the politically perilous step of reviving the military draft.
Trillions in stock market value — gone. Trillions in retirement savings — gone. A huge chunk of the money you paid for your house, the money you're saving for college, the money your boss needs to make payroll — gone, gone, gone.
Twelve bank failures in 2008, perhaps more by the time you read this. What's Next? Cancelled elections? I hope you like your soup thin and served up by the Salvation Army.
Our constitutional right to liberty is systematically being attacked by government agencies flanked by anti-competitive forces in the food industry. Nowhere, is this more obvious than on the raw milk issue. California Gov. Arnold Swartzenegger recently vetoed SB 201, a bill to preserve consumers rights to access farm fresh milk, while guaranteeing its safety.
While the nation remains fixated on the nearly $1 trillion Congress gave to criminal bankers and investment firms on Wall Street, the House and Senate quietly passed the largest military spending legislation to date loaded with pork and gifts for the military-industrial complex.
Palin has taken to smearing Obama. But it's her own record that continues to yield alarming information, undermining her skills and credibility.
