Stupid is as stupid does, Joe. Any child born anywhere in the world who has at least one American citizen as a parent is, by law, a natural born American citizen. Three of my grandchildren were born in Europe. Their father, my son, was and is an American citizen. Their mother was, at the time, a Dutch citizen (she's since become an American citizen). I have in my possession, a U.S. Department of State Form FS-240 signed by the Consul in Amsterdam for each of these kids. It states on that form "A Consular Report of Birth is proof of United States Citizenship by law: 22 USC 2705". Wise up and get yourself educated, Joe.

Round them up and transport them to the sidewalks around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. Drop them off there and tell the they can apply for all the ""goodies" they are expecting just inside that fence around the big white house they can see. Give them some ladders to help them scale the fence. Then stand back and watch the fun.

One thing is absolutely certain - Geraldo Rivera, aka Gerry Rivers, is incapable of any kind of intelligent thought.

Should the "moderates" choose to speak out as you suggest, they risk their own safety. There is no such thing as a witness protection program or a whistleblower protection program for moderate Muslims who speak out against the fanatics. But there are fatwas that put such people at risk of their and their family's lives. Sad but true.

I'm seventy years old and was in my 27th year of military service in 1989. So I was very much alive and very much an adult. In fact, I played a minor role in the eventual tearing down of the Berlin wall. So you can stop wondering.

I agree. Gibberish is precisely the correct word to describe those lyrics. Perhaps the only way one could have made anything meaningful out of those lyrics was to be stoned on booze and drugs. Maybe Mike was having a flashback when he wrote this column? Some of the stuff the "counter-culture" types were toking and stoking in those days supposedly subjected users to some bizarre flashbacks.

Our son, who is now 50 years old, was diagnosed as "Hyperactive with Attention Deficit" when he was in the first grade (that was 1970). He went the full gamut of the various treatments for seven years (Dexedrine, Ritalin, therapy, etc.). When he was 13 we read a book by Dr. Benjamin Feingold, an Allergist, titled "Why Your Child is Hyperactive". Dr. Feingold believes many cases of hyperactivity are caused by allergy to artificial flavors and colors found then (and still today) in most processed foods. We meticulously controlled our son's diet, eliminating foods with artificial flavors and colors, and his "Hyperactivity with Attention Deficit" went away. The message here - find and treat the cause of the problem rather than just treat the symptoms.
And you don't think a Harry Reid run Senate WON'T ram through "Immigration Reform"? If you do, you arte clearly delusional.
No way do we want a Constitutional Convention. Such a convention could, and probably would, result in a total re-write of the entire Constitution. And who would do that re-writing? The delegates to a Constitutional Convention would be elected by the same people who elected Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. The same people who elected Hillary Clinton to the Senate, Ted Kennedy to the Senate, Chuck Schumer to the Senate, Harry Reid to the Senate, etc. You get my point? It is far too dangerous to hold a Constitutional Convention Mark Levine is completely wrong on this score.

Champaign is a city in Illinois. Champagne is an alcoholic sparkling wine adult beverage made from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France. Some vintners in other areas of the world inappropriately call their version of sparkling wine Champagne as well.
