Orly Taitz "birther" loses in court, again

It looks like Orly Taitz (I’m not sure how you pronounce her last name) who claimed to have found Barack Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate has had her 15 minutes of fame. The judge has thrown her latest lawsuit out of court because it is a piece of crap. Well, the judge said it a little differently

As explained previously, Plaintiff has demonstrated no likelihood of success on the merits. Her claims are based on sheer conjecture and speculation. She alleges no factual basis for her “hunch” or “feeling” or subjective belief that the President was not born in the United States. Moreover, she cites no legal authority supporting her bold contention that the alleged “cloud” over the President’s birthplace amounts to a violation of her individual constitutional rights.

The judge has clearly lost his patience with Ms. Taitz. The judge wrote “counsel for the Plantiff is ordered to show cause why the Court should not impose a monetary penalty of $10,000 upon Plaintiff’s counsel for her misconduct.”

Obama answers the critics, again

I’m trying to get the whole video of Barack Obama’s speech. As soon as I find a good copy, I’ll post it. I have found a bad YouTube copy.

Below, Obama again focuses attention on what we need in this country.

Update: As I listen to more of Obama’s speech (not just the short clips available on CNN or MSNBC) I began to smile– again. Obama explains why he joined the church, not just any church but that church. He explains why he loves Jeremiah Wright both as a person and as a minister. Again, he does a great job explaining what others can’t or won’t explain. He does a GREAT job at framing the debate.

Oil Prices, please hit me again, harder

It can not be a coincidence that Oil companies are raking in profits by the tanker and both George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are oil men. So, as prices at the pump surge, what are we to do? Well, we can keep handing our paychecks to the oil companies who have made over 1/2 a trillion dollars in profit since 2001 (a half a TRILLION), we can pressure our congressmen to fight back. The oil tax breaks that are killing our economy need to be rescinded. Secondly, we have to look push for renewable energy. We need more legislation like HR. 5351. Finally, we need to get over the I’m not sure that this or that is clean enough. We need to get started. We can sort out what is working and what isn’t once we pass GO!


From AP:

Gas prices jumped Friday to their highest level since June, a possible preview of what many analysts believe will be a record spike in pump prices this spring.

But the current price surge could be short-lived. While gasoline has risen sharply in recent days in response to oil’s dramatic climb to a new record above $101 a barrel, gas supplies have quietly grown to their highest level in 14 years.  (more…)
