The short - but eventful - life of Ike - The Big Picture - Boston.com

I am from MS and know what these storms can do. Thankfully the loss of life is a lot lower with 'Ike' than from 'Katrina' and other storms. These amazing pictures are a testament as to what is GOING to happen to the property along the gulf when a major hurricane comes ashore. I applaud the people that had the good sense to get out when the evacuation order was given, and can only pray for those who wished to challenge the 'Wrath of GOD'

There are 28 pictures avaliable and may be viewed at The Big Picture-Boston.com

In its brief lifespan of only 13 days, Hurricane Ike wreaked great deal of havoc. Affecting several countries including Cuba, Haiti, and the United States, Ike is blamed for approximately 114 deaths (74 in Haiti alone), and damages that are still being tallied, with estimates topping $10 billion. Many shoreline communities of Galveston, Texas were wiped from the map by the winds, storm surge and the walls of debris pushed along by Ike - though Galveston was spared the level of disaster it suffered in 1900.

America's Right: Eligibility Goes Beyond Citizenship

America's Right: Eligibility Goes Beyond Citizenship

Barack Obama is not a legal U.S. natural-born citizen

The Constitution is the supreme law in the United States . No judge or other governmental body, not even the Supreme Court, may override it in any circumstance!

We know that Obama refuses to release his birth certificate, and for some reason it is not on file in Hawaii , so this is interesting. Is Obama Legally Eligible to Serve as President?

Here's something for you to ponder. This came from a USNA alumnus and it'll be interesting to see how the media handles this.

Barack Obama is not a legal U.S. natural-born citizen, according to the law on the books at the time of his birth, which falls between December 24, 1952, to November 13, 1986. Federal Law states that the office of President requires a person be a natural-born citizen, if the child was not born to two U.S. citizen parents. This is what exempts John McCain, though he was born in the US Panama Canal Zone .

US Law very clearly states: '. . . if only one parent is a U.S. Citizen at the time of one's birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for a minimum of ten years, five of which must be after the age of 16. Barack Obama's father was not a U.S. Citizen. Obama's mother was only 18 when Obama was born. This means even though she had been a U.S. Citizen for 10 years, (or citizen of Hawaii being a territory), his mother fails the test for at-least-5-years-prior-to Barack Obama's birth, but-after-age-16. In essence, Mother alone is not old enough to qualify her son for automatic U.S. Citizenship. At most, 2 years elapsed from his mother turning 16 to the time of Barack Obama's birth when she was 18. His mother would have needed to have been 16 + 5 = 21 years old at the time of Barack Obama's birth for him to be a natural-born citizen.

The Constitution clearly declares: Naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office of President. Though Barack Obama was sent back to Hawaii at age 10, any other information does not matter because his mother is the one who must fulfill the requirement to be a U.S. Citzen for 10 years prior to his birth on August 4, 1961, with 5 of those years being after age 16.

Further, Obama may have had to have remained in the USA for some time frame to protect any citizenship he might have had, rather than living in Indonesia . This is very clear cut and a glaring violation of U.S. Election law. I think that Governor Schwarzenegger of California would be very interested in discovering if Obama is allowed to be elected Presidentwithout being a natural-born U.S. Citizen, since this would set a precedent.
