Why, with that robotized force of nature under the president's belt, it could lead to the collapse of all liberty and freedom.

Not on your team... :0)

About a week ago Jeff posted something I intended to answer but was wacky busy at the time and didn't get a chance to do it.

The oath that U.S. military officers take is this:

"I (insert name), having been appointed a (insert rank) in the U.S. Army under the conditions indicated in this document, do accept such appointment and do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter, so help me God."

The reason I mention it now is I expect this to become very important in the next few weeks.  We now have three senior officers who have refused orders because they believe the CinC is not legally president because he hasn't produced a birth certificate.  They haven't been thrown into the brig for mutiny.  I myself believe he has one, but his not producing it is the gift that keeps on giving to his political opponents.
