    I find it ironic that even the president of the United States has problems with proving his citizenship after the Patriot act - national REAL ID and post -911.

    did you know that you need a photo ID to get a Photo ID, that it is easier for a person from a different country to get a social security card with a birth certificate than a US citizen with a social security number to geta duplicate card - that a seal offical birth certificate is NO GOOD?

    I had a friend - a homeless friend with no ID try to get a SS card replacement (needed for a photo ID) and they would NOT accept a CERTIFIED birth certificate????

    It's easier to get a passport than a state ID! I have a different friend who needs to get a PASSPORT for food stamps - they woun't accept his certified birth certificate!

    Talk about a "man without a county!"

    This business about how a birth certificate doesn't prove citizenship is akin to being a persona non grata in the USSR.

    There's a lot of noise about President Obama's birth certificate.  This is yet another ploy by his opponents to distract us from the real issues.  If Donald Trump had anything to offer this country he would be focusing on what he can do to help fix all the problems we face.  Instead he toots his own horn about how he is the only one who could get the birth certificate released.   President Obama released his birth certificate to try to stop the nonsense and get people re-focused on what's important.  Unfortunately, now we have to listen to Trump spouting off about wanting Obama's academic records.  Where will it stop?  If we get his college transcript will Trump keep asking for more until we need his graduation certificate from kindergarten?  If Trump has nothing intelligent to offer he needs to go play in the sandbox with the rest of the kids and get out of the way of progress.

    Very well said Coach Julie... couldn't agree with you more. It's disheartening and depressing to think that this is what American politics has come down to.
