    13 State parks are scheduled to close this year in Arizona, due to no funding to pay for their maintainence or park personnel.
    2 were closed today.
    39 Republicans in the State are demanding that Obama show a verifiable birth certificate, "IF" he intends to run for election again.....
    And, they are demanding that ANY politician, running for ANY office, that is voted on in the state of Arizona, show a verifiable birth certificate and making it a state law to do so.
    Now, it's getting interesting!

    So what happens to the protected lands if the parks close?

    Interesting that they're willing to let it slide (this time) and only enforce the new law if he runs again.

    FYI: Several United States District Courts have ruled that private citizens do not have standing to challenge the eligibility of candidates to appear on a presidential election ballot.<sup id="cite_ref-standing_25-0" class="reference"></sup> Alternatively, there is a statutory method by which the eligibility of the President-elect to take office may be challenged in Congress.

    Side note: On July 27, 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 593, commemorating the 50th anniversary of Hawaii's statehood, including the text, "Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961."

    Honestly, I have been in such a fog the past few months around here, that nothing seems to make any sense to me anymore!
    Maybe I'm just "suffering" from "prepper burn-out"?
