Only native-born Americans may use their passports to prove their citizenship when enlisting in the Army National Guard. If you are a naturalized or foreign-born American, your shiny, blue U.S. passport won't mean squat to the Guard. This makes no sense. It's also not the rule for the regular Army. What's going on over at the Guard?
Isn't it strange that the GOP, the political party that has heretofore consistently and vociferously opposed frivolous lawsuits, spurious malpractice claims and the trail lawyers' lobby, has now decided to spend taxpayer money to hire trial lawyers to bring what is essentially a frivolous malpractice lawsuit against President Obama?
Boehner has gone from confidently touting his and his fellow House Republicans' upcoming leadership on the issue of immigration, to now doing nothing more than groveling for Obama to solve the problem using his executive authority -- which is an ironic enough stance for a Republican to take, these days.
