Mudding the waters to clear things up. Records retention.

I really don't want to give Sheriff Joe and his Pus_eeee any bright ideas but this is after all the 'digital' age.
In terms of physical space and cost, electronic records, are far safer and more effective than warehousing paper.
It would be logical for a municipality to 'scan in' Birth and Death certificates and retain only the data.
Unlike paper digital images can easel be stored at multiple locations for the sake of disaster recovery.
Yes, this means that President Obamas official birth certificate may only exist as ones and zeros.
Naturally you need to control that sort of thing. Follows is just one approach to record retention.

Each business may have it's own polices. Each State may have it's own polices. The federal government has it's own polices.
If you back up you're PC YOU have a record retention policy!
So..... If not just to wine, carry on and spue hate; why all the fuss about Obamas birth certificate.
Someplace like this might quickly resolve the whole issue.

Although you might need to be a law enforsment offical to obtain records other than you're own.
A Sheriff might qualify for that.

I’m darn tired about hearing about Mr. Rick’s sex life or pious lack there of.

First off I hope this writing does not offend anyone who’s religious beliefs are stronger than mine. It has been my experience that those who act most pious, who loudly proclaim a love of their god in public places and who admonish people to fear their loving god are the most dispicapable creatures I have encountered. People who hide their own evil behind a mask of holiness.
Mister Rick is not a priest seeking to become the Bishop of New York. He is not a Cardinal hoping to see if it is he who is chosen to bring forth white smoke from the Vatican chimney. He is a Politian seeking the office of President of the United States. A Politian first and foremost. We need to part the smokescreen of social piety and evaluate Mr. Rick as what he is. A Politian.
Mr. Rick served as a United States Senator representing Pennsylvania from 1995 to 2007, let’s look at some of his accomplishments.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington names Mr. Rick one of the three “most corrupt” Senators in 2006.

Let’s see their are 100 senators and Mr. Rick comes in third in the most corrupt list. Nice Job! You have to wonder why Mr. Rick is against big government. It’s nice when you are a Senator to have friends like AccuWeather to lend you a helping hand here and there.

Guess that just goes to prove that Big government, I need hardly add, is an unholy lumbering giant that’s "overly intrusive and burdensome."
Then of course theirs that problem every home owner and parent faces of trying to figure out what School District they belong to.
From the Pittsburg TribLive.

Easy answer. You belong to whatever School district will foot the $100,000 bill to cover online charter school tuition for your children. Not theft of services or fraud at all.
Naturally, being a good Christian Mr. Rick stopped billing the school district and all was forgiven; even the moneys all ready contributed to the education of Mr. Ricks children.
Things however do not always work that way in these situations.
From NPR, Mother Jailed For School Fraud.

“And there are also those who believe, as the judge in this case said, that a strong deterrent to the practice of kids enrolling out of their neighborhoods is justified in these tough economic times”.
I guess Kelley Williams-Bolar didn’t have Mr. Ricks speaking ability or approached the situation with somewhat of a Bla... attitude.
Let’s move on to Personal Responsibility. When you say something in public you own it. You stand by it, or if you misspoke you still own up to it with an apology. I would have to give Mr. Rick a D- in this area.
In a script worthy of any Abbot and Costello routine we have Mr. Ricks now famous back track on food stamps and Black people. Or was it Bla….people. A very nice summation was given by TheRoot and can be found here.

Thow shall not bare true witness against thyself.
If there is one thing Mr. Rick prides himself on, of late, it is his desire to reduce the size of government. It goes without saying that making Washington, DC as inconsequential to your lives as possible will not only make government more efficient but will limit government’s intrusion into people’s every days lives. Appraise a man not by his words, but by his deeds.
Barring unnecessary wars, this brings me to what I consider one of the most disgraceful misuses
of power by elected officials in recent history, and Mr. Ricks roll in it.
Terri Schiavo.
First let me point out that Mr. Rick is at best a lawyer. Mr. Rick holds no medical degrees of any type or at least if he did he has not placed it in his Biography.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rick_Santorum
Gallantly however Mr. Rick chose to expend considerable ‘personal’ resources in this matter. Yes; I know you have heard this all before however it may be interesting to review in light of Mr. Ricks current political ambitions. Charles Pierce of Esquire has done an excellent job in that area. A good read in any event.

We could go on like this for quite some time however I’ll leave that to the reader. A quick Google search gives countless examples. Just avoid the first few search hits. Look past the clown hat to see the insiginifent ‘rooster’ spewing self rigouts and self serving hate, while hiding in the shadow of his own god.
