political realities

Barney shipped this along today:

You, who worry about democrats versus republicans--relax, here is the real problem:

True Story!!!!!!
In a Purdue University classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States . It was pretty simple the candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age.

However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.

The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating:

"What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?"



  1. Wonder if the teacher defined terms at the beginning of the class or unit.
    One would think that the term "natural born citizen" would have been defined ahead of time, may be even written down somewhere....

  2. .....only in the US of A would the above question need to be asked....what does that say?
