    We should definitely assume that President Obama personally ordered that this guy go to prison for the crime of checking the wrong box on a form. That is definitely the reasonable thing to do.

    I don't have a dog in this fight, but if the man is a legal citizen his Congressman is the person to carry the water and deal with the Federal bureaucracy, not the President. It's called 'Constituency Services', and is a Congressman's primary job, contrary to the beliefs of many of them that their job is to permanently campaign for re-election

    Either you fear your government or you government fears you. If the government doesn't fear the People it's game, set, match.

    Obama didn't put this man in jail, but he might intercede. Perhaps he already has and sanity is soon to prevail. We can only hope.

    Soon prevail what?

    There's more to this than his checking of the box - there's a papertrail of citizenship that just begins out of nowhere - leading to the notion that's he's not a legal citizen. . . and has lied about those issues - far worse than a box-error.

    "Obama didn't put this man in jail, but he might intercede. Perhaps he already has and sanity is soon to prevail. We can only hope."

    In a system that was designed to serve some 4 million people, of which only a few could vote anyway, it's more than a just a little simple-minded to think the President should be personally involved in every perceived incident, and this is also true of Congressmen; in order for that to happen, you need vast reforms to reflect modern realities, but of course nobody wants that, so get used to rampant Kafkaesque anecdotes being a part of 'normal' life.

    There was a paperwork snafu somewhere in some bureaucracy and it's Obama's fault somehow?

    Obama really must have godlike powers to be able to control all that.

    Give it a rest. Obama's just this guy, you know.
    He really doesn't have as much power and ability to manipulate and control events as some project on to him.
    I may be wrong.

    In Houston, just recently, a man robbed a bank of one dollar, then waited for the police to arrest him. Why? Because he has severe medical problems, couldn't afford to treat those problems, and didn't have insurance. Figured if he got a few years in prison, he would get a little health care.

    Was it in Houston? Another site had a story exactly like that only it was supposedly in Wisconsin. In any case, it's a sad one indeed, if true, and will probably become more common as the Depression deepens.

    it was a reference that someone is jailed for ****ign up a form... but not for entering the country illegally. Remember, according to the head of the DNC, that's not illegal.
