There are a number of “Stop Obama” web sites out there with people filing lawsuits and appeals left and right, digging into public records, reading arcane legal documents, pestering the Supreme Court and nice little old ladies, writing Congress, issuing demands and deadlines and in general keeping quite busy.
Nothing any of these people are doing has a snowball’s chance in hell of stopping the inauguration of Barack Obama on January 20.
But no, they say “my lawsuit has failed but the next one is better” or “this document shows nothing but the next one has the goods” or “this document examiner is a fraud, but the next one is the real deal. It is blatant psychological manipulation of the most unethical kind.
My advice? Shut down the computer. Go outside and get some fresh air. Walk the dog; play some golf; be with the family; go down to the local playground and watch the children play.
A number of the people running these web sites are lawyers and they should know better. I hope the victims learn something about naive trust in their disappointment come January 20. I also hope they haven’t lost too much money.
