Scott, who plays outfield for the Baltimore Orioles, made the revelation yesterday to Yahoo! Sports reporter David Brown.
“He was not born here,” Scott said during a discussion that turned political. “That’s my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, ‘See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.’ The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn’t answer anything. And why? Because he’s hiding something.”
The first priority for addressing the budget deficit has to be getting the economy growing again at a rapid rate." The tax deal, he said, "offers the best prospect that was available for achieving the kind of escape velocity that we've been seeking for the past two years.
"We all know that the middle-class tax cuts were being held hostage to the high-end tax cuts. It's tempting to not negotiate with ‘hostage takers,' unless the hostage gets harmed. In this case the hostage was the American people."
Really? That's the best we can get from the President of the United States? Hostage-takers seize people against their will, threatening to kill them if their demands aren't met. The president's word-choice is absurd. Moreover, his "American people" - the one's being held hostage - excludes citizens who oppose his philosophy. If you believe that workers can spend their money better than a bureaucrat, you don't factor. Obama's America is a parochial America defined by his hero. Obama himself.
What in the hell is wrong with the management people running that apartment complex that it won't allow residents to decorate for the holidays? Talk about a bunch of scrooges. I have to agree with the resident the Daily Times interviewed for their story about it that it really is keeping them from celebrating their religion.
Almost every other Apartment complex that I have seen allows the decorations so it makes zero sense for them to act like such children over decorations. I am sure I could drive up to Delmar and find other things with their property they should be worrying about right guys?
