Supreme Clarence Thomas to review Obamas citizenship

The US Supreme Court has accepted the Philip Berg challenge to Barack Obama’s citizenship for conference on December 5th.

A conference is a meeting held before a supreme to review the validity of moving the complaint forward towards a challenge before the court.
It appears the case was first submitted to Justice Souter, who denied the request.

When resubmitted to Justice Thomas, one of the Justices who helped decide the 2000 election, the petition was accepted.

The hearing will be on December 5th.
This challenge will not go anywhere, but it shows you how crazy Thomas is.

Here's some of his other views from Wikipedia.
Racial issues
Thomas believes that the Constitution forbids any consideration of race. He believes the Equal Protection Clause disallows any kind of race-based affirmative action or preferential treatment. He has said directly that any use of race in college or law school admissions is always violative of the Constitution.

Thomas has advocated the reversal of Roe v. Wade. He joined the dissenting opinion of Justice Antonin Scalia in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which said "... the longstanding traditions of American society have permitted abortion to be legally proscribed.

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
