New Miss Tickly Analysis: Short-form Certification of Live Birth: THE AUDACITY OF SEAL: Dreams from a Mother
Do you see a ‘raised’ seal in this photo?
I’m gonna get myself connected.
I ain’t gonna go blind
to the light which is reflected.
I see through you, I see through you.
Your dirty tricks, you make me sick.
Recently, I closed my blog out-of-the-blue and without a clear stated reason. However, I did have a compelling reason for my decision to close shop, and it fit the dramatic blog entry I left announcing that decision. The truth is, I emailed Loretta Fuddy, Acting Director for the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) earlier the same day I announced that I was closing my blog; and I felt (and still feel) that the content of that email led to the event which prompted me and my husband to have a conversation about the future of this blog and my ‘hobby.’ In that email to Ms. Fuddy, I demonstrated that the document alleged to have been President Obama’s ‘Certification of Live Birth’ (COLB), which was photographed by Factcheck.org, in 2008, was not a legally certified copy of a vital record issued by the Hawaii Department of Health. I also pointed out to Ms. Fuddy that there was really no arguing this fact, and no way to effectively bury the kind of proof I had accumulated. I also bluntly suggested she was foolish for having gotten involved in this controversy. And, I asked one remaining question of Ms. Fuddy, but I didn’t honestly expect her to answer it – and it didn’t matter to me if she did.
