Thumbs-up to Angeli Wright for doing an excellent story about Alzheimer's and my mother. Everyone agrees it was an awesome story told in an awesome way. Thank you, Angeli, for capturing what I didn't know at the time was the last months of my mother's life.

Thumbs-down to William, Sue, and Jefro (speak outs), who would not know the constitutional true meaning of natural born citizen if it smacked them in the head. Law of Nations mentioned in Article I, Section 8, Clause 10 of the U.S. Constitution defines what a natural born citizen is: A natural born citizen is a citizen born in the country of parents who are citizens. The U.S. Supreme Court, not once, four times ruled on this issue. Its decision based on the U.S. Constitution and Law of Nations says, a natural born citizen is a citizen born on U.S. soil of parents who are both U.S citizens.
