The economy is terrible. Jobs are nowhere to be found. Wall Street bonuses are through the roof. But mainstream business journalism is still praising the con-men who created this mess, yet attacking anybody who takes real solutions—like government spending to create jobs—seriously.

Orly Taitz is loosing her marbles. Okay, we knew that already, but now the dentist/lawyer/Birther-diva is really going bonkers/bughouse looney because she’s been immortalized by pancake portraitist Dan Lacey who’s painted numerous politicians — including the Red (State) Queen of (Mad) Tea Parties Sarah Palin — with pancakes. You’d think Orly would be thrilled to [...]

Everyone knows the analogy of “like a dog with a bone”. It is a short hand comparison of someone who will not let go of an issue or action regardless of other consequences. This is a great comparison to everyone’s favorite “Birther” Dr. Orly Taitz, esquire. She is the dentist and lawyer who has been at the center of many of the law suits trying to force the president to produce a birth certificate that is acceptable to the Far Out Right.
“Originally posted at Squarestate.net”
Dr Taitz, (oh hell, lets call someone that wacky by their first name, shall we?), Orly has gotten herself into some really fairly serious trouble. It all started when she filed suit on behalf of a Major who did not want to follow the orders of his Commander-In-Chief and deploy to Afghanistan. The argument was that since President Obama was not born in the United States, he could not issue legal orders.
This suit fell apart when the Majors commander in Afghanistan decided that he did not need the headache of someone who was a nutty as this major in a war zone and let him stay home. Judge Clay Land, a George W. Bush appointee, was a little taken back when Orly insisted that the case should go on, even though the Major got what he wanted and was not forced to obey an order that he feared was illegal.
Judge Land told our pal Orly that this was verging on the frivolous and she should not waste any courts time with this kind of thing. Orly is not one to take a strong hint, as she filed another case on behalf of Capt. Rhodes for the same kind of “illegal order” argument. Since Capt. Rhodes was also going to deploy and Orly had filed for an emergency stay, Judge Land went out of his way to hold the hearing and to allow Orly to act as an attorney in the hearing.
At the hearing Orly not only did not answer the Judge in regards to the case. From Judge Land’s order fining Orly $20,000:
Instead of arguing pertinent legal authority supporting her position, counsel reverted to “press conference mode,” repeating political “talking points” that did not answer the Court’s questions or address the Court’s concerns. Specifically, counsel was unable to explain why this Court should not abstain from deciding this case based upon well-established precedent, and she was unable to articulate clearly how the alleged “cloud” on the President’s place of birth amounted to a violation of her client’s individual constitutional rights. Rather than address these two important questions, counsel retreated to her political rhetoric. When the Court admonished her for not addressing the legal issues presented by her Complaint, counsel accused the Court of unfairly badgering her and implored the Court to ask Defendants’ counsel questions instead of her.

This is kind of a companion piece to my post this morning. This morning I was talking about how it is a very American thing to bull through, even when the odds are stacked against you. This is can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what it is you are trying to achieve. As a prime example, we have Orly Taitz.
You might remember Ms. Taitz, she is the Russian immigrant from Israel. She is a dentist and a lawyer, given all three of those factors you can see how she might be considered a stereotypical American. She is also a bat-crap crazy Birther.
Ms. Taitz, after being slapped around pretty good for filing frivolous law suits on behalf of service members on the theory that the President could not order them to do anything since he is not a citizen (her delusion, not mine) in Georgia has moved on. Not that she has paid the $20,000 fine (a huge fine from any judge) or admitted that she was wrong. No, not our Orly!
She has moved on to a different court. TMP is reporting that she has now filed suit in DC District Court, Dr. Orly Taitz v Barack Hussein Obama. That’s right boys and girls, she is going directly at the President, insisting that he show his birth certificate to prove his eligibility to serve. From the TMP story:
It also alleges that Attorney General Eric Holder has ignored her allegations and calls to the Justice Department — a “game of hide and seek,” she says, that’s “infantile at best and treasonous at worst.”

A judge ordered the Justice Department to start collection procedures on the Queen of the Birthers, Orly Taitz today. She is going to resist. This makes the future of this bat crap crazy woman pretty clear.
