The comments are killing me. Someone called Obama a "Keynesian child molesting bankster" and "Mombasa Miracle Man".

:rofl:

The guy's sentences don't even make sense. He's just regurgitating words he heard from Limbaugh and the like, and piecing them together like the manatee's making an episode of family guy :rofl:

Well they have to go with something since "hang the n*r" won't fly anymore. Got to find a way to keep those minorities down.
At a dinner party last weekend this rather charismatic dude had an audience while bitching about the government. He kept the conversation interesting enough that he had some people listening. Things fell apart when he mentioned he got a speeding ticket and the only reason was that the cop was a "Ni", he got half way through it and caught himself. Everybody knew what he was going to say and just walked away.

The f*cking country is going down the toilet, and these people are very concerned the president is black. If I needed any more proof that fundamentalists were ignorant, racist, backwoods tards, that would do it.

Of course the white guy was fine. He lied us into a pointless war, make our country look downright evil and ran the economy into the ground, but he was white and he was killing brown people, and that's all that mattered.

Here in the right wing "christian" hell hole that I live in. Lots of people still seriously discuss this issue. :tinfoil: My experience is that you just can't talk to people like this. No amount of proof will ever convince them. You just become, in their eye's hopelessly stupid or "part of the conspiracy". These are the same people still hanging on to fake moon landings, 9/11 conspiracies, secret world governments, silent black helicopters, and big foot.



also this probably belongs in P&WN.

US Army base in Panama=US soil.
Nope. It was the canal zone, and technically it was a US territory at the time. Territories are kind of a gray area, and to the best of my knowledge they are essentially treated on a case by case basic.

More importantly, from the state department:

Despite widespread popular belief, U.S. military installations abroad and U.S. diplomatic or consular facilities are not part of the United States within the meaning of the 14th Amendment. A child born on the premises of such a facility is not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States and does not acquire U.S. citizenship by reason of birth.
However, if one parent is a citizen, the child is still a citizen. But a child born to non-citizens on a military base in another country is NOT a US citizen. Title 8, Section 1403 of the United States Code grants citizenship to those born in the Canal Zone with at least one parent who is a United States citizen, so as far as US citizenship goes it was treated like a foreign country.

Puerto Rico is a US territory, but it is not incorporated. People born there are granted US citizenship, but they have to travel to a US state in order to vote at the federal level of the US Gov't. Even though they are US citizens, they have essentially no true representation in the US gov't (no representation in the Senate, and one non-voting member of the House). I am unsure that someone from PR, who has US citizenship, would be eligible as a candidate for US Presidency (not sure if the 14 years of living in the US would supersede this or not - legal monkies?).

right wingers believe in 9/11 conspiracies?

don't you have them confused with liberals?
No. Right Wingers = nut jobs.

Although I guess technically 9/11 was a conspiracy. A whole bunch of crazy Muslim dudes getting together and planing to fly planes into buildings is a conspiracy. Just not the conspiracy theory I was referring too.

The birther movement has produced images of what is supposedly Obama's Kenyan birth certificate. Apparently its got more holes in than swiss cheese, so to speak. And you know its bad if Karl Rove has already tweeted that its "likely a forgery". :rofl:

At least this forgery was entertaining:

Duh, Austin
I have to agree that these guys are the worst thing that could happen to the GOP. And I hope they continue.

There has been enough pieces of evidence, including a birth cirtificate, that have been produced (including a birth announcement from a newspaper in hawaii), yet they ignore all of that. They will not ever believe it.

There are probably just as many on the left that believed that bush was never technically president because of how the whole thing went down in 2000, but, at the end of the day a.) they accepted the truth and b.) the democrats tamped down that talk instead of fueling it.

Let the GOP keep pushing the idea. Then one day they will wake up, find it is 2012, and the only message they will have out there is "where is the birth certificate." Priceless.

I've never been steered wrong by the assumption that an average American is about as intelligent as the squid family on "Squidbillies"...

One too many hits to the head Chuck?

In a column Tuesday, actor and conservative political figure Chuck Norris argued that President Obama should release his birth certificate. Norris said that he finds it "a bit of a groundless stretch" to believe the president is not from Hawaii. Yet, he tells Obama, "Refusing to post your original birth certificate is an unwise political and leadership decision that is enabling the "birther" controversy." And he adds that the president's alleged reluctance suggests that he does have something to hide -- even if he was born in the U.S.
