For the next 4 years not much will change. I thought something like this might occur during Bush's last term For the last two years I've been increasing my knowledge about gardening and permaculture. I've been planting dwarf fruit trees on my property which should start bearing this year.  B)

Until he's produced an original birth certificate, he hasn't produced one at all.  This presidency violates the constitution.  Doesn't matter too much anyway because he is just a puppet to the big banksters.
He most definitely is not a puppet to banksters, that is the republican schtik.  And it is really silly to claim that this presidency violates the constitution since it is known for a fact that he is an American born citizen.
Where is the official birth certificate then?  

He is a puppet.  He said he would get out of Iraq and now he pretty much "staying the course"

He is increasing the size of the deficit even more than Bush did, i.e. borrowing more money from the "Federal Reserve".  He also supported giving hundreds of billions to the banks. If that is not being a slave to the banks tell me what is.

You and 95% of the people out there have no clue how the Federal Reserve is destroying this country.
Here's a blog by a attorney <a href='http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2009/01/two-reasons-why-obama-will-neither.html' target='_blank'>http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2009/01/two-reas...ll-neither.html[/url]

You keep saying that Obama's lawyers say his birth certificate will cause a certain amount of embarrasment.

Can you provide some sourcing for that.  Such as an actual quote from his lawyer or court transcript.  Please don't post another blog or opinion piece.
He wouldn't  continue to obfuscate like he has unless it damaged him in some manner.

As far as I am concerned the whackos trying to claim there is an issue here are just playing into the hands of the liberals who love this country and what to make it better.  They make it all that more likely that people will shift to the reasonable intelligent liberals who don't run off on ridiculous conspiracy theories.  Before long they will be so fragmented and marginalized that they couldn't get elected if the democrats ran Paris Hilton as the candidate.
Absolutely coach, the people yelling about this don't realize that the Obama white house is more than happy to have these people out there.  You can tie them to the mainstream republicans and make them all look like wackos.

Do they realize that the same people filing these court cases are the 9/11 truthers, who think George Bush planted TNT in the World Trade Center?  At least the nutty wackos are more bipartisan than the republican congressman
Obama is playing “I’ve got a secret,â€

Politico had a interesting article about the birth certificate conspiracy.

to answer some of the conspiracy theorist questions.

Why won't Obama just release the COLB and make it go away?

The opportunity for the White House? It's one of which some conservatives are sharply aware — that the Birthers may discredit Obama's more mainstream enemies.

"At some level, they're not that bad to have around because it reminds people that under the mainstream conservative press there's this bubbling up of really irrational hatred for the guy," said former Clinton White House press secretary Jake Siewert



WHy would he spend, to quote BOG, Hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal defenses?

"This suit, like all of the others that have been filed challenging Obama's qualifications for the Presidency, is frivolous," California lawyer Fredric Woocher said in an email to POLITICO, adding that he is, in fact, working pro bono. "There is absolutely no truth to the stories about the untold millions supposedly being paid to us," he said

I think  most forum members can imagine the outcry that would have happened if a  Republican presidential candidate obfuscated their birth certificate eligibility like Obama has? The Republican  would have made it past the primary due to the intense MSM focus on their eligibility.Barry's attorneys have repeatedly pled that disclosing Obama's original BC would cause such a degree of embarrassment that it would cause him actual harm. This is the reason they state that it should remain hidden. Whenever someone hides something, they have something to hide.www.americanthinker.com/2008/12/obama_derangement_syndrome.html

  Your pro bono argument is nonsense,.No  rational person works for free
Pay will eventually be received. :blink:
You're missing the point BOG. The White House actually wants you guys to keep the issue alive.  It marginalizes the legitimate opposition when you tie them to extreme theories.

Show me a quote from someone within the Obama administration or campaign that sayd that they aren't showing the COLB becasue it is embaressing to them.  The article you linked doesn't have any sourcing, or anything new.  Its just an opinion piece rundown of different people's theories.  

Actually, as far a elegibilty the US Senate had to pass a resolution declaring McCain a natural born citizen because there was a question about his elegibilty.  It didn't seem to bother republican primary voters.

McCain didn't get lawyers to keep from providing his birth certificate for months like Obama.McCain was questioned and he quickly responded.
I'll repeat my statement," I think  most forum members can imagine the outcry that would have happened if a  Republican presidential candidate obfuscated their birth certificate eligibility like Obama has? The Republican  would have made it past the primary due to the intense MSM focus on their eligibility.Barry's attorneys have repeatedly pled that disclosing Obama's original BC would cause such a degree of embarrassment that it would cause him actual harm.

A burglar broke into a house, shining his flashlight around and looking  for valuables.
He had just picked up a CD player when a strange, disembodied voice echoed  

 from the
 dark saying: 'Jesus is watching you.'

 He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked off his flashlight and froze.
 When he
 heard nothing more he continued. Just as he pulled the stereo out he
 heard: 'Jesus
 is watching you.'

 Freaked out, he flashed his light around frantically. Finally, in the
 corner of the
 room his light beam came to rest on a parrot.

 'Did you say that?' he hissed at the parrot.

 'Yep,' the parrot confessed, 'I'm just trying to warn you
that he's
 watching you.'

 The burglar relaxed. 'Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?'

 'Moses,' replied the bird.

 'Moses?' the burglar laughed. 'What kind of people would name
a bird
Moses?'

 'The kind that would name a Rottweiler Jesus.'

An Ad placed on Craigslist..............

 

To the Guy Who Mugged Me Downtown (Downtown, Savannah )


Date: 2009-01-06, 3:43AM EST

I was the white guy with the black Burberry jacket that you demanded I hand over shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I hope you somehow come across this message. I'd like to apologize.

I didn't expect you to crap your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. Truth is, I was wearing the jacket for a reason that evening, and it wasn't that cold outside. You see, my girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber 1911 .45 ACP pistol for Christmas, and we had just picked up a shoulder holster for it that evening. Beautiful pistol, eh? It's a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head, isn't it?

I know it probably wasn't a great deal of fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge flopping about in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse since you also ended up leaving your shoes, cellphone, and wallet with me. I couldn't have you calling up any of your buddies to come help you try to mug us again. I took the liberty of calling your mother, or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, and explaining to her your situation. I also bought myself some gas on your card. I gave your shoes to one of the home less guys over by Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all of the cash in your wallet, then I threw the wallet itself in a dumpster.

I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell. They'll be on your bill in case you'd like to know which ones. Alltel recently shut down the line, and I've only had the phone for a little over a day now, so I don't know w hat's going on with that. I hope they haven't permanently cut off your service. I was about to make some threatening phone calls to the DA's office with it. Oh well.

So, about your pants. I know that I was a little rough on you when you did this whole attempted mugging thing, so I'd like to make it up to you. I'm sure you've already washed your pants, so I'd like to help you out. I'd like to reimburse you for the detergent you used on the pants. What brand did you use, and was it liquid or powder? I'd also like to apologize for not killing you and instead making you walk back home humiliated. I'm hoping that you'll reconsider your choice of path in life. Next time you might not be so lucky. If you read this message, email me and we'll do lunch and laundry. Peace!
- Alex

A younger brother sent me this in a email..................................    A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Taser for their anniversary submitted this tale:

    Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest.. The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Julie.
What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized taser. The effects of the taser were supposed to be short lived, with no long-term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety....??

    WAY TOO COOL!
     Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home. I loaded two AAA batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button.
     Nothing! I was disappointed.
     I learned, however, that if I pushed the button AND pressed it against a metal surface at the same time; I'd get the blue arc of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs.
   
     AWESOME!!!

    Unfortunately, I have yet to explain to Julie what that burn spot is on the face of her microwave.

    Okay, so I was home alone with this new toy, thinking to myself that it couldn't be all that bad with only two triple-A batteries, right?
     There I sat in my recliner, my cat Gracie looking on intently (trusting little soul) while I was reading the directions and thinking that I really needed to try this thing out on a flesh & blood moving target.
       I must admit I thought about zapping Gracie (for a fraction of a second) and thought better of it. She is such a sweet cat.
     But, if I was going to give this thing to my wife to protect herself against a mugger, I did want some assurance that it would work as advertised.

    Am I wrong?
    So, there I sat in a pair of shorts and a tank top with my reading glasses perched delicately on the bridge of my nose, directions in one hand, and taser in another.

    The directions said that a one-second burst would shock and disorient your assailant; a two-second burst was supposed to cause muscle spasms and a major loss of bodily control; a three-second burst would purportedly make your assailant flop on the ground like a fish out of water. Any burst longer than three seconds would be wasting the batteries.
     All the while I'm looking at this little device measuring about 5' long, less than 3/4 inch in circumference; pretty cute really and (loaded with two itsy, bitsy triple-A batteries) thinking to myself, 'no possible way!'

    What happened next is almost beyond description, but I'll do my best...?

    I'm sitting there alone, Gracie looking on with her head cocked to one side as to say, 'don't do it dipshit,' reasoning that a one second burst from such a tiny little ole thing couldn't hurt all that bad.
     I decided to give myself a one second burst just for heck of it. I touched the prongs to my naked thigh, pushed the button, and . ..
HOLY MOTHER OF GOD . . . WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION . .. . WHAT THE HEck!!!
     I'm pretty sure Jessie Ventura ran in through the side door, picked me up in the recliner, then body slammed us both on the carpet, over and over and over again.
     I vaguely recall waking up on my side in the fetal position, with tears in my eyes, body soaking wet, both nipples on fire, testicles nowhere to be found, with my left arm tucked under my body in the oddest position, and tingling in my legs?
     The cat was making meowing sounds I had never heard before, clinging to a picture frame hanging above the fireplace, obviously in an attempt to avoid getting slammed by my body flopping all over the living room.
     Note: If you ever feel compelled to 'mug' yourself with a taser, one note of caution: there is no such thing as a one second burst when you zap yourself!

    You will not let go of that thing until it is dislodged from your hand by a violent thrashing about on the floor. A three second burst would be considered conservative?


    SON-OF-A-Gun, THAT HURT LIKE HEck!!!

    A minute or so later (I can't be sure, as time was a relative thing at that point), I collected my wits (what little I had left), sat up and surveyed the landscape.
     My bent reading glasses were on the mantel of the fireplace.  The recliner was upside down and about 8 feet or so from where it originally was.  My triceps, right thigh and both nipples were still twitching.
     My face felt like it had been shot up with Novocain, and my bottom lip weighed 88 lbs. I had no control over the drooling.
     Apparently I shit myself, but was too numb to know for sure and my sense of smell was gone. I saw a faint smoke cloud above my head which I believe came from my hair.
     I'm still looking for my nuts and I'm offering a significant reward for their safe return!!
     P. S. My wife loved the gift, and now regularly threatens me with it!

     'If you think Education is difficult, try being stupid.'  B)
