Mitt Romney is going to bring back prohibition and create an embargo with Columbia to rid the US of all of it's caffeine! This is all a secret Mormon plot!

You need to spend at least fourty solid hours staring at pictures of the mass graves at Deschau, while repeating to yourself over and over again, "This is derp. This is derp. This is derp."

Because there has always been that much derp, goddamnit, and there always will be, and it will always win. All we can do is slow its rate of progress, and produce occasional islands against it - and that's only at the cost of our sanity, our livelihoods, and our lives.

Oh, wait - too late for that. Been too late since the 60's.

Harry Freakstorm: John McCain was born in Panama. Not even a U S territory. Yet no one decried him his presidential run.

Just sayin'


A couple of problems with your statement:

1- There was in fact some debate amongst the professional panty-wetting class in this country about McCain's status during the 2000 primary season. Said debate was shut down by two important facts:

A) McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone, which- at that time- was considered US territory under US law. Being born in US territory makes him subject to the "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside" bit in the 14th Amendment.

B) McCain's parents were both US citizens. By this alone, he qualifies as "natural born" under US law.

2- During the 2008 campaign, the fact that McCain is not "blah" (although "meh" and "ugh" are probably appropriate) was reason enough for the republican "base" to avoid discussing his pedigree.

stonicus: Yes, Obama is a secret muslim out to destroy America... yet is waiting until the last few months of his first term to start doing these things? Or waiting for a second term, which may not happen? Why didn't he do all these evil things in the first 3 years? What's he waiting for?


See? That's just how the Inscrutable Muslin works! He keeps you guessing, second-guessing, doubting yourself, questioning what you believe, then you wonder if you can trust your Red, White, & Blue compatriots who fought and bled beside you in the Wars, then you're wondering if what they taught you in school was real or just something cooked up by the Marxists, then you're wondering if George Washington didn't really compose the Pledge of Allegiance and compel Alexander Hamilton to add "under God", at the point of a gun because he was a Godly Christian Man, and then you're questioning your pastor's touch, then you start looking for hidden meaning in Kenny Chesney songs, and then the your Ford breaks down - how'd THAT happen? - and before you know it, you're wearing a burqua and sucking on some muscled Nubian bodyguard's cawk in the back of a Saudi diplomat's limousine and thinking it's what you're supposed to do, then you're giving up launch codes and the keys to your bass boat and you're sworn off liquor and pork chops while eating lentil soup and smoking clove cigarettes, teaching your son to read the Koran and whipping your wife with a ox tail because she looks you in the eye and you're voting for Obama and begging him to bless your home with His radiant love and rolling paint cans full of burning shiat out in front of the Fourth of July Parade and wiping your ass with the American Flag.

That's how it happens.

readymix: hdhale: My birth required no announcement in the paper...I nearly killed my mom. There are medical records to prove it.

One would think that someone by now would have coughed up the medical records for Barry's mom at some point...however sketchy...and they would prove that Barry was indeed born in Hawaii unless of course his mom has the ability to teleport after giving birth from Kenya or wherever to Hawaii.

/common sense
//unless of course there are no records, then we still have an issue

His mother could have given ass-birth to him on the moon, with a full stack of paper records, polaroids and samples of the moon dust and fecal matter, and it still wouldn't matter because she was an American citizen at the time of his birth. There is no issue.


You wouldn't, but the problem is that the Constitution doesn't come out and say that. "natural born" to many means "born in the U.S."

However, those that have a serious problem with Barry's status should look at what the Founders intended only a few years into the new republic:

The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens".

Naturalization Act of 1790 seems clear enough, even if at the time people like Barry would be ineligible because half his ancestors stayed too long in Africa. Be that as it may, why is the words of the Founders not good here and good with other issues like what constitutes a militia? Good question.

No, I raised the point of medical records, to make a point. There seems to be a lot of Clintonseque b.s. around this issue and there shouldn't be. You would have thought Democrats would have learned their lessons during the 90s, but apparently they didn't and now they complain about the drafty house and flies in the kitchen after leaving a door open.

Well I mean Come ON people, is it REALLY so ridiculous to think that on that fateful day in 1961, a mere 3 years before the Voting Rights Act was passed, Anne Dunham looked down at her mixed-race child and thought "Gee I'd better put an announcement in the Hawaii newspaper to pretend he was born in the USA , after all he might be president someday"?

Also worth noting that in 2000, Senator Obama sponsored legislation (with Hillary as a co-sponsor) specifically clarifying that someone born in the Panama Canal zone qualified as a natural born US citizen for Presidential eligibility purposes.

But remember, both side are exactly the same

It's easy to obtain a birth certificate in Hawaii in 1961. All one needed to do was to claim that they witnessed an unattended birth outside of a hospital within one month and to provide a legal identification and proof of residency.

puckrock2000: AverageAmericanGuy: FlashHarry: even if obama had been born in kenya, his mother was american, which would give him american citizenship. literally the ONLY thing he couldn't have done that he could have done as american-born is serve as president of the united states.

Not necessarily. There are so many misconceptions surrounding this, but the laws are clear.

His mother would have to had filed a Consular Report of Birth Abroad before he turned 18 in order for him to claim citizenship if he was born abroad.

Link

Not according to 8 USC § 1401 (g) - such a person is considered a US citizen by birth. The Consular Report of Birth Abroad would merely be supporting documentation.


The consular report is the documentation and proof of citizenship for those born abroad to US citizens. Without the consular report, there is no proof of citizenship, and it cannot be filed retroactively once the person has reached 18 years of age.

So what does that have to do with anything? I fail to see any point you are trying to make here. I will find people contemptible that I think are idiots and if they want to fight dirty, I can too. BFD.

I hope Trump holds his impotent rage over being insulted by Obama close to his heart and takes it to his grave. Because he deserves it, as do all the birthers. He and they are utter morons and racists and the more we take the piss out of them and humiliate them the better.

gshepnyc: Here is why he does this:

1. Foreign buyers make up the biggest segment of customers for his very high-end condos.
2. The Chinese wealthy in particular are Trump property fans, for some reason.
3. The Chinese are utterly fascinated that a private citizen can and will be so insulting to a President.
4. This is easy, constant advertising to him.
5. Profit - the margins we are talking about are in the many millions of dollars. A condo in a new Trump building in NYC can go for many millions of dollars, and he has a LOT of them here and in other cities. And he gets a percentage on re-sales, too, in addition to the very lucrative management of the buildings.


1. He's an Asshole.
