This is a step in the right direction for Arizona. Please give us a chance, some of us are just figuring out that we live in a desert.

Huh. I thought they were going to hold that during the RNC convention?

"The REASON the EVENT by Sheriff Joe & his Cold Case POSSE was CANCELLED is because the Sheriff & others are TOO DUMB to SEE the MURDERS Barack Obama had his Security Adviser John Brennan commit on Obama's Gay Lovers in Chicago,"

Oh lord. They've gone Clinton.

I'm not paying good money to go to a birther convention that doesn't feature the A-listers like Trump and Orly Taitz.

If after four years you are still hung up on Obama's citizenship, you shouldn't be allowed to vote.

I also believe if you think Bush had anything to do with 9/11 then you also should not be allowed to vote.

I wish it wasn't cancelled so Arpaio could spew his stupidity further and become public mockery. Although that runs the risk of further enforcing the Birther idiots.

Wait, what? That doesn't even make sense!

The real reason is probably that coward Laiken didn't want to take a chance that a real soldier would show up and kill him live on stage for dodging service in Afghanistan. Boy, would that have made them look bad. How can you spin a fragging to make it Obama's fault?

The whole thing is comedy gold that only helps Obama and generally sane people everywhere. These birther and tea party inbreeds show the rest of the country what the right wing base truly consists of, and if they want to hold a jamboree I say let 'em have their fun.

You've no idea how much people out here don't pay attention to this. Old people think he's great. They spend 1/2 the year creating a mess, politically. The Tea Party enjoys a nice tie into the religion of the East Valley (Mormons), which gives him a lot of voters. Some simply think 'at least he's doing something about it' and passively support him and vote for him. It is maddening.

According to 301(g); 8 USC § 1401(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, if a newly born child has a US-citizen parent who was present in the country for periods totaling at least 5 years before the birth, and at least 2 of those were after the parent turned 14, the child is automatically a US citizen even if they're born outside the country.

Obama's mom is a woman from Wichita, KS who birthed him at 18. Therefore, Obama would be a natural-born US citizen EVEN IF HE WERE BORN IN KENYA.

And even if his mom US soil at 1 day old or whatever and didn't meet that requirement, as long as she came back with him to the states before he was 18, he would automatically gain citizenship that way (via ACT430), which means all those records of his mother attending University of Hawai'i and University of Washington before they went to Indonesia must be fakes, as well as his attendance at Punahou School, etc.

Oh, the actual Constitution and US law don't matter--the 14th amendment and INA have no effect on these people because a lot of birthers are using the 1700s French (French!) philosophy of "natural born citizen," which requires not only that you were born in the country of citizenship, but also that both parents were born in the country of citizenship. This was something our founding fathers knew about and debated over, but obviously they went with a less stringent definition to begin with, and then left the possibility for further amendment. This "natural born" philosophy also stirred up some shiat around Romney during the primaries (since his dad was born in Mexico), and I recall some rumblings about it when Rubio and Jindal were on the VP list. So apparently French philosophy can trump the Constitution and US law in determining citizenship for a lot of these people, especially when the person involved is the wrong color/religion.

The dissonance is stunning, simply stunning.
