Obama has brought forth the desired document and now the birthers are extinct. Well, not extinct exactly, and not gone. They have evolved, predictably, into the After-Birthers!

Itís an excellent title because it reminds us of wildebeest placentas rotting in the Serengeti sun, and the blowfly larvae attending them.
I'm trying to come up with a term to describe the Birthers' frenzied attempts to definitively uncover evidence that Obama's long form birth certificate is a forgery. 'After-Birthers' seems about right.

Gateway Pundit's Jim Hoft debunked the document in fifty two seconds on YouTube. He declares it's a fraud. Wow, wouldn't you think Obama could come up with something a little better than that? He does have the CIA at his disposal. Hoft easily unmasked the counterfeit because he's a graphic artist and can tell. I was always waiting for him or some other lunatic like Pam Geller to break into the hospital in Hawaii to try and locate the original. G. Gordon Liddy and his crew of plumbers are too old now.

Have you ever seen a cow calving out in the pasture? Often they are watched over by vultures. The birds are not after the calf, unless it is stillborn, but the placenta. Has anyone noticed any vultures circling Trump and the rest yet?

Apparently, comprehension isn't your strong suit. I'll repost my dissection of the sentence that's put sand in your clit.

In the final sentence, I said "people like our own bill scott". I didn't say you. I said "people" (is that an insult?) similar to you (would you not agree that fans of Palin/bachmann/Trump et.al. are far more similar ideologically to you than to me?) "seem" (as in "in my perception") to "lap it up".


Regardless of how many times you repost it, there is not an accusation in there, false or otherwise. It is an observation and an opinion, but not a statement of fact.

So who wants to place bets that now you're going to say that I'm "backpedaling" and that I haven't "manned up" (another lame attempt to goad me).

Despite what you think, by your repeated responses (going on 3 pages now) to such an innocuous, throw-away comment, it is you that's looking like a whiny bitch.

You certainly personify "dish it out, but can't take it"

Exhibit A:

"your just bent because your Nobel Peace Prize winning anointed one is really a maverick war hawk who drops bombs on whoever he decides needs it."


Who is having a hissy fit now? Not me.


I beg to differ.

BTW, I'm still waiting for the evidence that there have been "plenty of threads in the forum where people are criticized and mocked on the day of their death."

OK let me set you straight here. You make false accusations about me on a thread in which I am not even participating in. I ask you numerous times to man up and back up the accusations against me with even just a shred of evidence, to which you refuse to back up your false accusations numerous times. And know your insisting that I address your request for evidence? Oh that is rich, even coming from you.


Nice dodge, bill. Who's making false claims now?

BTW, thanks for derailing the thread even after you claimed that you were not going to.


So what? So I changed my mind? Big f-ing deal. Had this topic been about something more substantive, I might have acted differently. But let's be serious here: this is about Donald Trump being a birther. Snooki is more substantive than this. But you're just grasping at straws now because you're looking like a four-star jackass.

But if you're going to cling to this whole "derailing" angle, have at it. You're running out of other options at this point.

Maybe you could nitpick my spelling or grammar. Or pull out the old "you're all over the board here" chestnut.

THE FOLLOWING IS SAID IN COMPLETE SERIOUSNESS WITHOUT ANY SARCASM:

It's nearing the end of the workday and I don't know if I'll get much chance to post this weekend, so you have a good weekend Bill.

"Oh, I'm sorry. I thought my Dark Lord of the Sith could protect a small thermal exhaust port that's only 2-meters wide! That thing wasn't even fully paid off yet! You have any idea what this is going to do to my credit?!?!"

"What? Oh, oh, 'just rebuild it'? Oh, real [bleep]ing original. And who's gonna give me a loan, jackhole? You? You got an ATM on that torso LiteBrite?"

I am sorry Obama released the long form. But what that does do is push the idea that he wasn't born in Hawaii back on to the hard core lunatic camp and leaves the more average lunatics to figure out how to delegitimize Obama's presidency in other more creative ways...


Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

You obviously missed the conditional in my statement...still, it's good to know that he was kidding.

Sometimes it's hard to tell.

Oh yeah, Bill...glass houses and all. Do you want us to start bringing up some of your rants?

Fine, have it your way. I responded to you in an effort to get you to produce one shred of evidence that your "observation/opinion" of me was not based solely off of fairy tales floating around in your head. You have failed to do so over and over and over again. Rather then provide one once of crediability for your opionn you would rather waste time playing semantic games. Thank you for proven what I already knew, and this that you ramble on with no forethought to what it even is that you are saying. Nor do you seem to care if is even remotely grounded in reality. You are just a pathetic bomb thrower, but that's just my opinion/observation of you. But I do offer you this entire thread as evidence to back up my opinion.

Have a nice weekend.

The thing about the birthers is that they have made up their minds already, and any evidence contrary to their beliefs must therefore be wrong and false.

But I wonder, how many of them really do believe this stuff, and how many of them just say they do to increase the number of people with such beliefs to make it more plausible? Like, if so many people don't believe he's a citizen, maybe there's something to it.

I must ask: If Obama was white, do you think that the question would have ever come up?

I don't.

So tough titty, birthers; you're all a bunch of would-be crackers who care more for your vicious and imbecilic prejudices than the welfare of your country. Iím sick of hearing you whine about it, and I spit on everything that you stand for -- or pretend to stand for.
