Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

That it’s a fake.  This won’t actually change anyone’s mind.  The conspiracists don’t really want the truth, it just muddies their waters with facts.

Really, why go and publish it when everybody’s going to be saying it’s 21st century technology creating something that doesn’t exist.

Did you see the font on that thing?  That’s definately a 1961 typewriter. Some of the letters go right through the paper. You can’t fake that with a computer.  Of course, somebody will say it took them three years to find a typewriter from 1961.  It’ll never end.

I think they were holding off until the upcoming elections, and waiting for some republican to make that a talking point.

Oh, hey, here’s Donald Trump. Nobody likes him. He’ll do.

Let’s see…. off the top of my head…

1.  Why did it take 4 days for the doc to sign the birth certificate?  cool cheese

2.  Interesting to note that it is signed by the doc and then recorded on the same day.  cool hmm
    (For those saying that things moved slower “way back when”.)

3.  Knowing that Obama’s family was rich and well connected, is it at all possible that he was born out-country, and his papers were then forged at a later day to say otherwise? cool smirk

4.  Aliens. gulp

5.  Bigfoot (with the Pope). snake

cheese

The PDF has Snopes at the bottom; what is that about? (not challenging anything about Obama, just wondering why the White House are using that PDF?)

I can’t see the word Snopes. Is it right on the bottom?
