Does anyone list their race as Caucasian these days?

Are you forgetting that this is from almost 50 years ago?

Are you capable of actual thought?

Comment: So, would you write up a story about Obama if it were negative? Or are
you only interested in propping up democrats?

I'm not saying that the Republicans are wonderful or perfect, only that
Obama is not a citizen of the US, not any kind of citizen, not
naturalized, not by birth. He's a citizen of Indonesia.

So my question, will you publish negative information that relates to
Obama?

Because one day he and the rest of America will have to face the music.
For Obama and others (such as Pelosi,) it might mean long jail sentences
for fraud or aiding and abetting such fraud, and for ordinary folks,
people like me and you, it will mean years of cleaning up.

That's if everything goes well. Some conservatives look at America and
wonder whether the band-aids and rubber-bands will continue to hold...

I guess the way I'm different is that I think America has perhaps another
ten years left. No more than that.

Not that I want to see this country fall apart. I don't. But I think
we're a nation in trouble.

And to pretend that Obama's a citizen when you have a pretty good idea
that he isn't, well, it's called lying and such conduct damages people.

As I write this I am wondering whether I have done the same thing
defending GWB? I don't know. I really don't...

Comment: I have skimmed through your web site, and honestly its very
unimformative! Your misinformation is just that misinformation. 2 things
to consider revising 1. YES! 3 civilians where shot at in Iraq by an
apache helicopter, and by the way it was more than 3 people, which one of
them happend to be a journalist for Reuters. 2. The Pentagon did indeed
get attacked, not by an airplane, but a bunker buster missle, Where was
the airplane? If you can somehow change your ratings and views of these 2
topics that would be great. If you have a contradiction to what I am
saying, I am more than happy to show you the proper information.

Yes, I have to agree where is the airplane?

If it was a bunker buster missle, why do eye-witnesses remember seeing an airplane?
If it was a missle, what happened to American Airlines Flight 77?
Where is that airplane? Where are the people who were aboard that airplane?

By denying the facts you're trivializing the death of those passengers on that airplane.

Leaving aside the whole birther insanity, what exactly would we be cleaning up? Why would a non-US citizen be a particularly worse President than a natural born citizen?

You know, I don't think I've seen that addressed on the "It wasn't an airplane people, wake up!@!" sites. What then, supposedly, DID happen to that airplane, where are those people? Maybe they think the government, in planning this attack, landed the airplane at area 51 and shot all the people, to cover it up and make it look like it was used at the Pentagon?

Anybody know if anyone claiming it wasn't a plane there actually has addressed that aspect...?

At least some of them are alive and well, living under their new identities:

Good freakin' grief. I like how the author also puts a little "Da Vinci Code" conspiracy in for good measure. This poor woman, and the poor family of the deceased, to be stalked and probably hounded by conspiracy-seeking whackjobs.

Whow indeed

Just look at their website's header pic: it's a badly doctored version of Delacroix's La Liberté guidant le Peuple where they replaced the French flag by an American one (and the weapons with brooms).

Just to show how credible these guys are, and to prove right away that they're ready to fake anything if it fits their purpose. No need to read further.

Comment: I just heard a rumor from about 10 different people, I personally
don't believe it... but you never know?

"Hey everyone, listen up! I heard today that if any US citizen visits the
Wikileaks site, the government will know and watch your every move and
eventually classify you as a terrorist for revealing government secrets!
Be careful and don't look at the site!"

Just curious: do you ever attempt to answer these kinds of emails, or did you long ago decide that it's better not to pour gasoline on the fire? LOL

Comment: A Federal Judge was killed in AZ last Friday. To date, his death
is discounted as just another victim. However, 72 hours before he was
killed, he issued a "preliminary ruling" against the Obama Administration
to prevent them from acting on an FDR Executive Order (6102) which allowed
the government to seize personal savings when no proof of a crime was
committed. (Case number 4;2010CV00703, Filed Nov. 30, 2010). Why hasn't
the MSM pursued this? and/or why is it being kept quiet when it is
obviously material/relevant?

Japan

Comment: I am taking classes to become a real estate agent. Today my
teacher told me that Hawaii is OWNED by Japan and leased to the United
States. I didn't want to push her on the matter, I just decided I would
come home and research it myself but have not been able to find any
confirmation.

Then it was kind of foolish of them to bomb their own property, wasn't it?

That was an unfortunate miscommunication. See, someone took a phone message that Hawaii had a severe cockroach infestation and needed a "bug bomb".

When the message got passed along it was shortened to "bomb Hawaii!"

History makes so much more sense when things are put into perspective.
