Actually that is another mystory of history. Why did the Japanese use matadors as pilots and why would those matadors think they were up against female bulls?

Bolding mine. The fact you researched it yourself and found no confirmation probably means it was false...

I don't know which has me laughing more: the rampant paranoia in the post or the fact that this person is so self-important that the OP thinks that the only place that snopes could have possibly come across this e-mail was by raiding the OP's inbox.

Or the missing distinction between real mail and electronic mail when it comes to federal crimes.

Comment: This is unbelievable at first, but you will soon realize that
there are several motives for the global communists to physically weave
our United States territory together with communist China. Read On! Here's
what is going on!
Each and every one of our state governors has approved and allocated a
certain amount of acres of their U.S. state land to be inhabited by
Chinese communists --communists straight from China! They are to set up
little towns and live here, supposedly for the purpose of producing
Chinese products for sale in the U.S.A. The land the states are giving
them for their little towns will be considered "foreign territory"!!! We
are told that the laws of the state (in which these Chinese communists
dwell) will apply to the communist Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ). Comment: If
so, why are they allowed in here!??! Isn't the whole set up unlawful???
There are 257 of these little communist towns to be built all over the
United States. Go to this website and see the list of the states, and how
many FTZ's are to be erected in each and every state! Our nation is
being peppered all over with these communist closed towns called "zones"!
This insane brainstorm by Washington, D.C. officials was just recently
discovered by alert citizens in the State of Idaho, where an FTZ is being
built there, just south of Boise, Idaho, possibly 30,000 acres of Idaho is
going to be used for that FTZ.

Now just to get this straight so there isn't any confusion, these are Communists from----- Patagonia right?

This beginning to sound an awful lot like the plot of Red Nightmare. Has your movie experience past beyond 1950's propoganda shorts.

Because if they want to take over, Idaho is the perfect place to start. Those crafty Idahoans nothing gets past them! Forget New York, Washington D.C., phoooey. It's Idaho that's the problem. It is Idaho that we must defend.

Maybe it's already working. I hear of nutcases from Idaho and immediately ignore it. Boy who cried wolf and all. So, if the Chinese Communists directly from China want to invade, that would be the perfect place. No one would believe they were there until it was too late. And all them there Chinese in Canada - that's how they're going to start it all! See, it's been going on for years!

Comment: To Whom it may concern,

I am writing to you about this article:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/citizen.asp

In this article it claims as a matter of fact that President Obama was
born in Hawaii but does not bring any evidence for the claim.

I don't have an agenda against the President of the USA. To state as a
matter of fact that the President was born in the USA then you should be
able to demonstrate that he was.

Please provide us with the factual information that shows President Obama
was born in the USA. Where is his birth certificate that would prove it?
What hospital was he born in?

This is such a glaring issue for me. I feel like our government has
become a government of men rather than a government of laws. Where is the
accountability here?

You know, the really sad thing is that there is a link to an image of his certificate of live birth right in the article.

But, hey, let's not let facts get in the way of a good rant.

Comment: Why do you continue to say Obama has a Hawiian Birth Certificate
when all you show is nothing more than an ID card issued to anyone who
asked for it. Where is the long form with the Doctor's signature. And what
is with the BS that no one can look at Obama's birth certificate that
doesn't have a Doctor's signature or the State Seal. Anyone can type up a
birth certificate as you so readily agree about the Kenya birth
certificate. Show the signature and official State seal, without it you
and Obama have nothing!

Comment: It is pretty apparent you do NOT pursue any story that is
negative for the Usurper President that is in office... The trail in
Hawaii is wide open if you look for Barry Soetoro. This has been ignored
by all liberals and now the Congress in General is disinterested...

*Sighs* I wish all the Tin Foil Hatters would drop the President Obama isn't a citizen storyline and go back to the aliens and Big Foot and Loch Ness Monster. At least you could make good Sci-Fi movies out of those. You couldn't have an episode of the X-Files built around the President's citizenship.

Damnit if you're gonna be wrong at least be entertaining.

Comment: Hi, This morning I recieved a e-mail from a Dr. Manning, who has
had a row going against Obama for some time now. In his message he stated
that the courts had given Obama 90 days to resign from the Presidents
Office. I've heard nothing of this from our news sources. I am wondering
if you have heard anything of this ?? *

Should anything nefarious be proved, I imagine the response will be an immediate removal from office, not a 90 day order to quit.

Comment: As an independent thinker, retired Biomedical Engineer and Professor, I
have been following these unfolding events. Why hasn't Snopes kept up with
an addressed facts that a COLB does not, in any way, contrue that Barack
Obama was born in any Hawaiian facility. "Massaging" this "truth" through
second-hand accounts doesn't bode well for your authenicity as a
"fact-finding" and "truth'finding" entity.

What I have found is that any normal, rational being, using any minimal
amount of deductive reasoning would easily come to the conclusion that
there is far more to this than is being revealed. When articles, newsclips
and videos disappear, en-masse, from the internet, in which Mr. Obama, in
his own words, alludes to the fact that Kenya is the place of his
birth...and then document after document disappears and is hidden from
public (and Constitutional) scrutiny, it makes one wonder the
insidiousness of perhaps what has (or has not) taken place.

If you were the "fact-finding" and "truth-telling" entity, of which you
portend to be, you would have done your due diligence much further than
Wikipedia's homepage.

Similarly, magical pink unicorns have disappeared, en masse, from the face of the Earth, as demonstrated by the fact that none can be found anywhere.
