Comment: In your article on Sharia Prohibition dated 10 July 2009, you
stated that Obama has never been to Saudia Arabia.

According to Fox News,
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009...vel-itinerary/
and The Washington Post,
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...060300943.html

Obama visited Saudia Arabia on June 2, 2009 and Egypt on June 2, 1009.

I have always checked emails using Snopes.com to see if they were correct
or not. Now that I know Snopes is not correct, who can I turn to?

Wow. He's much older than I thought he was.

He probably went to Egypt to establish the defenses for the first Crusade.

Well there you have it. If he was around in 1009 Obama couldn't possibly be a natural born citizen os the USA because the country didn't exist until much later.

Oh that bit's so easy though. They don't do it NOW, of course. But everyone remembers seeing it when they were younger.

I'm betting that in another 20 years, people will remember seeing this "20 years ago", too.

And hey cool - Time travelling Obama goes to Saudi Arabia every thousand years or so ... on my birthday!

Comment: RE: In your comment on the quotes alleged to have been made by
Obama about having veterans private health care coverage pay for injuries
received while they were in the military you say that this rumor was
started by a satirical article written by John Semmens. Why didn't you
reference his article? I went to Semmens' website and found no such
article. His website gives all of the articles that he has written over
the years -- but, doesn't give this particular article which is the
foundation of you comments!

WHAT GIVES?

Comment: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama...s/lefthand.asp

While I appreciate the attempt to vindicate the Commander and his wife,
the "unmanipulated photo" does not even match the photo noted in the
description. Look at the background and the fact that neither soldier is
soluting. I have examined the photo at the bit level and it appears to be
authentic. I think they used the wrong hand and someone snapped a photo
before they were informed.

Comment: Birth Certificte for Barack Obama. I was under the understanding
that he was known as Barry and changed his name to Barack.

If he was Barry then how could his birth certificate say Barack?

Well, as obviously your understanding can't be wrong, the only possible solution is that it's all part of an ebil librul muslim-luvin media plot working to undermine traditional American family values.

Comment: Remove me from your database. I find your conduction in mining my personal information, and then not letting me post a reply is reprehensible.

The only reason I went through the tedious process of registering was to reply to a post. Now i am denied that opportunity. Clearly your only interest is in collecting private data. I spit on you.

Delete any information I have provided.

Photo Bob - you know those gag flowers with a little hole that squirt water at someone when they go to sniff?

See that little hole on top of a reasonably modern laptop monitor - you didn't think that was just for the webcam did you?

" < spit > < /spit > "

There you go. Of course when the onboard saliva reservoir runs out, you will have to send it in under warranty.
