Actual facts undermine birthers' fraud

"A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." -Mark Twain

An update to yesterday's entry on the anti-Obama 'birthers' movement:

Apparently the birthers have produced a document purporting to be Barack Obama's Kenyan birth certificate. It claims Obama was born on August 9, 1961 in Mombassa, Republic of Kenya.

The city of Mombassa was a part of the British colony of Zanzibar until 1963 when it was ceded to Kenya.

Second, Kenya did not become a republic until December 1964, ten months after the purported document was issued.

In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away their rights) and that’s who they need to focus on if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

In the same vein, to all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true, if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories. You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess he fooled them too?
