I have always been outspoken when it comes to politics and I have always prided myself on being able to back my beliefs with statistics and facts. I think that is the reason that I have such a problem with the birther movement that should be on minute 14:59 of their fifteen minutes of fame. Just a glossing over on these morons, they are the small contingent of people who continually get coverage on news outlets with a ridiculous conspiracy theory that the President of the United States was not really born in the U.S. and he has some nefarious socialistic plot for us all. Despite the fact that the state of Hawaii has on numerous occasion verified the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate they spout everything from photoshopped to government conspiracy without an ounce of truth. Two characters have angered me more than the others.
Luke Scott is an outfielder for the Baltimore Orioles. A fiery player who plays the game balls to the wall and I frankly am a big fan of his on the field. Off the field the man is a moron. Recently he told the Kansas City Star’s Sam Mellinger "President Obama's birth certificate has yet to be validated.” Really Luke? Even if this hadn’t been dispelled years ago and the birthers have chosen to ignore all of the information presented and the press conference last week in which the long form birth certificate was presented to press has not been enough. I think Seth Myers summed it up perfectly for me, “when did we become so distrustful? If we didn’t see it, did it really happen?” Stick to trying to hit Mariano Rivera’s cutter and leave the politics to someone with a grip on reality.
The person who wins the award for most infuriating is the so called “birther queen” Orly Taitz.
I have a question for Mrs. Taitz, where is your birth certificate. Here is a woman who has among other things claimed:
• A number of homosexuals from Obama's former church have died mysteriously.
• Obama has dozens of Social Security numbers, and his passport is inaccurate. Taitz claims that a person who was cooperating with the FBI in connection with Obama's passport died mysteriously, "shot in the head".
• A Kenyan birth certificate with the name "Barack Obama" is authentic.
• Obama is having the Federal Emergency Management Agency build internment camps for "Anti-Obama dissidents
Now if there was one shred of truth to any of this do you think he would be president? What makes him so special that the entire government would be complicit in a cover up? You can’t get a job at a fast food place without valid identification! I guess the whole point of this is disagree with the president if you want to, but please use common sense and a thing called facts and not made up bull crap to back up your opinions.
I’ll end by saying this, Seal Team Six is the most bad ass team of heroes in my lifetime. I thank you and appreciate you.
Given that we don’t know their identites I’ll use the team assembled by Stephen Colbert of John McClain, Rambo, Batman, Laura Croft, Master Chief, Vin Diesel and Kung Fu Panda.
