Skip to comments.Short Bus's Obama Birth Certificate Defense Is Officially ZOTTED
Posted on 03/02/2012 9:17:36 AM PST by Short Bus
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona is bound and determined to make sure we never forget the embarrassment of the birther movement. Most of us would love to put that ugly little racist blip in our history -- a time when conspiracy theorists and fools alike accused President Barack Obama of not being American. But Arpaio, a sheriff in Phoenix, Arizona, just won't give it up.
Can we say beating a dead horse, people? Sometimes it seems like certain politicians just do things to help out Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, and Bill Maher. After all, how else does anyone explain Arpaio's inane and insane assertion that Obama, a man who produced his birth certificate last year, isn't American?
See his ranting [here].
"Forgery or fraud may have been committed," says Arpaio. Ooooh no! Are ghosts and goblins real, too, Sheriff Arpaio? How about the Loch Ness Monster? Do you go visit old Nessie on your days off from enforcing the laws of Arizona?
In all seriousness, this is vile racism plain and simple. In a place like Arizona, it's no surprise -- after all, many politicians there (including Arpaio) hold rather Draconian views on immigration -- and it's disgusting. And it's getting old fast.
For all you doubters for whom book learning was apparently a challenge, here are the facts: President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961. He has produced both a certificate of live birth during the 2008 campaign and the long-form certificate last year. Neither has been disproved.
So why is this still going on? Arpaio seems like a joke, but, according to Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt, Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney doesn't think so. Yesterday LaBolt tweeted:
Romney has called Arpaio for his endorsement, his aides called "weekly" and Arpaio was his honorary Chair in 08.That's embarrassing. The fact is, most people agree Arpaio is a few cards shy of a full deck, but here we are still talking about him. Is this an alternate universe? Why am I guessing this guy is the type of person who stays at parties hours after they have ended asking for more chips and guacamole? Dude, the party is over, the ship has sailed, and you are beating a dead horse.
Sadly, there aren't enough cliched ways to say IT'S OVER to make it any clearer to this guy.
Arpaio rocks! Prisoners sleep in tents, wear stripes, and get pink underwear. His guard dogs get fed better than the inmates. Inmates get bologna sandwiches. Arpaio says he’s running a prison, not a spa for gangsters.
No TV, no weight room, no A/C. My kinda guy!
I’d love to have that poster to hang on my front door (inside.)
Gives you a sense of perspective, eh?
I read his book, years ago I suppose. Quite a sense of humor.
Yes, it does.
I am hoping that he is healthy enough to throw his hat into the presidentail ring, but I don’t know. I also hope there is someone else just as gutsy to take on the fight when he is gone.
America needs heroes like him.
Yeah, well...it also shamelessly resurrects the 1980’s, but it did fit the moment.
I vote for him regularly. I also always answer polls about him running for Governor “Heck no!” We need him right where he is, and he probably would not be a successful Governor because the necessary skill set is much, much different.
Whatever he’s doing, I hope he completes his job. He has what it takes to run the AZ prison system, and if he could run America’s Prison System, we would have far less crime.
I love the guy! <3
You have hit the proverbial nail on the proverbial head....Sidney was NOT old enough to confer citizenship on her son and the alleged father was not a citizen at all.....therefore Barrack Hussein Obama is NOT a natural born citizen of the United States even if he was born in Hawaii - which seems increasingly unlikely. (Thank you, Sheriff Joe.)
The way he treats his prisoners will catch up with him someday (lack of proper medical care). I hope it’s after he leaves office on his own.
BTW, true story: I once kicked him in the shins...lol. It was an accident, he was where he wasn’t supposed to be, and I tripped over him.
Appreciate the Ping. I was in need of a little levity after the latest news cycle outrages.
You are a true pal! Thank you!
“high jacked” means:
A. inordinately elevated
C. seriously jacked up
D. all of the above
Go somewhere else...there are grownups talking here
And your right. An oath is forever.
Why should he give any latitude to law-breakers?
If I commited a crime, and become injured in the process, I should not expect the local tax dollars to pay for my injuries in the commission of a felony.
Sorry, but I have no sympathy for law-breakers, no matter where they are. I have heard the story of stealing bread to feed a family, but there are other ways to get that bread...ask/beg for it; go to a homeless center; go to a local church; ask your neighbors.
There is no reason on God’s green earth for anyone to go hungry except they are too proud to ask for help.
To Short Bus: Welcome to FR. Now,
Did Sheriff Joe say anything about the social security #?
In this county, all the city PDs send their arrestees to the county slammer, regardless of what they're accused of. People that haven't even been charged with a crime go to his jail and are then denied routine medical treatment, like anti-seizure or gastrointestinal medication. Others, also uncharged, contract difficult to treat fungal infections and parasites at the jail, and are denied treatment. These are not hypotheticals, these are specific cases I know of. It's not torture, but is it right?
If they're injured committing crimes, screw them, but that's not all that's going on here. Maltreatment of uncharged people. Not "law-breakers" until they're charged and convicted. The cases I've described were people who were simply arrested, never charged, and in fact never convicted of anything in the end. That's what's going to eventually cause him problems.
Hi Face. I brought the guide dog.
Silentgypsy, feel free to ask me any questions even though I garden in Zone 4A. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll tell you.
Bob, that was a nice thing to do! So, you are still a romantic. Good. I am suprised you haven’t started a thread tho.
Nully and Shimmer, sitting in a tree.....?
EsmeraldaA, LOL! I think zombies lurk, but can’t come through the screen unless Darks is online.
Seriously, inordinately, commandeered.
We’re only associates of the Lollypop Guild.
You are a lot faster than I.
I don’t like candy.
Bob is fast!
The birth certificate probably listed the babie’s religion as Muslim.
Fine by me. Liquor is quicker, anyway.
I'll drink to that!
Then I agree with you.
This goes on for the entire month of March on this thread? What's the "drink" word? "Authenticity"? Or, is it "bus"?
Something a little more subtle than that; a double adjective, especially delivered in a sing-songy voice, as was done when Dorothy landed in Oz.
"Not only merely dead, but really most sincerely dead!"
As in, for example, some fluke who presents her case, and then throws herself on the mercy of her courtship.
"We represent the Prophylactic Guild, the Prophylactic Guild, the Prophylactic Guild, ..." Well, okay, it needs work.
But, it's enough to put a beer in my hand.
Oops it’s Stanley, not Sydney but the point is still the same. Also Stanley had not lived in the US for the 14 years required by the laws of our land
I are off to bed... see you in the morning. I hope.
I guess I meant to say adverb.
I’m sure I had something in mind.
Did you know that homelies and homilies are not the same thing?
I are off to Pennsylvania in the morning. You'll have to line up with all the other witnesses.
I did that wrong.
I have no idea how that could have happened.
Tripe out they trotted
and righteously were zotted
and their leftovers are now Jumbo Shrimp
"But, it's enough to put a beer in my hand."
Mine too. :)
Science should look into it, I tell you!
Unfortunately for poor souls such as ourselves, all the big research money is currently tied up in combating the menace known as dihydrogen monoxide. The good news is that scientific inquiry in that quarter is proceeding swimmingly, from what I've been given to understand. The devastating effects of beervaporation are next on the study list.
Please remain where you are. Our agents will be there shortly to assist.
Gotta go on a beer run.
I know. You'll be here all week.
Wow, look at SB's argument, the long arm of the afterbirthers encircling and drawing in BO: "He's an immigrant. So what. You're racist against immigrants. RACISTS!"
They know darn well BO is ineligible and they want to rub everyone's face in it.
Thanks Butter; this is proving to be a very long struggle but we WILL PREVAIL in the end!! The truth will always come out...
It’s really difficult for me. Language, I am sorry that I haven’t. I think I just always expected that you learn a word in place of a word and when I discovered how difficult the grammar was and learning that was very discouraging for me.
I need some of that.....
There would be a cat picture here, but my computer has gone weird. Please stand by.
