Short Bus's Obama Birth Certificate Defense Is Officially ZOTTED
The Stir ^ | 3/2/12 | Sasha Brown-Worsham

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.

Trying to find a good audio on youtube.
SO far, everything I’ve found has craptastic audio or isn’t the right call.

If you listen to “The cat came back,” it will eliminate all other songs for an undetermined interval.

A K is exactly the same as a °C, but starts 273.15° lower

A °F is 5/9 of a °C, but freezing is 0°C and 32°F

Ahman...did I have the morning from Heck, or what?

I called Cox yesterday to find out what the hours were for the office closest to me and was told “0800 to 1800,” so I planned my errands around that, thinking I could get everything done by taking the bus at 0740 and getting home around 1040. Right.

I got to Cox to find it locked, with hours on it of “0900 to 1700.” I looked in the door and saw a cleaning woman, so I took the cable box out of my backpack, knocked on the glass door and showed it to her, then showed her I was setting it down by the doors.

Then I went across the street to to bus stop and called Cox. Don’t you know the gal was trying to give me a guilt trip about it? I said, “Ohno! First of all, if I hadn’t been given misinformation about the hours of this store, it wouldn’t have happened. Second of all I can no long afford the mega bucks for the ‘only $20 more a month’ that suckered me in in the first place. That $20 has gone to $48 and I can no long afford it.”

Then she tried to talk me into “bundling my home phone, TV, and internet service for $90 a month total.” Why would I want a home phone when I can’t afford anything but basic cable?

Anyway, back on the bus, different driver, and went to Wally World. Left there and got the same female driver I had earlier. I had to ask her to kneel the bus again. She made me wait in the cold wind until she walked the bus and gathered up the trash.

Just before my stop for home is a RR crossing, which they have to stop for and open to the doors, which she did. Then drove right past my stop. I said, “Aren’t you going to stop?” “Well! If you want on or off the bus, you have to push the buttion.” Me: I DID push the button. Her: I didn’t hear it. Me: If you would have been paying attention, you would have heard it. It’s also displayed on your dashboard.

She let me off at the next stop and I had to walk uphill, in the icy wind for 20 miles! Through the snow and ice!

Now that I’ve had three calamities in one day, I’m good for another three or four years! LOL!

Hi everyone!
I'll never catch up on all the posts to this thread. :-)
Who am I kidding? I never catch up.
I haven't been feeling well for a few days, but am on the road to recovery now.
Nothing serious.

I love the warm weather! High 40’s / Low 50’s for the next week. Woo-Hoo!

I'm getting Seed Fever, LOL!

I’ve made soft pretzels. I think you toss them into boiling H2O at one point, like bagels, so that they get that glossy look before you salt and bake them. I’ve left that step out since they all taste the same even if not boiled.

"I thank the Creator for having known you!"

You mean like this?

A Walk With God

God and I were walking,
Along the endless sands,
Of the beaches of forever,
On my familiar span.

I had a million questions,
He had one answer, "Yes!"
Whatever's not a small reward,
Is just a simple test.

I try to walk here every day.
We watch the time and tide.
The rhythm of days is lulling,
Just I, and with Him beside.

I have no fear of fortune,
As We are walking here,
For peace and joy encompass me,
Because my God is near.
