I don’t think Barry has ever been to college. It has to be fake.

Somebody’s got a barcode reader and knowledge of Columbia coding.

Let’s suppose for the moment it is real. When did Soetero/Obama change his name? Shouldn’t there be legal documents for a name change, including court registration, social security, selective service, to name a few?

No, bar codes were not used in 1981. And the photo is an older Barry.

according to snopes “ the pictured card couldn’t possibly have have been a Columbia University student ID issued to Barack Obama in 1981, as the digital ID card format it uses wasn’t introduced at Columbia until 1996”

This was discussed a few months ago; think it was put forth by knowledgeable posters that student ID’s weren’t using them at that time.

No, and you shouldn’t post crap such as this obviously bogus document. Fakes such as these are photo-shopped in an attempt to get gullible conservatives to pick them up and forward them with a goal of making conservatives look like idiots.

Don’t help these fraudsters.

This photo is too recent. It could have been 10-15 years ago. None of his pics look like the same person, but this one was 1990s forward.

It goes without saying he was born in Kenya, he admitted to it. But what makes you think the RINO party will do anything about it? The guy has brought flat out hardcore communism and totalitarianism to the US government and even THAT doesn’t get the RINO party to crawl out from their fetal positions under their desks. Matter of fact they even attack their own! Ted Cruz! How effed up is that? “How dare you stress out The Dear Leader!”

Bar codes back then; don’t think so.

Bar Codes date back further than you think (the 1940s) in industrial applications, and were in regular commercial use by the late 70s once the Universal Product Codes were agreed on.

Columbia could well have had bar codes on their student IDs by then, but I don't know if they really did.

According to Wiki a bar code type of system was used on trains in the 60s and they first appeared on packs of Wrigley’s gum in 1974 and they really took off from there.

Know it is ‘fake’.
If it is/was real ‘they’ would have been calling racist for forcing him to carry a picture ID....

OK, I never said it was authentic, but was stating that bar codes were in use much earlier. They came into their own in the 1970’s. I know, I spent 35 years in the wholesale distribution industry.

Now, I have no problem with people who are knowledgeable about what bar code method and when they used it at Columbia.

Nothing about Obozo’s past is real, it is totally conjured. None of the pieces fit. It is all a Total Lie.

No.

Based on my college ID it would not have had a bar code but his SS# would be front and center.

Nope. Definitely fake. The photo is the same one used for the cover of David Maraniss' book, not a student ID photo:

Yup.

Remember the ‘generic canned food’ craze with the plain white cans?
A simple statement of what was inside and a bar code.

Great if it was, but my guess is that something completely different than what most anyone has thought of, will bring Obama down, or at least out him for who he is. [Hint: the heavens are Mighty powerful; keep praying.]

That sounds reasonable to me. I doubt Columbia was advanced enough at the time to use the same technology as the local supermarket was using for inventory control. ;~))

They started putting barcodes (UPC) on products (Wrigleys gum being first) in 1974.

The original poster just asked whether it was phony. A valid question. You may remember the George Bush service records Dan Rather promoted on CBS? Sharp eyed Freepers helped establish those documents were fake.

“Bar codes back then; don’t think so.”

The only bar codes I remember back then were...no spitting on the ugly women, and last call. Other than that, the bars I frequented were “codeless”.

Not that yahoo answers is always correct, but according to them barcodes were first used in library books in the early 1980s.

This is from a page about Bar Code History: bar code history

"The event that really got bar code into industrial applications occurred September 1, 1981 when the United States Department of Defense adopted the use of Code 39 for marking all products sold to the United States military. This system was called LOGMARS, and is still in use today by the US military."

It may not be his id, but not due to the bar code.
