From Mont Trembland where the weather's perfect, pool is nice, food is great and even from here, I still read the same BS from you. By 1962, the rot of Detroit was well sown, finances were down already, debt was piling, jobs were being lost to suburbs and south and Republicans were in charge. Wake up, Rogue, and read.El Cid wrote:
When is the last time Detroit had a non-Democrat mayor/city government? I think I more than made my point!!!
Whose da moron? Da question is easy to answer. Da answer is .... January 2, 1962!!! And every mayor cents 1974 has been a BLACK Democrat.
Now, just how was Detroit's problems caused by the Republicans?

It is said that Edison was the greatest of all inventors. False. You are. The greatest inventor of lies and fabrications. The French, The Germans, the Russians (Israelis, what a surprise!) did NOT agree with that premise. If so, I dare you to prove it. This is the 10th time minimum that lie of yours is refuted. Bush went on TV and admitted it was all a sham. See various youtubes of him confessing to his lie, it;s all over Google. "Mission accomplised?" I think not.

Re "Over 1200 tests"---YU made that up. There is no need to "marginalize" the birthers, they show that they are liars.
Oh, and BTW, there isn't even any proof that Obama's mother had a passport in 1961---and very very few 18-year-olds did in those days. I wonder why birther sites never tell their readers that?

The “born in Kenya” story is the height of the loony side of the birther movement. It is based on forgeries like that of Lucas D. Smith, and falsifications–such as the claim that Obama’s Kenyan grandmother said that he was born in Kenya—when she actually said right on the same tape that he was born IN HAWAII, and she said in another interview that the first that her family in Kenya had heard of Obama’s birth was in a letter FROM HAWAII.
Lucas D. Smith, a convicted felon, claimed that he went to Kenya and got Obama’s birth certificate at a hospital in Mombasa. But Lucas D. Smith has constantly refused to show proof that he, Smith, had ever gone to Kenya. All that he would have to do would be to show a Kenya stamp on a page of a passport, but Lucas D. Smith has refused to do that, constantly, and he has also constantly refused to say why he will not show that proof.(Moreover, his “birth certificate” uses US date formats [month/day/year] and not the day/month/year format used in Kenya.)
Laying aside for a moment the overwhelming proof that Obama was born in Hawaii, the evidence that Obama was NOT born in Kenya is also very strong. There were a grand total of 21 people who came to the USA from Kenya in 1961. Of these only seven were US citizens. And the birther myth has always been that Obama’s parents went there and returned by plane, but only one person came to the USA from Kenya in 1961 by plane and that person was, wait for it, NOT a US citizen. And Obama’s father did not go to Kenya in 1961 either (making it unlikely that his mother did, since travel late in pregnancy was rare, and even more rare without the husband going along). WND has proved with a FOI Act request that Obama senior stayed in Hawaii throughout 1961.
And the Kenyan government investigated the “born in Kenya” story, and found that it was not true.
“Jon Chessoni, a first secretary at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington, can’t understand why his office gets so many baseless questions about whether Barack Obama was born in Kenya.
“It’s madness,” said Chessoni on Monday.“His father, in 1961, would not even have been in Kenya. When this matter first came up, the Kenyan government did its research and confirmed that these are all baseless claims.””
Obama has a Hawaii birth certificate that says that he was born in Hawaii, in Kapiolani Hospital, and the officials of both parties in Hawaii have confirmed that fact. It is also confirmed by the birth announcement in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961, which were sent to the papers only by the DOH of Hawaii.
Obama’s birth announcement appeared in a section of the newspapers called Health Bureau Statistics. As the name indicates, and as the papers and the DOH also say, ONLY the DOH of Hawaii could send birth notices to the Health Bureau Statistics section of the paper. And the DOH only sent out those notices for children that it had issued birth certificates for, and in 1961 the DOH was not allowed to register the births of children who were not born in Hawaii.
Oh, and there is this:

Obama's birth certificate is not forged.
Only birther “experts” have called it forged, and they have not shown that they are even experts, much less fair and impartial. Those are two reasons why they are not believed by Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck or the National Review (or by Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan or Gingrich or Santorum or Huckabee).
One proof that Obama’s birth certificate is not forged is Obama’s short-form birth certificate.
Short-form birth certificates are created by a clerk reading the information from the document in the file, and filling out the computer form that generates the printed short-form birth certificate. The officials in Hawaii have confirmed that they sent a short-form to Obama. So, unless they are lying—and they were Republican officials–the only way that Obama’s birth certificate could have been forged was that it was forged in 2007 and slipped into the file just before the clerk looked at the file. That is not very likely, is it? And it is especially unlikely since at the time Obama was not even the candidate of the Democrats. He was still in the primaries at the time, and he was only a junior senator from Illinois.
And birther sites have not shown you these real experts.
Dr. Neil Krawetz, an imaging software analysis author and experienced examiner of questioned images, said:“The PDF released by the White House shows no sign of digital manipulation or alterations. I see nothing that appears to be suspicious.”
Nathan Goulding with The National Review:“We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. We looked into it and dismissed it.… I’ve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home.”
John Woodman, independent computer professional, who is a member of the Tea Party (who says that he hates Obama’s policies but found no evidence of forgery) said repeatedly in his book and in various articles on his Web site that the claims that Obama’s birth certificate was forged were unfounded.
Ivan Zatkovich, who has testified in court as a technology expert, and consultant to WorldNetDaily:“All of the modifications to the PDF document that can be identified are consistent with someone enhancing the legibility of the document.” And, by the way, when WND received Zatkovich’s article that said that he found nothing wrong with Obama’s birth certificate, WordNDaily simply did not publish it.
Jean-Claude Tremblay, a leading software trainer and Adobe-certified expert, who has years of experience working with and teaching Adobe Illustrator, said the layers cited by doubters are evidence of the use of common, off-the-shelf scanning software — not evidence of a forgery.“I have seen a lot of illustrator documents that come from photos and contain those kind of clippings—and it looks exactly like this,” he said.
Birthers’ claim that Obama’s birth certificate is false is well understood to be caused by their own motives—they hate Obama and would like to harm him.
And it is irrational (to say the very least) to think that Obama’s relatives had enough money (Obama’s grandfather was just a furniture salesman and his grandmother a low-level employee in a bank at the time; and his father came to Hawaii on a free flight) or crazy enough to spend LOTS of money on a long and expensive and risky (incidents of stillbirths were high at the time) overseas trip for their pregnant daughter—–when there were perfectly good hospitals in Honolulu, Hawaii.
(And the government of Kenya has said that it investigated the “born in Kenya” claim, and that it did not happen.)

Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.
During our friendly conversation, I asked their 12 year old daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President someday.
Both of her parents - liberal Democrats - were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"
She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."
Her parents beamed with pride!
"Wow...what a worthy goal!" I said. "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!" I told her.
"What do you mean?" she replied.
So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house."
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"
I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."
Her parents aren't speaking to me any more.

Yes, but the Lame Stream Media said she was a pro-Zimmerman protester. But what is sad is that the anti-Zimmerman protesters are in fact "Racists and Proud" but as so racists, they can't see that they are the racists.
"Racist and Proud" Sign Wrongly Used to Show Zimmerman Supporters Racist
Breitbart News: What does your sign mean?
Woman: This sign means that there are people here who are racist and apparently think that's OK. I'm not one of them. I'm being sarcastic.
Breitbart News: OK.
Fellow anti-Zimmerman Protestor: Yo. What she said.

Bush and Cheney unleashed the 4 Angels bound at the Euphrates River with the Arab Spring. Revelation 9:13-16:
Maybe Saddam hid the WMDs at the bottom of the Euphrates?
Bush and Cheney caused this Pandora's Box to open all over the Middle East just like 4 Star General Colin Powell predicted.
You are 100% correct saying that Regime Change in Iraq was United States policy.
FUNNY HOW BUSH AND CHENEY NEVER SAID THAT.
They kept with the phony baloney WMD story.

Bush and Cheney were warned two years before the financial meltdown and did nothing about it.
Maybe they both thought that they will be out of office by then.
No such luck.
GAO's Walker Sounds An Alarm:
Bush More Corrupt Than Nixon
Accountants don't often speak in revolutionary tones, but these days David Walker, head of the U.S. Government Accountability Office sounds a lot more like Thomas Paine than your average calculator-carrying CPA.
"History has shown that when America faces difficult challenges and when it rises to the occasion, anything is possible," he said in an interview. Yet “a fiscal cancer,” he said,“is growing within us, that if we don't treat, can have catastrophic consequences."

The Betrayal of Valerie Plame
By Larry C. Johnson CIA Ret. February 7, 2007 http://tinyurl.com/afwlp
A judge's rulings make it clear that Scooter Libby did lie to the grand jury, and that, yes, Valerie Plame was an undercover agent protected by federal law.
Valerie Plame was a covert intelligence officer covered by the Intelligence Officer's Identity Protection Act, and Lewis "Scooter" Libby lied to the grand jury. These two truths emerge from the opinion written by Judge Tatel, of the U.S. Court of Appeals, and released in February 2005. Thanks to a FOIA request by the Wall Street Journal we now have a more complete record, although key parts of his decision are still blacked out. Perhaps most of the media will now realize that they have been fed a pack of lies by the likes of Ken Mehlman, Victoria Toensing, Cliff May and others.
Tatel's opinion also is relevant to the current furor over "domestic spying" and whether reporters will have any ability to protect their sources. It certainly appears that Tatel would uphold the right of the reporters to protect sources who told them about illegal spying. Tatel's concludes his opinion that Judy Miller and Matt Cooper had to testify before the grand jury with the following:

“Fox News Makes You Stupid”
STUDY: Watching FOX News Makes You Stupid
A new study shows that viewers who get their news from Fox News are the most misinformed in the country.
World Public Opinion, a project managed by the Program on International Policy conducted a survey of American voters that shows that Fox News viewers are significantly more misinformed than consumers of news from other sources. What’s more, the study shows that greater exposure to Fox News increases misinformation.
So the more you watch, the less you know. Or to be precise, the more you think you know that is actually false.
It should be noted that the cablesphere did not do terribly well in general: "CNN and the broadcast network news operations fared only slightly better in many cases. Even MSNBC, which had the best record of accurately informing viewers, has a ways to go before it can brag about it."

Is it not good that Saddamn Hussein is dead? That millions of people like with far more freedom than they had been.
Like it or not, the free flow of oil from the Persian Gulf is a national interest and it is far more secure than it was when Saddamn was in power.
Oh, if you don't think oil is important, just fill your gas tank with water!!!
Again, you have zero evidence that Bush LIED about Iraq's WMD!!!

Oh, what happened to Colon Powell? He was drummed out of the Bush administration for withholding information from the president about the Amd. Joe Wilson trip to that African country that is spelled the same way the N-word is spelled.
Oh, he did resign without notice and Bush announced the next day that Condi Rice would replace him. If Bush did not know he would resign, why did he already have his replacement in his pocket?

And what has happened to Colon Powell since he resigned from the Bush administration? Nothing as both sides know he is a LIAR!
