That information came from a book jacket.......whether his literary agent wrote it or Obama wrote it remains to be seen.....
"‘He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, has been a long time New York Times bestseller."

The information came from the Harvard Law Review in the first issue Obama published as Editor Obama stated in his own biography he was "born in Kenya".

So, back to the question:

Did Obama lie when he claimed to be born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie when he began to claim in 2007 he was born in Hawaii?

I'm certain he was referring to his draft notice, which would have been feasible as men were being drafted before 1969. He then said he enlisted in 1968. In my opinion, you should thank him for his service and move on.....

I tore the place up looking for my card. Buried too deep I guess. It's all academic anyway. I enlisted 10/21/68, 46 years ago. Take it or leave it.

Like I said, it remains to be seen. I was just pointing out from where that information surfaced. Frankly, I am amazed that we are still talking about this. We won't find out anything until after he leaves office...then pandora's box will be opened and all secrets will be revealed

Michael Dunn Trial: White Fear Matters More Than Black Lives
A Florida jury failed to convict yet another man for killing an unarmed black teenager. By their logic, Michael Dunn should have kept shooting and never asked questions.
Let's say you wanted to kill a black teenager. The reason doesn't matter. Maybe they looked too suspicious while walking home, or maybe they just wouldn't obey when you gave them a command. The goal, however, is to make the kill without getting convicted.
Well, if there's anything to take away from the trial of Michael Dunn, it's that—in the state of Florida—this is possible. You just need to be more thorough than Dunn could manage in his initial rage, when he killed Davis for being a "thug" who wouldn't bend to his will.
First, let's look at the trial. Yes, assuming a tough judge, the 47-year-old Dunn will go to prison for the rest of his life. But he won't be going to prison for Davis's death. On the charge of first degree murder in the killing of the unarmed teenager, the jury couldn't come to a decision. Indeed, if Dunn is facing a jail cell at all, it's because the jury found him guilty of attempted murder in the case of Davis' friends—after killing Davis, Dunn fired more shots into the vehicle. The jury has held him for shooting at three teenagers, but not for killing the fourth.
With that said, there's another way to look at this. If Dunn had killed Davis and his friends—or if he had killed Davis without shooting afterwards—then, by to the logic of the jury, he would have escaped punishment altogether. Which provides a guide, of sorts, for future killers, racist or otherwise. Claim fear, kill your target, and either do so away from people, or be sure to kill any witnesses. As long as you can portray the witnesses as also threatening, it seems like you could avoid jail time.
Which, you know, is insane, both in what it says about Florida's “Stand Your Ground” law—your best bet for getting away with murder is to shoot first and kill everyone—and what it says about the value of black lives vis-à-vis the state's legal system. According to the criminal justice system of Florida, you are right to fear African-American men, and if you decide to act on that fear with violence, then you stand a good chance of avoiding conviction, on account of a jury that—more likely than not—will sympathize with your fear.
The facts back this up. In states with “Stand Your Ground,” homicides with a white perpetrator and a black victim are most likely to be ruled "justifiable." By contrast, it is least likely—by a factor of ten—for black on white homicides to receive the same designation.
In fairness to Florida, it's not as if this—white fear as an adjudicating factor for black life—is a new thing. It's the force behind the lynching epidemic of the early 20th century, the racial terrorism of the 1920s, and the economic assaults—riots and redlining—of the post-war period. And for all of the real problems of the current moment, there was a belief that we had put that behind us. Which is one reason why this case is so jarring. No,“Stand Your Ground” isn't as egregious as the worst of Jim Crow, but there's no denying that it harkens to a time when you could shoot first and never ask questions, as long as the victim was a black person.
I think I speak for many black people when I say that's terrifying.

Black faces in Black and Blue clothing are considered terrorists in Chicago--they need to start treating them as such. You never lived in an area with bangers have you? Black faces wear their colors and tattoos proudly.

You know, man, I was riding around with my black motorcycle buddies the other day and we stopped to take a leak. I use a stall, urinals are too public and in the stall it said, "For a good time, call the Flack residence," and then a crude drawing of what appeared to be a girl with her dress pulled up over her head. What did that mean?

you don't understand what he said. he said he got a low draft number so he enlisted in 68....
the very first draft numbers were drawn in december, 1969.

he could not have gotten a low draft number in 1968. he could not have gotten any draft number in 1968.

if he lied about this, why would you believe he even served at all?

Family structure.
Of all the factors most predictive of economic mobility in America, one factor clearly stands out in their study: family structure. By their reckoning, when it comes to mobility,“the strongest and most robust predictor is the fraction of children with single parents.” They find that children raised in communities with high percentages of single mothers are significantly less likely to experience absolute and relative mobility. Moreover,“[c]hildren of married parents also have higher rates of upward mobility if they live in communities with fewer single parents.” In other words [] it looks like a married village is more likely to raise the economic prospects of a poor child.
http://acculturated.com/daily-scene/new-harva...
But very few address the real problem. Progressive liberals seem to think it's somebody else's fault too many young women have more children they can't afford.

Addressing the real problem might give some credibility to the other side as well which could change the present mentality of the country - victimization is good, big government is good, dependency is good, control is good.

As long as there's a rift and someone else can be blamed, progressive liberals will manipulate it for selfish political aspirations and, by doing so, bring down the country to where they think it ought to be...leaning more towards communism rather than liberty.

Oppression, manipulation and mind control through repeating lies and bullying are all communist tactics.

Liar.

The info was in a publication from Obama's publicist listing the various authors they represented. Obama's bio was not written by Obama.

A young black man thinks it's hilarious to smash the head of an old lady and knock her out.
Another shoots a man in front of his wife just to steal their car.
Another rapes a young girl living in his neighborhood while a small child is fatally shot in the crossfire of a gang shootout.
These often fatherless school dropouts frequently land in jail because they do not live in a culture that provides them with the guidance they need to make positive life choices. The culprit, we are told, is racism: that whites oppress blacks, preventing them from accessing opportunities that will allow them to rise above their circumstances. Yet, black Americans are successful at the highest levels of government, education, the military, pop culture, and the professions.
Rather than rage against whitey, black communities need to be strengthened from within and accept that young black men end up in prison for the crimes they commit -- usually in their own communities -- not because of the color of their skin.
If only more people were saying this, maybe the message would get through.

I love ties! My husband wears a suit and tie everyday and I always think he looks so handsome.
On the contrary, I love to see people dressing up, they still do in big cities, but I think we have become so casual in this country that people go to fine restaurants in shorts and flip flops.(we see that a lot in Florida) Call me old fashioned but I think there is something to be said for dressing well.

I see that you "elites" on the East Coast have been hammered by ice, sleet and snow while we surf bums here on the West Coast bake in sunshine without an ounce of water to quench our thirst!
