in response to reader comment: Don't take Wiki as the absolute truth there Freddy

You are so right SOS. I mean, how can we know anything? I have four copies of my own Birth Certificate, and they are all different! Which one is the real copy? How can I know? I have one that has my feet's prints on it from the Hospital I was allegedly born in . One from the County I was allegedly born in. One from the State Records department in the Capitol of the state I was allegedly born in, and one that is even business card sized. And golly, all of them could be fakes. I might not even be a real American. Though I have used each one at some time in the past to prove just that.

Speaking of, could you share with us, from you store of knowledge, how it is that you know, from "REAL PROVEN RELIABLE sources", that John McCain was even born in America. If one guy can fake his birth certificate (and his wikepedia entry ;%), then how do we know that any of these guys are American? I mean, how do we know it is even the real John McCain, and not some plastic surgery'd Manchurian Candidate?

All silliness aside, let's cut to the quick here, SOS. There is no evidence that you would accept as accurate, because you do not wish to... you are still more capable of discovering hidden truths than even the entire DNC. The entire RNC. The Federal Elections Commission. The United States Congress. The United States Senate. The entire John McCain Campaign.... [weeks later]... My Grandma, and my little dog Serj. Somehow, you imagine that the "fact" that this guy cannot possibly prove that he is an American has somehow slipped past all of these august personages, but, glory be to God, blessed assurance, we have you to point out the oh so obvious to us.

Sheesh. I think Bugs Bunny put it best when he said, "(...)".


BTW, that's "Froiderick" to you, buddy.

PS: Let me know when you have changed Barack Obama's wiki-p entry to reflect the "truth" that nobody knows when or where he was born. Let me know how easy it was. I believe that only God is 'absolute truth'. When the subject is one that is suffused with import, like, say, a presidential candidate, then the wiki-p entry is sufficient to common truth. While its veracity is not 'absolute', it is a cut above the rantings of a blog-blogger named SOS, or a random yahoo named Freddy.
