Holy moly there SOS, sorry, I mean, "AMERICAN, FRED".

Have you actually been following this discussion, actually paying attention, or do you just drop in, disgorge, and then flap away until the next feeding frenzy?

You said, "You would believe anything that was positive about Osama, err Obama true or not."

--- (by the way, I notice how you did the funny thing with the name -- good one!)

That is an interesting... no wait, not interesting... bizarre.... no something better, ummm, yes! Wacky. That is a wacky statement, indicating that you have taken the train to crazy town. As Homer use to say, a 'non-sequitur'. Homer was very polite. Chuantzu would have hit you with a stick.

I'ma gonna try to keep this short (being inordinately long-winded, that means long):
A Statement was made, on this bloggy, that there is no public record or proof that Obamasamaramalamadingdong (see I can do it too!) was born in the US. Guy said, "All I can find ...".

... I dint say Obama was great. Dint say "good". Didnt say "right for da' US". Didnt say bad. Didnt say squat. Just said, in so many words, "duh! Stoopid."

That's when you, "AMERICAN, FRED", kicked the door in. Warned me about the wacky wiki. Told a fairy tale about your Outer Limits-like ability to control the "wikipedia". And finished up with something that sounded like an assertion that there was "REAL PROVEN RELIABLE sources" out there, somewhere, that proved the wiki wrong. That is, about where and when Obama was born -- remember, that's what we (well, I can't vouch for you, because frankly, you "maybe not so good" to actually follow a conversation), but I, was talking about -- where and when da' man was born.

And now, you launch into this diatribe where you take this Deluxe Tour of Crazy Town. I don't dispute or affirm where you wandered. I just wonder why the hell you went there?

So, NOW! Now you say you don't care where he was born, do ya? Good for you, give da' "AMERICAN, FRED" a cookie.

But, if that is what you feel, then why, in the name of all that's holy dint you keep your big fresser shut? Oh, there's somebody over here talking about commodities futures, I think I'll go over and tell them the truth about the Kennedy Assassination. Oh, here's somebody talking about GM vs Ford, think I'll go jump into their conversation and tell them how ignorant they are about nautical limits and the cannon shot rule. Here's somebody talking about one thing, I'll barge in and act like a crazy homeless person!

Maybe I could have been more succinct. Saying that nobody knows where a presidential candidate was born is incredibly ignorant. Oh, but that warn't you, "AMERICAN, FRED", was it. But, ya fingers was itchy and you couldn't stay out, even though you had nothing substantive to say about the Actual Subject, you whaled in with a 'you can't trust wikipedia' (in and of itself not an entirely incorrect thing to say) but also adding something about "REAL PROVEN RELIABLE sources", without once mentioning what, a. the "REAL PROVEN RELIABLE sources" say about Obama's birthdate and birthplace, and b. what the hell these "REAL PROVEN RELIABLE sources" even are, and then, launching into some kinda free association rant about everything that has nothing to do with the subject of the discussion.

And, I'm real sorry, this is gonna kinda hurt your feelings, I know, and your gonna wanna tell me some more koolaid-free stuff about the Secret Muslim, Baby Killer, Black Panther, Abolitionist, Commie Appeasing Nazi Islambo-Fascista Magic Negro, you won't be able to contain yourself, and I just feel real bad about stirring you about. Because, whatever else you have to say that isn't about the Actual Subject, is just more verbal diarrhea. Keep in mind, I dint come lookin' for you, "AMERICAN, FRED".

I really don't care or see any thing interesting or worthy of discussion in anything you said this time, other than the fact that it missed the target by so far that it makes it ... quite humorous. Hence, my humorous retort.

... Conclusion - the real short one: anyone who says it is unknown where and when Barack Obama was born is dumber than a sackful of hammers. Period. I am not taking a position for Barack Obama. I'm taking a position against stupidity. Sheesh. Anyone who responds to this post talking about anything other than what this post is about, well, you do the math.

PS: "AMERICAN, FRED", I was an American before you were born!


Well, it's at least a pretty good bet. And, "REAL PROVEN RELIABLE sources" will likely attest to the "Fact"! Better go see what my wikipedia entry says...

PPS: that odd! despite "AMERICAN, FRED"s near Dumbledore-like powers, Barack Obama's wikipedia entry still says the same thing. Curse you Steven Colbert! If only the "REAL PROVEN RELIABLE sources" weren't so darned hard to find!...
