I was reading about obama's mom and I came across this web site wapedia.mobi... I don't know how reliable this site is but when you get half way down it says obama lived in U.S till he was six then moved to Indonesia, weird thing is she had to get him correspondence courses in English? Also his dad was already married when he married obama's mom so I'm pretty sure her marriage was not valid which would make him a bastard,all the more reason to keep quite about his birth.

Young children who live in a foreign country are more likely to learn the majority language and forget a mother tongue if they do not study it formally. Look at how many "native" Spanish speakers wind up studying it in high school or college because they cannot properly speak it or read it. I took Spanish for several years and the native speakers rarely were among the best students! His mother did the right thing.

Right through from grade one to year twelve, every student in Australia learns English. You can't pass any year level here without a pass in English. And, just in case Americans don't know, in Australia we speak English.

If any of my kiddies was living/studying in a foreign country, I'd make darned sure they still took their English classes. Otherwise they'd be way behind their classmates when they got back home.

Wouldn't you?

Whether Obama's mother was married or not it entirely irrelevant. It says nothing about the man. It's nothing to be ashamed of, either. It's between his mother and God, if anyone.

It seems you're just looking for anything to try to nail Obama, and don't hesitate to stoop to such mean-spirited attacks as this. I ask you, "why"? What does that have to do with who Obama is now? If you don't like the man, just say so. If you've got a reason to dislike him, then share it. But to pick at things like his mother's marital status is just petty and irrelevant.

If you believe the story is a lie please ask a Mod to close the thread.
It has no business in *Breaking Political News* - especially if even you, the OP believe it's a fabricated story.

We could use some correspondence courses here in the Bluegrass, it seems the schools don't teach English very well.

I was in Germany my first time. I met up with some people who became my good friends. Hell, I just studied a bit of German before I went there. I could say the word for brown, in German, much better than a 6 year old who was born in Germany and knew only German. What's up with that? We all had a good laugh about that. lol.

So a little kid is living in a country where his native language is not the norm. So he needs classes to learn his own language better. Yeah, so?

Last time I checked kids in the US also take courses in English, even in college. Even more odd is some of these kids never learned a second language besides English yet they still take these classes.

As far as his mom being a teacher so people think its weird he learned elsewhere. Does a person who is a cook never go out to eat? Does a doctor never send his/her kids to see a specialist?

In many countries people study their own native language. At least in my country. You have classes of your native language before you start studying foreign languages. Actually reading and writing your own native language is the first thing taught at school in most countries.

Many ATS writers would surely find classes in English useful based on spelling mistakes such as "Marshall Law". Who is the Marshall Law who is coming to your town, does he wear a black hat or a white hat?

Maybe Obama is such a great speaker since he was studying English at age of six. Many children cannot read and write at that age. Many people cannot write or read properly even at age of 16, 26 or 36.

Savvy? It doesn't mean that a man is an evil foreigner even if he is studying his native language...

English is an official language in Kenya too, so his father would have spoken it at a young age too... It was a colony of Britain until 1963.

Silo, don't be a jerk. This site is about conspiracy theories, is it not? True, this story probably belongs on another board and not breaking political news, but it doesn't deserve to be closed simply because you don't agree with the subject matter.

Edit for correction
