There would be nothing to be gained from using an OCR software without using it to capture the text. There are much easier solutions to raw image capture than using an OCR package. If the desire were to archive the image, OCR would add a layer of complexity that was not needed. If the desire were to actually utilize the OCR in order to make the document searchable, the text would in all likelyhood be present in the pdf, which it is not.

Omnipage might create images where it thinks there is no text, but it wouldn't be this...convenient. It would be pieces in a more random format. I do believe.

The anti birthers can drink the koolaid all they want. My stand is that if he really did have a legitimate long form birth certificate he would have released it long ago. People do not hide things if they have nothing to hide. The fact that it took this long to release such a simple document says to me that they have had plenty of time to create a fake and intimidate anyone who knows the truth. If that document is real and not a recently created fake they could have avoided all the trouble by releasing it from the git go.
BTW and FYI - I do not consider myself a "birther". I am a constitutionalist. I believe that the constitution is one of the documents that truly defines us as a nation and when we subvert them we lose something of our national identity in the process.

You said we were squabbling about a BLACK man in the whitehouse.
You are trying to paint us as having problems with a Black man in the whitehouse.
That is slander, you are trying to slander us as racists.
Loll, you are racist, show me a post or thread you did asking for Bush, Reagan or Clintons birth certificate.
DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS POST. IT IS A DISINFO TRICK TO D3RAIL THE THREAD.
Accusations of racism is the first tool to put you on the defensive. It's such a suckers ploy. Ignore the child. He knows not what he does. I forgive him.
You are what you are.
Any one who is questioning, and making up fake stuff on his birth certificate is racist, except the ones that questioned at least 1 out of the last 43 presidents, and can prove it by showing me a thread that you did. So don’t judge what I say and how you are, judge what you listened to over the years in you’re up bringing and relative surroundings.
‘The apple don’t fall to far from the tree’
‘You are what you are’ ,
‘and it is what it is‘…Period !
No replies until proof on the same questioning of other presidents is presented, thank you.

Is there any chance that a moderator could go through this thread and delete all the posts that are completely off topic. All the stuff that amounts to bickering and charges and counter charges of racism etc.
Some people want to discuss this topic seriously.

Yes, I read your posts, but I have to see any proof that this is how the document in question was generated. Did I miss that. If so, apologies.

I read on WRH some interesting facts regarding the birth certificate.
In 1961, Kenya was not called Kenya. It was called "British East Africa Protectorate". It was not known as "Kenya" until 1963. So how could it have been listed as "Kenya" 2 years before it was even known as such?
The birth certificate lists the hospital that Obama was born in as "Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital". However in 1961 the hospital was called "Kauaikeolani Children's Hospital". The name change did not occur until 1978. A full 17 years AFTER he was born.
The first direct elections for Africans to the Legislative Council took place in 1957. Despite British hopes of handing power to "moderate" African rivals, it was the Kenya African National Union (KANU) of Jomo Kenyatta that formed a government shortly before Kenya became independent on 12 December 1963, on the same day forming the first Constitution of Kenya.

It's like a train wreck, I just can't turn away....
People, a little perspective.
Do you really think that Obama went through the primaries, through the election with a RABID GOP, and into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue without anyone checking his @#$% birth certificate?
You have to have a friggin license to catch a fish! You don't think McCain would've maybe had someone go on a fact finding mission when the rumor first surfaced?
I'm sorry, Republican parts of the family, this dog won't hunt. EVEN IF he is from MARS, this dog won't hunt. Find a voice, focus on issues, or prepare to be buried at the polls.

Because African denotes someone from Africa but not all Africans are black or negroes. Berbers for instance are not of the negro race so arent most somalians yemenites not to mention the afrikanners. So my question stands.
Why is his father discribed as african and not black?
