I see MUCH talk of "evidence" and people saying they have RESEARCHED something, but I have not seen one bit of proof that hasn't been falsified...
Reading a right-wing birther blog is not doing research, honestly. Orly Taitz, oral hygienist with a law degree from an unaccredited online
"school", and Jon Corsi, who's past is even shadier then Orly's, these people are your figureheads of truth? Really? Neither have an OBVIOUS
agenda, nor are they trying to SELL anything, are they? Nah...
I'm all for anything that would help, eh, put our federal government in it's place (under the total control of the PEOPLE) but promoting lies,
deception, and just outright BS IS NOT the way to go about it. ANY independent survey into "birther" claims reveals holes in their
arguments/proof/whatever large enough to drive an airbus thru. Americans have a SERIOUS problem of taking some form of authority's word over
actually finding out for themselves, whether it be what the mainstream government tells them, or some right-wing/left-wing talking head says, or what
they read on the internet.
I blame our public schools. It's education fashioned on a pizza delivery model.. the teacher, the pizza delivery dude, delivers the "pizza" (the
curriculum). I was an extreme nerd for a while in school, in AP courses in highschol, a member of PACE in middle school, until I woke up one day and
looked at all the "smart" kids surrounding me, the ones at the top of the Class (I also went to one of the top ten US highschools, according to Time
magazine, *gag*) and I realized, they were not really smart, they were just diligent. They were good at filling out "paperwork" and never
questioning anything their "taught". Hell, the kid who ended up graduating top of our class used to cheat off of me in AP C++, and AP Calculus, he
wasn't a very bright kid, really, but hell, he could fill out a piece of paper with the best of them.
America has fallen from it's "great heights". We're breeding more lazy, self-entitled, willfully ignorant little bastards, and you can see it ALL
AROUND YOU, EVERYDAY. I'm getting off topic, though, and getting a bit angry, but I can see a direct correlation between our public education
system, our culture, and our serious social issues. Just like I laughed at the left when Obama was chanting "Change!" (he really just wanted the
little change left in our pockets to give it to wall st) I laugh at the right for falling into the "birther" TRAP. that's right, folks, IT"S A
TRAP! Shame on us. May god forgive us for our ignorance, and the sins committed against our own.
