The decisions being made by our politicians today a short-term, selfish, myopic, and greedy. Conspiracy or not, they are setting us up to fail, including our children, our economy, our foreign relationships, our future even! This isn't about left vs right, or liberals versus conservatives anymore, and it hasn't been for the past 50 years. They have all turned into thieves and criminals. No one cares about the American public anymore but the American public.

You're on my troll list and are from far back and a long time ago. I should never have responded to you the first time on this thread but I hadn't realized I'd noted you much earlier and for that, this was my fault. I hope the mods let this note stand because I said all this to you in U2U last night and still, your next post here is another one, to me, by name and in a tone meant to provoke a hard response.
Please... Leave me be, as I've made so clear it hurts, I am going to leave you be. Forever. There are less than a dozen names on that list and my profile shows it for the world to see, under Foes. Lets have this be our last exchange. We'll both be better for it and the others on ATS don't need to see the sniping and fighting. It's not good for anyone involved.
Peace..and I'm off for my last comment on this matter. Sorry for the side problem on this thread everyone..It was my bad for becoming involved.edit on 28-8-2012 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)
Trouble is,those who desire the kind of power we see being exerted over us today are always conspiring for more power,and they have come way too far.

The citizenship of the POTUS does indeed matter. Even if it's a corporation as you suggest. The amount of loyalty of the POTUS (or CEO of the corporation) towards America determines how well the country (or corporation) will function. If the POTUS (or CEO) isn't totally dedicated to 'America First' ... then the country (or corporation) will suffer. Someone who isn't an American citizen or who has dual citizenship could easily have split loyalties. Split loyalties are bad for America (or corporations). So yes .. citizenship matters.

With even a rudimentary knowledge you should realize that Photoshop is not what created the layers. Those layers of type were created because it was a copy of a copy, and the OCR is what created them. Photoshop has nothing to do with it, its the scanning that was done to put it online in the first place.
Mixed raster content, or MRC, is a method for compressing images that contain both binary text and continuous-tone components, using image segmentation methods to improve the level of compression and the quality of the rendered image. By separating the image into components with different levels of compressability, the most efficient and accurate compression algorithms for each type can be used. Generally, MRC is wrapped into a hybrid file format which supports markup language such as XML, allowing for multiple images and the directives to properly render each to be stored within a single file.
MRC uses a multi-layered, multi-resolution imaging model to encode compound raster images. The basic 3-layer MRC model represents a color raster image as two multi-level or color image layers (Foreground and Background) and a binary image layer (Mask). The Mask layer describes how to reconstruct the final images from the other two layers. When the Mask layer pixel value is 1, then the corresponding pixel from the Foreground layer is selected for the final image; when it is 0, then the corresponding pixel from the Background layer is selected. An illustration of the imaging model is shown in Fig. 1. The foreground plane is essentially poured through the mask plane onto the background plane. The basic 3-layer model is MRC’s most common form. The imaging model, however is composed of basic elementary plane pairs: foreground and mask. Given a background, a foreground plane is imaged onto it through the mask plane composing a new background image. Another foreground layer can be images onto this new background through another mask plane and the process can be repeated several times. The extended MRC model, then, allows for several planes while relying on foreground-mask pairs.
Once the original single-resolution image is decomposed into layers, each layer can be processed and compressed using different algorithms as shown in Fig. 3. The image processing operations can include a resolution change or color mapping. The compression algorithm and resolution used for a given layer would be matched to the layer’s content, allowing for improved compression while reducing distortion visibility. The compressed layers are then packaged in a format, such as TIFF-FX or as an ITU-T MRC data stream for delivery to the decoder. At the decoder, each plane is retrieved, decompressed, processed (which might include scaling) and the image is composed using MRC imaging model.
A page may be represented as one, two, three or more layers, depending on its content. For example, a page consisting of a picture could use the background layer only. A page containing black-and-white text could use the mask layer, with the foreground and background layers defaulted to black and to white.
You're suggesting the State Government of Arizona (and other states for that matter) just missed this having been released in 2008 in a proper, legal and functional form. That was not Sheriff Joe who compelled Hawaii to certify this. It was the State of Arizona. His deal is a separate matter and running parallel to what the State was doing.
...Hawaii *DID* properly and legally certify the man has one. They did legally and properly certify it actually established his presence as a newborn on American Soil.
I can wonder about the fraud they pawned off in April of 2011 but wondering is all it amounts to until additional inquiries start for the sake of an accurate historical record of this period in America.
At SOME POINT....the real and proper document will be seen and will be known. We'll ALL know what this crap was all about then. His being born on American soil WAS NOT IT, obviously, as Arizona established to their legal satisfaction..
If he released a Birth Cert in 2008, you will have a link or Screen Cap image of that 2008 release, correct? I'm sorry I won't take anyone's "word" on this in a debate.
