I am one of those who believe that Obama was born outside of the US. I am also searching for the Holy Grail. What's wrong with that?

"Most of those filing law suits to subpoena Obama's documents are lawyers, politicians and military people none who have ever been known to be conspiracy theorists on any subject. The attempt to put them in the same class with those who chase UFO sightings or those who are still looking for the Holy Grail is demeaning and ridiculous." ....

"The birth certificate in question is only one document that is conspicuously missing from Barack Obama's past. The list of documents is huge and it is one of the reasons all of them have been sought by various lawyers and interested parties."

No, Tbonezilla -- I don't agree with any of those conspiracy theories -- it very easily could have been just Obama's mother who knew about his birthplace.

Nice, Jake D. Here are a few more statements you'll agree with: aliens are sending radio signals to you through your fillings; the moon landing in 1969 was staged in a studio in Hollywood; the earth is 6,000 years old.

"Posted by: JakeD-- Obama is not POTUS"
