The first thing I’d like to do is to thank Judge David O. Carter, United States District Judge (Central District of CA) for his decision to grant the United States Attorneys who, acting on behalf of President Barack Hussein Obama their motion to dismiss (MTD.)
There are some great blogs that tell the whole story and link to the decision. There’s Obama Conspiracy Theories and Politijab ( a favorite of mine.) The other two extraordinary blogs on the subject of Orly Taitz and her ilk, are Oh For Goodness Sake as well as the definitive “birther blog”, Bad Fiction.
The second thing about the “birthers” I wanted to mention was just how out of touch with reality they really are. Huffpo has more…
Hunch, a new website that helps people make decisions based on survey questions, found some interesting stuff when they crunched the numbers on site users who described themselves as “birthers”.
Asked a series of political questions, 12 percent of Hunch users said they did not believe the president was born in the United States. (About 2,200 Hunch users answered the question.) The Hunch team decided to see how they responded to other queries.
A third of them didn’t vote in the last presidential election. Forty-four percent of them believe that the Big Bang didn’t really happen and 47 percent don’t believe in global warming. Birthers are also 19 percent more likely to believe in UFOs and alien visits to earth and 50 percent more likely to believe in alien abductions.
Interestingly, birthers are 115 percent more likely to think that human beings are naturally evil rather than good.
