the conspiracy widens

First thing I want to say is, I don't cater to conspiracy theories. I think they make you look ignorant and naive. I'll listen politely if someone starts telling me about George Bush blowing up the Twin Towers or how the Air Force is covering up UFOs, and I'll just smile and say "let's wait until all the evidence is in". Cause sometimes you can be wrong, you know? It's like at first I didn't believe in global warming but over the years I've had to say something's got to be making our weather go all crazy.

So yeah, I believe you've got to keep an open mind. That's important, because I myself have some beliefs that others might call conspiracies, such as the fact that the Trilateral Commission controls every single move our corporate overlords make in their quest to establish a one world government. The thing is, these beliefs aren't conspiracies if they demonstrably true.

One of those wild-eyed conspiracy theories just moved a little closer to the truth for me today, and depending how it all shakes out, it could wind up in the realm of fact. I have always made light of those who say Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States and therefore isn't really the president. Dismissed them out of hand. As a matter of fact, I even had my own special name for them. I call them 'those crazy birthers'. I guess yours truly violated his own rule about always keeping an open mind.

I read a piece of news today that hit me like a 2"x4'. The Hawaii legislature has passed a measure that allows state officials to refuse to keep showing U.S. citizens copies of Obama's birth certificate. You heard me right. If the governor signs off on this, even if you write a letter on nice stationary saying you want to see it, they can ignore you. They won't even have to send you a rejection letter. Now why in the blazes would they take that attitude? You'd think that they'd be proud that the president is from Hawaii, but apparently not. Or, as is more likely the case, they have been directed from the highest level - maybe even the Trilateral Commission - to keep something hidden.

It gives you a hell of a pause, doesn't it? I know I'm not going to call any one a crazy birther again any time soon. I may even go to the birthers march on Washington May 29th. As a matter of fact, I will go, and I'll bet thousands of others will join me. Maybe millions if it's a nice weekend. I may even start watching Glenn Beck because this incident has really opened my eyes to how much I don't know about what's going on.

At this point I wouldn't believe Barack Obama was an American even if I held his birth certificate in my very own hands. I'm sure these people are master forgerers. My standard of proof just went way up. To even consider the possibility that Obama was born in Hawaii and isn't some foreign interloper, I'm going to need something way stronger. Like live video of his birth in Hawaii. At a pig roast beneath the coconut trees. With dancing girls wearing leis. Although even that could probably be forged.


  1. I'm going to the Afterbirthers March on May 30.

  2. Well, of course George Bush didn't blow up the Twin Towers. Everybody knows it was Dick Cheney.
