Back from the anti-birther conference

Coming back from this past weekend’s anti-birther conference, I thought about what I might write on the blog. It’s a difficult problem because the most important thing about the conference was who was there, and I’m not going to say anything about that beyond affirming that it was pretty much folks like me who run web sites or comment on them. The commentary was not much different from what you find on web sites like this and others linked in the Good column at the bottom of this page.

While not naming names, I will characterize the whole group as totally excellent. These are sophisticated, smart, thoughtful and intensely interesting folks with widely-varying backgrounds and political views. We had professionals and artists, funny and friendly folks, and people with heroic personal stories.

In addition to receiving the De Facto Juris Doctor Pro Hac Vice degree, I got this really keen Obama bobble head doll. Thanks!

If anything characterized the discussion, is was a certain bemusement about the birthers and why they do what they do. Orly Taitz was the most-mentioned as the subject of unanswered questions–perhaps we should hold the next conference on the west coast, and invite her to come and explain herself!

    The psychiatrist would need a psychiatrist of their own, after dealing with that train wreck.

    Does it happen to say “made in Kenya” at the bottom? If yes, then OMG this is it birthers will win. *lol*

    One if the sad things about Orly is, if she was invited to speak to a group that considers her to be, at best, a fool, she’d go anyway. She doesn’t care who she’s talking to, as long as she’s talking.

    But what we, the great unwashed need to know is…were The Illuminati (nudge wink) present?

    Actually it says “Designed in Hawaii” and “Made in China.”

    Indonesia is not that far from China.

    But the big question is what was the wine like, and did you have the chicken or the lamb?

    Did George Soros brief everyone on our latest benefits package, and upcoming pay raises?

    Who cares about pay raises? I hope you got your ticket to the Illuminati Ark or you will look quite stupid when our beloved Alien Overlords invade Earth on 12-21-12.

    Every year he’s updating the benefits package which means another online training and more forms. It’s almost as if this was a job.

    That’s another memo you missed!

    The AO’s invasion starts at 9:26 on the morning of March 14, 2015. But only in America.

    Start stocking up on pie now.

    That’s just pie in the sky.

    December 12th, 2016, is the actual end of the world – our beloved Alien Overlords have obviously given themselves precisely 4 years (“four more years, four more years!”) between invasion and elimination of the planet.

    (One strawberry Taitz pie for everyone who understands the reference.)

    Of course I am irrefutably correct with the 12-21-12 date – after all, I’ve never said the invaders would come openly with huge spaceships, did I? I’m not Harold Camping. 😉
