Obama’s Birth Certificate: New Conspiracy Theories
[ Social Media]

It has been a rough week for the Birthers.  After 2 and 1/2 years of demands that President Barack Obama release his long-form birth certificate to prove that he is, in fact, an American citizen qualified to serve as Commander-in-Chief – he did just that.  He released it.

Presented with the document for which they had been asking, they have now begun to do what any good conspiracy theorists would do – reject its legitimacy.  Because as we are all aware, America loves a conspiracy.  And conspiracies never really die, they evolve.

Here is a culling of many of the new problems that the Birthers have with the long-form birth certificate.  For all specifics, please refer to the (completely unaltered) copy of the document below.

  • Let’s start at the top.  What the hell is a “certificate of live birth?”  That’s what the old short-form one said.  Can this man not just provide a “birth certificate?”  Not the same thing.  Seriously.
  • If you look at the left side, it is obviously copied from a bound book.  The background outside the book parameters matches up too seamlessly with the book page pattern.  Shopped.
  • It’s missing everything that a birth certificate should have – the birth weight, a cute little baby-footprint and an official seal.  What gives?
  • Obama was “born” on August 4th, 1961.  The date the certificate was accepted is August 8th, 1961.  What’s the hold-up, guys? Hiding something?
  • There are two small, very faint Xs above the twin and triplet boxes at the top.  Does Obama have identical siblings.  Are they all Obama? Are all 3 of them running the country?  Is it like Multiplicity?
  • In the “Father’s Race” box, it says “African.”  If this was really written in 1961, the race would say “Colored” or “Negro.”  And while we are on the subject of races, the type for the mother’s race “Caucasian” is way too perfect.  No typewriter in 1961 could type so perfectly.
  • Under hour of birth, the “M” in “P.M” is a different font.  Might as well be in Comic Sans.
  • The box next to the name of the attendant is all smudged and stuff.
  • There has to be something to the barely visible vertical numbers on the right side of the certificate.  Looks like something 991.
  • The doc who signed the certificate died 8 years ago.  Oh, how convenient.  Looks like we’ll never get him to talk.

Ok, that was fun.  But the conspiracy sub-conspiracy that is beginning to gain to most traction on the interwebs is the so called “layers” conspiracy.  Apparently, if you open up the birth certificate in Photoshop or something similar, you can see and are able to manipulate multiple layers.  This obviously means that someone shopped the certificate and screwed up the part of forgery where you make it not look like a forgery.  Videos have hit YouTube as demonstration of the “layers” conspiracy.  Check it out:

As Gawker points out, it truly is best left to a YouTube commenter to explain this phenomenon:

It’s called OCR (optical character recognition). Acrobat and many scanners do this by default. It detects letters and words on the page and allows you to add selectable text to the document without having to type it in manually.

Notice how when you hide a layer, it’s white behind it? If it was truly forged, you wouldn’t see any of the background missing. It’s white because it doesn’t know what’s behind the text BECAUSE THE TEXT WAS THERE WHEN IT WAS SCANNED.

Beliefs on Barack Obama’s political stances and policies aside, you have to be amazed by the persistence of this group.  Their ability to keep finding points of contention even when presented with the very evidence they demanded is staggering.  Who said Americans never work hard at anything?

Thanks to Buzzfeed, Gawker and Smoking Gun.

      Like the Youtube commentator said.. if this was a photoshopped document, when you hide the text layers it would show the green patterned background bc it would be layered… not leave a white silhouette.

      Whether you want to believe the government faked the birth cert is up to you… but this video does not prove this being a photoshop document.

    Get your very own Hawaiian birth certificate at www.proveyourbirth.com

    Exact replica certificate, personalized with your name and birth date, makes a great conversation starter and is all the proof you need to fend off annoying billionaires and others suspicious about where you were actually born

    Americans are breathing a collective sigh of relief now that the White House has released a copy of President Barack Obama’s official long-form birth certificate.

    The release of the certificate, issued by the proud state of Hawaii, ended several years of controversy and speculation about the president’s actual country of birth.

    Now you, too, can end any controversy or speculation surrounding your actual country of birth with your very own personalized long-form Hawaiian birth certificate — the exact same document President Obama displayed to silence his critics and send “birthers” running for cover.

    “Obtaining your personalized long-form Hawaiian birth certificate is as easy as visiting www.proveyourbirth.com and typing in a few key details about your birth,” says the Web site’s administrator, Jay Kamhi. “After a small $4.95 charge to your credit card, within minutes you’ll be emailed your very own personalized certificate bearing the signature of the very same doctor who attended the birth of our 44th president, officially documenting your status as a Natural Born US Citizen.

    Kamhi says the management at www.proveyourbirth.com acknowledges that the long-form Hawaiian birth certificate they are offering for sale may not be legal to use in some states as proof of age, for obtaining licenses to pilot commercial aircraft, for the rental of postal boxes, or for most other purposes.

    “It’s our belief that should an individual decide to use his personalized long-form Hawaiian birth certificate for any purpose whatsoever, especially in connection with running for national public office, he or she should do so only with the advice of an attorney and under proper adult supervision,” says Kamhi.

  • kaye

    And….where is the religion box that is on all of our birth certs that were born in the sixties??

    • NOT a Douche

      Oh shut up.

      BTW, I think that’s all that needs to be said to the birthers anymore. They will believe what they want.

    • granite

      There is NO religion box on Hawaii long-form birth certificates, as the already published long-form birth certificate of the Nordyke Twins shows. Search on Nordyke Twins, and you will see the image of their BC on the WND site. A comparison of their BCs with Obama’s shows that theirs also was called Certificate of Live Birth, the name of the hospital was exactly the same, and there is NO space where it lists the religion of the parents or the child.

      Yes, it did list race, and it showed that Obama’s father entered that he was of the African race (which is exactly the same as was on the short-form birth certificate). The explanation is that the officials in Hawaii have repeatedly said that people can list their race anyway that they want to. And, I have read that it was common among African exchange students in the 1960s to describe their race as African.

  • Tiago

    Really? For real? this is really your evidence that Obama was not born in the US? Wow… this is ridiculous…. a joke

      Not *my* evidence, but yes, this is what is being discussed on the interwebs.

  • Rob

    Scans like that create a selectable text layer. This is not such a layer, this it is not such a scan. And the white of the paper was removed for no good reason. Moreover, the layer contains script-hand written parts, not possible to be added to such a layer from such a scan.

    • NOT a Douche

      oh shut up.

      You don’t know what you’re talking about.

    This is ridiculous. My birth certificate says “Certificate of Live Birth.” My certificate was also accepted a different day than my birth. I also do not have a footprint on my bc.

    This is ridiculous… get over it, people.

  • paul

    This a big stink over nothing, My youngest daughtrs birth certificate says “live birth” while my oldest daughters says certificate of live birth. I was born june 28th 1971. my certificate wasnt recieved for record until july 15th. As for african instead of negro or colored bein on his certificate, find out how many native africans from that time period have that on thiers. before you start assuming. plus lets not forget hawaii wasnt even 5yrs old when obama wad born.

    • http://www.ientry.com/ Josh Wolford

      unfortunately, as we have learned from many other conspiracies – presentation of facts does not always ensure dropping of the issue.

  • SaltLaker

    The only copy I ever had of my birth certificate also says “Certificate of Live Birth” at the top. I was born in 1959 in California. It must be the format used at the time as I was born here as were my parents and my “Certificate of Live Birth” was accepted for obtaining a driver’s license and passport.

    • Sue

      The fact that Obama spent millions to hide the birth certificate – the certification of live birth is not a birth certificate or certificate of birth and does not prove where someone was born — from attorneys like Gary Kreep and Philip J Berg shows that either Obama is hiding something or that he is insane. Why would a sane person pretend he has something to hide?

      • http://windpowerfacts.net Glenis

        He possibly felt – like everyone who doesn’t live in the USA – that the whole thing was undignified and didn’t deserve an answer. You think that he wasn’t checked out by every agency in your nation before he ran for President?

        I can’t believe you people are so gullible and can’t think for yourselves. You’ve just had the biggest showman in history telling you Obama wasn’t born in the US, and you let it gain momentum and believed him.

        Then Trump tries to slur Obama’s academic record. That would be because American Presidents have always been so well educated? Really? – think about your last 5 or 6 presidents. LOL

      • granite

        Obama didn’t spend millions or even hundreds of thousands or even anything at all on hiding his birth certificate because, wait for it, birthers never brought a lawsuit against him JUST for his birth certificate. They feared that if they had, Obama would simply provide the court with a copy of his short-form Certification of Live Birth and the court would have accepted it because it is the OFFICIAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE OF HAWAII.

    typo* my youngest daughtrs says certificate of live burth, while my oldest daughters reads “birth certificate”

  • David

    For the sake of argument, if nothing else, let’s assume that this is real. Doesn’t this raise other important issues?

    Why wait till now? Why not during the run for his first term, instead of waiting till candidate Obama is seeking his second term? Why didn’t Obama show this to prove his eligibility 4 years ago? Remember, we are assuming it is real. Why spend all that time, money and energy trying to keep it hidden?

    Doesn’t the constitution clearly have requirements for the office of president? Doesn’t the president takes an oath of office with words indicating that he will protect and uphold the constitution of the United States?

    So, again assuming this is real, how then do we reconcile Obama’s long delay with the idea that he is a good president, determined to do what he promised in his oath of office? What does this say about his character? What does it say for his respect of the constitution? Isn’t this the man who promised us transparency?

    I hope someone else can come up with a way to reconcile this, because I am having trouble keeping the faith. (Wasn’t it Mark Twain who once defined faith as, “believing what you know ain’t so” ?)

    • Michael

      David:

      I had similar concerns about this, but was brought on to the idea that this demand for a birth certificate is rooted in racism.

      Assuming that the short form birth certificate that Obama provided is the same form previous Presidents presented to prove their qualifications to be President, why was is so important for Obama to show his long form? Is there some other issue to pinpoint that he needed to show this separate birth certificate other than simply people didn’t want to believe that he was a legitimate citizen? If there isn’t, that that is truely racist, and it sucks that Obama had to even do this.

      However, if the long form is the standard document presented by presidents, then I agree with you that Obama’s lack of showing this is certainly suspicious and not cool. Would be great to see some sort of references to address this issue.

      • David

        Be careful with the racist name calling. It may open up issues that we would rather leave untouched. Yes, they have their racists too, but wasn’t the traditional purpose of the KKK to keep blacks and republicans out of office? And we love Planned Parenthood, because they tend to vote right (er left actually, but still great patronage). But lets not dig too deep into it’s eugenics history.

        And citizenship didn’t come up first with Obama. Didn’t we make McCain prove his citizenship? In fairness, there are a whole lot of people on the other side of the political fence, who would be ecstatic to trade Obama and Biden for Rice and Powell. (In either order.) So lets not pretend that they are all racists, while we are clean as the driven snow.

        Frankly, Bill Clinton was clearly the best president of the last four. And that’s about as far back as I can remember clearly. But, in spite of what our press may say, Clinton was clearly far more transparent than Obama. Everything Bush did wrong, Obama seems to be repeating. Obama is Bush squared! Boy do I miss Bill Clinton. Any chance we could amend the constitution so he could serve another term?

        As for Obama, we need to dump him before he kills our party.

        Re: “However, if the long form is the standard document presented by presidents, then I agree with you that Obama’s lack of showing this is certainly suspicious and not cool. Would be great to see some sort of references to address this issue.”

        Since NO president or presidential candidate before Obama ever showed his or her birth certificate (except perhaps Eisenhower, who had it on file at an election office), Obama did more than all the previous presidents and candidates. There is no requirement that a president or candidate show a birth certificate. If someone decides to show her his birth certificate, the right one to show is of course the OFFICIAL one, and the official one was the one that Obama showed two and a half years ago, and whose facts were confirmed repeatedly by three Republican officials in Hawaii.

        • David

          Re: “There is no requirement that a president or candidate show a birth certificate.” You are absolutely correct.

          However, there is a requirement that one be “a natural born Citizen” and a birth certificate might be evidence of meeting that requirement.

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Article_Two_of_the_United_States_Constitution

          And when the birthers were asking for the long form a few years ago, didn’t he deny that it existed? Why didn’t he just release it then? Why does he have to drag this on? Is this how one behaves in a transparent manor? Is this the behavior of someone who is conciliatory? Is it any wonder people see him as manipulative and don’t trust him.

          And didn’t Bill and Hillary make their tax records public? That seems quite a bit more personal and private than a birth certificate. And while the constitution does require citizenship of the president, I’m not aware of any requirement that they have actually paid taxes. It might or might not be illegal, but unlike citizenship, it isn’t constitutionally required.

          Of course, it’s a lot easier to call everyone a racist, than it is to admit that our man might have been a bit more forthcoming. But the truth would seem to be that a good many of our friends and neighbors dislike the president more for his socialist policies than for his skin color. And calling them all racists, isn’t going to help us win at the voting booth. Frankly, if that’s what’s required to “keep the faith”, then Mark Twain was right and I’m not sure I want to “believe what I know ain’t so” about my friends and neighbors.

          If we want the party to survive, we have to get rid of the extremists and move to more centrist/moderate politics. We need more candidates like Bill Clinton. And we need to be more patient. After all, we have the schools on our side. So by pushing each generation a little at a time, we can end up where we want to.

          • granite

            Obama never said a thing about the long-form birth certificate, which has always existed. It is the original birth certificate, and there is still a copy of it in his birth certificate files in Hawaii, as two Republican officials have confirmed.

            However, the official birth certificate was and is the right one to show. Obama showed that about two and half years ago. The official birth certificate of Hawaii is known as the Certification of Live Birth. That is the one that thousands of people use to get their US passports every year.

            No other president showed ANY birth certificate. Obama did, the official one, and THREE Republican officials in Hawaii confirmed the facts on it.

            Moreover, there were notices of Obama’s birth in the Hawaii newspapers. And these were not ads that could have been placed by relatives because Hawaii newspapers did not accept birth notice ads in those days. They only took the official birth notices that the government sent out, and the government sent them out only for births in Hawaii.

    • NOT a Douche

      He released a birth certificate before the general election. That people can’t accept this or don’t understand this just means they don’t understand what that certified vital record documented. Blame ignorance, not Obama.

    • granite

      The reason that he waited is that the Certification of Live Birth, the birth certificate that he already showed, is the OFFICIAL birth certificate–meaning that it is the one that he should show. It is the one that everyone in Hawaii gets these days, and it is the only one that Hawaii sent out (except in the unusual case of Obama) to anyone since 2001. Thousands of people use it to get their US passports every year.

  • http://www.google.com I am Obama

    we need jobs!
    We need to stop the wars!
    We need to stop the gas prices from going up!
    We need to stop the credit card companies from destroying the middle class!
    We need to stop the banks from abusing the people!
    We need to lower taxes!
    We need to really understand what democracy is in this country!
    We need our privacy back from all the social networks like the CIA controlled Facebook!

    At this point I don’t care where Obama was born, one thing I know for sure, he has not done anything for me or this country.. In fact I am still trying to figure out, why this man got the nobel peace price?? when he never ended any war and in fact got us in to new ones!!

  • ellen

    Re: “What the hell is a “certificate of live birth?” That’s what the old short-form one said. Can this man not just provide a “birth certificate?” Not the same thing. Seriously.”

    No, the short-form said CertificaTION of Live Birth. The long-form says Certificate; the short-form says Certification. BOTH are birth certificates. The Certification is the current official birth certificate of Hawaii, used by thousands of people to prove their birth in the USA for passports every year. The Certificate is the original, long-form birth certificate, which is no longer official, but which Obama recently provided.

    If you check the original birth certificates of the Nordyke Twins, which are on line, you will see that they also say CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH. Hawaii and many other states have a love for fancy names. That is the explanation. Both Certificates and Certifications of birth or of live birth are birth certificates.

    Rough week for birthers? I guess that includes the original birther, and our delightful Sec’y of State Clinton. But, the word rough is an odd word for even an Obamapoligist to use. When I was pulled over recently for a bad tail light, the officer asked me for my proof of insurance. He did not seem to care that I knew my insurance guy’s name or that I’d memorized his phone number if he’d like to chat with him to confirm the validity of that document. He didn’t even care that I had it just a week earlier and I could give him the officer’s name who pulled me over for my other bad tail light last week who would attest to its existence. No, to get out of the ticket, I needed to take my insurance card in and show the police the card. The day I did do that did NOT make anyone have a “rough” day, because I did what I should have done in the first place. Those damn insurance “proofers,” I showed them!

    if you look at other birth certificates from hawaii from 1964 everything matches up the p and the m are written out the same way in differant fonts caucasiion is written out the same way everything looks the same as a differant persons from 1964 yall are c ooko

  • Laird Wilcox

    On the balance, the birth certificate looks OK to me. However, there is one additional anomaly. Ordinarily, custom dictates that the designation “II” is reserved for male children who bear their grandfather’s name. The designation “Jr” is for children who bear their father’s name. Obama bears his father’s name and should be Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. The proper sequence would be Sr., Jr., III, IV, V and so on. “Sr” would be added after “Jr” is born. However, if a son named after his grandfather and given the designation “II” could have a son who is III. This is merely custom and not a part of any law that I know of. If you’re counting anomalies, add this one to the list.

    The eligibility issue is not “frivolous” because this is a matter of national security. When the media attacks Americans for doing their duty to protect their country from corruption, you know something is wrong with the media.

    • granite

      The media does not spend much time investigating the theory that 2+2=5 either.

      Obama published the official birth certificate of Hawaii. Three Republican officials confirmed the facts on it, repeatedly.

      There were notices of Obama’s birth in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961. And they could not have been ads inserted by relatives because Hawaii newspapers only took the official birth notices of the government in those days, and the government did not send out those notices for births outside of Hawaii. (And it could not have been fooled by a claim of a birth at home because in those cases it insisted on witness statements).

      Finally, you know, if a child had been born in any other country than the USA, she or he would need either a US visa or a foreign passport or to be entered on the mother’s US passport to get to the USA. If there been either for Obama, the application for either of those types of documents still exist in the files–in Kenya or in any other country. But no such document nor an application for it has been found.

  • Sue

    The birth certificate document is only part of the many real problems that Obama has regarding eligibility. Several lawyers through lawsuits and others like radio personality Alex Jones, and best selling author Jerome Corsi (his book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate: The Case that Barack Obama is Not Eligible to Be President”, comes out on May 17th) have been working to expose the full truth for over two years. Yet, the arrogant “major” media newspapers, magazines, networks, and Internet sites do not want to admit they made a grave mistake in trusting Obama; therefore, they ostracize the public they claim to serve. Then they wonder why their ratings are down.

    • granite

      Corsi, a well-known birther, has never discussed this fact, and will not in his upcoming book either:

      If a child had been born in any other country than the USA, she or he would need either a US visa or a foreign passport or to be entered on the mother’s US passport to get to the USA. If there been either for Obama, the application for either of those types of documents still exist in the files–in Kenya or in any other country. But no such document nor an application for it has been found.

    A Certificate of Live Birth is a “birth certificate”. What Obama presented in 2008 was a Certification of Live Birth which is a document used in HI for parents who are not residents of HI and does not prove where someone was born since the child could have been born in a different state or a different country.

    The second document that Obama just released is a Certificate of Live Birth which is a birth certificate. So, those claiming he “already released” his birth certificate are mistaken. It is confusing, but that is just what Obama wants: confusion to distract from the real reasons that he is not eligible to be President. Front and foremost, which the birth certificate he now presents shows, is that his father was not a US Citizen, therefore, he is not considered a “Natural Born” citizen since both of his parents had to be US Citizens. The fact that Obama put up this charade and spent millions to keep the birth certificate hidden shows that even Obama doubts his eligibility status. This is not a “new theory”, but a fact that the arrogant media has chosen to ignore for over 2 years.

    • Tracey

      Give it up. For better or worse he’s your President – for now.

      If you don’t like him then work to get someone else in next election. This is all just distraction.

    • granite

      Regarding the claim that the Certification of Live Birth: “is a document used in HI for parents who are not residents of HI and does not prove where someone was born since the child could have been born in a different state or a different country. ”

      Baloney. Hawaii does not allow a Certification of Live Birth with the location of birth being Honolulu unless there was actual proof that the child was born in Honolulu (as Obama was). The Certification of Live Birth is the official birth certificate of Hawaii. Thousands of people use it to get their US passports every year.

      The long-form birth certificate was simply given out in addition to the Certification of Live Birth, and it shows the name of the doctor and the name of the hospital that Obama was born at. Seeing this is nice, but it does not change the fact that Obama was born in Hawaii, as THREE Republican officials had already confirmed, and as the notices in the newspapers also confirmed.

  • John Hardman

    Obama did not ascend to the Presidency of the most powerful nation that has ever existed on this planet by himself or on his academic credentials.

    Obama is but a poorly diguised imposter; doing the bidding of those known (and unknown at this writing) seditious members of Congress and Senate.

    Obama’s only clear claim to fame is his batting average as a bare knuckle Chicago Neighborhood Organizer and glib tounge capable of charming snakes.

    This Birth Certificate issue is far from over; it will be a “Tar Baby”
    that will dog his steps untill He is arrested for High Crimes and treason against the Soverign USA.

    About the numbers ” 991 ” well there is a ” 2 “above it and around you can find a ” 60 ” and a ” 0 “, I think that this are the points needed to give you a US green card, but if you look very carefully you will find a small “666″ symbol inside a pentagram or pentagon (just kidding).

    Back in the sixties, there was a group that believed the world was going to be destroyed on such and such a date and that a space ship was going to come and rescue all the “believers”. Well, of course the day came and went without incident. Did it convince them that they were wrong? Of course not. It only proved to them that their “sincerity” had saved the world from destruction. It made their faith even stronger than before. Hello, birthers.

  • Rick Waypoint

    Why wait so long to release it?

    Anyway, there’s a more important issue and that is that there is legitimate evidence that says that Obama is queer.

    I prefer not to use the word gay since it actually means something else and is used for the purpose of making you think something other that what it actually is. That is something that goes against what people believe is God and it goes against Evolution. It is such an unattractive concept that people use the word gay to get their mind and the minds of others away from what being queer actually means.

    The fact that there is legitimate evidence that says that Obama is gay is more important since it proves that such shame factors are being used as a mechanism of control. Pedophilia is another shame factor that is used for control and we know that Obama’s mentor Frank Marshall Davis is an admitted child rapist.

    Read this:
    secretcontrol.byethost33.com

    It’s a scientific analysis of how such shame factors are being used to control people. The truth is obvious.

    All they ever achieved was based on tricks using queer and child abuse shame factors. Think about it. It’s about control.

    This will now destroy them since we will use those same things against them except we can use such shame factors with the moral imperative. This and the fact they they have such things on most of their people, since they used it for control, makes us 1000′s of times more effective in that their greatest strength is now their greatest weakness.

    They’ve stuffed things up but winning the war against them is not difficult if it means that in fighting against us that they must reveal that they’re queers that have been involved in raping and abusing kids.

    First of all, the document isn’t just a direct photo of the birth certificate – it is a construct made onto new paper and format, as the entire image shows with that “door” like appearance. That must be how they do it, and BTW people shouldn’t complain about the words for “birth certificate” – a descriptive term and not necessarily the literal title that is used everywhere – arranged differently unless they specifically know that HI didn’t or doesn’t use that phrase.

    “Layers” – um, unless the document was *released* as a Photoshop or compatible file, it wouldn’t have “layers” to work with at all. The release is just a jpg or bmp, whatever it was, that is just literally a collection of pixels formed of combinations of 255 brightness levels for each color red, green, blue. So, a “pixel” would be characterized as e.g. in decimal 19-205-166. That literally constitutes what it is, there is no more and “more” has to be inferred or constructed out of other data. The very fact that conspiriologists are hitting on this point makes me very suspicious about them. Why isn’t there more scrutiny of the people making the claims, and so on – what’s “behind” them? I think we can guess, that it mostly has little to do with “the principle of the thing.”

    Note also, that the government of the State of Hawaii would have to be massively involved in such a fraud, it’s not something that Obama could do himself (the way, e.g. James O’Keefe framed ACORN etc with deceptive video edits.)

    Joseph Vangieri, that “make your own [fake Hawaiian] birth certificate” site is cute, but I wonder what kind of legal trouble they or customers could get into for generating (even if not “using”) counterfeit official documents like that?

    Well it just goes to prove , once again, that being the President of the USA is too big a job for an American.

    If the american government forged this it would be perfect.
    The way to tell is by the serial numbers check carefully the 10 people before & after did any of them know his parents? this certificate would have to be real with all details changed to fit in. you cant change details of 20 familys & their school & tax records because of friends & relitives of them would also have to be changed.almost a complicated task as 911…

    All Americans are immigrants so what´s the big deal?

  • Steven K

    Seriously,

    Do you not have anything better to do? Man, get a job. Have you ever looked at a birth certificate from the 50′s or 60′s? They used several different fonts. They were smudged. They were basically thrown together. Give it up already. PLEASE FIND SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE TO DO! OR NO INTERNET FOR A WEEK YOUNG MAN!

    29 April 2011 Jean-Claude Tremblay, software trainer and Adobe-certified expert, said that during the scanning process, instances where the software was unable to separate text fully from background led to the creation of a separate layer within the document. “I’d be more afraid it’d be fake if it was one in piece. It would be harder to check if it’s a good one if it’s a fake,” Tremblay said.

    The only REASON things get done, is because the people who SURROUND oBOMA, Drape the

    American Flag around him, WHILE HE shoves it off of himself, in disheveled pride. and NUMB ignorance.

    While, He admits, Boldly and sneeringly, he has done plenty of COCAINE.

    Please Use your head and tell us, BECAUSE we need and deserve to know…
