The "birther" movement simply amazes me. For the simple reason that even when evidence is provided, repeatedly, that proves that President Obama was born in Hawaii, they simply refuse to believe that evidence has been furnished, and continue to claim that Obama "refuses to produce a birth certificate."

That birth certificate, along with newspaper birth notices from the time of his birth, have been made public, by the way.

I guess if you're never willing to actually take the time to do any research, or, in fact, learn anything, you can be convinced to believe all kinds of things. Sometimes I wonder if you could convince people that the sky isn't blue, just by not teaching them to never look up.

OMG! I saw that yesterday and I was just dumbfounded. Yes, there are still idiots out there (I've seen the emails o.o), but a *SENATOR*! Even if he is a Republican, that's just... That's absurd. That's pandering to fears and hatred and encouraging it. Because he doesn't want to upset his supporters. But for somebody of that high in politics to claim it in a open forum... {shakes head disbelievingly} Yes, this is our world.
