Make an easy $100k, Prove Obama has the right to be President

There is still a fair bit of fuss going on about the birth status of Prez Obama, as LaDaro posts this morning.

A goodly number of these anti Obama wingnut’s don’t believe the Hawaiian certificate of live birth is valid enough proof because it’s the less acceptable short form rather than the longer full birth certificate. The argument being that if this short form is not good enough identification to use on a passport (which it apparently isn't), it certainly can't be good enough to support his right to rule.

Other’s Obama critics claim that the reported dual citizen status of his birth father or Obama’s own possible dual citizenship in Indonesia invalidate his claim on the white house. His apparently senile granny who claimed he WAS born in Kenya certainly did not help the cause.

Here’s an entire archive of articles questioning his status if you’re a glutton for punishment.

Despite an unanimous resolution by the House of Representatives stating that Obama is "natural born" some of these guys just won't give up. Jason Hommel a silver analyst, who constantly mixes his hard money advocacy with libertarianism and scripture is actually offering $100k for anybody who can definitively prove Obama’s “natural born’ status

Since Obama is inviting people up to the White House to have a beer and discuss their differences I hope he digs up the definitive proof, calls up Hommel and tells him drop by and bring his cheque book. Even better tell him to bring the $100k in silver.

Coke plans to market Fizzy Milk

Take some quantity of milk, add sparkling water, fruit juice, a heap of sugar and something to keep it from spoiling unrefrigerated for several months and you've got Coke's newest beverage VIO, which they appear to be marketing as something healthy and natural.

This VIO is currently being tested in NY natural food stores and have no doubt that dumb ass people will be pouring this crap into their kids thinking that it's a reasonable alternative to milk for their sugar addicted children. An 8oz container can of Citrus Burst, Peach Mango, Tropical Colada or Very Berry sports a very cola like 26 grams of sugar yet has only a bit of vitamin C, Calcium and less than 1/8 the protein of real milk.

If they want to sell this shit that's their business but if they dare to market this as a health drink as it looks like they are doing in their tests, there should be outrage. What's next energy milk with ephedra and caffeine?Recommend this Post
