    Hawaii Limits Requests on Obama File

    HONOLULU — The conspiracy theorists who cling to the false belief that President Obama was born outside the United States outrage many Democrats and embarrass many Republicans. But to a group of state workers who toil away in a long building across from the Capitol, they represent something else: a headache and a waste of time.

    The theorists, known as “birthers,” have deluged the state Health Department here with so many demands for information about the president’s birth in Hawaii that Gov. Linda Lingle, a Republican, signed a law this week allowing state agencies to ignore repeated requests from people who have had a request answered in the last year.
    And how will the birthers react?

    In other news, The Flat Earth Society is suing every scientist in the world, NASA, the Russian and Chinese space programs, telescope makers, and Carl Sagan (even though he is dead), for possession of fake pictures which show that the world is round. In their lawsuit, they demand the long form, which shows that the world is really flat. The Flat Earth Society is being represented in court by Orly Taitz.

    Oh boy. I've said this in another post, but there's a magic potion you can drink to forget about nutjobs and birthers... it's called BLEACH!

    I wasn't aware that people other than the guardian of minor child could request a copy of someone else's birth certificate.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    From the OP blurb it sounds like they can't get it, but the state has to respond to their request

    It sounds ridiculous that they had to send a "piss off you can't request of a copy of someone else's birth certificate" letter in the first place.

    In general I disagree. I don't know what the BC request process is like, but for FOIA requests it's better to force an agency to explicitly deny a request rather than just leaving the petitioner hanging. For repeated identical rejected requests it's reasonable to ignore them, but that's probably not a big problem. People going nuts over Obama made it an issue, though

    Clearly the woman is a socialist Republican. Obama, being the Antichrist, sent a demon into her to do his bidding and keep the forged certificate secret. He can't let the world know that he hatched from an egg that was incubated by hell's fire.

    See, now this might get my vote.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Off topic, isnt their speculation that the Gov might run for president?
