    So do I. It's mindless crap that the extremist right wingers started. Conspiracy if I've ever seen one.

    I think conspiracy threads on the same crap should be combined just like if two posters post the same story in the breaking news section, a mod will combine the threads. Because it seems like the same conspiracy loons make the same threads over and over and over and over again.
    "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"

    Good call.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Especially now that the President has released his long form birth certificate for public view, birth-er threads are clearly on the level of fake moon landings and 9/11-inside-job conspiracies.

    I vote no. I think that the birther stuff is a bunch of nonsense because if there were anything at all to it a political rival would have seized on it, but I'm not ready to call it a conspiracy theory just yet because Obama has not yet addressed all of the issues the birthers have brought up, it's not just about the birth certificate for some people. Once Obama addresses all of the birther issues no matter how beneath him he thinks that may be, then it's a conspiracy theory.

    Addressing the fanatical ramblings of the insane fringe is beneath the office of the President.

    To the conspiracy forums.

    Shouldn't this thread be considered a birther thread then and sent to the conspiracy section?
