Poe's law

From the "surely-you-can't-be-serious department"... it's probably a well-known fact that birthers are batshit insane, but even I didn't expect them to be THIS insane:

On Friday, February 3, 2012 the death knell of America the Beautiful tolled across the fifty states and around the world. An administrative judge in the state of Georgia rewrote the Constitution and ruled in favor of putative president Barack Hussein Obama declaring him a Natural Born Citizen and eligible to be on their state ballot. Our rule of law is no more. Our Constitution is no more. Obama, Soros, state media, activist judges and all the ‘powers that be’ of a New World Order sealed our fate. The United States is a land of liberty no more.

You'd think that this whiny, hand-wringing concoction of quacking fruitloopery and turgid pomp is the work of an exaggerating parodist, perhaps a writer for The Onion, that nobody could REALLY write this in earnest — but you'd be wrong.

They're serious. And don't call them Shirley.

You bring up an interesting point. That the US is made up of mostly good citizens, with a few bad apples and media that gives them attention. What disturbs me are how many of those good "live-and-let-live" Americans who are just complacent to the whole thing. They don't speak out. They don't call out racism/sexism/homophobia/etc. They just somehow expect it as a way of life because it doesn't affect them personally. (Of course then, the irony is that many Americans do consistently scream that the Muslims don't speak out against their bad apples.)

And as for our government, it's sad to see how complacent we really are if we let some of these fools into office. Or what criteria we use for voting. Or, heck, what government seats are fraudulently obtained.

Aye. :/ As they say, all that's necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.
