yogi, I'm a tv doctor, and I've diagnosed you as having severe Aspergers symptoms.
Eat 4 prunes, and stay in bed, until the weekend.

He's not one of ours...even we have standards...

I've put it all on this site, dumba$$es, but you can't seem to understand what our founders meant.

The most recently I've posted is the 1991 and 2007 identifications promoting a book of his stating he was being born in Kenya.

Haven't you ever wondered why they didn't notice that "error" for 17 years?

Ben -- Standing ovation for your 10:38 post. Bravo good sir, Bravo.

The only thing I wonder about is where you got your enormous hate of blacks and half whites. Your hate for his skin color has impacted you thinking beyond reason. If you really think this is a conspiracy then find those that think the same.

You are wasting your time with us and only making yourself a greater fool than you are now. You will never convince us, because you have no grounds for such nonsense.

Grow up yogi and get a life.

By: gdiafante on 5/21/12 at 12:51

He knows about us as much as we knew about quantum mechanics.

Ben is Ok for a money mad Republican. ;-)

By: jvh2b on 5/21/12 at 12:54

Ok...feeding the troll..sorry.

Yogi - your entire ASSumption is that you KNOW what the founders meant. If they meant something they were SPECIFIC about it.

Obama's mother was an American citizen. Obama was born in Hawaii. He is therefore a natural born citizen.

Obama was elected by the electoral college per our constitution and the results validated, and he was sworn in by the Supreme Court. Both houses of Congress agreed and validated the results.

There is no legal precedent to justify you pathetic and ill informed views. As we have discussed previously case law in fact favors Obama on this issue. Until there is case law specific to his exact case (and there never will be...it's just not an issue) any ambiguity will go in his favor. The fact is you hold a definition of natural born citizen that neither the legislative, judicial or executive branch sees (thank goodness considering how far you have to have your head up you a$ to define it that way).

YOU make not like it an YOU may not agree (regardless of how ill informed you opinion is), but the FACT of the matter is he IS the PRESIDENT of the United States of America, and your tale told by an idiot is full of sound and fury - signifies nothing.

So hail to the chief a$ hole...or just do the us all a favor and move....

By: gdiafante on 5/21/12 at 1:04

jvh, don't bother. I've cited the Constitution, U.S. code, 200+ years of case law...it's all above yogi's head, which hangs close to where his knuckles drag.

By: jvh2b on 5/21/12 at 1:10

Oh I know gd...I've gone over the same with him.

Just every now and then he makes me mad enough to state the obvious....again...

By: gdiafante on 5/21/12 at 1:13

I understand completely...if God himself descended upon FoxNews studios and declared to the world that Obama is a natural born citizen (because he has nothing better to do in the universe than worry about America), yogi would then claim God to exist illegally.

By: jvh2b on 5/21/12 at 1:19

Glad I wasn't taking a drink when I read your comment there gd - brilliant.

By: yogiman on 5/21/12 at 1:40


Tell me, how do you know he was born in Hawaii? You don't... because he refuses to show a legitimate birth certificate. By the laws at that time, if he was born in Hawaii, the best citizenship status he could have gotten would have been dual citizenship, not natural born. Only native born.

With a Kenyan father, he inherited his father's name and nationality. If he was born in Kenya as evidence has shown, he was born as a British subject because his mother could not pass her American citizenship down to him at her age and citizenship status. You know, she was only 18 and by law had to have lived in the USA for a minimum of 5 years after her 10th birthday.

You should do a little historical research and see what our founders were thinking about when they put that restriction into becoming the nation's President. It was to keep someone from taking the office with a relationship to a foreign nation. You know, like a British subject from Kenyan who had become a Kenyan citizen coming here and taking the office under foreign control. The meaning has been found in several cases showing it meant being born to parents who were both citizens of the nation of your birth.

Why do you think the Senate approved John McCain being a natural born citizen? Because his father and mother were American citizens and his father was in Panama on duty in service.

During that hearing, why did Barry refuse to answer any questions on the subject since he was an instigator of the hearing?

A deeper question is: Based on his instigation of the hearing, why did the Senate not insist he answer those questions and prove he was legally eligible? Why did they allow him to refuse?

And speaking of foreign relationship, for what reason did Barry go to Kenya and politic with a cousin running for a office when he was in the Senate? That was unethical from the word go.

Unless you are wanting a One World Government, you better wake up.

womp womp womp

You'd think a retired person would want to relax, enjoy the few years they have left instead of proving their idiocy to the world.

By: jvh2b on 5/21/12 at 1:46

You'd think the tin foil would cut into his head and make for some nasty skin issues too.

Maybe a nice analgesic cream would help...then he wouldn't be so cranky and could then use his brain...

By: gdiafante on 5/21/12 at 1:47

That would presume there's something in between his ears besides oxygen.

yogi, listening to the voices in his head.... thinks he's going to lead the people who post on the CP site, to band together and overthrow Obama. All whilst at our keyboards.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/21/12 at 2:15

yogi you have not shown us that you are not a North Korean agent. Show us evidence that you are who you say you are. How do we know that you are what you say you are? yogi how do we know that you are working from North Korean this very moment and Gordonsville is not just a village where idiots live?

By: gdiafante on 5/21/12 at 2:17

We affectionately call yogi "Old blood & Putz"

By: Captain Nemo on 5/21/12 at 2:23

If the imbecile from Smith County really had any true evidence to offer instead of what he wants to believe is true, he would organized an army and force Obama out of the White House, Instead of wasting time on line with people not consider him to be the fool he is.

By: bfra on 5/21/12 at 2:40

slacker - I want to be in on the waterboarding, but yogi doesn't have anything in his head, so will it bother him?

By: slacker on 5/21/12 at 2:44

bfra, you'll have to confer with Sgt. Major brrrrk, they've got me peeling potato's.

By: yogiman on 5/21/12 at 2:47

Want a little piece of novice literature, children? Go to bing, or google, and check out 'the first time I heard of barack by tom fife'... back in 11/20/2008

You might enjoy it.

By: gdiafante on 5/21/12 at 2:57

I prefer that masterpiece "A Tale of Two Brain Cells: the story of yogi".

By: bfra on 5/21/12 at 3:01

Is yogi referring to Bing Crosby? He would think yogi is crazy, also. LOL

By: gdiafante on 5/21/12 at 3:04

What do yogi and Bing Crosby have in common?

They're both brain dead.

By: gdiafante on 5/21/12 at 3:08

Don't worry slacker. Yogi's bound to get fragged...battlefield promotions aplenty...

By: slacker on 5/21/12 at 3:13

If I'm gonna be a Keyboard Commando, I wants some rank, I do have my pride.

By: yogiman on 5/21/12 at 3:19

Sorry, gdiafarte, Bing and I were well equiped with brains. I'm sorry that you have such an empty skull. Is it filled with hot air that's making you so light headed?

By: slacker on 5/21/12 at 3:19

Its dark here in this digital asylum.

By: brrrrk on 5/21/12 at 3:39

How do I get out of this forums army? I've got an idea, I'll pull a "Nuge" and stop bathing for a week or so and load up my pants real good.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/21/12 at 4:11

If yogi had a brain, you can bet it is not his.

By: yogiman on 5/21/12 at 4:46

You can rest assured it isn't your's dumba$$.

By: Loner on 5/21/12 at 7:20

Well, well....I left the board for ten hours, and I come back here tonight to see that my usual adversary, Rasputin, has been very kind to the Lone One...thanks for the support....I credit the nuns.

And Ben Dover makes a lot of sense too....everything was honky dory when I left to go Albion...to protest the Holy Wars. Then, while I was away, the deliberately annoying troll succeeded in irritating everyone to the point of consternation and beyond....the troll became the target of a verbal food fight, which devolved into a poo-flinging fecal fight.

I was also conscripted into some sort of Birther Commando unit, as a PFC.....with the troll in Command, as the General.....and I was accused earlier of being a madman off my meds.....priceless.

Enjoy...it's 4:20 somewhere right now.

By: acluu on 5/21/12 at 7:43


Remember what I told you....

Whenever they are all over you about Barry, you got to pull out your "Ace of Spades"



By: acluu on 5/21/12 at 7:45

Where is Larry Sinclair when you need him.... lmao

By: yogiman on 5/21/12 at 9:28


This so-called troll isn't trying to agitate any of you "unfriendly" posters on this site. I'm simply trying to get you to open your blind eyes and see what your beloved president is trying to do to this nation.

There is two more "shows" you should see.

www.wnd.com/wnd_video/obama-and-treason/ the other is www.wnd.com/wnd_video/kenya-believe-this-guy/

Obama is a treasonist and you guys aren't looking beyond your noses. Why? The onlyh answer you hav e given so far is because of his race. That is the onlyh reason you have be able to give for voting for him because you sure don't know who he is.

Call me what you wish but wake up before its too late.

By: yogiman on 5/21/12 at 9:37


I can' get your "show" on my 'puter'. I hope it's as telling as the two I posted.

By: acluu on 5/22/12 at 4:07

See if this may help you Mr. Yogi sir.
