An investigative “Cold Case Posse” launched six months ago by “America’s toughest sheriff” – Joe Arpaio of Arizona’s Maricopa County – has concluded there is probable cause that the document released by the White House last year as President Obama’s birth certificate is a computer-generated forgery.
That black guy just can’t be president. He can’t, he can’t, he can’t!
But you have to admit… if Obama’s birth certificate is NOT a fake then there would have to be a conspiracy of massive proportions: Orly Taitz would have to be a nut, Donald Trump would have to be a blowhard, and half of the Republican blogosphere would have to be idiots. Surely the explanation that Obama’s birth certificate is fake is the much simpler one..
NASA has announced that the latest Kepler data dump contains 1,091 extrasolar planet candidates, with 196 Earth-sized planets among them. The data shows “a clear trend toward smaller planets at longer orbital periods is evident with each new catalog release. This suggests that Earth-size planets in the habitable zone are forthcoming if, indeed, such planets are abundant.” Total Kepler candidates as of February 27, 2012: 2,321.
