    I really couldn't think of a nicer guy to pay my bills than you. Thank you.
  3. Asshole.

    I have to admit it did make me laugh though.

    Snopes has some discussion of this, including a link to the birth certificate image posted on the web.

    If Obama was born in Hawaii, he has claims to natural-born citizenship by right of soil. If not, he at least has a claim by his mother being a natural-born citizen (though apparently there is a technicality with that, see the Snopes page).

    When he was a young child, his mother and stepfather took him to Indonesia, and wrote that he was a citizen of that country on a form so he could attend school there. I'm not sure that constitutes Obama losing his US citizenship. Is that the crux of the lawyer's argument?

  5. Jonbig your truly something. No wonder you like debating, all you have to do is change your personality from liberal nut to moderate thinker in order to somehow manipulate people with your lack of logic. Your pitiful. Stop acting like your sad intellect can add any substance to anything. At least the people who share their ideas don't change their actual beliefs or hide them in order to get different results. Your just in weird man.

    "a person who acquires a foreign citizenship by applying for it may lose U.S. citizenship. In order to lose U.S. citizenship, the law requires that the person must apply for the foreign citizenship voluntarily, by free choice, and with the intention to give up U.S. citizenship.

    Intent can be shown by the person’s statements or conduct."

    "The general rule is, if you swear allegiance supremely to a foreign government and renounce your US citizenship."

    I don't know the answers, but I'm fairly sure that if it gets to be an important point, Barry will simply say that his stepfather lied to the Indonesian gov't.
    He can then assure us that this wasn't the stepfather he knew for all those years. [​IMG]
  7. At what age did Obama apply for foreign citizenship?

    You tell me what age Barry was when he went to a school in Indonesia that required Indonesian citizenship, and I might have an answer for you.
