Over twenty-five percent of Americans, say that President Obama’s 49th birthday is not this week. A poll called “where were you really born that day?” summoned this up into question.The persistent theory boosted heavily by conservative activists that Obama was not born in Hawaii, but that he was born outside of the country of the U.S.
The CNN/Opinion research Corp. survey said 27 percent of responsive people doubt that Obama’s father is telling the truth or that his birth certificate is real. 42% have no doubts, 29% said he probably was born in Hawaii, but couldn’t give a sure answer. Democrats backed Obama more than Republicans. 14 percent of Republicans said he was NOT born in the United States. This issue began over Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign and has become a topic of interest with Rush Limbaugh and the so called ‘Birther’ movement. Hawaii has already released a “certified” copy of Obama’s birth certificate. The 1961 archives of two local newspapers in Hawaii also show his birth announcements! Snopes.com has also checked into it.Related Sources:http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/citizen.asp http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html

They say it’s best to go out with a bang.And as resignations go, Steven Slater’s was certainly memorable.When a stroppy passenger swore at the flight attendant after he asked her to remain in her seat until the plane had stopped, he first commandeered the public address system to launch a four-letter tirade at shocked travellers.
