Birthers Suggest Impeaching Chief Justice John Roberts
The birther movement is now targeting Chief Justice John Roberts for impeachment if he swears in President Barack Obama for a second term later this month.
Craige McMillan, a columnist for the conservative publication WND.com, wrote a piece last week asking Roberts to not swear Obama in, because, according to McMillan, Obama does not meet the Constitution's definition of a natural born citizen.
These people are like Nazis.
No, I am not exaggerating. If something doesn't happen to shut down this bullshit racist crap ass 'movement', it's going to keep going until eventually some fascist right wing dictator gets a job with enough power to give them what they want.
I'm all for impeaching Roberts...and Scalia...and Thomas.
and these people have access to guns...

He was the swing vote to keep Obamacare intact.
Fucking line the "leaders" of the birther movement up against a wall and shoot them.
Like they do in the countries they want us to emulate.
And I say "leaders" in the way that Moe is the leader of the Three Stooges.
The birthers are certifiably insane. It's all about racism, period. The only positive thing I can say about these troglodytes is that most of them are old and are dying off.
I'm surprised he's even going to do it this time around. Didn't her screw it up last time?
They also hate him because he was the deciding vote for Obamacare.

The birthers have no power - I'm not sure why they scare you.
Guess who would appoint the next SC justice if Roberts were impeached.
What R1 said. Nazi's who don't realize it. Obama was elected fair and square.
Why give these deluded fools any credence at all? If we and the fucking media would just ignore them and stop giving them attention, maybe they would just give up and disappear.
The fucked up thing is these assholes, who claim the LOVE the Constitution and it must be followed to the letter don't even realize that nowhere in the Constitution does is say the CJ is the one who administers the oath. In fact, all it says is anyone qualified to administer oaths can do it. Coolidge was sworn in by his father, whose only qualification was he was public servant and a notary public.
" If we and the fucking media would just ignore them and stop giving them attention, maybe they would just give up and disappear."
I hate when people say that shit.
"Oh, they aren't talking about us over at DataLounge. Guess the meeting's off."
[quite]I hate when people say that shit.
Likewise, I'm sure.
If you impeach John Roberts, Obama gets to pick a liberal and change the court. I hope they impeach him. Lets all write to get him impeached.
If I ever go on a murderous rampage, I promise my first victim would be Antonin Scalia.
Doesn't stuff like this rankle the staunchest of conservatives, even some teabaggers?
I'm all for it because it's yet more evidence of their collective mental disturbance. Unable to face any semblance of reality, they simply ratchet up the intensity and become increasingly fantasist in their demands.
Isn't anyone on the other side of the aisle telling loony brethren to just shut up already because it's making them all look bad?
Thank you 18.
Yes Scalia before Roberts.
Where are the real American patriots, who should be aggressively defending the honor of our president? How disrespectful to the fairly elected leader of the free world to question his qualifications, at this late stage of the game.
R16, do you really think if, say, nobody paid attention to the Nazis, they would have just disappeared?
Enough magical thinking. The birthers should be stomped out, like disco was.

I think he did make a mistake. If I remember correctly, there were two bizarre theories -- one said he did it purposely to embarrass Obama and the other said since he administered the oath incorrectly, Obama's presidency was invalid.
Oh, please - the very day after Obama's inauguration Roberts did the ceremony again. It's been well documented.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
