Birther queen Orly Taitz loses, big surprise, two more

#Birther Orly Taitz's losing record grew longer Tuesday, as a judge tossed out her latest legal stylings.

Pointed as ever, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth described Taitz's "Sisyphean quest to prove that President Barack Obama is using a fake Social Security number and a forged birth certificate." The judge thereupon rejected Taitz's Freedom of Information Act request to obtain President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate.

In a separate-but-related case, Judge Lamberth also rejected another Taitz birther lawsuit, assessing the quality of her reasoning this way:

"The Court is loath to dignify plaintiff’s allegations of fraud with a response on the merits."

''The right to own and bear arms shall NOT be INFRINGED.''

If this registration law applied to law abiding citizens is not an INFRINGEMENT, no one will ever be able to determine what is.
