    I thought the issue was finally resolved, guess not. But since it seems that since Arizona no longer has any real crime, and after the morning Dunkin Donuts run, the Maricopa County sheriff's office truly has nothing better to do with their time, Sheriff Joe will now be setting up a "posse" to investigate Obama's birth certificate.

    Maybe when Sheriff Joe is done with this, he can help our member PinkFloyd prove that 9/11 was perpetrated by the US government.:rolleyes:

    I guess someone doesn't know what jurisdiction means.

    I'm glad the citizens of Maricopa County are trusting this person to enforce the law.

    He's an elected official, and he obviously know which side his bread is buttered on. There must be a lot of birthers in Marcopa County.

    I can. If he has tons of tea partiers in his county he he planding to them. I honestly hope that this is nothing more than him talking about it and then putting 5 names "to look into it" and then just be a file that gets zero attention.

    Now if any real tax payer money is wasted then there will be issues. I really hope it is him saying BS to make his voters happy but do nothing on it.

    Many of those who no longer believe (or never did believe) the birther garbage are nevertheless willing to try and harness it for their own personal or political gain. It's a kind of political tool rather than a serious accusation.

    Still, I have no doubt that there are hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions of people who are ignorant enough to truly believe this lie.

    How else is he going to spend his time, given that the feds told him a massively large group of actual criminals is apparently off-limits?

    Was forming a 'posse' to investigate the validity Obama's birth certificate the first thing that leapt to your mind?

    these posses are just a trick to hide what the illuminati are really up to, everyone knows that....do you really need more proof that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is one of their puppets?

    What legal standing does this guy use for his actions and why isn't the state investigating HIM for misuse of public funds. Etc.

    That's an interesting question. I can't speak towards the him and Arizona and such, but I'm always amused at the Alabama Supreme Court elections, where candidates run on constitutional platforms, such as "protecting the second amendment," when the reality is, as you touch on, not even close to being within their purview as a state court judge. But it gets them elected.

    And that's why Arpaio is Sheriff. Bread and circuses, Maricopa County-style. I don't think it would be too much of a stretch to suggest that Arpaio is a local political darling more than anything else.

    Actually, this was settled about 50 years ago when the President was born in Hawaii and the Hospital filed the appropriate paperwork reflecting the birth. If that wasn't good enough, the local newspaper published a birth announcement.

    Anyone who thought it was ever in doubt has to seriously reevaluate their willingness to believe what right-wing talking heads spew on a daily basis.

    What a clown this guy is. Crime is down all across Arizona except for his county.

    Guys, this is a serious issue.

    I hear Obama is holed up in a box canyon with a bunch of rustlers and half of Old Man Tatum's cattle! We ride at dawn.

    Exactly.

    The feds did not such thing, rather the current case is on the enforceability of aspects of SB1070. However, the MCSD is perfectly able to enforce the law as to agreements from before 2010.

    Arpaio is part of the county's political machine and thus enjoys more support than he deserves. In actuality, the sheriff's department is rife with problems, including ethnic profiling and mismanagement (the department under two separate investigations). So, for Arpaio this is a great shiny object to deflect attention from the fact that Arpaio is actually a terrible lawman.

    Oh, I never suspected otherwise. He appears to be a classic example of a corrupt local politician. I recall some years ago that the little village of New Rome, OH was dissolved by the state after the village police department became infamous for viciously over-enforcing the speed limit on their tiny stretch of road in order to make money.

    Arpaio is a crook, plain and simple.

    And, yet, it's fascinating to see how much support he gets from conservatives because he makes the right noises on a few hot button issues.
