Thinking of chocolate today, and of stories from the past as well. Let me explain what I mean.
We got this story long ago, so I will post it first, you remember it, all over the net.
Then after reading the chocolate baby story, we also remember this one….
[update] Video: Interview with attorney Stephen Pidgeon. Attorney Pidgeon claims he found a record for a name change from “Barak Mounir Ubayd” to “Barack Hussein Obama” on October 14th 1982 in Skookumchuck, British Columbia. Attorney Pidgeon also discusses details in his new book titled “The Obama Error” which can be purchased here. The interview aired 6/3/2011 on TruNews Radio. Hat tip to Dr. Kate. Previous interview with atty. Pidgeon can be found here.
UPDATE: Dr. Corsi: Pidgeon’s name change in Canada hoax traces back to this German website that is still pushing the fake Kenyan birth certificate that Obama supporters two years ago admitted forging in order to embarrass those of us challenging Obama eligibility. Don’t fall for Pidgeon’s ruse without verification from the Canadian provincial government that will never come.
Then I remember another chocolate story I found long ago and I wonder……
