Well, in some circles, reading is quite a novelty. So 500 people preordering would, well, be unheard of.

Well, no one forces the "willfully stupid" to drop those coins in the slots or play black jack...

A high count on pre-orders of political books doesn't mean jack-squat because they are usually bought in bulk by a political action group for the express purpose of jacking up the pre-order numbers thus giving the book more press and "media buss." Those books often end up as give-aways for people subscribing to and/or donations to places like the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, etc. It's become common practice.

There is another thread going on over in Great Debates posted by Wanderingspirit concerning this web page that you might want to look at. Definitely interesting and what appears to be an original certificate of birth from Kenya.

Trump is right, Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama is hiding what appears to be a criminal past.
