    Look, no need to get touchy. Obviously, parents can do whatever they want. But to be strictly correct, you are a "junior" to your father if you have the exact same name.

    I don't think there are actual 'rules' about those things. Customs would be a better description.

    It's the custom for a direct descendant to be a jr, and an indirect to be a II, but there are no hard and fast rules.

    Here's Emily Post on the topic:
    • A man with the same name as his father uses "Jr. after his name as long as his father is alive. He may either drop the suffix after his father's death or, if he prefers, retain it so that he won't be confused with his late father.
    • When a man is named after his father who is a "Jr.," he is called "the third," once written with either the numeric 3rd or the Roman numeral III but now confined almost exclusively to the latter.
    • A man named after his grandfather, uncle, or cousin uses the suffix II.
    • (The wife of each of these men uses the same suffix after her name as her husband does.)
    • In writing, a comma is used to separate the surname and the suffixes Jr. and Sr., though the trend is now toward dropping the comma. Junior when spelled out, is written with a lower case j.
    • When a name has a numeral suffix--as in Robert Conner III--no punctuation is used.

    So, what do you call the father of Junior Mints? Mints Senior? What about the third generation? Mints III? Or Junior Mints Jr.?

    Orly is a local favorite out here. Even in conservative Orange County, people find her to be insane. I agree, news organizations shouldn't give this nutbag any airtime.

    Obama putting this out isn't going to kill the issue with insane cuntrags like Orly. Anything Obama produces is being called "fake" or "doctored" - Obama can't win with these people and I don't know why he's even bothered to try.

    The way I'm seeing it now is that Obama released to birth cert right before the Correspondents Dinner to fuck with Trump. The issue is now dead, except on the extreme fringes.

    Also, the timing of the release so close to bin Laden's death, was quite clever really.

    I think Donald's timing was way off. He may have jumped the shark.
