Once again...know your facts before you go on a tirade, "The More Educated Anne"

I have been reading these posts with a mixture of sadness, fear, frustration, and sometimes a chuckle over the ignorance of some people. What ever happened to the basic American foundations? Aren't people proud to be American anymore? And if they are not, there are PLENTY of other countries to go to!

Anne, you may want to do some deeper research on the "weapons of mass destruction" that President Bush alleged were in the Middle East...they certainly were! They were placed on empty 747's and flown to nearby Syria before we got there...Maybe just MAYBE the President of our wonderful country knows a bit more than you and the rest of the citizens...because that is his JOB! Do you really think that the citizens of a country should be privy to every piece of intelligence that our President receives and bases his decisions on? Let's get real.

And since I am writing my only post, I will finish it off by saying that it matters a lot that Obama had his formative years in a Muslim home...the first five years in a child's life have the biggest effect. There is extensive research supporting this. If you research the way the Muslim religion works, you may have a better understanding of why this may be a concern. Race really has nothing to do with it unless you are on the "Obama" team...haven't heard McCain bring it up much have you? Now if Colin Powell ran for president, that would be a different story! He would be a QUALIFIED candidate! What a concept!

And you are seriously telling me that if Obama regularly attended a church where extreme dislike of whites and many American principles are preached that he would DISAGREE with that way of thinking? I don't know about you, but I sure wouldn't stay at a church preaching something I didn't agree with for long, especially not nearly two decades!

All I can say is that you had better hope you are right on the mark and not way off...because if Obama gets in you may get a big nasty surprise over the next four years. Oh, and by the way...the terrorists who bombed us on 9-11 had no desire to "talk" or resolve anything "peacefully"; that was painfully obvious in what they did. They hate America and hate Christianity and believe that they will go to their Heaven for dying to suppress and get rid of us!

Proud to be an American...HOME OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE!
