For the last time, the man is NOT a Muslim.

in response to reader comment: He's most certainly a Muslim.

Frankly, that's the most ignorant statement I've ever heard. First of all, you're saying that you don't befriend people who don't practice the same religion as you do? That's the sort of behavior that prevents our country from getting anywhere. I have Jewish friends... does that make me a Jew? I also have male friends, so I suppose I'm now a man. Secondly, he didn't change his name, I don't know what that nonsense is all about. Thirdly, I've never seen anyone "solute" a flag, but I've certainly seen them "salute" it. Fourthly, we've had plenty of Presidents who have never been in the military, and they've been perfectly sufficient Commanders in Chief. Barack Obama's not the one attacking us from the inside, people with closed minds and ignorant, uninformed viewpoints are the ones doing the attacking.
