"Placate, appease, obfuscate and lie." Well, Donvan, with a title like that I was sure you would be referring to Rush Limbaugh or some other neo-conservative troglodite, but instead I find that it was obviously a reference to your own looney fantasies about our newly elected president. With absolutely nothing---as in zero, zilch, nada---to back up your goofy assertions about Obama's Islamic leanings you state that, "His demotion of the Judeo-Christian world and elevation of the Muslam [spelling incorrect: it's actually "Muslim" or occasionally "Moslem"] world view is coincident with deconstruction of the Constitution of the United States." You then ramble on further and tell us that, "His affinity for Islamic mythology has been evident for years."

Okay, so I'm calling you on your b.s. assertions. Tell us out here in cyberspace---because we'd really like to know---exactly how has Obama demoted the Judeo-Christian world and elevated the Muslim world? This is a guy who has attended Christian churches for decades and married a Christian woman and is raising his daughters as Christians. So go ahead, explain to us how he is 'demoting' Christianity in America.

And explain to us exactly how Obama has been deconstructing the Constitution of the United States? For one thing, he's only been in office for little more than a month and hasn't had time to deconstruct anything. And were you aware that for twelve years he was a law professor at a major university with a specialty in Constitutional law? Bet you didn't know that, did you? That's because you were too busy following his affinity for Islamic mythology which, according to you, has been evident for years!

Oh really, so for years now you've known about Obama and his affinity for Islam? Actually, I'd be willing to bet that as recently as two years ago you'd never even heard of Barack Obama, right? Admit it, you have no clue what the guy believes in. But just in case you do, here's your chance to back up the rant you posted. Give me one example, one single thing Obama has done, which indicates a deep "affinity for Islamic mythology" [whatever that means].

Okay, Donvan, we're waiting.........
