Unlike many here, present company excepted I'll presume, I take time to give a careful read to most of the linked articles that start posts before commenting on them. In the case of that one, when I was done, I wanted a few minutes of my life back. Broad false generalizations like the ones I've excerpted below make it difficult to take the rest of his article seriously. Even though he makes a few salient points worth considering, it's evident that the man is a fool, and I do not suffer fools gladly.

....No one in any of the Islamic countries is trying to take away our freedoms. No one in Russia, China, or North Korea gives a [censored] about them, either. In reality, the only people taking away our freedoms are in Washington, DC, our statehouses, and our city halls.

Every level of government is strangling liberty! If you cannot see that Bambi, then who is the fool?

I didn't say they weren't, but anyone who believes our government is the ONLY threat, as the author of the linked article clearly contends, is indeed a fool.

So, you believe that the pushes for Sharia law here in the U.S. are solely originating here in the U.S.? You are a fool.

S-n-Q. If you will go back and READ my post you lifted the quote from, you will see the following sentence: ..."Broad false generalizations like the ones I've excerpted below make it difficult to take the rest of his article seriously...".

The words you attribute to me are the ones spoken by the author of the article. I suggest with as much grace as I can muster that you make certain someone actually wrote something before calling him a fool for doing so.

Edited to add: To answer your question unequivocally, no, I do not remotely believe that, just in case the narrative above was not clear.

If his point is foolish please explain how someone in Iraq or Afghanistan is effectively plotting against the 2nd Amendment or the 4th. Do you really still believe the Iraq War protected our freedoms?

Fool pot, meet fool kettle.

A John McCain, Barack Obama, even our own Alexander and Corker will do more to erode the US Constitution than any Mohammed, Kumar, or Ahmed over there.
