    The derangement syndrome, really, get a hobby. You don't need a constant stream of manufactured outrage to get through your day...
    Are you saying that you get paid to post here?

    I have a hobby. It is posting on forums. And please refrain from attacking me. You do not know my mind, nor what I would or would not have thought about anything.

    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    Not attacking you, just attacking this mindset where something this stupid gets whipped up into a manufactured frenzy.

    His bowing to the keeper of the most Holy Islamic shrine, the King of Saudi Arabia, was another thing. But, then, Obama did say he is of the Muslim faith, though the reporter convinced him to change that to saying Christian faith.

    No problem with him shaking hands with Castro.
    Yes, like the Middle East he used his 'charm offensive', and this will probably provide similar results.

    I am an American citizen. As such, I have the right to criticize the president and the government. Now get off my butt.

    No wonder the left loves Cuba!
