    This proves nothing. President Obama's former mentors created an organization with that ideology and they presented it to Obama. Now all of a sudden he wants to burn down the suburbs? Almost as outrageous as Michele Bachmann claiming the Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating the U.S. government because Huma Abedin's father's friend has ties to a company which works with the Muslim Brotherhood.
    You don't get it yet do you? Some extreme right wing whacko puts his paranoid delusions down on paper and other extremists print it for him. Now its out there that President Obama wants to burn down the suburbs, kill hard working Christian white folks, steal their wealth and give it to shiftless black criminals and welfare queens who will use it to buy new cadillacs, big screen TV's and a life time supply of spare ribs.

    And the 'reality' of that justifies the self imposed mental delusions of other right wing whacko's about assassinating government leaders who disagree with them on pubic policy.

    It makes perfect sense....... to them .....

    I know the meanings of the term, and I know your intent, which is to insult and attempt to degrade, as most people automatically envision the common usage in this country. If you wish to play coy, you're wasting your effort.

    My beliefs do not deny you any rights. You'd be assassinating someone because they believe we should have a marksmanship/safety test before being able to purchase a gun.

    Also, is having a fully functioning rifle a necessity if you just want to hang it on a wall so it looks pretty?

    You need to do far less mind reading and far more dictionary reading.

    It is interesting that anyone who criticizes the messiah Obama is labeled a "extreme right wing whacko with paranoid delusions"

    I guess the Clintons must be Extreme right wing whacks because they certainly have criticized His Eminence B H Obama

    you need to read better. I don't need to justify why I should be able to exercise a constitutional right even if my explanation is not suitable to someone who is clueless about rights or weapons.

    and I never said anything about assassinating anyone over a safety test

    but your suggestion has been soundly rejected by those who understand the issue

    Feel free to prove that charge with names and evidence.

    Yeah - I know - the mere thought of you actually proving your allegations is as funny as a comedians convention in the Catskills.

    we can start with you proving your accusations of "right wing extremists" and "paranoid delusions"

    but the love of Obama is touching.

    I merely pointed out that these charges have been made against Obama. I proved that fact

    I win
