But, one, I had to share my great news that, after seven months, I'm finally stable on Coumadin! My nurse called on Friday to tell me that I've had my fifth therapeutic INR in a row which means I can finally go to getting my blood checked once a month instead of every week or two. Which is great because my veins are freekishly small and having to get poked so often -- and frequently multiple times in order to get the precious blood -- really, truly sucks (I always joke that I'd make a crappy heroin addict). Plus, it makes me a bit more mobile, i.e. once I feel well enough I can get on a plane and go visit my sister in Baltimore for a few weeks or A. in England.
Two, after my last post I had to share that someone found my blog googling "barack obama wahabbist school" (as well as "perfume urine nuns" -- huh?). I clicked on the link to the Goggle search and came across a link to RightNation.us, American's #1 Conservative Community, where I laughed my ass off at the thread about Barak Obama being a stealth Muslim.
Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (black muslim) of Nyangoma-Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya, and Ann Dunham of Wichita, Kansas. (white atheist ).
A black muslim and white atheist -- oh my! Is his wife a Satanist too?
His mother married Lolo Soetoro -- a Muslim -- moving to Jakarta with Obama when he was six years old.
Well, you know the saying, once you go Muslim you can never go back!
Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim while admitting that he was once a Muslim, mitigating that damning information by saying that, for two years, he also attended a Catholic school.
Muslim? Catholic? Oh the humanity!
Obama's father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was a radical Muslim who migrated from Kenya to Jakarta, Indonesia.
Radical? You mean there is another kind of Muslim?
Is anyone other than me worried about this? About the swearing in of a Minnesota Muslim? Anyone have comments about the lack of ANY spotlights on on Obama's affiliations? Have we totally given up the ghost?
The Muslims are coming! the Muslims are coming!
One reason I don't have any doubts about his phony story as well as the implications from it is, he has never been condemned by ANY Muslim whether NOI, or the cult of the middle east for his so-called 'conversion'. According to Islams mandate, his family is guilty of Apostasy, and at the minimum they would shun him if not kill him and his mother. The fact they are eagerly welcomed by the Muslim community tells me he's likely their 'Manchurian' candidate. Here's hoping a similar fate awaits the entire family!Those sneaky Muslims have no shame! So smart and -- wait, I thought they were too emotional and childish to be smart? I mean, that's why they need our help to develop a government and our -- oops, I meant, their oil fields. (Gawd, can't ya just feel the love and peace there?)
Note: There are no 'practicing' devout moderate Muslims. A moderate Muslim is one who doesn't follow the faith, but does not disavow it, or openly convert to another faith out of fear.
Ah, so all those Muslims I met at the mosque praying who were pro-choice or thought Osama Bin Laden was evil were just faking it. How canny you are, Mr. Conservative-who-hasn't-stepped-inside-a-mosque-a-day-in-his-life!
As for the numbers of these people, judging from news reports, videos of the 'people' on the streets of the 'Muslim world', the so-called minority of radical Jihadi's out-number the true number of 'moderate' muslim members of the world community 100,000 fold.
And so scientific too!
That book calls for the subjugation (enslavement), or death of non-believers
What verse was that again?
and not in the sense of something like the Old Testament
And what sense would that be? Like where God demands genocide in the book of Joshua?
Of course! This must be Usama's latest attempt to attack us!! By placing a sleeper agent within our elected government he'll be able to defeat the Great Satan! Who needs bombs when he can attack us with things like socialized medicine, high taxes, increased availability of abortion, and gay rights! Clearly his belief that we need to redeploy out of Iraq is part of a secret plot to set up a new caliphate in Iraq!!! Once he is elected president he'll whip out his Q'ran that he's been hiding in his secret lair/mosque, swear his oath, and then he'll immediately make Wahabbist Islam the official religion of the US, enact martial law, and start the forced conversions!
Hey...are you being sarcastic? No?
First, it makes little difference to me who the "Arab and Muslim streets" considers Muslim. The Arab street also thinks that the Holocaust never occurred but that it sounds like a nifty idea
Which Arab street is this again?
There is a very simple question which someone needs to put to Obama, not that I think anyone will ask it or that he would answer honestly.
"Are you a Christian and have you confessed that you are a sinner and have accepted Jesus Christ as your Saviour" ?
Anyone can attend church and profess to be a Christian without acknowledging Christ as their Saviour. So far as I know a muslim would be presented with a serious problem in answering this question honestly. Of course Barak could cross his fingers and lie. That would be the muslim way after all.
Which way is this? I don't remember learning about it when I went to Islamic school.
Yes, that's right. I went to Islamic school when I was an undergraduate in order to learn what Muslims really believe (though, apparently, the good folks at RightNation.us know far more than my Muslim teachers did).
Wow. Seriously. All I can say is...wow. And we think Muslims are all simplistic and brainwashed?
Apparently I'm not the only one who has come across this fear-mongering. Christopher Hays over at The Nation also posted the email that began the thread at RightNation.us. And he correctly points out that "madrassa" does not mean "terrorist training school" but rather an Islamic school in the same way that yeshiva is a religious school for Jews. Madrasa means "school" in Arabic, as in roht 'ila al-madrasa fi Milwaukie, Oregon -- "I went to school in Milwaukie, Oregon."
And hey, who knows? Maybe the commenter who said he/she was was googling Obama's going to a madrassa was the one who found his/her way to my blog, where apparently I've been discussing a new perfume all the nuns are wearing -- Le Urine...
