ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
conspiracy nonsense
Prompted by the latest in a series of contentious political conversations on Facebook..............

The Obama Administration is now seven years and nine months old. For that entire time -- longer, really, going back to when Senator Obama became the Democratic nominee in the summer of 2008 -- we have been hearing from a particularly vocal subset of humans that President Obama was a secret Muslim who would impose Sharia Law, that President Obama was soft on terrorism and we'd be overrun by al-Qaeda or ISIS, that President Obama was going to declare martial law and declare himself dictator, that President Obama was going to take away your guns.

Here we are in October 2016, and there's been no sign of any of that. Two of the president's major accomplishments have been to provide affordable healthcare for millions of Americans (including me) and to kill Osama bin Laden. Meanwhile, gun ownership hasn't changed -- despite there being literally dozens of gun massacres, including ones of children -- and if he's going to impose martial and/or Sharia law, he really needs to get a move on, as there's only three months left..............

This is all, of course, purest hogwash, nonsense perpetrated by a) people who believe in idiotic conspiracy theories, b) virulent racists, or c) both.
