In Afghanistan the soldiers call the Westboro Baptist Church members(who protest at their funerals) the Taliban without the suicide vests.

"Christian value BS".

Really!

Do you realize just how silly, uninformed and offensive you sound?

Please re-read the Declaration, the preambles to each of the 50 states Constitutions, the Federalist Papers, and any authentic writings of our Founders before you make any more embarrassing comments.

Comparing ANY American to any flipping muslim brotherhood is an insult to all Americans.

The Lord did not send us obama, He just did not prevent us from rejecting one who does not represent our American values.

Maybe He will open our eyes next time.

The NeoCon Republicans are Muslim Brotherhood like wannabees. They would do the same to us with their Christian value BS being pushed upon the people through their politics. Thank the Lord that He sent us Barack Obama to stop them and save us.

Never--your comparison is valid. The Christian Taliban is daily, actively trying to move America to a Theocratic form of government. They want THEIR religion established in public schools, they are using THEIR religion to abolish freedom of choice. They have used THEIR religion to emasculate the will of the majority on these and countless other issues of public import. And the most radical of them have repeatedly turned to violence to accomplish their goals.

Neversummer, the US religious conservates have never tried to make other religions illegal. They have never made laws which make conversion to other relgions punishable by death. They do not burn down houses of worship of other religious groups, they do not actively and aggressively try to wipe out people of other (or of no) faiths. All this the Islamists do in the middle east and Africa. They want nothing short of genocide. To compare what they do with anything that any US religious right or conversative group does is ludicrous.

These Islamists in Egypt remind of the religious fundamentalists here in the US.

The whole mindset of only legitimate power is us. Absolutely NO to any other ideas. The party of 'NO' is a good term for it.

If the Trib would just run a list of all of obama's executive orders which circumvent our elected congressional representatives, we would all be shocked at the number of orders and the wide ranging powers they assume.

"Don't legislate, regulate". Say the emperor's unelected, non-senate approved czars.

In the news today, a Coptic Christian priest was murdered by Muslims in Egypt in an act of sectarian violence. It doesn't matter who is in charge, the radical Muslims slowly but surely continue their reign of terror world-wide.

Why can't the Tribune produce articles informing its readers of Obama's actions.

Obama is attacking the USA on all fronts.

Obama and Morsi and a s s hole buddies, Morsi is a radical, birds of feathers flock together, what does that tell you about Obama?

"US President Barack Obama quietly signed his name to an Executive Order on Friday, allowing the White House to control all private communications in the country in the name of national security.

President Obama released his latest Executive Order on Friday, July 6, a 2,205-word statement offered as the “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.” And although the president chose not to commemorate the signing with much fanfare, the powers he provides to himself and the federal government under the latest order are among the most far-reaching yet of any of his executive decisions."
