No wonder our country is falling apart at the seams. Our country is now full of paranoids.

Yeah, paranoids that monitor every phone call and email, paranoids that use face scanning cameras/software in certain cities, etc technologies paranoids can use to monitor or control others. These professional paranoids spy on everything regardless of what the US constitution says about warrantless searches and seizures.

You get the idea.

A digitally doctored birth certificate was posted on the WH website, so, I dont believe much posted there.

man landed on the Moon, Obama was born in Hawaii. 
I remember an email that went around before Obama was elected that insisted he was a Muslim who would refuse to swear in on a Bible. 
But he is a Christian and had no problem swearing in on a Bible.  The birther nonsense just feeds off fear and innuendo.

Mark Twain had it right:

"a lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is still putting its boots on"

Noone wants to take away your radio or your legitimate guns.  But if ham radio manufacturers see how much the gun industry increased its sales by spreading fear that the big bad govt wants to take away your guns, they may start fanning the same kind of flames  Wink

Fact is, there are MILLIONS of people who would love to take your guns and radios away. Witness the gun control lobby, some parts of the entertainment industry devoting whole TV episodes or movies propagandizing with falsehoods against gun ownership, or the housing associations hunting for your stealth antennas, or the industry groups drooling over amateur radio spectrum, polluting the airwaves with broadband over powerlines, etc.

It's both wrong to think that Obama is the Antichrist, and to think he is Christ. Obama's just a guy doing a job, based on what he believes is the right and most beneficial way to do it.

Pretending that he's about to knock down your doors and shoot your family is about equally crazy to thinking that nobody wants to change your way of life for the worse.

The truth lies in between these extremes somewhere.

As for the secret Muslim nonsense, while only the truly mental thought that Obama was going to turn the US into the Caliphate, there was actually a kernel of truth in that some Islamist extremists see Obama as a fallen Muslim: They want to punish him for being an apostate. The end result would be the same though, since the Islamists extremists would hate the president whether he was named McCain or Obama.

There may be millions who want to put restrictions on gun ownership; but I doubt there are millions who want to eliminate it altogether.  Many favor licensing similar to motor vehicle licensing to promote safe and competent ownership of firearms.   And gun owners who aren't too convinced the govt is out to take away their gun (s) think testing and licensing is a good idea too.  America is the most armed nation on Earth; problem is math and science may be more dangerous and powerful and we're not the most educated nation in these areas.

Yes there are commercial interests which might want to buy govt into taking away some ham spectrum; but most politicians realize it might not be a good political move and they already get plenty of other handouts from more powerful commercial interests.
