Their sanction should be taken with a large grain of salt. Unless you want to live in the dark ages, that is. The cult loves the dark ages. Along with violence and oppression. The word tolerance is not in their vocabulary. And individual freedom? A non starter.
Only through brainwashing from infancy, and threats of violence, do they keep people from deserting.
False prophet, false religion. Too bad for all those followers falling into the ditch. comment by usgoosht on Islamic body issues fatwa against Russell Crowe's new 75million blockbuster Noah as three Arab countries ban it for 'violating Islamic law' by depicti 9 hours, 43 minutes ago

We can call it a peace-keeping operation. They're having demonstrations in favor of a drug lord, for crying out loud! A guy who was hanging bodies from overpasses and rolling heads across dance floors and torturing kidnapped citizens.
By southern Mexico, the border is really narrow. We could put border patrol 4 deep. And we could change the language to English so we could talk to the people cleaning our toilets and mowing our lawns. comment by usgoosht on Russia to the West: We're the good guys in Crimea Mar 4, 2014 12:09 AM [GMT]
A lot less southern border to patrol, and a bunch of new real estate to build a bubble with.
After all, there are probably three times the population of illegal Mexicans in the US than the total population of Baja. So we have a legitimate claim. At least, according to the standards of China and Russia. comment by usgoosht on At UN, US Blasts Russia Military Action in Ukraine Mar 3, 2014 11:55 PM [GMT]
Actually, this is probably part of a strategy to give Michelle national exposure and name recognition so she can pull a Hillary Clinton. Hey, if one zero (Barack, zero executive experience) can win the white house, why not another? comment by usgoosht on First Lady Michelle Obama to Travel to China March 19-26, 2014 Mar 3, 2014 9:26 PM [GMT]
In the modern era, the president should have a personal council of 3 to 5 of those ideal presidents to help him run the country. The smiling and waving, and glad-handing, the politics, that get him or her elected would still be his or her responsibility. The council wouldn't have the codes to the nuclear weapons, and wouldn't make the decisions, but they would indicate to the president what would be best for the country.
PS This crisis should be a lesson to other countries about allowing large minorities that don't have allegiance to their polity. Are you listening Mr Obama? Can your brilliant legal mind see the parallels to the US? comment by usgoosht on At AIPAC, John McCain blames Obamas feckless foreign policy for Ukraine crisis Mar 3, 2014 7:13 PM [GMT]
