Inflation, and deflation, is everywhere and always a monetary phenomenon.
That they can't measure inflation properly because of their beliefs is no reason to forget what it really is. comment by usgoosht on Canadian Inflation Climbs 1.5% in December Jan 23, 2015 8:41 PM [GMT]
Next they'll be praising Kim Jong Un as a paragon of compassion for his people. No, wait! No oil there, so it's all right to be critical. comment by usgoosht on Wests praise of King Abdullah shows Saudi Arabia is exception to human rights stance Jan 23, 2015 8:34 PM [GMT]
Islam teaches that people aren't equal, Muslims are superior to non-Muslims. France teaches egalite.
Islam teaches that there is no separation between mosque and state. France has separation between church and state.
Islam teaches that there is no freedom of religion, that apostates should be killed. So much for sura 2:256, 'there is no coercion in religion'. France upholds freedom of religion.
Islam teaches that there is no freedom of speech. All speech is subject to the judgement of the mosque. France upholds freedom of speech.
Of course this is going to affect how she integrates and is viewed by greater society. She has to choose; join the modern world, or remain in the dark ages of her religion. comment by usgoosht on Charlie Hebdo attacks shine spotlight on Paris's neglected suburbs Jan 23, 2015 8:18 PM [GMT]
Saudi Arabia is a major source of Islamic terrorism around the world, and has been for decades. They should be a pariah country, shunned by every civilized nation.
The world made a big mistake in the early 90s when it prevented Saddam Hussein from cleaning house in Mecca and Medina. He was a vile autocrat, but he had the right idea about Islamic fundamentalism. If they had delayed for just another month, he would have eliminated all the wahhabi clerics, and ended the reign of the Sauds and the other gulf monarchs. What a boon that would have been for the region.
Today, Saudi Arabia might be a vibrant, secular member of the world community. comment by usgoosht on Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah dies at 90 Jan 23, 2015 7:44 PM [GMT]
I agree that anyone who wants to know about Islam should read the Koran and Hadith. And study the principle of abrogation, and the violent history.
If they do, and are objective, they won't be able to avoid coming to the conclusion that Mohammed was a manipulative con man. And Islam is a cult, a violent, destructive, dysfunctional cult. With Muslims as its victims. comment by usgoosht on Ayatollah Khamenei Appeals to Western Youth on Islam and Prejudice Jan 22, 2015 9:00 PM [GMT]
