Religion of Pieces, lots of them?

Why are we playing nice with these killers?

fdcol63

They are "well informed", just like liberals here in the US.

The problem is that they've been "well informed" with lies.

fdcol63

We should pull out of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and elsewhere.

Then create conditions so that "moderate" Muslims - if there are such people - police themselves and root out the jihadists and extremists among them.

Do this by making it very clear that if we suffer another attack from Muslims that we'll start targeting the major symbols of Islam itself.


First, we'll nuke Medina.

If they do it again, we'll nuke Mecca.

And if they continue, we'll nuke all the major Muslim capitals, starting with Tehran and Damascus.

A variety of commentators have suggested that there is positive correlation between the ideological valence of legal scholarship and the intellectual capacity of the author. In their most common form, these suggestions posit an association between "progressive" or "left leaning" political views, and "IQ" or "intelligence." Recent developments in content analysis and the measurement of inellectual capacity now permit empirical testing of these claims.

The results do not confirm the standard hypothesis. Siegel-Spaeth ideology scores that indicate "progressive" ideology were negatively correlated with the Stanford-Benet estimates.

I will note that the first mistake here is that the intelliegence test is the "Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale." That aside, this would indicate that based on these law review articles, that progressives aren't more intelligent than others.

Wearing the hijab & burning Bibles just makes us dhimmi. We are admitting their religious/political system is superior by our actions.

I am afraid the current "War on Terror" will eventually come down to just this...

First, we'll nuke Medina.

If they do it again, we'll nuke Mecca.

And if they continue, we'll nuke all the major Muslim capitals, starting with Tehran and Damascus.

Prophet

I suspect the next terror attack by these lunatics is going to be awful.

And I suspect the retaliation by the citizens of the US after watching the government do nothing to prevent or deter such attacks will be equally terrible.

After that next attack, there will be very few Muslims remaining in America.

Note, I am not advocating it but I do think this is a very likely result of the next attack.

OT and apparently not an April Fools joke-

LUN is the story on changes to the MCAT that should increase the diversity of the medical profession.

Of course it's on top of the quota system pushed via Obamacare.

Notice the comment later in the story that the new critical analysis will test info commonly taught in sociology and psych courses.

Good. Let's require coursetaking in that last bastion of traditional academics.

We are supposed to be postracial and these policies make stigma inevitable.

OldTimer

fdcol63 is absolutely right. We should have started this campaign 10 years ago. And then when the dust settled, we should have taken over their oil fields in lieu of our time and effort, and sold it back to them one exorbitantly priced barrel at a time.

And if we had done stateside what we should have done ten years ago, the US would be swimming in her own surplus energy sources. What a difference a "leader" would make.

Tom Bowler

"The incident began when thousands of protesters poured out of the Blue Mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif after Friday prayers..."

Rob Crawford

Yeah, but ten years ago all we heard from the Perpetually Concerned was that it would be a decade before any of that oil made a difference, so we did the right thing in not drilling.

WASHINGTON – The Pentagon is about to pull its attack planes out of the international air campaign in Libya, hoping NATO partners can take up the slack. The announcement Thursday drew incredulous reactions from some in Congress who wondered aloud why the Obama administration would bow out of a key element of the strategy for protecting Libyan civilians and crippling Muammar Qaddafi's army.



al Qaeda declares victory in 3 .. 2 .. 1 ..

matt

you want to think a character like Achmed the Dead Terrorist is a joke, and then are faced with the zealots in Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere.

Fighting season is just now heating up in Afghanistan, and I'll bet this was a recruiting tool by the zealots. They are most certainly not stupid.

We are going to see a lot of casualties this year. Obama wants out and he wants results. This means we put people in harm's way. Two sentences from a buddy in Afghanistan this morning sums it up.

"On the downside, seeing it from here has not changed my perception on the viablity of the Afghan government and armed forces. We would need another 10 years to make them competent and effective. It's a sad, sad story. Makes me miss Iraq."

Danube of Thought

It seems clear to me that there is abundant evidence to put before a grand jury and secure indictments of both Qaddafi and Musa Kusa for the murders of American citizens. If it were done, in the case of Musa Kusa we could promptly seek his extradition from the UK to the US and put the bastard on trial. I don't know why it isn't happening, but there's a hell of a lot that mystifies me these days.

Rob Crawford

DoT -- why trials? They're not deserving of them.

It's war, not crime-fighting.

Rick Ballard

"al Qaeda declares victory in 3 .. 2 .. 1 .."

Perhaps, but so what? The idiot Egyptians honored Mabarak for leading the Egpytian Army to victory over Israel. Besides, the President of the United States declared that BOzo's War would have a duration of days, not weeks and he appears to have meant it. The only thing left to do is publish the number of Libyan lives saved or created during the war in order to establish the magnitude of the victory.

fdcol has my vote as well. I'll vote for him twice if he promises to place Qom between Medina and Mecca in the order of strikes.

Jim @ 3.55 PM:

I started with Medina and Mecca to quickly grab their attention, rather than a tedious incremental increase from places like Qom, Najaf, and whatever other places.

But if you wanted to go there before hitting the capitals, I'm flexible.

And I have no desire to ever be a politician. LOL But like many of you, I'm afraid that our attempts to "be nice" will continue to be perceived by Muslims as weakness.

Thus they will make this scenario much more likely because we will eventually run out of patience when the next large scale attack comes.

Either that or we really are dead as a culture and ready for dhimmitude.

Seeing as Musa Kusa, did put a hit out on Crown Prince Now King Abdullah, I think the Sauds will chip in, toward the rebels,

A response...

The media, Schumer and Reid have called Tea Party folks like myself racists, "tea-baggers" and uncivil. Now they are calling us "extreme".

From the ground up...I'll speak for myself. I don't consider myself to be any of those things. I support individual freedoms and free enterprise. I don't consider that "extreme".

I do consider 3 years of deficits around $1.5 Trillion (10% of GDP) and no effort at all to deal w/ increases in federal government spending growth from 19.5% to 25% extreme and irresponsible. I understand the consequences to this kind of irresponsibility.

I do consider passing healthcare legislation, which rewards certain constituencies, at the expense of long term fiscal stability and consideration for the risks it puts on Main Street business (and employment in the middle of a recession) to be extreme.

I do consider the constant bailouts and favors smacking of corruption that are given to political favorites at the expense of taxpayers to be extreme compared to the country I grew up in.

The road you are taking this country down is not a road I want to go down. Call me whatever you want. That's not going to change.

I've always enjoyed MJW's comments, but they appear here less frequently than I'd prefer these days. She made an interesting point about the WI mess over at Shark and Shepherd. In rampant violation of her copyright, she said:

The case holding that neither a violation of the legislature's internal rules nor a violation of a statute specifying legislative procedure will be used to invalidate a law isn't Goodland, it's State ex rel. La Follette v. Stitt, 338 N.W.2d 684 (1983): “Unless the claim is that the legislative procedure violated some constitutional provision or right, this court will not, under separation of powers concepts and affording the comity and respect due a co-equal branch of state government, interfere with the conduct of legislative affairs.” In distinguishing Stitt from an earlier case, the Court strongly suggested it would not void legislative action due to a violation of the open meeting law:
"This is consistent with this court’s decision in State ex rel. Lynch v. Conta, 71 Wis. 2d 662, 239 N.W.2d 313 (1976). The issue in that case was whether certain legislators had violated the open meeting law and whether they could be subject to forfeitures for such violations. The case did not present the question of the voidability of legislative actions taken in violation of the open meeting law. We hold that we will not invalidate a legislative action unless the legislative procedures or statute itself constitutes a deprivation of constitutionally guaranteed rights."

What kinda ties everything together is that in State ex rel. La Follette v. Stitt, a promising young man named David Prosser filed an amicus brief objecting to the legislation. His position failed to carry the day in preventing the law from taking effect. Today he sits on the WI Supreme Court, where he may be asked to opine on a similar question. (To be fair, he thought the restrictions violated in the earlier cases were constitutional rather than statutory.)

Apologies to MJW--but it just isn't fair that we have to visit the comment sections of obscure blogs to receive her insights.

MarkO

The irreligious left cannot begin to fathom the destructive force of the Mohamatans’ faith. It is a power with which the left has no experience and of which no comprehension. Because religious faith is, by definition, irrational, no amount of theorizing can account for the willingness to stone or behead one’s own children. Quite literally, their rage has nothing to do with poverty, American aggression or Bush. It is driven by the words of their prophets and we fit the type of the Great Satan. It is their duty and glory to destroy us. The actions of the USA are irrelevant except to be viewed as vile, whatever they are. It is more powerful than any political or familial alliance.

It will not abate.

About all this war business about trying to determine who's the good guys or the bad guys over there, or even if there any, and will the media really ever try to report it:

While housecleaning last night came across some old letters I'd written to a friend eight years back mentioning the ancient Greeks. It was late 2003, so during Bush's first term and the MainStream Media had obviously been in full hate Bush AntiWar mode. I think I had been reading Victor David Hanson's Carnage and Culture, tho' it may have been something else, but the point I had forgotten and that struck me upon rereading last night was sort of my compilation of what the author mentioned, and my perception of the rabid media at the time:

"Another point thats added to my great appreciation of The Greek's honest evaluation of Human Nature, is their twin War gods, Aries and Athena. Coming of age in the late Vietnam days, and especially from the recent events of Gulf War 2, I constantly come across a rather simplistic, sloganeering attitude from the left; (ie) 'that Warfare, the military etc is just an unnecessary creation of simple minded, thick skulled, testosterone-filled cretinous males.'

Its an easily attributable caricature to the likes of Rumsfeldt, Bush, Cheney et al, quite broadly and easily painted on by the sneering opiner's of media, academia, and Hollywood.

Well the Greeks recognized that sort of alluring, neanderthalic bloodlusty attraction of passion filled bombast and belligerence in Aries, their male war God. Yet they aptly also crowned the Goddess of Wisdom, Athena, a Goddess of War, for the sort of much more reasoned, thoughtful side of a warrior---the individual driven to war by a protective necessity rather than by base natures of rapine and macho slaughter. In a relatively free society of egalitarian citizens valuing shared civic values (as were our Polis Greeks) the martial aspects embodied by Athena will reside in the individual hearts of men to at least an equal and probably a greater degree, than the simplistic militant barbarism so coyly bestowed on Conservatives. The Greek recognition of both those aspects of Human Nature I find wonderfully refreshing, especially after yet another week trapped in hotel rooms with the one-sided adolescent blather of CNN and the BBC."

That part about the Greeks impressed me, but even more so the contrast of how our MSM is generally still in the carrying water mode for this President.

And also from that letter mentioned above was this:

Take any 3 digit number of repeating digits (ie) 777, 666, etc, and divide it by the sum of adding those 3 digits (ie) 777 divided by 7 + 7 + 7, so 777 divided by 21. The answer will always be 37.

Must have been reading a math back.

in considering the fate of Moussa Kussa, Rahman Lama Ding Dong, and others of the Qadaffi loyalists, I think one humane option might be to send them to Saudi Arabia and see just how far the whole Islamic forgiveness thing goes.

" such an action could provoke violence in Afghanistan and could endanger American troops. Mr. Jones subsequently promised not to burn a Koran, but he nonetheless presided over a mock trial and then the burning of the Koran at his small church in Gainesville, Fla., on March 20, with only 30 worshipers attending.

The act drew little response worldwide, but provoked angry condemnation in this region, where it was reported in the local media and where anti-American sentiment already runs high."

Try Hebrews 11:1.
I did not say someone with faith was irrational, but you can argue with yourself if you wish.

Next, explain the rational basis for stoning. Or in believing in things unseen.

Faith is a wonderful blessing in life; a powerful force, but not a scientific fact.

If it is important to you to believe your faith (if that is the point) is rational, I will not get in your way.

Walter

DoT,

To square the circle, I finally got around to reading the WI appeals court punt to the WI Supremes. They hang their hat on a 2009 WI SC case in which the unions argued that the Court could not invalidate a law based on an alleged failure to follow statutory law-passing procedures, even if those procedures are related to Constitutional prohibitions. The unions lost.

So, to reiterate, everything old is new again and principled application of the law takes a back seat to outcomes in a particular case.

It's a great example of the reasons _not_ to have an elected judiciary. Or to have another martini. Or both.

There is nothing by definition irrational nor unreasonable about faith.

After all, these imams are surely at least as willing to die for Allah as the acolytes they minister to. Aren't they? If the Q'ur'an is any indication, they'd be ecstatic to lay down their lives in such glorious fashion. For Allah.

The irreligious left cannot begin to fathom the destructive force of the Mohamatans’ faith.

I think this is true. The left does not understand the power of religious beliefs. They USE the trappings of religion for their politics sometimes, but it has little to do with God.
I think it is why the left is so clueless about what Islam really teaches.
I believe the Bible, so I understand how Muslims can believe.

Ignatz
Sumi noted she has not yet found that lawmakers violated the open meetings law, but noted the Legislature could resolve the matter by passing the bill again. Andrew Welhouse, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau), said there are no plans to try to pass the bill again.

I read the above comment by Sumi a couple of days ago and lost it. Found it again at this site.
Even she is apparently advising the Repubs to just pass it again. I wonder what they think they have gained by not just ramming it through weeks ago, but instead playing this game of behaving as though the Dems' every dirty trick is legitimate.
Momentum is more easily lost in politics than sports especially when your opponents are crooks and liars.

IDoes anyone know what WI law says about whether an order granting a TRO is appealable as a "final order" or otherwise?

Under Federal Law they normally not appealable. But if they last too long or as a practical matter decide the case, they ripen into a de facto preliminary injunction which is appealable.

Is it possible they just won't have the votes for try number 2? Didn't a couple GOPers defect in the first vote?

I may be wrong, but I am going to go against the current here and predict a win for Prosser. I think the lack of private polls being released is easily explained.

So many questions and so many practical political decisions to make. Maybe that is what special counsel is working on.

I take comfort in knowing that Walker must have some political chops to have won in November and carried enough legislators with him to control both houses of the legislature.
