Islam is not compatible with Western Civilization. It really and truly is that simple.

Individual Muslims may be fine people and good neighbors and wonderful coworkers. But Islam as a philosophy, as a set of rules for living, and as a mass movement, does not fit with the society and civilization we (for now, despite the best efforts of the progressives) live in.

The only question is how high our body count will go before we finally, as a society, accept that simple fact.

Uh huh - that is why visitors to Amish country tremble in fear.

Don't think I don't see what you did there.

Ah, yes.......

A local boy kicked me in the butt last week
I just smiled at him and turned the other cheek
I really don't care, in fact I wish him well
'Cause I'll be laughing my head off when he's burning in hell
But I ain't never punched a tourist even if he deserved it
An Amish with a 'tude? You know that's unheard of

We don't fight, we all play nice

Why not be more liberal and agree that the migrants have the right to their ages-old attitudes and behaviors?

Wonder how this guy feels about "ages-old" Christian "attitudes and behaviours"? Wait. I don't really wonder all that much.

Surprised the libtard Muslim enablers didn't tell them to lie back and think of Germany.

Senator Collins joined Jeb Bush at a campaign stop in Portsmouth today. She said he'll do better as he meets more people. He'd better hurry and meet more people than were in the cafe where they held the event.

Marlene,

The man has been a two-term governor, came from a large political family, and has been in the corporate world for the last 7 years.

Has he been sitting in a small office all by himself just thinking? Has he forgotten how to talk to people?

I think we have a better chance of winning than losing, Buckeye. If we play like we did last week then I'd put the likelihood at about 80%, but teams rarely perform to that level sequentially.

Clemson has an excellent team with loads of talent, and Dabo is no slouch. Should be entertaining!

MY USA TODAY COLUMN: Should The Navy Go To A Big Fleet / Small Ships Doctrine?

Here is the sort of data mining we count on Rick to find:

Some 122,470 Hong Kong firms were shuttered in 2015, according to data from the city's Companies Registry compiled by financial research platform Webb-site.com. China, the mainstay of the city's economy, trundled to its slowest economic growth in a quarter of a century and spending by mainland visitors dried up."

Heck of a screen-grab, Jeff!!

I have enough game day heart palpitations without risking money, lyle! lol

I saw a minite or two of Clenis on one of the late shows about six months ago. He looked worse than Keith Richards. His voice and mannerisms were very stunted. A bit shocking.

Jack is Back (but On Alert)!

I don't think Bama has played a QB like DeShaun Watson and only have one week to prepare for him. I doubt Bama has anyone on the practice squad who can emulate him. He is faster, more athletic and a stronger arm than Cam Newton in college. If Bama can stop him from improvising or making runs past the DL and LB's then they win. Buy if Watson gets his way its Clemson's to lose.

Looks like they got wind of it and cleaned it up, Jeff.

This bit of pandering to Iowans from Cruz is disappointing, though he still plans to phase it out. But is winning Iowa that important to damage your rep like this?

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/cruz-changes-position-embraces-current-ethanol-mandate-ethanol-lobby-applauds/article/2579743

lyle

OK, Jack, I'll play devil's advocate. I don't think Clemson's D has seen a running back as big and powerful as Henry and have only a week to prepare.

jimmyk on iPhone

"Looks like they got wind of it and cleaned it up, Jeff."

So was it really there, or was this one of Jeff's brilliant photoshops? Hard to believe they could be that stupid to put that up there. But if they did, that screen grab should go viral.

Texas Liberty Gal

I think Cruz has a good compromise with his remarks on
ethanol-I don't see it as pandering.

Jack is Back (but On Alert)!

lyle,

Henry is one dimensional. Much easier to prepare for a running back than a guy like Watson. I get your point but I have seen both teams play and Clemson is good in all 3 aspects, offense, defense and special teams.

Don't discount them.

TLG, it's only that it seems to be a change from his position just 2 years ago.

Beasts of England

We thumped Dak Prescott pretty thoroughly on the road and he's a top-drawer dual threat guy. It was his only game as a starter without a touchdown. Watson is possibly better, but I'm not too worried.

Yeah, but look at that first screen grab I put on the thread regarding the Amish - note no URL bar in that. I use a tool called Snip Tool that allows you to highlight sections of your screen, rather than a print screen like tool that takes a pic of whatever window is active.......

Just claim you got the document from Lucy Ramirez, Jeff. Presto. Instant validation. Maybe even get your own book turned into a movie by a guy who looks like an old lesbian.

Today we brought the dog to the doggy beach. The dogs are all well behaved and have a blast playing in the water and fetching.
The labs and goldens and other sporting dogs love the water. The large dogs are very gentle and play with the small dogs. Our dog mostly sits on the beach and looks cute. Ha.
Because he is a "Toto" I imagine him thinking,we're not in Maine anymore!

Jeff Dobbs,

I was addressing the reason you provided for the break:

I had to piece together two screenshots to show the top with the wh header and the bottom with the stage instructions.

And now that I read what you actually wrote, I see that *I* was wrong since "wh header" likely means wh banner.

Got it, FTL, it was all slapdash on my part.

I don't have hours and hours for photoshopping, so whatever I could pull together in 10 minutes worth of 'shopping would have to do.

The SEC rivals the 2nd tier NFL teams, so I'll just watch. No dogs in this hunt. I do like it that when you drive into Clemson the tiger paw tracks are painted on the main road.

It's raining hard now. We expect this to go on and off for the next week. So far the aquifer is sucking up as much as it can and the main arroyo @ 400 yards from here doesn't look to be doing much. Sand bagged some nasty mud flow on the hillside last night.Git some good exercise shoveling mud.

I have to say our county workers are, so far, awesome. They had a Bobcat scraping up mud on the road last night and have kept the sand bags and hay bales replenished.

Trying to walk the hounds when it slacks off. They don't seem to like the mud too much and so are self policing. We've re-named the Aussie Lassie as he rats out the others on a regular basis. It's pretty funny. He's become very useful with the exception of his his murderous attitude towards the cat.

Heloise, the Buff Orpington, thinks shes a pet and now jumps up and waits to be petted. Most of the chickens are laying now so we have plenty of eggs. That actually came in useful with the added baking at Christmas.

We have the bird feeders, which makes interesting watching. Lots of woodpeckers, finches, and dove.

This is all very different from where we used to live. And I wouldn't trade it for the world.

It has been an odd sight here too, Matt. A county official said they have had the "temporary emergency permits" ready so they can keep the concrete drain channels clear of debris. The crews have been working fairly diligently.

Of course they wouldn't be working so hard if they didn't need environmental exemptions to clean man made culverts and were maintaining them all year.

Frau Hallo!

Fearful of stigmatizing migrants as potential rapists and playing into the hands of anti-immigrant politicians, most European countries have avoided addressing the question of whether men arriving from more conservative societies might get the wrong idea once they move to places where it can seem as if anything goes.

Donnerwetter! The New Year's "exuberance" in Cologne is a shock to all the Gutmenschen who welcomed the invasion.

Jack is Back (but On Alert)!

BoE,

Dak Prescott is no Watson by any stretch of the imagination and how has Saban's defenses done against other multi-threat QB's like Cam Newton, Tim Tebow and Johnny Manzeil?

Watson is only the 3rd QB in college history to pass for over 3,500 yards and rush for 1,000. I still say he will out rush Derrick Henry in the game.

Want scary? He is only a Sophmore and did all that above coming off ACL surgery.

This will not be a repeat of the MSU game.

What an amazingly malleable word, "conservative." Describing lyle, it's a spitting pejorative. Describing a swarthy male of northern African or Middle Eastern derivation, it magically turns into a vague descriptor to let the reader feel assuaged that these men are hardly menacing, just culturally misguided. Orwell would be impressed, to say nothing of Gramsci.

You joke, right? Every NFL team would destroy any college team by a gazillion points. In college, you may have 5 to 6 players who can even get drafted to the NFL and that is from the dominant Super 5 participants. In the NFL, everyone is a selected member.

The difference between elite college football and mediocre NFL is quantum in favor of mediocre NFL. No contest by miles and miles and miles.

Miss Marple

It is both political and personal, lyle. They hate him because he is very conservative. They also hate him because he's from Texas, he's Cuban, he got a degree from Princeton (!), and is married to a former Goldman Sachs employee.

I am not that fond of Cruz, even though I agree with 90% of his positions. I think he will not appeal to the middle and LIV's, no matter how much he speaks. That is probably something psychological with me, so take it for what it's worth.

Instead of us adapting to the conservative lifestyle of moozlums, I suggest the moozlums stay home and we can adapt if/when we decide to visit them.

The Wikipedia article on the Cologne mayor is brief, but interesting.

"Henriette Reker (born 9 December 1956) is a German lawyer and independent politician. She is known for her pro-Muslim immigration stance which saw an attempt on her life. A day after the assassination attempt, Reker was elected mayor of Cologne in 2015 after gaining 52.66% of the votes.[1] She is the first female mayor elected in Cologne's history."

She had the support of all the politiical parties -- the CDU, the FDP, and the Greens -- except the Social Democrats.

(BTW, she was stabbed in the neck, so I think we can conclude that it was a serious assassination attempt.)
