I was thinking "Damn, I want to retire to New Zealand..." Oh well. Anyone care to place a bet against this guy (John?) being "on a trip" actually calling back with his so called proof?
I attempted to call back with the references, but was told I can only call once a week. I was also cut off.
If you would like references I spoke of, I would be happy to share them with you. I do not hate Muslims, I only want the truth to be out there that I as a Christian am not expected to use force against anyone who does not believe what I believe. The Korna does call their belivers to use force and murder those who do not believe what they do. So you tell me who is more tolerant. You do not have to believe what I do, and that is okay. Do not think of me as a bigot or anything else. If you believe in something, you believe in it. I will assume you believe I should work more to provide more benefits for those who do not work. It is not those who will not work. There is a scriprture I will give you the reference if you want in the New Testament that says "If a man WILL not work, neither should he eat". It does not say cannot work, but will not. I spent 20 years defending your right to feel as you do in the United States Air Force and when I got out with a wife and a 2 year old daughter, I worked for $7 an hour to take care of my family rather than taking Federal or State benefits. Thankfully, I am much better financially today but that was 4 years ago. What I want to say to some people is, if things are so much better somewhere else, why don't you go there. I spent years around the world and my country is not perfect, but there is no place I would rather live. Why do so many come legally, or ILLEGALLY to my country. You could always retire to New Zealand.
I am not on a trip, and my name is Joe not John. Again I attempted to call back and was not allowed.
Why was Larisa Oleynik mentioned specifically? She's certainly not the only celebrity to take out a restraining order.
I should have proof read my typing, I meant to type I WOULD LIKE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE REFERENCES.
What is the likelyhood of drones being used for much domestically, based on the cost of running them? How does it compare to the cost of a stakeout?
This is a problem with the internet age. You are able to just say whatever you want without having to back it up. If you will possibly listen, I am more than happy to give you references.
Verse 9:123 - "Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you."
Verse 48:29 - "Muhammad is Allah's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another."
Verse 66:9 - "Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home, evil their fate."
The discussion I attempted to have with Thom was, we are not the same and Islam is not as tolerant as what I believe. Again, I do not hate Muslims. But the truth is the truth whether you choose to believe it or not. The world is round, regardless that in 1491 people believed it was flat. The earth did not become round in
I'll just go ahead and agree with Jamie Dimon. I don't have the will to enact austerity measures
... because I'm not an idiot, like he is.
Bin Laden should have been angry at the Saudi government for letting the U.S. build a base there. It's like the old story of transporting a snake that eventually bites you. You can't blame the snake.
It also reminds me of Christian fundamentalists here. When they think their kids don't get enough religion, they complain about the schools. But they should be complaining about the quality of their church, because it's not the school's job to provide religion.
The Mexican drone scenario is implausible because the U.S. would work with Mexico to find the drug lord and extradite him. So the excuse for drone strikes in Afghanistan must be based on not being able to trust the Afghan government to do the same with al-Qaeda operatives.
However, I think the scenario is useful in demonstrating why Afghans aren't turning into friends.
