Maher is correct... AOW, Thank you for doing the job most Americans won't do by watching Bill Maher, the human stopped clock. He is wrong on sooo many things. My opinion of him is not elevated, however, since his observation that muslim beliefs and culture sucks is kind of a mister obvious to sane people.
All you say, and say well, is true. But that he's willing to say what he does, on air, risking his gig, if not his life, is laudatory.
The "moonbat" votes-uuuggg!
Jon, Who knows? Maybe she's a college professor, too.
For the life of me I cannot figure out how even so called moderate Muslims can find anything appealing about the Koran. I read it many years ago, and its call mystifies me. I can find worthiness in other various religions... but this one escapes me. Then we have these Imams dictating.....
I suppose there are isolated portions that hold appeal. But overall the Koran is a mish mash and a boring slog.
It makes my ears bleed to listen to western dhimmibulbs like that woman spout inanities, canned slogans and trite phrases from the little red book. Does she and the millions of other apologists realize that they are not forming arguments, not debating, not using logic and reason, but rather just repeating propaganda?Maher's money quote came just after the 6 minute mark when he paraphrased the Muslim woman he had on his show a week earlier. That Muslim woman is right: Women like that blathering guest next to Maher are the problem. They throw up multi-culti, diversity and scream about hatred, etc, and in doing so they block meaningful dialog and shield many Muslim sitting in the middle from a rational examination of what is going on in their culture.Indeed, the vast majority of Muslims commit no violence, honor killings, terrorism, etc, but as polls consistently show, a disturbingly large number quietly countenance it or don't have a problem with others committing such acts. Those are the millions of "good men" doing nothing as evil triumphs.
Let me begin by saying I don't care and I don't have to care about what Muslims are doing to themselves and each other in their own lands. America is great because just about everywhere else sucks. Female genital mutilation? Honor killings? Preaching violence and spreading hate? By all means, crack down on it vigorously - in America. If Muslims want to do that crap, let them do it where they are welcomed to do that.Diversity is nice, but no one is substituting cayenne pepper for sugar in the cheesecake recipe. They can be diverse by being somewhere else.
Humanitarian crises are only crises for humanitarians. Let's solve the problems we can. We can stop Islamic terrorism on our slice of dirt.
I'm blogging on this topic tomorrow at Western Hero, btw...
SF,I'll try to make a point to visit that post, which will be about a topic that keenly interests me, but I may arrive later than usual. Since last Monday, I've been on a schedule treadmill like you wouldn't believe! On top of being quite ill.
Dear Lord, Please bring healing to AOW quickly.
Ed,Thanks, Ed. This "gut thing" is a misery -- not a virus, clearly. It all stated with the chicken pox vaccine, then flared up again after the Paris attacks. Combination of factors, I'm sure.
Even today, Obama still insists that ISIS is not the varsity team:http://www.politico.com/story/2015/11/obama-isil-terrorism-fear-216130Perseverating!
If the Government is saying that their vetting system is legit,then why won't they release the background checks of the refugees coming to the united states especially to a Governor of a state..."the White House told him he would not be allowed background check details of any of the refugees who would be brought to Florida". ITS probably because the Admin.,has no information on the refugees because the Government can't vet each and every refugees..There is no data base to cross check each refugee in Syria...When the country had that mass exodus from the people from Central America last yr,I can assure you they didn't go thru an 18 month vetting system,they just showed up at the southern border with just the clothes on their backs,and the Government called them refugees...So what is the difference between those so called refugees and the refugees coming from Syria??? The president has his head so far up his butt,he suffers from anal glaucoma...
Anal glaucoma? What a useful phrase!
Reminds me of the phrase I coined years ago... "Rectal blindfolds.."

Too bad this pathetic whine has no clue what the successful weave of diversity is. England was built on true diversity. Escapees/imports from the continent brought a host of skills to build a nation. They also brought a host of differences that could tear one down. For it was truly a diverse lot - from the Pope's Lombard bankers who counted the haul in churches (Lombard Street in London is still the financial center of the capital), to Huguenots who made London the clockmaker capital of the world, to Dutch dam builders, German miners and so one, diverse languages, customs etc. woven together on a core structure of Christian religion, a deeply engrained sense of 'fairness' that seems to pre-date the Romans, and a legal system that protected freedom of contract. Ms. Moonbat will observe there were core commonalties here - even with whopping differences. Immigrants bought into the British code of law, and while religious differences got extreme at times, they all centered around the common vocabulary and core assumptions of ONE religion (except for the despicable history of the Jews in the 12th and 13th centuries). I suggest her 'diversity' is code for "I have emptied myself of my culture’s good traditions and values so we might as well have yours. Maybe we'll all find meaning together." Pitiful.
I don't always agree with Maher, but I love that he pisses off everyone. The Canadian woman is a twit.
Via the Associated Press:Brussels to stay on highest threat alert into Monday Authorities will keep the Belgian capital on the highest state of alert into Monday's start of the workweek because of the "serious and imminent" threat of a Paris-style attack, the prime minister said.Schools and universities in Brussels will be closed, and the city's subway will remain shut down, government officials decided at a meeting Sunday of the country's National Security Council.With one suspect in the Nov. 13 attacks in France last seen crossing into Belgium, officials in Brussels kept much of the city shut down during the weekend. Officials also recommended that sports competitions and all activities in public buildings be cancelled, and malls and commercial centers closed....
As Bill Maher says: Bull Shit!Saudi Arabia is sponsoring and financing one of the most extreme and violent forms of Islamic hatred, Wahhabism. They've built mosques on every continent preaching this extremist hatred. And yet ...Saudi Arabia is a supposed ally in this phony war against ISIS. And it's not politically partisan either. Both Presidents, George W. Bush and Barrack Obama have bent over and bowed down to the king of Saudi Arabia. Bush even going so far as to kiss him. Who knows what Obama might have done?Perhaps there is some light at the end of the tunnel, though. Virginia State Senator, Richard Black, boldly states:" President Bashar al-Assad on Tuesday received a letter from U.S. Senator for the State of Virginia Richard Black in which he said: “I was pleased by the Russians’ intervention against the armies invading Syria. With their support, the Syrian Army has made dramatic strides against the terrorists”. “I was delighted by Syria’s resounding victory over ISIS at the Kuwairis Airfield. My compliments to those who heroically rescued 1,000 brave Syrian soldiers from certain death. I am convinced that many such victories lie ahead”, Black added.The Senator asserted that the war on Syria was not caused by domestic unrest, saying: “It was an unlawful war of aggression by foreign powers determined to force a puppet regime on Syria. General Wesley Clark, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe, revealed that by 2001, Western powers had developed plans to overthrow Syria. Yet after fifteen years, of military subversion, NATO, Saudi Arabia and Qatar still cannot identify a single leader who enjoys popular support among the Syrian people”. “Foreign powers have no right to overturn legitimate elections and impose their will on the Syrian people. Syrians alone must determine their destiny, free of foreign intervention. I am disappointed that the UN has turned a blind eye to the unlawful interference in Syria’s internal affairs”, he added.He went on to note that “Before the war began, Syria had the greatest religious freedom and women’s equality of any Arab people. Many Americans are surprised to learn that the Syrian Constitution provides for free elections, religious freedom, women’s rights, and the Rule of Law. Before criticizing Syria, the U.S. might first insist that our allies – Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Kuwait – grant similar freedoms to their own people”.http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article43500.htm
Waylon,Wahhabism did indeed hatch ISIS.
It's a mental disease. What do these individuals hope to gain by inviting moslems in. At the very Least, they will be in welfare the entire life because they are unemployable. Plus they are intentionally moving to where idiots will put them on welfare because the koran tells them that the Infidels will pay their way.individuals like her will never get a clue. They could cut her head off and she would not get a clue before being dismembered. These individuals are as dangerous as the moslem vermin themselves. All you have to know about is what it going on all over Europe. If the moslem invader is not doing violence, it is planning to breed out the civilizations in all of these EU countries.Man, what a bad idea the EU was. Let those parasitic countries fail one by one and teach the rest of the world that socialism is a path to failure. And ironically, the idiots show worship Evolution would freak out watching Socialist Europe Evolve.But what else is new to a large group of individuals suffering from a severe mental disease.
Kid,People such as the female moonbat in the video are indeed incapable of getting a clue. **sigh**
AOW, Are you moderating out the morons? If so, I think it's great. I wish everyone did. Let them live in their leper colonies echoing their ignorance back and forth. That may be the key to having them actually learn something.
Kid,I am intermittently using comment moderation. I have lost patience with trolls and harassers. As you said, they can enjoy life in their leper colonies.
Dang AOW. I pray that you get well soon. Bad health reminds you how bad things can really get outside of everything else going on - meaning Nothing is any good if you don't have health.
Kid,Thanks.I felt a bit better last night. I think that I'm going to have to take aloe juice twice a day to curb my gut problems.
AOW, please consider long-cooked bone broths. Not to put down aloe, which can be marvelous, but broths are powerfully healing to the gut. (This is the basis of Dr. Campbell-McBride's GAPS diet, which I sense you might know of if not all about.) It's best when you get enough gelatin in it to make it stiff when cool. When we felt punky this weekend I made chicken soup with broth cooked before with lots of backs and feet. I wish I were down the street so I could run over with some. :)I attended the Weston Price Foundation's annual conference here a week ago - so this is all very fresh in my mind (and tummy!)http://www.westonaprice.org/beginner-videos/stocks-and-soups-video-by-sarah-pope/
Baysider,Can I buy long-cooked bone broths somewhere? I'm a terrible soup maker!What about probiotics? Any recommendations? All this trouble first started with the chicken pox vaccines I got in August and September. The chicken pox vaccine is a live vaccine.
Just get some oxtail or diced beef shin, dice it up, fry it gently with onions, mushrooms, carrots and whatever else you fancy, cover with water and simmer for about 3 hours. If you want to get fancy you can (eg. spices [maybe star anise, garlic, cinnamon], red wine etc.), but this isn't cooking, it's magic so it can't go wrong. The only thing that needs to happen for this to be delicious is the meat's collagen (connective tissue) to soften, and for that to happen the meat wants to reach 130F or so, and remain at that temperature for a long time. Give it a go!
Yes, you can. I buy them from a farmer in Pennsylvania more and more now. And I bought some at the WAPF convention from a farm in Virginia just outside Washington! Cooking takes time. Convergentsum's suggestion looks yummy, but long-cooked means 36-48 hours. (If you are very highly sensitive to MSG start with shorter cooking, as more of the natural glutamates come out later in cooking. I'm sensitive, but the long cooked don't trigger in me, so this may be an over caution.)OMG, I had forgotten about the vaccine!! Short version: They frequently damage the gut. Many times this leads to neurological symptoms since many neural chemicals are made in a healthy gut. At the core of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride's GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet is recovery for kids with autism (her son - hence her work) that starts with healing the gut. Broths do that. And naturally fermented veggies help restore. I'm sending you some specifics off-line.
Baysider,Until I have evidence to the contrary, I'm blaming my gut problems on a combination of the vaccine and watching too much grim news. Typically, I don't overstress, and I think that the vaccine started this cascade of gut problems.Will check that email account when I next access my laptop. Right now, I'm using my iPad.
