Thank you Joe, and also, I think that we should be speaking and writing about the situation around the Iranian's nuclear program has been getting more, and more heated every day. Ahmadinejad threatens to wipe Israel off the face of the earth every time he has the chance to speak. And our relations with our one time best ally Israel has never as cold as it is today. In fact just today it was reported that the White House (and the White House really means Barack Hussein Obama) DECLINED NETANYAHU'S REQUEST TO MEET WITH OBAMA. How's that my Jewish friends? Still what to vote for this man? Still impressed with him? What this man has done to this country is unforgivable.

Today Egyptian protesters raided the US Embassy in Cairo, climbed over the gates and tore down OUR flag burned it, and replaced it with a Black Islamist flag to protest a U.S. produced film that they didn’t like! The mob was chanting that our ambassador must leave.

Is this why Obama took part in overthrowing Hosni Mubarak's regime?
Also tonight reports from Libya say that gangs of militants also attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi with rocket-propelled grenades, and stormed the embassy. The United States ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were KILLED! They also protested a Movie film they denounced as blasphemous. They attacked our embassy, shredded our flag, and replaced it with the al Qaeda flag.

All this over a Movie! Is that why Obama helped to KILL Moammar Gadhafi? Is that why Obama wanted to replace the Libyan Government with the Muslim Brotherhood?

Thank You to Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton, for what you have accomplished!
And you want 4 more years? Are we crazy, or what?

TDDW: It is unthinkable why Obama' "foreign policy" proceeds the way it does.

He claims Romney hasn't enough foreign policy experience, yet he, himself had none, "0," zilch when he took office. The outcome has proven the consequences.

Good thing I'm not president. I would order the military to blow Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran off the map.

I am also considering a blog dissing "the Prophet Mo," and then daring them to come get me.

You might find Obama getting you instead!

Joe said...

DB Could be! Come on! I'm 70 years old and expendable (so I've been told).

Sounds like a great film to me. As a free American I would pay money to own a copy. myself.

I don’t fear Islam, I detest Islam said...

What have Muslims ever done or ever accomplished that benefited America.
American citizens and soldiers worldwide have been slain one by one or in groups, for decades. This was done in the name of Allah… and most Muslims were silent… except for those who celebrated.
How many embassies, ships, buses, planes, schools and businesses have been bombed in the name of Allah in the last fifty years? … And most Muslims were silent… except for those who celebrated.
The twin towers fell and thousands died… and most Muslims remained silent. Sure, a few spoke out, claiming that Islam does not condone such things… but they were drowned out by the cheers, parades and celebrations that erupted throughout the Muslim world.

Joe - "I am also considering a blog dissing "the Prophet Mo," and then daring them to come get me."

Let me put your money where your mouth is.

Here is a link to the alleged "movie trailer" that sparked the controversy.

This isn't an insult to Islam. It's an insult to film making.

Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Martin Scorcese, Joss Whedon and Jon Favreau should be the offended parties leading the protest against this piece of crap.

Joe - How has my life changed since 9/11?

Every email and phone call I make is collected, stored and scanned by the NSA.

Every street corner has a "security camera" monitoring everything that everyone does and everywhere they go.

Those same street corner cameras are being linked to a new FBI facial recognition system that will keep track of your every move.

The sky will soon be filled with unmanned surveillance drones that will triangulate with the street corner cams and add cellphone GPS tracking.

The government will be able to easily identify who you are, where you are, what you are saying, what you are texting, what you are blogging, what music you are listening to, what videos you are watching and who you are hanging out with.

This is NOT the fault of "big government liberals".

It's the fault of reactionary Republican conservatives who DEMAND that the government strip us of our freedoms in return for a promise to keep us safe from the terrorist boogeyman.

After all, if you aren't a terrorist, why should you care if the government monitors every single thing you do?

Only guilty people who are up to no good need privacy and anonymity.

That is how my life and the world has changed since 9/11.

The terrorists didn't defeat us. We handed our country over to them on a Silver Platter because we were too cowardly to value our freedom over our safety.

In Junior High we had a derogatory word for people like that.

XO "After all, if you aren't a terrorist, why should you care if the government monitors every single thing you do?"

EXACTLY the same argument made by the Nazis in pre-war Germany.

How surprising!

You clearly know nothing about world history.

The Roman Empire fell somewhere around 476 AD, plunging the formerly civilized world into the barbaric Dark Ages that lasted for a couple of centuries.

This left a chaotic power vacuum that was filled by the rise of Islam beginning in 613 AD.

The Muslims conquered the entire known world. By 750 AD they ruled more of the planet than the Greek and Roman empires combined.

But they didn't destroy. They rediscovered.

They unearthed and translated the science and literature of previous civilizations that had been lost and re-seeded the world with the knowledge and wisdom of the ancients thereby paving the way for the Renaissance and the Enlightenment.

If not for the expansion of Islam in the 6th and 7th centuries and their rediscovery and spread of ancient wisdom, the Dark Ages might have continued for a thousand years.

Our modern mathematics has it's roots in Islam.

Our astronomy, our space program, our GPS navigation all have their roots in Islam.

Read a book.

That wasn't an argument made by Democrats. That was YOU and the REPUBLICANS who made that argument.

Outstanding. Must be the Christian in you, Joe.

And other than killing hundreds of million innocent people what would you have accomplished?

Ducky's here said...

Joe your irony impairment is showing.

If you take up XO's suggestion may I suggest Hodgson's The Venture of Islam .

It's a little more complicated than you imagine.

Joe, these are old.

It's okay to delete them.
