And as my mom likes to remind people, their oil would still be sitting underground useless if Westerners hadn’t shown them how to extract it.

Yep, they piled up the heads of the villagers they killed, they burned down the Library of Alexandria, they destroyed churches, and turned cathedrals into mosques. They halted trade in the Mediterranean and on the Silk Road, forcing Europeans to seek a western path to the Indies, thus introducing small pox, etc to the New World. They perpetuated the slave trade throughout the Middle East and Africa, with plenty of Christian slaves taken captive in Europe as well as African slaves. They engaged in piracy and extortion. And they are still doing as many of these things as they can get away with, not to mention their added new fun of blowing things up.
Were those the accomplishments you had in mind?

That would make him a dhimmi.

They are not even close.
 February 4, 2016 at 1:24pm
That would be… the fact that he is there at all.
 February 4, 2016 at 1:23pm
Yep, he quoted one of my favorite verses, one that has gotten me through hard times. But I’m so happy that I did not have to hear it from his lying lips. I think I would have thrown up.

Asian technically means “eastern” and they are from the Middle East. It’s a British/European usage, but I agree it is confusing.

The differences are matters of labeling, safety, etc., not property ownership. You are advancing a socialist agenda why?

I’d vote for Trump once, but no matter how effective he is, I can’t see letting him get too comfortable in the Oval Office.
 February 4, 2016 at 1:01pm
Agree. Haven’t we all been saying that we need a conservative with courage? Cruz has proven himself on that front. There is no back-pedaling in that man.

No no no, he was a community organizer, in Chicago! That’s why all the communities in Chicago are so well organized… Right?

Rubio was all over the Jesus angle this last debate. I think that’s why his numbers were so high in Iowa.
February 4, 2016 at 12:57pm
I would have been thrilled with Scott Walker.
 February 4, 2016 at 12:56pm
Well said, and to me that leaves Cruz or Carson, despite their recent little spat.
 February 4, 2016 at 12:53pm
One more reason Santorum was never on my radar.
 February 4, 2016 at 12:53pm
Ben Carson would remain very calm and quiet, but, I think, whack you with a big stick. Then he’d have his eyesight checked to make sure he’s ok to do his next scheduled surgery.

Whereas I am thumbs-downing you just for being gross and having the vocabulary of a moronic teenager.

If they buy the goods, that makes the goods THEIR PROPERTY, until such time as they are sold to another party. That conception of private property is common because it is correct.

I remember riding an elephant as a kid, and have let my kids do the same. It was fun and very controlled. But they were never elephants with pointy tusks. That would have made me think twice.

Yeah, except for muslim parents, at least some of them.
