    Jokes on us. He’s kicked back sipping fermented goats milk having his feet washed by a bunch of virgins…until they turn the flames back on.

    I wonder if he comes from a line of Greeks who collaborated with the Nazis, during the German occupation. I had an old man in his 80′s tell me about some of the terrible things the Germans did to them, when I was on Mykonos 25 years ago. A lot of Greeks supported the Germans. That would explain where such an anti-jewish attitude came from.

    You’re right Billy Non-Christian, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a bigot. Just because you have a right doesn’t mean you have to exercise it. Sometime consideration of the impact it has on others it just as (or more) important.

    The business owner didn’t learn anything either, now he’s just the same old bigot he was before, but in hiding. I don’t think anyone should force the guy to change, but I definitely think it’s okay to register disagreement by not using his business. Let the local population decide how important this kind of bigotry is to them. Maybe they don’t even care.

    What a stick in the mud! They’re more like fun and funner. These guys would be a riot to hang out with…from a distance.

    Sounds like a little moral determinism to me. What makes the morals of 1790 more valid than those of today (or of 2000 years ago for that matter)? Maybe you’d be happier with all women in hijab.

    Risk on the other hand needs to be weighed because most phones are backed up to the cloud, which means your photos can be hacked from there.

    Let’s get him his virgins as soon as possible.

    Why do we need incentives to keep government workers? Everybody wants to be a government worker. They get far more applications for government jobs than they have open positions. My daughter just graduated with her Masters in English Education from a special scholars program at the best public university in the country, and the only teaching position that she could find was in another state teaching a different subject at a lower grade level. If it’s that hard to find open positions then we certainly don’t need to add more benefits to attract workers.

    Send Pelosi, Wasserman, and Rice over to negotiate with them. Maybe then they’d see what their policies lead to. Where is NOW? Not a peep from them because it would seem anti-Obama. They’re all hypocrites.

    How sad, but I’m really confused. The apostles visited Jesus’s tomb. That should be enough for any Christian, but I guess you didn’t say what religion you are. The body is just an empty vessel after death, but for a lot of people being near the grave helps them to come to grips with the loss, so please visit your daughter and you’ll both be in my prayers.

    I agree, but I still don’t want to encourage a generation of people that just want to be famous on youtube.

    I agree. When I was in Uzbekistan, I watched them deliver 100,000 AKs to Afghanistan with more than 6 million rounds of ammunition. That must have been the first Fast and Furious, because I’m sure a lot of those bullets ended up being fired at U.S. soldiers.

    Brings new meaning to the name “American Legion”. Seriously though, I think Bill should have spent some time in the military. We already have a highly trained mercenary army – I retired from it. One of the reasons I joined the U.S. army was patriotism, but I also did it for a paycheck. I was paid to fight. What other definition is there for a mercenary? What makes Bill’s idea of a mercenary any different than what soldiers around the world are already doing.

    The real questions should be about cost and control. How about establishing a Special Operations Division and Air Wing completely under NATO control? That small of a force couldn’t threaten any NATO members, but it would provide a substantial quick-reaction force to do things like free the girls from Boka Haram and stop the advance of ISIS, giving NATO members an opportunity to gen-up their countries support, if necessary, for larger actions. The best thing is the cost would be born by all NATO members. No nation building; quick, surgical deployment; execute the mission and their gone! Only downside I see is Russia and China will not be happy.

    Not even news! Just look at her neighbor in Ward 8, the crack smoking felon and ex-Mayor who has been re-elected over and over again. D.C. is the best reason to let sea-levels rise. It used to be a swamp, but now it’s a sewer.

    He’s a jerk who was just out looking for trouble. Notice he had the camera pointed toward himself from the beginning. That tells me that he planned on entering the checkpoint so he could confront them. Another young idiot trying to get youtube hits.

    Nobody even remembers right now how this mess started. Just like in WWI with the assassination of the arch-duke, it began with one man. In Tunisia, a single father was selling vegetables to feed his children and the police came along and beat him and took all of his produce. The next day, he set himself on fire in a public protest, and the Tunisian people took to the streets rioting until the President fled. The people in Egypt saw the news of it and started protesting. Then the Libyan people did the same thing, and it escalated from there. When we forget how these things start, we leave ourselves open to making the same mistakes. When the government abuses the people, at some point they say enough. Of course now the nature of things has changed because of the islamists, but it all started with that one messed up guy in Tunisia. He should either get a statue or be burned in effigy, depending upon where you are standing, but it can all be traced back to him. Look it up.

    Don’t trees absorb Carbon Dioxide? What a bunch of confused scientists. I guess nobody told them which way to slant their studies on this one, so they’re making it up as they go along.
