    Muslims were the chief slave sellers.

    Not exactly correct.
    They still are.

    Here is a question that those who are anti-voter ID have never answered.
    In order to get Food Stamps (SNAP), Section 8 housing and Medicaid, among other government benefits, you need to show an ID. How come these low income people can get these benefits but yet, do not have an ID to vote?

    Well I do see a physical resemblance between the monkey and a certain elected official in Washington.

    Forgot one.
    If your leaders have a “D” after their name, you know you live in a country run by idiots.

    What about the feelings of those that support our military?
    Coudn’t they be offended by the treatment of those who devote themselves to protect us?

    When a server does not perform as well as you expect, the tip should be lessened. I have on rare occasion left an extremely small tip because the service was abysmal. I feel that a small tip would get the message across as opposed to no tip, If no tip is given, it could be considered an oversight.

    That said, I have no idea why this small tip was given.

    A part of the problem is that while the founders did not envision career politicians, we have them now. Back then, the legislators 1) needed time to travel. They couldn’t go from coast to coast in a few hours. and 2) They had their own businesses to take care of and needed time at home to take care of them.

    I don’t doubt the Obama administration would do something like that, but my question is why did Greta wait so long to release the information?

    It is a sad thing when a person like this passes.
    He had a strong feeling for familiy values.
    Unforutnately,what I predict is that Chick-fil-a will shortly go to some conglomerate and will start opening on Sundays and Holidays, exactly what Mr. Cathy opposed.

    Peace Now also said proving again that violent [sic] delivers Israeli concessions while nonviolence results in settlement expansion.”

    So does this mean that Peace Now is promoting violence?

    Simple, but there are other options.
    A dead bolt placed where it couldn’t be reached from the outside would do the same thing.

    “still plans to put it on the new one – that doesn’t exist yet”

    May I suggest a portapotty?

    This statement made by the cleric shows how hypocritical the Muslim religion is.

    ““Oh Allah, the most merciful, count them one by one, and do not spare a single one of them.””

    If Allah was the most merciful, he would spare every single one.

    Holder also. But then we already knew he was a racist.

    The problem is the tax system in our country. The tax system for businesses is actually a tax on profits rather than income.

    The system should be simplified. What I propose is a flat rate on sales, say 7% (rate may need to be adjusted). Therefore every $1 of sales would result in a tax of $.07. No deductions for anything.
    Anything sold or shipped from a US location would be subject to the tax. Sales though US based agents of a foreign company would also be subject to the tax.

    If implemented, whether a company is based in the US or elsewhere the taxes would be the same.

    I’m offended by Muslims trying to tell us their religion is the only true religion and that we must comply with it.

    I am not against or offended by any religion or a person’s right to have their own beliefs. Only if they try to force their beliefs on the rest of us.

    “psychological evaluation?”

    Sounds like something the Soviets did to dissidents in the 50s nad 60s.

    If Obama was watching anything on TV, it was Rocky and Bullwinkle. Obama would be rooting for Boris and Natasha.
