    Unfortunately, it seems that they do, Whoisjohngalt.

    This is an item from WikiHow. It’s not satire or a joke, it’s serious. It’s titled “How to Respect Muslim Culture and Beliefs”. One wonders how much money they received from Saudi Arabia for that little effort.

    “Amazingly dumb” doesn’t seem to cover it. Suicidally stupid, perhaps…

    I’m an atheist and I’ve always believed that what you do when you think that no-one is watching you is a indication of one’s character…

    So do I, Mapache.

    “I strongly demand that Mr. Kenji Goto not be harmed and be immediately released,” is not a suitable response. The ISIS savages are probably still laughing.

    “President Barack Obama condemned what he called “the brutal murder” of Yukawa, saying he stood by Japan to get Goto released.” That’s not a suitable response. It’s mealy-mouthed drivel from a leader who has demonstrated that he will take no action unless he’s forced to do so.

    What would be a suitable response?

    “The western nations are on their way, and we are going to kill all of you.”

    I had a look at Jim Webb, Soy, and I’m impressed. He doesn’t seem to be much of a democrat, though. If I’d read his position on various things without knowing his affiliation, I would have thought he was a Republican.

    He’s pro-gun, he’s tough on illegal immigration, and he realises that the west is going to have to start shooting Islamists eventually (I’ve just read a few of his op-eds). He eschews political correctness and “diversity”. I like him (not that my liking him makes any difference to anybody).

    Economically, he seems to lean slightly to the left, but not uncomfortably so, and he appears to take a tough but fair view of the banks. He supports entrepreneurship and innovators, and doesn’t shy from criticising his own party.

    He seems to be more of an American than a Democrat to me, and is definitely preferable to Mrs Clinton or “Pocahontas”. As he has a low profile, at this time anyway (unimportantly, I haven’t heard of him before), I would say that he’s a long shot.

    But he’s certainly one to watch…

    I don’t think that the Democrats can win the contest in 2016, Monk, but the GOP can definitely lose it…

    Here are some of the people who I think won’t make it to the White House:

    Hillary Clinton – Benghazi just won’t go away and she was up to her neck in it.
    Jeb Bush – People will be reluctant to elect another of the Bush clan.
    Mitt Romney – He’s spent, and didn’t capture the voter’s hearts when he wasn’t.
    Rand Paul – He confuses the electorate about his own position.
    Scott Walker – He doesn’t seem to be known well outside his state – but I like him.

    On the other hand, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz will have some appeal to the increasingly important Hispanic vote. Let’s be honest; that worked for Obama with the black vote. Ted Cruz is constantly belittled by the left which might indicate fear of his potential.

    But frankly, I don’t know much about Mr Rubio. And perhaps that says something in itself (not that I know much, anyway).

    There’s not quite two years to go, and that’s a long, long time…

    I’m not an economist either. It seems to me though, that lower energy costs would ultimately be of considerable benefit to the economy.

    In the short term, there would obviously be some pain, such as what’s happened to Darmok’s brother, but as the economy rebalances it must be a good thing. I’ve also heard that low energy prices are bad for the world economy, but I haven’t heard a simple and convincing explanation. That said; I acknowledge again that I’m no expert.

    But, as a bonus, anything that restricts the river of cash going to the Islamists can’t be all that bad…

    Love it!

    I hear voices in my head telling me what to do. But I ignore them and keep killing anyway…

    Thanks for posting that link, Hersh. It’s one thing to read the words, and quite another to listen to the shaking passion in the speaker’s voice.

    People need to realise that these young useful idiots are being indoctrinated in your education institutions and recruited there and in your prisons. This has been a tactic of Islam from the beginning.

    This will only get worse, and it won’t end until they are resolutely confronted eyeball to eyeball. The people who benefit from this wicked ideology, perpetuate it.

    And they absolutely Will. Not. Stop.

    I’m very sorry to hear about your brother, Darmok. Does he have a family? I hope he makes it through OK.

    I sure we’d all like you to send him our best wishes.

    Here’s more, Suarkattack.

    Walid Shoebat’s son Theodore contacted 13 bakeries owned by gay people and asked them to bake a cake with “Gay Marriage is Wrong” written on top.

    All thirteen bakeries declined to do so…

    By the way, is your moniker supposed to be Sharkattack?

    If you really think that, Cosmo, then you haven’t been paying attention…

    We’re having a lovely summer, Defcon, come on over! :)

    Lol! 10 points, East!

    Not a chance, Smokey. The GOP will wrap Benghazi around her neck and choke her with it.

    Thanks for asking the question, Tricky. I didn’t know either, and now we all do.

    Yes, I saw that Monk, but here is a report from WND regarding Libya – mainly the Benghazi affair.

    As you know, I’ve been trying to piece things together ever since the attack in Benghazi, and the details are finally emerging. I’m pleased to note that I was mainly right.

    As things become clearer, the main things to emerge are that the Obama administration is donkey deep in the entire illegal affair, and has (gasp) been lying to the American people.

    We Blazers have worked out many of these details for ourselves over time, but here it is in one report with a lot of the blanks filled in…

    I must say, though, if I were to own a pistol it would be a .357 magnum. That’s a terrific gun!

    I don’t wish to upset anyone but I think the Glock 9mm is a piece of plastic junk…

    Unless there’s nothing else, I suppose…

    You’re thinking of Australia, I think.

    In New Zealand we’ve always been able to acquire long guns without any problem. Pistols are a different matter. While it’s supposedly legal to own pistols, the conditions are quite onerous so generally we can’t have them unless one belongs to a pistol club, or can demonstrate a need for one.

    We have to have a gun licence which is obtained after completing a short safety course, and I actually think that’s a good thing – although I understand why my American friends disagree. Also, there is no registry. A lot of Kiwis own guns.

    I’ve fired friend’s pistols on ranges here and it’s fun but I don’t feel driven to own one. I take the same view as the Polish did in the Warsaw Uprising during WW2. “The only worth of a pistol is in using it to fight your way to a rifle.”
