    I dunno. I was there in the spring of 200 the banks of the Nile looked like a garbage landfill back then. And Cairo wasn’t much better. Don’t know if I could pick out the difference between now and then photos.

    Muslims have such a great track record of peace, harmony and productive citizens in every country they emigrate to. This must be why we are willing to do this.
    Or, it’s a reason to justify the Prism program. We need the ability to follow every potential terrorist in this country to protect the law abiders. I guess that is too simple to to restrict immigration based on political(Islam) outlook.

    Isn’t it ironic that NCAA is forcing colleges to change their Indian themed nicknames yet decided to relocate from Kansas to INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA! Will they next lobby States to take their names off the front of their jerseys if they have Indian place names?

    Isn’t it ironic that the NCAA is forcing colleges to discontinue the use of Indian names yet they don’t seem to have a problem being located in INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA! They should next go after the States which use Indian words as their place names.

    you state that natural law is a reason for allowing gay marriage:

    “…but it was overturned because it violated the natural right of a human being to marry any other human being he/she wished.

    Laws that violate innate natural rights to be Free need to be destroyed.”

    Is marriage a natural right? I don’t know. I do know that is a “natural right” for the urge to propagate. . A gay couple is incapable of reproducing. A species would become extinct without the urge to reproduce so gay marriage seems counter to a natural rights argument.

    @ JZS. The laws that forced banks to provide high risk loans were mainly done through the incarnations of the Community Reinvestment Act.

    This is a typical AP article. They dishonestly frame the vote over how stupid the Republicans are for wanting to force Americans to buy inefficient light bulbs over efficient CFLs. The vote was about giving consumers a choice. If the market will bear inefficient light bulbs then so be it. The government should not be in the practice of dictating the marketplace.
    There is so much government intrusion into our lives and the market place that I saw this as a possibility that the pendulum was beginning to swing back the other way.

    All plays in football are meant to trick the other team. Why should this be treated differently?
