    If the tax that Muslims have to pay for being Muslims is higher than the tax that non-Muslims have to pay for being non-Muslims, then no, it is not oppression in practice.

    I'm not at all sure about that…

    The "Sons of Liberty" were certainly no match for the British Empire and the Viet Cong had no chance against the USA.

    That said, though, this threat might become a plank of the GOP Party Platform. Cutting off his head might be a too dramatic statement for the GOP. Maybe another body part(s) and then just figuratively.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Ah I see. I guess Islamic societies are actually quite tolerant and free, aren't they?

    Free healthcare for all-meaning everyone has to buy health insurance under a unilateral mandate.

    Low scores in govt run schools? Just lower standards!

    Too many poor? Eat the rich!

    Essentially, freedom isn't fair so give yours to the left, and they will look after you, in all their beneficence.


    Have a look at Mussolini's Fascism and how Hitler borrowed from that. State mandated monopolies and mandated buying. Same again with "affordable" health care....force people to buy a for-profit service where there are no limits on the profit.

    Sorry, but I would take socialism over that.

    I really don't think they've even tried.

    I suspect all that oil wealth has a lot of people cowed

    That's really good.....Super Bowl Sunday all for you.
    Unfortunately, he is wrong.
    Today is my birthday, in addition to being SB Sunday.
    Therefore, today is actually MY day.
    Pretty cool that they're playing the Super Bowl in my honor.
    I will allow you to enjoy my day......you don't get any cake, though.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Jizya disappeared in the 19th century, and Zekat is a voluntary tax at best today, so when you have ISIS going into villages today imposing Jizya as a kind of blackmail against death, you think that is ok?
