    Then you are very na´ve concerning the middle east as well and the history of US involvement. In my lifetime, the less involved, the less safe we are. When al queda was attempting to goad us into war with a number of terrorist attacks leading up to 9/11/01, we were involved very little in the middle east. When Obama failed to leave a contingent of troops behind in Iraq, ISIS grew and became a threat.

    Lol! We've been manipulating events in the Middle East to suit our interests for a century. Our government was busy overthrowing the Iranian government, long before Obama was born. But you go on blaming Obama as the only one that has advanced policies in that region that have caused so many people to hate us. It's no wonder we have the issues we have with the lack of critical thinkers.

    Religion doesn't need to be hijacked in order to cause tremendous evil. It does that when it's working properly. You have to hijack it in order to do good with it.

    There is no equivalency....It's a false narrative that once again leads some to believe that Obama protects, and runs cover for terrorists.
    Actually he's quite right. The point is that history is full of people who use religion to do evil. Religion isn't the problem; radicals are.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What is never discussed is that at the core of their religious belief is the goal of a worldwide world war, that prophesy says they will win. Muslims are 1/4th of the world population. While there are claims the percentage of Christians is slightly higher, a much larger percentage of Christians are Christian in self identity only and do not practice Christianity. A large percentage of Muslims practice the religion of Islam daily. Muslims generally do NOT share the usual religious tolerance of Christians either.

    There is a VERY (very) small train of thought in radical Christianity that also believes in the same world war, but that belief is very ingrained into a large portion of Muslim population. The goal is not peace nor co-existence. It remains what the religion of Islam began with by Muhammad - a war-religion of invasion, conquest and absolute religious intolerance.

    Are they fought now while small in active numbers and highly fragmented into different factions, regions and countries in an unified manner? Or do we hope they change their views with they have a unified half a billion people with WMDs of all kinds and fully integrated into our countries - while we are fully excluded from theirs?
    What you say is quite true and denied only by Barrack Obama and his lackeys. Certainly Islamic leaders don't hide their ambitions.

    Islamists will have the Middle East oil to finance their operations while BHO puts America trillions deeper in debt, an act he once called "unAmerican", and continues to deny further exploration as well as the Keystone Pipeline. His releasing terrorist leaders does not do America any good either, nor does his plan to close Gitmo. The list goes on.

    I have, and have seen the same phenomenon with self-hating Americans as well, and with the US President apparently being a self-loathing Christian. Or at least he once claimed to be a Christian.

    yes, and people who protest in front of bakeries for not selling cakes to Gays are terrorists as well. I suppose anyone can be a 'terrorist' in the minds of neurotic leftists.

    Is abortion an act of terrorism?

    Words appear to have lost their meaning, or some people are seriously confused.

    Was Barrack Obama correct in saying that Christians initiated Jim Crow laws? Or is he just stupid?

    Wow! That's quite an insight!

    What is it about the banal that seems to attract leftists?
