You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

International law has a precise technical meaning, it is the law among nations that arises by treaties and international custom. It is the reason why, for example, international waters begin six miles off the coast.
International law is identical to federal law. States cannot limit the ability of courts to apply international law!
I am completely perplexed as to what it is about this concept that is so difficult to understand.
Tribal Courts do exist, and recognized Native American tribes and bands are considered sovereigns under United States law.
I think this law is a good thing and should be enacted on a federal level. Islam and Islamic law are not compatable with democracy. We should do everything posible to discourage muslims from practicing there oppressive system of law in the United States. Including passing laws that keep shria from creeping into our justice system. Better yet, muslims should not immigrate to the west at all. Better they stay in the hell holes whence they came. And if they were born here they should consider moving to an Islamic country far from freedom and liberty where they can submit totally to thier ****ed up god.

I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
