    Oh wait... it IS!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    So they say, but there is no proof of that in either state. Neither student was a member of a gang and both had different reason for wearing them. Show me somewhere that wearing such things is gang related. More like an attack on Chrisianity.

I remember the 1960's, when black men and women didn't show up to register to vote, out of fear for their lives. The Civil Rights struggle did not end with the defeat of Jim Crow. It will be a never ending war against hatred, ignorance, and mobs of people who would be more comfortable brandishing pitchforks and burning witches, while at the same time praising a Jesus Christ who is thinking "WTF, I never taught that"!!

    Who says that it is only Muslims who commit terrorism? The dark side of human nature is in all of us, and religion is no delimiter. Hatred knows no religious boundary, and neither does terrorism.

    Article is here.

    Additional note: Today, the FBI officially ruled the fire as arson, basing that decision on lab reports showing that accelerants were used in setting the fire.
    Lemme' guess. It's everyone's fault, but the Muslims?

    If you want to go down the road of paranoia, then anything might be a conspiracy. Most likely it isn't though.

    Politicians call it the "War on Terrorism" so as to not inflame the Muslims, but we all know what it really is - it is a Jihad on the Jihad and not to dismiss the entire religion, but the fact is most terrorists today are Muslims.
    Well, sure. I've never liked the name "War on Terror." Our enemies are very distinct. They are not only the Islamic extremists, but the radical base that provides support and souls. Nobody could argue that most violence around the world isn't coming out of Muslim countries and that international terrorism is very much centered around Islamic identities. But this is where people get fanatically aggressive or fanatically defensive. They wish to show violence out of Christianity as if to apologize for what others are doing. Or they wish to declare all of Islam as evil as if all Germans were Nazis.

    In truth, even Muslims are having trouble coming to terms with what this enemy is. The vast majority of blood spilt by Islamic terror organizations or Arab brute governments has been Muslim. Slaughter campaigns from Sudan to Iraq and into Afghanistan have come from Muslims. Al Queda's 3000 dead on American soil pales in comparison to what they have done to their own. Before the genocides and slaughterings post Cold War, there were Black Septembers and Lebanese Civil Wars on smaller scales all over. Modernists voices are slow to attack the radical bases in their midsts, but quick to criticize western labeling. But don't our enemeis call themselves "Islamic?"

    We all know what the enemy is. A high horse or whatever leads some towards the politically correct. Fear for angering the enemy in their midsts (or perhaps God?) leads others into denial. The other side of the spectrum shows people immersing themselves in hate in order to make it easier to accuse a faceless enemy. It doesn't take much tounderstand this enemy, but too many would rather keep looking through the fog.

    I understand exactly what I wrote. It was schoolyard simple....


    "This does not mean that all are pure and that a handful may seek harm. Of course, that number is absolutely rediculous compared to the non-Muslims across the nation that does harm."
    What this means is that while there have been and will continue to be an extreme few Muslims in America that seek harm (mostly converts and wannabes), the vast majority have nothing to do with it. And when it comes to comparing any violence from Muslims or from non-Muslims in America, it's the non-Muslims that cause far more harm. For an example, we have street gangs destroying neighborhoods, organized crimes based on ethnic backgrounds, and anti-government extremists living in the woods stockpiling weapons. None of this is Muslim.

    That being said, it's only a matter of time before another Islamic terror attack occurs on our soil because even the worse boxer lands a punch eventually. But when it does, people shouldn't think that there's been some grand security failure or that the "American Muslim" is out to get them.

    So...what is it that you feel you need a source on? It's common sense.

    Let me tell you something, in my years of life I have lived in every region in the east. I grew up in Lansing MI., married and settled near Baltimore MD, and now live in Greenville SC. And I have to say, that from observation I saw more racism from white liberals in the north growing up, than I do today from southern white conservatives here in the south.

    As for your examples, the aid was fired, what else do you want?

    And your "Young Turks" phone interview of Steve Cohen really doing nothing more than calling those involved with the Tea Party Klansmen, and racists is just another example of how scared you libs are, and how disingenuous liberal shows like the "Young Turks" are....I'll be glad when demo's are swept from power this November, then we'll here the cryin' again.

    j-mac
    What GUILT BY ASSOCIATION? Do you know what guilt by association is? Here I'll explain, if Tennessee were just some state in the Union with white people and I associated it with racism because it was in the South maybe you'd have a point. But I'm not stating Tennessee is 'guilty' because it's in the South and close to places like Mississippi and Alabama. I'm not stating that the chances of this actually having happened are more likely than not because Tennessee it's next to Georgia I'm stating they are likely because of Tennessees' own history and current issues.

    As far as the Young Turks thing goes: What the hell are you babbling about?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    If I could analyse what you said grammatically I would, nonetheless it seems after reading it over and over that it could be taken both ways, but thank you for the clarification.
