    Did it not? I mean, didn't it begin with Europe finally growing tired of religious wars after all?

    Are you saying that the U.S. should have stayed in Iraq permanently? Also remember this:

    Status of Forces Agreement from October 2008. Obama was elected in November of that year.

    All the United States Forces shall withdraw from all Iraqi territory no later than December 31, 2011.

    These people aren’t “kooks”, “radicals” or “minorities”. These are fundamentalist who are simply doing what their religion requires.

    How many millennia have to pass before we get tired of waiting on this part of the world to grow up?

    So when the bible tells people to stone others, I guess that is the fualt of the religion then right? Remember not all people believe or follow the New Testament.

    I think you just hate Muslims.

    I have no suggestion. Short of carpet bombing the entire region with nukes, there is no solution. We won't, as we shouldn't, and none of this will ever change. This is merely the beginning of a mess we can't fathom.

    And with the global digital world, the complexity of weaponry, our complete lack of border control, and the paralyzing of our nation to act on anything, it is just a matter of time before this thing is brought home to a level that we have never seen here.

    I'm just saying, get ready. Dark times loom ahead.

    Where does it say to stone people in the New Testament? Didn’t Jesus kind of put an end to that?

    Maybe you’re thinking of the Old Testament? But, sorry, that only applied to Old Testament Jews in Old Testament times. Doesn’t apply now.

    Not everyone follows the NEW Testament.

    You'll have to show me where my Neighbor is wanting to kill you.

It is not Corporations. It is those workers who are too lazy and too stupid to do better.

    CEOs have much greater responsibility and affect the profitability of a company far more than a minimum wage worker ever could. Good CEOs are hard to find and costly to obtain. Minimum wage workers are a dime a dozen and easily replaced without anyone but them even noticing.

    The big difference between you and those being beheaded in Iraq for being Christian is that you have had a plethora of opportunity to improve your own life but choose not to take them and they have had no opportunities to improve their lot in life.
    Last offer for my skills, degree and 10 years min of experience was $12hr as a IC?

    Why get your "skills" when it pays LESS THAN MIN wage?

    The rest is just a poster for revolution.
