Translated: Minnesota’s Keith Hakim Ellison (D – Islam) wants to tax Americans more to transplant more mostly Muslim “refugees” to towns and cities already broke and without jobs. Forever transforming them, burdening the education, law enforcement and health services systems, among many other things. via Ellison Introduces “Strengthening Refugee Resettlement Act”.

“America’s refugee program should reflect our values of generosity and inclusion for all Americans—new and old. The ‘Strengthening Refugee Resettlement Act’ achieves this by making sure refugee families have the resources they need to be self-sufficient as quickly as possible. Strengthening support not only helps the 34,000 refugees who have come to Minnesota since 2000, but improves America’s image abroad.”

Yes, just what we need, more disgruntled nutjobs here in the states telling us we need to bend to their will. With all due respect, i'd rather fund Big Bird.

I noticed that as they killed our ambassador and hold anti-American rallies all over the Middle Eaast. I wonder what they'd do if they hated us?

I'm with Mike. Let them stay over there and kill each other.

I always find it ironic that some people groups come here to escape their hell whole of a home country and then want to turn around and try and convert the USA into the hell whole they just escaped.

I see a certain justice in treating people according to the standards they set forth.

Islamists think it's okay and in accordance with their religion to murder a person for following a religion you don't approve of - even children too young to really have a religion, if their parents follow a non-approved religion. I don't approve of a religion that supports this notion, so by this standard it would be okay to murder Islamists and their children.

(But not *sane* Muslims.)

And before they demand that communications which demean and insult religions be banned, they should look at what the Koran has to say about various other religions. Do they REALLY want to have their own holy book banned?

And Iman preaching terrorism from a Mosque pulpit would be instantly sent back to wherever the hell they came from. Anyone involved in planning terrorism within the United States would be given an automatic 10 year sentence and at the end of 10 years automatically sent back to wherever the hell they came from.

Anyone caught actually participating in a terrorist strike within the United States would be taken out back of the courthouse and humanely euthanized with a bullet in the medulla oblongata.

I do think that the next time we're involved in a war in a Muslim country we ought to announce "We respect mosques, but ammunition storage facilities and firing points get blown up even if they happen to also be mosques - and if you stand in the mosque calling for death, expect death to answer you where you stand."

That will never happen. Too many skeletons in my closet. The Mustard colored couch incident when I was fifteen years old alone would probably be enough to keep me out of the Oval office. The first time I ever had sex, 19 years old, was when I was seduced by a chubby 41 year old married woman. And yes I smoked pot some in college and yes I inhaled. How about my crazy mixed up Taoist/Spiritualist, NDE, death bed vision, holographic universe beliefs?

Can you imagine how all this would play out in the media?

I'm not so much for legalized abortion as I see it as being a necessary evil. There are hundreds of thousands of aborted rug-rats. What the heck are we going to do with all those kids. I don't want them and I sure as heck don't want to pay to take care of them. Heck, no one wants the half-grown crumb snatchers that flood our foster care system now.

Oh yeah, they want cute little perfect babies but once they get teeth and talk back and wreck your car no one wants them. Just like half grown 6 month old dogs, no one wants them.

That's why I apposed the Iraq war. As much as I hated Saddam and his family, he did a fair amount of killing militant Islamic nutjobs and now in his absense, Iran is more powerful than ever.

If you run as a democrat, it won't be a problem at all Art. Obama is a Chicago, America hating radical who had dangerous mentors the likes of Jeremiah Wright etc.... Despite being the worse President ever, and spending us into oblivion, he has a good chance of being reelected. The media adores him.

Contrast to Romney. A quireboy with a spotless past and the media has made him out to be the the "Great Satan".

LOL. It's funny you mention kid wrecking cars. About 15 minutes ago I was talking to a co-worker who mentioned that his 17 year old daughter totaled his Jeep. She got a text message on her cell phone, bent over to check the text and lost control of the Jeep. She luckily was not hurt, but she totaled the Jeep. Cell phones should be kept off when driving if the driver does not have the will power to ignore an incoming call or text.

Mike, who is old enough to have attended public school when students actually learned how to read, write, spell and do arithmetic. The teachers back then were actually dedicated to teaching and did not go on strike. I find that reading a lot helps my spelling.

No got that covered

You can get a signal in, but not emit. That should about cover it. Then the GPS signal for the car could be out of the passenger area and all would be fine with that too. You could recieve texts etc

BTW -- tongue in cheek, I don't care if you are dumb enough to not wear a seat belt either and if you want to smoke as well that is fine too.

Though to be honest I think doing anything where both hands are not available should be clearly ticketable, whether it be eating a bagel, putting on makeup of talking on a cell phone, let alone what came to mind for 2828

I looked it up, your spelling is actually an alternate spelling for choir in one of the dictionaries(sorry I won't look it up again, but it as their)

So man up, never admit a mistake, in particular an obvious one.

How about my crazy mixed up Taoist/Spiritualist, NDE, death bed vision, holographic universe beliefs?

Can you imagine how all this would play out in the media?

-andrew, heard that line again in the Steel Magnolias remake last night... remake wasn't very good, IMHO... they should've left it alone

Mike, who is old enough to have attended public school when students actually learned how to read, write, spell and do arithmetic. The teachers back then were actually dedicated to teaching and did not go on strike. I find that reading a lot helps my spelling.


Bah, humbug. You're only a few years older than me... and I remember the Cleveland teachers going on strike during my senior year of high school (1978). They were out so long that when they finally went back, the kids had to go to school during Christmas and Easter vacations, plus a number of Saturdays, to make up the days missed. And even then the school year ended late. (I got lucky and dodged all this, however, as I ended up in a suburban school district right at the start of my senior year due to a sudden change in family situation.)

What's sad is that sometimes I'll go ahead and proofread my posts. Then for good measure, cut/paste them into a spell checker and still get a few grammatical/spelling errors.

What a loser.

You're lucky your spell checker didn't change "quireboy" to "queerboy". <grin>

At least you didn't spell it "looser."

GEORGE: And then I hear this rabbi on television, I mean imagine.

ELAINE: I'm really sorry George, I, I, I wasn't jealous of you. It was just the whole marriage thing.

GEORGE: Ya know, I was just a little surprised.

JERRY: Why would anyone eat canned fruit? I mean can anybody answer that?

GEORGE: What about all the loser stuff?

ELAINE: I don't know where the rabbi got that. Ya know I never said that. I said "I've never seen you looser".

Hmmm, spelling advice from lowstudent. Though I think his are more fat-finger typing.

Yeah, that and and a too lazy to proofread and you have the English teacher equivalent of a ham and Swiss sandwich to a Kosher Rabbi.

I hate to admit it, but a little lazy and an inattention to detail does make my posting style have some similarities to Obama's presidency. Fortunately I have smaller ears.

I spelled the same word two different ways in the same essay. So? Thom Jefferson did, too.

Thom had an excuse -- no dictionaries.

No got that covered

You can get a signal in, but not emit.


BBBBUUUUUUUUZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!

Wrong answer, but thanks for playing.

So they can say, we need you hurry. But I can't ask any questions about the patient, many of which can be life and death. And I arrive to the OR totally unprepared instead of the staff getting things I'll need for this "oddball" case that had something seriously go wrong with aneshesia last time. So now its taking me 20-30 minutes to get this extra equipment and drugs together. And seconds count.

Tic, tic, tic, tic. Call the morgue for a special delivery.

You can't prove that Jefferson had a copy. And even if he did, he would have stopped using it after the Boston Tea party for patriotic reasons.

Yes I can. It's number 13 in this search on Jefferson's personal library.

I suspect that his misspellings were a result of his use of the English-Dutch dictionary that's number 12 on the list.

I have both a friend and a son who are bicyclists. Both got hit by people talking on a cell phone in the past couple weeks. Luckily neither were injured. DS has decided not to bicycle to work anymore. Friend will keep bicycling, though he's had two incidents with vehicles in the past few years.

I also crashed my bicycle into a car that turned in front of me, though in that case a cell phone wasn't implicated (and I wasn't seriously injured).

My wife had a cousin that died in a bicycle accident a couple of years ago. He was about 49 years old, married with 5 kids. He was really into excersize and staying healthy and he bicycled for health. I think he was hit by a car. They lived just south of Memphis, TN in Mississippi.
