Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

no WH tours for the public but the Muslim Brotherhood is ALWAYS welcome.

where's the ACLU?
why no protest the way Jesus isn't banned from malls?

'There's an uproar in the U.K. over recent comments by the Archbishop of Canterbury that, given the country's growing and restive Muslim population, it is "unavoidable" that certain aspects of Islamic law would, at some point, have to be accepted in Britain.

What many Americans do not realize is that there's a concerted effort by some in the American Muslim community to move slowly in a similar direction right here in the United States.

While this effort is not necessarily about Sharia law, it is an attempt by some Muslim Americans to force the rest of us to enable their cultural and religious practices in the public sphere. Instead, they should be assimilating and abiding by general U.S. norms.

One of the front lines of this fight: footbaths.

Growing numbers of Muslims living in the United States are seeking to wash their feet in the sinks of public rest rooms. The foot-washing is part of wudu, the ritual ablutions a Muslim performs before the five prayer sessions he or she observes every day at intervals from morning till night. The ablutions can take several minutes and involve repeated washing or rinsing of the hands, mouth, nostrils, face, arms, forehead, hair, ears and, finally, the feet.

There is nothing wrong with a devout Muslim seeing it as his religious duty to wash his feet. I take no issue with the practice whatsoever.

But I do not accept the notion that large, primarily secular institutions - or society as a whole - should invest time and money building facilities expressly to make it easy for people to perform the ritual.

Yet that is precisely what is happening. Not surprisingly, it is universities - bastions of open-ended tolerance - that are on the leading edge of the trend. Last year, it was reported that the University of Michigan-Dearborn, where more than 10% of students are Muslim, announced it would install $25,000 foot-washing stations in a number of rest rooms.

In contemplating this, the school was following in the footsteps of other institutions including Stanford University, the University of Houston, Boston University, St. Cloud State University and the University of Minnesota at Duluth. Indeed, right here in New York, NYU is considering installing footbaths in the Islamic section of its planned interfaith center.

Somehow, the American Civil Liberties Union - normally given to howls of execration at the mere thought of a creche in any semipublic place at Christmastime - is not challenging any of this. Why? Because, it says, it's not a matter of religion but of "cleanliness and safety." Foot-washing in regular sinks can be a messy business. It can also be off-putting for non-Muslims who must use the sinks and rest rooms for ordinary purposes.

Depends on what needs to be typed. I refuse to transcribe propaganda.

But since you're an independent and independents tend to lean right, I don't have to worry about you feeding off the propaganda that's already out there.

We're actually more on the same page than either of us think since I could easily become a registered indendent after researching their platform.

So why do you always sound so confused?

Yet another right whiner hoping America fails. This would be the result of an Obama failure.

You dickweeds really should think about proving yourselves electable through better governing rather than hoping for this President's failure. Especially after the trouncing you got in 2012.

Until they can operate under their own impetus, they're nothing more than a government subsidized industry that had some operating capitol given to them. It postponed their inevitable demise but did nothing to prevent it. It's precisely the same with the stock market. Once the massive $84 billion per month infusion of capital dries up, the illusion of a robust market will evaporate along with it.

I never said "Always" you lying POS.

You indicated that you did not know a single instance of an Obama compromise.

It shows exactly how GD dumb & misinformed you are.

Anther example, Obama signed the extension of the Bush tax for the wealthy cuts at the end of 2010.

Dod that register as a memory in that empty gourd on your shoulders?

Do we have a public option in the ACA? Was it something Obama wanted in his original plan?

Oh, Homer, why can't we just set aside our few remaining quarrels and just see each other as ordinary, down to earth people? This petty bickering must stop and we need to move on to the important things like moving in together and starting another family. I am SO over getting up at 2am I need some Independence and maybe you can give it to me? It makes me wonder if traditional marriage isn't welfare of some kind... but it also doesn't.

You just made the case I've been trying to make all morning.

Sadly, you belong on the same side of history as those who followed past tyrants who disposed of their versions of riff-raff and who were "drains" on a self-imposing government.

You are a disappointment to the American freedoms so many died for.
