Well, your scenario is nothing but irrational bantering.

Reality, on the other hand, is an American Muslim father killed his two teenage daughters for becoming "westernized" and not one peep of condemnation was heard from other American Muslims.

There have been several "honor killings" of wives by their American Muslim husbands here as well with little or no outcry from other American Muslims.

They probably don't want to be killed either.

Mitt.
their parents threatened to take their surfboards, that btw, their parents naturally had to pay for. and since we, or you rather, all know that liberals are low life trash that can't afford to buy their kids surfboards.....
so i'm pretty sure that crowd of white privileged punks are none too worried about getting a job.
'It's ok son/daughter, we don't care if you never work a day in your life. Just go be a surf bum and we'll keep writing you off on our taxes for as long as we can.'
which kind of makes me wonder about abortion obsessed parents and the relation to tax write offs.
Like I said:

Sounds like hodads to me.
Who do you think a hodad would vote for? Definitely not someone who says things like "get a job" and "you're a fraud".

Nothing new other than Obama has wised up to the republicans audacious ideologues. Ever wonder which party has been the greates obstruction to our nations progress?
Lets go to the bottom line. Just which of the two party’s is the party to party with? Lets put them to the numbers. Going back 80 years. That will expose as to who is who a little bit more clearly than hyped up foxy journalist could ever do or dysfunctional opinionated commenter’s that infect this thread with their loose thread ideologies.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there is more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on, this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

white punks rioting!!!
Just when you thought that the surfing crowd was generally a laid back one, a riot broke out in Huntington Beach, Calif., Sunday evening following the close of the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing contest. And there’s video showing the chaos.
It took local law enforcement officials a few hours to put the riot down, according to KTLA-TV.
“The unrest occurred while officers were attempting to disperse crowds following the close of the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing,” the report notes.
Lt. Mitchell O’Brien told KTLA5.com the Huntington Beach Police Department was forced to request backup from other law-enforcement agencies.
“The area was declared an unlawful assembly and police moved in to make arrests,” a Huntington Beach Police Department press release notes.
One witness said the unrest led to property damage, including several overturned portable toilets and damaged police cruisers.
Officers dispersed crowds with pepper spray, the witness said.

Come on, stupid. Snopes is owned by George Soros and has been discredited so many times, only the most ignorant and/or stupid people still reference it.
Got something with some credibility?
You even use rumors & lies to defend your rumors & lies.

"CLAIM: Snopes.com is 'owned by a flaming liberal' with a partisan bias.

First off, it's clear that whoever wrote this piece made it up as they went along. Anyone who has spent even a few minutes browsing Snopes.com knows that the website is owned by two people, not one. They are husband and wife David and Barbara Mikkelson of southern California. This is stated on the website and has been common knowledge for quite some time.

Second, the charge of partisanship is laid without evidence. At no time have the Mikkelsons publicly stated a political preference or affiliation, or expressed support for any particular party or candidate.

Moreover, Barbara Mikkelson is a Canadian citizen, and as such cannot vote in U.S. elections or contribute to political campaigns. In a statement to FactCheck.org , David Mikkelson said his "sole involvement in politics" is voting on election day. In 2000 he registered as a Republican, documents provided to FactCheck.org show, and in 2008 Mikkelson didn't declare a party affiliation at all. Says Mikkelson: "I've never joined a party, worked for a campaign, or donated money to a candidate" (source: FactCheck.org ).

Anyone who claims proof to the contrary needs to come out with it.

A NOTE ON GEORGE SOROS: A later variant of this rumor alleges, without evidence, that Snopes.com is owned and/or financed by liberal philanthropist and hedge fund tycoon George Soros. This is false. The website is entirely self-supporting through advertising sales. "

http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/internet/a/s...

The Snopes website clearly states the ownership of the site - a husband & wife team. The wife is a Canadian & the husband last registered as aRepublican. Now he lists no party on his registration.

They have never supported any candidate on their site.

You are caught again in yet another lie..

Does your employer know how GD stupid you are?

You'd be beheaded or stoned in a Muslim country. Can't picture you as an oppressed submissive wife who is at the mercy of her husband if you made him angry.
Better stay here. It's probably why the majority of peaceful Muslims stay here too.
But you're wrong about our being a "liberal society". Independents and conservatives far outnumber self-proclaimed liberals. Independents just got confused in the last election and too many others believed there was some kind of war going on with everyone. Of course, Romney's Mormonism probably had a lot to do with Obama winning s reelection and too many believing the smears and lies about him.
But, yes, you'd do better here if you were a Muslim. Definitely.
lol! Son, the GOP is confused. And the attempted theft of a party by the t-p only makes it more confusing.

No one wants radicals in charges..... except the right wingers!

That's what Tenzing said.

I tried to remind him time and time again that we rescued Kuwaitis from Saddam's thugs who were raping and pillaging anything that moved there and provided training and arms to help the Afghanis after the Russian invasion to run them off. There was no Russian 9/11 or anything.

But he still thinks we made them real mad for protecting our best interests against Russia's influence in the 50s by maneuvering the Shah into power.

He also keeps forgetting about the strict sanctions during the Clinton administration that killed thousands of Iraqi children through starvation after Saddam invaded Kuwait

But I don't blame Clinton. I blame Saddam.

That's the difference between you and me. You blame Bush instead of the bad guys.

I wouldn't have even had a problem with Clinton had he kept his pants zipped in the Oval Office and hadn't been such a liar. He was smart moving center when Congress became Republican during the last six years of his two terms and going along with them.
lol! Obama has moved towards the middle. That's because the t-p and right wing crazies have pushed the radical bar so far over to the right, you can't tell.
