Well, if national security is a concern, you should be VERY concerned about who is advising Mit on these matters. Because they sem to be recylced neo-Cons from the Bush era. And we already saw THAT movie.<quoted text>True, I wasn't. But idiocy when it's comes to protecting our military, diplomats, and other citizens working in other countries riles me up.
The polls show steady for Obama at 47%...hmmm. Maybe Mitt was on to something.

Of Romney's forty identified foreign policy advisers, more than 70 percent worked for Bush.
Many hail from the neoconservative wing of the party, were enthusiastic backers of the Iraq War and are proponents of a US or Israeli attack on Iran.
Christopher Preble, a foreign policy expert at the Cato Institute, says, "Romney's likely to be in the mold of George W. Bush when it comes to foreign policy if he were elected." On some key issues, like Iran, Romney and his team are to the right of Bush. Romney's embrace of the neoconservative cause -- even if done cynically to woo the right -- could turn into a policy nightmare if he becomes president.

Mitt Romney, a man of the people!
Wall Street’s Fund-Raising Push for Romney
The Wall Street supporters of Republican candidate Mitt Romney are making a last fund-raising push as the election heads into its final three weeks.
DealBook has obtained an invitation for a cocktail and photo reception at the Hilton New York on Monday afternoon with Representative Paul D. Ryan, the vice presidential candidate. The price of entry is $1,000 per person and $5,000 for a photo, presumably with Mr. Ryan.
On Monday morning, one prominent hedge fund manager serving as an event co-chair e-mailed a blast solicitation to his contacts. He pointed them toward an article on Politifact about Mr. Romney helping a colleague of his at Bain Capital help locate his teenage daughter. The article, wrote the hedge fund manger, helps “demonstrates the kind of leader Mitt Romney is.”
He went on to write:“If you believe in capitalism over socialism and that our country’s fiscal debt crisis is the most important issue facing us today, I ask that you strongly consider donating to his campaign and asking your friends to do so as well. Don’t hesitate, the time is NOW! Don’t donate for me, do it for your kids, your grandkids and our country.”
The nearly 200 co-chairs include some of the more public supporters of Mr. Romney, including the New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and the hedge fund executives Dan Loeb and Anthony Scaramucci.
But a batch of hedge fund and private equity bigwigs show up on the list, underscoring the broad and deep backing that Mr. Romney is receiving from the upper echelons of Wall Street.
Among the hedge fund notables co-chairing Monday’s reception: David Tepper of Appaloosa Management; John Paulson of Paulson & Company; and John Griffin of Blue Ridge Capital. On the private equity side, there is Josh Harris and Marc Rowan, the co-founders of Apollo Global Management; Blackstone Group executives Michael Chae and Prakash Melwani; Alex Navab from Kohlberg Kravis Roberts; and Barry Volpert of Crestview Partners.
A number of prominent former Wall Street executives show up on the list, including John Mack, the former chief executive of Morgan Stanley, and John Whitehead, who ran Goldman Sachs in the 1970s and 1980s.
The Ryan event is happening alongside a number of Republican fund-raising confabs in New York, including a retreat at the Waldorf Astoria — a hotel owned by Blackstone — for the campaign’s top donors.

Fox: Romney's Tax Plan Doesn't Add Up
Chris Wallace says plan promises "candy" and hides "spinach," and disses supporting studies as partisan
Romney's tax plan and the oft-cited "six studies" that support it have been getting hammered by liberal critics for weeks. But now they're taking a drubbing from an unexpected source: Fox's Chris Wallace.
Wallace tackled Romney advisor Ed Gillespie: "Ryan is saying, we don't want to get hemmed in. Let's leave it to negotiations with congress to get into the details. Here's my question. Why is it all right to tell voters about the candy - " hey, everybody is going to get a 20% tax cut in their tax rates, but let's not tell them about the spinach, which is you're going to lose some deductions?"

Wallace also 'tackled' Obama advisor Axelrod for claiming the Benghazi thing is politicized.
"When the Libya story first broke, Alan Colmes went after Mitt Romney, for "jumping the gun" before anyone even knew about what Colmes cavalierly called "a few deaths in Libya." Shortly thereafter, President Obama referred to the death of four Americans in Benghazi as a "bump in the road" in what is touted as his administration's otherwise successful foreign policy."
“"Wait, wait, wait a minute! David, wait a minute. This is the first U.S. ambassador that has been killed since 1979. Susan Rice came on this show, and five others, and gave the American people a story that turned out not to be true; and you're saying that we shouldn't discuss this! That we should wait for the investigation to be completed? That's what you just said."

Mohammad , the Ideal Prophet By SYED SULAIMAN NADWI (Abridged) Part- 23
Lecture 4. The Perfectness of the Holy Prophet’s Life
My dear friends! The subject of today’s lecture is the Perfectness of a biography.
No life can serve as a model unless it shows Perfectness in all aspects, even if it were based on historically sound and reliable sources. No life can be adjudged perfect and free of all shortcomings unless all its details are available to us.
Looking at the life of the Prophet of Islam (Peace be upon him) from this
perspective, we find that every significant moment of his life from birth to death
was known to the people of his time, and since then has been preserved in the history of the world. There has not been a single span of time from his whole life that remained unknown to his people.
His birth, infancy, childhood, adolescence, manhood; his business deals, his
travels; his marriage; his friends before his Prophethood; his participation in the
fight of the Qureish and the subsequent peace treaty; the title of “Trustworthy”
given to him by his people (prior to his Prophethood); his amicable solution to
the problem of fixing the sacred stone in the holy Ka’bah and thus avoiding a
great bloodshed amongst the Qureish;
His gradual withdrawal from the then corrupt society of Makkah and retreat to the Mount Hera outside the city; his contemplation and the first revelation of the Word of God; the advent of Islam; his call to Allah, his preaching of the Divine message; the opposition of the elite of Makkah; his journey to Taif; the Meraj (his ascendance to the Heavens);
His migration to Madinah; his battles against the non-believers; the Peace Treaty of Hudaybiyah; his letters to various rulers of the World calling them to embrace
Islam; serving Allah, the Creator and Nourisher of the Universe; the Spread of
Islam; the completion and perfection of the Divine Message; his Final Pilgrimage
to Makkah and his death; in short every one of these events is before the whole
world, clear and complete to the smallest detail.
There is not a single aspect of his life hidden from history. Even the false and fabricated stories about him have been preserved and passed down to history by his Muslim biographers so that everybody could see the truth from false hood, the right from the wrong, and then form their own independent opinion.
I would like to read out to you one of the oldest biographies of the holy Prophet
(Peace be upon him). The book deals with the personal features of his personality and is recognized as one of the best and most authentic on the subject. I will only read out the subtitles from a chapter of this book known as Sha-ma-il Al-Tirmizi.
The holy Prophet’s personal appearance
The number of gray hairs
His use of an eye cleansing substance
His daily life
His manner of walking
How he shielded his face with a piece of cloth
His manner of sitting
His bed and pillow
How he leaned back on his pillow
The meat and soup that he ate
His manner of washing for prayers
The prayers he said before and after eating something
The bowl he used
The kinds of fruit he ate
What he drank
How he drank
His use of perfume
His manner of talking
The way he recited poetry
His way of telling stories at bedtime
His manner of sleeping

The way he smiled

His sense of humour
His prayers in the early morning
His performance of optional prayers at home
His recitation of the holy Quran
His weeping and crying
His kind manners
His life style
What he left behind after his death
All of these subtitles are concerned with his personal All of these subtitles are concerned with his personal life and under each one several traditions have been collected to create a very clear, detailed and bright image of his personality.
Not a single minute of the holy Prophet’s life was hidden. At home he was surrounded by his family and children and outside he used to be among his followers and friends.

what is a messianic jew?? I know the american ashakenazi are going to down hill real fast(victims with american values) with the emergence of the foreign sephardic/ashakenazi in foreign organized drug fronts from primate areas--- eating monkey brains(brains are surrounded by bone and don't cook throughly) and infected with std's. Does not look good for the future.

I have yet to see a society where ALL laws are equal for men and women. In EVERY country and in EVERY society there are special laws for women, for children and for aged. They get special privileges which are not available to others. So how can you say ALL Laws are equal for men and women.
To say that women’s role are in house, is no insult. This is what they have been created for. And it is not us who defines roles of men and women. It is our Creator and He knows much better than we can ever know.
What you call as your reasoning is not reasoning at all. If you could prove than men and women are equal physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically and by any standards you can analyze.
You will find that nature have made them complimentary to each other and not directly competing against each other.
This PERFECT EQUALITY Model, is wrong from every angle and that is why there has been no society and there shall never be any society where men and women are EXACTLY equal.
Tell me in which profession there is exact 50-50 % balance between men and women in ANY country of the world?

when someone talks about people committing felonies in a foreign organized drug front -its not anti semtism, the pothead idiots at UCSC think it is, any ways MOSS, In the mid 1990's the american ashakenazi population had the bull by the horn and might have taken control of the planet by leadership and intelligence - in 10 years the foreign sephardic/ashakenazi organized drug fronts slaughtered and poisoned the american ashakenazi population so bad, that in 15 years , we won't see a numbers of ashakenazi in america, I don't see how the american ashakenazi pop. can breed with hiv/hpv/cysts/herpes. If fact the american ashakenazi downfall is probably one of the largest and fastest upcoming and fastest downfall of any leadership group in history. The american ashakenazi held american standards and values high and kept the standard for 60 years/

our one BIG mistake was giving foreign organized drug crime the 4th amendment- we let rain down poison plague and treachery-- it was syphilis around the turn of the century and now its hpv/hiv- another zoonotic or cross zoonotic infection from a tropical climate mixed with narcotics again and mass transportion.

Um.....the United States - where equal rights is actually guaranteed in the law?
#41956 Oct 16, 2012
You have a short memory here,
In previous posts, MULTIPLE posters have noted that differences betwen the genders are expressed in certain secondary sex characteristics (look that up if that is too big a word for you) but in terms of attributes like intellectuality there are NO differences.
IN the US, IF a woman can PERFORM the job, she is entitled to it. Disqualifying discrimination based on gender is illegal. Bottom line.
YOur statement that "this is what woman were created for" is interesting and all of that, but note the statement was created by a man. This is the reason why your religion is incompatible with freedom.

Right. So better to let the men make all the decisions for the women. That's much more fair.
In our society, women have an equal voice in the political process and in making their own decisions. No rhetoric of yours will change that fact.

Men dominate the "prophet" business and get to interpret god's will. Inevitably, god's will tends to favor the men over the women. Funny how that works.
