I think you have to ask yourself which network is promoting the response as a fiasco. Its not going to be CNN or MSNBC.

Lecture 6 The Practical Aspects of His Life and its Practicality Part-36

Introduction:

My dear friends! How should the messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) be followed, and why? For that purpose we have to show you, in today’s talk, the practicability of his life pattern. At this point in history, this chapter is almost entirely empty regarding other messengers of Allah or the founders of other religions. But this very aspect of Prophet Muhammad’s biography is the fullest and the longest chapter of his life.

Actions speaks Louder than the Words:

And this very point should be enough to decide who can rightfully be the leader and Seal of Prophets”. There is no shortage of good instructions, sound advice and sweet words in this world, but what matters most is good deeds. If we go through the available histories of various religious leaders, we will find interesting philosophies, fascinating parables, great pieces of oratory and artistic use of words, which will certainly move us and please us momentarily.

But what is lacking there is the practical application of those words of wisdom and proving their goodness and effectiveness through personal example. The practical aspect of human personality is reflected in its moral and ethical behaviour. Which heavenly book, apart from the holy Quran can now claim and bring evidence to the exalted moral conduct of its Prophet?

But the holy Quran clearly says about the holy Prophet (Peace be upon him).

“And you will definitely have a reward that will never end. And you are surely on an excellent standard of character.” Chpl.68:Vrs.3-4)

The first verse promises an unfailing reward from Almighty Allah, whereas the second verse explains why he deserves such a high reward. So Allah’s own words bear witness to the exalted moral conduct of holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and hence the endless reward. The unlettered Prophet of Makkah was made to proclaim through the Divine Revelation:

“O you who believe, why do you say what you do not do?”(Chp.61:Vrs.2) He alone deserved to say that because he himself practised what he preached. Let us look at the preacher on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem and the preacher on the Mount of Safa in Makkah from this perspective. We will see that Christ’s present biography fails to present any practical examples, any examples of his actual practice, whereas Prophet Muhammad’s life history is full of the records of his noble practice.

Tolerance and forgiveness are commendable virtues. A nonviolent person, who does not harm or kill others, does not rob, or does not accumulate wealth, is no doubt a virtuous person. But these virtues are passive virtues. He did no harm, but did he stand up to save a helpless person? He did not take anyone’s life himself, but did he save anyone from being killed? He did not build a house for himself; but did he shelter the homeless?

This world requires these active and positive virtues. And that indeed is the noble, moral conduct.

I think I was probably more tuned into Katrina than folks in the NEast. I was online at NOLA forum when the people were reporting what was happening before the news or FEMA knew. And I contributed a nice amount to help everybody, knowing full well the racial makeup of the area. This racist labelling of conservatives by the liberal opinion people is disgusting. However, after seeing that the Red Cross wasn't very efficient during Katrina, this time I chose a Chabad synagogue that I trust will use donations effectively.
One codeword that I find very funny is 'Chicago'- after Obama was elected, liberals started whining that we use 'Chicago' as a secret racial code. Maybe that's how liberal minds work, but to me "Chicago" (in the election sense) has always meant corruption, election stealing, and dead voters, and sometimes dead politicians. Even when I considered myself a Democrat.
Chicago = corruption = election cheating = dead voters = the Democratic party of New Mexico

But Mr. Romney’s chances of winning the Electoral College have slipped, and are now only about 8 percent according to the forecast model — down from about 30 percent 10 days ago.

<quoted text>So, your point? The paper backed Obama in 2008. Zuckerman is a Democrat. Perhaps reality has set in, along with a dozen other major newspapers that previously support Obama.
"The presidential imperative of the times is to energize the economy and get deficits under control to empower the working and middle classes to again enjoy the fruits of an ascendant America.
“So the News is compelled to stand with Romney.”
People have a right to change their minds. Right or wrong.

What specicially would Romney do to "energize the economy?"

He's been a little short on specifics.

Any idea how he will offset the $5 trillion in tax cuts?

Why the big secret?

Rudy Guiliani defends Michael Bloomberg for handling of crisis. FEMA response feeble at best. With 5 days advance warning, why didn't FEMA have water supplies stationed nearby, same with gasoline trucks? In other words, FEMA dropped the ball again.
More BS.

Bloomburg and governors were offered whatever they wanted ahead of time.

__________

Seriously. He really did this with a hurricane barreling towards the Northeast that forecasts now indicate will produce 10-20 ft. waves in New York City on top of the higher water we can already expect. President Obama directed FEMA Director Craig Fugate to call Mayor Bloomberg earlier in the day to offer assistance. Governor Cuomo had asked for FEMA aid. Bloomberg said thanks, but no thanks. He said we had what we needed.

Thats funny, none of the Quebecans in my neighborhood have that sticker.
I just found out that in my parents neighborhood one of their neighbors fled the night after the storm, to return to find out someone had burglarized his house.
I also found out that the Quebecans were working the night shift and sleeping it off at the Hyatt Regency. nice. Hope they used the jacuzzi.
Great breakfast buffet!

We've stayed there a few times.

If you combine the weekend special with a AAA discount, it's a good deal. With breakfast included.

Self-parking in the back used to be free - now they even charge for that.

Just got back from donating clothing to the relief effort headed down to Staten Island. From what I can see, there was a pretty hefty response.
That's great.

I also heard they needs lots of trash bags.

It would be a little weird paying to stay there considering I live less than a mile from there but I will check out their breakfast. I have been in that building maybe twice in my life, and pass by it probably at least twice a day.

I'm kind of troubled by the whole coordinated response issue. It is Red Cross that traditionally does this, but the residents were complaining about neglect, so they put out a plea so some of our local synagogues and churches responded.

How about this for a fact. Your fantasy interpretation does not stand up in a court of law. And ultimately, that is what matters, not your hot air.
No, applicability of the law matters, without it the court has no jurisdiction.

Just wait until we get the first accident due to incompetence with a tree chipper
make sure your guy is insured - on my parents block someone got killed a few years ago, and another house down the block had a tree fall on it during removal.
Well if you hire someone that is licensed by government you will pay more, enjoy it.

Once again you enter an area you obviously know nothing about.

There is no correlation between price and Licensing. A CT arborist license is about $120, renewable every three years or so. The gatekeeping into the profession is the certification exam (and Continuing Ed units), not the licensing fees.

The real difference in fees is between the insured and the uninsured businesses, and that IS buyer beware, b/c as a homeowner you are personally liable if your uninsured worker screws up.
