Make No Mistake, Morristown

USLIMS, DESPITE AWKWARD claims to the contrary, do NOT worship the Judeo-Christian God, Yahweh. That is why Islam bears FEW similarities to Judaism and Christianity, and those few are summarily cloaked into their converse when applied to outsiders by Muslims. And why they burn down synagogues and churches whenever they get the chance... Al-lah's teachings (Islam) run counter to anything taught the Israelites by Yahweh (Judeo-Christianity). Al-lah is an idol (or deity, if you prefer) that originated in the religions of the Babylonian-Sumerian region of Mesopotamia over 4000 years ago and is also known under such names as Baal, Marduk,...

Prayer As A Sign Of Disobedience

romised a calm witness at the Minneapolis-St.Paul area Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) hearing—conducted to further address the increasing of refusal-of-service penalties for cab drivers reports—the city breathes a bit easier: "It was very well attended, especially by the Somali cabbies (must have been 100 of them). Also present were the NAACP, a Teamsters Union representative, Northwest Airlines, the Visitor Bureau, a couple of Imams, a number of blind people with their dogs and a whole lot of media. After about 2 1/2 hours there was a break. A couple of cabbies took the opportunity to pray, and chose an interesting...


Taking Islam Seriously

LUE IN THE FACE already, we have stated this before, but it bears repeating until we all get it. Muslim groups from around the globe keep telling the West that we need to respect them and that the West today is arrogant and over-confident, and just not taking their Islamic threat as seriously as we should. And in the most tragic sense I can muster, I cannot emphasize more that I actually agree with them on this point. When the Russian Revolution broke out in 1917, as much as the West hated Communism, in a sense, we actually respected them....


Consequentiam

ERE'S AN EXTRAORDINARILY USEFUL website for those of us who frequently find ourselves or others trying to convert lead to gold in making an argument. It's called the Fallacy Files, a website featuring a nimble collection of fallacious, or otherwise bad, arguments, that is, examples of reasoning which may commit one or more of the named fallacies under the care of logic, or are bad in some way yet to be classified. The author, Gary N. Curtis, notes that his collection took the form of clippings from newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, photocopies of pages of books, and—in a few rare cases—entire...


Political Thought And My Liberty

E HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN OUR PLEDGE to outline and critique the basic tenets of Radical Centrism as postulated by Ted Halstead and Michael Lind in their book The Future of American Politics: The Radical Center. Unfortunately, it seems the only time I have had a chance to focus on any reading outside a computer screen these busy days is when I have been sitting idle in the waiting room at the Jeep dealership while mechanics fumble around on the barely used vehicle I bought in December, a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade with only 10K miles on it. It's now boasting 14K,...
