And yet she and Barry are still out making divisive speeches and promoting failed policies. It's like they never left.
But I do get why you don't want anyone bringing it up

This is a normal weather pattern. What has been unusual is that Florida had a break from hurricanes for about 10 years. Look up the 30's and 40's and many other decades and you will see that hurricanes in Florida are a part of life there. So educate yourself and stop with the man-made climate change bs.

Good to see you RGG! But you need to do a quick check in Flags of the World.

The point is that your characterisation of Islam as anti-intellectual is simply inaccurate, and shows that you've absorbed the kind of facile, lumping polemics peddled by the kind of demagogues who favor sweeping generalizatons over careful distinctions.
It is interesting to consider why so many Greek texts were transmitted to us in Arabic. It may largely be a matter of proximity: I watched an interesting lecture a couple months ago that demonstrated that many Classical Greek authors actually lived in what is today coastal Turkey and Syria down to Egypt. To call them Turks would be absurd as there were no Turks in Turkey at that time, but calling them Greeks gives the mistaken impression that the Classical apex was confined to the European side of the Dardanelles, when it wasn't: two of the ancient Wonders were there (three if you count Rhodes) and they invented coinage. If the texts remained local, they were presumably inherited by the Romans/Byzantiines and then later plundered by Muslims during their conquests. The fact remains, however, that Islamic scholars studied and propagated these sources rather than destroying them.
Islam is a grand old faith that has caught a fundamentalist virus. You have only to think back fifty years to find urbane Islamic cultures where thundering preachers were held in check by governments which, though not entirely secular, were pragmatic enough to recognize troublemakers and suppress them. Two hundred years ago, Islamic societies were perceived by Westerners as licentious and immoral compared to their own, though now only the belly-dancer survives to remind us of this era. I've never been able to figure out why so many Muslim men should suddenly develop an appetite for preaching and instead of living their lives peacefully and productively should obsessively share hectoring videos on the internet and submit to regular harangues on The Way Things Ought To Be, but I see this is not confined to Islam. You guys have got a regular madrassa going on here.
I don't expect you to care about any of this, nor does it matter at all when it comes to current immigration policy. We have to deal with Muslims as they are now, and I'm in favor of cooling it until they figure their shit out. But your kind of relentless lumping just comes across as woefully ignorant of history, and your opposition to Muslim immigration is easily caricatured as garden-variety chauvinism. Maybe turn off the radio and read a book.

What did someone say on the previous page - that Trump lied about phone calls with the Boy Scouts and with the President of Mexico? Really?
Guess what guys? I don't care if Trump even had phone calls with them, let alone what was said or whether he lied about it. If he even did.
Not in a world where Bill Clinton's foolish, reckless naivetÃ© with North Korea is coming to fruition, and Berock Obama just gave Iran the green light to develop nuclear weapons - then removed sanctions and gave them cash so they could. With an unconstitutional treaty not even submitted to the Senate for approval, no less.
All this bullshit about nothing - that gets breathlessly posted here every day. Were and are these people too stupid to spot the lies Obama, members of his administration, Hilary Clinton, her associates, the rest of the Democrat Party, and the Fake News Media have been telling all along, in every comment, speech, and report, every day - or do they just not care about that? I'm guessing 'too stupid', because they seem to believe their own bullshit, but 'don't care' is probably equally likely.

WTF!! Someone needs to put a stop to this BS! She's gone from "no job" at the WH, to a "non-official" job, and now she has an "official" job?!? What the hell is going on? This family's egos are out of control. Or something even more nefarious, like daddy is unfit for office and she's the fixer, a de facto president? WTF?!

Here's one: Why are you you, and not somebody else?
(I'm reminded of the old saying: Don't try to be someone you're not - everyone else is already taken. )

Can we be sure Baron is his son? His wife must have been well stoned to have him between her legs.
