Islam to Pagan

The author wrote:

"Have you thought what family will say at your death?"

"I was hoping all you elders would die before me." My mother's face visibly relaxed. She even cracked a smile. "Ah, that's true. God willing."

Isn't the proper Islamic response to "I was hoping all you elders would die before me." usually, 'Not if you keep this up.'

A very good point. Robin. But what about the aspects of Islam that are really just Arabic culture and social mores that are carried over? I know many of the Pacific Islamics have no where near the level of misogynistic aspects that Middle Eastern Islamics have, just to name one aspect.

If you were to go back to a Pre-Mohammidan Arabic Paganism, to my thinking, they're be no guarantee of any behavioral improvement.

This isn't desecration. That would be going up with a some explosives and making sure nothing could ever be put on the site ever again.

It was civil disobedience. Like the Boston Tea Party or Henry David Thoreau refusing to pay the poll tax or sit-in's during the Civil Rights Era.

When asshat's like Scalia insist on using the Constitution as toilet paper, you've got to take it out of their hands. I don't really see it as being much different that jury nullification, which judges love so much. The old cod liver oil theory. It must be good for them because they hate it so much. ;-)

It's probably better than doing a drive-by and issuing a .30 caliber recall. Though certainly not as satisfying. But that's the price of living in a civilized society.

Only if you're doing it correctly.

You're still my favorite subversive.

"But when Issac does it, apparently, it's okay; when Robin does it, it's a hate crime."

A monument should bring people together, not cause division and contention.

If these idiots insisting to keeping this piece of crap up had remembered that, this whole thing could have been solved simply by replacing it with something that was more in keeping with that ideal.

How many thousands of dollars have been wasted being spent on this that could have been donated to veterans causes?

There are hundreds of artists out there whould be thrilled to receive a commission to create an appropriate monument to replace this piece of crap.

This isn't even the orginal momument. It's been damaged and replaced on at least one previous occaision.

It being out in the middle of the desert is a good thing because no one is likely to catch you when you steal it. ;-)

Unfortunately, in much of rural America, that's unlikely to make much of a difference. It's the same asshats that'll be running and being elected to them. If it's not, it'll be different asshats that have the same ability but are members of the other party.

It took some friends of mine over a year and a half to get a zoning change for their motel, because the idiot in charge would not come and do the inspection. Whenever he was called on it, he claimed he'd come and no one was there.
