I would like to add to lizamizell's comment on Shariah law regarding economic matters.

Shariah law prohibits making money from money. Charging interest is considered usury, and is therefore not permitted. Wealth is generated only through legitimate trade and investment in assets.

This is rooted in a lot of wisdom. Look at the mess our usurious system has created. ...slavery not being the least of these.

Yes Future4u, the Federal Reserve, THAT is the elephant in the room, AND I think it is a place where the so called "both sides" can find a huge area of common ground.

Glen does talk about the Federal Reserve, but I don't think he goes nearly far enough (from what I've seen/heard so far.)

It is my belief that once we all wrap our heads around what this beast really is and WHO created it and WHY, the bickering will quickly stop because we are all Americans and we have all lost something precious.

The bickering I believe is mostly a result of us all seeing and enumerating the various symptoms of a disease. You can't cure Gangrene with neosporin or a band-aid.

All of these various and sundry issues are neosporin and band-aids.

And, the Federal Reserve is as deadly serious as Gangrene.

…because news_across is an American, and a damned smart, well informed, and patriotic one at that.

Mistaking news_acroos for an enemy would be a little silly; there is a lot of wisdom there.

Glen has advised us to “step out of the box”. I’d say that is excellent advice.

I agree completely Aldonp.

Legislating in the realm of belief is the work of theocracies, and we should avoid it. You can't treat women like walking baby containers; even though one may at any given moment be pregnant, that doesn't mean she should be denied her inalienable rights.

The Puritans believed that life began with the quickening. Much different than the commonly held belief today that life begins at conception.

I believe choosing abortion is an immoral and often flippant choice that is a reflection of a malfunctioning society.

Outlawing abortion is slippery slope into totalitarianism.

Values 100%

Principles 94%

1.) mostly true, but too simplistic and vague

2.) unnecessarily divisive and exclusive, no American should be disqualified from this conversation

Re: the elimination of 9/11 conspirators in the WTC towers. (I haven’t been successful navigating back there…, so I’ll reply here)

I did get that you were joking.

Your post reminded me of the curious case of John O’Neil, former Assistant Director of the FBI and OBL expert, who had just started work as head of security at the World Trade Center on the 10th of September, 2001. He died at the WTC the next day. Sometimes I wonder if the body that 9/11 responder John Schroder saw in a closet in the WTC might have been John O’Neil’s…)

Terrorist!! : )

Right! If we had a legitimate government there would have been a long and heated debate in Congress about the balance of Liberty and security before the passage of the (impossibly long, long since written, so called) P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act. And, if we had a well informed citizenry WE also would have had a lively and heated debate about relinquishing our 4th amendment rights.

Soldiers convicted in the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal
http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2008/01/11/america...

And, I for one don’t think it is accidental (I am so tired of all incompetency theories.) I think these young, poorly trained military personnel were given authority over prisoners with very little direction knowing full well that they would go Lord of the Flies on them. Which begs the question, Why?

Now these kids are damaged goods for the rest of their lives. Would you trust them with your children? Would you want them living down the street?

My intention is simply for us to acknowledge what is so, and begin our conversations in fact rather than myth. Denial does not forward the cause of American Liberty. Let’s be courageously honest about what is so and why, and start the renewal of our Republic from there.

The myths are prisons. Let’s break free.

(I AM quite tenacious but rarely watered down… )

I am sure your husband is an honorable and courageous man who does is job conscientiously and respectfully. It is not my intention to insult him or …anyone else.

While I do have the utmost respect for those who have heard and answered a calling to serve this country in a way in which their very lives are on the line, I also understand that just because someone puts on a uniform doesn’t mean that all their actions in that uniform are automatically honorable or even lawful.

We cannot deny these things have happened.

"What we have learned through the course of all these investigations is that there were people who clearly violated anyone's standard for humane treatment," said the Pentagon's chief spokesman; "most of us were convinced that the detainee was innocent."
