  1. ^ Hello, Usually your political commentary is quite insightful and your post on "news of the day" is well researched and informative. But, you sure handled this topic with kid gloves. All the Best, David
  2. Hello, Keep this in mind when the "Iranians" of Kurdistan, Kermansha and West Azerbajani provinces vote to succeed from Iran. All the Best, David
  3. ^ Hello, "Eastern Cuba?" LOL, do you realize the Guantanamo Bay base is about 4 miles by 4 miles square? And, a lease aggreement to Guantanamo Bay was granted after the United States helped Cuba gain it's independence from Spain. There was no "takeover." All the Best, David
  4. ^ Hello, No, it doesn't work that way. The District Judge could have cited the above but he didn't. Maybe the Court of Appeals did. I do not know If Trump wanted, he could request an Emergency ruling by the Supreme Court. And, from what I have read, most believe he would win. Section 1182 defines a needed power for the Executive branch. Lets say Country X is experiencing an outbreak of a new and incurable virus. And, the majority of Country X citizens may be infected. It would be illogical to restrict the Executive branch with Section 1152. Section 1182 gives the Executive branch a needed option. And, the Supreme Court, based on this, would rule in favor of Trump. All the Best, David
  5. Hello, So, if am afraid of getting "dragged off" I am free to assault another person? To "legally" attack another person you must believe that person is going to cause harm to you or another person. And, it must be reasonable for you to have that belief. If you go before a jury and say you pepper sprayed, slapped, hit, shot, stabbed another person because he looked creepy and was following me, guess what, your are going to jail. And, NO! Trayvon Martin did not have the right to assault Zimmerman. Of course, you probably do not know because most of the media will not tell you, but Trayvon approached Zimmerman from behind and initiated the confrontation. Does that sound like the actions of a person that feared "getting dragged off and raped (too) or robbed and killed by stalkers?" Stick to your idealistic Christian theology post and stop trying to justify the poor decisions made by a thug. All the Best, David PS: I bet you don't even know why Trayvon bought Skittles and an Arizona Watermelon Fruit Cocktail.
  6. Hello, You really tell an inaccurate story! I do not think Zimmerman is a saint nor should he be the poster child for concealed carry. But, the facts are these. First, while Zimmerman following Trayvon Martin may have angered Trayvon, it did not give Trayvon the right to assault Zimmerman. Second, Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman when he was shot. This is proven by ballistics. And third, Zimmerman had serious facial wounds after the assault. Trayvon thought he could beat the hell out of someone that had made him angry then go on about his business. He was wrong. And, as the jury of his peers concluded, Zimmerman was within his rights to stop the assault using his firearm. Trayvon Martin was a thug. And in this case, his thugish behavior cost him his life. All the Best, David
  7. Hello, No. And, you might want to speak with a few Crimean Tatars before you make such assumptions. This is what the law says. It has been in place since 1952. "Federal immigration law also includes Section 1182(f), which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate” " (National Review, "Trumps Exclusion of Aliens from Specific Countries Is Legal," 28 January, 2017) All the Best, David
  8. Hello, This is a strange sentiment coming from a Shia Muslim. Don't Shias pride themselves in standing up for the oppressed? Often it seems like Shia let the Iranian government decide which oppressed group will be supported and which will be ignored. All the Best, David
  9. ^ Hello, First, I am not wrong. And second, the current Russian regime needs no help in vilifying itself. Just ask Russia's neighbors. All the Best, David
  10. ^ Hello, The ultra liberal US media, along with it's defeated flag bearers Hillary, Obama and the Hollywood crowd, can not deal with the fact Americans rejected the direction they were taking the country. Therefore, they are trying to delegitimize the Trump Presidency with the "bad Russians interfered and stole the Presidential election from poor Hillary" story. What we are seeing is how vile and hostile liberals behave when they do not get their way. And, how they believe the rule of law does not apply to them when seeking to get their way. All the Best, David
  11. Hello, I heard a report on the radio claiming Kim Jong-nam had become more outspoken regarding North Korean politics and had even criticized Kim Jong-un. If true, such activity is worse for your health than even a high cholesterol diet. All the Best, David
  12. ^^ Hello, No doubt it would certainly make news. I think there would be a very small group that would try to put a "Muslims are violent" spin on such a situation. However, I think the vast majority of Americans would recognize it as that persons inherent right to protect himself and his family. I have heard many foreigners talk about how crazy Americans love their guns. It is true. We place a high value on the right to own firearms. And, we place a high value on being able to protect ourselves and our family in situations where law enforcement is not around. I do not think the overall reaction to such an occurrence would significantly differ based on the person's religion. All the Best, David
  13. Hello, lol, I see. I am just yanking your chain.
  14. Hello, The first step toward gaining World domination is learning how to spell properly. All the Best, David
  15. Hello, I am sorry to hear this happened to you. I hope it was just a drunk ignorant fool and not a person trying to harm others based on their religion, which seems likely. I would encourage American Muslims, just as I encourage all other law abiding American citizens, to get a concealed carry weapons permit and know how to use a firearm to protect yourself and your family. You did the right thing, you drove away from the danger. But, what if you car had been disabled? All the Best, David
