    To understand the life work of Fidel Castro, you need to look at what Cubans endured under the dictator Batista. Even President Kennedy admitted that there was no country on earth that was in a worse situation than Cuba and the US had a lot to do with that.

    He is a Leader with dignity. I do respect what he stood for. His compassion for the human condition is one that many should strive for. 
    A heart of steel, si se puede..

    We lack inspiring faces like him these days.
    One who fights for freedom, Independence, honor.
    God bless him

    reisiger reacted to baradar_jackson in John Oliver is the past tense of tweet   
    First of all, welcome back bro.
    Secondly: he is completely a shill. The reason why he isn't overtly pimping Hillary is because this way people will think he has some degree of impartiality. Let's face it: in the case of both Stewart and Oliver, many of the more wannabe-left, wannabe-radical variety of liberal-minded folks take their shows more seriously than the standard news shows. (see: Jon Stewart's takedowns of CNN which were thoroughly enjoyable even though I can't stand Stewart). Nobody respects the news media anymore; more and more people get their news from sources which are overtly opinionated.
    The idea behind Oliver's election coverage is to subvert a potentially large pool of third party voters. The whole raisin bit (which bro DU posted) is a perfect example of that. Hillary's entire existence is a raisin but Oliver is brushing it off like it's almost negligible.

    We have this incessant need as humans to bucket each other.  The LBGT community can't even stop generating new labels for themselves when they're whole purpose of the movement was to shatter them and be seen as normal.
    Humankind has over saturated the labels / divisions market and needs to consolidate into one.  
    If human kind can't,  the muslims need to demonstrate that their religion and message allows that capacity to overcome above what the other faiths couldnt.  To the extent we emphasize that we include them as believers equivalent to us (talking Abrahamic faiths)/monotheistic faiths.
     
    Simplify and stop complicating.  I agree with you.
     
    I'd like to add that,  we should all be ready to die and protect each other, not kill, or dismiss. But maybe I live in lala land.

    What's with the labeling fixation with humans in general? Why can't we just be Muslims and leave it at that?
    With respect to (and for) the Zaydis, I would say that in my limited knowledge, their fiqh is Hanafi (not a problem at all), and they do not believe in the infallibility of the Imams of Ahlul Bayt (AS); they also do not follow Imam Baqir (AS) or Imam Sadiq (AS).  Whereas the Isma'ilis do, and they also follow the same Ja'fari school of fiqh (broadly) as Ithna Ashari do.
    At the end of the day, anyone who affirms the Shahada and believes that Muhammad (SAWAS) is the final Prophet and messenger is my brother or sister.  Let Allah (SWT) do the judging on the things in which we differed.
    And I say this with the absolute highest respect and esteem for everyone in this conversation.  I love you all for Allah's sake.

    The only point I would have to add is that like Jon Stewart on the Daily show, John Oliver never claims to be objective or a proper news outlet. Anyone taking him seriously or as a valid news source is not getting the full story at all.  It's like when I used to watch Keith Obermann excoriate the neo-con-artists on Countdown during the Bush years; I thoroughly enjoyed watching Bill O'Reilly get the trifecta for worst person in the world, but I never took it as anything more than entertainment.
     I don't think he's a Clinton shill so much as anti Drumpf.  I have to say that the subject of this thread is brilliant and made me almost spit coffee out laughing. 
    Well played, sir!
