    Agree. The way the left tolerates bullshit when the people doing it are brown is insane. They have such low expectations for non whites.

    I doubt if little Tick Tock Ahmed is the moving force in the family. His father seems like some kind of secretive character. He supposedly attended mosques in the DFW area but nobody there could remember him. And how can an American citizen run for president of Sudan.

    And why would he leave a thriving electronics business to move. He must have a good deal of money and could afford to have his future jihadist educated at top notch private schools in America or Europe or even South America. Any of those places would be preferable to Qatar. Pretty sure Qatar is not even on red's short list of desirable places to live.

    OK, you have started to travel, we are all impressed. Your perceptions are still more iconoclastic than realistic. So be it.

    How do you expect to be taken seriously with ridiculous characterizations like this? Ahmed raised no "hell", he went along quietly. He engaged in no "tour", and hoaxed no bombs or he would be in jail. The only uppity one is you.

    Your xenophobia is not my problem.

    Good deal of money doesn't even touch what the emir promised.

    The hell raising is the media tour, going on every talk show possible, not the actual hoax bomb. He was on every local radio show, on Comedy Central, on good morning America, drumming up support for himself and his media hungry father. He didn't go along quietly, as you say, he has been as vocal as possible.

    My xenophobia? They jail homosexuals! They are a human rights nightmare!

    I am xenophobic because I opposes stoning people to death?

    Wow, the lengths the left will go the characterize their opponents as racist as xenophobic, even denying that a country has human rights issues,becajse they are brown and the left can never be accused of racism. I am xenophobic because I call out horrible human rights issues.

    Speaking of xenophobia, have you read our Bernie sanders thread about how red favors labor practices that discriminate against foreign labor?

    I see. Talking calmly about his experience is "Hell raising"? Your inflammatory language does not change the facts. No one is fooled.

    You have long been xenophobic and loudly. You hate and fear muslims everywhere, you hate religious people, you hate non-whites, you hate all people that are not like you. I can cite hundred of posts of yours. Qatar is a muslim country and they have Sharia laws on the books, but there is no record that anyone has ever been stoned there. Not one. http://www.trust.org/item/20130927165059-w9g0i

    You can pucker up and kiss China's ass if you wish. Why should proud Americans give a rats ass about Chinese unemployment? I care about American unemployment. Why don't you?

    You act like islamophobia is a bad thing. And martin is pulling your chain. He doesn't care any more about Chinese unemployment than you or I.

    All phobias are bad things. They cloud your logic.

    No shit . . . it ain't my first rodeo, cowboy.

    Phobia is the wrong way to put it. I am not scared of these things. If I were scared of Muslims I would not currently be in Germany on the way to Lebanon, or have so many Muslim friends back home, or live in the planets most diverse neighborhood. Christianity and Islam are both irrational, and in that sense they are scary, but I don't actually fear religious people. That's just what's liberals say to make themselves look good. And red doesn't think I am scared of Muslims or foreigners, he is just repeating left wing nonsense.

    Also it is worth noting that it would be more accurate to accuse me of islamaphobia than general xenophobia, because while I have been a vocal critic of Islam I have always been a strong support of foreigners in general and I have already favored very generous Immigration policies. More Mexicans please, love those guys.

    Regarding Chinese employment, this is a global Economy. Jobs abroad are good for everyone. When China does good they buy our stuff and vice Versa. We want them to be as rich as possible. We want everyone to as rich as possible.

    yeah you are. Phobias do not connote cowardly fear, they are irrational fears and yes, you have them. They make you hide from logic.

    Don't be a fool. I'm not a feel-good liberal and you know it. The kumbaya's are insufficiently pragmatic for a moderate populist to take seriously. Nor do I repeat anyone's nonsense. I have always been quite capable of speaking my own mind and you should be aware of that by now. If you are going to talk the merde you talk, you must get used to the sobriquets.

    Indeed. Already done.

    Not if it makes us poorer. Your odd notion reeks of socialism. All nations must look out for their own as its top priority. As the Superpower, we do it better than most. America first, Karl.
