I suspect veils and burkas are not imposed by modesty needs, but rather by a need in certain societies ridden with men who harass women, to stay out of their sight. In some of these societies, this problem may occur due to polygamy causing a shortage or absence of unmarried women, while in others it may be due to poor standards of manliness, passed down by generations of polygamist history or? Either of these scenarios could seem to mean that the men do not respect women's opinions, but I believe the root of the problem lies with polygamy and other forms of accepted of but odd marriages. It's late, so I'll stop there.

Islam Gets Special Treatment

Islam is a religion of double standards. It applies them and it demands them and would not exist without all of them. We should be censoring what the press publishes in Islamic countries, and make recordings of all their Reverent Wrights and their sermons, or whatever their teachers' harangues are called. And whenever we see or hear something that offends us, we should be making protests. Not them. Us. I am sure there is plenty of offensive language against people who are not Muslims, plenty of offensive cartoons, plenty of vicious talk. The only reason we are not aware of it is because we couldn't care less about what a bunch of flea bitten desert rags say to one another out in the middle of nowhere. But actually we should. There is clearly smoke out there among them, and where there is smoke, there is fire. And where there is fire, it should be extinguished, with protests, sanctions, media pressure, any means necessary. Or this nonsense will only get worse. As far as publishing the French perverts' cartoons in the NY Times, I think they fall below American standards for publication. Here in the USA we don't have a MAD magazine for adults, and if there are people in France who get their kicks out of those kinds of cheap cartoons, well, let them stay there. What can come here is the idea that this terror is starting with those it knows the rest of us would be least likely to protect, because it plans to eventually come at all of us. So it must be stopped wherever it breaks our laws. Something else is that whatever the story is about these attacks, it is bigger than what the media is able to report. Even if it were not bias. The French police inspector who wrote up the police report for these attacks "committed suicide". "Helric Fredou, Number Two Police Officer of the Regional Service of France’s Judicial Police (JP), Limoges, (Haute-Vienne), “committed suicide on the night of Wednesday to Thursday at the police station.” When so much may depend on good police work, the commissioner just kills himself? And apparently at the police station, before he finished his report on the crime? So who did this? A suicide seems so improbable, and it may have clearly led to a loss of evidence and knowledge that might be needed for this case. Was the motive to protect other incompetent cops, his own incompetence, was it a hostile Muslim cop, or did he just know too much for some outside authority to feel safe.

If Katie Kieffer has enough good insight to see these comic pervs as the harmless and well-meaning idealists that she presents them as, then where is the insight to know that most people don't and they would need a good argument to be convinced otherwise. I'd like to believe that, but even with the actual brick and mortar building these comic pervs worked in, I find it hard to believe they were either professional or well-meaning, and easy to believe they were pervs out of control who the rags put to rest before a civilized court could have shut them down. So, yes, I believe they were a wrong minded group, but I also believe they were entitled to state their own positions and actions, and if they made too many errors, the lcal police or civil courts could have resolved the number..

The Unsustainability of Federal Spending

Regarding Obamacare, there was never a need for it in the first place. The poor already had Medicaid, the elderly 55 and over already had Medicare, and most everyone else had insurance if they wanted it, saved their dollars if they did not want it. And those few who wanted it but could not obtain it would eventually qualify for Medicaid if their ailments really did affect their lives, and could go to the ER while they waited, and NO ONE was left out. Could it have been these same no ones who have been lobbying for this Obamacare? Or was it private health insurers? Who else but maybe nihilistic Commies? Now everyone must buy their own insurance, and private insurance companies will make a killing and provide as little health care as possible, like typical HMOs. The government will enrich the insurers, the insurers will coerce the government to maximize the premiums people pay, especially the middle class, the insurers will minimize the benefits they provide, and use every means needed to destroy the quality of modern medicine by putting profit before everything, while at the same time monopolizing health care and driving out competition.

URGENT: It's Not Islam

I wonder what is "great" about the Islamic faith, besides the number of people enslaved or oppressed by it and the number of it's double standards.
One can find these examples 24/7/365 with radical liberal commentators, whom, I would expect to be very akin in world view to the French newspaper staff members who were just gunned down in Paris the day before yesterday, but this particular set of examples shows that if people kill one or more of their own, they'll enable their own killers, and abandon the idea they should protect their own. And they will think, as always, that in doing so, they are being SO good.
This administration has got to go, or at least be reined in. January 3 came and went....This was the date that those persons who won during the 2014 elections officially began to serve their terms in Congress. So as of the 3rd, the Republicans now have control in both the House and the Senate, and it is time to make things happen. I am hoping that one of the first actions taken is that Senator Boehner files the lawsuit he and his staff have prepared against Obama, and that the lawsuit succeeds, and further progress in the right direction is built upon this success.
