When obama became pres his reasoning (if such people can be said to 'reason') was that the musloids were really quite nice people who only hated the west because Bush/blair had been so nasty to them; and so by being very lenient with the musloid world, we could appease their wrath. That realy worked well. obama should not be allowed to forget those foolish remarks. He , and all American voters, should be reminded of them at every opportunity. And at the other end of the spectrum, Reagan once said, "No one - BUT NO ONE - kills Americans and lives to boast about it afterwards." The difference is, obama is a politician and Reagan was a statesman. It is Reagan we should be listening to now. The consequences for anyone who kills yanks/brits ought to be TERRIBLE. Utterly, utterly terrible. So terrible that terrorists soil their trousers if they ever think they might inadvertantly injure a westerner.
And America's enemies are not fools. They sense weakness. There will be DECADES of trouble from Iran, various islamic groups, Cuba, N Korea, and countless tin pot dictators in Africa and South America, because of his weak leadership now.

I think Texas would make an excellent country. They'd have to do something about securing their southern border, though.

According to a survey, the majority of scots would vote to remain in the UK if they would be £500 worse off if they left, and they would vote for independance if that would make them £500 better off. I suppose there ought to be a name for that attitude - perhaps 'sovereignty tarts' or 'patriotism prostitutes'. Presumably a Russian oligarch could therefore buy himself a country, if he was willing to spend enough money. But on balance, I think if I was an oligarch, I'd keep my money in the bank. (As long as it wasn't a Scottish bank.)

Crixus, if Scotland leaves the UK, England will be better off, not worse. The Scots are addicted to socialism in a big way. The majority of scots get more in handouts than they pay in tax, and they see nothing wrong with that. Of the 50 Scots MPs, only 1 is conservative - so without scotland pulling us down, the UK would be far more likely to have a conservative government. It would be sad to lose the top third of our country, but it getting rid of the scots themselves would be a massive weight off our backs. They are dragging us down. The ones who want to work are mostly already in England anyway.
Netenyahu sounds quite different from politicians we are used to. The difference is, he is willing to tell the truth! It really is quite refreshing. Compare this reasoned, thoughtful, honest, STATESMANLIKE speech of Netenyahu's , to obama's weasel worded, whining speech on the same topic, reported on Townhall a few days ago. obama ought to be ashamed.
Netenyahu is a STATESMAN. obama is a politian. Sadly in the USA and UK we only have politicians now. We haven't had a statesman since Reagan or Mrs Thatcher.
The 'nude' issue reminds me of history books that say that Columbus discovered America, Magellan discovered the Philippines, Cook discovered Australia, etc etc. Nowadays they prefer a clumsier, weasel worded phraseology, like 'Columbus was the first European to visit....' I used to have an old encyclopaedia which compared India to the other Dominions of the British Empire - Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. It said that India was unique, in that it was the only Dominion which was already inhabited when settled by Europeans. I can just imagine the left's howls of indignation if anyone said that now.
Yes, I wondered how long before someone pretended to get upset over 'nude' colour lingerie meaning ''nude from a caucasian perspective'. The expression 'skintone' is also used sometimes. Medical patches (elastoplast, etc) are also skintone - I have never seen brown patches/bandages for sale.

How sad. It seems as if you in the US are afflicted with the same weak leadership and irresponsible lack of control over immigration as we in the UK. I just hope your voters wake up, before you lose your country, as we virtually have.
She can go and visit ISIS. I'm sure they'd find a use for her.
