Since I was 12. So... seven years? Yeah, I think about seven years.
Freeze to death or drown?
Well when they can overstay their visas, I'd say something is wrong with our monitoring of Middle East visitors. Perhaps they should use those ankle-band tracking devices like they put on parolees.Jump to post
What a stupid piece of legislation to begin with... and it is a hideous claim to suggest that two-thirds of the American public wishes the ban was reinstated. But perhaps you meant to say one-third, and in that case I do agree with you that that same third has a low level of intelligence.Jump to post
I enjoyed the poll results very much, but I doubt that John Kerry does. That seems counterintuitive to you? Well, it really isn't, seeing how a survey taken by the Marshall Fund a few months back found that 58% of Europeans consider "strong U.S. leadership to be undesirable" (unless, of course, stro...Jump to post
I really don't think we'll see a replay of Vietnam here... the U.S. won't interfere in any national elections or selection of a new Iraqi government the way it did in Vietnam in 1954 (i think it was 54). If they want a theocracy, let them have one. I think we can manage to have a pro-American govern...Jump to post

It would seem to me that it would not matter if the hub was A380-ready if the airports FedEx needs to serve from the hub are not A380-ready. Just my thoughts.Jump to post

<b>So can you post the link that gives you all this information?</b> Well I didn't get this information from a web source, but I have found <a href="http://www.meforum.org/article/77/">a source</a> that hopefully you'll find adequate (the Middle East Quarterly). <b>Can we?

Oh, I'm not questioning you on the fact that you are allowed to worship, I'm merely stating that I wouldn't call those countries tolerant. That may sound like an oxymoron, but it really isn't. As you say, you are allowed to worship, yet there is still some persecution in less tolerant nations, I'm s...Jump to post
I wouldn't call Iraq and Iran tolerant countries.... but that is beside the point. I don't care if those countries ban foreign religious influences or not-- they're Islamic Republics! As for Saudi Arabia, they give money to families of homicide bombers, so they're just wack anyway. To each his own.Jump to post
*sigh* I just don't understand why people always get all worked up over the domestic practices of other countries, such as Germany in this case. If Germany wants to bar foreign influences and keep Christianity, more power to them. If they want to allow all religions in, more power to them. If you do...Jump to post
I have no idea why many of you are in denial or just don't want this to be labelled as terrorism. I think we can make many parallels between the terrorist attack on Independence Day and a terrorist attack in New York City in March of 1994 committed by cab driver Rashid Baz when he opened fire on a v...Jump to post
No surprise here that it was an Arab shooting up an Israeli ticket counter. Not a disgruntled employee. Not anything else. Initial reports do indicate that Hesham Mohamed Hadayet had connections to some terrorists (such as Abdul Hakim Murad), but no confirmed connections to terrorist <i>organization...Jump to post
A very happy Independence Day to everyone in the republic!!
"So, as for celebrations, let's celebrate our freedom, our liberty, on July 4th, and then let's put on the armor of the righteous and do battle with those would take these precious legacies from us!"
>Maybe that is why Alaska and National aren't thought that highly of. Say you are going to fly SEA-LAX. You would never think twice about going UA. Its because AS has a bad reputation.

>My question is, how is it in a society that bans any reference to Nazism can something like this be tolerated? <i>My</i> question is, how can a society tolerate the ban any type of free speech?

I would like to see defense spending increase a <b>ton</b>. With the post-Clinton military (stripped down from its former Reagan-era glory), we do NOT have the ability to fight a total war in one theatre, let alone two.
