Far too many people are under the misguided impression that Justice and the Law, are one and the same, just as many people are also under the illusion that the United States has a constitution that protects us all with equal justice, that we WILL have our day in court and if innocent, nothing can happen to us.
These people are in the same class of children who desperately cling to believing in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.

Muslim-bashing has become so much a part of Law Enforcement training and accepted by a bigotry-driven government that nobody seems to care, mind or even think about what might be wrong with a bigotry-promoting message.
The local Seattle FBI and the local Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTFF) received funds from a Fatherland Security program called “Rewards for Justice”, to launch a public-awareness campaign against terrorism so, what do they do?
Check out the local buses and you will see the ad below on its sides, 16 pictures of “trrrrts” who all look to the layman and the ultra-patriotic bigot, as “Muzlems“. I can just picture the local (National?) bigotry community, the Hate-Islam radio hosts, the right-wing-nut Tea Party membership and the Republican Party membership who love America so much that they are willing to destroy all “Muzlems” from Amerika; I can just picture them chortling with delight because their position that Muslim are America’s greatest threat, has been underscored by the Feds.
“Lock and load boys! Let’s make ‘merca safe!” This will be their rallying call.
The JTFF is not known for its tolerant position towards Muslims, I know at least one member, a detective from the Seattle Police Department Read more »
President Obama’s speech was just great today, he spoke resolutely, looking presidential, moral and protective of the USA.
Most Americans would have felt proud that their president was standing up for justice, against Gitmo, against terrorism and unwaveringly for the United States.
That is, until we realize that the man before us is a lawyer and is excellent at selecting words so that most people believe they are hearing what they want to hear. This was a speech where we heard a lot, but most of the sounds were of Obama tap-dancing around real issues, saying he had nothing to do with things that he had everything to do with and we were…ARE…expected to lap it all up as God’s own truth. As Groucho Marx once said, “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?” Read more »
Here it comes, the wide-eyed look of shocked innocence…why do “they” hate us so much? After all we did liberate them from Saddam who was absolutely the worst example of depravity.
Ten years after the invasion of Iraq (let us not dwell on Afghanistan for now), we have nothing but unimaginable destruction, mayhem and slaughter at record scales, to show for what we have done, let’s see how and what we did there…
Before the invasion, Iraq was a thriving nation with modern amenities, systems that were more advanced than most countries in the region. Iraq had civil services that ran smoothly…a Police that kept law and order, transportation, healthcare, education that rivaled the best among most nations.
It was our plan to destroy the infrastructure of the entire nation. “infrastructure” means everything that makes things work; destroy power generation, destroy bridges and roads, destroy all manufacturing plants; if it moves, destroy it, if it makes something, destroy it.
Iraq was, as our leaders promised, “pushed back to the Stone Age”.
We told our own people, who were desperate to see only the best in America, that we were saving all humanity, that if Saddam were to continue to lead Iraq, he would use his “Weapons of Mass Destruction” (WMD) on his neighbors including (gasp!!) ISRAEL and quite possibly, the US itself. Read more »
A few days ago, some people sent out e-mails amongst Muslims, with a link to a WIRED magazine article headed, “Report: U.S. Muslim Terrorism Was Practically Nil in 2012“. Accompanying comments noted how Muslims were really not violent despite current perceptions. The e-mails did nothing to please me because I saw that the focus was still on us Muslims. To me it should not be a matter of note if Muslims were less violent than expected; a matter of general note should be the state of terrorism or, of violence across the board, without a “Muzlem” sub-category…and no other faith sub-category.
Imagine reports from prestigious institutions that are headed:
“Blacks are less sub-human and less prone to mindless violence in 2012“.
Heads would roll all over the country and the outrage would not subside probably for decades.
However, we get a report headed:
“And the Triangle study (below) tracks indictments, not convictions. “
I believe it is important to keep in mind that our “War!” against “trrrrsm” is aimed at Muslims and has nothing to do with actual violence against a civilian population; if this report showed ZERO accusations of terrorism, the US and the West, would still be on a bender against Muslim “trrrrsts” because Read more »
The admirable thing about Jews of today is that even while they might dislike each other between groups, there are some issues over which they come together like a solid rock and thus scare the devil out of self-promoting politicians who in turn, make sure that Anti-Semitism or, even a shadow thereof is caught and fought before it ever raises its ugly head.
The discouraging thing about us Muslims is that we are ever Read more »
