  • Obama promotes religious tolerance in India speech

    01/27/2015 4:20:20 AM PST · 18 of 26
    Pollster1 to Olog-hai

    I cannot imagine why we still have those false rumors about Obama being Muslim and not Christian.

    #1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”

    #2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

    #3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

    #4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”

    #5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”

    #6 “Islam has always been part of America”

    #7 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

    #8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

    #9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

    #10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”

    #11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”

    #12 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

    #13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”

    #14 “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

    #15 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

    #16 “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”

    #17 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

    #18 “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”

    #19 “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

    #20 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

    I also back having a citizenship pathway for illegal immigrants - my pathway is for them to go back home, apply for legal entry to our country, and then apply for citizenship. As for Gov. Walker’s ideas - no, thank you. I will not vote for him in the primaries or in the general election. He may be good in some other areas, but Amnesty, the Second Amendment, and repealing Obamacare are non-negotiable absolutes.

    I know the feeling:

    To the world, I was Pollster1, an ultra-traditional Protestant and spiritual leader teaching the Bible to dozens of students in my church’s Sunday School community. But inside, I was keeping a secret. “Since I was 5 years old, I really thought I was a puppy,” I told The Post in an interview last week from the People’s Republic of Maryland, where I have been living for the past two years — as an adorable Golden Retriever — following species-reassignment surgery. As a boy growing up in Baltimore, MD, I knew early on that something was amiss. But there was no Internet to tell me what being transspecies was all about. Whatever it was, I instinctively knew to keep quiet about it. “How does a 5-year-old in 1966 tell his mother he’s really a puppy?” I said. At Loch Raven High in Baltimore, I dated humans, but relationships were short-lived, even when measured in dog years. “I loved ­being with them, going for walks in the park, but they never wanted to play fetch — and it didn’t feel right,” I said.

    Healthcare is a “right”, meaning doctors and nurses have an obligation to treat those who demand their services, whether or not those patients choose to pay - in the liberal world. I prefer the conservative world, where doctors provided emergency care out of compassion, so no one missed out on essential care, but medical professionals were otherwise free to make their own decisions. I miss freedom, and perhaps that is why liberals disgust me.

    It was 45 F at half time when they were checked. They would need to have filled and checked their balls at 50 F hotter. So a 95 F room.

    There's a little more going on than that. Suppose the pressure gauges are digital and read to the nearest 0.5 psi (plausible since all reported pressures I've heard were in increments of 0.5). Then you just have to go over 12.25 to read 12.5. Add in that the air warms up when compressed, so a freshly inflated ball in a 75 degree room should read a higher pressure initially than it would an hour later in the same room. The end result from intentionally staying just on the side of arguably following the rules would be 11 psi balls by halftime at 45 degrees F.

    Odd to criticize a movie called "American Sniper" for being a movie about an American sniper. If they want to criticize Rumsfeld and Cheney, they should make the movie "Rumsfeld and Cheney" and see how much interest it generates. Next they'll criticize "Frozen" for having too much ice and ignoring the other three seasons.

    1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.

    2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

    The word “hypocrite” is often used in a manner inconsistent with its origin (meaning “actor”) and its connotation (that the claimed beliefs are only acted and are insincere). While most Christians from time to time act in a manner that is not in accord with Christian beliefs, this is not evidence of hypocrisy, just human imperfection. I think we are far too intimidated by the words “hypocrisy” and “hypocrite”. We need to stand up and say: “No, I am not a hypocrite, just imperfect. That is why we all need Jesus in our lives.”

    It was disclosed that Obama has a personal kill list. Obama’s drone strikes have resulted in the deaths of 2400 people. Moreover, those drone strikes have killed approximately 200 children.

    Even with Obama, who is almost pure evil (okay, 2/3 evil and 1/3 laziness) and is the most dangerous threat to the United States in our history, we should be fair and accurate. Were these 15-17 y/o "children" working as soldiers/terrorists, or were they under age 10 and merely in or near the house/vehicle being targeted? It doesn't change the moral calculus behind killing the targeted thugs, but if the deaths are going to be introduced at all in discussion, they should be presented accurately.

    I won’t give the usurper that formerly prestigious title either. He’s certainly the Occupant of the White House, but that’s about it.

We need to kill it all and then find a way to salt the fields so nothing introduced by Obama ever grows back in our free country.

    Obama’s legacy should be even less than a stained blue dress; it should be nothing beyond a few footnotes in history books that explain the devastation that will hopefully have been repaired.

The best thing she can do is talk issues, raise funds for Cruz, and talk all other conservatives onto the sidelines to clear the field for Cruz - that and do her best to get Christie, Rubio, Romney, and a handful of Bushes to run and split the liberal crossover vote.

My path is for those criminals to go home to their own countries, apply for legal entry, and come here like my ancestors did - with permission. As for the criminals who are caught here after illegal entry, they should be fingerprinted, DNA-swabbed, and barred forever from any path to legal entry.

    Good answer. I hope advisers to our next president are already thinking in the directions you mentioned. We are in for some exceptionally ugly times, both domestically and internationally, and I cannot think of many leaders in history who were up to the challenge we face today.

    Even with a mass-casualty attack far larger than 9-11, I find it hard to imagine that today’s democrats could stay motivated for more than a few months (or republicans for more than a couple of years). Even with a leader of Reagan’s stature, I find it hard to imagine that the republican leadership would be willing to sustain the necessary level of effort in the face of liberal opposition. Short of a sequence of mass-casualty attacks that together change our demographics by permanently removing urban voters, I find it hard to imagine that we would cut our frivolous spending or sustain a serious military effort.

    There are many areas where we need serious work, including the ones you mention. Sadly, I suspect the list of major problems will be even longer in two years, the earliest date when we would have any chance of nudging our country in the right direction.

    What do you think is the correct strategy for dealing with a rogue state with a significant radical Muslim population and a nuclear weapons program (a description that covers Iraq before George W.

Would toppling the government and then leaving with the message “behave or we’ll come back and topple the next government” have been a better strategy than a long-term occupation? It seems like many national leaders, even in Islamic countries, are interested enough in the trappings of power to avoid risks that would surely end their rule. Is there a third option that would be superior?

    I admit I was wrong about the Iraq war (I supported it) but contend my error or made was for all the right reasons.

    I would like to argue that you were right, but I cannot make that case. Given what happened with the "Arab Spring", it seems likely that any Iraqi government other than a long-term strongman like Saddam would have been destabilized and overthrown those for whom Obama feels sympathy, as happened with Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Yemen, and the other Arab unrest. Saddam's removal made instability inevitable once Obama took power, and there was no better strategy, better tactics, better set of objectives, or other improvement that could have led to a less negative outcome than the status quo ante.

    I'd like to say that once we have a president who supports America we can go back in Iraq and fix the mess we made, but that is not realistic. Another war in Iraq would have even less support than our recent war, and the opposition would be more motivated to hold out and wait for a new president who would walk away from Iraq. We can't fix the mess we made, and it's going to be both a negative precedent for the world and a major, unsolvable regional problem for a long time.

    Romney-supporters in the GOP leadership probably try to feed the same soggy broccoli to their kids three days in a row, and they are just as surprised when the kids reject it the third time as they were the first two times.

    The scientific method sure has advanced since I was young; we just tested hypotheses against the facts. Taking a vote to decide scientific questions is much more democratic.

    I do not believe that the earth’s climate is stable, but neither am I convinced that (1) the climate is warming rapidly, (2) a warming climate is bad, (3) human activity is the primary cause of the warming, and (4) increasing government control over our lives will prevent global warming without doing even more harm than is prevented. I just want this and all scientific questions decided based on evidence, not a rush to accept the theory that will bring the most money to researchers and the most power to politicians.
