. The biggest THREAT to the USA is ADDICTIONS...

.... people with religion addiction/religious terrorists want to kill anyone who isn't their exact same religion/psychosis... all religions foment religious terrorism...

.... people with drug addiction want to stay stoned/worthless 24/7/365 while being supported by the gov't... killing to get even more drug money...

.... people with homosexuality addiction want to get on the 'marriage' feedbag of gov't/business marriage benefits society intended to aid heterosexual couples...

. Biggest PROBLEM the USA faces is how to provide a livable income to its citizens when it doesn't need most of its workers anymore... how to keep them from dangerous idle thoughts/pursuits in the process...

"So now that we have fixed the number it really doesn't change the argument much. Muslims have been around for well over a thousand years and have not taken over the planet or subjected everybody to Sharia law yet."

If they had their way they would. Have you seen the "mission statement" (for lack of better terminology) of Al Queda? That is one of their goals and it all starts with returning now to what was the largest expansion of Muslim influence in the world with control of most of Spain, a majority of Northern Africa and all of the Middle East under one religious and political leader.

Hmm. OK I stand corrected. Always glad to learn something. Thanks to all who pointed out my mistake.

So now that we have fixed the number it really doesn't change the argument much. Muslims have been around for well over a thousand years and have not taken over the planet or subjected everybody to Sharia law yet.

Most people don't want to live like that.

That is an old issue and has been going on for centuries. Human caused global warming is a much bigger threat. And unlike the petty and selfish we-vs-them stuff this threatens everybody. Humans, animals, the eco-system, the habitat.

Um...as has been pointed out this is not true. Arabs have existed since before Christ but not in the Muslim faith. A little know fact is that Jews, Muslims, and Christians all worship the same God...it is what happens after that God that their beliefs differ.

BTW, the Immigration Act of 1965 is another big reason this country has gone down the sh!t hole. More than half of the the people in this country today is here because of it.

Supply and Demand
The law of supply and demand dictates that an increase in supply results in a lower price.

An increase in the supply of labor, results in lower wages.

If you want to cut wages in half, double the workforce.

Almost half of the US population is here due to the Immigration Reform Act of 1965 and its subsequent iterations. Add to that the massive amount of work visas, student visas, and refugee visas, and you have doubled the labor market.Comprende?

Once we get the Govt down to a manageable size. Then we can go after the next biggest problem in America. The Federal Reserve and all the foreign bankers in the US. That control the US Govt. "It is through this front group, called the Council on Foreign Relations, and its influence over the media, tax-exempt foundations, universities, and government agencies that the international financiers have been able to dominate the domestic and foreign policies of the United States ever since". The CFR, which was
initially dominated by J.P. Morgan and later by the Rockefellers, is
the most powerful group in America today. It is even more powerful than the federal government, because almost all of the key positions in government are held by its members. In other words, it is the United States government. -- Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin.

Didnt mean to get off on a religion tangent. But on topic. Biggest problem in the US, is the Federal Govt and all it's agencies. Too much Govt, too much over-reach. Specially since the US Govt owns the patent on pot ( cannabis ) for it's cancer curing properties and every patent for each cancer it kills. Yet wants to jail everyone for smoking it and growing it. Something is wrong. Because how can you patent a natural growing plant? It's illegal.

Just google "US Govt owns patent on cannabis" . Im going to post the link, but not sure if this site will allow me to do so./netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=6630507.PN.&OS=PN%2F6630507&RS=PN%2F6630507

Via PBS website.

570 C.E. Muhammad is born in Mecca. He comes from a noble family and is well-known for his honesty and upright character.

610 C.E. According to Muslim belief, at the age of 40, Muhammad is visited by the angel Gabriel while on retreat in a cave near Mecca. The angel recites to him the first revelations of the Quran and informs him that he is God's prophet. Later, Muhammad is told to call his people to the worship of the one God, but they react with hostility and begin to persecute him and his followers.

622 C.E. After enduring persecution in Mecca, Muhammad and his followers migrate to the nearby town of Yathrib (later to be known as Medina), where the people there accepted Islam. This marks the "hijrah" or "emigration," and the beginning of the Islamic calendar. In Medina, Muhammad establishes an Islamic state based on the laws revealed in the Quran and the inspired guidance coming to him from God. Eventually he begins to invite other tribes and nations to Islam.

630 C.E. Muhammad returns to Mecca with a large number of his followers. He enters the city peacefully, and eventually all its citizens accept Islam. The prophet clears the idols and images out of the Kaaba and rededicates it to the worship of God alone.

633 C.E. Muhammad dies after a prolonged illness. The Muslim community elects his father-in-law and close associate, Abu Bakr, as caliph, or successor.

638 C.E. Muslims enter the area north of Arabia, known as "Sham," including Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq.

641 C.E. Muslims enter Egypt and rout the Byzantine army. Muslims consider their conquest as the liberation of subjugated people, since in most instances they were under oppressive rule.

655 C.E. Islam begins to spread throughout North Africa.

661 C.E. Imam Ali is killed, bringing to an end the rule of the four "righteous caliphs": Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali. This also marks the beginning of the Umayyad rule.

711 C.E. Muslims enter Spain in the west and India in the east. Eventually almost the entire Iberian Peninsula is under Islamic control.

732 C.E. Muslims are defeated at Potiers in France by Charles Martel.

750 C.E. The Abbasids take over rule from the Umayyads, shifting the seat of power to Baghdad.

1000 C.E. Islam continues to spread through the continent of Africa, including Nigeria, which served as a trading liaison between the northern and central regions of Africa.

1099 C.E. European Crusaders take Jerusalem from the Muslims. Eventually Muslims defeat the Crusaders and regain control of the holy land.

1120 C.E. Islam continues to spread throughout Asia. Malaysian traders interact with Muslims who teach them about Islam.

1299 C.E. The earliest Ottoman state is formed in Anatolia, Turkey.

1453 C.E. Ottomans conquer the Byzantine seat of Constantinople and change its name to Istanbul.

Circa 1800 C.E. Approximately 30 percent of Africans forced into slavery in the United States are Muslim.

1870-1924 C.E. Muslim immigrants from the Arab world voluntarily come to the United States until the Asian Exclusion Act is passed in 1924.

World War I ends with the defeat and dissolution of the Ottoman Empire, which was the last of the Islamic empires. Many regions populated by Muslims in Africa and Asia are colonized by Europeans. Traditional religious ways of life are threatened and, in some cases, destroyed.

1930 C.E. The Nation of Islam is created in the U.S. by W. D. Fard. It is based on some Islamic ideas, but contains innovations, such as the appointment or declaration of Elijah Muhammad as a prophet.

1948 C.E. The state of Israel is created. Some Palestinian and Lebanese refugees flee to the United States, among them, Muslims and Christians.

1952 C.E. The McCarren-Walter Act relaxes the U.S. ban on Asian immigration. Muslim students come to the U.S. from many nations.

1965 C.E. Revisions of immigration law further open the doors for Muslim immigration.

1975 C.E. Wallace D. Muhammad, the son of Elijah Muhammad, takes over leadership of the Nation of Islam after his father's death and brings most of his followers into mainstream Islam. He later creates the Muslim American Society, which attracts many members, most of whom are African-American.

1979 C.E. The Iranian Revolution results in the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the first attempt at an Islamic state in the modern era.

JeuceFlavor, I agree with SemiSteve that a link would be nice.

Having said that, I have seen that type of study of islam before and it is right on the money.

Having spent a lot of time in a number of different 'muslim countries' and having friends who have to live with the effects, I can also tell you first hand that it is absolutely true.

People need to learn about what it is to be a "dhimmi".

The people in Syria just had to sign a 'contract' making them dhimmis.

So what is your problem with what JeuceFlavor posted?

Show us where he was wrong in any of it.

And to SemiSteve's issue with Muslims and Islam:
Think Islam won't effect you?...That's what the countries listed below once thought.

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2. 7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris — car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam — Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Isla mic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons

SemiSteve, thank you for 'counseling' BuzzLOL. Seem to be some 'issues' there.

Steve, you and I are probably polar opposites as far as political views.

But I have come to respect you and your decency even though I disagree with your politics.

Now having said that, BuzzLOL is squarely in your corner ... the liberal corner. I notice a couple libs have already tried to distance themselves from him. But he is yours.

And he is even MORE yours since he apparently is a radical socialist/communist.

Sorry, but it is what it is.

Take care, SemiSteve.

Buzz, ya got some radical ideas there and it has obviously ruffled some feathers around here. I suppose you expected this. You've attacked their basic belief systems in a confrontational way. That is going to raise some hackles and get you ridiculed / attacked back. If that's what you wanted you'll get it.

You -could- take another approach.

Most of the folks around here are fairly good people who will treat you well if you treat them well. And it doesn't really matter if your belief systems are in complete misalignment. It's pretty interesting to share and learn if it's done in a respectful considerate way. Ya know if everybody agreed on everything there would not be much point in sharing here.

All I'm saying is if you keep it on the up and up and just lay out your ideas without the rough rhetoric you'll get more positive results. Oh, some will still display their callousness because they don't know any better. And they often just get ignored when folks get tired of it. That same thing could happen to anybody if they are too unpleasant. If ya know what I mean...

Now may I ask one thing? Do you really believe that all religious people hate atheists? Because I don't. I know it's not true from personal experience. I'm an atheist myself. Several of us regulars here are atheists. And we've been shown a lot of love by other posters around here who are strongly invested in their beliefs in God. It's OK to be yourself and let unanswered questions be. We've been showing people here that atheists can be very good neighbors and good citizens, chipping away at stereotypes. You could be part of that if you just lighten up a bit. Ya know? Something to think about, anyway. Best regards and happy posting.

biggest national-security problem is Barack Obama.” "Our biggest national-security problem is Barack Obama.”
.
>>>With the Obama administration grappling with a crisis in Ukraine, former United Nations ambassador John Bolton took the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday and declared that the country’s “biggest national-security problem is Barack Obama.”

Bolton honed in on the terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, which he described as paradigm of President Obama’s foreign-policy failures because the president “has done nothing to avenge Chris Stevens’s death.”

“That is a terrible lesson for our adversaries,” Bolton said. “Under Barack Obama you can murder his personal representative and get away scot-free.”

He also warned that the matter will come back to haunt Hillary Clinton if, as most suspect, she launches a presidential bid in 2016. “We will be happy to tell Hillary Clinton in unmistakable terms, ‘We know what difference it makes, even if you don’t,’” he said.<<<

Anyway, glad to have you here. Welcome. Do settle in and share with us.

.. As I keep writing, but some don't seem capable of understanding, I don't hate "people", I hate religion addiction/psychosis mental illness... and, well, all other addictions and mental illnesses as well...

.. After being the victim of religious terrorism a few times, or just seeing other victims, one begins to hate religion addiction/psychosis mental illness...

.. By "people of faith", are you referring to religion? Since religion indicates a severe lack of 'faith'...

. SE3.5, those religion businesses were created for the MONEY... without all the mental illness that religion pumps into society daily, we wouldn't need all those "shelters'...

. The Story of Noah's Ark is used to brainwash religic's toddlers on up to the concept that 99+% of people on the planet should rightly be killed...

"the religics all hate PEOPLE of any religion/belief different in even the slightest way from their own and believe they should all be dead"

That must be the reason they founded so many colleges, hospitals, food pantries, homeless shelters, women's shelters, medical clinics, etc.

. Actually, I don't understand how some people can complain about Obama after watching EvilBushJr., The 'W'orst President in History, spend 8 years dragging the USA and most of the world down into Total Economic Collapse by Fall 2008..!!! Remember the headlines?: "Worst Collapse Since 1929/Hoover"..? "Banks Can't Lend"? "Auto Companies Failing"? "All Businesses Within Hours of Failure"? "Bailouts Needed to go Forward"? ... Plus, don't forget Jr's 9/11, two unneeded wars he couldn't win, failure to get his buddy Osama bin Laden, etc...

. I don't hate religion addicted PEOPLE, I just hate religion addiction/psychosis mental illness... however, the religics all hate PEOPLE of any religion/belief different in even the slightest way from their own and believe they should all be dead... as we see currently in the Ukraine where the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Christians in the east side of Ukraine and the Roman Catholic Christians in the west side of Ukraine are killing up to 100 of each other daily... a battle that has lasted 1500 years now to some extent... atheist Russia is trying to settle both sides down and disarm them... Roman Catholic USA Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to support and arm his favored side...

The biggest threat to the US I see is a Liberal Socialist President that is pushing the country towards socialism every day. Pulling money from defense to constantly spend on low lifes that have no drive to better themselves or this great country.

First of all, BuzzLOL, SemiSteve is right.

You are new around here.

WELCOME to Gas Buddies Political forum.

Enjoy that discussion.

Having said that, I am not sure why you found it necessary to come in here with guns blazing against people of faith.

Maybe your fellow traveler SemiSteve could explain that to us.

Anyway, Welcome BuzzLOL

We will have some good discussions if you are up to it.

Good Grief AnotherOne. Cut the guy some slack. I don't recall BuzzLOL ever posting in Politics before and here you are accusing him of stuff.

He didn't say he hates anything.

And your reference to atheists was over-the-top stereotyping. Plenty of us atheists are filled with love for our fellow humans.

I, too, am curious about the religion-business reference. What do you mean by that BuzzLOL? I know the Scientologists run their outfit like a business. And there are plenty of pretty rich televangalists. A lot of churches seem to be more about collecting funds than providing a place for worship.

Sadly most politicians feel constrained to be in the fund-raising favor-doing business 24-7. Our system almost forces them to do it just to stay in office. Perhaps if we had term limits that would not happen. But lobbying is OUT of control. It's total pay-for-play in DC and everybody knows it.

So how do we bring jobs back?

AnotherOne, your theory about Obama being the biggest threat is absurd. If that were true then it must mean things were just fine before he took office. And we all know that was not the case. The economy was in free-fall, as I recall. Thirty years of GOP / neoliberal corporate-friendly policies MASHED the middle class and created hordes of poor.

BuzzLOL, "The religion businesses HATE DEMOCRACY...!"

First of all, what are "religion businesses"?

Why do you hate religion and people of faith so much?

Are you another one of those hate-filled, biased and bigoted atheists that hates any person of faith or any church?

. Lobbying/bribing only works on politicians with GREED ADDICTION...

. We need to bring the JOBS back the GOP shipped off to China and got a tax break for doing it! Then we can get corporations off EvilbushJr. KoolAIDs/corporate welfare and get the people back to WORK...

. The religion businesses HATE DEMOCRACY...!
