+ @Mike Farmer, Right, there are fundamentalists who believe that... let's call them 'cafeteria Muslims' aren't real Muslims. That's quite likely the case. Where I'm coming [. . .]
Jason Kuznicki
+ @Rufus, I too am glad to see Murali here. He's faulted my Hindu theology in the past, but the trimurti makes such a great [. . .]
+ @Murali, Glad you're still around Murali. I'm intending sometime in the future to get around to discussing the Ramayana. I'm actually about to dive into [. . .]
ThatPirateGuy

David Schaengold

ThatPirateGuy
+ @Robert Cheeks, Your right that FDR did that. It is one of America's great shames. Like the trail of tears, slavery, and many more. It [. . .]
ThatPirateGuy
+ @ThatPirateGuy, Your right. I do embarrass people who don't actually value our freedoms by showing them what it means to care about freedom. I would [. . .]
+ @Sam M, presumably, some move toward establishing market prices for residential on-street parking would have to happen alongside removing parking ordinances. In theory, I can [. . .]
Sam M

@greginak, G-Man, ....Saudi Royal Family, Middle East, North Africa.

Robert Cheeks
+ @Mark Thompson, Oh please, a person converts to Christianity by making a choice..we call that free will. For the Muslim, one is required to explain [. . .]
Murali
+ Awesome!!! “We fry him — for five hundred billion trillion years!” If I had been eating when I read this I would have choked. I laughed [. . .]

+ "...but there’s absolutely no reason in the world that the Cordoba Center should be an issue in the Florida gubernatorial election." I disagree. Ground Zero is [. . .]
E.D. Kain

Thanks y'all. I'm certainly no right-winger. So it's pretty funny to be on the list. But it's cool. Whatever works!

+ @Mike Farmer, Is this one view, or is this the subject of much debate within Islam as practiced in the West? This survey of [. . .]
Bob
+ @Scott, no one is saying they "can't leave." They could put the building on the market, sell and pack-up. The question is governmental [. . .]
Robert Cheeks

@Mike Farmer, I think there's a huge difference between a fundy Christian and a Muslim. I think you do too.

Robert Cheeks
+ @Jason Kuznicki, Jason, don't add to my comments. I said get 'em the hell outta here, not kill 'em. If they continue, kill 'em until [. . .]
Robert Cheeks

+ @62across, Both Obama and Holder have spoken about bringing the AWB back. The AWB was a infringement on my constitutional rights and those of [. . .]

Islam is not Islam if it's not fundamental. I will provide links to this idea among Muslims.

+ Oddly, Cowen's piece makes no mention whether the idea is meant to refer to dense urban centers, suburbs, exurbs, or all of the above. [. . .]
Bob

@Jaybird, I was thinking of calling it Mohamed Atta Boy, or maybe just Atta Boy.

Rick Ungar

@andrew e., Yeah...but we have to fight back against that. Too much at stake.

Rick Ungar

@Rufus, Hey Rufus- the gang at League of Ordinary Gentlemen were nice enough to allow me to guest post.

North

Is Koz on the list?

62across
