    This may actually be a good thing.

    Now the House can throw legislation at the Senate, and have not just Obama but the Democrat Party as obstructionists.

    Plus they have enough true conservatives to hold filibuster in full effect for Judge confirmations.

    Not to mention that the GOP now occupies the House position with authority to investigate the Obama administration.

  2. Quote:
    “We are dealing with fundamentally hostile attitudes towards other groups — particularly against Germans and Christians,” the minister continued, adding, “We need to act as decisively against this as against xenophobia.”
    end quote.

    Get real, why don’t you?
    This IS xenophobia! The xenophobia and outright hatred of MUSLIMS!

  3. Quote:
    In his view, “the Iraqi government, the United States and the United Nations” bear “full responsibility” for the Baghdad massacre. “In the name of what religion are the meek of the earth massacred?” he asked.
    end quote.

    In the name of ISLAM, Bishop Ibrahim.
    And you know it.

    “Many of these converts are basically white kids from the suburbs” in search of a community, said Segal, whose group has produced numerous papers on those arrested, including Chesser. They are overwhelmingly male, frequently in their 20s and eager to “become something more than they are, or be part of something greater,” he said.

    In uncertain economic, political and social times this type of comfort conversion could become a major problem in Europe and the UK, even more so if it becomes a significant critical mass verging on hysteria.

  5. Reading through this story: “UK: Cameron’s Fury as Prisoners Get the Right to Vote After Coalition Loses Out Yet Again to Europe”

    It felt like my breathing was constricted. Regardless of this issue, having the UK told what to do by the European court over something so long standing (and sensible) without the National Parliament or UK courts having a say, ruling or precendent…

    It’s just a nail in the coffin of British Common Law. Made subservient by a Napoleonic/Civil Law inquisitorial decision which has no recourse or consideration for local conditions.

    I’m from a country blessed to have the Common Law passed on to us by our Colonial founders. Looking over at Civil Law systems, how could you live under such, they are so unjust.

    Farewell, Great Britain. Farewell, the Mother of Parliaments and forge of freedom.

  6. When will the French have enough of their sisters being raped, their brothers beaten? When will they deal the Maghrebians a taste of 1960? After being kicked out of Algeria, why would France allow any Algerian (moroccan, tunisian, etc…) into their country. They have no claims whatsoever.
