"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." --C.S. Lewis,

Do you and I see eye to eye about this Michael?
Is anyone in Boston or DC paying attention? I doubt it.
After reading the paragraph below SLOWLY re-read the last sentence in its entirety. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_River_War
“ How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
- Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome. ”
As written by Lt. (and future Prime Minister) Winston Churchill about his service in the 4th Queen's Own Hussars, the 31st Punjab Regiment, and her Majesties’ 21St Lancers, during his Army service in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Egypt, Sudan, South Sudan etc. as published in “The River War” 1899.
* IMHO there are no “Feminist” who give a hoot about the fate of women under the foot of Mohammedism. So called “Feminist” today work only for the downfall of this country whether they realize it or not.
I don’t usually quote the Old Testament, I think that the Bible of Moses and the Prophets is much too filled with violence and sexual content than is good for young children and old women. LOL But here goes nothing.
They who sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind. Hosea: chapter 8, verse 7.
