When she talks about how men should be allowed to marry more than one woman because so many women can’t find a good husband or a non-abusive relationship, she seems to neglect the fact that if Muslim laws weren’t so strict towards women she wouldn’t HAVE to find a good man…. She could go find a job, take care of her kids on her own or even (and I know this sounds crazy) but drive a car!!!

She can’t find a good man that’s not abusive, because her choices are limited to Islamic men. Most of them would prefer a goat or a small boy over this thing.

Polygamy? How stupid! That’s definitely not fair and balanced! Everyone knows there’s only one true religion: mine! My marriage is monogamous and it works mostly! So everyone who has a different way doesn’t succeed in anything! We should spread our beliefs to the rest of the world because their ways will never work the way I want it to!

The bible makes no reference of either of them tied with government anywhere! No nation is under our Christian God as far as we know. There are no Jews and Christians in political positions! All Muslims are extremists! You’ll never see Christians overreacting like that. So what if Jesus is the number one quoted prophet in the Quran! That doesn’t mean theyre not dangerous!

When human beings claim to speak for G-d and they aren’t and create a country that is ruled by the rules of the religion in question that is a human led theocracy and that is a disaster. We saw this in the ancient scriptures from the Jewish side, we also saw it on the Christian side thanks to people like Henry the VIII and the Papal Emperors and we are seeing it NOW (as it was back in the day) through Islam. If indeed we have seen that human led theocracies are disasters why continue to do it? Thankfully Judaism and Christianity got the memo, hence why for the past few centuries we have not had human led Judaic or Christian theocratic empires. What we got instead are freedoms of religions and worship and other freedoms that are protected in order for everyone to enjoy their lives as long as they obey elementary laws. It seems though that Islam did not get the memo or it did and chooses to ignore it, thinking perhaps that a world wide caliphate will succeed where other religious (and other philosophies like socialism and communism) empires failed.

Actually Buddhism, behind Islam, is one of the most repressive religions in the world. The Kingdom of Bhutan (Buddhist country) is one of the most repressive countries for Christian and other non buddhist in the world. The persecution of Christians in that country is astonishing and it is so in other countries as well… Search for Tibet persecution of Christians or, Sri Lanka, Burma, Laos as well as the Kingdom of Bhutan and you shall see.

OK, so gas spiked for a couple of months in the summer of 2008, but it never maintained a steady high like it has under Obama, which has maintained a level above $3 since the end of Dec 2010. That is over a year of over $3 a gallon gas prices.
Plus, once again, Obama promised a steep increase in all energy prices. He has made this come true by restricting our ability to drill for our own oil, while sending billions to other countries so they can do what he won’t let us do. Every step of the way he has been obstructionist against our ability to become energy independent, all the while giving billions to solar companies that are going bankrupt because their technology isn’t working.
How much does it have to cost us before you will realize that he isn’t doing us any favors?

For one thing, that ultrapopular drill-baby-drill panacea would require a huge investment of funds, yet wouldn’t yield more oil for years. For another, oil production is actually up, and the refineries currently in existence aren’t currently operating at peak capacity. For still another, the global price of crude oil reflects instability in the nations that produce the majority of it (i.e., Middle Eastern countries), and is beyond our control. Even if we were to produce more oil, our total oil production capacity isn’t enough to change these figures. And, finally, the right seems to be allergic to any suggestion that we should decrease our oil consumption in any way, preferring instead to demand that the government fix the problem.

Talk about oversimplified and inaccurate!
We were already drilling in the Gulf when Obumbles came into office, and he halted all drilling and also shut down all currently producing oil rigs. He killed the Canadian pipeline, and sent billions to Brazil so they could drill offshore, while preventing us from doing the same. He has also refused to allow any more refineries to be built. The current refineries don’t have the capacity to supply our needs, and can’t run at full capacity because they need constant maintenance to keep running. Then, there’s the new mandate to reduce sulfur in gasoline, which is making the refineries retool to meet the new requirements, which has slowed production and increased gas. costs by another 25 cents a gallon.

Shortly after mandating the moratorium on U.S. deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, solyndra gunwalker gave billions of taxpayer dollars to Mexico’s state controlled petroleum company, PEMEX, for THEIR deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Billions to Brazil for their offshore production as well as the stoppage of the XL are among myriad efforts to raise energy costs here and by extension, the cost of everything else that the citizens of the U.S. are already struggling to afford.

The argument that the global market dictates the price is misleading, since it never addresses how shipping costs add to the price of oil the US exports, as well as the enormous effect increasing the domestic supply would have. Increasing the supply would ‘necessarily’ reduce the price, and he cannot allow that!

Ive spent a little time in a mosque because I am an Atheist but I like to inform myself of all religions. I was mostly interested in Islam right after 9/11 because I looked around and saw all this blind fear. (Around my house someone rammed a car into the mosque I actually visited to gain my knowledge.) What I saw when I went was a lot of acceptance because I was a man, and I can elaborate on that a little even… I was so impressed by the reception I received that I went to my fiance (Now wife) and asked her if she would like to come with me to learn a little about the religion. She was excited and a lil nervous but decided to come anyways. The reception she received was less than kind. She was not allowed to even talk to me once we entered the mosque (Because women were too sacred to be talked to be us dirty men, even though we were the ones talking about the philosophy of the whole religion) but even after that we continued to listen to what they had to say. This went on for a month or… Read more »

People who used to come over and talk to me about philosophy would look at me and walk the other way. Until I finally stopped going, I was upset honestly because I thought I had made so actual friends in that religion, but it turns out if I wasn’t interested in being a Muslim, I wasn’t interesting enough to waste any more time on :(

In truth there are a lot of churches that do the same, I have had that same experience, but thankfully not all churches are like that in fact those experiences have been very few and very far in between. It can be due to the denomination in question or else the regional location (and the people within as to their culture and their color of skin, etc.) of the church. With that said, have you gone to many other mosques in other cities, then pretty much had that same experience? That is something to definetly explore. I as a woman couldn’t do it of course. Interestingly enough your fiancee WOULD HAVE no matter where (here, in other countries, in other states, it will not matter) the SAME EXACT experience that she had. That dude that went to a mosque for 30 days for a movie that he did or a show I think a few years ago he had a grand time, however he did because he had a camera crew with him and he went to just one mosque.

Get a few weird looks :P) but I have never walked into any church and they told me I couldn’t talk to my fiance or any of the other women around.. That was the most shocking part, but the way they sold it made sense. “In Islam women are too sacred to talk to in this holy place, because we men are dirty and we cannot have impure thoughts in a place of worship.” Makes sense on the face of it, but that’s a way to not make you realize they just wanted them out of the conversations. The women had their own conversations, but my wife told me it was philosophy for about 15 minutes then talking about raising their families for the rest of the time. Where as the men would talk about the finer points of the Qur’an for 1 sometimes 2 hours.

*******************
That’s also the practice in orthodox Jewish synagogues, traditional Eastern orthodox churches and some fundamentalist Christian churches. As for not being able to talk to your fiance, don’t forget that St. Paul directed women to be silent in church. Some denominations take that instruction more seriously than others.

Of course, such conservative practices aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially those who grew up in more informal church settings, or aren’t used to church at all. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for them, or that it’s a bad religion overall.

Getting weird looks is one thing, I have had worst. I don’t really care about that, I care about the part where you tell them that you need more time and then they pretty much freeze you out. That is a study I would like to finance.

That is of course a lame excuse for the women not talking to you and whatever. If it is your woman you should be able to talk to her. If it is another woman, what happened to self-control? What I heard is “we as muslim men think of sex all the time and have no self control.” Weak.

******************
Do you also “hear” that Orthodox Jewish, Eastern Orthodox, Amish and Mennonite men “think of sex all the time and have no self control”? Because these religions and denominations also have a tradition of separating women from men.

In conservative Amish and Mennonite churches, as well as more conservative Catholic and Episcopal churches, people aren’t expected to chat with each other before or during the service. Not because they’re cold or unfriendly, but because, in those denominations, members of the congregation are expected to show reverence to God when in His presence.

Sounds to me as if you have a very narrow idea of how worship services should be conducted, and are rather judgmental toward those who don’t do things the way you expect.

The burka is frequently referred t by the perjorative “body bag.” Interesting that the first thing that came to YOUR mind was a death threat.

How odd. I’ve never heard of a burqa being referred to as a “body bag.” It doesn’t even look like a body bag. But, then again, I don’t spend a lot of time around people who ridicule other people’s religious and cultural traditions.

Production has fallen to record lows **************** Could I see your source for that claim? **************** while US exports went up to new record levels, while many people don’t drive anywhere much at all anymore because the price of fuel is so high that travelling is limited to only absolute necessities. That’s just wrong. ***************** First, that’s not really true, at least in my area of the country. The roads are just about as congested as they always are, and I see as many gas guzzlers on the road as we saw ten years ago. And, second, no, that’s not “wrong.” There’s no constitutional right to cheap gas, so, if the cost of gas becomes prohibitive, the responsible thing to do is come up with ways of reducing fuel consumption. You guys hooted at me for owning a Smartcar, but it’s certainly one way of beating the higher costs of gasoline. I do think it’s kind of amusing the way you complain that it’s “just wrong” not to be able to afford gasoline….when you showed so little concern about poor Americans not being able to afford to commute long distances to a job. Which is it going to be—-are high… Read more »

The argument that the global market dictates the price is misleading, since it never addresses how shipping costs add to the price of oil the US exports, as well as the enormous effect increasing the domestic supply would have. Increasing the supply would ‘necessarily’ reduce the price, and he cannot allow that!
*******************
Not really true. The U.S. supply of oil is less than 2% of the total world supply, so even if we were to drill aggressively, it wouldn’t make much (if any) difference to the worldwide oil market.

A statement on the sad condition of the country and the depth to which the anti-freedom movement of the progressives that anyone would even have to say that. Imagine increases in workforce, their output and market supply from the US citizenry enjoying $1.50 gallon gasoline. Hell, the outrageous insurance rates wouldn’t even matter too much anymore!

An uninsured illegal cost my insurance company nearly $3,000 dollars when he rammed the side of my truck with his car, nearly killing my girlfriend. What did the Highway Patrol do? Wrote him a ticket.

As I already pointed out, oil prices are determined by the global market. Oil companies, like any other business, want top dollar for their product, and they’re not going to hand it out at bargain rates back home, just because people like you want to drive a gas guzzler without having to pay much to fill the tank.

Not really true. The price of crude oil is determined by world market prices, and the U.S. doesn’t have big enough oil deposits to make much of a difference there. And, after all, that (as is typical with the far right) would only delay the inevitable. We need to focus on DEMANDING less fossil fuel, rather than just looking for quick and easy ways of getting bargains at the gas pump.

Wrong again! If the oil isn’t placed on the world market, then the price would be determined by cost of acquisition and desired profit.
Since we are trying to be energy independant, we would be like Chavez. He charges his people what it really costs to produce the oil, and sells the rest to others at market prices.
The fewer middlemen, the lower the price. When it goes directly from producer to consumer, it costs less. Basic economics that elude you.

While the global market influences the prices, domestic refining and transportation, among other things, makes it profitable to sell here without additional costs associated with exportation, as long as the government allows it, of course.

Because they only make pennies on the gallon now. The government is the single biggest profiteer when it comes to fuel.
If we do start producing enough of our own fuel to drive the price down, look for the government to raise fuel taxes.

No, it’s the gas station owners, not oil companies, who make pennies on the gallon, Poopajoe.

In fact, oil company profits are much greater today than they were a few years ago. What’s more, oil companies are using their own profits to repurchase their own stock, thereby driving up profits still more. (Even if you don’t agree with the editorial here, take a look at the graphs:
http://thinkprogress.org/romm/2012/02/08/421061/big-oil-higher-prices-record-profits-less-oil/)

It’s very naive of you to suppose that oil companies are struggling along, and that it’s Big Bad Obama who’s driving up the price of gas. No multibillion dollar industry gets to BE a multibillion dollar industry by eschewing profit potential, in favor of being nice guys to consumers.

However, they have lots of other income streams so their overall revenues are high. So are their risks and expenses. More domestic production should influence global spot prices because supply will be added without a correlating spike in demand. On the other hand, OPEC and other suppliers may roll back their production if we were to get to that 9 million barrels per day rate we had 40 years ago. That figure represents about 10% of global daily usage. A huge amount compared to the 4%-5% we now produce. The government is indeed the biggest profiteer of gasoline sales. The federal government alone takes $.184 per gallon. Tack on state and local taxes and it is likely that you are paying $.35 or more in additional taxes. Some argue that we only have 2.5% of the world’s proven reserves. True but the potential for undiscovered oil is huge on and off shore and the new fracking technologies promise far more potential for new supply. Also 2.5% of a lot is a lot, if you take my meaning. The world is not going to run out… Read more »

Yes, I researched this quite a while ago. At that time the government was getting about 53 cents a gallon in tax revenue and Exxon was making 8 cents. The retailers were making between 2 and 5 cents a gallon.
Regardless of who you get the info from, the numbers are pretty much the same, unless a lying, leftard website like thinkprogress is telling the story, then you can count on some of the most outrageous lies ever told.

Back to the subject at hand (thanks for blowing up the thread on something irrelevant to the story Olivia.) The woman in the tape sounds like an American Black. WSO why does she refer to the “west” like whe isn’t part of it. THe only point she made (which was evne then partly erroneous) was that some Mormons are being allowed to practice polygyny, which is supposedly illegal in the US. WHY are we not prosecuting these people? The larger Mormon church gave up polygyny over a century ago, so its not really “religious belief” its just personal preference. And any other guy who tried to marry 3-4 women wouldbe in a legal world of trouble.

Meanwhile, the right is defending these companies, and blaming Obama for high gasoline prices. Apparently they think that taxing gasoline sales is some brand new phenomenon dreamed up by Obama, and that public highways and bridges magically build and maintain themselves. __UPDATE: FactCheck.org examined the claim that ExxonMobil earns just 7 cents on a gallon of gas and concluded that “the 7-cents-per-gallon figure grossly underestimates the industry’s earnings. It includes only earnings from the sale of gasoline and not earnings on producing and selling crude oil. There are no independent figures on how much oil companies earn on a gallon of gasoline.” FactCheck.org further wrote: We called ExxonMobil and asked how Cohen arrived at his figure. Spokeswoman Kristen Hellmer said it was determined by dividing ExxonMobil’s “downstream earnings ($694 million) by the number of gallons of gasoline and other products refined and sold during the quarter in the U.S. (9,355 million gallons).
