Tootsie: Thought for the Day “Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.” ~ Voltaire (1694-1778)
TxBrand: another thought for the day ISLAM IS NOT ALLOWED IN USA! Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any "organization" that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited. Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration - 1952 McCarran Walters ACT
TxBrand: ‹@Tootsie› they are not going to rebuild that restraint in Old Town Spring... its up for sale as is .. I think your the one I was talking to about that lol
Tootsie: that act was updated in 1965 ~ as posted earlier. McCarren was aimed at subversives such as communists. Islamists as a whole do not advocate such ~ not all islamists are terrorists ~ - There are American born and those with citizenship that are in our Military, ~~ upholding the USA ~ Religion is not a basis for torrirsts ~ radicalization comes in all forms, and all religions. ~~ can't pick on just one.
Tootsie: Sad they are not rebuilding, but if they did the ghost may not appear in the new one LOL.
Tootsie: maybe in a bit LOL.
TxBrand: all islamists advocates the overthrow of our government
Tootsie: Saw this other day ~ Tayyib M. Rashid @MuslimMarine Hey @realDonaldTrump, I'm an American Muslim and I already carry a special ID badge. Where's yours? #SemperFi #USMC 12:23 PM - 19 Nov 2015 35,330 35,330 Retweets 46,517 46,517 likes
Tootsie: whatever ~ I can't judge people by what their choice or not is for religion ~
Tootsie: depends upon which site one chooses to read as to opinions. ~ I guess
Tootsie: gotta let Amber out ~ then hit grocers
TxBrand: its not a religion
TxBrand: Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any "organization" that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited
Tootsie: Well, I won;'t argue with several sources stating that it is ~~ www.religionfacts.com/isl...Islam http://www.religionfacts.com/islam
Islam is one of the largest religions in the world, with over 1 billion followers. It is a monotheistic faith based on revelations received by the Prophet Muhammad in 7th-century Saudi Arabia. The Arabic word islammeans “submission,” reflecting the faith's central tenet of submitting to the will of God.
Followers of Islam are called Muslims. According to Islamic tradition, the angel Gabriel appeared to the Prophet over the course of 20 years, revealing to him many messages from God. Muslims recognize some earlier Judeo-Christian prophets—including Moses and Jesus—as messengers of of the same true God. But in Islam, but Muhammad is the last and greatest of the prophets, whose revelations alone are pure and uncorrupted. continues in aove
TxBrand: ‹@Tootsie› are you a muslim ?
Tootsie: no, German heritage primarily, Baptist turned Catholic
TxBrand: their religion tells them to lie ...
Tootsie: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isl... ` very interesting, ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam
Tootsie: Believe what you want to, I just do not believe in trying to spread anything at all on a chat room that will hurt anyone. We have no idea who, what, relation, color, race, creed, disabled , not disabled or a multitude of other items. I DO NOT want to OFFEND anyone at all on a chat room. Be Mindful of what is stated - my motto
Tootsie: religion, not relation
Tootsie: amber need to piddle, later ~~ Have a great day all
TxBrand: You don't what to warn people of the Fact that they want to hurt us... take over our country ? Its ok for them to hurt us... we are suppose to sit back and watch it happen ?
TxBrand: www.facebook.com/EricAlle... https://www.facebook.com/EricAllenBell/videos/812261468851843/
Tootsie: This is not the venue for such a discussion ~ of course not. But I would not call all of the German population Nazis either. One can find supporting evidence of anything they want to ~ that is very easy to do.
Again, I will not try to sway or be judgemental on a chat room that is supposedly associated with Iraqi dinar/ and Iraq. Please do not try to put words in my mouth or assumptions ~ Again, one can find anything they want to on the internet, particularly social media. Anyone can spout off whatever they want to and so on.
TxBrand: ‹@Tootsie› you need to educate yourself... watch that video... then say things like that
Tootsie: Again, they are wondering why so little participation in this chat room. - heck If I went into a new chat room and saw some of what has been here in last few days I would not come back either. oh well. Tootsie: I am educated, ty kindly.
TxBrand: this happens to do with the title of the chat room
TxBrand: your saying this has nothing to do with wealth ?
TxBrand: your not educated in what Islam mean... darn you to watch this and say the same thing www.facebook.com/EricAlle...

chattels: " Why ISIL Will Fail on Its Own "
chattels: " As a movement, it’s dangerous. But as a state, it’s collapsing. Here’s how to make that work for us."
chattels: By ELI BERMAN and JACOB N. SHAPIRO November 29, 2015
chattels: wealthwatch.world/showthr... http://wealthwatch.world/showthread.php?tid=3110
chattels: Craig Whiteside @CraigAWhiteside 2h2 hours ago Craig Whiteside Retweeted Lawrence Rubin Berman and Shapiro make a great argument here that IS is doomed as an economic entity. Good news for us.
chattels: " In the accelerating public discussion of ISIL, it’s easy to become focused on what we don’t know: ........... "
chattels: Like the IQd , eh ?
chattels: " ............ ISIL is most usefully thought of as a state. Not a state with recognized borders, but an entity that needs to control territory in order to sustain its message, validate its propaganda and maintain much of its capacity.
And if it’s is a state, then the good news is that it’s an extremely weak one: geographically vulnerable, with an unsustainable resource base and a grave problem with its population. As we decide how to confront it, there are three crucial points to understand."
chattels: " Money : The first thing to recognize about ISIL is that it has an intractable funding problem."
chattels: " ........... ISIL is left with what has been revealed as its main funding source: extorting funds from the population under its control. This is standard practice for rebel groups, showing up with guns at roadblocks and businesses and demanding payment or confiscating goods.
But extortion, too, is unsustainable as the most productive residents flee, taking their capital with them (both human and physical), inflation erodes the value of taxes that are collected and people exposed to excessive taxation stop investing in productive activities."
chattels: " People : ................. the group has suffered massive departures from its territory, so many that its propaganda machine has taken to attacking those who leave."
chattels: " ............ the people attracted by ISIL’s global recruiting drive amount to an army of fighters—low-skilled ideologues, for the most part, rather than the engineers, administrators and entrepreneurs that an economy would require to thrive, at least to judge from published reports."
chattels: " Regime competence : Even absent attrition, ISIL would be doomed as a state."
chattels: " It is impossible to predict how long it will take for the state’s economy to collapse, but the collapse over time is certain."
chattels: " As the Soviet Union was to communism, so ISIL is to jihadism: the purest articulation of a noxious ideology of governance, which incidentally has little connection to Islam. If we allow it to fail, then it will be clearly a failure of ISIL as an idea. The same is not true of a military defeat at the hands of Western forces.
Given its deep structural weaknesses and its symbolic value in the global war of ideas, our best strategy is almost surely one based on containment, allowing the group’s motivating ideology to destroy the group from the inside—and thus more rapidly find its proper place in the dustbin of history."
chattels: " Knowing all that, and thinking of ISIL as a state, implies that “containment plus” indeed makes sense. We’re fighting a failed state in the making, one that will implode if merely contained, and will collapse even faster under coordinated economic and military pressure from its neighbors. Granted, this view of ISIL as eventually doomed does not treat the urgent threats it poses, both in the Middle East and in the West. "
chattels: Good news for us.
