    Karl Rove's 11th Hour Grand Jury Appearance

    Hardly. Indictment: An accusation in writing found and issued by a grand jury, charging that a person named has done some act, or is guilty of some omission, which by law is a crime. www.msm.com.au/glossary/ While it is not a conviction it is a serious issue for an administration who first...

    Intimidation? Violation of Student's Bill of Rights?

    Perceived is a precarious word here. Percieved by whom? Are you saying that the walmart employee getting bent out of shape by a photo makes it a crime? I'm not an expert in the law but I'm pretty sure that it is a credible threat, not a percived one.

    Intimidation? Violation of Student's Bill of Rights?

    The secret service is obligated to take threats to the president seriously. Here it looks like someone felt a threat was made and it was investigated and dismissed. Juding from the information provided (which could be a tad biased) they were perhaps heavy-handed in their investigation but no...

    Should Muslims be permitted to enter the United States

    What you are arguing for here is different that not letting Muslims in the country. Gathering intelligence, identifying those invovled in extremist organizations and working to keep them out of the country is a much different argument than banning muslims. I also think that devoting energy to...

    Who are worse... Hardline Americans or Hardline Muslims ?

    You accussed the question of being posed to elicity anti-american flames but now you are saying that it is a clever attempt to make single poster look like a "raving lunatic". I understand your distrust of a question that you see as an attack against and individual. Out of curiosity, how...

    Should Muslims be permitted to enter the United States

    What you are doing here is engaging in a straw argument. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man_argument As has been mentioned, they are supporting the right of an organization that doesn't advocate the breaking of any law to exist, not promoting the views of that organization. To go from...

    Who are worse... Hardline Americans or Hardline Muslims ?

    I think that the question raises a valid point. Nothing wrong with honest reflection is there. If we (collective US) have a thriving extremist population isn't that something that we should give some attention to as we denounce radical islam?

    Should Muslims be permitted to enter the United States

    Ok, so ethnically arab visitors to the US should be turned back at the border. I understand your sentiment but disagree with it. How will "ethnicity" be determined? Are you talking the passport that the person carries? Just thier look? The fact is that such an action will not protect the US...

    story on israeli withdrawal

    Does it matter? I can see how my post might seem biased if I were a muslim but no more so than a muslim would see a debate among christians regarding islam. At any rate, since you are curious. I work in a US curriculum school system that is set up to provide a US education to expatriates in...

    story on israeli withdrawal

    I see, you meant that India and Indonesia have a lot of muslims even though you said that they had the majority. Just sematics. I disagree that there have been no efforts in the middle east among moderate muslims to project the postive side of their religion. And, at any rate, there is no...

    Should Evolution Be Taught In Schools?

    Evolution is the basis of modern biology, there is overwhelming consensus for this at the University level. Creationism or Intelligent design are not science. They do not present testable hypothesis. If one wants to teach them in school that is fine but teach them in religion class and be...

    story on israeli withdrawal

    Indonesia is the largest muslim country by population but the majority of world muslims don't live in Indonesia and India. Simply not true. Also, extremism is a problem in Indonesia no different from other muslim countries. Moderate muslims are, in fact, horrified at those who commit...

    Should Muslims be permitted to enter the United States

    Out of curiosity, how exactly would one tell whether someone is a muslim at the border? Or are we talking about those who are ethnically arab? If muslims shouldn't be allowed in the country does that mean the millions of muslims with US citizenship should be stripped of thier citizenship...
