And for centuries the Catholic Church blamed the Jews for killing Jesus. They just can't win.

Apologies to my fellow posters who are Jewish. Church teachings have been amended and they now teach that it wasn't your people - it was my people. Not that my ancestors were Roman, but close enough.

Ha! Not their style, but if they were to ask for reparations, I'd make a sign saying, "This way to the Vatican!"

Actually, it is. And as a result, some crimes have been down-graded so as to not trip the deportation clause!

No one is saying that the criminals are not criminals, but we are wondering if the "victims" are really as brain-dead as they appear, or if they have some kind of weird agenda.

Since when? The WHOLE POINT of universal sufferage is that everyone supposedly is capable of, and willing to research and understand the issues, and vote in their own self-interest. If voters are incapable of understanding the issues, maybe we should rethink the whole idea of "democracy"!

Young girls are being grabbed and groped in swimming pools, on trains and in the street in the middle of the day. Crowds are sexually assaulting them at night.

Would you suggest they stay indoors and only go out when a man can accompany them?

And what makes you think the victims are brain dead? It seems to me the ones questioning them are in that category.

Pathetic. What these women need is weapons. No I did not say guns, but a nice sharp small knife would suffice. Maybe brass knuckles.
How about the women carry pepper spray and tasers? What is a woman's purse for, anyway?
