And what a spectacular show it was!

The Chinese got nothing on us when it comes to fireworks.

Muslims will Never be tolerant of us,.
It is THEIR way or NO way.
There is NO in between- either you are with them or not. That is their religion.

Well, someone has to do it!

The appropriate apology to the Muslims would be to hang Bush and friends.

That apology would have meaning.
The problem is Americans are tolerant, but Muslims are not.

Policy has nothing to do with being tolerant. Americans are highly criticized for not being tolerant when it should be the other way around.

Maybe Americans are tolerant of the wrong things.

Just because you have tremendous name recognition, doesn't mean that you'll get elected.

Charlie Manson still hasn't become president.

"Policy" needs to be constitutionally directed.

Our constitution is friendly, in a healthy way, to all.

It's slime free.

These governments and their populations clearly have different interests.

If an overwhelming majority of the population in ANY nation (not just Muslim nations) are anti-American despite the position of their government, that should be taken in very serious consideration.

In the case of the Arabian Peninsula for example, i'd bet that in very strong majority numbers, the overriding sentiment is that U.S. troops should not be stationed within those borders. If that's the case, i don't really care WHY they don't want us there....that's not my business. If it's because they think we're infidels, fine. But no matter how nebulous the reason may be, i don't want to be somewhere that i'm not wanted.
That's certainly a valid perspective with some good points. Well stated.

I don't care what any of you say, tolerance is something you don't learn your either born with being tolerant or your not, no excuses why, or who was there or any other nonsense. They are who they are, and no one person is going to change their views for any purporse.

These People come from a very different mindset, and culture, what is important to many Americans surely is not to Muslims, Those poor Women, are covered from head to toe, in the hottest of days, and not respected in any way from Muslim Men, they treat their Women horribly and yes inhumane.

I watched an interview with Muslims last year or the year before about how they feel about Americans, this was for some reason just the Men. Younger Muslim Men, and i am sure all Muslims do not feel this way. I want to add that myself.

Who said it was not about FREEDOM, WRONG, The men stated that Americans have to much freedom to come and go whatever that means. The Men need to get a backbone with American Women, and that American Women have to much freedom, that the men need to put their foot down. They think that and maybe we do Americans obsess over the stupidest of things and things of non importance, which that part could be true.
They feel American Women show too much skin, have evil ways, and men should get tougher with their Women, do you agree or not.

The religion part is where i shut the tv off, they babbled too much about our Faith, and how wrong we are for the beliefs we have.

It just appears to me that whenever there is such a difference of an opinion, and Staunch Reactions Religion is involved.

Invasion or not, These People have been out to get us way before that time.

Don't care what Religion your a part of when ever Religion is carried to an extreme, Bad Things are going to Happen.
