Islam is anti-everything but Islam, so, it's only fair

That's not true. Several of my comments about Islam have been deleted by mods on this thread.

There's plenty of free speech on this board.

In fact, you are totally free to show that you don't understand what free speech is

As someone who studied law, I must explain to you that there is either free speech or there is no free speech. If free speech exists on this board, then I can express a vocal attack towards you without it being moderated out. We both know that is not true. Thus there is no free speech on this board.

"Plenty of free speech" indicates that there are more than two states of free speech. This is incorrect.

Currently only two major cultures are not submissive to the West/US.

One is the Islam world, the other is China. Neither of them believes in democracy, absolute equality etc.
However, the Islam world is religious, so they react "fiercely" to western domination. China is materialist/atheist, so they just do business and do not argue with the west.

other than these two, Japan, India, Eastern Europe have already surrendered to the west.

Because of 911, the recent bomb attack on the marathon, and world affairs, I think it is time to take drasatic steps to protect our nation. Bring our troops from the other side of the world home, keep our money here. Let the other side of the world fight their own battles, pay for their military weapons, etc. I think America needs to make all non-citizens (from all countries) leave the United States (for our protection). Our miltary could be utilized patroling the streets. These are very dangerous times -- it would not bother me at all (senior citizen born and raised in the USA) to have officers watch me out in public or to be stopped on the street to check citizenship, answer questions-- it is worth it to make our country safe.

America gives physican postiions to Asians, Muslims, etc. I worked with them, very nice people they were. BUT a lot of Americans graduating from medical schools cannot get a job, yet we give the jobs to foreigners. Also, the illegals (& I knew some of them, all good people wanting to live a good life as we do) are taking the lower paying jobs away from Americans. The people collecting unemploymen, welfare, etc. should be made to take those jobs (if able to physically) and their earnings deducted from their government subsidy.

And... we need to put God back in our government, in our schools, in our daily lives!

As mortals we don't really have the ability to put any gods anywhere.

Would putting a muezzin in our schools suffice?
