Poker Tells

I play poker.

Poker is the most frustrating, aggravating, stimulating, boring, anger inducing, laughter making, brain exercise that exists.

The only thing even close is politics.

We are now engaged in a global war with a variety of terrorist groups all centered around the Islamic faith. It is silly for the Lefties and other dummies to attack Trump for him exercising his free speech rights about stopping Muslim immigration until we sort things out. I'd make it forever.

Am I the only person who remembers how many newspapers would not publish the Mohammed cartoon? (Yes, that one. The one in which the supposed moderate Muslims rioted and killed because he was insulted?)

And the criticism that preacher in  Florida received because he threatened to burn a Koran?

Now we find that ISIS is using Trump's reasonable statements in a recruiting ad. And the Lefties are going even more nuts than usual.

Folks, self censorship is still censorship.

And that shows us just how successful Muslims have came in controlling us. In changing our society.

Now, what would it take for them to leave us alone? Would just coming home do the job? Let's review what the daddy of all this mess, Osama bin Ladin, had to say to Peter Arnett, then with CNN, in this March '97 interview.

REPORTER: Mr. Bin Ladin, will the end of the United States' presence in Saudi Arabia, their withdrawal, will that end your call for jihad against the United States and against the US ?

BIN LADIN:....So, the driving-away jihad against the US does not stop with its withdrawal from the Arabian peninsula, but rather it must desist from aggressive intervention against Muslims in the whole world.


In case you are geography challenged.....America is in the "whole world."

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

 “It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine
