Why is that most people do not understand, or even comprehend the problem with radical Islam?

If you go back in history about 1,200 years ( to 800 AD or so) you would find that Arabian mathematicians, philosophers, astrnomers and poets had produced many, many creative ideas. But what have they done since? Nothing.

The only scientists produced by the Islamic countries are all in the US. They don't want to go back where their research would be subjagated to fundamentalist Islamic law.

The rulers of these areas look around and what do they find? They have oil, which brings wealth, but not respect. They realize they are falling behind. Even India, which they despise, produces much more scientific work than all of the Islamic countries.

But, then, what can you expect from an area that ignores over 50% of their brain-power? They want their women to be veiled, fully covered in public, and to stay at home and have babies.

Their men can't compete with the rest of the world. They are too busy blowing themselves up.
Any country or region that considers memorizing the Koran as the epitome of education is doomed to eventual failure.

What we need to do is to seek out and kill all the hotheads now, and let the rest rot on the vine.

I'm back!

For better or worse, I can now return to my blog. A long bout of poor health has kept me off the airways. I'm now again ready to give The Resident Curmudgeon's view on about everything.

Is there anything dumber than the continuing posturing about stem cell research? I absolutely cannot understand the fundamentalist's position. Why is it OK to "discard" (that means do away with, or destroy them or trash them or whatever) embryos created in a fertility clinic, but not to destroy embryos created for stem cell research? In the one case it is OK, but in the other case it is abortion. BALDERDASH! Such embryos are no invivo, and in no way are human organisms at that stage.

More and more I am convinced our President is a total dunce, and should return to Texas where he can have tea with Molly Ivins, and try to raise cattle. He hasn't done anything else right.
