Islam – Reasonable?

So a crazy “Christian” from Florida threatens to burn some Korans and doesn’t but the Muslim world loses their minds and riots in certain parts of the world? What in the hell am I missing? How in the hell is this peaceful?

Threatening to do something is not the same as doing something. I believe this to be a reasonable statement. What I can’t for the life of me understand is how the threat to do something is the same as doing it. The whack job known as Pastor Jones threatened to burn Korans and didn’t yet many Muslims are acting as if he actually did it!

Many Muslims in Kashmir lost their freaking minds resulting in the death of 18 while over 100 were killed over the threat of burning Koran’s. Could you imagine a person that happens to be Jewish threaten to burn copies of the Bible and the result being a bunch of Christians riot are start attacking Synagogues? It seems ludicrous but this is exactly what many Muslims in Kashmir and Afghanistan did! Christians are evil and death to the United States over the threat of doing something by one person? This is not only absurd but realistically retarded!

Now if Islam is such a religion of peace, where in the hell are the peaceful Muslims calling their brothers and sisters to stop acting like retards? What I cannot for the life of me understand is why Muslims lose their minds over the most absurd things including cartoons, Nike sneakers and jeans but do not speak up and condemn the acts of others in who share their faith. It seems to be that Muslims are slaves to radical Muslims which doesn’t make sense to me as the radicals are supposed to be small minority.

Can you imagine a someone claiming to be a Christian killing another person in the name of God and not having other Christians speak up and say that that person is wrong and is not a Christian? So I ask the question, if Islam is misunderstood and is truly a religion of peace why don’t more Muslims speak out against atrocities? Why don’t more Muslims lose their minds over real issues like beheading little girls on their way to school?

Crooked Politicians Get To Keep Their Pensions!

I came across an article in the New York Daily News that left my blood boiling. There are 10 ex politicians that are receiving pensions from New York State! This is absurd to say the least.

All of these politicians have been convicted and booted from office yet get to keep their pensions. To make matters worse they’re constitutionally protected from having losing their pensions. Luckily, Senator Craig Johnson is sponsoring legislation that would grant the attorney general and district attorneys the power to eliminate the pensions of crooked politicians.

Think of how absurd that the crooked politicians get to keep their pensions is. Say you own a company and you provide pensions for your workers. One of your workers is caught stealing funds from your company and is convicted. You still have to pay the worker his pension!

At the end of the day it’s not the state that is paying the pensions to these crooks. It us who live, work and are taxed in New York. I don’t want my tax dollars paying for these schmucks. Do you? It will be interesting to see if the proposed legislation is passed. I don’t think it will but will be more than pleased if I’m wrong.
