Time to kill an infidel for Allah!

November 27, 2008

Am I missing something or has not one Muslim country or leader denounced the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.  Well, this goes along with the concept that any non-Muslim is an infidel and worthy of being killed in the name of Allah.  Supposedly the Koran doesn’t say this, but all the overt actions by Muslim terrorists imply otherwise.  Any Muslim wonder why non-Muslims say, let Muslims go back to a Muslim country and pretend it is still 900.  Where are all the voices of “moderate” Muslims?  Do they even exist?  One sometimes wonders.  The last place I would ever go is to a Muslim country.  I’m not suicidal.

I protect my right to be a Catholic by preserving your right to believe as a Jew, a Protestant, or non-believer, or as anything else you choose. We know that the price of seeking to force our beliefs on others is that they might some day force theirs on us. -Mario Cuomo, 52nd Governor of New York (b. 1932)

Stupidity = Baseball

I was just reading how the baseball owners are supposedly going to vote for an investment broker [Look at the economy to see how well these spherical anal sphincter muscles run things.] to buy the Cubs [and insure a losing team] over Mark Cuban who expects his teams to win and will back that with money to get the players needed.  Another reason to dismantle the way things are done in MLB.  Weel, one of the owners is also  the commissioner.  Can you say conflict ofinterest?

Cubs, not so loveable losers.

I just finished up reading WRIGLEYVILLE by Peter Golenbock.  It is an entertaining history of the Chicago Cubs.  As a long time suffering Cub fan it I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It is very interesting just how much of baseball is associated with the Cubs.  The book may also have given rise to additional insanity on my part.  Not that I would ever do anything crazy or unusual.    As I’ve noted before, only when I’m given the opportunity to buy tickets to the next Cubs World Series will they get there.  I would like closure.
