Well, George in New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles Hispanics replaced blacks and have a lower crime rate. Another reason why both parties are pushing the Hispanic bandwagon. However, in former white cities like Cicero Il crime has went up since 2nd generation Hispanic have higher crime rates than whites.

Well, Paul like Romney doesn’t want to deal with the illegal immigration problem neither nor do the democratic on the other side, Paul is influence by Cato. Cato is against e-verify since Employers should not be made to use e-verify according to libertarians. Romney is being pushed by the Bushes and the Chamber of Commerce. Romney who is talking about people not paying taxes, well illegal immigrants use the TIC and claim children on it, and most of the time illegal immigrants don’t pay federal taxes, in states like California where they are 2.6 million and Texas where they are 1.6 million this adds up but the Bushes wanted Romney to court the Hispanics and Romney can not mention that a lot of folks that you the earned income are illegality here. Some Republicans like Jeff Sessions are trying to changed the rules on the TIC so illegal immigrants can not claim children and get earned income tax credits.

Well, one of the worst regimes for torture is North Korea. The christians there are more likely protestant than Orthodox but I heard that a lot of people were sent to camps or killed. Some make it into China which is not as worst as North Korea. Most are unable to make into South Korea since that is cutoff a lot of troops manning the border between the two countries.

Well, I heard about what happen to the Serbs in World War Ii. Now I was unaware of the Cardnal and that John Paul II thought to make him a saint. Still, John Paul ii at least helped the movement against the communists, I know when he was in Poland he had to be careful. The Nazis caused a horrbile war over 20 million but I think the communists were able to do more damage since their politcal philosophy sounded more ideal. Maybe 60 million were killed by the communists regimes, that is one of the high figures, people can debate it if they like.

Well, I agree that in the way the south rose again because housing is cheaper than the northeast. A lot of blacks have moved back to Georgia. Gwinnett County has a lot of blacks, asians, and Hispanics, it 27 percenr foreign born and defies the sterotype of the South white versus Black. When I was 12 California use to attract midwesterners but most now go to places like Texas. Orthodox are mainly in places like Chicago or the Pittsburgh area a different type of culture, the south is the heart of Protestantism unlike even states like Texas which has a lot of Catholics because of the Mexican population or Louisanna with the French background Roman Catholics.

Actually, I think Byzantine Emperors did better than had singing birds and roaming lions in their throne room.

Isa lives in Chicago certainly can verify reports of corruption and ties to radicals that Paul Kengor and Stanley Kutz wrote about.

Well, I thought that Loyola was Basque, another group that seems to be in Western Europe earlier.

George, the white supremacists types are into two groups, those that are crazy and are violent and those that want to relocate sometimes to the non-coastal parts of the Northwest like Or, Wa, Id. Many of those of the non-violent type are agnostic and some are evangelical Christians and some are into neo-paganism like the woden groups-Norse gods are the more conservative types or white nationalists of the neo-pagan movement.. Black supremacists like white supremacists or white nationalist can be non-violent. Rev Wright doesn’t have to favor using arms to overthrow the current system but politics.

Well high margin rates were pretty much income that were not really tax at 70 percent or 90 percent. A lot of it was put into trust funds and offshore investing. There are a lot less rich people than people in the middle or poorer, so to generate income you need to reduce the earned income tax credit which doesn’t always go to people here legality. Europe has both progressive and regressive taxes and the regressive taxes like the VAT probably collect more money that helps the poor more since their is more money available to finance things..

Well, George is right class hatred can be bad as well. The Occupy War Street movement has an anarchists element which is more rowdy than the average Occupy War Street and they Vandalized and smash small business not the property of multimillionaires or billionaires. Stalin considered the Kuliks rich and had the in labor camps where they died.

Well, I can see a Jew in Israel spitting on a christian but not in the United States, Jews here I have known are usually not hostile to Christians some get overly defensive as George mention because of the Holocaust.

Gibbon thought that Christianity was at fault for making people in the Empire less likely to defend themselves he blame the last rulers of the west and the east for this. Zosimus I believe the last Pagan Historian had this view as well in the late 5th or early 6th century. Basically he thought the East had too many Eastern traits like being somewhat cowardly or double dealing. Its true modern Historians that study the Eastern Empire mention how it was able to changed into a late Antiquity civilization to a medieval one with a great deal of success for a 1000 years. Three of the greatest building projects were in late Roman Empire, Valens Aqueduct, the Theodosian Walls-land and sea and Hagia Sophia number 3. Gibbon didn’t get to visit Constantinople and he commented that the forts of the Byzantines were small, some were but others were not. Archaeologically was not available in his day but he read several ancient and medieval sources and most enlightened people of the 18th century didn’t think highly of the east.

Well, I can only think of two poor performing school systems, middle size or larger cities that are Red and that’s Bakersfield Ca and Anaheim Ca, granted the more native born white population votes more than the minority which in the case of Anaheim tends to be foreign born. The bad Texas schools are Houston heavily Hispanic and around 20 percent black a blue town, Dallas heavily Hispanic also over 40 percent of the population and around 16 percent black, Austin student population probably over 40 percent Mexican and a blue town, and El Paso around 80 percent Hispanic and probably near 90 percent among the student body also Democratic.

My comment a lot of people that lost houses were not poor. In fact, Ladera Ranch an upper-middle class community in Orange County where houses were selling now the million mark average income is 90,000 or higher. Many of these folks knew they couldn’t afford the houses but brought he houses anyway and also took out loans for cars they couldn’t afford on top of the houses. So, not all the people who lost houses were lower middle class minorities that acorn pushed banks to lend money but many were also upper middle class people that signed agreements and therefore were not victims of the banks but victims of wanting to live a certain lifestyle. So the cry that only rich people are to blame is not true there are slightly rich people, middle class and lower middle class people that are also to blame for the housing mess.

I mean Harry Truman.

Well, I agree about the remark of Obama wanting to go on Letterman than discuss political matters with foreign heads of state. Obama’s friend as a teen was the strange William Marshall Davis who at one time thought Henry Truman was more evil than Joseph Stalin., maybe Obama feels that way about the Republicans while Clinton as mention above will work with them. Granted, i think Obama is not the radical of his youth but doesn’t always want to attend to matters of state.

Remove my last two statements

Well, i think a lot of Northern California was not Mexican.. I feel that Mexicans have a better deal than Greeks or Italians and so forth immigrating there are probably some illegal immirgant Greeks but its harder for them since they have to have the right vistas to go to Germany and so forth for work. The Russians also have to follower paper work, granted some are illegal. Let’s change US immigration policy to include more Greeks, Russians and so forth and less Hispanics and Asians.. Currently Mexico even in legal immigration has 30 percent and China around 11 percent.

Well, the media shows Mexicans that enter illegality by boat and that can be more risky but what the media never mentions is that Mexico has the same per capita as Russia. Personality I would favor changing things fi there was a guest worker program for low skills people in eastern Europe besides the Latin Countries could quality. Mexicans and Central Americans coming illegality in a lot of markets would face job competition and more would return home. Mexico growth is 4 percent versus under 2 percent for us, granted, wages and living is harder but it would make the country deal with this. Currently the Country is living off of remittances its second to oil in income.

True Gibbon wrote in a different age and he probably was not anti-Jewish for his time period. I remember a riot in the first century in Alexandria between Greeks and Jews. The Jews after Hadrian didn’t rebel that much it was the Samaritans who rebelled against the late Roman Empire in the East that were flatten out. Many of the Samaritans in the 6th century that number in the thousands were killed and enslaved. Today they are less than a 1000. I bring this up because I wonder what happen to the Samaritans

There is some references I believe in Eusebius about Jews involved with turning Christians into the Roman government and the historaian Paul Johnson mentions persecution by both sides in his books the history of Christianity and the history of the Jews. The Jews did it more of this in the pre-Constantine era but there were some incidences after Constantine of Jewish mob violence granted there was some christian mob violent that led to syngogoues being burn. Christians made Jews and Pagans second class citizens by the time of Justinian, both Jews and Pagans couldn’t have anyone defend them in a court but were forced to testify for a christian. Not all of this was violent but the Laws by the 6th century limited the freedom of religion of the Jews they couldn’t read out loud the old testament in Hebrew but had to use other languages like Greek or Latin or other langues of the day.

Well, blacks are not the only ones with resentment against whites, Hispanics are another because of the history of the southwest. At one time Mexican kids were considered colored in states like Ca, TX, AZ for schooling granted some whites don’t like Mexicans or Central Americans because of the illegal immigration but radical Hispanic groups sometimes claim the whole US as Azlan even in States were Spain or Mexico did not have colonies. Also, a few resentments by Asian groups against whites.

Well, many western states the most people on welfare are Hispanic. Texas over 53 percent of those that use welfare are Hispanic. Part of this is a poor immigration system. I use to be against guest-worker programs for low skilled jobs but maybe the one that Texas is designing will address the current problem of a lot of illegal immigrants that stayed in the US long enough to have children and the children are on the welfare programs. Barry Goldwater back in the 1980′s opposed the IRAC Act that Legalization about 3 million people instead he wanted a guest-worker program. The current problems with guest worker programs are vista overstays. Mitt Romney could have use this to deal with immigration problems and the welfare problems. Also, the current program of having a member outside of a spouse of minor child leaves to more use of welfare since the immigrants may not have the job skills to get out of welfare.

George mentions the crusades and Jews, by the Crusades the Jews were treated terrbily I would blame this more on the west since I’m not familiar with that bad treatment in the East. However, there was bad blood between Jews and Christians for years. In the 4th Century Theodosius was going to make the church pay for a synagogoue that a christian mob burn down but Bishop Ambrose opposed using church money to rebuilt the burn down synagogue. Also, in the 6th century Jews seized control of Yemen and killed Christians.

Well, I think the economic problems of blacks and Hispanics are more complex than racism. Blacks grow up more into single families and in the west they are not the poorest. In CA, TX, AZ, NV Hispanics have the lowest incomes and the highest poverty rates. Hispanics have been a heavily immigrant group and come from rural regions of Mexico or Central America where skills for jobs are going to be low. Puerto Ricians and Cubans also had these problems as well but they are found more back east. On the other hand Cubans and South Americans immigrants tend to have higher levels of education when they come to the US as well.

Someday, Islam may develop a hide thick enough to bear the sorts of artistic depictions that Christians endure. Monty Python’s 1979 motion picture Life of Brian generated huge laughs — by satirizing Jesus Christ. While some Christians criticized or boycotted the film, they retaliated by killing exactly zero people.
Today’s Broadway hit The Book of Mormon makes The Life of Brian resemble a consistory of the College of Cardinals. While Mormons may find this musical more blasphemous than hilarious (it is both, in spades), their reviews have not been homicidal.
Artist Chris Ofili infamously attached elephant dung to his painting of the Virgin Mary. Christians objected, and a believer named Dennis Heiner splattered white paint on this canvas. But neither Ofili nor anyone else was murdered for such infantilism.
So long as free speech remains a fundamental human right, free people can and should say what they will about Islam. And until that faith’s most fervent adherents learn to count to ten before commencing carnage, one objectionable YouTube video or bothersome charcoal sketch could sever America’s vital supplies of petroleum. This is the difference between Islam and Christianity in dealing with insults to one’s religion or as mention Mormonism versus Islam.

Blue States and Counties tend to have higher housing prices and people have less children. San Fran, New York City, Hawaii, Los Angeles, have housing costs above the national average and among non-Hispanic whites in these cities tend to have lower birthrates because its expensive. Texas housing is a little cheaper than the national average so a lot of Republicans in places like California moved to Texas because of lower taxes and housing and in Texas they can afford to be in a less diverse neighborhood or where the minority population is more middle class.

Well, I thought the film in poor taste but why should the followers of Islam go and killed people over insulting their Prophet. Islam is too medieval. They did the same thing in Europe over a Cartoon and killed a flim maker in Europe that criticized them as well. Islam can act that way but if a christian acts radical and kills someone they are considered wacky. People are going to make insulting films on religion and the followers of Islam need to leave the middle ages and enter the modern world.
