Something of a "have to be" to keep oil flowing. The Bush family,
though, seems to consider the Saudi monarchy (if that's what it is)
Amazing how the opinion flows, but the facts are unknown. Not that they
should interfere, of course....

Can you 'splain that to me so you don't sound like a racist idiot?
I haven't been reading the thread, just figured I'dcheck why
someone is slurring Leon. Simple enough, Muslim is a religion, not a
race. Cancel Leon as idiot of the day.
10 Out Of 10 Terrorists Prefer Hillary For President - Bumper Sticker
I do not have a problem with a woman president - except for Hillary.
Some minimum wage luddite who probably has already risen to his/her
level of incompetence makes a tasteless but otherwise fairly innocuous
one-liner joke, and next thing we know the Council on American-Islamic
Relations and the vice president of one of the biggest companies in the
world are involved? Yeah, the cashier should have kept his/her piehole
shut. But, how did the big muckety-micks even learn of it unless the
shopper totally blew it all out of proportion? Who's the most
insensitive, the cashier, or the butt of the joke?
My common since says to shut my mouth but oh
well here it goes. First people in this country
blamed the Indians for their problems. Then the
Germans then the Irish then the Italians then the
Jewish then the Blacks then the Asians then the
Mexicans, well some still blame the Blacks and
Mexicans, now it's the Muslims. When will fools
quit blaming races or religions for moronic
behavior and start blaming the individuals. Now
here is an original thought lets stick with
woodworking in this woodworking news group and
take your juvenile prejudice to a news group
better suited to the purpose.
If *I* were to wear a veil, and cover my face as I approached a
cashier, I sure as hell would get taken down. And if *I* can't wear a
veil, then neither should anybody else.
And if *I* have to wear a helmet on my bike, the fact that I have a
turbin on my head should not excuse me from wearing a helmet.
We all make choices. If people chose to live in North America they
My apologies for forgetting about the OT.
Now, was there a woodworking question in that little rant of yours?

Usually, if a comment starts with something like "My common
since says to shut my mouth but oh well here it goes" what
happens next is not worth reading...
Yours is the exception, and you have my admiration for
All the best,
I confess, when I was younger and lived in a city with only a sprinkle of
minorities except for Mexican Americans, I too wondered what all the fuss
was about. Then I moved to Houston 34 years ago and that is when my
perception changed. Remember I started out thinking, what's the problem.
I continue to judge an individual that I meet with a clean slate. I draw
the line when laws are broken and unfortunately some nationalities tend to
break the law more often than others. This casts a bad light on the group
as a whole when you seldom hear anything good about a particular race.
Houston is a very diverse group of races. Predominately, Mexican, Black,
White, Asian, and Middle Easterners.
With out a doubt the race that complains the least, tries the hardest to fit
in, and the one that you do not see as often on the news involved in a
crime, are the Asians. When they first started arriving in numbers there
was resentment towards them for a very brief period of time however they
have earned respect and IMHO are some of the best neighbors.
Most all the other minorities in Houston want to take back Texas,
reparations, or be exempt from our laws.
And then there are those, "all races", that want to remove "God in public
places and Government buildings, from all of our lives.
