Time Magazine: Does the Constitution Still Matter?

Does Time Magazine still matter?


The Glenn Beck Program, June 23 LIVEBLOG (Rick Santorum)

Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program.  Good news!  Come here. [Motions at the camera.]  Come here.  This is the last show Erin's doing with me.  [Hugs Erin.]  No, that's actually really sad news.

Caliphate: Hizb ut-Tahrir

Hizb ut-Tahrir is an international pan-Islamic political group with the goal of uniting a Muslim countries intro a caliphate.

They are planning a conference in July in the U.K., and I believe they have already held a conference in the U.S.  I'm still researching about the U.S. conference, but here's a link to the trailer for the U.K. one.

I went to the organization's website.  It had options to view it in different languages.
I opened both the English and Arab options.  For the Arab page, I used the Google Chrome option to translate the page from Arabic to English.  (Note: Text is translated.  Text within graphics, as shown in this pic, cannot be translated in this manner.)

Here are some shots of the English and translated-from-Arabic texts, side by side.  (Click to enlarge.)

Facebook continues to piss me off...

This status update is polluting my Facebook wall.

Oops, wrong button!  I meant to say
Remember when teachers, public employees, Planned Parenthood, NPR and PBS crashed the stock market, wiped out half of our 401ks, took trillions in tax payer funded bailouts, spilled oil in the Gulf of Mexico, gave themselves billions in bonuses and paid no taxes? Yeah. Me neither. Pass it on.
