"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

In 1791 the new United States passed the 1st Amendment to the Constitution, but apparently nowadays people who claim to support our Constitution, no longer truly hold religious freedom to be worth preserving, if it isn't their religion.

No wonder the opposition has so little difficulty branding some conservatives as whackos.

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

Sorry but they don't.  The "religion" is but one layer of the Islam onion.  It is a culture.  It is political.  It is theological.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

So is every other religion. Each also contains elaborate social codes, cultural expectations and political positions.

Padua is famed for it's particularly stubborn citizens - Livy wrote about them around the time of Our Lord's birth and they've only gotten more ivory skulled since then.

Sig. Bitonci seems to be angling for a higher position in the Northern League - they are the separatist movement in Northern Italy, who want to break away back to the more homogenous 5 Duchys. Though how they are planning to get Savoy back from France is a mystery.

When you see something like this, always look for motivation.

On a personal note - it's great to see you posting more! Missed your wit and insight!  :beer:
