Romney Wins Florida, Election Goes on Despite Establishment Wishes

By Tony Katz

 

While former Governor Mitt Romney sailed to victory in the Florida Primary with a comfortable 46% of the vote, he has a long way to go to secure the nomination. This has the “establishment” up in arms, as they are woefully too eager to close out this process, disenfranchise the people, and force their concept of electability on America. However, Romney the “electable,” at least in Florida, is not the same as Romney the inevitable. No matter how loudly the establishment will claim that Romney’s win in Florida means that he is the nominee, that hasn’t been established at all. [more...]

 

 

The Dilemma of Honor Killing in Islam – Honoring the Family Name by Dishonoring their Women

By Al Fadi

 

Islam prides itself on the fact that one of its hallmarks is bringing honor to women by way of protecting her beauty via the wearing of Hijab, providing for her needs through marriage, and respecting her freedom by sheltering her from the outside world. To Islam, women are not meant to be in public, or to have freedom of choice, nor expression, nor any type of rights that can cause her guardian to lose his control over her [yes, the use of the masculine is intentional].

 

The Quran claims that women are the source of evil, they are like a sexual field for men to tilt and plant seeds; and it is filled with a host of other verses where women are clearly degraded and humiliated in a book considered to be holy and spoken by Allah (the god of Islam) himself. 

 

In light of the honor killing victims: Jessica Mokdad (Michigan), Tater Harun (Germany), and Noor Almaleki (Arizona) to name a few, not to mention the alleged mass murder of three of the Shafia daughters by their father, mother and brother (Ontario, Canada), one can only wrestle with one huge dilemma that demands an answer: How can Islam bring honor to women when it tolerates dishonoring them for being westernized or at the least for seeking freedom to express their god given gifts and rights?  [more...]

 

 

Why Community Activists Shouldn’t Run the U.S. Economy

By Wayne Allyn Root

 

I’ve never been a community activist.  And, I’ve never been to a protest, let alone organized one. I’ve been too busy working. I’ve never been in a union. So should I take over as CEO of the biggest union in America? Would you think I’m qualified to run the Teamsters or SEIU? Why would I be so bad for these jobs?  Because I have no relevant experience. How can you name someone with no experience in the field as CEO? How utterly ridiculous. So, can someone please explain to me why we elected Barack Obama to run the U.S. economy? [more...]
