“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

What does it take to send a fool to blow himself up in a hospital?

A deadly car bomb has hit a hospital in Afghanistan's eastern Logar province, with women, children and elderly among the casualties.
The provincial health director told the BBC that 27 people had died and 53 were hurt, adding the toll could have been higher as many people took away the bodies of relatives.
The facility was destroyed and people were buried under rubble.


  1. Betcha every one of the casualties were Muslims.

    Any takers?

  2. the USA IS a Christian nation, founded on Christian principles. Show me in the Constitution where it says it is not.

  3. .

    What does it take to send a fool to blow himself up in a hospital?

    Step 1:

    Find yourself a fool.


  4. Unfortunately, step 1 is really easy in Afghanistan.

  5. Actually, you'd have a better shot arguing the United States was founded on Slavery. It IS in the Constitution.

  6. Animals. Not primitive people- primates.

  7. Solar Powered Computer from Samsung

    $399.00 Coming in July.

    14 hr battery.

    It just gets "cooler, and cooler."

  8. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,

    Muslims, Jews, Buddhists and Satanists are welcome in the United States, along with Christians.

    There shall be no national religion, as proclaimed in the Constitution of the United States.

  9. Religion, in the United States, is not a matter of politics.

    Even Mormons can run for President.

  10. The government of the United States is an agnostic one.

    All religions are welcome, even Taoists.

  11. Tell me, gag, are you a follower of Christ the Jewish Jesus, or the Roman version advocated by Saul?

    Saul who later in life became Paul.

    His version of Christianity being quite different than that preached by Jesus.

  12. The Christianity of Galilee or of Constantinople?

  13. There was a civil war in Afghanistan, one in which the proxies of Pakistan, Taliban, were battling the proxies of India, Northern Alliance.

    At the turn of the century, the Taliban were ahead.
    The US intervened and put the Northern Alliance on top.
    B52s can do that.

    The Afghan civil war continues, with the US backing Mr Karzai.
    The Taliban, still with the Pakistani.

  14. This Desert Rat fellow is a total idiot, but I have no time to pursue the subject right now. He puts his toe in the waters of religion and thinks he's a swimmer.

    Total moron.
