20 years from now, there will be so many muslims in the usa that they can elect whomever they wish in any office in the land- including president.
Even before that, we can start feeling the horrific effects of SHARIA LAW - being pushed and practiced now, by Muslims who have come to the USA, in private at home.
Muslims have a world domination goal, please read the article below, written by an Egypt-born formerly muslim woman.

If a small town in Louisiana can make the racist bigot homophobe Fred Phelps quake in his boots and cancel an appearance, then surely we in Little Beirut can do the same! Phelps and his "church" have scheduled appearances beginning later this week at synagogues and churches in the Portland area....
I will always question all "so-called authority" because I believe it is a healthy and *natural* thing to do. As a species looking to evolve and make progress I believe it is necessary to do so and is crucial for our own survival. Asking questions is fundamental and vital if we are to be able to help in 'healing the planet' with all that Mother Earth is being subjected to by humankind.

Rev. Rick Warren, the best known advocate of California's Proposition 8, the gay marriage ban, has staked his reputation as an international humanitarian on his alliance with Kagame, and on his Rwandan and Ugandan HIV/AIDS ministries, which are infamous for hijacking PEPFAR, the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, in service to his abstinence-only-until-heterosexual-married -monogamy-for-life agenda. And now Kagame has been sued, in an Oklahoma Court, for guilt in the Rwanda Genocide and the Congo War, which have together cost 7 million African lives.

Too bad Sarah Palin is not blonde. Fore if she were bleached, whenever she said anything remotely stupid or vapid, or her words could be twisted as such, she would be called on it. But more importantly some "male" dumbos of the Tea Party coalition, that is those who have sprung to pay her fees to speak at their conventions, too could eventually get it. They too, some of them that is, would finally see beyond her "charm," and look for someone more than a playboy bunny to inspire their political consciousness.

he US and many countries around the world are examining how to deal with erotic entertainment. Although there are tens of thousands of arrests in the US each year for erotic entertainment and related crimes, in 11 Nevada counties erotic entertainment is legal. Because this polarizing issue is debated in universities, legislatures, newspapers, and elsewhere, and given its public policy implications, we thought the issue was ripe for our nonpartisan pro-con examination.
Recent articles about Portland's SERT are a bit unsettling.
