Hopefully, the jihadis will not learn that some people consider Jedi to be a real religion and therefor won't go out of your way to destroy the site.

8 It's really amazing. Bobby Jindal was "ashamed of his culture" for adopting an anglo name. Ted Cruz is "not really Hispanic, despite his name." It's almost as though they will attack any minority conservative no matter what they do. Posted by: Lauren at March 24, 2015 07:27 PM (eQBH3) ...

In a preview of the 2016 campaign, all five late night comics on Monday night mocked Ted Cruz, hitting the Republican as anti-immigrant, regressive and stupid. CBS host David Letterman didn't bother with a joke. Instead, he lectured, "Here's what I find interesting about Ted Cruz, he was born in Canada. His father fled to the United States from Cuba. Yet, Ted Cruz is against immigration. Isn't that odd?"

Notice how there is no solution.
 
Disregard that this is from the HuffPo. There's actually some good analysis in there from a real professional.
The interconnected nature of the world thanks to information technology and globalization creates an acute awareness about opportunities elsewhere....

"Yet, Islam still has high expectations and aspirations fueled by past accomplishments."

Yes, bought at the point of a sword,with millions of deaths and millions of slaves.

"it would certainly help to increase the online and social media visibility of moderate and reformist Islamic theologians that counter the extremist interpretation of Islam."

He's right about that. There are such people, but their visibility is nill. A cynical person might say that there is a certain fear of ostracism or being murdered that prevents them from increasing their visibility.

"it is an extremist movement and a pseudo-state in search of citizens." 

At what point does it stop the slaughter and actually work on building a state? Or would that be too boring? Resulting in what would be effectively a (brutal) dictatorship?

Interesting article and his idea probably accounts for some of the recruits. Of course, by now I'm sure everyone, even those living under rocks, knows ISIS is pretty bloodthirsty. It seems odd that people who are frustrated with their status would turn to a mass slaughter movement to express that sentiment.

Unless, of course, there was some hardcore ideology behind it which offered a serious path for getting rid of the oppressors, fixing the problems, and boosting their own fortunes (and dealing with some revenge fantasies at the same time.)

Why doe that last remark make it sound like a left-wing movement?

MAKE the judge drink his coffee and see what would happen to the pervert.
Frankly, I'm for spilling a pot on his crotch.

I am glad this happened just because there are so many false claims against men that are believed.
Then on top of that sexual harassment against men is laughed at.

This needs to be fixed. Conservatives and liberals probably would seek different solutions, but there is enough overlap for bipartisan support, if the will is there.
"But wait a second. How is it that hospitals are also gouging Medicare? Medicare alone accounts for 20 percent of all national health expenditures, a number that, if anything, understates the extent of its influence. Shouldn’t Medicare be able to use its pricing power to get hospitals to play ball? Medicare offers standardized reimbursement rates for different services, which hospitals always insist are far too low. Yet for some routine medical procedures, the reimbursement rate is higher than the cost of performing the procedure (which, once you already have the equipment and the personnel, can be pretty low), meaning the hospital makes money off of the procedures. For other services, like giving a patient personal attention, the reimbursement rate is lower than the cost of providing the service, so this is where hospitals skimp. The unsurprising result is that we have a health system that is increasingly devoid of personal attention while at the same time generating an ever-higher volume of the medical procedures for which Medicare is willing to overcompensate.

Five years ago this week, Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, and we’ve been debating it ever since. Like many Americans, I oppose Obamacare, and I think we ought to repeal it and replace it. Over the past few months, however, I’ve come to the conclusion that...
