Your View: Is this technology absent in White House?

Dec. 05, 2012 @ 03:01 AM

My daughter spent two months in Israel very recently. I spend a part of my lunch time several days a week talking with her on Skype through my cell phone. Got to see a sunset over the Mediterranean Sea through her laptop to my desktop one weekend.
The amazing thing is, this was all done REAL TIME! Are you not amazed that I can actually see something live as it is happening on my cell phone/desk top. Yet our president wants us to believe that his “Situation” room does not have that kind of technology. Much less more advanced such technology to watch real time at night-time.
And I thought my grandmother who is 93 years old had a difficult time wrapping her head around such a thing when my daughter Skyped with her through my phone while I was visiting at the nursing home.

Can a Muslim be a “good” American?
A short time ago, Iran’s Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ali Khomenei urged the Muslim world to boycott anything and everything that originates with the Jewish people.
In short, good and loyal Muslims properly and fittingly should remain afflicted with syphilis, gonorrhea, heart disease, headaches, typhus, diabetes, mental disorders, polio, convulsions and tuberculosis and be proud to obey the Islamic boycott. They should not use Novocain at the dentist, as it was invented by Jews. Also, good Muslims should not call their doctor on a cell phone, as it was even invented by a Jewish engineer.
The global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000 (one billion two hundred million) or 20 percent of the world’s population. In their entire history, only seven Muslims have won the Nobel Prize (one in literature, four in peace and two in medicine), unless you count Barack Hussein Obama, which would make it eight.
The global Jewish population is approximately 14,000,000 (fourteen million) or about 0.02 percent of the world’s population. Total Nobel Prizes: 129.
Can a Muslim be a “good” American? Theologically, no, because his allegiance is to Allah, the Moon God of Arabia. Religiously? No again, because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256). Socially? No again, because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews. Politically? No again because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan. Domestically? Again, no, because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).
Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL Muslims in this country. They obviously cannot be both “good” Muslims and “good” Americans by their own rules.
