And Pat Condell, Too!

"Any religion that endorses violence is incapable of delivering spiritual enlightenment. How obvious does that have to be?"

When the mohammadans conquered Jerusalem, a mosque built upon what was left of the synagogue. When Islam pushed the Eastern Pope from Constantinople, Hagia Sophia, the center of Eastern Christendom, was turned into a mosque. In Codoba, Spain, the boorish Moors converted the Catholic church to a mosque.

The purpose in each case was not to simply give the conquerers a place to worship, but to humiliate the conquered, to destroy the old religion, make clear the musselman superiority, and make an everlasting claim to the land. Once muslim, always muslim.

That is the case with the G-Zero mosque - Cordoba House. Muslim blood was spilt there and that provides the claim to the land. I should say bolsters the mohammadan claim because they already claim all of America based on the belief that the lookout on Columbus' ship who actually spotted land was a muslim forced to convert to Christianity. Since conversion by lying to save one's life is permitted, they claim he was still muslim and the discovery of America and America itself belongs to Islam.

And that includes Canada to Argentina.

"And that includes Canada to Argentina.

And a half hour later in Newfoundland.

(That's a Canadianism. You wouldn't get it.)

No, no. I get it. We have the same jokes here about certain communities.

When I was a kid in the Sacramento, Calif area there were Army, Air Force, and Marine bases within the broadcast area of a rock music station. I remember the dj anouncing the time one afternoon, "... for the Army, the time is 1400 hrs; for the Air Force, it is 2 o'clock in the afternoon; for the Marines, the big hand is on the twelve and the little hand is on the two."

Actually, it's not a statement on the lifestyle or brainpower of Newfies, but rather a statement of fact about time zones.

Newfoundland was a separate country at the time timezones were established and it got to choose it's own. Any radio program, for example that starts on the hour on the East coast starts a half hour "later" in Newfoundland. CBC used to announce the timing of their programs that way all the time, so much so that "and a half hour later in Newfoundland" became a country-wide snicker of sorts.

They literally have their own timezone (Newfoundland Standard Time). It's the only place in the world that uses it.

And hey, I thought the Marines were supposed to be la creme d' la creme. Are you telling me they're not?
