"In the 700s they had southern Europe for a long time"

and they got all the way to--- france. gee, the rocks that the peasants in france were throwing back in 1300 must have stopped them cold in their camel tracks...

"Do you know any history at all?"

yes, but apparently not the skewed version of it that you have been shoveled full of.

"How much ground have they gained in the last couple years?"

well i know they lost israel and most of their satellite -stan states were taken over to form the southern part of the soviet union. not to mention they were blown up by america over the last 15 years in places such as iraq, yemen, pakistan, syria, somalia, libya, and afghanistan. does all that loss count as gain in your eyes?

wait a second, now i know you haven't a clue. muslims have been in the same damn places as they have been over the past 600 years. it's a fact. look it up. or are you counting muslim areas that were colonized by britain and france and italy et. al. that were taken back over by the muslims as places of conquest? if so, it is you who needs the history lesson, not i.

"They are slowly taking over Europe without war and they are making progress here in the US."

yes. i see their trenches from outside my apartment window. the baltimore slums are soon to fall. prince charles is close to conversion and the louvre has placed burkahs over the topless women in their renoir paintings. it's only a matter of time before oktoberfest is closed down and germans are forced to eat falafel.

"Had you heard about shira law here in the US prior to 2000?"

you mean sharia law? well, i'm only 25, so no. before 2000, i was mostly focused on spongebob and ernest movies.

apparently those crazy muslims don't like paying interest, and like many fundamentalist christians in this country, who just so happen to outnumber muslims in the legislative branch 147-1, they are all for the death penalty and making abortion illegal again. the pressure is palpable, i know. every time i turn on a.m. radio i can feel the raging muslim hordes breathing down my back with their colossally unstoppable juggernaut of oppression.

"For your information, they are trying to get the courts to recognize it all over the western world"

omfg, they are using the court system!!!! what next? posters in the subway??? billboards? bumper ------- stickers?!?

"you need to quit herding nerfs and start paying attention to what is happening around you"

actually, you are a 'nerf' and i'm quite capable of herding you while realizing that your paranoiac neoconservative fantasies about a muslim horde invasion are just that-- fantasies. and let me guess, you are one of those folks who think that obama is a secret muslim. thats ok. i think he is a actually a girl. it's the lack of a long muslim style beard that gives it away.

"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

--especially when you look at yourself in the mirror dropping acid..

"How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours."

--unless of course the way they treat you is based on an intentionally harmful action by your own personal doppelganger, or your pit bull.

"When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself."

--everyone is awesome..

"Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice."

--the key is to motivate yourself to be miserable.

"Conflict cannot survive without your participation."

--unless it is between a bunch of teenage suburban females raging over a pair of justin bieber tickets.

"You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with."

--it is not a question of liking them. it is a question of putting up with them. even oneself.

"The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about."

--either that or believing that barack obama is a secret muslim

"When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way."

--when i dance, my sole purpose, in each step, is to --------.

"Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life."

--there are those who love setting cornerstones of eventual slum tenements.

"Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into."

--i tuned into a quarter pound of mowie-wowie a few weeks back...

"Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you."

--i love those women that freely choose to submit themselves to my overpowering libido, despite my insistence not to...

"Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body rather than a body with a soul."

--i prefer to look at myself as a shoe without a sole...

"The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do."

--i am working on building a death robot pre-programmed with my anxiety, stress, fear and anger that will conquer the entire world and force them to read wayne dyer books by the wheelbarrow full.
