Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 13, 2017

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Almost all the "poor" illegal migrants on the Greek islands want to go to Germany, where they have heard from friends and relatives that they will be the best paid for being refugees. The cliché "the-poor-souls-are-fleeing-war-in-their-native-country" is becoming less and less convincing by the day. True, most Syrians fled to Turkey after the start of civil war in their country. But is flight from war their motivation as they proceed onwards to Greece, Serbia, Hungary, and Austria?

Probably as anyone fleeing for their life, once they've made it out they look for the best place to land with the most opportunity and support. They are fleeing for their life and being forced to start life over from nothing. Probably not a lot of refugees with ATM cards attached to their savings account full of cash. Sorry, anecdotal stories, especially ones nobody can corroborate, don't cut crap.

Even if true, JAMES----They're just doing what Trump actually brags about, manipulating existing laws to make a buck.

You may have even been one who praised Donald's common sense for that, the way the man himself did on one national debate.

NOT PAYING TAXES MAKES YOU SMART. Get that? Donald Trump pays no taxes, but you do. You're dumb.

ZED, I haven't posted anything on this article until now. I posted the article because I thought some here might find it interesting.

So WTF are you referring to?

#2 | Posted by gavaster In reference to my exposure to Muslims, I lived in the ME for about three years. I lived with them, slept in the same rooms, ate with them, taught them, and there is nothing special about them. They are just people. Not particularly virtuous, not particularly corrupt. My argument is with the texts that shackle them to perceptual backwardness.

#8 - Muslim countries don't have a monopoly on perceptual backwardness. There are several predominately Buddhist nations like India, Myanmar, Malaysia, who outlaw homosexuality for instance. Papa New Quniea which is almost entirely Christian actually still outlaws homosexuality punishable by prison. (Interesting fact: It is only illegal for me to be gay, it is legal for the women) The one thing all of these countries do have in common though is being third world countries, being ruled by the elite, and a general lack of basic freedoms of expression. Perceptual backwardness seems closer tied to individual liberty and freedom than any particular religion. It's power that corrupts nations, not necessarily religion.

#10 | Posted by gavaster, 1)India is Hindu, not Buddhist. 2)Myanmar is about 30% Muslim.3) Malaysia is almost entirely Muslim. 4)Papa New Quniea is primarily practicing tribal religions, Christianity is mostly a city practice, they are Christian like Haiti is. As far as gay rights, there is plenty of homosexual behavior in Islamic countries, as long as it isn't public- most don't care. From what I witnessed, most men prefer young boys there, if they can afford to buy one. Women are considered a duty. All religions condemn homosexuality. Sex rolls exist for a reason. Homosexuality is considered a threat because it challenges the family structure. In most places, family,(immediate and extended) is the only security they have.

I don't think they "prefer" men so much as you will likely get killed if you even think of boning someone not your wife.

I saw a story on this a couple years ago, when I get home I'll try to find it.

It's called Bacha Bazi

Isn't the story I read, but it's pretty close....there are plenty of stories out there.

----------------

Also, Myanmar is predominately Buddhist (high 80%s) and only about 4% Muslim. They are actually having some violence done against them as well. Been in the news lately
