    Yes, our BFF in Saudi are at it again.

    First bloggers, now poets.

    How exactly are our Saudi allies superior to Da'esh?

    There once was a poet from Palestine
    who made a recording and put it online
    it showed the muatween
    acting quite mean
    so to save faith and face
    from shameful disgrace
    they decided it was best
    to sentence the poor poet to death.

    So the story now goes
    where belief is more valued than prose
    best keep on your toes
    and do what they say
    they can't change your faith
    but they can take your life away.

    I suppose your not included when it comes to social justice, lol. It's DESPICABLE.... there, and I mean it. Just fatigued with all the other BS, the socially conscious have to deal with in this forum. ;)

    I think if you look at this thread you will see that most of PRSI's liberal and progressive voices came down firmly and resolutely against the barbaric nature of Saudi justice.

    Don't look to make disagreements where none exists.

    Humor escapes you.

    It was about the spoiled rich brats lucky enough to be living here attending one of the best schools, but they take issue about where they live with invented problems and writing manifestos.

    Meanwhile, over there, there is a lash for that. ;)

    It unfortunately precedes both of them. I do feel sorry for their privileged citizens. Obama was also briefly criticized by a few members of Congress for poor maintenance of diplomatic relations with the Saudis. It was a while ago.

    I looked at that thread. That is by no means "most of PRSI's liberal and progressive voices". You sure do talk a good game but nothing ever really gets explained by your mostly well thought out and written responses.

    FieldingMellish is actually quite sharp in his question. I do not see many (could be almost any) progressive members posting how they hate sharia law and all of its disgusting treatments of men, women, and children, when we have many examples per day of their barbarity.

    Your "most" is a meager couple of responses in weeks or months old threads, but your "most" is quite eager to crap lightening to burn a conservative or call them right wing nuts, tea billies, republi-cons, or any other vitriolic term you can come up with. You progressives have more hate for an opposing political party in one of the freest nations on the planet, than you do for the real global problems that actually deserve a little vitriol.

    Our Saudi Besties are superior because they manipulate the strings that make our Puppet Congressmen dance.

    I agree with a lot of what you say here. I don't agree that sharia law per-say is bad - or any worse than any other religious law - but I do agree that sharia law as practiced in places like Saudi Arabia and other parts of the Middle East is bad. A lot of the Middle East is pretty backwards.

    F' ing savages!

    Even if you sprinkle a bunch of money on it, you can't fix stupid.

    And they are not our allies. 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were from that armpit of a country.

    While I can almost understand somebody growing up poor and illiterate in the tribal areas of Pakistan developing these crazy views, Saudi is pretty much a factory for molding spoiled rich kids into these kind of whackos. It's a cesspool.

    BTW - Newsflash, Saudi Arabia: Turns out women can drive!

    Depends on the country, in Turkey it's probably 30 years behind, in Saudi Arabia 600 is probably not far out.
