Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

We are a nation that is governed by laws, not emotions. And one of those laws protects religious belief and speech. I personally like that law. Same goes for the Second Amendment and all the others. They make us what we are, and I'm not willing to just toss those away because somebody is frightened.

Personally, I think the fear of a near constant threat of mutually assured destruction was a lot more frightening that a potential attack from an ISIS sympathizer. But I get it. Today's Americans are a perpetually paranoid and pants shitting lot these days.

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

So if he just said ban everyone from countries that just happen to be populated with and run by Muslims that would be ok. Don't worry about the radicalized Muslims like the citizens of France and Belgium that perpetrated the attack in Paris if they want to come in because they are not from a war torn country.

I think it is funny that everyone is going ape shit over him saying this when all he is saying is to stop letting people into this country who identify with a religion that a small but significant portion want to kill us until we make sure that we know they do not want to kill us. People seem to be ignoring the part after "until" in his statement. Trump says plenty of stupid shit, his words don't need to be twisted and misinterpreted to demonstrate that.

If one in four people who identify with a certain a religion (I do think that number is dubious but even if it is one in ten that is enough to raise concern) have expressed an opinion that violent acts against Americans are acceptable that is something to consider. It just might not be a bad idea to make sure that if we are letting someone in they are in the three out of four (or nine in ten) majority and not part of the minority.

Some of the "until" stuff is already being proposed by Senator Harry Reid. He wants to "provide technical assistance to European nations to screen migrants from war-torn parts of the Middle East that have flooded that continent" and "prevent people on the terrorists "no-fly" list from being able to buy a gun" and "strengthen the visa waiver program so ISIS fighters can't access the program and travel to our country." Trump has given, as is typical, no details but I would think that things like this would be on the table.

NoFaith,

Nope. A faith is not limited to a nation. Trump's ban would affect all Muslims, regardless of nation of origin or status as American citizens.

Isn't this pretty much the same as when Jimmy Carter banned Iranians from entering the country during the hostage crisis?

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

First a call to put the Muslims into camps and now this!! Where will it end? This happened EXACTLY in Nazi Germany in ww2!! How can people with a brain support this person? YOUR TRAITORS TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, because a CNN/ALEX JONES poll of 700 people (mostly CNN EXECUTIVES).

First the MUSLIMS, THEN THE JEWS, THEN THE CHRISTIANS, and then the WITCHES...This is what will happen next surely. Remember how the patriot act was just supposed to target the MUSLIMS at first but then it was implemented on EVERYONE'S smartphone/FACEBOOK air plane rides? This failed to stop random killers shooting up churches somehow... YET they made TRILLIONS skinning the American people for information, as they sold your PERSONAL FACEBOOK MESSAGES/LOCATIONS to the CORPORATIONS to use so that they could target your children in your homes when your at work to educate them against you.

Slowly but surely our government resembles the government of CHINA more and more. SPIRITUALITY WILL BE ILLEGAL AND EXECUTED. There is already comparisons between RADICAL ISLAM and the Jews/CHRISTIANS. Ask the Buddist Tibetan monks. These KINGS OF WALLSTREET want to subject the people of earth (gods property) like CAESAR did and put it on payroll but they CANNOT without constant WAR. Just like the FALLEN AZTEC EMPIRE.

Judas killed Jesus but he still got paid right? The ROMAN EMPIRE COLLAPSED within 400 years completely to HOMELESS ROAMING MASSES as you know....Early forms of Christianity was later implemented as a last ditch attempt to save it by the SYRIAN EMPEROR CONSTANTINE. These values came too late to save it however, and the world plunged into DARKNESS until the rise of ISLAM. What are we paving the way for a second wave of destruction? History repeats itself. Any society that turns away from GODS LAW/ THE GOLDEN RULE FOR ALL LIVING CREATURES FADES OUT OF THE HISTORY BOOKS FOREVER. However we are at a later day and time....This time who will manage the NUCLEAR facilities when our CIVILIZATION collapses? This is SATAN, and a trick to further pervert/destroy the GARDEN OF EDEN (our earth). Anyone want a bite of the big apple?

The only option of winning support of the people of earth is the golden rule. You catch more flies with honey, and it is spiritual/physical LAW to every religion/person on earth. It is the GLUE THAT KEEPS OUR COUNTRY/WORLD TOGETHER. RADICAL ISLAM IS KILLING ISLAM OFF OF THE PLANET and this JACKASS MAFIA BANKER is unifying them once again by making the UNITED STATES a common enemy through WRECKLESS SPEECH. TALK ABOUT BENGHAZI!!! He'll put you all in camps later too (with the muslims) for having your own opinions... or being the SOUTHERN RACISTS they depict you as on CABLE TV.

The bankers have HEDGEmoney over the the united states, and they are all not even AMERICAN.

They (the bankers) want us to destroy ourselves (americans) so that they can rush in like heroes with a preplanned solution and bottled water. The WALL STREET MAFIA is running scared from the people of earth.... They then send our brothers and sisters to DIE or be injured in far off lands like IRAQ as they move their drug using enTITLEdchildren into YOUR houses on the Penninsula (as later only they can afford the taxes on it).

Apparently you SUPPORTERS OF THIS don't remember what all of those people on the YORKTOWN sacrificed their lives for.... FREEDOM. NOT THE HOLOCAUST or concentration camps for their children...

Re: “Donald Trump calls for immediate ban on Muslim immigrants into U.S.

ha ha... lol Well I'm not at liberty here to talk about any factory connections, but the last I heard the Aliens had already reached the climax of what they could learn by probing buttholes in this country and were on to other methods of research and development.

NASA refutes these claims and says that the only phenomenon they can actually substantiate is the John Glenn firefly "spark" phenomenon as they have pictures and video of it as well as testimonies of it.

The Hedge Fund Mafia of NY refutes the Alien Butthole claims as well, but ALEX JONES has exposed the truth saying they have already "back engineered" several alien ships, and that the ET's have sold the techniques they have obtained to Donald Trump incorporated on how to handle American tax payers. Thanks ALEX JONES!!

The truth is out there

Wait...wait a minute here....Zee, are you telling us that Aliens are NOT butt probing people? What a huge let down. I was kind of hoping for ET to show up in leather chaps. The Donald could also benefit from a good butt probe, clear his mind, so to speak.

Im with Lyndsey Graham. Respect to all the people that don't get their DISINFORMATION from ALEX JONES, and believe ALIENS butt probe people. Masons are not satan worshipers, and not brushing your teeth with flouride causes cavities. Flouride in tooth paste doesn't make you stupid. Listening to ALEX JONES does.

Wow talk about making a fool of people in SOUTH CAROLINA. You idiots who went gave him a STANDING OVATION. We found the support group of the AME church shooter there too.

I love white privledge. This was a ridiculous article. There was a black golfer for goodness sakes!! And menial white workers were mentioned but no word of the poor lower class. I thought I was about to read an interesting article but you are what's wrong with today's whiney generation. Get a life and a real job instead of inventing crap to complain about.

It is pretty obvious that every geeky white boy gets all butt hurt when someone "special" dies. You "men" be acting like teenage girls right now with the "go fuck yourself" insults. You don't even understand that you should be praising your rock lord star almighty instead of getting into trysts with haeters...just sayyyinnn boys, you'll end up like him if you keep up this angsty nightmare hate everyone episode...

Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

Dude I hope you don't write music reviews for a living because you have no idea what you are talking about. I was a huge Pearl Jam fan and don't even think Core sounded much like them, Purple was a completely different from Core in SO many ways, and Tiny Music continued that trend. Even No 4 had more diversity than you are apparently capable of. Get a freakin' clue...

I would tell all of those were Hitler quotes, but only because Trump wouldn't/can't use such big words or speak so fluently.

Can you tell me any STP album that resembles the previous one? Let alone any album that resembles some early pearl jam other than a few songs on core?
