Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!

What kind of country are we living in?

From the 18 December 2004 edition of the Arizona Republic:

"Nearly half of all Americans believe the U.S government should restrict the civil liberties of American Muslims, according to a nationwide poll.

The survey conducted by Cornell University also found that Republicans and people who described themselves as highly religious were more apt to support curtailing Muslims' civil liberties than Democrats or people who are less religious.

... The survey found 44 percent favored at least some restrictions on the civil liberties of Muslim Americans. Forty-eight precent said liberties should not be restricted in any way.

The survey showed that 27 percent of respondents supported requiring all Muslim Americans to register where they lived with the federal government.

Cornell student researchers questioned 715 people in the nationwide telephone poll this fall. The margin of error was 3.6 percentage points."

I'm not all that surprised, but I am very sad about this. If I need to explain to someone why this is wrong, you probably need to move to North Korea or someplace like that. Is this why we elected a morally strong president? Do I want to live in this country anymore? What happened to America?
