A preacher in Turkey has said that men should grow beards to make clear they are not women.
Islamic speaker Murat Bayaral spoke on TV show Fatih Medreseleri this weekend, slamming men without beards.
Bayaral said: 'Men should grow beards. One of the two body parts that separate men from women is the beard,' according to Hurriyet Daily News.

Apparently the beard also can prevent indecent thoughts....mine must be defective... :ohno:

Woman stabbed 14 times in Minneapolis Uptown neighborhood. She survived fighting back. Only Fox gave a description of the attacker.

Link

Evenson said she got a very clear look at the suspect as she struggled with him for a few minutes. She describes him as a thin, Somali man in his early twenties with a slight accent and short, afro-style hair.

One thing I do not understand, why do libs defend and protect radical Muslims? They would kill these libs just as eagerly as they do conservatives.

How does she know he’s Somalian? He might be Chadian, or Malian, or Algerian...

25,000 Somalians in the Minnesota, with the largest population in the inner-city of Minneapolis. Probably just a wild guess on her part.

I never understood taking Somalian refugees from hot as fuck Africa, and putting them in the 2 coldest (lower 48) & 2 of the whitest, states in Maine & Minnesota..Makes zero sense..

The desert southwest would have made far more sense..

A single payer system (that liberals love to point out as one the US should emulate) with overburdened hospitals & super long wait times for non emergency procedures. I'm shocked I tell you.

The town I live in has such a monument (albeit it's to slaves). I’ll take a pic next time I’m in town.

http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation- ... 16322.html
Across South Carolina and the South, Confederate monuments are ubiquitous. In Rock Hill, York, Chester, Lancaster, the monuments are in front of county courthouses and in cemeteries, and tout a cause historians say clearly was born out of secession to keep slavery.

Fort Mill is different.

Fort Mill has a monument in its Confederate Park dedicated to slaves. “Faithful slaves” to the Confederacy, the monument states, memorialized by the Samuel White family of Fort Mill.

There are Sons of Confederate Veterans chapters in SC that have black members. Not many, but they trace their ancestry to black soldiers - likely from the end of the war when it actually happened. They were conscripted mostly, and none of them actually fought, to my knowledge.

In the late 1980's Jimmy was making $150 Million a year
(In 1988 dollars that is mind boggling)

Many millions of IDIOTS enthusiastically gave that clown their hard earned money

But first:
We first have to establish the limits of human stupidity
and for that I give you Jimmy Swaggart supporters
