RE: Just read this.

Overinterpretation embodies itself in a variety of ways, the smallest being organized religion, and the most radical being the jihadist who cite the Qur'An as a valid excuse to carry out their plight against the infidels.

Parents these days..

I was wondering the other day if my parents can command a level of respect that goes beyond my own principles? How did this come to my mind? My parents and I were out with this other family (a couple). The male brought his mother, who was talking about how her words are law and it doesn't matter whe...

Bush had a hidden agenda to take out Saddam that originates from when Saddam had put a death threat on Bush Sr. So in a sense, Bush use...
