On the upside, at least they aren't evil atheists...

Then again, we are talking about religious nutters who really never change their mindset.

We are talking about folks who have fought an invading force for their entire lifetimes. Who have watched friends and family bombed or disappeared by the invaders.

We are upset because they didn't embrace western culture while fighting the western invaders. They should have turned over a new leaf and become more like the ones who killed their friends and family.

We are obviously far superior to them in all our thoughts and actions.

Why can't they see that?


Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

So the Taliban said no women students or instructors at Kabul University.


It appears the Taliban have taken a page out of the GOP handbook and say they're not doing what they're actually doing.

The generals testifying to congress are saying we should have not left Afghanistan. Who would think generals would favor war?


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
