GOP urinates on republican rebranding


Recommended Posts

'Consider what the House GOP is up to right now. House Republicans recently passed an immigration amendment, pushed by anti-reform diehard Steve King, that would effectively mandate the deportation of the DREAMers who were taken to the U.S. as children. House Republicans are planning a vote next week on a measure that would ban abortions after 20 weeks, after defeating amendments that would exempt cases of rape or incest. And yesterday, House Republicans approved a version of the 2012 National Defense Reauthorization Act that contains what The Advocate calls three controversial, antigay amendments, one of which is aimed at delaying repeal implementation of dont ask, dont tell.

 

What do these three things have in common? They would seem to run directly counter to the obvious thought that the party needs to move beyond old, white, straight Protestants to remake itself as a party that's \not about hate.

 

That much-ballyhooed RNC autopsy into what went wrong in 2012 declared that the Republican Party needs to improve its outreach to Latinos, women, and gays and young voters. Analysts have similarly determined that their failure to improve their appeal among these groups would soon kill the party deader than bin Laden...."

Chemistry[edit]

 

This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

Citric acid: Jābir ibn Hayyān is credited with the discovery and isolation of citric acid, the sour component of lemons and other unripe fruits through the process of distillation.[5]

Nitric acid, sulfuric acid, acetic acid, tartaric acid, and hydrochloric acid: The mineral acids nitric acid, sulfuric acid, acetic acid, tartaric acid, and hydrochloric acid were first isolated by Jābir ibn Hayyān.[6] He originally referred to sulfuric acid as the oil of vitriol.[7]

 

Architecture[edit]

 

 

 

 

 

The interiors of the Alhambra in Spain are decorated with arabesque designs.

 

 

 

 

At 72.5 meters, the Qutab Minar was the tallest minaret until the 20th century, and remains the tallest brick and stone minaret in the world.Arabesque: An elaborative application of repeating geometric forms often found decorating the walls of mosques.

Minaret: The minaret is a distinctive architectural feature of Islamic architecture, especially mosques, dating back to the early centuries of Islam. Minarets are generally tall spires with onion-shaped crowns, usually either free standing or much taller than any surrounding support structure. The tallest minaret in pre-modern times was the Qutub Minar, which was 72.5 meters (237.9 ft) tall and was built in the 12th century, and it remains the tallest brick and stone minaret in the world.

 

Milling[edit]

Bridge mill: The bridge mill was a unique type of watermill that was built as part of the superstructure of a bridge. The earliest record of a bridge mill is from Córdoba, Spain in the 12th century.[8]

Vertical-axle windmill: A small wind wheel operating an organ is described as early as the 1st century AD by Hero of Alexandria.[9][10] The first vertical-axle windmills were eventually built in Sistan, Persia as described by Muslim geographers. These windmills had long vertical driveshafts with rectangle shaped blades.[11] They may have been constructed as early as the time of the second Rashidun caliph Umar (634-644 AD), though some argue that this account may have been a 10th-century amendment.[12] Made of six to twelve sails covered in reed matting or cloth material, these windmills were used to grind corn and draw up water, and used in the gristmilling and sugarcane industries.[13] Horizontal axle windmills of the type generally used today, however, were developed in Northwestern Europe in the 1180s.[9][10]

 

Medical products[edit]

 

Further information: Medicine in the medieval Islamic world

Mercuric chloride (formerly corrosive sublimate): used to disinfect wounds.[14]

 

Military[edit]

 

This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

Marching band and military band: The marching band and military band both have their origins in the Ottoman military band, performed by the Janissary since the 16th century.[15]

Hybrid trebuchet: The term Al-Ghadban (The Furious One) was applied to the hybrid trebuchet, though the usage of the term was not consistent and may have taken on a broader meaning.[16]

Syrian Al-Hassan er-Rammah's manuscript "The Book of Fighting on Horseback and With War Engines"(1280) includes the first known design for a rocket driven torpedo.[17][18]

 

Pottery[edit]

 

This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

 

Main article: Islamic pottery

 

 

 

 

 

Tin-glazed Hispano-Moresque ware with lusterware decoration, from Spain circa 1475.Albarello: An albarello is a type of maiolica earthenware jar originally designed to hold apothecaries' ointments and dry drugs. The development of this type of pharmacy jar had its roots in the Islamic Middle East.

Fritware: It refers to a type of pottery which was first developed in the Near East, where production is dated to the late 1st millennium AD through the second millennium AD Frit was a significant ingredient. A recipe for "fritware" dating to c. 1300 AD written by Abu’l Qasim reports that the ratio of quartz to "frit-glass" to white clay is 10:1:1.[19] This type of pottery has also been referred to as "stonepaste" and "faience" among other names.[20] A 9th-century corpus of "proto-stonepaste" from Baghdad has "relict glass fragments" in its fabric.[21]

Hispano-Moresque ware: This was a style of Islamic pottery created in Islamic Spain, after the Moors had introduced two ceramic techniques to Europe: glazing with an opaque white tin-glaze, and painting in metallic lusters. Hispano-Moresque ware was distinguished from the pottery of Christendom by the Islamic character of its decoration.[22]

Iznik pottery: Produced in Ottoman Turkey as early as the 15th century AD[23] It consists of a body, slip, and glaze, where the body and glaze are "quartz-frit."[24] The "frits" in both cases "are unusual in that they contain lead oxide as well as soda"; the lead oxide would help reduce the thermal expansion coefficient of the ceramic.[25] Microscopic analysis reveals that the material that has been labeled "frit" is "interstitial glass" which serves to connect the quartz particles.[26]

Lusterware: Lustre glazes were applied to pottery in Mesopotamia in the 9th century; the technique soon became popular in Persia and Syria.[27] Lusterware was later produced in Egypt during the Fatimid caliphate in the 10th-12th centuries. While the production of lusterware continued in the Middle East, it spread to Europe—first to Al-Andalus, notably at Málaga, and then to Italy, where it was used to enhance maiolica.

Stonepaste ceramic: Invented in 9th-century Iraq,[28] it was a vitreous or semivitreous ceramic ware of fine texture, made primarily from non-refactory fire clay.[29]

Tin-glazing: The tin-glazing of ceramics was invented by Muslim potters in 8th-century Basra, Iraq. The first examples of this technique can be found as blue-painted ware in 8th-century Basra.[30] The oldest fragments found to-date were excavated from the palace of Samarra about fifty miles north of Baghdad.[31]

So far, the GOP has managed to alienate every group it said it needed to win elections. Continuously.

 

Doesn't matter anymore, they're obsolete. They better disperse and form new sub-parties

Dano, don't we have enough "home grown" monsters roaming our streets? Is it really necessary to import more? Less than 20 % of illegals work in food service - agriculture. What do you think the other 80 % are up to? Unfortunately, too often, the innocent do suffer; but if suffering is in order ( life ain't fair ), let it be the people who shouldn't be here in the first place as opposed to the legal American citizen.

Illegal aliens commit far less crimes than Americans. Fact.

 

All Americans are immigrants. Fact.

 

Illegals have dropped off continuously since Bush left office. More Mexicans are leaving the U.S. than entering. Fact.

 

You want areal party......

Right, Islam. Been livin in that cave on Mars too long. Islam clings to the 7th century mind set that Moe the pedophile founded the cult on 1.400 years ago. Dano, do you actually work at stupidity? There were many great Islamic scholars; but any who stepped outside the frame of Islam were dead Islamic scholars. Hasn't changed in 1,400 years.

Islam Watch - Who Are We? About Us

 

 

Who are we?

We are a group of Muslim apostates, who have left Islam out of our own conviction when we discovered that Islam is not a religion at all. Most of us took a prolonged period of time to study, evaluate and contemplate on Islam, the religion of our birth. Having meticulously scrutinized Islam, we concluded that it is not a religion of peace at all, as touted by smooth-talking, self-serving Muslims and their apologists from non-Muslim backgrounds. The core of Islam—namely the Qur'an, Hadis and Sharia—is filled with unbounded hatred of the unbelievers, unbelievably intolerant toward them, and extremely cruel and merciless to those Muslims, who dare to deviate from its doctrines.

We also realized that Islam is beyond reformation, because Muslims—who attempt to modernize and reform its unremitting bigotry, irrational rituals, and cruel and draconian punitive measures—are targeted for annihilation. Our verdict was that the only way to escape from the tyranny of Islam is to leave it altogether. We have, therefore, discarded Islam from our life, so that we can be free to enjoy a normal, pleasant and humane life in complete harmony with all peoples on earth, irrespective of their religion, race or creed.

Having thoroughly understood—through our meticulous investigation of Islam for years to decades—that Islam was nothing but a lie, most of us have left Islam silently, because of the mortal threats of Islam on our life. As Islamic terrorism and violence overwhelms the world, particularly in the post-9/11 years, we also felt that it's a responsibility upon us to make world's 1.4+ billion Muslims aware of the falsity of their religion and its cruel nature, so that they can make informed choices and leave Islam to live with love, respect and harmony with the rest of humanity.

We also felt it incumbent upon us to make the non-Muslim world aware of the reality of Islam, and undertake timely precautionary measures against this religion of terror, hatred and mayhem. We tell the world that the ongoing terrorism, unleashed by Islamic militants, is not an aberration from the so-called 'peaceful religion of Islam'; instead, it is the real Islam preached and practiced by its founder, Prophet Muhammad. A thorough study of the Qur'an and prophetic tradition (Hadith, Sunnah) makes that obvious.

We, therefore, have launched this website to expose the "real Islam"—the Islam that is determined to replace the modern civilization with the 7th-century Arab Bedouin barbarism, peddled by Muslims as the true Islamic Civilization. Let the world watch Islam through www.islam-watch.org and be warned.
