Btw in 2015 a muslim man was denied german citizenship for doing the following:
refusing to shake woman's hand
when asked about bodily punishment for infidelity and amputation for theft he simply said "god is merciful" but explained that he currently doesnt live in a country that would do those things anyway. Meaning; he doesn't outright condemn it. Why not? Because condemning a quranic prescription is akin to disbelief.
when asked about the sharia and how in sura 4 verse 34, men are seen as caretakers of women and how it's incompatible with german constitution, he says "before god, men and women are equal"
when confronted with the question of Muhammad marrying a 9yo girl, he said "it was never an issue back then"

Other than that, the 40yo senior doctor aced the naturalization test and had sworn loyalty to germany.

He wasnt given citizenship due to his islamic beliefs being incompatible with core german values.

My thoughts? I applaud both the man and the german officials. You gotta have principles, after all. Rejecting his citizenship was the right decision, imo.

I personally wont be mad if I get rejected citizenship for being a muslim. At the moment I'd prolly feel like a total sellout if I just parrot "the best answer" and give what the officials wanna hear. Woulda defeated the purpose of having the freedom to express one's opinion, wouldn't it?

Trump Is Taking Down Names as Republicans Begin Jumping Ship on His ‘Totally Off the Rails’ Campaign

The rats are leaving the sinking ship that is the Trump presidency, and President Donald "We swear he's not an authoritarian" Trump is making an enemies list of the defectors. Because that's what normal people do.



A few months ago the Trump re-election campaign compared itself to the Death Star. With Biden kicking his ass in the polls Mark Hamill is having a hoot with this one.

Personally I'm waiting for Biden-as-Iron-Man as a response to the infamous (and thanks to Covid, disturbingly accurate) Trump-as-Thanos ad, but hey this is just as good.

The irony in comparing ones campaign to a something that was famously impressive looking on the outside, won one battle, and then was ultimately undone thanks to a critical design flaw during the 11th hour on the eve of their potential "victory".

Oh nice, I also applaud on that. I respect those who stick to their beliefs without any intention of harming others for it. So long as no one is hurt, whatever their belief may be, they're allowed to believe it.

I rather liked (no pun intended) the reply from Dan Rather on that.
It’s tempting to use the analogy of rats fleeing a sinking ship to describe the growing number of Republican elected officials starting to speak out against Donald Trump. But that's really not fair to rats, who tend not to be complicit in driving ships to the bottom of the sea.

I was looking at a breakdown on the house races.

If current polling holds, dems are likely to hold a majority of state delegations by about 1 or 2 states.

That won't be relevant unless there is a contested election, but still would be neat if they managed it.

@Latecomer

You didn’t figure that out after linking articles from NZ websites and suddenly having a massive interest in 3D-printed guns after March? Not even the discussions with Metro about cultures are made up of a lot of small things like the love for vegemite and not just big accomplishments? But I digress.

Ardern is NZ’s version of Obama, in that she talks a good game, but when it comes to actual delivery, she’s remarkably conservative. At least I know how Americans felt under Obama, Russians under Gorbachev, and Britbongs under Thatcher…

How many times does it have to be said: both Antifa and the militia movements ain’t shit compared to the likes of Weather Underground.

And everyone should have the freedom to live without the threat of irresponsibles spreading germs and viruses everywhere they go, but go explain that notion to covidiots…

I thought you were Aussie — I recall you talking a lot about their totalitarian tendencies. Or maybe that was someone else?

And Thatcher never played herself as a liberal. She was very upfront.

In fairness, they're not spreading germs intentionally…many are just trying to live their lives. If someone does die by negligence, you're welcome to prosecute for manslaughter.

Americans just don't like being told what to do, tgough I think the lockdowns were a bigger issue for people then the masks.
