'I've got about 1½ quarts of that orange wine .. but
it has taken on somewhat of a bitter taste. I have a lot of that
orange infused sugar syrup left, so maybe I'll mix it all together.
Because I'm not enthusiastic about it however, I know in the long run
it's all going down the drain. The Orange peels though ... holy
crap, to die for. Actually, they taste like those soft
orange candy slices they sell -- and are just as good [diabetic coma] for you..
Thanks to everyone who sent me advice, all of it good, but all of it requiring more effort than I'm willing to spend.
That is, if Muslims
don’t kill me for leaving Islam, which it requires them to do. That’s
just one of the reasons I’ve been writing and drawing against Islam and
its Jihad for a number of years now. But fortunately for us, Islam
hasn’t been able to make every Muslim its slave, just as Nazism wasn’t
able to turn every German into a Nazi. So there is Islam and there are
Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and
Muslims who don’t aren’t.
But that doesn’t mean we should consider these
reluctant Muslims allies against Jihad. I’ve been around Muslims
my entire life and most of them truly don’t care about Islam. The
problem I have with many of these essentially non-Muslim Muslims,
especially in the middle of this war being waged on us by their more
consistent co-religionists, is that they give the enemy cover. They
force us to play a game of Muslim Roulette since we can’t tell which
Muslim is going to blow himself up until he does. And their
indifference about the evil being committed in the name of their
religion is a big reason why their reputation is where it is. [Full]
nicely explains why Muslum communities in non-Muslum countries
represent a huge danger. Kind of like how the Medellin drug
were able to co-opt Columbia's political, law enforcement, and
military establishments — "go along
or we'll kill you and your entire family" resonates.
