Sandcrawler PSA: They Really Do Hate US
Robert Fowler was kidnapped by Mokhtar Belmokhtar's not-so-merry band of terrorists in 2008 and published a book about the experience, "A Season In Hell: My 130 Days in the Sahara with Al Qaeda." From the excerpts I've read, the title accurately sums up Fowler's experience. Belmokhtar's group is, of course, responsible for the recent assault on a natural gas field in eastern Algeria and the subsequent hostage crisis. Fowler, a Canadian diplomat who was serving the United Nations when he was kidnapped, has had some interesting things to say about Belmokhtar and his henchmen.Get it? It's not our foreign policy, it's not our freedoms, liberal, conservative -- they don't care. Its ALL OF US. Death to America!I was afraid for my life all the time," recalled Fowler, "when I woke up in the morning and when I went to sleep at night." ...
Fowler also said Belmokhtar's band was made up of "experienced desert fighters" who hate the West. "I can't tell you the extent to which they hate us," he said. "They believe we are evil incarnate.

There are a few on the right that think that codifying morality into law is good.
I get their reasons, but most of it has a snowball's chance in hell of getting support to become law.
Me I tend to think social choices, well they won't escape Judgement.
But Occam is still skeert.
He can't quite tell the difference between those who would like to pass a law from those who would cut his throat.
Approve of abortion? I don't know anyone who really approves of Abortion. Anyone with any sense anyway. But disapproving of it and codifying it are two different things.
The child gets grace and the rest go to hell. Fair enough for me.

If I may be so bold and self-serving, I attempted to clarify this issue for the unwashed when I wrote "The Post-Cognitive Convulsive Reflex Test", Parts 1 2
Part 1 (the "They Hate Us" Pop Quiz):
Part 2 (the actual test itself):
Please enjoy, and don't forget - they hate us.
