Oklahoma state Sen. Bennett: American Muslims are a ‘cancer in our nation that needs cutting out’

John Bennett (Tulsa World)

Oklahoma state Senator John Bennett (R) came under fire last week for comments he made about Muslims in America.

The Tulsa World reports that yesterday he doubled down on those comments, refusing to apologize “because I’m right, and they know I’m right.”

Bennett claims that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) “used political pressure to make me back down, but I didn’t and I’m not going to.”

“Is there a difference between moderate and radical Islam?” he asked, before answering, “I say, ‘No.’”

He then said that the goal of all Muslims is “the destruction of Western civilization from within. This is a cancer in our nation that needs to be cut out,” he added, but “the media is playing right into their hands.”

Would you support Bernie in the primaries - but back Hillary if she becomes the party nominee?

This is of course if Sen. Sanders runs for the Democratic nomination in 2016.

This is the absolutely the weirdest Psych test I have come across so far- Dissociative Identity

Disorder -

Dissociative identity disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder) is thought to be an effect of severe trauma during early childhood, usually extreme, repetitive physical, sexual, or emotional abuse.

What Is Dissociative Identity Disorder?

Most of us have experienced mild dissociation, which is like daydreaming or getting lost in the moment while working on a project. However, dissociative identity disorder is a severe form of dissociation, a mental process which produces a lack of connection in a person's thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of identity. Dissociative identity disorder is thought to stem from trauma experienced by the person with the disorder. The dissociative aspect is thought to be a coping mechanism -- the person literally dissociates himself from a situation or experience that's too violent, traumatic, or painful to assimilate with his conscious self.


Here are 28 fairly simple - but VERY strange questions - This will take only a few minutes to complete:

Mother turns over sexting 13-year-old daughter to police for ‘harsh’ punishment

By Scott Kaufman
Sunday, August 24, 2014 11:48 EDT

A Virginia mother turned her 13-year-old daughter over to police after she found nude images of the teen on her phone and tablet, CBS 6 News reports.

The Dinwiddie, Virginia mother — whose name will not be revealed, to protect her daughter’s identity — said that she discovered the images after she found her daughter using her phone and tablet at 4 a.m. last week. She confiscated the eighth grader’s electronics and began to look through the recent activity, where she found photographs both of her daughter and her peers.

“Looking through the phone and the tablet we did find sexual pictures, conversations that were very inappropriate for her age,” she told CBS 6 News.

She then took the drastic step of turning her daughter in to sheriff’s department. “We did this now to protect her for now and in the future, because this could get worse. She could be taken,” the teen’s mother said. “What she’s facing may be harsh, but we feel it’s for her own protection.”

Starbucks: We don't fund Israel

The coffee chain has issued a statement announcing that neither Starbucks nor CEO Howard Schultz "provides financial support to Israel," or to its army, in the wake of what Starbucks (SBUX) called "false rumors."

The company, which is known for flooding markets with its stores, also pointed out that it closed all of its stores in Israel in 2003 because of "operational challenges."

The company has publicly refuted claims about its support for Israel before, but reiterated its position because it saw an "uptick in false rumors out there about Starbucks and the Middle East," according to Olson.

"Starbucks does not support any political or religious causes, and that holds true for Howard as well," Olson said. "There's no financial support from Howard or the company to the Israeli government for any purposes."

Starbucks currently operates in early 600 stores in 12 countries in the Mideast and North Africa, including Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt.
