My culture is better than your culture.  Yeah, you've been around for thousands of years.  And you still can't get it right.

Subby, I've been arrested falsely for nothing more than holding a sign 'peacefully protesting...' in the US.

Initial charges for disorderly conduct were dropped... only because they didn't apply and were subsequently replaced with harassment charges.

At trial, the state's witness didn't show. No matter, they refiled the case, and they 'won' an almost $1000 fine. Must have cost them ten times to press the issue.

Joke is on them. You know that phrase 'love it or leave it?'

Guess what I did.

America, of course, would never sink low enough to jail peaceful protesters who threaten its ass-backwards views.

Moved to Arizona, according to your profile.  That was smart only if you  moved from Saudi Arabia.

I'd like to see the harassment law that permits conviction for simply holding a sign.

Movement and Arizona are correct, but you got the direction wrong.

With all our blustering about radical Islam, we're STILL allies with these assholes, possibly the worst of the lot.

And we wonder why nobody takes us seriously.

ARS 13-2921. Harassment; classification; definition

A. A person commits harassment if, with intent to harass or with knowledge that the person is harassing another person, the person:
[...]
3. Repeatedly commits an act or acts that harass another person.

D. This section does not apply to an otherwise lawful demonstration, assembly or picketing.
E. For the purposes of this section, "harassment" means conduct that is directed at a specific person and that would cause a reasonable person to be seriously alarmed, annoyed or harassed and the conduct in fact seriously alarms, annoys or harasses the person.

As you see, circular law logic is circular. The demonstration can't be lawful if it's, you know, bothering those who are being demonstrated against.

Ah, Saudi Arabia, where it's better to lock girl children in a burning building than to let them escape, if escape means that they might see men that they're not related to.  I pray Allah exists, because then I'm going to get to watch as He holds the deaths of those 15 children to your account, and sends your "religious enforcers" straight to hell for being such horrible, hateful, backwards people.

Everywhere else in the Middle East is at least trying to make their country a better place for their citizens, even if they're shortsighted about the means.  Even Iran, stupid and blinkered as it inarguably has been, does better than Saudi Arabia.  The one nation in the world where I really wouldn't shed a tear at all if it got nuked.  By anyone.

I still find it ironic that 1.5 years waiting for a trial is bad in another country and 10 years in Gitmo doesn't provoke more outrage.

You do realize that we were "allies" with Saudi Arabia long before Obama, right? And, by pushing for green energy, Obama's been taking significant steps towards cutting off our dependency on foreign (particularly Saudi) oil...which would give us far, FAR more leeway to tell the Saudis to quit their shiat.

The only difference between Saudi Arabia and the US is that here- Corporations are the Government rather than Kings and Princes.

Seriously ? you call that pushing ? I call that wanking.

China is light years ahead of the USA on using and providing "green energy" (granted I know, they are a long way behind in stopping the use of fossil fuel burning but at least they make a half assed effort), Obama is pathetic, he has fewer problems and has had FAR less success. The dude is a wuce.

And before you start with the "b b but Republicans" - either lead or get the fark out the way pansy
