Would it matter? Really? Who cares? F*cking dumbass. We've lots of <insert whatever you want here> people who sit on their asses, do sh*t all with their lives and never vote. Ever questioned them?

According to my definition of American way of life, yes.

According to the definition of the moron who posted this, probably not, since it likely includes the baby jesus.

Plus don't forget all that they preserved of Greek mathematics and what they did contribute themselves- pretty necessary for the code for any iteration of Fark over the years.

I love it when a Republican pwns himself by demonstrating a pretty embarassing ignorance of basic farking world history.

 So you're saying that American Muslims invented distillation?  Because that's what the farking article is about... American Muslims.


Um, let's see.  My family is from SE Michigan.  So if NOTHING ELSE, American Muslims have allowed me to grow up with freaking awesome bakeries and restaurants and fresh juice bars and the best salad ever created (fattoush), and you know what, that's enough.

What have the Muslims ever done for us aside from coffee, cameras, experimental physics, chess, soap, shampoo, perfume/spirits, irrigation, crank-shaft internal combustion engine, valves, pistons, combination locks, architectural innovation (pointed arch -european gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.), surgical instruments, anesthesia, windmills, treatment for cowpox, fountain pens, our numbering system, algebra/trigonometry, modern cryptology, the 3 course meal (soup, meat/fish, fruit/nuts), crystal glasses, carpets, checks, gardens used for beauty and meditation instead of for herbs and kitchen, universities, optics, music, toothbrushes, hospitals, bathing, quilting, mariner's compass, soft drinks, pendulums, braille, cosmetics, plastic surgery, calligraphy, manufacturing of paper and cloth?

Let's not forget that it was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays (which lead to the invention of the camera), or a Muslim who first flew in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.  Or a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry, having invented distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration (he also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.)   It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari, who is known as the father of robotics. It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V's castle. It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes (a technique still used today.) It was a Muslim who actually developed inoculation (not Jenner and Pasteur) to treat cowpox. It was even Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round (500 years before Galileo.)

But, you know, they've really never did much of anything for us.

classy as shiat too

He got me wondering, what has Dave Agema ever done for us

Well in another brilliant Facebook post he called Russia's anti-gay propaganda law is "common sense"
http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2014/01/dave_agema_ ru ssian_anti-gay_pr.html

His anti-gay marriage remarks, including that gay people "want free medical because they're dying" young due to AIDS,
http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2013/12/dave_agemas _f ull_statements_pu.html


He was apparently at the Battle of dumbass Duck Show:
"Good for them," Agema wrote. "The LGBT Gestapo speech police will not succeed when families like them are Biblically solid. You are in our prayers. May A&E fall into the pit they dug for you. STAND!"
http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2013/12/dave_agema_ fi nds_kinship_with.html

In 2013, he faced calls to resign from the Republican National Committee after he posted extracts from an article entitled "Everyone Should Know These Statistics On Homosexuals" which claimed homosexuals lived a "filthy lifestyle", were responsible for 50 percent of U.S. murders and that many are pedophiles

For priests raping boys?

For muslim clerics not raping.  Just because it's not reported doesn't mean it's not happening.  The Catholic Church is just major because of the hypocrisy, the cover-up and the deep pockets.  Other Christian denominations are recently under fire for similar abuse but because of the lack of a strong central leadership it's not major news.


Reptilians have also taken over the government. Just because it's not reported doesn't mean it's not happening.
