They'll be looking for blunt root causes, while ignoring the millions of slow burns between cause and effect.
Our country lost it's marbles when all the angry old fat racist white men with goatees (seriously, shave and go on a diet!) realized that there really, really was a black guy running for President and created something called The Tea Party.

It's all been downhill from there...

Hmmm what have you got against goatees? Are you a beardless facist?
Anyways, the tea party came into existence during W's administration not Obama's.

Sure lets punish Tump while also fucking over the rest of the country. Yes, i know you'll say say Trump is the same way. I don't care. Stupid is non party specific stupid!

The Independent or libertarian party has never looked so good to me as they do now.
How is Europe and China continuing to honor the agreement “hurting our country” ?

Sunni is from the word "Sunnah", referring to the exemplary behavior of Mohammad. Sunni means "People of (Mohammad's) Tradition".

Shia means "Followers of Ali"

Upon Mohammad's death, the followers elected Abu Bakr as Mohammad's successor and the First Caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate. Ali's supporters claimed Ali as the rightful heir due to his blood tie as he was from Mohammad's own clan. They claimed the Mohammad had previously declared Ali as the successor, but Aisha (Mohammad's child bride, favorite wife, and closest confidante) disputed that claim. Many of the Hadiths were taken from Aisha's memory of her conversations with Mohammad.

Ali and/or his followers assassinated Uthman, the Third Caliph, and those followers declared Ali as the Fourth Caliph. Aisha said no way, raised an army and marched against Ali, thus creating the divide. Aisha was defeated, but as a widow of Mohammad, she was left unharmed and she led a life of preaching Mohammad's words, defending his memory and all the widows of Mohammad and the first three Caliphs, and began the tradition of Muslim women covering themselves. The death of Ali brought the end of the Rasidun Caliphate and what many claim to be the golden age of Islam.

Quote:
Edited for ancient history buffs. Roman Emperor Eagablus found or stole the Magic Stone and it is here today in the Grand Mosque of Mecca in the corner of the Kabala which they dance around and kiss on Muslim Day. The Magic Stone is a Meteorite.
It is spelled Elagabalus, and he was only referred to by that name after his death due to his break in Roman customs and religious traditions. He reigned as Marcus Aurelius Antonius Pius, stealing that name from the Emperor now known as Caracalla.

He neither found nor stole the stone that you are referring to, and it is not the same one found in Mecca. The particular stone that Elagabalus is associated was stored at the Temple of Elagabalus in Emesa Syria, where the future Emperor was serving as High Priest. Elagabalus was the Syrian adaptation of the Roman God known as Sol Invictus (Helios).

He had the stone brought to Rome after he became Emperor, and it was returned to Emesa after he was murdered. No one knows exactly what happened to the stone, but it is generally believed that it was smashed to bits when the temple was later converted to a Christian Church.

The Black Stone of Mecca is believed to have been taken from the Greek Temple of Artemis in Turkey.

I'm not saying that. This is what they said. My own fellow Americans. My own f*cking fellow Americans:

Isn’t this what states do when diplomatic partners breach solemn agreements, expose them to security risks and threaten to wreak havoc on their economies?

WTF!? My jadeness is nearly complete. The US is slowly turning on itself and i feel like a damn Cassandra!

Why the f*ck do i even care?

And don't forget Russia. I wonder if orange man will impose sanctions on Putin if he continues to abide by the deal, that would hurt the Russian economy?

Oh, wait a minute.

Obama's legacy will be that he was the bright spot between the two worst presidents in American History.

Are you? You seem to take a lot of time to post historical inaccuracies based on poor reading skills and comprehension after taking whatever is at the top of your google search.
