"if we won't do something about these ISIS people, they will not stop until they reach the borders of the western world, and by then it will be too late. "

Only if dipshits vote for and pass laws disarming the american citizens.

You want to know why Japan never tried an attack on the US mainland? They knew the citizens outgunned their army 40 to 1.

You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." - Soroku Yamamoto.

Actually technically he is right if we kill them all very fast.

nuke 80% of the middle east, full on carpet bomb every square mile with overlapping bursts and you will not have 2 more spring up. you will actually wipe them all out for good and not have any problems with middle eastern terrorisim.

The problem is surviving the 60 year nuclear winter afterwards.

Convert to Islam or die.

This is not, nor has it ever been a central tenet of Islam. This cannot be viewed in political or historical isolation.

"Convert to Christianity under Papal authority or die by red-hot poker" was a governing principal of church and state - at the center of Europe's most powerful empire, for nearly 200 years. It was never the message of Jesus, regardless of your belief in Christianity. But scripture and political expropriation of pseudo-theology made that it seem so.

I hope someday you have a daughter who marries a an African Muslim. You might be forced to reconsider many of the things that you "know" so assuredly.

"But thus far, the logitech harmony series is the only thing I've found that actually gets that job done at all and therefore is the best by default."

Try the real stuff. Control 4, Crestron and AMX all blow the harmony remote out of the water so badly it is not funny. Hell even the URC programmable remotes make a harmony look like a joke.

"and I'm not letting water nor fire run when I'm not home "

I do as well as million of home owners do. Fire is in my furnace and it's running right now with me not home. And my sprinkler system was running at 8am a full hour after I had left for work. Many times I will start a load of laundry on my way out of the house and let that run, million of people do this.

Dude, get over your paranoia.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
