Some Good News

Here's some good news.

MINNEAPOLIS — Taxi drivers who refuse service to travelers carrying alcohol at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport face tougher penalties despite protests from Muslim cabbies who sought a compromise for religious reasons, officials said Monday.

Fuck you, your conpromise, and your religious reasons and the camel you rode in under. Your idea of a compromise is we do things your way.

The Metropolitan Airports Commission said new penalties were needed to ensure customers get safe and reliable taxi service, and voted to suspend a driver's airport taxi license for 30 days for the first offense and revoke it for two years for a second offense. The new penalties take effect May 11.

As far as I'm concerned, it should be revoked permanently on the first offense. And what's this May 11 bullshit? That's almost a month from now. Why not tomorrow?

Airport officials say more than 70 percent of the cabbies at the airport are Muslim, and many of them say Islamic law forbids them from giving rides to people carrying alcohol.

Well American law says that you can't do that. If you fuckheads have a problem with that maybe you should find another line of work or another country to do it in. Why not France? They let Moo-slimes push them around. Hell! They let everyone push them around.

Under the old rules, a driver who refused to transport someone carrying alcohol would be told to go to the back of the taxicab line. Airport officials said that since January 2002, there have been more than 4,800 instances of drivers' refusing to take alcohol-carrying travelers.

4800! That bullshit should have been stopped after the first offense!

Some Somalis who testified Monday urged commissioners to reject the new penalties and find some other solution.

I've got a solution! Why don't you dipsticks go back to Somalia? That solution works for me.

"We see this as a penalty against a group of Americans only for practicing their faith," said Hassan Mohamud, an imam and an adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of Law.

No dipshit! This is a group of assholes trying to force their religion on us. I'm really getting sick of buttwipes like you coming here from Somalia and Shitholestan and trying to force your customs on us. One of the reasons Somalia is such a shithole is because of Islam (Murdering infidels since the 7th Century.). You come here for a better life and then you try to institute the customs that fucked up your country. Jesus H. Christ! You people really piss me off! If this is a problem for you, get the fuck out of this country and go back to the shitholes you came from.

Now, can we fire the Moo-slime checkers at Target who refuse to scan bacon?

Denny, why aren't you in favor of a free market? Wouldn't the free market say that these entrepeneurs can take and reject whichever fares they want? By refusing fares, they would just be hurting themselves by denying them business.

Why are you in favor of this governmental regulation. Shouldn't we let the market settle this?

Where is your consistency?

Posted by: Sally on April 18, 2007 11:13 PM

Sally - As a good little liberal, aren't you upset that these people are discriminating? How would you feel if these cab drivers refused to pick up blacks? That would be racial profiling and we can't have that. You would be one of the first people calling for regulation. These same cab drivers also wouldn't transport blind people because of their seeing-eye dogs. Did you know that these drivers sometimes would stop before the destination and make the people get out of the cabs? What we have here are people trying to force their religion on us. If they want to do business, they need to cater to everyone. Isn't that the liberal way? Geez! You would think that you and I would be in perfect agreement on this.

Posted by: Denny on April 18, 2007 11:44 PM

Sally,

Perhaps you will take a slightly less favorable view of Islam when you learn something about it. For example, did you know that Moslem men may have four wives and as many mistresses as they care to have and can afford? Did you know that a Moslem woman's testimony is worth only half of a Moslem man's? Did you know that a Moslem woman has almost no right for divorce, but a Moslem man can divorce his wife just by telling her he's divorcing her? Did you know that it takes four male Moslem witnesses to confirm a rape? Did you know that if a woman makes a charge of rape that is unsubstantiated by witnesses, she is condemned as an adulteress and subject to being stoned to death? Did you know that no less an Islamic scholar than Ayatollah Khomeini condoned the sexual molestation of girls--even infant girls?

Are you really sticking up for people who treat women like this?

Moslems have no place in the West, and should stay in their countries. It is a grave error to allow into America people--like Moslems--whose core beliefs require them to destroy us, people whose core values are antithetical and hostile to our own.

Yes, I am intolerant. I'm intolerant of people who want to destroy my country and my way of life and replace it with a backwards, barbaric creed. Let them do that nonsense in their own countries!

Posted by: Squidley on April 19, 2007 12:06 AM

Denny,

Liberals don't need to be consistent the way we think of consistency. Their only consistency is the destruction of the West, which means anything that is anti-Western, anti-white, and anti-Christian is good, regardless of internal inconsistencies.

When I read about the Target Moslems refusing to scan bacon, I thought of what I would do: rip open the package and throw the bacon on the offending fan of the pedophile Mohammed. Of course, I'd be the one they'd throw into the hoosegow....

"Airport officials say more than 70 percent of the cabbies at the airport are Muslim, and many of them say Islamic law forbids them from giving rides to people carrying alcohol."

At an airport, no less? WTF is going on here?? So 70% of the 3rd-world dung beetles who drive cabs in the United States think Americans are going to put up with much more of their shit?

I don't like the idea of 70% mooselimb to begin with. I don't like the idea of mooselimb for that matter. Show me you are a "religion of peace!" Show me you want to assimilate! Show me you give a fuck about THE Country that puts up with your pissing and moaning while you continue to piss and moan about how bad you have it. WE are sick of your shit, you 3rd-world fuck!


Posted by: CharlieDelta on April 19, 2007 12:23 AM

sally, it seems that you like to come in here and make your point then leave without backing it up. i think that denny made a very valid rebuttal to your post. don't you have anything to say in response?

i know you've been attacked here before, but the repsonses to your disagreement this time all seem to be coherent and polite. how do you defend your position from the lucid points denny put forth in response to your (imho) insupportable position?

Posted by: archie on April 19, 2007 01:04 AM

OMFG hello to you Surrender Sally! Glad you made bail. I missed you.

Posted by: vetfromhell on April 19, 2007 01:06 AM

I agree wholeheartedly with what Denny posted regarding those cabbies in MN.

Seems, too, like a good idea to open the bacon and ask how they know it's bacon ...... and continue to ask until somebody goes to jail.

Wether I like it or not, agree with it or not, business in America knows nor respects any religion. I'm OK with that. The pharmacist that does not agree with me about birth control had damn well better just make the sale.

The local library that does not want me reading "Harry Potter" or "Song of the South" and therefore does not stock same is just as "Taliban" as those cab drivers.

Y'see, it's being "Taliban" about ANYthing that fries my goat. I subscribe to only one belief- system when it comes to business in America:

The Constitution.

Posted by: DanS. on April 19, 2007 01:35 AM

Perhaps airports could be declared "Religion Free Zones".

Posted by: Peggy U on April 19, 2007 02:05 AM

Maybe the civilised world could be declared a rag free zone.

Posted by: Murray on April 19, 2007 02:31 AM

Denny, not only do the cabbies want to have a choice of who they serve but they also want the airport to provide them with a place reserved for praying. Like a Mosque!

Posted by: gene Hall on April 19, 2007 06:52 AM

Socialist Sally.......

Lets expand your point......Bus Drivers would have the option to refuse passengers, even school bus drivers.What if a muslim bus driver were assigned to deliver Jewish children to a Jewish School, is it Ok to refuse for religious reasons? What about UPS or Fedex? By your definition should not they be allowed to refuse certain deliveries or shipments if they believe the shipment contains bacon or other pork products? How about the postal service? If they find mail to be delivered to your house which in their minds is offensive to their religious beliefs, is it OK to refuse to deliver it?

The obvious answer is No! When a company is in the business of providing a public service , the restrictions allowed for personal objection`s to take precedance over public accomodation is very limited to non-existant for a simple reason, the public need outweighs any personal consideration for the the driver or provider.

There are general operating guidelines which provide for certain exceptions, for example unruly obnoxious individuals can be denied cab service......But you better be able to document this via audio or visual tapes. The fact someone has alcohol, pork or whatever under their arm is not a valid reason to deny them service.

If these immigrants find the climate of free enterprise to be so objectionable, why do they not go back where they came from? Instead of insisting on we accomodating their own personal beliefs, is it not their responsibility to assimilate into our culture? Again, they always have the option to leave for whence they came from it to objectionable to assimilate into western culture.

Once again Sally, you have chosen to defend that which is undefendable in order to champion your liberal bias. Will you ever let common sense enter into your thought process?

Posted by: dudley1 on April 19, 2007 08:50 AM

The part of the whole article that bothered me is that they have an Imam teaching at a law school. Probably Sally's School. No wonder her world view is so badly skewered.
Sally, consider this, One of the portions of operation safe streets is that people who have been drinking obtain a ride from a taxi service, ensuring a safe solution vs a drunk driving. If the cabbies refuse to transport them, then they are placed in a position where driving drunk is a solution they might seek, and one I find dangerous. And yes, that defense has been used in court to fight DUI's already.

Posted by: Jeremy on April 19, 2007 09:15 AM

Socialist Sally:

If decision making was between good and bad and right and wrong, life would be a piece of cake. Unfortunately, some of the most important choices in life are not between good and bad or right and wrong. They are between bad and rotten and between wrong and evil.

The left is dissatisfied with, and intolerant over, anything that is less than perfect. Everything is either black or white.

The right recognizes that perfection is a worthy aspiration that is seldom met. It recognizes that there are degrees of bad and degrees of wrong and tries to minimize the impact that bad and wrong has on choices made.

Posted by: Art on April 19, 2007 10:00 AM

I see we all agree, more or less. My only disagreement with the eminently sensible responses to Sally's nonsense is this: Moslems do not belong in America. Period.

The policy (the 1965 Immigration Reform Act) that allowed them to come here in the first place is wrong. Of all the Republican candidates, only Tom Tancredo publically acknowledges that immigration is a problem. We have too many immigrants, especially illegal ones, and immigration--particularly non-white immigration--is slowly but surely destroying this country.

What to do? Simple.

1. Stop letting Moslems in.
2. Encourage the departure of those who are already here.

If we can stand up for our country, our rights, our way of life, our Constitution, then we can solve the Moslem problem.

GMAFB, Dan. When that Baptist Librarian has you thrown in jail for trying to read Harry Potter, you'll be right--until then, your comparison is demeaning and cheapens the meaning of words like "totalitarianism."

Posted by: Rick C on April 19, 2007 10:32 AM

Sally,

I would be interested in knowing how you feel about the Catholic adoption centers in Chicago that had to close down because they weren't granted religious exemption when it came to the city forcing adoption centers to let gay people adopt.

It's amazing how liberals on one hand can defend Islamofascism while on the other pursue the destruction of Christian charity. It's absolutely mind numbing.

Posted by: Lumpy on April 19, 2007 10:45 AM

shitholestan.........thats just beautiful Denny. I did not know about the bacon thing. I probably only buy bacon 2 or 3x per year, but I think my new happy fun time will be going to target to buy bacon, standing in the line of some Muslim and see if I can have some fun. I am from Texas. The deck is stacked in my favor.

Posted by: patrick on April 19, 2007 11:18 AM

Get ready to welcome 25,000 more muslim "friends" boys and girls. The State Department announced earlier this week they'd be bring 25,000 Iragi's here for some reason or another. I guess we need to fill some quota or they are ACLU affiliate members.

Posted by: JP on April 19, 2007 11:28 AM

Holy crap Dan! You and I are in total agreement. Somewhere pigs are flying. The Harry Potter example you cited is known as censorship, which I do not agree with. That woman in Gwinnett County who wanted to ban Harry Potter books is an idiot. What next? Snow White? There's a witch in that fairy tale. Hansel and Gretel? GMAFB! They're children's books (altho' I read them as does my sister.)!

Posted by: Denny on April 19, 2007 12:58 PM

My question is: Do you get your fare back when you are at the Minneapolis Airport, you take a taxi to your destination, pay the driver your fare, get out of the cab, whip out a Colt 45 and a fifth of Jack and shake them at the driver?

Posted by: PeterH on April 19, 2007 01:41 PM

JP: I am concerned. Are these muslims people who have been helpful to our cause over there? Are they translators and such, and their families, who are being offered sanctuary? Is this in advance of a scale back or pullout of troops that would leave them vulnerable to retaliatory attacks?

Posted by: PeggyU on April 19, 2007 01:51 PM

Stop calling her Socialist Sally, shes a stalker. Stalker Sally.

Secretly she pines for Denny and wants to be a conservative but doesn't have the balls for it.

Why the hell else would she be sticking around taking the mother of all thrashings so regularly?

Posted by: Murray on April 19, 2007 03:39 PM

If we can stand up for our country, our rights, our way of life, our Constitution, then we can solve the Moslem problem.

Squidley, good post as usual. But what you are implying is that the people of this country once again feel patriotism, pride and respect for what we have been given thanks to our forefathers. Unfortunately, all those things are becoming taboo in today's society. Ask a liberal if we are the greatest country on earth, their answer will be no, ask them if they are proud to be an American, they will say no. Ask them if they will fight to keep this country the best in the world, they will say no again. Watched Saving Private Ryan last night and all I could think about is what if we were in the same situation today. We'd get clobbered thanks to the liberal media, the "sheeple" that follow them unquestioning, and the politicians that are more concerned about their own coffers rather than what we need to do to maintain any semblence of what we had become and were supposed to be. The fact that anyone can even question whether these cabbies are in the right or wrong is a testament to the shithole we are becoming.
DanS, you the man. Not only do I agree with your post, but you actually made sense in the way you presented it. Kudos to you. I argued with a client in my office the other day who tried to tell me letting my seven year old girl watch Harry Potter was going to be a sure way to hell for her. I literally laughed in her face at the prospect. I think she was too dumb to realize I was laughing at her.

Posted by: Ray on April 19, 2007 06:45 PM

Hey ask me, I'm better qualified to answer those questions. I have objectivity.

Is America the greatest country on earth?

Yes, next question. I've seen lots of them so thats an easy call.

Am I proud to be an American?

No, mainly because I'm not an American. I might be if given the opportunity but its so damn hard to get in legally and I don't speak Spanish.

Will I fight to keep this country the best in the world?

In exchange for a green card sure. Kind of old and soft round the middle but I still know which end of an M16 gets aimed towards the bad people.

If any of your soft cock liberal cry babies want to swap give them my email address. They wont like the tax rates though.

Posted by: Murray on April 19, 2007 10:11 PM

Murray-
You may not be an American on paper, but you are in your heart. I thank you for that! We need more like you who actually appreciate our way of life instead of shitting on it.

As far as Silly goes-
I think she has the balls for it, just not the will, or the honesty. Hell, she had the balls to tell me that she donated an entire PAYCHECK to Soldier's Angels, yet couldn’t put up a buck or two from Offic Depot to scan and email me her "acknowledgement" letter from her supposed donation. What a joke!

Hang in there Murray. We need more citizens like you!

I hope her "paycheck" is more than a buck or two...

Posted by: Murray on April 20, 2007 12:07 AM

Ray,

You are correct. I want Americans to go back to American values, like patriotism, pride in ourselves and our country, and confidence in our morality. Going back to these values would require abandoning liberalism. I made the leap; most of the commenters here have, too.

We have to keep spreading the word, letting people know that there is another approach besides liberalism. We have to reject the liberals' assumptions. We have to stop letting them frame the debate. We can do it! Unlike the Brits, who are dead as a people, we still have a large portion of the population who are proud of this country, not ashamed of it. We just have to continue to expose the lies of liberalism, and, with luck and the smile of Providence, we will once again be the majority.

We can get our country back!

Posted by: Squidley on April 20, 2007 02:23 AM

Apparently there will be a job fair offered to allow taxi drivers not wishing to continue being drivers the opportunity to find other jobs at the airport. I have an idea, offer them jobs as bartenders or stock workers filling airport shop shelves of bottles of alcohol or...... hit the road and go to somewhere else!

Posted by: George on April 20, 2007 08:03 AM

WTF. Why are we allowing these camel jockeys to be anywhere near our airports of all places. If we HAVE to have them here and they HAVE to work here (insert deportation opinions here), shouldn't they be in the bowels of the subway system, off the coast on an oil rig, or some other "out of my way" location. Christ, when are we going to stop being so PC and just say what WE ALL feel and just won't. We don't want them around. Period.

Sally cannot even finish a thread, much less college. Sally is a quitter. Cut and run is deeply ingrained in her mind. Surrender as well. Path of least resistance. Easy way out. She is unable to formulate a thought of her own. She just parrots the same lame liberal bullshit ad disappears. On second thought, I apologize to the parrots of the world.

I go to the airport here in MN, there aren't cabs parked out front. You can't park in front of our airport, it's too fucked up. All you can do is stop and go and then circle around. It's a no brainer. The story of this on the news doesn't fly here one teensy bit. They are bitching because they are mooseslimes who won't drive white people. People don't get off a plane drunk or carrying booze. the moosers dun wanna work and still get paid for sitting at the SuperAmerica station right next to the airport. They are pissed that people are getting on zee train. It's much ado about nothing really.
