ah, excuse me, what parts of the "sharia-like" laws would you like to implement?

Anyway, maybe Americans would prefer the Singaporean model? Where spitting on sidewalks gets you caned and stuff. I'm sure a ton of Americans would love to bring back caning. People are always saying our kids are misbehaved and bratty because we don't abuse them anymore.
Legal experts say banning Shariah law is superfluous; there is no mechanism by which any foreign criminal or civil code can trump U.S. laws. Business experts add that such a ban could hurt the image of domestic companies doing business overseas. Yet when Oklahoma voters got the chance to vote on State Question 755, the so-called "Save Our State Amendment," 70% approved it.
...implementation of Shariah law ranges from nominal to strict. In countries like Saudi Arabia, where there is little or no separation of secular and religious authority, courts of law may mete out punishments according to Shariah law as interpreted by imams.
omg, do you have anything else that has some substance to it? this is the kind of post i am talking about - i know this is your opinion but as far as i am concerned it is without any real input - what a waste of time - is there nothing new under the son?
