LC Maxxdog gave us the heads-up to the complete collapse of sanity at one of the world’s leading computer manufacturers, Dell. After a group of stinking Somali Mooselimp contract workers Rent-a-Jihadis™ walked off the job, demanding they be given special consideration to stop working 5 times per day, turn towards the Saudi Shithole™ of Mecca and pray to their Pedophile Profit™ (Pigs Pee Upon Him), Dell, under pressure from the terrorist front group CAIR, caved in and is going to give them everything they wanted and, get this, SEND THE PLANT MANAGERS TO “SENSITIVITY TRAINING”.

Muslim contract employees at the Dell Inc. plant in Nashville reached a settlement with the company on issues related to a dispute over prayer in the workplace, a national Islamic civil rights advocacy terrorist front group announced yesterday in Washington.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations Dhimmitude said the 31 Muslim employees, who left work last month in a disagreement over Islamic prayers, will be reinstated, receive back pay, and be granted religious accommodation. Managers also will also receive additional training on existing religious accommodation policies and practices.

Instead of unceremoniously being given pink slips and told to pound sand and go back to the fucking cesspool from whence they crawled…

Other terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Kinda hard for the Dell officials to talk for very long with those Mooselimp cocks stuffed down their throats…

The settlement came following a meeting yesterday between representatives of the council, Dell, the Muslim workers, the Metro Human Relations Commission and Spherion Corp., the company that provided the workers to Dell.

”We are pleased with both the terms of the settlement and with the cooperative attitude of all parties in the negotiations,” CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said. …

Translation: “We are pleased that the Infidel pig-dogs have chosen to bow down before the sword of Allah and save us the dirty work of severing their heads from their bodies. It’s more fun to extract jizzya and humiliate them for all of our Muslim brethren around the world to see.

…”We thank everyone from around the world who contacted Dell to express their support for reasonable religious accommodation dhimmitude in the workplace.”

We’re sure that Dell is going to be hearing a LOT more from people who think that giving into a terroristic religious ideology isn’t such a good idea…

Most of the affected employees are from Somalia.

Then let them go back to Somalia and work in a place that will allow them to shut down production five times per day to pray.

Abdirizak Hassan, executive director of the Somali Community Center of Nashville, said the workers walked out of the company’s Nashville plant last month because they were not allowed time for prayers.

And all of the Christians, Jooos & Hindus walked out, too, because they weren’t allowed to stop production and perform their religious rites inside the plant.

Oh, wait. That didn’t happen.

We’ll be expecting Dell to install confessionals, baptismals, an exact replica of the Wailing Wall & a working scale model of the Ganges River within the next week or there is going to be a national call for a boycott of their products.

F.E.T.E.

    Are these guys working an average 8 hour 9-5 day? ‘Cos if so they only need to stop for prayers twice, once at 12:44 and again at 16:31. The 12:44 one should be around about lunchtime anyway.

    I see this as a great big fuss over nothing. If a devout Catholic asked his bosses to provide a meat-free main meal in the canteen on Friday’s and the boss told him to “pound sand”, I’d concede the boss’s right to do so but I’d have no problem calling him an asshole. From what I can tell, these Somali guys weren’t asking for a lot. You’re just making a fuss because you absolutely fucking hate all Muslims.

    Oops…sorry. Don’t quite know how that happened.

    Are these dudes working a traditional 9-5 eight hour work day? Because if they are, they only need to stop for prayers twice, once at 12:44 and again at 16:31, and the 12:44 prayer session would probably fall during their lunch hour anyway.

The fact is that, while there are a small minority of Muslims working actively to kill you and a rather larger number who would applaud if they succeeded, the majority of Muslims just want to get along, especially those living in America.

    Or I WOULD tell them, except that I can’t find an email address, let alone a corporate address, for Dell. I don’t want to send mail to tech/customer support. It wouldn’t get where it needs to go.

    And the second set of prayers? I’ll concede that if Dell gives smokers 15 minutes twice a day to smoke, then the Muslims should be able to take 15 minutes to pray, but not necessarily when THEY decide. But what’s next? Special prayer rooms? Special wash rooms? Men and women segregated? Why are they even working for Dell? I thought they were prohibited from working for infidels.

    The muzzies don’t have to pray at the appointed times. They can hold off and make up those prayers later. More of the slow, steady push towards sharia. I wonder at what point we push back?

    Ah, but the Qu’ran prescribes quite specific times for prayer. To concede the necessity for prayer breaks is to concede the necessity for breaks at certain times, because breaks at any other times just aren’t prayer breaks. Muslim’s aren’t commanded to face Mecca and pray at 14:00pm, so a prayer break at that time is just pointless.

    But what’s next? Special prayer rooms? Special wash rooms? Men and women segregated? Why are they even working for Dell?

    Well, if men and women were segregated we’d have a problem worth worrying about. I don’t see any evidence that allowing Muslim’s prayer breaks will necessarily lead to anything like that.

    I thought they were prohibited from working for infidels.

    That depends upon which interpretation of Islam one follows.

    Yusufzai said many Taliban fighters had been unhappy with Dadullah, saying he maligned the militant group with brutal beheadings, a rash of kidnappings and boastful videos that starred himself shooting weapons and walking in Afghanistan’s mountains.

    “They thought he had become too big for his shoes,” Yusufzai said.

    My point exactly. No reason Dell should have to schedule work time around the Koran. And, of course, should all the Catholics demand that they get time for all of their church holidays (like Ash Wednesday), you don’t have any problem with that, right?

    And, all the Jews have to leave before five on Friday afternoons, so that they can go home early to get ready for Seder (or whatever that is). That’s okay too, right?

    In every single job I’ve ever held, the full parameters of the environment are known before I even started looking for a pen.

    In a free society, free people may walk freely out the door to seek or start their own fortune.
    Never attempt to screw with that.
    If I was interviewin’ for a mosk groundskeeper gig, and couldn’t handle goin’ bunzup from time to time,, ‘reckon’ the job would eventually wind up with someone who could. Me, a kaffir standing up, hummin’ Charlie Daniels with all that mullah’s glurg goin’ on?

    My point exactly. No reason Dell should have to schedule work time around the Koran.

    Actually your point, as I understood it, was that since smokers got two 15 minute breaks a day, it was unfair to deny Muslims prayer breaks, but that Dell shouldn’t be forced to schedule these breaks at certain times. My point is that a prayer break at any other time than 16:31pm is not a prayer break. It’s just a waste of time. Conceding the necessity for a prayer break, which you did, is exactly the same as conceding the necessity for a break at 16:31pm, as that is the only time during a work day (apart from 12:44pm, which would be during their lunch hour anyway) when Muslims are obligated to face Mecca to pray.

    You either have to concede that Muslims should get a prayer break at 16:31pm, or deny them the prayer break altogether.

    No. Smokers can’t always take a break whenever they want to go smoke. They often have to wait until the workload decreases, or the boss says they can go. What I’m getting at is if the Koran say prayer time is at 12:51…suppose there’s a big meeting scheduled for that time? Dell should just say…um…sorry, we can’t have the meeting. The muslims gotta pray?

    Sorry. The smokers would have to wait. The prayers should have to, also.

    I see this as just a great big fuss over nothing.

    Pre-cisely. NOTHING. Their work should make as much accomodation for them as businesses that are open on Saturdays, and/or Sundays here do for their practicing Jewish/Christian workers - which, with some exceptions = nada. I should know, I’ve missed more Sundays and holy days than you can shake a stick at. If you don’t like the hours, you can always get yourself another job that accomodates your particular needs. No one is holding a gun to their head, forcing them to work at DELL.

    As far as the non-meat issue; adjusting the cafeteria’s menu doesn’t cut into work time. However, I have some family and friends who are practicing Catholics, and not a one of them would feel that discommoded about bringing their own food for their OWN religious needs.

    *Fwiw, I don’t think extra breaks should be given to smokers either. Work is for work.

    Believe me mate, if 1.2 billion Muslim’s wanted you dead, you would be

    Lovely. Pretty much if 1.2 billion…ANTS wanted someone/thing dead, it would be, too. Sheesh…

    The fact is that, while there are a small minority of Muslims working actively to kill you and a rather larger number who would applaud if they succeeded,

    How comfortably you trot out that statement. Almost - proudly. I can’t think of a small minority of anybody I know actively working to kill YOU, (in fact I’m certain there AREN’T any) let alone be so foul and certifiably inclined as to cheer them on. Take up arms against Americans, (or, more likely strap on a bomb of some sort as such terrorists are wont to do,) however, and the gloves are off.

    I don’t even ‘fucking hate all Muslims’, either. They’re people first. I do revile their so-called ‘religion’.

    Enough of this. I’ve got much more important things to worry about, like those 3 soldiers that are missing/taken in Iraq. God be with them.

    No. Smokers can’t always take a break whenever they want to go smoke.

    And Muslim’s can’t take a break whenever they want to go and pray. They can only take a break at 16:31pm.

    What I’m getting at is if the Koran say prayer time is at 12:51…suppose there’s a big meeting scheduled for that time?

    I’m guessing that Dell would simply choose not to schedule meetings for that time.

    Look, I know full well that allowing these Muslim workers prayer breaks would have a knock on effect. It would entail making other small changes to the way this factory operates, such as ensuring important meetings don’t clash with prayer times. But businesses make concessions to their employees all the time to make them happier and more productive, and all these concessions have a knock on effect which alters the way companies do business. At the end of the day, Dell wouldn’t have given these concessions if it wasn’t ultimately the most profitable thing to do under the circumstances.

    I’ve got a question….

    Just WHAT in the flying fuck is ANYONE from that shithole called Somila doing in the US anyhow?

    Does not anyone remember Blackhawk Down with the seething hordes of these ANIMALS dragging our soilders thru the streets? Why is a Somilan ANY SOMLIAN even ALLOWED in the US after that, let alone work there..that boggles my mind it really does…oh wait *Spew Alert* they are probably “doing jobs no Americans will do”..I forgot.

    And BTW Dell… I’m a certified DELL tech, I handle a SHIT LOAD of your products… everything from the your most basic desktop to a high end EMC SAN…perhaps this is why out a batch of almost 60 new BRAND NEW IN THE BOX Power Edge servers I just got… 5 of the blasted things have had severe problems.

    Like what you ask?? Oh I dunno like Entire RAID’s just going *poof* gone!! Lost… an entire Array not a fucking reason in the world for it…just *poof*…Buh Bye…Adios…Hey! maybe it had to PRAY eh!?!

    Had to rebuild the entire server…still scratching my head over that one lemme tell you..

    Well they might find out bending over and taking it up the ass from mooselimbs might not be as profitable as they thought. I know I won’t buy from them and will reccommend against it to everyone I speak with.

    Open letter to Michael Dell:

    Sir:

    I own and operate 3 Dells in my home office and have purchased several for other family members over the years.

    Dell has just lost a loyal customer. One which will not return unless management returns to their senses and reverses their decision with regards to the demands of their Mohammedan employees.

    This is America - the promised land. The promise is to give each citizen and immigrant the OPPORTUNITY to be AMERICANS, thereby improving their lot in life and for successive generations.

    That means compliance with our laws, loyalty to the nation first, then family, then whatever belief system you may have and learning to comport oneself as an AMERICAN.

    America has never and shall never alter it’s laws and customs to accomodate a RELIGION or belief system that is alien to our way of being. I would suggest you reconsider the actions of your company in light of the priciples this nation was founded upon and recognize the danger implicit in this corporate decision.

    Sincerely, your former customer.

    Show me PROOF that they just want to get along. Show me where any American muslim has DENOUNCED the killings both here and abroad and has shown support for Israel.

    Good one, me too.

    Dell capitulated. We’ll see how profitable it is when it all hits the fan. They won’t be getting a DIME from me, that’s for sure.

    But the benefit is that you know who they are, and the position is perfect. Once they’re in their position, shoot them in the back of the head, roll them up in their rug, and throw them in the dumpster out back.

    amen to that my friend, if the islamobastages want to stick their asses up in the air and pray to a false pedophile god then they can go back to the turd world sewer that they crawled out of.

    I don’t have a problem with Dell accommodating their employees, that’s their business.

    I DO have a problem with them bending over for a bunch of spoiled brats walking off work to get their way. I DO have a problem with said spoiled brats for not asking nicely. I DO have a problem with senthitivity training (Reeducation Camps) for management to “understand” the religion of piss better. I guess management will have to attend shul as well, or don’t Jooos rank preferential treatment in the eyes of the corporate dhimmis at Dell? I do ALSO have a problem with strikers not only getting all they want as a result of their temper tantrum but also getting back pay for the time they refused to work.

    And finally, anything, ANYTHING that is in any way remotely connected to a terrorist front organization is tainted. You don’t negotiate with terrorists and their supporters, you exterminate them.

    That being said, Dell has a right to bend over and be a bunch of cowardly dhimmis, I can’t demand that they grow a pair and become anything but the craven lickspittles that they are.

    And I have a right to deny them my business for the rest of my life.

    Unbelievable. I was thinking about buying a Dell laptop in the near future.

    I desperately need a system upgrade, and any consideration I had for buying Dell just went out the door.

    If I don’t break down and go to Wally World (yeah, I’m so outdated that all I can use are the drives), I’ll be doing some shopping here in the near future.

    HOW HERO HELPED TO STOP PLOT

    Throughout the 90-minute-long tape, above the booming gunfire at a Pennsylvania target range, the jihadists could be heard screaming “God is great!”
    The two employees “freaked out,” their co-worker recalled.
    At first, the teenage clerk didn’t know what to do, his pal said.
    “Dude, I just saw some really weird s-,” he frantically told his co-worker. “I don’t know what to do. Should I call someone or is that being racist?”

    That’s fucking right. CAIR and DemCong have gotten most american’s fearful that speaking up will be deemed racist. Can’t argue with them. can’t turn in suspicious behaviour…. p.c. will eventually kill us all.

    The good thing about computers is that operating systems are platform-agnostic, so you aren’t locked into a single hardware provider (The Dell-ification of schools and businesses notwithstanding).

    If we object to a company and/or its policies, we can go somewhere else, or even better, build our own.

    That’s what free people get to do, don’t ya know?

    How about if muslims start treating women like human beings throughout the world, then they can pray all fucking day and not even have to work. They can just take the day off and pray instead, we can pay them to do that.
    How does a muslim get sleep if he has to pray every 3 hours? Oh, that’s right, they don’t pray during THEIR time!
    All this hoopla of what Dell has to go through is just shouting to companies to NOT HIRE mUSLIMS.
    Too late, muslims, America DOES hate you. You will soon hear the voices of support for your ‘religion of peace’ dying off, and you will have to go BACK to somalia, afghanistan, etc…and see how far your 5 hr workdays take you.
    I’ve seen what this disgusting religion has done to London, and I highly doubt Americans will bend over to willingly.

    Christians at Dell, I call upon you to make good use of the daily prayer breaks to pray. Pray that God opens your co-workers eyes to the beauty and love and freedom of salvation through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We always wonder who is not in the book of life, now you can see plainly who is not a Christian and pray for them by name. Do not waste this opportunity, many people’s salvation my depend on your prayers. No, I’m not being sarcastic, but sincere.

    BTW, a “devout Catholic” wouldn’t ask for anything extra. Devout Catholics helped BUILD America. As a former devout Catholic, let me tell you, we would never have the cheek to sulk like that at work.
    We even work on Sundays, we go to Mass before or after work, or the evening before.
    We don’t have diet restrictions except no meat on Good Friday, and believe me, we would pack a lunch. If we found we needed a day or more off for religious reasons, we take vacation time.
    I could understand a muslim wanting a holy day off that isn’t a Christian holy day, since as a Christian nation, we already have those days off….but that’s it. Stop biting the hands that feed STFU, get back to work making crappy computers. It’s already hard enough to work with you stinky bastards, why make it worse?

    We’ve already known for some time that Dell doesn’t take kindly to lawful firearm owners. It’s too bad it’s come to this. I suppose I’ll be refraining from purchasing or recommending Dell products. My 5+ year-old Inspiron 8100 is still functional (after a replacement optical drive) but is ready for retirement (my mom wants it). There’s no way in hell I’ll ever purchase anything from HP as their overall product quality has nose-dived into the shitter.

    When I have money again shortly following my graduation this August (it’s about fucking time!) I’ll be shopping around for a nice laptop. I want a big screen and SLI. Options? I’m thinking that Hypersonic may be an option.

    I am a devout member of the Church of John Moses Browning.

    The XPS I had easily replaced a desktop, but at $3300 Canadian dollars, it still wasn’t remotely as fast as my $2300 desktop. Plus, a windows-based laptop with any power makes it way too impractical. The laptop was thick, heavy, ran really hot. It was beautiful to look at, but that’s it.
    I’m not brand-name fan. I still think for the dollar, PC’s are the way to go for desktop, but for laptop, Mac is simply the better product.
    Currently running Vista 64-bit with 4 GB RAM and a KILLER cpu, I find it very similar to OS-X. On a laptop, however, 4 GB RAM will cost you about $1500. That’s why I would opt for Mac - cheaper, faster, thinner, runs cooler, more stable.

    Jaybear,
    I used screw together athlon towers, overclock dualies till they smoked,,to work in higher res and render faster for autodesk 3ds14 (remember dos?), and as a universal clock to compare the machine’s speed as loaded, we’d render a file that was included in the 3d software called gearduck.3ds,, into a 720×480 uncompressed .avi. In the lights, switch raytrace on.

    That was our benchmark, you can make your own benchy thing, render something diff,,Just note the render parameters, what the render time is, then try a couple of things with the machine you have:

    See what the speed is with your firewall/antivirus switched on or off.

    Crammin’ a buncha memory hog software into a graphics machine, then running net-security can make a speedy one drag ass.

    That’s why I keep the oldest (slowest) machine with the best security for the net, ‘run the others without antivirus, unfettered.
    Cheap.

    I taught there full time in the Animation dept until 2004 when I left to pursue a freelance career. I was invited back to teach an introductory modeling and animation class to the game programming students and have been doing that ever since.

    If you’re interested in teaching college level 3D animation classes in a very very intense environment (matching the work level in the industry) let me know….perhaps I can kick in the door a little.

    As for the computer recommendation, I would like to stay with a laptop as I do a lot of running…either for school work or for freelance work and am always hauling my laptop with me. It’s good for working directly with clients, as they can see the project take shape and actually feel like they have a part in it.

    As for laptops, there’s always Acer, Sony, Gateway, Lenov

    Yep, I recently bought this Acer Ferarri laptop. Its a lean meaan little machine.

    I just happened to be about to replace all the servers for a local company, we were going with either Dell or IBM, looks like the choices just went down to IBM.

    I’m sure as hell not buying a Dell in the future.

    Okay, we all have Dells (my parents, sister, and I have desktop Dells that my dad got for dirt-cheap at work), but I am going to get my crap off that thing and transfer it onto my “new” Gateway laptop. Good riddance to that piece of junk anyway.

    I don’t WANT their proprietary crap. I want what I want, nothing more, nothing less, and that’s why I still “roll my own.”

    Farkin’ pre-fabbed, cruddy, slow shite.

    HP is the worst for that. On a healthy XP machine, do a CTRL/ALT/DLT and look at the processes running. Should be less than, say, 28 on a healthy machine with antivirus running.
    I did that on a friend’s new HP desktop, I’m talking directly from the store - 75 running processes….and they wonder why their machines are slow? There’s nothing like a blank slate - a clean install and no proprietary shit.

    HP is the worst for that.

    Tell me about it. My first experience with store-bought HPs was when friend and neighbor was complaining about his and wondered if I’d come over to take a look at what was slowing it down, since it was brand new and everything.

    I have never in my life seen that much useless crap running in the background, it’s a fookin’ wonder that it would run anything other than that unholy load of system-hogging shite.

    Seriously. If you have a CompUSA, BestBuy or such nearby with HPs (or any other of the pre-fab crap-boxes) running software that you’ve run on your own homegrown box, go try them out just for the sheer fun of it, PARTICULARLY the ones advertising the latest processors, graphics cards etc. You’ll find that those assclown manufacturers are perfectly capable of taking what ought to be a decent machine and turning it into a narcoleptic donkey with their built-in crapware.

    I agree here, a pretty workable soultion to some of the major vendors overload is simply before you even use the damn thing, wipe and build the OS and whatever applications you wish. (You did ask for a re-installtion disk didn’t you!?!?)

    Also….Learn to “SLIPSTREAM” an OS disk…this will save you many a heaqdache with drivers and applications.

    Currently I have Two Dells, an XPS desktop at home, a Latitude D820 I carry, and then my gaming machine here in Q8 based on AMD.

    All three of them run custom built OS systems dependent on what each machine primary purpose is.

    Does it suck to have to do that, yep you bet and probably not for the faint of heart.

    By far the fastest of the bunch is obviously the gamining machine, but it’s been hand built for performance.

    Word to the wise about home built computers; if you select carefully, do your research and talk to people with the expereience doing customs builds, you can build a machine that will kick ANY vedors product’s ass performance wise and do it just as cheaply…an Identical XPS with the SLI and all the goodies as my gaming rig will set you back some 3,000.00 or more.

    The box I am typing this on will outscore it hands down on most bench marks, tears thru any 3D game , DOOM3, FarCry etc with out batting so much as a nanolash, and I’m about 2,300.00 dollars into it. That’s with Twin 512 Vid cards in SLI, dual core AMD, 2 gigs of hi-perf RAM, & 6OO Gig RAID 5 based on SATA.. Ask Dell or another vendor to build something like that and you’re looking at 4 grand or more.

    Anyhow, The XPS serves the wife’s basic surfing needs back home, I haven’t really done too much to it, and the Latitude D820 is on it’s first incarnation of a custom OS build in XP. The laptop was about as irrating as could be with the build Dell put on there, so it immediatly got wiped.

    Also, I’ve noticed a lot of machines coming with Norten Internet security from Dell, HP, etc, and IMHO that is almost 50% of the problem right there I dumped that for a CA software AV suite and the laptop is a completely different machine now. Best part is CA’s software for the first year is FREE…

    I’m sure to take a blast from a lot of people I suppose but Norton is a memory hog like nothing I ever seen, it’s a great product but there’s a tradeoff as it seems to suck down more then it’s average share of resources. Add in the fluffy nonsense like Dell’s Digital Jukebox, etc, and the machine is just a dog.

    That’s damned good to know right there, I routinely go in and kill what I think are useless processes but I have a couple of questions in this area, and since you seem to be pretty savvy in this area I’ll show my stupidity and ask ‘em:

    1….Is there any way to know which processes are absolutely necessary and which aren’t?

    2….Is there an easy way to set processes so ONLY the ones that are necessary are the ones that the computer boots up with?

    Damn, I switched to Vista, but otherwise, I could give you a screenshot of mine, maybe someone here can help you. My first recommendation - dump Norton. I used to love it, now I use AVG. If you have a router, no need to buy a firewall outside of the XP one.
    What I did originally was format my hard drive, put on all the necessary stuff, then took a screenshot of the running processes. Anything I added after that, I knew I could get rid of.
    When I reboot, which is maybe once a week, I usually shut down iPodService/iTunes…the rest I use. You CAN go into Advanced Services in XP (sounds advanced, but quite simple), and stop things from running upon startup.
    I tend to kill my problems with a RAM overkill, but after years of not having the luxury, I learned what I could and could not kill.
    You can’t hurt your computer beyond a reboot by shutting stuff down one by one and seeing if it was necessary, so try that. I’d love to go on more, but I don’t want to fill this page. If no one else cares about the ongoing off topic stuff, I would be glad to answer any questions you may have and give any advice.

    The big slowdown on my HP laptop I got on Black Friday was the Antivirus/firewall/spyware protection (Symantec, IIRC) that was installed- of course, it was only a 90-day demo… on day 91 it was gone and my laptop sped up considerably.

    Well, shit…as I type this on my Dell (ARGH!) :cool2_tb:, I’m reminded of a spectacular display of stupidity like this from when I was in the military, stationed in Turkey. We had two GIs who were converts to the Religion of Piss™ who wanted a special PRAYER ROOM set up in the office (notably, not one of the Turkish local nationals even thought to impose their stupid religion on everyone else in the office–only the idiot American converts). Our testicular-challenged Captain said “yeah, sure,” and set it up for these assholes.
    Cue Beth: I went and asked when I’d be able to set up my Satanist altar (HELL NO I am not a Satanist–it’s the principle, of course). You think he went for that shit? Not no but HELL no, and HELL yes I raised a stink about it. (This was seven years before 9/11, mind you.) I never did get that devil-worship ritual room set up, either, but they didn’t get their goddamned bang-head-on-floor-room in our US Government office, either–until I PCS’d back to the States. (Which was also when the testicular-challenged Captain gave one of my airmen approval to wear a motherfucking headscarf in uniform too–another thing I said “Fuck No” to, unless she got approval from the Secretary of the Air Force or Defense.)

    Stupid dirt-rimming motherfucker. I’m still pissed about it all these years later.

    (Fortunately, I worked for a prior enlisted 1LT who was way smarter and cooler than the stupid Captain and he always backed me up, so I never got dinged for insubordination.) :cool2_tb:

    Anyone switching TO islam these days, IMO, must either be desperately seeking some kind of identity, or have some deep hatred for women.
    Look at Cassius Clay, who I think is a superb human being and one of the best athletes of all time…he was poor and a bonafide victim of racism. While he was certainly intelligent, he wasn’t nearly as brilliant as he thought he was…yet he was quite insecure, angry and mysogynistic. What better way to go his own way, find identity, get back at the white man, find some stability, and not have to worry about women being wretched to him? Convert to islam!
    Now he has the white man hating him, he has his ‘identity’, his stability, and he can do whatever he wants to/with women without any guilt at all. Deep down, muhammed ali is no more a muslim than you or I. He’s got to run with the identity he built for himself. Lots of these ‘converts’ end up doing this as a fad, a rebellious statement, only to find themselves in a big steaming pile of support from other ‘converts’. Usually the weak-minded, weak-willed or socially inept…any way you slice it, I don’t buy this spiritual about-face these assholes pull for a second.
    Pray on your own time. An 8 hr workday with a 1 hr lunch in there isn’t too much to ask, is it? Is it prayer you really want? No, it’s a statement. An arrogant statement. allah will forgive you if you’re not ass-in-the-air, facing mecca - whisper ‘death to america’ under your breath while you work, it should have the same effect.

    Ah Beth, you sound like an NCO after my own heart. But since I was a MSgt, the Captain was below me in importance and damned well better pay attention. :wink_ee:

    We had a similar issue with the local contract employees at the little site I was at in the central mountains. Ramadan was hell on us as they refused to do much more than wander the site with their worry beads and draw a paycheck while bemoaning the fact they didn’t get enough from the Americans to make the trip to Blecchah. We found out a way to take care of the fact that none of our support services were working (you remember, the SOFA required locals be hired to take care of the infrastructure stuff). WE DID IT OURSELVES! Then Air Force guys and American contractors on the site took care of everything from the plumbing to the cooking, and was there ever hell raised by the local “union” as soon as Ramadan was over and we tried to dump some of the dead wood from the contract. Didn’t happen, but neither did all that wailing and bashing of breast either.

    Do I hate all Muslims? All TRUE Muslims, you’re damn right. As “true” believers of the faith, they adhere to the demand from the moon god that they convert or KILL all non-believers and infidels. Sounds like you had one of the personality poor airmen we get that are so easily lead by outside sources they can’t see the error of their ways. As for the 1.2 billion you want to toss about as a number, Muzzy, all that reminds me of is I got to get to the reloading bench.

    Why not state when people are hired that the factory is a secular environment that doesn’t provide prayer breaks for anyone? I’m not a great fan of employers compromising productivity by pandering to any special interest group. If the workplace is safe, and the working hours reasonable, then that’s good enough.

    If you choose to work there, you accept the terms of employment. If the terms of employment don’t suit you, quit.

    I don’t agree that all muslims want to kill non-believers. Mostly they have similar hopes, dreams and aspirations as anyone else. The ones who want to take things to the level of violence can be dealt with. If there’s one thing the last decade has taught us, it’s that numbers mean nothing.

    I’ve worked at a Dell plant in Nashville when a bunch of Somali temps from Spherion walked out in protest over Dell cutting out their five prayer breaks. The issue Dell had was that they weren’t ever actually praying, they were outside drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes while their coworkers were all still working. Dell got fed up and said “No more prayer breaks,” and the Muslim males said, “This is an insult to Islam!” and led a walkout.

    Never cared for Dell computers, anyway. I have mine actually custom-built, from hand-picked, top-of-the-line parts. So, no big loss there. However, this prayer break nonsense is just insane,especially in light of what Sir George wrote. Now, I am not advocating these idiots being fired for their religion, but I am all for firing their worthless asses for being lazy bums and for striking. Nobody has a RIGHT to a job. You throw a fucking tantrum, you’re gone. If you don’t like your job, get the fuck out, find someone who will agree with you to pay you on your terms. End of story.

    Also, I am not so sure I believe Muslims can only pray at set times. I had a pretty damn devout Muslim co-worker who never demanded special breaks. I saw her a few times praying before she signed in for work, and before and after she had lunch. That’s IT! She never even thought of trying to force our employer to give her any special consideration. However, she also wore normal clothes and loved hanging out with us infidels… So, according to some, since she wasn’t a raging psycho, she wasn’t true to her religion, anyway.

    A great 200 year old read on I-Slam

    John Quincy Adams on Islam:

    “In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE…. Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant… While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.”

    THIS should be on billboards across the country. Customs and Immigration officers should be required to memorize this.
