A Lesson Learned in Kabul - being held captive as a woman in a Muslim nation.
Thus, even before I became a feminist in 1967, I had already learned that the (imperfect) West is still a far better place for a woman to live than is the most hospitable, beautiful, wealth-encrusted Muslim country. Friends thought I had married a Prince and gone to live in a fairytale. They did not want too much reality to intrude upon their fantasies.

Thus, at too young an age, I already understood that barbarism and hatred of the Other is indigenous to Islam; it is not caused by Western “evil.” Intra-tribal and religious-sect feuding is a permanent way of life in the wild, wild East.

I could never get anyone in the American civil rights, anti-war, feminist, or post-colonialist movements to understand this. They needed to blame the Big Bad West for the world’s problems. They also needed to identify the developing world as intrinsically innocent, pure, victimized.

Government Insurance Plan Will Dominate Market, Senate Republicans Warn.

As a result, they predicted the government plan will have an unfair price advantage in the marketplace, potentially drawing millions into it whether the customers want it or not.

Obama putting $3.4B toward a 'smart' power grid. Few people realize that one of the things a "smart" grid does is control your home's thermostat. So if the power company decides you are using, say, too much heating energy, they will remotely lower your heat whether you want it lowered or not.
