“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Pakistani's remind us why their country isn't worth a shit

This 25 year old Pakistani woman was stoned to death outside a Lahore courthouse, in broad daylight, by members of her own family. Her crime? Falling in love with a man, marrying him, and getting pregnant by him....but without the approval of the male members of her family. How is it that something as barbaric as stoning still takes place in the 21st Century? Oh, that's right, they're Muslims and culturally-validated barbarism and primitive brutality toward their women are all they have....it's a way of life.

Apparently 100's of these honor-killings take place, as a matter of routine each year, in this God-forsaken shit-hole of a country.

Remind me what the US gets in return for the $19 Billion in bribe money since 9/11, that we give Pakistan? We call it "foreign aid" but let's be honest, it's bribery to get them to behave in ways that are pleasing to us.

The Brits left these savages a justice system; this young lady was attempting to access it. India has mostly kept it with some flaws. There is a critical difference between India and Pakistan.

I agree, India has made the most of western influence over the generations, despite crippling population growth. What's wrong with Pakistan? I'll tell you.....Islam.
