Anonymous asked: About the Islamic conference (tried to get everything in last message): I thought it was possible to ask questions, and there should be some sort of debate about the religion, but they only talked about haram, halal, and Allah´s greatness. They gave directions to muslims about not letting their kids spend too much time with non-muslims. I have only got an impression of islam of the media. Visiting the conference gave me a more radical view of Islam.
The more people read into Islam the more they realize that it isn’t the media that is making Islam look bad, in fact the media and our politicians in the West desparetely try to give Islam a better image, and in reality the actual doctrines of Islam are what make it so horrible. All it takes is for one to read the Quran cover to cover, and just half of the hadiths, and listen to a few “Muslim scholars”
Anonymous asked: You think more people being able to afford college for the first time had nothing to with an emerging middle class?
Middle class people were never minimum wage workers in this country.
"So just to recap here. If we were paid for our output as an employee today as compared to the standard expected of a worker in 1950, the minimum wage in 2010 would have been $28.56. (The actual minimum wage was only $7.25/hr.) $28.56 was slightly more than 90% of Americans who earned less than $27.98 per hour. Hence, 90% of American workers earn less than a minimum wage worker earned in 1950. "
