It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

As america’s relative power decreases SCO’s power increases. Brzezinski (trilateral commission) has stated that those who control Eurasia will control the world, which is why he has favored so much intervention into central asia and afghanistan in particular. With blunders like in Georgia however and the declining dollar it seems that the strategy is starting to fall apart.The issue is not about islam taking over the world. No currently about 56-57% of the world population are either christians jews or muslims. The number of muslims in that number is supposed to rise to about 1/3 by 2050. So about 57-68% of the world’s population will be an adherent to an abrahamic faith. You also need to look a recent muslim birth rates, they are decreasing dramatically in the middle east and outside of South Asia especially. Almost all islamic countries are basically failed states or exporting natural resources to prop up their governments, Turkey being the exception.

If that weren’t bad enough, the current goals are now aimed at knocking the USA to a lower world position and replacing it by the UN – the One-World Government plan of so many politicians for decades.If you add in that at current rates the world will be dominated by Islam, it all makes sense that Obama not only panders to Islam, was raised in Islam, and is against Israel.As to the bankers/Wall Street that he chose to reward, it seems that they have no religion other than money so they don’t care just who the minions (slaves) under them will be as long as they can be in their towers and “safe” from the “worker bees”.

So they were actually benefiting from the supposed ban.It is like how the Seven sister oil companies were/are benefiting by keeping much of the guarded Iraqi oil off the market.

It sounds like the Taliban is a SUBSIDIARY of HALLIBURTON.Look how much Halliburton/KBR STOLE from the American Taxpayers in Iraq (and still does in all the war-zones). Pallet loads of cash just evaporating.

They surrounded themselves with flags and LOUDLY proclaimed their “love” of America….. Now they are free to pick up rifles and LEAD the Troops that they ordered, into combat.I am sure those two “HEROS” will be on the next plane to Afghanistan ………………1) FIVE DEFERMENTS to dodge SERVING the Nation during Viet Nam, too busy advancing HIS career.2) HIDES in a secret Bunker during and long after 9/11.3) Now FREE to get a rifle and a plane ticket to Afghanistan where he could LEAD the Troops into COMBAT to show us all how TOUGH he is, he prefers to JACK HIS JAW safely AWAY from any danger.4) “his” KBR/HALLIBURTON has murdered at LEAST three American Troops with faulty wiring in their WAR PROFITEERING in Iraq.Notice NONE of their children ever volunteer……….

Funding the enemy IS treason. But if I recall correctly, all major media outlets reported during the invasion that we were not defeating the enemy on the battlefield, but bribing their commanders to join our side. So where do we start the investigation?Retired Commandant of the USMC, Major General Smedley Butler was absolutely correct 75 years ago and nothing has changed. War Is A Racket. The fearmongering (terrorism) directed at the American people and the western world comes more from western governments through the mainstream media than from radical Islamic jihadis. Remember the single issue GWB ran on in 2004? BE AFRAID!The Obama administration seems to have learned something from Bush. Now the greatest terrorist threats, according to DHS, are Veterans and Christians.
