The War on Arabic Numerals

A new front in the Clash of Civilizations in III… II… I…

The former head of NASA on Tuesday described as “deeply flawed” the idea that the space exploration agency’s priority should be outreach to Muslim countries, after current Administrator Charles Bolden made that assertion in an interview last month…

Bolden created a firestorm after telling Al Jazeera last month that President Obama told him before he took the job that he wanted him to do three things: inspire children to learn math and science, expand international relationships and “perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering.”

There’s only one solution to this dilemma: Convert all our math — and dollars — to Roman numerals. And call them Freedom Numbers.

No more al-cohol (which is an arabic word), from now on, its Jesus Juice, for Freedom, also!

This whole freedom thing is at its Zenith.

Computers are gay
Algebra is Chinese
Current base 10 numbering system is “Arabic”

It’s all bad.

So tell me, how are RWers different intellectually (stunted) than Commies were?

“Children if you don’t pay attention and learn the Roman numerals, you’ll never know when movies were made.”

I’ll take “Commies had to maintain at least *some* grasp on reality since there was an actual threat that required real scientific progress to continue” for $500, Alex. :)

It has arrived.

Hey, Bloggie, are those NY bar #s real? Holy shit, that’s depressing.

Also, haha. Way to go, feds. Nothing will make the AZ right wingers heads explode faster than New York attorneys.

New York City!
Get a rope.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: One of the attorneys here was admitted in DC nearly 60 years ago, and his bar number is in the high 4-digits. I can only imagine what they’re issuing these days.

My NM bar number issued over 15 years ago is well below 8000. I don’t know where they are at now. I’m the second person from my tribe to graduate from law school and get licensed. There is one other guy after us who is also from our Pueblo and a woman from my class whose mother is from the Pueblo but is enrolled elsewhere who is no longer practicing.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Forget about Noo Yawk City, some of those names on the pleadings sure sound like furriners.

ADD: And Members of the Tribe.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Since he’s the only one in D.Ariz. with the initials, I’m assuming that NVW is District Judge Neil V. Wake, who I see from a quick perusal of his bio is a Shrub appointee – what’s the story on him? Likely to toss the case on a motion to dismiss or will he actually hear it?

@SanFranLefty: Small c conservative. He upheld the employer sanctions law that just got accepted by USSC, but he won’t hold the case for long. The other suits are already consolidated before J. Susan Bolton. Also conservative, but not as much as Wake.

@SanFranLefty: And by that I’m sure you mean the Irish dickhead anchor baby.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ:

It’ll be like the Pace salsa commercial gone horribly, horribly wrong. :)

@Prommie: @SanFranLefty: The Tribe was much better off under the sophisticated Califate than it was under the rule of the brutish knuckle-draggers in Europe at that time.
