I've got your financial crisis solution riiiiiiiiight heeeeeeeere.
Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader appeared in a new video posted Friday calling on Americans to embrace Islam to overcome the financial meltdown, which he said was a consequence of the Sept. 11 attacks and militant strikes in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Ayman al-Zawahri, whose 80-minute recording touched on a number of subjects, also lashed out at Afghanistan's government and said any U.S. gains in Iraq will be temporary.

Zawahri's new recording came in the form of a question-and-answer session with an off-camera interviewer.

Appearing in a white turban and robe, Zawahri discussed the roots of the U.S. economic crisis. He said it was a repercussion of the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States, and that the crisis would continue "as long as the foolish American policy of wading in Muslim blood continues."

"The American economy was afflicted by a downturn and loss of investor confidence in the market following the events of Sept. 11," he said.

"The modern economy has been destroyed by the strikes of the mujahedeen (in Iraq and Afghanistan) and usury," he said, using the Arabic term for holy warriors.

Under Islamic Sharia law, usury, like drinking alcohol, is among the grand sins.

Zawahri then called on the American people to "embrace Islam to live a life free of greed, exploitation and forbidden wealth."
It's really depressing when the crazies on the other side sound better enough than our crazies to actually start making a smidge of sense.

What The Wingnuts Are Whining About Now

...Obama's inauguration is too expensive in today's economic climate, and inappropriate with two wars going on. Shame on him or something!

Granted, the same arguments were leveled at Bush by the Left. The difference is that Obama is trying to end the wars and improve the economic conditions, unlike Bush. And if 4 million American citizens actually want to be involved with the inauguration of their leader, well we can't have that, it's too expensive.

The problem with the right is if the government activity in question benefits ordinary Americans in any way, it's inefficient and too expensive. If it benefits huge corporations, it's vital to our economy no matter what the cost.

Dear America:

"If Obama tries any of this Socialist eco-friendly 'greater good' garbage on Wall Street, why he'll destroy the economy or something!"
