Hmmm...How many times have I heard that type of ... commentary ? Here's the problem though..
While I responded to a former commentary that was clearly based on an "illogical" premise. I personally did not realize at the time, the level affection people could have for such statements of illogic. Nonetheless, in the words of Sherlock Holmes; come now Watson, the game's afoot !

So, how does banning cars or trucks = banning Islam ? Muslims drive cars and trucks, and so do non-muslims. But I like your inference here: Since Islam should be banned because muslims drive cars and trucks, that would mean.... there is no such thing as a non-muslim is there ? ! Welcome to the fold brother.

Thank you for making me smile.
