Bin Laden’s Economic Pitch for America

I hardly know what say given Osama bin Laden’s economic pitch for America today:

“[I sympathize with] the reeling of many of you under the burden of interest-related debts, insane taxes and real estate mortgages; global warming and its woes…”

“To conclude,” bin Laden says, “I invite you to embrace Islam.”  He goes on to say:  “There are no taxes in Islam, but rather there is a limited Zakaat [alms] totaling 2.5 percent.”

Low taxes, no subprime, no global warming … whoa, OBL’s got himself an election platform.

    The beauty of the Middle East Moslem world is nobody seems to work. They always protest about something, but why protest when thay pay for nothing.
