Banana Republic is the latest major retailer to sell hijabs, the Islamic head covering for women. Although the company has been praised for its new products by CAIR, it also faces backlash from the Islamic community for showing models in hijabs dressed in short-sleeved t-shirts and other clothing not in line with Islamic dress codes.The clothing company began selling hijabs in late July, following in the footsteps of Nike and Macy’s. Banana Republic’s site currently features four hijabs in solid colors as well as leopard and floral prints, ranging in price from $39.50 to $49.50.

Just cut up my Macy’s card. Nike? I’ll go barefoot first. Banana Republic, buh bye. Wonder when Macy’s and Banana Republic will stop selling clothing and items offensive to Muslims?

#6, Normally I would not care one bit. But where these people go... trouble is not far behind. If someone wishes to dress in a particular manner that satisfies their religious beliefs that is fine by me unless their presence has demonstrated time and time again a willingness to condemn those who do not follow in their manner to the point of putting the infidels to death. Hijabs are gang attire as far as I am concerned.

I remember when scarves tied a certain way were symbolic of palestinian oppression. Now everyone just wears scarves tied like that and it doesn’t mean a thing. I can see the hijab going the same way. Almost. Maybe not. I’ll never wear one but they seem to be marketing them as fashion accessories. I do agree there’s a nose and a tent involved. Stupid muzzles ruin everything.

Please don't over-react. Hijabs are WOMEN's wear and I don't think many of the world's Islamic terrorists have been anything other than young MEN. Don't get me wrong - I do not think of Islam as a 'religion of peace'. But acting like 100% of the world's BILLION+ muslims are all terrorists is like thinking all Jews support Israel - simply not true.

IHOP bought out Applebee's and it is now defunct. You couldn't buy a meal there if you were starving. Banana Republic is mainly for teens (like Abercrombe & Fitch, and GAP, etc) so I am not drawn to it. But unless it was for a skit or a Halloween costume, I can't imagine a real American buying a hijab anyway. Suck up to the enemy all you want to, but don't expect me to help. When they come for you and cut off your head, please do not bleed on my rug.

Democrats seem to be adjusting well to the Trump era. On Tuesday, for example, Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro targeted retirees in San Antonio for donating to President Trump's reelection campaign. “Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump, etc,” the Twitter account maintained by the congressman’s reelection campaign said Tuesday. The note also lists local businesses and businessmen by name. To be clear, some of the people on this list are his constituents.

John Solomon recently broke the news that former FBI director James Comey will soon face a “reckoning” for leaking memos of his conversations with the president. Solomon means Comey will be embarrassed by an imminent inspector general report containing stern language. Solomon does not mean that Comey will face any legal consequences, however, because “prosecutors working for Attorney General William Barr reportedly have decided to decline prosecution.” Many recognize Comey as a central figure in the Russia collusion hoax, the U.S. Department of Justice’s interference in the 2016 election, and subsequent resistance to the transfer of power to President Trump.

By 2050, the world will need to produce 56% more food than in 2010, to feed a predicted 9.8 billion people. If the level of meat and dairy consumption rises in line with current trends, 2.3 million square miles of forest will need to be converted for agriculture.

The move gives House Democrats a chance to relitigate the partisan confirmation battle through the committee’s oversight efforts. The New York Democrat said the Senate Judiciary Committee failed to review documents from Justice Kavanaugh’s time as a staff secretary in the White House from 2003 to 2006. Former Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican, had requested documents related to Justice Kavanaugh’s work in the White House Counsel’s office from 2001 to 2003.
