Eh.
My dad spent 3 or 4 months over in SA and UAE for work and he loved it aside from not eating pork. They were very kind and diligent about teaching him common customs and etiquette so he didn't get himself in trouble or offend anyone.

I wish it was like that here. I hate walking down the street and people hand me flyers "save yourself!" .. or "Abortion is WRONG".. or just people knocking on my door to try and sell their religion to me.

Sure. It's an outrageous jump to think that someone whose mother and other family live in Saudi Arabia MAY have blood from Saudi Arabia. I must be crazy for thinking anything of the sort.

Ill keep our freedom of religion and other liberties.
Their record on human rights is awful. Sure the knocks on the door are annoying but at least I can drive, go to the schools I want, get the jobs i want, drink booze if I want and have sex with whomever I want.

People can have their religion, I don't care. But they shouldn't be trying to sell it to the public. They don't come to my door any more because I opened it naked.
And the one woman who gave me the anti abortion pamphlet when I was 8 months pregnant and noticeably, I told her I was just heading down to the office for one.... she followed me for two blocks. :|

Lol. Believe me, I dont like people coming to my door either.
But, comparing that annoyance to the oppression in SA was my point. We live relatively free. Half or more of their population is VERY oppressed.

Eh, you assumed. You must not know a lot about saudi. I never said it was outrageous or crazy.
