Do they have jobs? Probably not. Why do these dirty beggars think the US owes them anything?

Now, that is a solution to the Syrian crisis: send all the Sunni rats to Pennsylvania so that Assad cannot harm them anymore.

The Bible speaks of three central virtues: Faith, Hope & Charity. And the greatest of these is Charity. And, surprisingly (and even more so, sadly), you have the temerity to use Faith as a screen name.

Awww! Another poor, uneducated, hateful piece of white trash. As Lyndon Johnson said: "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him someone to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you." Welcome to the Republican Party base!

We put the Shi'a in power so they could chum up with Iran so that we could put the Sunni in power in Syria and then democracy would sweep all across the continent except in the Gulf where they're used to desert storms and have sturdy tents and heavy anchors for our ships. It's all part of our Grand Plan. Al Qaeda as usual, sneaked in through the back door.

Yeah, Powell told us if we broke it, we own it. I guess we haven't broken enough stuff over there yet.

Maybe Washington should give up on the middle east and just dig a mosh pit?

The important part of the story of life is how you ever managed to get here and if you'll ever manage to leave in one piece, with that sweet disposition of yours.

Have you ever considered auditioning for a Hollywood freak flick?
