G&D likes to make comments like that. It's not real.
Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

Only when the strikers go back to work, and renounce their citizenship so they can not vote will the crisis be over.

But then that means Walker would have employed illegal immigrant labor and the Tea Party would eat him alive.

Politically crippling the majority is just as deserving as being only one man being hunted down from said people.

That the death threats (which could well be fabricated by the Republicans, not too different from Walker thinking about Mubaraking the protestors) are a sign that the Democrats, liberals and union workers have conceded.

In other words, more partisan gloating and sneering from Yu-Gi-Owe.


Not that they have conceded, just that they should and are only screaming "No" out of stubbornness! :lol:
