What a bunch of superstitious,servile,ignorant fools.Their stupidity is unmatched in the total of recorded history.

Farmer Dean, you are being FAR too kind.
I love it! Islam is liberalism gone absolutely crazy!!
I wonder when Bloomberg will ban tomato’s in NYC?
I love tomatoes,
Unfortunately, I am allergic to them.
I can’t think of a food that would be worse to be allergic to.
(no pizza, no spaghetti, and the worst, no ketchup).
Thought maybe it was because they looked like balls which the Islamist Association is laughably lacking in.
Why else drape their women in burlap and strap bombs to their little boys?
I’m sorry to hear that. No pizzas is sad.
It would be an interesting study to find out if this mandate leads to higher rates of prostate cancer in their population.
If Americans ever get to the Moon again we should have a collection started to pay one of them to take the moon buggy and use it to etch out a cross that can be seen from Earth by telescope.
What a nice fork in the eye of the false moon god.
Satan likes them ignorant.
