I will not be saddened if the Moslems blow up the entire Facebook system.

Facebook -v- Muzzies,

it’s like watching Notre Dame-v-USC (you don’t want either one to win, so you simply sit for 4 qtrs praying a stadium collapse takes them all out)

A quality shared by Obama, not coincidentally.

I’m part of that group as well. Glad to see FB not punking out like South Park did.

Everybody should then make 10 photocopies and mail them to random addresses in Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Will be fun to completely shut-down their postal services.

I made a separate account so I could check it out. There are some unbelievably talented people out there. The best I’ve seen was a sketch of Mohammed doing a self-portrait. Tasteful, clean, and directly to the point.
