Happy Monday, GN!

Nothing like starting out the week with a train wreck…or a champagne bottle to the groin.

Good morning, Fatwa, and speaking of train wrecks, I see Trump still hasn’t recovered from his Khan problem. The man just can’t keep his mouth shut.

Ooooh, you lucky Californians…as of today, August has been declared Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month by the fine folks in Sacramento!!1! (I’ll bet the residents of San Bernardino are extra excited by that news.)

Jeebus H. Christ and His Orchestra…where’s a Guy Fawkes when you need one?

I’m reading stuff at the pro-Trump sites, about Trump was set up; about Khan is a Democrat stooge and supporter; about how unfair the media is; about how creating jobs is exactly the same type of sacrifice made by the military and their families, and blah blah blah. And about how if I don’t vote for Trump, then I’m putting Hillary! in the White House and what little remains of America will be plowed under by her socialist-progressive agenda and that WILL ALL BE ON ME.

Fuck you.

As far as the GOP goes, I’m glad I’m not a member. In an election year, much like 2008 only in reverse, where ANY Republican should have been able to beat ANY Democrat, you guys managed to screw the pooch and pick the one guy who will likely lose. THE ONE GUY. That’s on you, GOP. I’m tired of holding my nose and voting for the lesser of two evils and for the first time I can recall, there really are two evils.

Nope, not going to do it. This crap is on you guys, not on me. Given the choice of a steaming plate of horseshit and a lukewarm bowl of cow’s piss, I choose neither. Cuz that’s my choice too--I don’t have to vote for either of these embarrassing excuses for Americans.

And anymore I’d much rather have a clear enemy in charge, someone that I can hate for all the right reasons, as opposed to a guys supposedly on my side who can’t even keep his mouth shut.

I was thinking, Fatwa, of leaving my Koran in the restroom as reading material. Perhaps with a bacon bookmark?

Holy crap: 174 incidents. Over an entire year. In a country of well over 310 million. Cry me a river.

WHEREAS, Although the majority of Muslim Americans within California and throughout the nation strive to promote peace and understanding between all faiths, identities, and nationalities while upholding those values and principles that define the American people, they have nonetheless been forced to endure harassment, assault, and discrimination since the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, and during the year 2015 alone, there were approximately 174 reported incidents of anti-Muslim violence and vandalism in the United States. It is therefore appropriate to acknowledge and promote awareness of the myriad invaluable contributions of Muslim Americans in California and across the country, and extend to them the respect and camaraderie every American deserves;

If it weren’t for those rich bigoted hateful white men that write the textbooks, I’d be fully aware of the numerous contributions made by the Muslim community.

Well, they did invent the zero…
and…
I think that’s about the sum of it.
