The other day, I discussed al-Shabaab’s used car salesman-like pitch to encourage people to join their ranks: just stand on the battlefield and you get up to 700 years of worship in your favor on the Day of Judgment. Well it turns out that Daesh has come up with its own logic that also makes […]Read more "By ISIS Logic, Terrorism is Win-Win"

No, that’s already been covered, and this blog is about […]Read more "Trump and Republicans Are Delusional About His Chances"
Donald Trump is like a bottomless pit of material for this blog. So, to quote Les Lye’s firing squad character on You Can’t Do That on Television, “What is it this time?” Well, Donald Trump has gotten some heat during his campaign because, a few years ago, he in effect said he wants to have […]Read more "Donald Trump, Who Wants to Have Sex with His Daughter, Is Friends with Vince McMahon, Who Also Wanted to Have Sex with His Daughter"
Donald Trump, in addition to being a big inspiration for this blog, has also been a big supporter of the death penalty. Perhaps this was most evident when he took out full page ads in New York City’s major dailies saying the death penalty should be reinstituted following the Central Park 5 gang rape case.
