  1. Crusades 2 coming to a town near you courtesy of the mutt now in the white house! Knights Templar recruiting drive….sign me up!

  2. Accept it or NOT,Radical Islam has now taking the lives of 49,mostly Gay/Lesbian human beings in Orlando,FL. Very likely the mass-murderer O’mar Mateen,rightfully assumed,none of the Orlando club patron,had even a hand gun on them. This is despite the fact,that Florida permits individual gun-ownership and gun self-defense. Orlando is NOT Miami Beach. Thus,this was the softest target yet for lone wolf international Radical Islam Terrorism. Sure,we could argue for a nationwide assault-weapons ownership ban. But,if it wasn’t for Radical Islam,ISIS,AL Quada,Taliban,etc.,Omar Mateen never would have went on this cold-blooded mass-murder spree. True,there is also currently Christian fundamentalism,even Jewish fundamentalism,but,they are NOT committing mass-murder in the names of Jesus or Moses. And the Christian crusades,ended around the year 1300. Enough,politically-correct non-sense.
