Bonnie, On the issues of

Bonnie, On the issues of social programs, banking, pubic schools, where is this country was or is on "liberty," it seems like some sick joke, no meaning but enslaved to a etymology fiction...In Islam, God, like the constitution of the United States, the foundering fathers, is a "Father," GOD in ISLAM is NOT a "father" but A LOVER...The epistemology in the Qur'an on brotherhood is a good as some of the precepts in the Bill of Rights!!! This constitution, moreover, is a seductive and evil document, and just a useful fiction to keep us enslaved to some sick idol gods (foundering fathers) and their false precepts...

As someone w/o the $ to use

As someone w/o the $ to use my 90% MCAT score I would like to second the 'sick joke' observation about our schools and social services ...but in defense of chimpanzees, sex workers and rodents, Bonnie...I, DJ Mouse, founding member of Bolshevics Anonymous...(we realize that only by appealing to a power greater than ourselves can we overcome our dis-ability and be happy hippies, and happy hippies don't kill people!) ...I, in turn must protest the inclusion of the aforementioned in comparison to the "beady eyed" BANKSTERS being exposed here (for the theft of the commons) that is the theme here...please...w/ all due respect to a prophet who asked for tithes and echoed Mosaic law's ban on usury, peace be upon him and us all, but I'd have to place Jefferson's Koran with it's inclusion of Christian and Jewish myths on top of King Jame's, King David's and the Hindu caste versions of reality as either symptoms of mental pathology needing cure or a challenge belonging in the PDR, at least...and, as a commie hippie believing all kinds of wild stuff let's call religious belief whether abnormal or not as a challenge...in a dog eat dog greedhead country if not world ...not a pathology...and not set a bad example for the rest of the moon bunnies in the ever present eyes of mental health professionals,,, and pick it up w/ the candle in 'Ethan Allen's otherwise awesome rap
