“I love mankind – it’s just people I can’t stand!” –Charles M. Schulz
I don’t expect all that much from people, really I don’t. Yet sadly enough, they still disappoint me. Semi-regularly. Some days, I’d gladly join another species … but which one would let me? Don’t answer that!
You know what a blog post can be worth, and this story about the young Texas clockmaker is being spun fifteen ways, but if this is true … Well, we mostly expect the worst from Texas, especially after our recent sour history with the pestilential place, but this is low even for those unspeakable bastards! Not just mean, not just hate-filled and paranoid, not just picking on an easy target, but gutless and petty too. Wonder if Mexico would consider taking the damned state back? If it’ll help I can chip in a double batch of ginger cookies to clinch the deal.

I said: it’s sad they thought that kid had a bomb.
She said: they didn’t think he had a bomb.
I said: yes, they thought he made a bomb and even called the police.
She said: They just wanted to humiliate a little Muslim boy. They didn’t think he had a bomb.
I said: Don’t be a conspiracy theorist. They might be a little prejudiced, but I’m sure they thought he had a bomb.
She said: OK. But they didn’t evacuate the school, like you do when there’s a bomb.
They didn’t call a bomb squad – like you do when there’s a bomb.
They didn’t get as far away from him as possible, like you do when there’s a bomb.
Then they put him and the clock in an office: not like you do when there’s a bomb.
Then they waited with him for the police to arrive, and then they put the clock in the same car as the police.
Then they took pictures of it.
I said: Damn…..They never thought he had a bomb.
EQUAL RIGHTS are HUMAN RIGHTS!
The Irving PD, & the School Admin will be rightfully sued. They can now pay Ahmed’s way to MIT. Thanks.
