Clueless 2?
Hitting Saudi Arabia Where It Hurts


Bernie Sanders has punted on the issue of what to do in either Syria or the Middle East, failing to offer any thoughtful ideas about what can be done to stabilize the region. He opted instead for a clever but vacuous talking point, arguing that the Saudis and other rich oil sheiks of the Persian Gulf should use their wealth and militaries to bring order to the region, to “get their hands dirty.”

The problem is that the Saudis, the Qataris and the Kuwaitis – along with the Turks – are a big part of the problem. They have used their considerable wealth to finance and arm Al Qaeda and its various allies and spinoffs, including the Islamic State. Their hands are already very dirty.

From the: ‘I should be kidding but this is fucking for real’ file…


‘Clock boy’ Ahmed Mohamed’s family
seeks $15 million

I’d like to thank the police officer who erred on the side of public safety and DID HIS JOB so there were no classrooms full of dead kids at the end of the day.

Does this look like a “clock” to anyone else in the western world?


I think the kid was fucking with people that day and deserved to be removed from the school and questioned. Nobody hurt him. Nobody beat him up. Nobody violated his rights. He created a suspicious incident.

A lot of kneejerk PC police scream “racism,” but that’s not what happened here. The kid did something glaringly weird. Police and school personnel were rightly concerned.

I think the kid is still fucking with us. Fifteen million dollars: go fuck yourself.
