    A gay Muslim from Kenya, says he was born in a Hawaii Hospital that was not there when he was born, married to Crossdresser rents two kids, seals his records, the chair at supposedly his Law school says he never heard of him,
    The fakemedia covers for him and he funds people that swear to kill us $1.7 billion to nuclear weapons and then he spends more money than all other Presidents combined and some voters buy it! Now that is a stand up comedy. GlennFHoward

    Thanx for the advice thought iam sikh but when I went to america one crazy guy jumped out of no where. Just to shout at me saying iam a Muslim and a terrorist.

Although I was talking in punjabi and one persian guy knew punjabi sad life he replied to me in english.😂

    Trump hates Socialism is at its core an economic philosophy, whereas Trump Embrasses Communism is economic and political in its requirement that government be the central owner and decision maker in all matters. Communism rejects any religion and in a true Communist state religion is effectively abolished

    Good talk, but the best debate in the world today is the debate between Christian Prince against his challenger on TVclip. CP alone challenged approximately 1.6 billion of the world's Muslims, and no Muslim has been able to defeat CP. Why is the CP debate on TVclip the best?
    1. Based on the truth and facts displayed on the monitor screen.
    2. Based on honesty not lies, not Taqiya
    3. Very deep, and very critical.
    4. Very useful to increase knowledge in terms of Judaism, Islam and Christianity, and English and Arabic.
    Please try, you must be addicted to the CP debates on TVclip. I am not Muslim, not Christian, but agnostic, and I am very grateful to CP for sharing his knowledge about Islam. FYI,
    CP continues to invite Dr. Zakir Naik to debate, but has never been served, perhaps Zakir Naik is afraid of being less intelligent in terms of Islam. We are waiting for an immediate debate between them so that the world will be more intelligent about Islam.

    Things not to say on a plane is the same when you are White. Don't joke about bombs, don't say "hi Jack," don't threaten anyone in any way. And whatever you do, don't say you approve of President Trump or anything like that, if you want a hassle-free flight.
