If found guilty, I think he should spend some one on one quality time with Charlie Manson or someone of equal caliber

Birdman said...

Nahh. Charlie don't surf. And he's in his 70's now. Let this guy spend about an hour in the exercise yard at Attica. That should do the trick.

fenway said...

are we made aware of the details as this is your commentary on marriage?

d'blank said...

No, this is not a commentary on marriage in general.

Meanwhile, back at Lakewood...

Rush ye not to judgment.

Before we condemn this man, let us first learn the fightin' words she used that made him unsheathe his scimitar.

After he's exonerated on religious grounds, let's blend his family with Octomommy's and wrap a sitcom around it... "The Suleman-Hassan Bunch."

For stunt casting, we can feature cameos by OJ and Robert Blake's haunted, hollow-eyed kids.

We'll make Janet Reno the housekeeper...she so LOVES children...barbecued.

Oooh, the sheer DIVERSITY of it gives me goosebumps!

Hankster -- Another Ranger makes good!

leslies said...

when when when will hatred and violence end?

d'blank said...

Are you refering to this guy and his wife, or FIYF and Hankster?

Birdman said...

This latest example of Ranger violence is the reason we built a wall at the Rocky River/Lakewood border.

It's going to take a few more generations to distill out the violence gene. It's planted pretty deep in the DNA.

I wish that wall had been built 40 years ago.

leslies said...

I was referring to the killer.......but any hatred feeds on itself.

leslies said...

and I wish we'd tear down that wall

leslies said...

Woody--apologies. I should have read the link...I thought it referred to one of the walls on the Mexican border. I think they should all come down. All the Mexicans don't want to live here, but they want to work--the jobs Americans mostly don't want to do...then send money home. They can't afford to live in Mexico. I just listened to a talk from someone who spent a week in a border town and lived with people before they crossed--some for the 5th and 6th times. The local Catholic priest gives all women 15 days of birth control pills before they go. The hope is than WHEN not IF they get raped by bandits, they don't get pregnant... Those walls are top of my mind lately.

warrenout said...

???The local catholic priest gives the young mexican girls 15 days of birth to cover them from the bandits when they get raped, not if. I need to hear this person talk.When you hack a humans head off. You have more wrong with you than anger and hate.There is no fixing this..There is no rehab, no second chances,there is no program of cure. Society has to live with the consequences of being unable to hold the line.And so we do, we build walls..

leslies said...

I believe there are more peaceful immigrants than head-hacker-offers coming in and out of this country. This priest knows they're going to go...probably die...definitely get raped( young, middle aged, old.) If they make it and are having some bandit's baby...it's one way he sees to take one concern away. The point is and has always been--walls don't fix anything. People find ways of beating whatever challenges are in front of them, if what they're leaving is worse. We, as a country, know this intrinsically, and we as a country can devise a better solution.

Talk about genetic hatred. How about the chimpanzee mauling the women from Connecticut?
That's one for the geneticists/evolutionists/creationists to figure out.
I hear she is getting a face transplant in Cleveland.

Fistinyoface said...

Travis the late face-ripping chimp slept with his septuagenarian owner, after candlelit dinners of lobster and pinot sipped from crystal stemware.

No doubt it got mighty romantic betwixt the 300-count sheets. It’s also alleged that Travis was sensitive, giving, genuine, loving… kinda like PAUL NEWMAN, right, Leslies?

With all the rapist/banditos and other evil MACHO men making your world such a horrid place, maybe the right recipe for you is J. Fred Muggs, a jug of Thunderbird and a Viagra-laced banana cream pie – just to be sure Mr. Muggs can rise to the occasion.

And yes, let’s tear down that wall! Provided you agree to feed and shelter –- in your home -- all those illegals about which you care so very, very, very deeply.

There now, I’ve fixed your love life and your country.

Express your gratitude!

kgwhit said...

If the economy continues to tank, the wall will not be necessary.
The illegals are not coming here to party. No jobs ergo no illegals. Well, maybe not no illegals but a helluva lot less.

d'blank said...

It's amazing where these conversations go. All I was trying to point out in the post was the unbelievable irony that a guy who started a TV station to overcome Muslim stereotypes ends up cutting his wife's head off.
