“Jap” is a perfectly good tag for Japanese

It’s a freaking abbreviation, dude.

Gormless Republican congressman Peter King may not see eye-to-eye with his fellow prick-pol from the Queens, Donald Trump, but they both float in the same Yisrael-first sewer, IMO.

GoY’s shoot-only-to-kill technique is not the only option

Late last month a cop in plain clothes, Thomas Smith, gunned down a 14 yo 8th grader named Dedric Colvin adjacent a basketball court near the center of Baltimore. The kid was carrying a basketball in one hand and a Daisy Powerline 340 BB gun in the other. Dedrick survived, taking a shot to the leg and to the shoulder.
