Good morning, everyone! There’s so much stored-up Freepitude at this point that I’m going to have to open up an annex to store it, and you wouldn’t believe the EPA paperwork on such a thing!
So, let’s start cracking those gently glowing steel canisters open, shall we?
First up – Bomb, bomb, bomb – bomb bomb Ir-ving!
They do start ’em young…
(no, that’s not the Dallas Morning News article’s headline, just a Freeper trying to be witty. He did make it half-way there.)

Ahmed Mohamed — who makes his own radios and repairs his own go-kart — hoped to impress his teachers when he brought a homemade clock to MacArthur High on Monday.
Instead, the school phoned police about Ahmed’s circuit-stuffed pencil case.
So the 14-year-old missed the student council meeting and took a trip in handcuffs to juvenile detention. His clock now sits in an evidence room. Police say they may yet charge him with making a hoax bomb — though they acknowledge he told everyone who would listen that it’s a clock.
In the meantime, Ahmed’s been suspended, his father is upset and the Council on American-Islamic Relations is once again eyeing claims of Islamophobia in Irving.
Be interesting to know if the kid did this on 9-11.
Another muzzie jihadist yute
testing the waters. Irving (once the home of Texas Stadium) used to be a nice suburb of Dallas. It’s now heavily M&M — Mexican and mooselimb.

To: ameribbean expatIt is a clock, you islamophobic American pigs!
To: re_nortexWhat if he is just a kid who really does like to tinker with electronics.I seem to recall something called due process……..
So if I’m reseating an IDE cable, I’m fiddling and soldering?
Plus I lost the little stand an iron once had and did let it dangle, I knew the length of cable. Safer than setting it on a desk.
Dude, you’re almost the stereotypical parody jerks like Colbert and Liebowitz like to rail against when they bring up conservatives. Way to to confirm it.
Crazieman’s not done with re_nortex just yet:
To: re_nortexAs for being a jerk, so be it because I’m 100% for racial profiling. It’s effective and has a track record of working. I applaud the Irving ISD for their vigilance.
At least until they refer some kid to the police for bringing in an old cap gun for show and tell.
Sometimes, a clock is just a clock.
To: CraziemanUh… we’re talking about a public school. The very same public schools that expel children for pointing fingers, chewing poptarts, or saying “bang bang” with chicken nuggets.Exactly.
The real villains in this story are the mentally retarted school district employees who can’t tell the difference between a swirl of water in a flushing toilet and a category 5 hurricane.
The muslim kid was just being a kid, not a muslim.
Every school district employee even remotely associated with this story should be fired. They are all stealing from the taxpayers. Felony class stealing.
To: Timber Rattler
I’m not torn.
He took it to school, showed everyone, no secret at all.
Grotesque and stupid overreaction by idiots who miss the real threats all around them.
Kid is a decent elec tech at a young age instead of being glued to video games or wasting time bouncing balls around.
And the dimbulb cops and school “administrators” put him in handcuffs?
Yet another reason to forget the government concentration camps they call “schools”.
Expressing his admiration for a high school student’s curiosity about science, President Obama has invited Ahmed Mohamed to the White House.
Ahmed Mohamed, 14, was handcuffed and taken away from his school in Irving, Texas, earlier this week after school officials grew suspicious of a digital clock he had made in a pencil case over the weekend.
Oops – the kid that was unfairly targeted by the power-crazed school amins and the jackbooted thugs is now in bed with the Sooper Sekrit Kenyan!
Does this change things?
If I wanted to give the ‘teen’ the benefit of the doubt: clock, and not a bomb (or precursor), I do not any longer.
bo has outed him as a full-blown bomb making muslim radical (check out his dad).
To: Timber RattlerAnd therein lies the big mistake by the school and police department…once they figured out it really was a clock, the cops still arrested the kid for making a “hoax bomb” instead of just backing away and telling him good job.Of course. They had to double down on the stupid because by just having a clock the kid embarrassed the administrators and the cops so the kid got charged with a “contempt of cop” charge.
The kid should be thankful that he didn’t get charged with “resisting arrest” and then tased and beaten until he was dead. All of which would have been “justified” because the cops would say they were “in fear for their lives”.
It grates me to say this, but kudos to President Obama for curb stomping the possibility of this kid being retaliated against.
Dennis Rodman, friend of murdering despot Kim Jong-Un, now backs Donald Trump for president

Donald Trump continues to gain over his opponents in a variety of polls as he works to secure the Republican nomination for president, and now it seems he has found one more fan – Dennis Rodman.
Rodman took to Twitter on Friday and wrote; ‘@realdonaldtrump has been a great friend for many years. We don’t need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump! Trump 2016.’
Trump seemed to genuinely appreciate the endorsement as well, writing back to Rodman; ‘Thank you @DennisRodman. It’s time to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain! I hope you are doing well!’
The exchange comes as a bit of a surprise as Rodman is infamously friends with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
Trump on the other hand, like most other Americans, does not support the tyrannical dictator, though he did call Rodman’s trip to the country ‘smart’ in one interview.
In that 2013 same interview, during which he was promoting the latest season of The Apprentice on which Rodman appeared, Trump also took a dig at the president saying Rodman going to North Korea was ‘a lot better than what we have’ with President Obama.
Trump was singing a far different tune however a year later when Rodman spoke of the mogul possibly going to NBorth Korea with him, writing on Twitter; ‘Dennis Rodman was either drunk or on drugs (delusional) when he said I wanted to go to North Korea with him. Glad I fired him on Apprentice!’

Only three more weeks until the start of the next FReepathon!
To: ButThreeLeftsDoSad news. We’ll make it, but there are a lot of freeploaders here who aren’t contributing anything and use this forum constantly. We used to get this done in 3 weeks. Now it is taking 3 months.
To: Eddie01Some of you prolific Trump haters are sure taken up a lot of bandwidth with not much contribution. Just sayin’.
Some of you prolific Trump haters LOVERS are sure taken up a lot of bandwidth with not much contribution.
When I first registered my screen name here and joined up, it was taking 7-10 DAYS.
We get 40-50 new monthlies every quarter and it takes longer and longer each quarter.
Too many like to play and not enough want to pay.
FReepdom isn’t free.
Trump on ’08 Financial Crisis: “You Know, We Should Really Blame Bush Republicans”

Trump on ’08 Financial Crisis: You Know, We Should Really Blame Bush Republicans Daniel Doherty | Jul 24, 2015 Daniel Doherty
We should? Well, Donald Trump thinks so. Fast forward to the 15:40 mark: Video Link at the end of article.
“I identify with some things as a Democrat…I was never a Bush fan. [When] the economy crashed so horribly under George Bush, because of mistakes they made having to do with banking and lots of other things, I don’t think the Democrats would have done that.”
No? Too bad Democrats weren’t in charge then. The crisis may have been averted.
By the way, former Democrat Donald Trump is a serial flip-flopper, in case you needed reminding. As several media outlets have already reported, he’s flip-flopped on at least three issues that conservatives care about: abortion, gun rights, and health care to name just a few. He’s also donated money to Hillary Clinton of all people as well as committees that specialize in electing Democrats. He is, in other words, an erstwhile progressive masquerading as a longstanding conservative warrior.
And yet, The Donald’s most passionate supporters are seemingly blind to this reality — or unwilling to face facts. Consider, for instance, this rather telling interview during which a number of Trump supporters are plainly — and indeed directly — confronted with the candidate’s long and very public history of flip-flopping.
Here’s how almost all of them responded: Video link bottom of article:
CNN anchor: “So you see it as adaptability, not flip-flopping?”
Trump supporters in unison: “That’s exactly right!!”
Riiiiight. Because Donald Trump doesn’t flip-flop like every other candidate running for president, he merely adapts. Got it.
I do not agree with Trump on this as he is wrong. However, this strategy paints JEB! with the tar of his brother’s biggest perceived failure further driving JEB’s! numbers down. So I like it. EH

To: rikkirDemocrats created the issue by forcing banks to give loans to those they knew couldn’t pay them, Fannie-May, Freddie-Mac, along with large brokerage houses bought these because they were being handed out You may want to brush up on your history a bit.
If you’re interested in what Bush really did instead of what his handlers said he did, visit my FR home page.
Bottom line: Bush’s economic policies caused the real estate crash.
To: Jim from C-Town
Bush is one of the main reasons that after 30+ years as a Republican I registered as an Independent back in 2007. Among my gripes was his failure to veto any spending bill that came across his desk for the first 6 years of his presidency. But Republican spending is not what caused the economic crisis. The CRA, subprime lending and Dodd-Frank did. All democRAT.
