Playing with bush

by unanon at 10:57 PM on May 23, 2002

That George W Bush sure knows how to make enemies.

Yes, it is true that I hated him before because the man is a moron, but I hate him even more now.

For those of you not in the know, some Democrats decided to criticize him for not making the link between very vague intelligence from the FBI and the September 11 thingie. Now, I’ll be the first to come out and say that, with the benefit of hindsight all the clues fit together, but those very same clues beforehand would have made no sense whatsoever. However, instead of sticking with this line, “suck my Dick” Cheney has instead come out and scared the living crap out of half of the US by claiming that “arabs” are renting out apartments to blow up.

This is bad news for me. You see, in an attempt to be closer to campus, I have been searching for an apartment. To live in. “What’s the problem there,“ you may say. Well, me being a young male of middle-eastern appearance searching for an apartment has raised a few eyebrows. A lot of men my age tend to go apartment shopping with their girlfriends. Since I don’t have one, I usually go by myself, or with a male friend. In the past, people would have just assumed I was gay and gotten over it. Now, however, I keep getting strange questions from paranoid people:

“Hey, what’s in that box?” “Um, my computer…” “An explosive computer?” “Er, no… it’s not an AMD…”

Please, don't get me started on AMDs...

Great, another group of people to complain about being the target of discrimination. In the future try to make your imaginary interactions with Joe average at least slightly believable.

I believed it...

Hey Frank, who is the "imagined" group? Are you saying that Middle Easterners aren't getting even mildly discriminated against these days? Gays? AMD owners?

Er, Frank, doll? Wake Up!! Well over 3,000 people have documented evidence of discrimination, harassment, and violence post 9/11. They were all either of Middle Eastern descent, or perceived to be. Victims included Jews, Latinos, South Asians, and just plain old regular white people who appeared to be Arab.

Oh, we are allowed to be snotty?
Well in that case: Frank... do you happen to be a white male?
People wouldn't have to complain about experiencing discrimination if other people didn't discriminate, so let's get to the real root of the problem, shall we?

Frank is a troll, methinks.

I have to ask, what are AMD's?

And yes, I think I just got you started on them, please forgive me. ;)

AMD is the Intel rival in the microchip market.

Keebler is the Chips A'Hoy rival in the chocolate chip market.

(That was my second Chips AHoy reference this week)

Ah-ha! Thanks, mg.

Congrats on the Chips Ahoy reference. Maybe you'll luck out and get in at least one more by midnight. ;)

What I find hilarious is that, while we are debating whether racism against people of middle-eastern appearance exists or not, nobody has come out in support of AMD...

Hey, I like AMD....

by Antwon at May 26, 2002 10:07 PM

I have an AMD XP chip and it works fine. I can even cook my dinner on it. Intel can't do that!

by MrBlank at May 28, 2002 11:02 AM

I have an Athlon at home...

The end.
