"The Jew gets preferential treatment." Dictating your prison memoirs?

Great point, Mr. Bray. Man, you sound really cool and amazing. You must be one of the only smart people living in LA. BTW: Could you reccomended a "Mangina Clinic" for David and L. Terry?

Lindagale, So sorry about your aching mangina -- oh, btw: we found your bottle of warm apple juice. It was stuck in your diaper, close to your mangina.
John October 07, 2011 at 09:50 PM
Dear David, Please check your mangina -- it appears to be swollen and all puffed-up for no reason. I wonder if you're expereincing early menopause???

Way to go, David. I'll bet there are a bunch of really cool Muslims who are overjoyed to have you bring their faith into an argument against Jews getting "preferential treatment."
