Incase anyone missed this:

Damn fine opportunity for that girl. You know what I got when I was her age? Oh, it was a banner fucking year at the old Bender family. I got a carton of cigarettes. The old man grabbed me and said, "Hey, smoke up Johnny." Alright?

No but really, I was reading Captain Underpants when I was her age.

Damn fine opportunity (i don't need your compliments) for that girl (really?, you depend on that). You know what I got when I was her age? (joy, creativity, realization, romance, no .. servitude organ-vocalizations Oh), it was a banner Mill-respecting year at the old Bendcon family. I got a carton-of cocaine skinned cigarettes. The rebel from life grabbed me and said, "Hey, you are really a balanced and decent individual." norsk-sudafr-hith?

and the Hitch is going to criticize Islam on the basis of being more objectively correct than the illiterate Mohammad who as he puts it never heard the voices of heaven in the angel Gabriel.
if the Hitch is going to mention an 'objective basis', then how is it that at best he reduces the scientically endorsed reality of our ancient natural home to a flabby weak hag and more often refuses to acknowledge our ancient natural home. it is because he is a master of misrepresentation, calumny and defamation. he holds himself to be free, to be in the house of truth against all those in the house of evil; and there shall be no obstacles to his bloody colonial escapading, for his version is foundational and his microphone is supreme.

and if you look you can all see Hitchens threatening with his sick ironic humor those with ideas based on true objectivity.


please specify true objectivity versus false objectivity. Thanks much Dr. Fruitloops
