In another (now locked) thread I had made the comment

that, at the turn of the century Jerusalem had more Jews than Muslims, to which the ever-genteel poster responded with a sophisticated argument - "Bullshit".

In the interests of accuracy on this point, here are some interesting population figures for Jerusalem. It's a little hard to read since he column formatting got somewhat shifted when I did a cut and paste. Nonetheless the accuracy of my original statement is clearly evident:

Jews as absolute or relative majority[edit]

Not that we need any more Republican clowns cluttering

up the airways but one thing has me amazed - where is Newt Gingrich? It seems that, in the past the man who is 'what stupid people think intelligent people sound like' was all over the place, 24/7. Now, not a word (at least that I'm aware of) from old 'Let's shut the gumbint down' Newtie. Does somebody have something on him? Inquiring mind want to know...

If Newt Gingrich is what the ignorant Rethug base thinks

an intelligent person sounds like, Trump is what the base thinks an ignorant know-nothing blowhard sounds like. And that's why they love him. "'Cuz he's jest like ME!!!".
