  2. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! http://www.BoycottBitches.com I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

  4. “Time for you to go straight to hell” I replied, and then unholestered my sidearm, which was a 50 caliber Desert Eagle pistol, and aimed right at the alien’s head. I saw a look of utter terror on the alien’s face right before I discharged my firearm and caused the alien’s head to explode, blood and brains spraying everywhere.
