  1. 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.

My blog is at http://www.AutisticWritings.com Maybe you’d also consider giving a small donation to help me survive?

  3. I turned around and took off running into the desert area behind the gas station. Bullets were flying past me so I turned around, pulled out a machine gun, and started rocking out like Rambo. I mowed down 4 Mexicans as they chased me and I sent them straight to hell with my machine gun. I got far enough away from the exploding gas station which was now on massive fire and ducked down behind a large cactus and looked back and saw a police helicopter flying towards my location with it’s search lights beaming down towards me. I knew they would discover me within about 60 seconds so I had no choice. I pulled out my portable rocket launcher, loaded it, and then fired a guided mini-missile and blew up the chopper. Right before it hit the helicopter I saw the horrified expressions of the two pilots, one male and one female, as they saw the missile coming and knew they were about to get blown straight to hell.

Life as an autistic person is kind of difficult to say the least, and it’s especially difficult to survive financially and so that is why I am requesting donations. Please check my blog for ways you can donate. Thank you very much for your kindness!
