Sheldon Cooper would know how to appreciate her:

Why Sheldon? I do appreciate her v.m.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

A lovely girl and she dances wonderfully.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Yep. But no more for NorteAmericanos, she will do it for me only from now on.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Great story. Moran Samuel demonstrates the tremendous spirit of the Israeli people in overcoming all obstacles. And she is right, if you see an obstacle as an obstacle, you will likely fail to overcome it, but if you see it as a challenge, you are more likely to be successful.

Snoopy, you may have to share with plenty of other folks.
Seriously, it is a great accomplishment for Indian-Americans. A bit shocking about the racist reactions to her, especially the amount of ignorance involved in calling her an Arab!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Indeed.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Heh heh heh. Jealous? But you are right, of course.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Possibly.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

We're into the realm of correlation v. causal factors here (he said as a former social scientist): certain of the areas of apparently higher gun violence coincide with larger cities in the North-East, North and West. Which just happen to be the most liberal areas.


But wait for the claim that that's the real link: liberals love guns...and use them.


No evidence, but when did that ever stop conspiracy theorists?

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Yeah, I was thinking of Detroit.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Heh. Easy to believe. The Romney voters tend to be armed, or at least have guns in the home. Contrary to lefty opinion, they're much less vulnerable to gun violence that way.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Hmmm. SWMBO will get a vote first.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

First, the Arab won in 2010. Second, five will get you ten that not only are her critics racists, they're probably gay as well.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Not sure it's a conspiracy thing: rather some less innocent fun.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Yeah, the last time they didn't have enough gunpowder, it looks like...

SnoopyTheGoon said...

That will be bad...

SnoopyTheGoon said...

I do agree.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Not unless Prius owners vote Republican. I don't think so.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Somebody said once that Prius owners look smug to start with. I noticed it too, but only after being told.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

I know two of them and they are both smug when around their cars. Close to insufferable. Is why some critics call the cars The Pious.
