Not only do the hypocritical Muslim governments turn a blind eye to the Uyghurs, they did the same to the Rohingya in Myanmar, and their suffering is many magnitudes greater than that of the Palestinians.

Good gracious! That's quite a collection. The one about the Trump supporter who hates women is pretty darn shocking.

So many good links, as usual.

When my son was dating, he had a couple online dating profiles.
One of the deal breakers for him was religion. Basically he said 'if you're not an atheist, I am not interested in dating you'. It was really a big deal to quite a few potential dates, too. A great deal of nasty commentary. Which, as he said, just proves that religious people aren't very nice.

Thank you again for doing the weekly links, I have learned so much from them.

Lots of great links. I think the Trump offspring would look great in orange as would trump - it will match his fake tan. Oh I'm bad - there won't be any tanning beds in prison.

Thank you for all the time you poured into linking us to the best of the best. I need to return again and again - I'm discovering all sorts of great blogs I'd never seen before. You're much appreciated. PS WE DID IT!

Thanks for commenting, everyone!

Tommykey: Good point about the Rohingya. They don't seem to be as concerned about real people as about cartoons (and Jew-hating, of course).

Lady M: I think his orange is some kind of spray-on or makeup -- not that they have those in prison either.

Thanks for the shout-out, Infidel - much appreciated.
And as always, thanks for the rest of the links, too. Are you finding Blogger any easier to work with now? The only thing I've noticed (because my blog's pretty simple) is that if I upload more than one photo at a time I can't put more spaces between them. What Blogger uses for spaces (not big enough, in my opinion) is what I have to use. Or else insert one photo at a time. But as I said, I don't use many features so I didn't encounter the problems that other bloggers have.

Jenny_o: Thanks. I do find it somewhat easier. They seem to have fixed the actual glitches, but the functionality is still harder -- there are things I always need to remember to do differently than in normal typing. And the HTML version of the post editor is still a wall-of-text mess without paragraph breaks being represented by actual breaks.

Pictures are working OK for me, but I've always uploaded them one at a time.
