It's a-comin'!

Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport passenger lounge in Midland, Texas, awaiting their flights. One is an American Indian passing through from Lame Deer. Another is a Cowboy on his way to Houston for a livestock show and the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived at Texas State University from the Middle East.

Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull.

The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face.

The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but still no plane comes.

Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly he speaks, "At one time here, my people were many, but sadly,
now we are few."

The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, "Once my people were few," he sneers, "and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?"

The West Texas cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a drawl, "That's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe it's a-comin'."

Is it politically correct to laugh at that


I'm always a fan of a good violent protest to state that you are a peaceful religion

Nothin' quite like killing a few nuns and burning churches to protest what some guy said about Islam 500 years ago, quoting the Koran.

Remember, Islam is the Religion of Peace......... Submit or die!

Peaceful religion is an oxymoron...

And that joke is funnier every time I see it...

Focus is the ability to believe in your goal even as your path twists and turns.
