In my experience, if you ask a whacko if he's whacko, he'll say no.

Will all my friends in Ireland, Australia, Canada, and the UK please say a
prayer for those of us who want a more peaceful US where our children will
be able to grow to adulthood without being cut down in a school assembly,

Will all those who support rapists and murderers please raise your hand.
