Category: Stupid Pills Terrorist Conversation

During the creation of a terrorist video to build bomb vest and car bombs the instructor inadvertently sets off a vest killing 21 terrorists and injuring another 12.  

Some things just bring a smile to your face. The thought of a bunch of Jihadies standing around receiving instruction on building car bombs and suicide vests while being video taped when the bomb goes off would be worth paying for their education.

In fact, maybe we could get some selected Democrats as guest speakers. One can only dream at the possibilities.

Topics of Interest

Trampo did not provide topics yet.


American Values says:
"Thank you for sharing your opinions."
Anne Southern says:
"Thank you for your kind words, Trampo. To get encouragement from one who knows is always lovely!"
Bill Simon says:
"I have put my share of rigs down the pike. It takes that sort of experience and getting to know people along the way to round out a well lived human life."
PonderWithMe says:
"Seldom do I see such clarity of insight in one who claims to be uneducated. Do you perhaps conceal an advanced degree in the human sciences and arts? "
MGySgt Edward S. Renner USMC says:
"The indomitable spirit of the Marine is closely akin to the spirit of bikers. You and I may not always see eye to eye, but you have a sensible outlook and that is enough."
Malcolm N. Walter says:
"Sensible thought, couched in understandable terms, brings wisdom to the common man. That may be intimidating to persons of low designs on others, but it also lays bare their unsavory designs. Thank you for showing the gumption to speak the clear truth even at the risk of severely panicking leftists."
Fred Guenther says:
"It is good to see your homespun wisdom on AOL Answers. These days, common sense and common decency seem to be out of fashion. Let's all hope that leftist malarkey is a passing fad, and that homespun wisdom becomes the fashion again."
Bill Simon says:
"I understand you have a few endorsements to your hard copy and some miles under your belt. Welcome to the fraternity of the true professional driver. Without us, nothing gets anywhere. "
Stanley Pembroke says:
"I find uncommon wisdom in your words, Trampo. Your sensible approach to living has served you well, and may I say also has given you great insight. Your insight may be unnerving to persons who have hidden agendas, but it is most reassuring to persons who think outside the box."
Stanley Pembroke says:
"It is gratifying that we agree on so many things, Trampo. Your commonsense approach is quite accurate. Seldom do I see greater insight in anyone. Your presence on AOL Answers is quite beneficial. Allow me to encourage you to get that long hoped for sheepskin. "
MGySgt Edward S. Renner USMC says:
"There is always time for sensible persons to speak on AOL Answers. It is good to see a refreshing and positive voice here, with real fact and proven insight. We have to dig through the rubble to find that occasional bit of common decency and common sense but it is always well worth the digging. Continue to post. We have need of decent persons like you here to offset the shennanigans of the one token leftist."
The Unknown Philosopher says:
"The most important skill we have is the ability to get along with others. You have done so admirably, yet some others will not get along with you. You mastered the course material. I'd say you are fit to graduate once this session has ended."
Gene Smolin says:
"Nothing can repress the spirit of a biker, and nothing will dull the drive of a physicist. There are times I envy you, Trampo. Would that I had your resilience. AOL Answers is all the richer for your presence."
Fred Guenther says:
"Don't sell yourself short, Trampo. Please get in touch with your nearest university. Although it is late in the game, I see a Ph.D lurking in your very simple words."
Fred Guenther says:
"Our only leftist on AOL Answers spews the same racist garbage constantly. I see that she has been harassing you as bitterly as she has me. Perhaps there is the making of a postgrad in you after all: you certainly have the tenacity to stay on course regardless the hate games of mindless detractors."
stressed says:
"Trampo UR a real American. Scares Tadpole 2 mindless fear. Tadpole hates America, sides w/ Obama. 100% disloyal like all Dems R."
Gene Smolin says:
"Trampo, bitter leftists make those whom they attack all the finer people. You have a talent, to make the complex into something simple enough for a layman to understand and apply. So did Einstein and Feynman. In a way, you share a talent with the greatest minds on the planet."
stressed says:
"Trampo = 100% American. Dangerous here & now. Glad 2 C others still have balls. Maybe some good comes out of it."
Fred Guenther says:
"Leftists will always be a day late and a few ions short. It is good to see some folks are still sane, sensible, and to be trusted. There is plenty of good work out there for good people: only leftist bums have to worry about starving to death on the unemployment dole."
Lady Aban Ceaulosevic says:
"Thank you for your wisdom online, BHB! The honest words of a brave man show lightness of spirit. There is real power in your words!"
Shuddupandkissme says:
"Thank you, Mr. are too kind. I appreciate it. Best Wishes for a healthy and happy New Year. Sincerely, Faye"
Corrine says:
"Happy Holidays Biker... May the New Year bless you immensely! Well I wish you the best and take care alright :)"
