Someone has proposed a brilliant alternative to Trump's proposal to ban all Muslims from entering America. Challenged as to how to determine whether one was a Muslim, Trump said to simply ask. If the person says "yes," then no, that person is refused entry.
Problem: Muslim doctrine encourages a devotee to lie to an infidel. You can read about permitted lying here: LYING: JUST DO IT
Solution: And so the brilliant alternative to asking: require them to eat a bacon sandwich.
Problem: This is discriminatory - to Jews and vegetarians.
Partial solution: As an option, allow them to pray a Jewish prayer.
So, sadly, vegetarians screw up the plan.
I'm mostly vegetarian, because I am diabetic. Oh, and the real reason: you are what you eat; accordingly I don't want to be a chicken, turkey, ham, shrimp or fruitcake. There are, however, those who say I'm nuts.
PROOF: Thursday, someone told Wifey that her husband is quite the wit.
Her humbling response: "You're half right."
So, you see, vegetarians are the reason we cannot prevent Muslims from entering the United States. Sorry about that, Trump.
TOP SECRET (please don't disseminate): We just might offer those wanting entry a bacon sandwich that the CIA, unbeknownst to anyone, has replaced the bacon with a vegetable bacon-imposter.
My own remedy: bacon roulette: Offer the bacon sandwich. Only one out of three is real bacon. That way, vegetarians can take the chance in good conscience, that they were fakin' bacon.
And peace on earth descends upon the land. [end of Harris remarks - source to follow]
Why take the Trump stunt seriously?
The Washington Post
It is embarrassing even to embark on such arguments. To treat “no Muslims allowed” as a serious idea is to give credit to what is little more than a clever stunt by a man who saw Ted Cruz beating him for the first time in the Iowa Monmouth poll and five hours later decided it was time to seize the stage again.
This got the thinkers going again. National Review’s Andrew McCarthy, whom I (otherwise) hold in considerable esteem, spent 1,000 words trying to tart up the ban in constitutional and statutory livery, stressing — hilariously — that he is dealing with the Trump proposal “in its final form.” As if Trump’s barstool eruptions are painstakingly vetted, and as if anything Trump says about anything is ever final.
Within less than a day, that opportunity was wiped out. Once again, it’s the Donald Show.
