You've not yet broken the sound barrier?
So what did you say your own personal 'IQ' is, 'israeliteknight', relative to that of Barack Obama (who, by the way, happens to be POTUS of that "finely-tuned Boeing 777 which is actually flying at almost the speed of sound"?
If you wish to carry the metaphor further, 'israeliteknight', Barack Obama may be regarded as the 'pilot', so to speak, of that "finely-tuned Boeing 777 which is actually flying at almost the speed of sound"! (I really don't understand how come it hasn't yet broken the sound barrier, considering that 'israeliteknight' is HIMSELF a passenger on that "finely-tuned Boeing 777").
I note that at israeliteknight's fatuous website "The Christian Party: Father's Manifesto" (http://fathersmanifesto.net/), he had graciously granted Barack Obama an 'IQ' of 72 or something of that level!
So, 'israeliteknight', just what DID you say your 'personal IQ' is - relative to that of your President, Mr Barack Obama?
Oh, you DIDN'T say?
Feeling a trifle nervous, are we, 'israeliteknight'?
GSC ("Still Shoveling!") The rest of israeliteknight's 'high-IQ' post follows, for the laughs it could provide. But the best laughs of all will be from that website "The Christian Party: Father's Manifesto" (http://fathersmanifesto.net/) - this is GUARANTEED! > > ('israeliteknight'): There's nothing either country > can learn from such a comparison.
