“If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you, would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem.” – Donald Trump, Jr. on Twitter

If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three could save your life, would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee solution.

If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three could change the world, would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee solution.

If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three could find a cure for cancer, would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee solution.

If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three could end world hunger, would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee solution.

If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three __________________, would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee solution.

Are we willing to fill in the blank? Are you?

About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.

  1. If I had a bowl of Skittles and was told one of them could be Donald Trump, Jr., I’d dump the entire bowl. That’s the Presidential candidate’s dumbass son solution.

  3. Love your responses to Jr.’s idiotic skittle analogy. I also admired the response from the company that makes skittles, which was something like: “Skittles are candy. Refugees are people.”

  5. Excellent.

    three, would elevate a global “flat” world consciousness to the awareness that we are all just “cosmic” refugees lost in space on this enormous sphere, we can’t steer.

    Please, pass the SKITTLES
