"Like you (albeit for different reasons), I don't give a flying fark where such people are "coming from". My tolerance for asshats is in the rearview mirror."

"Suggestion is the most powerful tool we have to guide change, wether good or bad. The far right has become quite deft in using misinformation, disinformation and lies to guide the populace to think as they wish. They started their assault by…"
