I have never seen a single episode of that program, nor will I, but I assume not.

Words are violence. And silence is violence. Basically your existence is violence. Choose accordingly.

but Bush told me there's no sex in your violence, and without reproduction there's no existence, so...


White extinction, exactly. Bush was in on it

Wasn't big brother the one scrutinizing every little thing in 1984? Isn't blueviper just describing our relationships with the more difficult people in our lives? Or social media? I kind of feel like there is a lot of tension for sure, but more people saying more and more things all the time.

I meant that instead of a big government (big brother) controlling thought,speech,history,etc it's turning out to be the general public that is controlling those aspects. The government just has to sit back and laugh.

Yea Minnesota!!!

In a study tracking hundreds of "hyperpartisan" news websites across the country, the Harvard-based organization has exposed many that are “masquerading” as state and local reporting. In reality, they’re often funded and operated by “government officials, political candidates, PACS, and political party operatives.”

Based on previous research by Columbia University’s Priyanjana Bengani, Neiman sifted through these hundreds of urls and pinpointed them on a map of the U.S., all to study how these left or right-leaning news sources are being deployed and where. Minnesota has at least 15 of these little pins studded across the metro and in the greater regions of the state – all with a conservative tilt.

In fact, the vast majority of the sites listed in our state belong to the same network: Metric Media, which claims to have over 1,000 different news sites. Titles include SW Minnesota Today, SC Minnesota News, and South Hennepin News.

You’ll find a lot of the same headlines shared between each, along with an astonishing variety of stock photos depicting stacks of cash money changing hands.

Why would anyone take a comedian whose pseudonym is “big boob” seriously on any level?
