Politics And Current Events

Woah...hey shmenguin...how's it going...?
Hi mikey. Personally, things are going wonderfully. Thank you.

Snark aside, I think we’re all likely in a great deal of trouble, though. Wanted to stop by and see if that had sunk in ‘round these parts. The answer appears to be...sorta kinda.

Sorry. I just can’t get over a politician being hokey and disingenuous. THE issue of our time. Are you all not concerned? I’ll do an AMA after we save the republic from this garbage.

The ADL doesn’t decide what gestures and fashion statements hate groups adopt. Just because it’s silly doesn’t mean it’s not a thing.

Are people getting bowl cuts as an explicit homage to Dylan Roof? Yes? Are people making the OK sign as an explicit gesture of white supremacy? Yes? Now I know. Which is the point. It doesn’t mean I go call the police because the 4 year old next door has a similar haircut. I’m simply informed about ...
