3. Awful. But Fox news is killing Wholesale, not retail.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215883945#post33
Millions of conservative Americans are being brainwashed about the pandemic, and thousands are killing themselves in the process. Yet the media downplay the huge story, framing it simply as ďvaccine hesitancy.Ē

The number of Americans who are dying every 36 hours from Covid now surpasses the total number of U.S. soldiers who were killed during 20 years of fighting in Afghanistan. Itís an entirely preventable crisis, yet it rages because we have people like the red state restaurant owner who is kicking out patrons if they refuse to take off their masks. Itís pure nihilism.


Goddamn NRA. Goddamn QOP. May every fucking member of that Party, from 1962 onwards, suffer in hell for eternity.

5. The full quote is

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.

Itís from Robert A. Heinleinís Beyond This Horizon.

9. I was referring to the quote you deleted from your post.

You wonít care, but for half his life Heinlein was a liberal Democrat. He was very active in Upton Sinclairís EPIC campaign for California Governor.

antiquing at Sheffield and walk around the square.

15. We lived on Mud Island for a while, and then moved to Desoto county. I do think

it's harder when it hits close to home.

18. I won't live in a red state and our state, despite Sandy Hook, is not friendly toward people who mus

have their firearms. If you love guns, don't come here. Go somewhere else and good riddance...
