Re: RIP thread

incompetence, arrogance and lack of empathy kills much more than all evil combined, just check a few of your dinner plates ;-) Sounds like a monologue interior TBH.. We're all going to die of something; doing nothing is also a decision. The only reason I got the jab is because I want to travel at s...

“always maintain that propaganda has to be truthful. That doesn’t mean he didn’t lie, but it would be a pretty poor propagandist who publicly proclaimed that he was going to lie.”
