Re: Uk Referendum on The EU Announced for 23rd June.

Because there is more to it than your experience as a voter. Imagine being in charge of organizing all those sites, hiring all the workers, making sure everything is in place and ready and everyone gets those little cards shipped to them AND properly marked.

Re: Uk Referendum on The EU Announced for 23rd June.

You do realize that "comedy" and "having a message" are not, and never have been, mutually exclusive? In fact, the vast majority of comedy DOES have a message, at least implicitly. And, honestly, I feel like you don't actually watch the show at all, and judge it entirely based o...

That show is pure propaganda. Like I used to watch it back when it at least pretended to be news wrapped in comedy but now a days its just got a message to push and wont stop until it's shoved down as far as it can go. Which is sad, I used to like it.

Re: Attempted Trump assassination

If it's not fascist, what the hell was Nazism, then? Basically they are two similar ideologies that evolved paralel to one another and suffered from cross pollination. One is not a subgroup of the other. A good way of looking at it, I find is to to see it as a different sect of the same religion. L...
