Good to see some old well-worn names - the forum's been looking a bit tired recently.

Re: WTF in America

so that'll be a no, then, to an example of a Dem legislator proposing revocation of 2A. Methinks I'm not the one who is living in a bubble, listening to what the Conservative media want you to think...

Re: WTF in America

No. Ted Cruz, and others like him who take NRA money and parrot their talking points, are exactly the problem. If the GOP legislators, at all levels of government, would actually for a moment or two...

Re: Let's talk about cars

It's probably some sort of sacrilege on this thread, but I'm looking for opinions on fully-electric or plug-in hybrid cars. It's not long until middle child will be learning to drive. She will need a...

Re: Canada is a scam

Wow. Way to double-down on the racism.

"They were not well liked" because of "horrid" and "obnoxious" cooking odours. To the extent that immigrants were hounded out of the apartment building. And...
