Indeed. It was just last week that John Lennon said the same thing to me.

He could just ask duckduckgo. Apparently they answer his questions directly.

Selection of lyrics.

"I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocritics
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth
Ive had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth

I'm sick to death of seeing things
From tight-lipped, condescending, mamas little chauvinists
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth now

I've had enough of watching scenes
Of schizophrenic, ego-centric, paranoiac, prima-donnas
All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth

Ah, I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth now"

This must mean that support for BLM is actually good, right?

This is from a year ago, but the sentiment is still valid...

Duckduckgo frequently returns less results, but I find they are generally better quality results, less duplicates, etc. I use both if I don't find what I'm looking for with the first.

Hmmm you could be right.
I searched Black Lives Matter and the very first result that appeared included
Black Lives Matter is a central target of disinformation...

This is a couple years old now, but I see Marxism has gotten to the Christians too
(This is kind of nice to see where common ground can be found, sometimes, with some)

I was just thinking of this old Marxist Christian earlier today.

"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality."

Do you think they just might be one of those biased media sources you keep going on about?
Quick question. Why did they put Trump's head on Biden's body?

I refer you to the KFC meme in Nutek's Funny Farm thread:

Something is definitely off. Trump did lose a couple of chins from being ill I think, but not that much.

You've mentioned Trump's shrunken chins before but, as you know, I refuse to look at his face or listen to his voice at all costs. I've actually gotten pretty good at it. I did inadvertently see about 3 seconds of him outside a few days ago and it looked like one side of his face slid down or something. But it could have just been all of that shit he smeared all over his face.

He definitely lacks tone.

In every possible sense.
