    Re: The Gays* Only Thread

    Yeah, that story is insane and the pictures - there's more of them out there - are terrifying. I usually believe in rehabilitation vs endless punishment. This fucker should never be freed again.

    Re: Standing in the unemployment line

    Yup, been there. But why aren't you web certifying? It's much faster and more reliable. I web certified on Sunday and had funds in my account by Tuesday morning.

    Bernie 2016?
