  • This is a very far left liberal regressive website. I don’t think I will be returning. Not everything has to involve politics. As interesting as this site is, you ruin the atmosphere of the place with your regressive liberal BS> moving on.

    BTW I am Independent.

          “I don’t think I will be returning.”

          Except to see what everyone’s saying about your online fit, huh? You are dismissed.

  • Dude

    Why do you have to ruin an otherwise interesting post by calling Trump names? I visit this site from fun, and to escape politics. Denigrating candidates reveals you to have an ugly heart and low intelligence. For shame.

    • Jason_Donner


    • The mod for this site is only going to post memes to make fun of your effort to point out the truth. They don’t want a user friendly site. They want one for people that buy into their liberal agenda. Too much politics and not enough brains.

      • Jason_Donner

        Yes, we are only a cog in the insidious leftist agenda because we called Donald Trump an asshole. We should clarify… Donald Trump is not an asshole. If the collective sum of the American population had an asshole, Donald Trump would be that asshole. In summation, Donald Trump is America’s asshole.
