            I wondered …
            I know I didn’t. On principle. Lizzy Marvelly might’ve featured.

    Every bright person knows the right are knuckle draggers, and on a nearby hate rightwing blog a poster posted this gem
    holysheet
    Shane comes home from work one day, and his wife is watching the Food Network.
    Shane asks, “Why do you watch that? You still can’t cook,”
    His wife responds, “Why do you watch so much porn? You still can’t screw”

      For the number of times you comment on postings done on the nearby right wing hate blog, one has to ask who is the sucker for punishment?

      And if no nazi answers your question on the why the number of upticks on the joke, does that mean there are no nazi’s about here?

      Left Wing Nut Jobs seem to get a kick out of using the nazi word. Wonder if any actually know what the word means?

        No, they don’t. They don’t even spell it right.

        And they have no idea what a gross insult trivialising it is to the millions who were murdered by the real Nazis.

    Nazi – an insult in use long before the rise of Adolf Hitler’s party. It was a derogatory term for a backwards peasant – being a shortened version of Ignatius, a common name in Bavaria, the area from which the Nazis emerged

    Ie red neck.
