ya know, there are more of us than there are of them so this might be a good fight to take on. i can easily switch away from one list and on to the other list once it is spelled out.

Every day in every way Freepers prove they're totally insane.

Heh this kind of stuff is always stupid. But yeah keep on drinking Coors. I'll stick to drinking actual beer.

I loved Jon Stewart's take on Conservatives rallying around Chick-A-Fil:

"There's no better way to show your opposition to gay marriage than splitting a pair of buns and gobbling down some hot greasy cock".

I just bought a new laptop which is not a Dell. Dell makes a shitty product, that's enough of a reason to not buy one.

As long as we are making lists, anyone who is not a fan of the Koch brothers needs to make a point of avoiding the following Georgia-Pacific paper products:

Angel Soft toilet paper
Quilted Northern toilet paper
Soft n Gentle toilet paper
Brawny paper towels
Dixie plates, bowls, napkins and cups
Mardi Gras napkins and towels
Sparkle napkins
Vanity Fair napkins
Zee napkins

I am surprised that Ford is not on the "boycott" list. Ford is gay-friendly.

I didn't think anything could make me like Starbucks even a little
