More proof that it ain’t the 70s any more.

Will future satirists ever be able to do a number on this horrible era of ours? The pedantic, phony-square hipness? Will it all become clear some day?

    There seriously is nothing more irritating than old hippies except for these cry baby milenials.

      Old hippies are quite funny.

      You know what’s irritating to me? Spoiled, ignorant, uneducated, bigoted Republicans who were raised badly in creepy, insular communities.

      And who aren’t conscientious enough to make sure that they spell their words correctly, or even know if they are.

        Semichorus for being a liberal who claims to be tolerant it amazes me how often you soew hate toward those you disagree with. Serously dude get a grip and realize it really is the liberal left who acts like facists and just resorts to name calling in every discussion. I know I once was a liberal and was following that intolerant hate filled direction but I woke up and saw that the name callers are only describing themselves.
