And the Show Resumes, the Zurk.
I always mean what I Post. I will never put any fellow nation on ignore for any personal or political reasons. I hate to see any fellow nation banned from NS forever, because we all love NS. I will only report any nation I think might have broken an NS rule of decency towards me. But even then, I have looked the other way many times, will look the other way many times. But If I think they went too far, I have no choice. I might report on the behalf of a person I think I owe a favor to.

If you want proof you can look it up on Pornhub or the like.
Crimes committed by Muslims will be proof of a pan-Islamic plot and Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand, crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of mentally ill lone wolves who do not represent their professed belief system at all.

If he was given an actual confirmation hearing it wouldn't be too hard to air any actual Garland dirty laundries.

But they didn't subject him to a smear campaign such as this.

That Repubs are god-level hypocrites is news to no one, Dems simply wanted to show them that it takes two to tango. Let's stop pretending like this is about getting a fair hearing on these allegations.
