The fact that both the American colonies and Jamaica were possessions of the same empire has nothing to do with the United States of America? The Middle Passage/Triangular trade of slaves/raw materials/manufactured goods that involved the British Empire and her colonies until 1809 had nothing to do with the United Read more

There is nothing else; this was a ratfuck. He acknowledged that he’s slept with people who are in college, but nobody who slept with him seems to care or feel they were mistreated. Just a total hitjob

I was very disappointed when the Millers demonstrated coronavirus doesn’t cause sterility in fascists, but there’s every chance their baby-to-be, and any following children, will grow up to hate their parents so much, the obit for Katie will include the world is a better place without her, and Stephen’s says something Read more

I remember a few years ago, I went to a company luncheon on Mercer Island in Seattle. I rode with my boss at the time and we drove by all these giant houses, real mansions and not the fake prefab kind. They were lovely, but all we could think of was how isolating they were, and how much time they would take to Read more

In other primary news: the part of Georgia where Deliverance takes place is about to send a Q Anon supporter who thinks we witnessed an “Islamic takeover of the United States” in 2018.
