I compulsively clean because of the hoarders in my family. I get the same sense of relief from getting rid of something that they get from buying something. I don't have to deal with it personally anymore though because my mother "disowned" me earlier this year. Sure does save on christmas presents.

No, not all white people were against welfare but the people against welfare are mostly white. As such, I addressed white Americans specifically. Pretending like this covers a cross-section of Americans is patently dishonest.

Isn't anyone else kind of rooting for him getting shot on the doorstep of the person he's delivering the painting to, because they felt threatened?

I was suffering from a really really bad case of mono one time and I thought I was just tired, unable to eat, and yellow-looking because I wasn't sleeping due to finals. I only went to the hospital when I peed a rusty orange color and fainted in a public restroom, but of course I waited 3 days first. My boyfriend on Read more

Because you don't give a hoot about integrity and only care about money. And you know, a guy who is mostly known for writing a footballers biography sounds like such a great fit to continue this epic feminist story :-(
