Kill myself. @mikemchargue Not bathrooms, tho. Heaven forfend.You despicable, loathsome hypocrite. is our national shame - one of many. @VP and @PRyan betray us all when they pander to the medical insurance lobby.We are the only western nation that treats healthcare like a privilege for the successful instead of a fundamental human right.Making choices between seeing doctors and buying food isn't freedom. Dying because you can’t afford care isn't irresponsible.The GOP’s attempt to reframe health care as an issue of “freedom and individual responsibility” is utterly detestable. @bassguy 180? @danielpunkass Only exceptions are the “digital coupons” you load to your card # from the web site. @danielpunkass Yes, presumably to keep pace with what Shaw’s does.the struggle is real today that Stop & Shop no longer uses that damnable loyalty card for sale discounts, just for gas points.Sounds like he needs a safe space. climate change isn’t real. about five minutes of the DNC debate last night before giving up.

Got signed to a major label and everything went to hell after tha… u can’t even and @dominos to the rescue @marrathon Is there a way you are familiar with to reorder sound output device preferences (like the Wi-Fi tab under Network). @BernieSanders “Freedom.” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ @nowallthetime I intersect with a lot of his views but he’s a wretched polemicist and just generally a shitty host. @wkamaubell We're leaving Babylon, y'all! @marypcbuk comes with a free bale of marijuana hiding a dirty bomb. @nowallthetime @HBO @billmaher It’s okay because it’s straight pedophilia, not gay pedophiia.
