• Update on weirdness

    Update on site issues: (1. replies now need a title *and* something in the message box, 2. certain links are causing strange pop-ups on Apple devices, and 3. Some folks can't type anything into the text box.) Basically, a series of unfortunate events set us back on testing. We'll get to it as soon as we can, and hopefully things can get fixed by this weekend if not before.  More info: https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/site-problems-more-info/

    2. If he would do that and recognize the State of Palestine,

    he would be leaving on a good note with me.

    4. That should be mandatory and he should tell her what a patriot she is

    for enduring political corruption in the military. He won’t.

    We can thank the rich for one thing - times are changing due to the silent depression in the working class. I don't think the rich will be happy with the changes, but they forced it upon themselves through greed and avarice.

      5. Of course he won't. The bastard thinks this will somehow make us all forgive

      his advocacy for an information state and for putting whistle-blowers in prison. I suppose some might argue that saving one  is better than none. True. But the motivation is so pathetic.

        6. I hear there are still people rotting away in Gitmo.

        Obama needs to give back that NPP.
