Not picking on you personally Garg, but wouldn't it seem that those two items go hand-in-hand? As long as the party knows they have "reliable" votes then why would they need to change anything?

Another concern would be "sockpuppets"...forons having, and using, more than one log-in name.

Is "gozer" the only name you use on this forum or are there others you also log-in with?

Silly question #347: How'd "grinding" get into this? Do you just have unfulfilled desires relating to marmots or are you just unsure about the concept of parallel construction? Why does it have to be "or"? Can't it be both? Tho, truthfully...you'll have to blame Hank Ketcham for...

Abigail Baxter is a reporter for The Cap Times, but she appears to be mostly entertainment news with no stories from Aug 2016 appearing online with her byline. There are several stories from Aug 2016 about heroin overdoses, but none of these seem to be what Grandma is referring to. http://host.madis...
