  1. Andreas Schroeder says

    The interview with Jordan Peterson was great, but the sound quality was awful. It was very difficult to hear him clearly. Regrettable. AS.

  2. Funny how my privilege doesn’t add up with the facts / My only income now is when I take all of my empties back

    • Graham Verdon says

      Ha! 100 bucks you’re Canadian. Taking empties back is our thing! 😉

  3. Michael says

    It’s shameful us Jews are less than thrilled/ to intersect those who want us all killed

    • Michael says

      In fact we ought to sit down and be quiet/ and let Hitler fans direct our riot

      • Michael says

        I don’t see an ‘edit’ button. Reader: kindly strike ‘direct our’ and in its place add ‘take the reigns as we.’ It flows much better that way.

      • Graham Verdon says

        It’s all good. Thanks for your rhymes. Keep them coming.
