  • buggfire says:

    i find it very disgusting how the emanations of other people's cultures are typecasted and marketed as entertainment to be consumed in another, an to sink as low to coin it a meme, when that very culture is the product of the fallacy of reality in which they are the victims of. and they are not standing up for themselves and i have to do it for them. o ignorance thy seduction is most efficacious! it is such a waste of time, but if so, why should anyone do anything then but what pleases them?

  • Davidddddde says:

    in an instance male genitalia occupied a large area around me

  • JimPrower says:

    @1x800xPOCKETS The gentlemen see me making sport of their carefully crafted discussion. They dissapprove, thus are reporting me to the authorities and are attempting to observe me sharing sexually explicit images of underage people on the internet.

    "My frozen dairy beverage bringeth all the gentlefolk to the yard, and they claim, 'Surely, 'tis better than thine! Surely, 'tis better than thine!' I'd instruct you, though I must levy a fee." I have that one as my desktop background.

  • TheMarziman says:


  • Snowflake70 says:

    Anything and everything that glorifies rap along with rap itself needs to be
    flushed in the bowels of the great porcelain crapper. Generated by a mental deficiency / abnormality of nature or mutant perversion of that which can or may be perverted. Deplorable and pathetic say I. Can you tell it pleases me not?

    "Far be it from me to imply that she is a covetous lady...

    We hath endured the majority of our existences living in a ruffian utopia.
    Procreators simply fail to perceive.
    We require a modicum of contention, for it would be quite vacuous in my absence.

  • FluffyBunniesOnFire says:

    Thou hath precipitated an explosive device upon my person, ye bairn.
    Thou shouldst evaluate thyself in precedence to devastating thyself.
    My cognition recommends in the negative, while my anatomy asserts affirmatively.

  • nVei06 says:

    just a note how these brain dead expressions came. The jew thought it wise to tax the honest man and empower the dishonest man. The Jew also felt it right to make sure that black people are not educated. Together, you have uneducated dishonst people living off government subsidies taxed on honest people. Working guy, works for nothing, dishonest guy live easy they don't even need to speak english. They get the free house free clothes free food free school and they never have to work.

  • nVei06 says:

    They are also treated with special privileged. YOu can not call a black people with any negative anything while they can be as negative as they want. They also can walk all over any white people they want, but you can not even drive in a black community without being attacked and murdered. Therefore the woman sees the power of this, and the society flows thusly.

  • nVei06 says:

    the time is comign to kill the jew. and all the liberals. they will all be killed.
