Sometimes you run across something vile hidden in something benign.

Hags of Lag – *Thunderfoot doesn’t get Regressive Crap II – Electric Boogaloo

Well he is at it again! I have been sat on this for a while because stuff kept happening that required me to run around and be busy. I just attended an all day medical conference (on Breast Cancer and Reconstruction) and figured I need to unwind a bit. (I do have a post about …

A Voice for Me/n – I Cannot Respect You and the People Who Associate With You
