Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm
Handy Haversack:

↳ Todd-o-phonic Todd @3:14
GB by 4.5 seems like a pretty reasonable line. Lions have no D at all. Bagpipe put up 17 on them, and he's ten years old and a dog. Seems like the Packers are figuring out their O just in time. That said, they could always get too cute and outsmart themselves. I figure they win, but it might be closer than the spread.

Others may argue that the increasing rivers of blood - of the tiniest schoolchildren - of in fact - anybody anywhere - holding us all to ransom for our lives - *@ gunpoint* - & @ all times
- is being significantly euphemismed & downplayed & in fact denied - to ever more lethal effect
...stripping us of our Right to LIFE - as asserted in the Declaration of Independence - which establishes the very most fundamental reasons to have a USA whosoever & in the first instance - as God given & inalienable - free from the tyranny of any Institution.
All justified by the threadbare & single sentence that is the 2nd Amendment - which in fact nevertheless specifies that Arms in the USA are for defending the sovereign nation - & - *not one thing more* - & - most specifically - in a *well-regulated* manner.

Shortly after the song was released, Jack Sager of the Cookin’ label put advertising signs around Boston reading “Jackie Shane for President.”
