Quote of the Day:

    Houdini: I feel like these should be in a museum rather than a private collection where they may never be studied and never see the light of day for another 100 years.

    Punk: Only one person in the comments under this article agrees with me. Instead of being selfish and burning everything, why not sell the stuff off and donate it to charity. This guy is the reason people hate the rich.

    Black magic: First, can you all stop calling me about Microsoft tech support? Then I will take cyber advice from you. Also this is nothing that the 6 o’ clock news doesn’t warn my 83 year old grandma of each night. He isn’t stopping anyone. If people are stupid online then they are stupid online.

    Age of fact: Yup, we are screwed. All matter of reason and common sense shall bow down to its new overlord or face death. The only reason the other candidates are staying in the race at this point is because they are trying desperately to take delegates away from Trump. While many of the Republican voters like him, none of the Republican officials like him. They saw him as nothing as a joke for the longest time, but forgot how easily persuaded the voters can be.

    I wish less websites had those obnoxious pop ups that ask you to subscribe and warn you about cookies. It seems like every news site does it now, and on a tablet it’s just awful.

    1. Trumps
      The reason why the GOP is so anti Trump has nothing to do with his wall or racism but his stance on ‘free’ trade which will pit him nicely against that Wallstreet whore and he will crush her thereby having both the republican and democratic Washington establishment up in arms as they get their arms twisted by their paymasters (the 0.1 %). Therefor i predict Trump will be out of the race, probably some paid fall guy will shoot him.

        Never said it had to do with the racism, just said they waited too long to make a move against him.
