I just don't understand why you feel the need to solicit money for what is essentially a collection of quotes, pics, and comments from elsewhere on the web. Literally everything on your "site" can be seen or heard elsewhere everyday. You write no articles or original opinions, yet you beg money. I suppose, lucky for you, there are suckers everywhere. That's what one that donates money to you is, just a sucker. I'm all for bashing the worst president ever and the rebublic**ts, but your site is the worst destination on the web. Have you ever had an original thought? Did I have a good time today? Well, yes I did, now that I've told you how I feel about your lousy site. Get a job, you hack.

Thanks for letting me know I'm a hack. I'll immediately notify my thousands of loyal viewers!


Actually, isn't a newspaper a collection of quotes, pics, and comments?


Don't my original cartoons count as "original thought"? I lost count at 4,000 about 3 years ago.


Who are you really angry at, Jim?

In this photo released by the Florida Keys News Bureau, a tiny solid gold combination toothpick and earwax scoop is displayed inside a clam shell Monday, May 19, 2008, in Key West, Fla. A Blue Water Ventures salvage diver recovered the artifact Sunday, May 18, about 40 miles west of Key West during a search for remains of the Spanish galleon Santa Margarita that shipwrecked in a 1622 hurricane. According to archaeologists, the 3-inch-long grooming tool is more than 385 years old and was probably worn on a gold chain. Estimated value could exceed $100,000.
