I REMEMBER DU [View all]

Last edited Fri Dec 14, 2012, 07:13 PM - Edit history (2)

It was never, ever, EVER like this.

Can we clean house now, please?

Can we return to a basic understanding of right and wrong?

Here's a litmus test: anyone who posted the story about the Chinese guy with the knife in order to mitigate the damage to their raison d'etre...GONE.

For openers.

(on edit: I do not mean anyone who posted the story because it is news...I mean anyone who posted it to say "Durr Hurr see, other things kill people too, Hurr"...and you know who the fuck you are)

I remember DU, and THIS ain't it. I am AMAZED at what is tolerated, even today. Even today. Especially today.

I remember DU.

Do you?



(cross-posted in Meta...go ahead and lock it...I remember DU)
