We have DUers talking about using bulldozers on Gaza [View all]

About getting ar15s

About all manner of things I honestly would have sworn I'd never see on du

Do people really not see this is how and why it never ends?

I can't help but see this as a very bad sign of things to come, when climate change starts affecting the food supply.

We have to be better at not marching to the drums of war every time those whose interests they serve start beating them.
