God knows what else they have.

I don't give a shit what you do with your own life, whether you make it a success or a failure, that is the outcome of the choices you make, but please take responsibility for yourself and don't make ME pay for YOUR choices and we're all good.

Repeal the 17th Amendment and the Apportionment Act of 1911!

I had the feeling, it was true, because that would be a great way to spy, for a few months I had a creepy feeling, so I would stick something over my cam lens too. Interesting post

By the way, every time I see your screen name/avatar, I can't help but think, "Hi...not you. Hi."

Or we could encase our phones in concrete and when we need to make a call we bust out very small pieces of c4. Maybe it's time to go back to those old shitty flip phones that once were the beez kneez.
