  3. there is no value in anything you post. it might as well be fun proving you wrong over and over.
  4. you. you did. repeatedly. you claim that you can tell if someone is mentally ill by looking at them. why do you need to lie about everything? your posts are still there to read.
  5. You should be warned that you may experience some degree of lead poisoning, which may make you dumber and slightly insane.
  6. Go buy 4 or 5. They're cheap and easy to get. Once you buy one, you will not only be safe from crime, but able to tell just by looking at people whether they're mentally ill or dangerous.
  7. more guns make everything safer. they're magic. they can prevent bombs on planes, so who needs TSA?
  8. no merry go round. just clowns. 🤡🤡
  9. Biden, not Bernie. Facts still matter to some people.
  10. I suppose you could just break up your company into a bunch of affiliated corporations, none of which make over $100 million.
  11. half of women killed in gun homicides are killed by their current or former spouse or domestic partner. they're the problem, so we should focus on convicted domestic abusers and stalkers and restrict their access to guns, right? isn't that the focus on criminals that you keep claiming to support?
