  5. More Sinatra, the big Dic needs to return .

    By D Martin on Jul 8, 2020

  6. Oops! Last one. I just can’t stop thinking about penises. That’s it.

    By U L E on Jul 8, 2020

  7. I love The Beatles, but at this point in the “Get Back/Let it Be” sessions, I want them to break up, or at least stop and take a long vacation. I’m glad they managed to make one more good album before they split, but it’s too bad the couldn’t give the best songs from these sessions the same level of production and care that went into “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” and other filler on Abbey Road.

  8. Well there’s one sure way to not have to listen to this asshole don’t download it
    what the fuck
    it’s completely pointless remarking on BigO posting it…have you seen the other garbage posted usually?
    And you complain about this ???????

    By The Grim Reaper on Jul 9, 2020

  9. Yer right on daddy….fuck this asshole Eric

  10. What is privilege?
    Privilege is wearing $200 sneakers when you’ve never had a job.
    Privilege is wearing $300 Beats headphones while living on public assistance.
    Privilege is having a Smartphone with a data plan which you receive no bill for.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  11. Privilege is living in public subsidized housing where you don’t have a water bill, where rising property taxes and rents and energy costs have absolutely no effect on the amount of food you can put on your table.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  12. Privilege is the ability to go march against and protest against anything that triggers you, without worrying about calling out of work and the consequences that accompany such behavior.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  13. Privilege is having as many children as you want, regardless of your employment status, and be able to send them off to daycare or school you don’t pay for.
    Privilege is sending your kids to school early for the before school programs and breakfast, and then keeping them there for the after school program…all at no cost to you….paid for by the people who DO HAVE TO DEAL WITH RISING TAXES AND COSTS!…you know, us so-called “PRIVILEGED” the ones who pay while you take, take, TAKE!
    I’d rather you said thanks and went on your way.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  14. Free speech is especially important when it’s a message you might not agree with, this enables other to have alternating opinions and still live in a free society. It’s a mistake to police speech and it erodes our basic human rights, even if you disagree with someone they should have their own opinion. When you spit on someone or put your hands on someone though, that’s when it becomes assault. THIS IS FOR MARK

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  15. seems to me that freedom of speech is no longer free, unless you are spouting the accepted politically correct lines as put forth by the thought police… I may not agree with you statements but I sure am happy to support your right to say what you want and think as you wish. I only require you to allow me to speak against you is your ideal are objectionable to me.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  16. I am a FUCKING ASSHOLE.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  19. David, I’m ignoring the last two (fake) posts. These morons aren’t even trying anymore.

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  20. Yeah I know. Makes as much sense as the anarchist group Black Lives Dont Matter. Its bizarro world. Right is wrong. Wrong is right.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  21. I’ve tried to get the fakes banned. It’s a waste of time.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  22. Black guys are way bigger and better than white guys in bed . Penis envy guys .

    By Rhonda on Jul 9, 2020

  23. I envy anyone with a penis.

    By U L E on Jul 9, 2020

  24. It’s obvious that Rhonda and U L E are the same person. What a sicko.

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020
