Today's Anti-Sonogram Doonesbury Comic
fuckyeahfeminists: This controversial strip series isn’t being run by a few newspapers across the country. Others are moving it to the op-ed section. Some are only having it available online. Apparently it’s not obscene to have these laws, but it is to talk about them. What does this continue to say about this country? Where are our priorities?

Guns 'N Roses:
Immigrants and faggots
They make no sense to me
They come to our country
And think they'll do as they please
Like start some mini Iran,
Or spread some fuckin' disease

But the people highest up got the lowest self esteem
The prettiest people do the ugliest things
For the road to riches and diamond rings

We trying to buy back our 40 acres
And for that paper, look how low we a'stoop
Even if you in a Benz, you still a nigga in a coupe
Society: UGH, I fucking hate rap music.
