And that's fifteen years potentially, not a couple of weeks.

Yes, but on the other hand one can go round the way and have some of the good old in-n-out without fear of the police, unlike the Bad Place.

I can say that I would much rather keep silent about my opinions (just like we have to do on this forum) rather than keep my กล้วยใหญ่ in my pants.

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

Don't worry, no doubt the offending opinion will soon be removed by the authorities, dead0man.

Who would be offended by such ignorance?
