Looking back on 2015

Normally a post like this would be reserved for looking back at all the rest of the posts over the course of the year, and we’d all reminisce about our favorites or some such. But seeing as how this blog only started less than a month ago, such a post would be a tad premature. […]

Then they pissed and they moaned […]

Whether or not you agreed with him on his various stances, you had to at least pause to consider his thoughts, […]
