Take utmost care what one chooses to post.

Once one submits, deletion is futile.

Even if one could somehow divert it from archives.net, & Yahoo Cache, & Google Cache, etc., there are no known warez that are a prophylactic against screen-captures.

Then weaponize THAT brain-fart, by frenetically slopping a bullshit topping on their bullshit-burger made of “Dems Will Have Your Kids Beheading Each Other & Reading the Koran 24/7″ … & dig right in?

I strongly suspect the evil force of Bad Pharmaceuticals here at work.

21st-Century Yankeestan may need a Mandatory Elected-Member Detox Program even worse than it needs radical electoral reform. Indeed, the lack of the former may inherently render the latter futile.
