Some much needed perspective for the latest media-induced “health crisis.”

Mass vaccinations started in October, but within weeks reports started coming in of people developing Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralyzing nerve disease, right after taking the shot.

Video Wars: Some horrific patriotic crap for the sheeple

Video Wars is a feature we run here periodically. A few years ago, a buddy of mine and I would try to out-mortify one another by sending horrific music video clips.

Anyway, I have no info. on this video, but perhaps it’s best you don’t know the artist or the song title as the names would haunt you forever. Crapitude such as this is best left unnamed.
