Your point?? God you wokies are so thick and annoying.
...much as I love ya Veg, Y do U have to apply labels to everything (everyone)?

It's the same fish as racism in my eyes.
Then apply it to every person on the planet. And 'everyone' is very broad. Is 'American' a 'label'? Wokism is an 'actual thing'. How else are we supposed to describe 'actual things' other than using the designated word for them?
Trust me, soon U will also label ME a 'wokie' - woteva the fuck that denotes.

Indeed, true. Especially since "trump" is a synonymous with FART.
I do so in honor of the use of “beer virus”.

It’s when the word is employed as an epithet that it reeks of your behavior.

that's the story, yeah

For as long as Mr. Quirk continues to make light of Coronavirus, which as I have a medical background I take seriously, I will make light of one of his heroes, Donald Stump.

Thanks to my autoimmune condition, yes. I would much prefer to die quietly in my sleep, like grandpa did. Of course his passengers did not go quietly.

Then because of a medical view on the world President Trump should be your hero for making a vaccine available in less than a year.

Amazing timing, that the announcement of a vaccine came the day after the election. Just saying.
