The ones who waste time and money on crap like this are not stupid, they are trying to increase the number of tools, fools and idiots of the dark heart of America who support fecal matter of this sort.

I wouldn't. Among the trillion things YOU ignore we find the concept of noa word.

Thanks for being so candid.

In any event, it appears that we disagree! No clue what "we find the concept of noa word" means tho.

It is groovy that I find comments like "in Dog we trust" and "under gog" spectacularly juvenile, while "we find the concept of noa word."

Not sure who "we" is there, but

As a site for skeptics, I am sure that people recognize how *********** ridiculous this claim is
I live in Cali so boneheaded laws are part of daily life.
