    That would be q1w2e3 - he can't post anything without some excerpt copied and pasted from Wikipedia.


    Glad you took this opportunity to take a jab at someone who is probably one of the smartest members on this forum.

    Not the right-wingers.
    They don't give a damn about facts or the truth.
    They prefer pro-Repub propaganda.

    Other websites, including Google, will be participating. Since the OP didn't mention it, here is some background information for anyone that wants to know more..

    Google has a black bar over their logo. Jesus, imagine if Google shut down for a day. We'd be left with... Bing. *shudder*

    Considering some of the alternatives we've seen, *coughs* that's pretty good.

    Hmm...odd random attack on someone who is really pretty smart.

    Smart is in the eyes of the beholder. At my old college I would be considered middling.

    I just cut and paste for people who are too lazy to look it up themselves. And I haven't done that recently since it's not my job to point out stuff that is easily verifiable and available online if people won't take the mental effort to acknowledge such material.

    Reddit Founder Alexis Ohanian on CNBC: "Why is it that when Republicans and Democrats need to solve the budget and the deficit, there's deadlock, but when Hollywood lobbyists pay them $94 million dollars to write legislation, people from both sides of the aisle line up to co-sponsor it?"
