    "No more of that until the end of time." So, when that Martin Sheen video finally airs we can wink and lick pinecones again? I'm okay with that, John ;)

    "Labor Day"--a day with utterly no meaning in America since millions of us still work that day. And actually, we have to work harder that day because kids have off school (usually, just a week or so after it's restarted) and annoying people visit businesses on "their" holiday.

    He is such a traitor to common sense and humanity in general. He has such a holier than thou attitude that he's actually a white knight champion for the little people but he's just another fake liberal whose hypocrisy should make his fucking head explode. Just saw him doing that maher stick where he has a ongoing attack a politician (Yes of course it was a conservative/white) And he's attacking the guy as some horrible fucking racist because he doesn't care about Kwanzaa. Excuse me Fucking Doolittle, But anyone who does the slightest research into the History of Kwaza knows that it's a piss ant black racist's attempt at creating his own type of Mormon fucking religion(Only with Mormons not being filled with hate for those who are not Mormons) Good job for inciting the hate that you pretend to find against. Fucking Hypocrite POS!!!

      Nick Spears I know this is really late but it was a fashion rule after the Civil War. There was a baby boom which is par for the course after a war. A lot of economic policies were passed by the federal government which was mostly controlled by the North. Because of this we got a highly mobile middle class shooting up into the upper class. Women in the upper class made strict fashion rules to separate old money from new money. Basically it's a trend started by elitist snobs so they could tell each other apart from those they looked down on.

    John, we in The South already have the comment about "that's interesting" covered...we DO say "bless" but we say "Oh, well, BLESS your heart" in a sugary, syrupy Southern accent and drag out the "aaaahhhh" sound in heart. It totally works, without people getting offended, from what I can tell anyway.

    I would love to hear John ( the Jew ) Oliver explain wobbly Hilary :) Maybe he can use the old commercials "Help I have fallen and I can't get up" and say they have a new model. But he won't. John (the Jew) Oliver is paid big bucks to push the made-to-order Clinton candidacy. Lots of people are hoping subservient Clinton to become president, and John is doing the dirty work for them.

      It goes back over a 100 years. You were white in summer to keep cool, and labor day marks when the days get colder and the kids go back to school from summer vacation. But it became a fashion rule in the 1880's when a bunch a rich high society women decided to create a bunch of arbitrary fashion rules to show off how better/sophisticated they are. It's something that stayed strong until the 1970's when free love and not giving a shit about what's "high class" became more in more culturally acceptable.
