2020 The Big New Yorker Won't Last Long
Compiled by fredthebear

Go to McAlister's Deli (national restaurant chain) and give this beefy sandwich a try. Don't forget the pickle! (The more you chew, the less you say, and that can keep a person out of trouble! A person does not need to tweet out their every mood either.)

This quote fits the American mainstream media malpractice...

"When the debate is lost, SLANDER becomes the tool of losers." - Socrates

Note that many of these games are fast time controls.
