It has been reported that a lot of people have unwanted gift cards as Christmas gifts.

I don’t see what is so unwanted about receiving a gift card.

I love receiving gift cards. Then I can pick out what I really want.

I wish I could get all of the gift cards that these ungrateful recipients…

It is starting ...

I was outraged to read that the alt-right organization Turning Point USA has produced a “Professor Watchlist” soon after Donald Trump won the elections.
