      I’ve never had any issues with the site really.

        Do you use Chrome or something else to browse?

          It’s a HUGE story, that’s why.

          Well I mostly use Firefox and every now and again Internet Exploder. Most times when people have that issue on any given site (or all sites), they may have unintentionally expanded the font size with their browser, then closed the browser without reverting back. Some browser settings default to that unless one reverts back. Hold the control button and scroll your mouse wheel until you get the proper font size and close the browser, then open the browser again and see if that sticks.

        I’ve made no tweaks on my end, and all my Americans Against Portable Font stories read that way.

          i’m a complete idiot about my own computer, and i’m going to upgrade this month (! very excited!)…i am going to really go step by step as i set up my stuff how i want it…so i know what the hell, i hope!

          i currently have an Acer Netbook–and i love this little thing! it’s perfect for what i do–chat online at comment boards… ๐Ÿ™‚
          alas…windows no longer supports XP, and i might as well get a whole new little netbook…i cannot decide if i should simply upgrade to a new Acer Netbook…or splurge a bit, and get a Chromebook…or that Windows thing…any advice??

    if tasers are used as people prods , think what a bigger, longer one on a stick could do to a Kow.
    It’s a good thing the USA doesn’t treat Kows like humans, otherwise we’d be the laughing stock of the World Kow Rights Commission.

    Using tasers like cattle prods, on a human being.

    The man they killed was, of course, Black.

    Conservatives don’t consider people like that to be even human. To them, they are nothing but chattel. Property. Cattle. Worse than second class citizens: they wouldn’t even treat livestock this way. No wonder so many conservatives have called African-American protesters “animals”. They truly believe that whites are the master race.

    The cops are becoming jackbooted Nazis.
