    Forgot something which I included here in RAINBOW in the post

    Moreover, when I search for "Hodgkinson," which was the name of the shooter at the Congressional softball practice a few years back, so I could find posts I made mentioning examples of liberal violence since I was going to start a thread expanding upon previous posts, guess what I found.

    Nada.

    I think that was the one I spent nearly two hours hunting before catching a mention.

    And even though I posted the OP two weeks ago, when I checked our search for "Hodgkinson" a few minutes ago, this is what I still get:

    The thing is broke.






    1 I use it to find posts of mine on how many of Trump's "lies" are obvious hyperbole and the like since WaPo 'fact checked' him on a claim of having so many hamburgers that if stacked would be a mile high.

    They found the claim to be false

    for example I searched for "geocentric" and it came back with the various posts and threads from way back to 2014.

    I'm not the only one who mentioned that our search is worthless.

    Some websites may try to restrict links directly to their pictures.
