    Ah yes,,, the democrat plantation. So, who paid the medical bill for the victim? Obamacare? Who’s going to step up and pay for the stereotypical democrats incarceration? Would it be the residents at Mosby?

    you’re a jack***. good thing you’re perfect. Stop wasting your time blaming everything wrong in the world on democrats. How about you go out there and make a difference. Be the change of what you feel is wrong. Go get involved with the republican party and take some action. Oh wait, you’re all talk as I suspected. You’re just as bad as the democrats that you complain about.
