Well, it seems perfect for Rob…


LOL the PC police are at it again. Ever heard of the first amendment?

My last pay check was $ 9500 working 10 hours a week online. My Friend’s has been averaging 14k for months now and she works about 21 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out



God damn it. I took a few minutes to clear my browsing history only to come back to find you bastards have deleted all my comments AGAIN! What’s the matter? Scared of the truth???
