I’m going to have some of the special scotch when he ends up in prison.
My cousin Donnie is right you guys…

There are lots of churches that lost members or shut down because of the pandemic, too.

I have a lot of family members that do this in states far from where they live, instead of attending locally in person.
I don’t know about anywhere else but the goal in Texas is very much to break the union and cancel teacher retirement which is actually pretty decent.

You want more you need to allow ordinary decent people be able to vote for you.
To be fair a lot of people do while holding their noses to vote tactically but I don’t think there are more who could debase themselves that far.
