    Is there a reward for turning him in?
    It’s a good picture, someone knows him, but money talks. You gotta through a bribe to the rat ?

    In other news: Wells Fargo has been steeling from everyone by devaluing the currency through fractional reserve lending and predatory loans.

    St. George needs a border with National Guard. They come over to traffic drugs, rob banks, rob pharmacies, and steal formula from Walmart’s. : – )

      Maybe just make the wall along the southern border and have it block off California too, Mexico can have it back.

        It’s actually a bit too disappointing to me to to find it funny. Ironically, mexico basically already does “have it back”.

          Pretty much the same as you and the other LDS members own Utah eh ?

            I’m not LDS but this state is run near perfect compared to California IMO
