I truly should have flagged this as offensive, because it is. "High on the hog"? I make a little more than that 50 grand a year you speak so highly of. And it's not high on the hog.

Judas Priest, I am so sick of the mindless rabble, the 'useless idiots' that the left herds into the voting booths every 4 years with their lies and disinformation. Grow up, get a spine, and make something of YOURSELF, or leave those who do so alone!!!
