How old are you? [View all]

Last edited Tue Mar 8, 2016, 12:59 AM - Edit history (1)

I can remember when life was nice,but I am getting old.

One parent work and live in a big house, and new cars every 3-4 years,vacations,ect..

Raygun fucked shit up when he got there,Obama said he would be to the RIGHT of him,Hillary is Obama 3.0?



Disclaimer: Life is still nice for me as I recognized,in Jan of '81.

We are the richest nation on the planet,I don't see it.
