  1. @i don’t know mucous… go ask your black dog from Marchand about it instead. He was trained under rf in st. Lucia

  2. Hill guy while you at it what about the pale d@g who gave 7 + millions for the vaccines and we’ve yet to receive one shot. This d@g was groomed in Canada

  3. She should’ve just gone into politics. You can steal legally and don’t face any jail time. Just watch that guy on the hill of hot air near the range that roves all over.

  4. Some people want the big life by taking the short route, and sometimes they are caught and have to do a long sentence and a heavy fine. It is a gamble that is not won by everyone who decides to take that route.
