  1. Don’t you just love what a socialist- communist democrat open southern boarder will do for your beloved community folks. Mother’s, Daughter’s, Wive’s and Sister’s, keep on voting your safety away for every vote you make with the mark of the D beside thier name is the end of civilization as you know it.

    • If you were an eye witness, Terry, then you need to talk to the police. Otherwise, what does the southern border have to do with this situation, unless you saw who did it.

      • JD, It has the same amount of weigt as does the mark of the D beside of our elected officials names that are allowing our southern border to flood our once peaceful civilization with drugs and gang memebers. JD, the space or line that separates civilization and a unlawful war-torn carnage of what use to be a great country is very thin. Once that line has been destroyed our own federal, state and local authorities will retreat just as it did in Afganistan. JD, I have to assume you thought you would have never seen the carnage that our now President with the mark of the D beside his name allowed to happen in this once lawful civilization that collapsed within weeks called Afganistan? These far left socialist-communist Democrat government so hates what you citizens stand for that they are bringing this horrible inhuman suffering straight to our door steps, in hopes that all we love will for once be brought down to the same thrid world suffering. Yes JD, the political party with the mark of the D beside thier name doesn’t want to bring the rest of the world up to our standards. They want to drag our nation down to match the third world nations and JD I have to aggree with you I don’t want to believe it is happening ether.

      • JD, you’d be better off just ignoring terrybarns. They believe everything is the fault of democrats or people coming through the southern border and they won’t listen to reason.

        • I know, I just like to poke that crazy bear and see what nonsense his brain and fingers can come up with. Terry, get some psychiatric help. You really need it. And again, what does the southern border or Democrats have to do with a bullet-riddled car in Smithfield? America has been violent forever – it’s nothing new.

  2. JD I am so thankful for the folks like you. I honestly do wish there would be more as yourself that would articulate how your candidate with the mark of the D beside thier names are not participating in flooding our country with a third world society in hopes of collapsing the system. We have a blue state Governor and until recently we have not seen the smash and grabs that has dominated our local jewelry stores similar to other blue states such as California. Slowly turn up the fire under the pot of water and the frog inside never notices until it is to late. Store shelves are more bare than in my recent history, new car dealerships are bare and prices climbing ever so high at a panic rate. Millions are crossing the southern border with no financial means of providing for them self. Thier children will be needing a education and your local school bord will be needing many more tax dollars from your homes for this, as our citizens bares even more cost for private schools to protect thier kids from the “Squad of CRT Cult”. JD, you feel you will be left alone because of baring the mark of the D beside your name on the voter role, how wrong and niaeve you and many more are.
