  1. Ahh don’t you just love all the “ big city” things Clayton is getting with all of this housing and road widening? Things like traffic, accidents, crime, not enough schools, not enough fire , not enough roads…… it’s almost like being in paradise.

  2. You know this country is getting bad when the leaders of United States exchange a convicted ARMS DEALER for a basketball player and leave behind a United States Marine that’s been in Russia for 4 years 🤔😷
