LISTEN to what candidates say and research what they have done and maybe these Tea People will stop voting against their own better interests.
    This, combined with the GOP war on women, will destroy all of us and create the Great Republican Caliphate!

  • To w jaki sposob sa traktowane pokojowki, przekracza granice czlowieczenstwa,
    14 pokoi
    , czy Renie, Menager ma o tym pojecie, sadze ze nie
    . Powinni mu dac jeszcze bata,
    Bo hyba Lora i Renie zapomnieli ze niewolnictwo w Angliy juz zniesione
    Wiem poniwewz pracowalam tam 8 miesiecy. Nie ma rozmowy z pracownikiem,
    nic mu sie nie nalezy, urlop daja ci kiedy im sie podoba. Takie czasy juz minely, conalmniej 120 lat temu. Glupota rzadzi. Czlowiek ktory jest pederasta przewodzi kobietami, a wiec z natury swojej nie lubi kobiet. Nie rozumie czym jest rodzina, kim jest dziecko. To porazka zachodniej cywilizacji
