If you even want to debate it you're a stupid red neck!
You're from Mayhole? No wonder you're a mess, Lupe. I hear there's a deal on Sharpies over at the 99 Cent Mart. You and your 5 kids (and I know you're just 29) should go over and take advantage...

the whites in the democrat party are just loser traitors

The article went on to say, the chopped up bodies found in mexico were most likely butchered in the tomatoe field and not dumped. Folks these are the same tomatoes imported from mexico,(thanks to NAFTA), that we see on our produce shelves all over the United States. you know, the ones nobody buys because of the deadly insecticides sprayed on these vegetables that our Food And Drug turn their heads too. No i'm not madd. I'm just in AWW. OH MY GAWD!!! I need to let people all over the United States know about this one. Really, to be on the safe side, BOYCOTT MEXICO and Dont buy anything from HELL. Did you know the Pope went to Hell when he went to mexico. And HELL said, we will not kill any mexicans and chop them up while you are here in HELL.
