some of the wise asses who deign to campaign against this wonderful country should thank the likes of Cpl Loring who fought and died for their freedom to do so. I cannot stomach those frauds who do not deserve to live in a place that they rail against. Don’t like it here? Leave. I assure you that you won’t be missed.
