Bank of Barbados excepts freezer money.

The lawmakers need to learn that in Zero’s regime, the head of the Dept. of Injustice does what he wants to do, whether it’s going on junkets, quashing voter intimidation by black radicals, or informing the “civil rights” division to bring no action against minorities who break the law.
