Walking Dead ping!
Please let me know if you would like on or off The Walking Dead ping list.
Simple times. lol. A few more people concerned about how to pay the mortgage over doomsday 20 years ago and we might not be in the mess we are in today...

There will be food (USA—remember?), but toys and fuel will be scarce.
The Progressives feed on our life force.
