Is this a Headcount event? They are non partisan and hire officials from the worst Democratic Presidential Administration in modern times. It’s great to feel good about us having a democrat in office, but this particular democrat listens to our calls, let’s his VA kill our veterans and made George Bush’s spending look like bargain shopping. Not to mention his countless other issues. We have had the worst two 2 term presidents in history back to back. Al Frankenstein is a typical Minnesota politician.

Remember heads, the key thing here is to stay laser focused on Marx’s theory of Surplus Labor extraction from the workforce. Peace.
