    Slightly funny, loves talking about the news, and a total boner killer.

    I coulda sworn when he talked about money corrupting politicians, he was
    going to talk about Bernie Sanders or specifically his supporters.

    On behalf of them I apologize btw.

    I’m a bit glad that my representative has never been mentioned on this
    show. Whenever a congressman or congresswoman is brought up here, it’s
    usually not for a very good reason is it?

    It is fucked up. But aren’t we all? Isn’t everything? Are we all not just
    in a primordial dream of soup and finance. I think so. And I think it will
    all be okay. So just don’t worry your pretty little heads. Anyone want

    I actually think I would rather my tax money be wasted on this so they can

    the flaws in our systems I learn about this one. It makes me wonder how
    this country stays afloat.

    no wonder people though the mafia influenced the government, or big
    business. if their forced to be in those rooms of course they sell
    themselves out to anyone who pay for their campaigns. the issue is why do
    they have to raise so much to their national commitees or even to raise
    funds? i would think they just do their best to fix voter laws so people
    dont think its too much of a effort and votes for you as long as they know
    know who you are.
