Send them to Chicago or

Send them to Chicago or Detroit and they will fit right in with the locals or to the middle east but I doubt the military would want such degenerates. What disturbed young kids that think they are cool--Not.

If you would have

If someone would have told me when I left Augusta 18 years ago, that when I moved back last year it would be like this, I would have stayed my butt overseas. At least over there you have to know the language to understand whats going on.

I've actually gone to this

I've actually gone to this club with my boyfriend and two friends. We had a great time and the crowd was not full of convicted felons brandishing firearms. Sometimes you have idiots that spoil the fun for everyone else and this is no exception.
