    The one thing you can count on when the Hispanics are involved is violence and drugas. It is always the same story with these things.

    When I take a smell shi tt in the morning, it is more productive than the average Mexican waste we have living in San Joser.

    Our wonderful area is becoming a second Mexico. It is disgusting that we allowed these things into our state.
    We need Trump to ship all of this brown garbage back across the border and bring in more good hard-working white folks from Europe.
