Some people just can't stand a little good news.

Remember America - as per Nobama and MA Senator Hiawatha Warren - "you did NOT build that". It was Big Bloated Govt that made it possible for you to build a company and employ people.

Yes, Chief Spreading Bull. For my next job I am going to claim that I am a Native American. When I go on trial I wonder if the same Elizabeth Warren fans will protest for me to at least be excused and released.
