I don’t know why My comments are not going through or they are not printing them . I am just telling people on this site the FAKE MRLIC wrote the 2 Feb. 18, comments. The one on immigrants people who read here should know, I am only against Illegal Immigration not LEGAL immigration.


If this guy was not such an obvious clown in a costume, we would be able to tell who he is by the name on his jacket. But by the looks of his beard, he is just pretending to be a gas station worker who wears polo sweatshirts with an artisanal beard. You should be able to find him on a barstool at a local brewery or at an overpriced bearded person coffee shop somewhere working more on his style that on his substance.


MRLIC, of course you can blame this on immigrants…..but without any concrete information about either person, you would simply be stating more about you lack of intelligence than anything else.
