This will continue to increase now theat Royal Oak will let a liquor store to open across from Finn. Guess the church sold out. Next mayb we can get a pawn shop or another motel. I think we have enough liquor stores.

Wow --Big Truth coward spewing hateful threatening nonsense using a Fake Name--Guess we'll be able to pick you out of the crowd marching in the Memorial Day parade this morning wearing the pointy white hood. Flagged your threatening hate talk as inappropriate over an hour ago--wondering how long before you're deleted.
