    The goof-ball on here, assuming the names of regulars and posting things they don’t say, needs to be banned.
    This is a free country, and I’ll believe what I want to for whatever reason I want to. If you think it’s hateful and racist, too bad! You’re doing nothing to further your cause and likely not paying for endless amount of people, you assume this country can support, without consequences.

      What does Turkey Hill have to do with this? Do you even know who did it?… OK by your logic we should ban the St. Patrick’s Day parade or Pierogi Festival parade the next time (and there have been plenty of times already and on this site now) a person of Irish or Polish descent commits a crime. What utter nonsense.

      BTW. I’ll give Lloyd some props re 9/11. So called “christians” love to crow their “moral superiority” over over religions. Yet they refuse to practice even the most basic tenant of christianity: brotherly love. Terrorists sow seeds of fear and hate, stand back and watch as these so-called christians nurture them into trees of racism that divide our community. And then yes, the terrorists have won. (Trump also is a master of fomenting this kind of hatred and division for his own political and economic fortune at the expense of you and me).

        You don’t know what your talking about and lumping all people into a negative group, plus showing your religious bias. Go away. BTW, Terrorists aren’t religious or good people and no one is “nurturing” them. You’re an idiot who wants everyone to think like you, and if they don’t, they’re automatically hateful and racist. Grow up!
