    What the hell is going on with these people driving the wrong way on the roads? Prior to a couple of years ago, I don’t recall this taking place. Did something happen to the way signs are posted? If its a problem with the road signs, they need fixing.

    So when are we going to be allowed to exterminate, execute these murderous drunken sc\/ms? How many more humans must be killed before these vermins are eradicated?

    Oh wait, ALL politicians are lying drunkards – guess we’ll never get the law passed.
