They pumped old Uncle Joe full of adderall the other day, and stuffed him in front of the tele-prompter which told him to tell us that we need to pay our fair share, enough is enough. He used the same tone of voice he summoned to tell us he was out of patience with our … Continue reading Pay Your Fair Share!
