2. Lol @ the racist NPC for using regressive lefty opinionated blogs as a source.

You support this type of outcome with your support of the DemocRats NPC. What do you think happens with the policies pushed like Sanders and Casio Cortez want? They get wealthy and you end up eating garbage.

Lol @ the NPC for not understanding it's idiot ideology.
