  2. Now THAT’S no way to start THIS month, right? Who out there is surprised? Thanks joe. Unity. Safety. Endless masking.

    1. You do realize Joe had nothing to do with this right? You’re always thanking him for something. But by doing this you’re making yourself look really stupid.

  3. I heard that he was murdered for his shoes. Reports say that he was found barefoot. It gets really stupid to kill someone over a pair of shoes if that was the case. Why would someone kill you for your kicks? Unbelievable.

  4. The behavior of an animal. Looks like this is another one that just doesn’t matter. Thanks joe. Unity. Safety. Empty shelves. Gas prices. The economy. Nice work sir.

      1. Slo’ Joe has nothing to do with anything, other than ruining the Country!
        And yeah Leona R.D. Town, get off Baynet, only people with opinions that are agreeable with Socialism are allowed.

    1. Dude just shut up already. I don’t think the price of gas or food was the motive. I’m going to go out on a limb and say it was a prior altercation or maybe it was the shoes.
