  1. once again U nothing but garbage, usless robbers… sickening.. while we pay pay pay for the POS …

  3. Well told Paul Revere!

  4. I have a money-making idea for the Friends of AJ organization.

    A piñata in the shape of Acosta filled with goodies.

  5. I never bought that whole Aj story to start with. Now it seems there is an agenda as to why they brought it to us in the first place. Something is truly rotten in the state of Illinois.

  7. AlabamaShake, is just a paid political consultant who happens to be angry, because the careers a of lot of Democrats could be over!

  8. Cindy, Alabama is no idiot.

    He’s diabolical.



  9. You people allow creeps like Acosta to creep around and commit all manner of outrages.

    That wouldn’t happen in a healthy place.
