Too bad the fbLie doesn't put same effort into those who've used pyrotechnics, blasphemy and assault with dangerous weapons on others who seem to have discovered a revolving door at precincts. But we know why, the ones who are unfairly targeted are on the other side politically.

Let them go. They haven't done any more damage than the new administration is doing to our country.
