If any of you anonymous don’t like the Bible Belt,
Try Hollywood or upper east side New York, you could fit in with that trash real well.

Oh hell Harvey. All we have to do to change the demographics of Southwest Missouri is to import massive numbers of minorities. One has to wonder why a white boy like you has to leave Louisiana where he fits into the Trailer Trash mode so well.
