She's given up on Republicans. They're just too darn fat
and sloppy. It's a life style choice that's the norm in
conservatism. Bacon fat and grits. A way of life in
hillbilly America.

It's been the year of the PIG ever since she's been spewing propaganda at our children from the White House.

Trump was right! Chinese buying off American companies that will keep Americans from obtaining any jobs there because great numbers of their own will be brought in for employment to work those companies.

I think there are laws preventing American companies from buying Chinese ones.

We should reciprocate.

And yet, it is all the Democrat cities and states that are facing bankruptcy.

Bacon fat, grits and solvency vs Kale, tofu and bankruptcy....

Would you buy a Smithfield Ham? There are too many others that are just as good owned by Americans.

We're heading for WW III and letting China buy huge companies? the better for their spying technology!! more and more they are implanting themselves so easily in our country.

Your fat little whiny children are now having heart attacks at age 10.

Eat up! Be sure to put gravy on everything and avoid them-there vegetables. Let's speed up the process so educated, HEALTHY Americans can take their country back from you out of control fatties.

Obesity is a choice. You made your king size bed now lay in it, moo-cow.

Most states in the south are red states and red states in general are always #1 in obesity,#1 in HS drop out rates,#1 in divorce,#1 in drug, alcohol, gambling and porn addiction.

The so-called "republican party of Xtians" turned out to be the party of gluttony, sloth, sexual deviancy, adultery, racism, hate, stupidity and now, obesity.

Eat up! The less there are of you, the better the country will be.

I wonder how China will inject lead into our meat products just like they have put it in our childrens toys, our jewelry, bullets and steel and don't forget the building materials China sent us for years that is now making families sick because their homes were built with it.

China.....keep it up. Did you learn nothing from Japan's history with us?

800,000 people died in China last year from lung disease.

Keep building those coal-fired plants China.
You are your own worst enemy.

It's not a choice with Michelle Antoinette.

Let them eat healthcare.
