When Metal leaves, the company will be the worse for it and, hopefully, they'll blame the race card dealing victim-black.

Re: Why is MDA Bullying Kroger?

Re: kids hate the Moochelle lunches

I never heard of so many parents SO concerned that their little spoiled brats don't get to eat what they want at school, when they wouldn't let them get away with that at home.
