  1. SUCCESS is not how much you make but the DIFFERENCE you make in people’s lives, its so nice to see how many positive things being done, I Wish the opposition take a good look and learn from its mistakes. This president has a FIRST LADY who is photo perfect,but sad to say the idol of the other side is too lawless and shameless so he prefers the be among the BOYS,,lol

  2. FORGIVE THEM LORD they know not what they say,this RACIST cockroach is a security guard at FH ,all day the only news he is allowed to blog on is to cast a negative shadow on PROGRESS, Take a look at the news and see who going to JAIL, everyday is one of your sisters and brothers,,,,you people are so full of GREED that you even taking away the JAIL from the nation you HATE, you filling NY jails,DRUGS,MURDER,RAPE,FRAUD, and ever crime you can think of.I realized long you can’t help yourself, poor thing.

  3. All talks and as they done talking they done with that. The Buxton youths will continue doing what they do best and that is to look up to their idols whom are the most deadly criminals. Only certain communities the president wife will go and talk to get some photos of hers in the media. Wjhen will she go into the Indian communities?
