    Revere

    parks cars.

    wears sheets

    hates American values.

    Tea Nothing.

    Revere, it was Jefferson who used the term in a letter more than two centuries ago.

    You are right there with Jack Fate and bigrebnc as the forum liars.

    making stuff up again?

    thomas jefferson talked about the wall between church and state.

    seriously... do you do this intentionally?

    i'm starting to think you're someone's puppet because you're just too weird for words.

    oh right... facts don't matter. :cuckoo:
