Why do I even bother going on facebook any more.

I’m a disability pensioner and I march. I don’t have much & can’t afford to have the little I do have taken away. If you stay silent the bastards will take it as consent.

Seriously, imagine if these racists found out that Mexican Coke is so much better than American Coke. Made with real sugar FTW.
