Good Luck

The rich of the world are getting richer,and the rest of us are getting poorer.

The world is dying, wear a new colour,-chameleons are green.

Vote for Obama, he will change everything ,with his new found friend Hillary of course.

Thank goodness for Football, pity it’s over it took our minds off things for a while,and at least we can be pleased that there the best team one.
