    Only in America! Would you rather be a Barber Shop owner arrested for cutting hair or, be a protester braking windows and looting and NOT be arrested? OR, Be a Father playing ball with his son in a park and being arrested for it OR, be a protester that burns a Police car on the street and NOT be arrested? Liberals are turning our country upside down! The words of Ronald Reagan “I did not leave the Demorat party, the Demorat party left me!”

    Awesome photo! I can only imagine the tattoos those Bulldogs have inspired! If someone decides to make a movie of our Marine Corps legend, I’d suggest Robert Deniro! Semper Fi!
