Carver sells out to emo

Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Don't hold your breaths guys, tha agreement was between Farinelli, Carver and I. With emotiva holding the reigns, I will guarantee that I don't ever see the I-Mag again... I came to that realization when I was told I had to leave it in Snahomish. IF and that's a large IF... IF the I-Mag was to come out, expect to pay between $3k & $5k.
