    Elections have business consequences

    I’m not putting anyone on the spot by name, you know what I mean? Except the guy that typed a racist comment. I’m just trying to make my point, that Rob singled me out for whatever reason and restricted my reply, he said is because I’m trolling, I haven’t said anything different than...
