Hillary's playing takeaway

I am sick and tired of Obama wagging his finger at the American people and saying, "That's not who we are." If you want four more years of this fundamental transformation of America that Obama has done for this great country, then vote for Hillary Clinton. The fundamental transformation includes taking tax dollars away from American citizens to spend on illegal immigrants coming into our country, refugees coming into our country and knowing full well that ISIS said they would infiltrate the refugee population. This is absurd, people! Wake up. Our country is being destroyed by these socialists. This is social anarchy. Refugees and immigrants are getting benefits that are due to American people. They are getting free housing, Medicare, Social Security, Welfare, food stamps, Obamacare, stipends to live on. It's just unbelievable the level this country has sunk to. Four more years of this nonsense will be the deterioration of this country. It will be the downfall of America. Four more years of this fundamental transformation into socialism. Nothing is free, people. It's paid on the backs of the working taxpayers who get up everyday and bust their butts going to work, trying to support their families. They can't support their families because all of their taxes are taken to support illegals and refugees. If you don't see this, wake up.

Not a smooth operator

I do not know where AT&T gets people to work for them. For one thing, you get ahold of that stupid machine and all they want to know is do you want to pay your bill. You try to explain to them what you want and they don't understand you. You can repeat it three times and ask for a person. You get a person, and they can barely speak English or they mumble and you can barely hear them. They go by the phone number you are calling from and then they can't help you for the number you're calling about because it's not the number you're calling from. It's all messed up. Why can't they get Americans that speak English and can understand other people?
