There Is No Stronger Bond. There Is No Greater Reason.
08/16/16 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.

It is a clear indication that the national media, certain vote pandering politicians, and delusional activist groups, such as black lives matter, exist to promote an agenda far different than what their words or actions hope to portray.
