Every day Tensions are getting higher and higher. People are not laughing any more you see less and less smiles out and about. Biden stated he would be a great unifier of USA. He and admin have driven the wedge of division deeper/deeper. His economic policy of INFLATION has picked the Everday Joe's pockets of money. Right in Yankton County where average wage is $36,000 yr. He has taken money from your pocket 7% inflation means he picked $2520 right out of your pocket! But inflation ate up Much more than that. All the stress his admin is piling on folks. DEMOCRATS=DEATH folks.
So this shooting death is Biden's fault. Got it.
It was him or Covid.
