    I like your work. Close the loggers in Plumas and Lassen county California. Shut those fornicating, child abusing, alcoholic, deer poaching, hypocrites out of work. My dad is a ‘bastard’, and all of the above. His first name is William. He is to be accursed to the lower hell. Lose his dream even this day, as mine was shattered. May he learn to hat life even more than me. Even to his committing suicide. Satan take him.
    Keep doing the ‘good work’. Destroy him. Destroy the loggers in these counties.
