Comment on: âMore probable than notâ Patriots deflated balls, report says
Posted 05/06/2015 02:23:09 EDT

@TheVastConspirator, other companies are making it. Also, it seems that you don't know how generic drugs work. It's not like once a patent expires other drug manufacturers can just copy the recipe and more »

Not even 24 hours after the attack and Republicans were already blaming the victims. What a vile bunch.
