Don’t waste your money on those toiletries, they won’t be used.
When I was in Afghanistan, we had churches collect coats for us to pass out to the children in the villages as a way to help relations with the locals. We would pass out 20-30 coats or jackets at a time. The next time we would pass through, usually in the same week, we wouldn’t see a single coat or jacket.

Come on fellow Fort Wayne conservatives, let’s give this “no wall” “no ban” a chance. We can certainly put up with the probability that a few terrorists will get in and blow up a few things killing some people. Isn’t it worth it? We can also put up with people illegally entering the country even though it’s against the law. I mean, it’s not really a law if it involves people is it? After all, America is not for Americans. It’s for everyone but them. Oh, and this is not as sarcastic as I should be about these issues.
