      Didn't your mother ever teach you anything "If you don't have anything nice to say don't say it ?" I see from the few comments that I've read that you and many others like you, lack compassion. If that's your idea of a joke, it may be funny to you but not as funny to others. Hate and or is niether a Christian nor a conservative value. Comments like this and others just show your mental capacity. If you want people to think your smarter then them try posting somithing that someone might learn from.

      On Facebook there were several reports that a deer ran out in the road and caused the accident. Now this report says that the deer was not relevant to the accident.
