Ive got an acquaintance who has chosen not to work for a living, and instead live off the government. She also chose to eat herself to an unhealthy state, so because of this, her Medicaid paid doctor advised her to have a bariatric procedure.

Who is Ellie light?...

Unless you've been under a rock all weekend....you know that the internet once again illustrates why the dinosaur media is dying...and why the liberals want to prop up a state media in it's place....
