Garamendi's deception continues. Do a Google search for images of Little John and see how inaccurate the photo accompanying this story is. I think it's from his high school junior prom.

WOW...PRAISES Obama... I thought we praised the Lord.

Garamendi and everyone he praises need to take a very long vacation...Like forever.

Thank you, Julia from Alamo
