Can we talk about the delicious Jaye P. Morgan? She's going to be 90 on 12/3/2021

Unbelievable how time has flown! She was the it girl and everyone's sexual fantasy especially in the 1970's. Her pussy was being munched 24/7 back then! Yummy!

Let's post gorgeous photos and videos of her. Anyone have some stories on her?

They have been enemies of the US forever, and then all of a sudden, we started letting them come here.

Since then, they've spied, lied, connived, cheated, and scammed their way into American society. And of course the largest terrorist attack in US history.

The only reason I can think of, is because they're not white.

If they were any other group of people in this world, they would have been banned because of their disgusting-ness. It's white guilt liberals and cultural relativists that have allowed this.

Muslims are filth and trash. They don't belong here.

Yet watch any news show, and they getting into this country in record numbers.
