    The only village on the EAST that has nothing good to offer other than POLITICS is La Plaine. La Plaine is a Politically divided community by the arrogance and ignorance of a few who should know better. Those that don’t and can’t accept defeat.

      Dear KID ON THE BLOCK,
      If your Palrep was a true borne again child of GOD as he claim to be there is no way he would be in that cabal
      Those that don’t and can’t accept defeat, WAS NEVER DEFEATED as u all are claiming, so go and ask your Plarep to please \, please speak the truth to U and stop keeping U in the DARK
      Proverbs chapter 15 sys and I quote “The eyes of the LORD are in every place beholding the evil and the good”
