Who paid for it all?

We should be #1, if you drive through the hood or the mall you would see every car driven by a boon has a handicap sticker in it. There’s more electric wheelchairs in the hood with boons driving them everywhere. Hell, every bus has air shocks so it can drop down so they can get on and go to the liquor store, I’m mean food stamp office or welfare office. The city has spent tens of millions of dollars on sidewalk curb cuts for wheelchair access alone.
