    "Retard" is a harsh word, I have a disabled child. You calling people a "Retard" shows you intellengce level to be so low that you can not even comprehend simple questioning. When you call someone a "Retard", you are placing my child in a group of labels! Next time think a little about this being an open website for all people to read and reply. Also improve your langauge skills a little bit more, people skills might also be in order. Have a Blessed Day!
