Assunto:  Every (single) one of them/those/these...
 
Mensagem: 

The use of "single" just adds emphasis to the statement.  The expression is colloquial, not formal.

 

Other examples could include:

 

every damn one of them

every darn one of them

every dang one of them

every mother's son of them

every cotton picking one of them

every lousy one of them
