Exactly! The only time that is running out, is the time before they are exposed as frauds.
Must be an intern who will land a nice PR job in her dad’s agency.
ticking time bomb is the US debt/governemtn spending and collapse of US dollar
The NAZIs insisted that the Jews were responsible for all of Germany’s problems.
The Liberals insist that human emissions of carbon dioxide cause global warming.
