Think fast: What would you take?
Funny.......I was thinking the same in reverse.  Agree or I disparage you. Seems to be everywhere. Germans will be happy to know the torch has been passed.

minorlIs it possible, that many truths can coexist? That ones truths are based on ones experiences, and those might be different than yours, leading to a different view of the world? I believe that  is what you are attempting to say, and yet it ru...

Interesting that all sides have a version of the boogie man.........a word of advice even though many of you are too enlightened to be given any........”THEY” is a dangerous word used by dangerous people who want to denigrate large swaths of a pop...
