Russia was calm. Yes. Then N.A.T.O keep pushing for war with their lies. Then the Bear bite back hard.

A - Italy has a very low birthrate B - we can always bring in migrants. A - Oh, no. The Italian government is right wing. I guess right wing means that you understand that one group of people (and their culture) cannot be strengthed by the addition of another group and their completely different culture.

We are not the only creatures that need water. Why do humans are so solipsistic? We need to be discussing our overpopulation and not one environmental conference has ever addressed this reality. in fact, governments encourage population growth to increase their tax base.

Interesting podcast. I like to listen to stories related to lawyers. I guess I was very lucky that I found a good lawyer, and now I turn to him with any questions. Btw, he recommended me a great resource where I can find any documents that I need, for example, no warranty bill of sale template. Sometimes it's easier to take a ready-made template than to wait for a response from a lawyer.
