This is so shocking. It's a shame such an important and sensitive issue is not more widely discussed, this needs a lot of attenzion and pressure to make policy changes to protect children.

Sooo... heterosexual kiss completely blown out of proportion for sexual politics sake... not trying to "calm" things at all by me saying this... instead let sexual politics go so much further that normal heterosexual males could completely be sick of modern woman whom are everywhere except raising kids at home... let things get soo bad that the ONLY place men can have some peace abd quiet is in their home where they do not allow woman to invade it ... woman are everywhere in their face at work, shopping, offices, hospitals, sports, driving cars, university, the only place to have any peace from woman will be at home, which means no marriage, no kids, this is nearly the last generation... no future... no family...

I'm intrigued by the title "The Journal." It immediately brings to mind a sense of mystery and introspection. Journals can hold the most personal thoughts and experiences of an individual, almost like a hidden world that's waiting to be explored. I wonder if the story within this journal is one of self-discovery, a record of adventures, or perhaps a collection of fictional tales. The possibilities are endless, and I can't wait to dive into the content. http://www.travelful.net/location/5211040/usa/deli-paper-pros Whether it's a real journal or a work of fiction centered around one, journals have a unique way of capturing emotions and memories. Looking forward to finding out more! https://www.brownbook.net/business/51919696/prime-butcher-wrap/

At some point, the cover-up will exceed the crime. That's what happened to Nixon.

like the reporting in most of your subjects. I think you totally missed the underlying causes of the backlash here.
