  • Telecharger Watch Dogs: Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone! View Post
  • betting sites with free bets: Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks View Post
  • MsPeppa: Where is the BPP when you need them. I believe that the BPP, should be at whatever trial there is just in case there is an acquittal. And if there is, someone needs to pay. We must not allow this to go un-punished. Not this one yall. I really mean it. If we allow this to go un-punished, all bets are off. This is a case of the most egregious abuse of police power. If you can see a man, not doing anything to threaten police. If you can see police choking a man to death, when there is not even evidence for an arrest. If you can see police pretending that a man is alive, when he is clearly on the ground un-responsive. If all of that is apparent and the police still gets off Scott free, with no jail time and not losing their job, then Black people might as well lock themselves in their homes and only leave out to go to work. And when you go to work, you better not speak to anyone, don’t look at anyone, don’t argue, don’t do anything except act like what they want you to act like. A Slave from the 1800s. Where is the TRUE Black Panther Party View Post
  • Cllaudia: Hard to exhibit distress when you are already dead. May the sins of all these people who perpetrated this crime of murder, be visited upon your children View Post
  • Maga: China exports a lot of bad products undoubtedly. But please don't be distracted by finger-pointing at other countries. All of this "fast food" is a fast track to illness and aimed at poor people, a disproportionate amount of whom are African Americans. As the author says, "Now, they promise, all the steaming trash they serve you will be totally fresh." Don't allow yourselves to be exploited. The U.S. government doesn't care if you or your children die of poisoning, diabetes or a heart attack because if you're not part of the prison slavery system or doing some job that no one else wants to do, they have little use for you. Stand up for yourself and your family. 500 years of exploitation is enough! View Post
