Guess I’m a ‘Hater’

Getting tired of ‘adults’ supporting these idiot kids protesting guns. So what if they are ‘passionate?’ What’s that got to do with policy?

OBOR for the Americas

With the 100% probability that OBOR will raise living standards across Eurasia, 10 suggestions:

Add airports where it makes sense. Add an electrical grid and Venezuela can start selling their oil again to benefit the region by burning it into electricity, increasing manufactures.
