@ Evoke Agents, Thanks for your support. World leaders must know that we are diligently watching.

I have just voted it was very straightforward I just followed your Davros link and then scrolls through the questions, yours is about 10 down. It only had a handful of votes but soon hopefully there will be lots more.
Best wishes

@ Patricio, Thanks for your insight on my choice of words. The truth is though, when you dig in a deeper level into the political climate and civil wars in Ethiopia, you may come to realize that the Ethiopan government (currently led by the RUTHLESS Meles Zenawi) is in fact an Empire imposing its will on its powerless citizens whether they are Amhara, Tigray, or Oromo. The politics in this part of the world are too compiclated to discuss here, but should not be omitted for the future analysis of the issues. For that reason, I used Imperialist in the video title, and have also referred to the "colonial arrangement" INSIDE the video itself.

Thanks for the opportunity to discuss the semantics, however.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
