Re: Terroristan - May 1, 2019

Is there a larger game plan of Paki Army by putting everyone from ten Percenti, his sister, NS, his son to his brother and key party members behind bars and setting them up as a non-participant actor in politics.

Re: Terroristan - May 1, 2019

Paki budget is like a wishlist for Santa. The numbers will never be met. The kind of taxes proposed will break the back of those willing or being forced to pay it. Look for a middle class uprising (despite them not having much of a middle class). With the increases in input costs and tight taxation...
