  1. Society today is finished literally and I hate to see what is going to happen when the world’s economy collapses. The Islamic people are taking over Europe and they mentioned that literally. Greece is throwing out the migrants. Society today is collapsing – young people are lost completely and finished. No morals and don’t believe in God and that is the result.

  2. I just got off from listening to actress Patty Duke about Bipolar and she mentioned about the shootings going on in the US and said that many of these people are mentally ill and on drugs. That is exactly what is happening in Ottawa these days. Something is mighty wrong with these people and parents don’t want to come forward about mental illness don’t want it exposed.
