1:18 pm
targeted are unaware those politicians invited by president or at least had an inkling for a long time many didn't talk about the hostility they faced and they often weren't taken seriously when they did. above all else we need an awareness throughout society the wii's are not just attacks on individuals but that the roots of democracy are under attack. germany's head of state may be focused on the issue but his position is largely symbolic ultimately only the government can take action. and now if the tech where 2 of the biggest names have published their. results for the quarter and to quarterly profits at google spare and company as for bet triple to just under $10000000000.00 the figures beach most analysts expect ations and with the result
