Re: Christchurch

For those who couldn't see the photo of New Zealand's PM in my post above, here it is. She joined the mourners, and to me her grief is open for all see. It reminds me of Obama at the service for Pastor Pinckney. NZ is fortunate to have her during this horrible time. D10WmaeX4AAc-nK.jpeg If this imag...

The White Nationalist/Supremacist movement is an international terrorism network, IMHO. They encourage each other, read the same books and sc...
