    No, I do not.
    This is just another ploy to get their greedy hands on a greater share of the kitty and otherwise enrich and advantage only the political elite.
    No, I do not.
    Put your nose up your anus. You are part of a cosmic plot to further inter-stellar relations to dominate plane earth and its web of life. To you the corpse-oration low evil (=anti-live) we bid your farewell and total de-vibration. You have been informed countless times that you would be upgraded if you changed your attitude towards SOURCE. You have by your own initiative passed the point of no return. We can no longer prevent you from self-destruction.
    Yes, I do.
    If one has an offense for drinking and driving and seeks help and changes their life to give up alcohol, they should not have a 10 year criminal record, as they were sick. Alcoholism is a disease. You can't give a diseased person a criminal record! ?
    Yes, I do.
    Can the judicial system stop giving bail to people who are accessed on rape and murder even the rights they have at correctional services be limited and punitive not that they have more right than us nooo
    No, I do not.
    The bill must allow people who have worked so hard to help inves their money through the other means profitable rather than forcining them to go to old mutual who have lost so much money of the poor hard earned money. If they can’t guarantee growth why should they manage our money. We shuould st least be forced to fix our money and enjoy the interest in that way your capital is guaranteed
