    Your WW III is feminine and weak and emotional.

    My WW III is manly and strong.

    It’s not at all emotional. Disregard any suggestion otherwise. It has nothing to do with the societal rejection I experienced when I tried to bum rush the Manhattan show. My father loved me. He believed in me and totally trusted me to take over his business and keep it out if bankruptcy.

    I was born in America, not Hawaii.

    ‘God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un,’ evangelical adviser says
    “When it comes to how we should deal with evildoers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”

    Personally I never trust anyone that claims to know what god is thinking.
    But that’s just me.
