  1. Is it really? Hmm I wonder why they starting to make this new and fancy camps, Australia did it, the UK doing it, the US, we seem to follow suit in other people’s poop. People wake the damn up don’t you see it, those aren’t for in mates those are for people who refuse their juice. Should we be worried, no but concerned about the government mentalistic ideas, The Rapture is inniment war is about to break out, people I plead every day to hear some people still so guillble to these agendas. If you are not on Yahshua side then you must be on the devil’s side. Say no more but prepare. Time to get saved. Shalom.

  2. Will the white man be moved from Coolidge? It took them long enough to do what they want a pat on the back for.

    Election is really around the corner, all of a sudden they finding money to do alot of things, to fool the gullible.

  3. So strange that when nothing was done to the prison the comments and criticism were overwhelming. Now that they learn that something has been happening very quietly, they are absent and have nothing to say. But we know who they are and what their agenda is. Try to find anything bad to say about the government. Now they want to hammer on the water situation. No matter recognizing that, this government has increased water production at least two hundred percent since 2014. But a new issue has arisen, which is the replacement of the old pipes. And that program is in progress. When that is completed, I wonder what else they will come up with.
