“Forecast” … A Poem written by Big Virge 21/02/2020

Yes Yes People, well, this piece is essentially, the first one where I mention the Corona Virus, so, is really the prequel to my current, ” Corona Series “, which made a few predictions about how things were looking like they were likely to go, in my opinion …..

So now, a couple of months on, it’s an interesting piece in terms of it’s accuracies, regarding the effects of this Corona Virus, and more ….

So this poem was my initial ….

…. ” FORECAST ” ….

So The Forecast Today …
I’m AFRAID … Is For Reigns …

The Reign of … New Tech ….
And Reigns of IGNORANCE … !!!

The Reign of Race Hate In Political Games …
That Reigns Like How Rain DAMPENS Sunny Days … !!!

What Reigns Nowadays Is A Lot of Brain DRAIN … !!!

And Now Sexual Strains …
of … SO MANY Names …!!!

That’s It’s Hard To Keep Up …
With Reigns That Now Run …
MORE Than Governments … !!!

Today’s Reigns Maintain …
Like … TYRANNICAL Days … !!!

Be Careful What You Say …
Is A Reign That Pulls Reins …
On People Like … Strays ……………………….

Because of The Cats Now Reigning Like GATS …
Shooting Talk Down That They Want To DROWN … !!!

By Using Their Pounds And Dollars To DOWN …
Investment That Strengthens On YES FOREIGN Grounds … !!!

A Reign That Now Hounds …
Poor Countries Where Money’s …
NOT EASILY … Found … !!!!!

So Now What Surrounds …
Are Reigns That COMPOUND …
Inflation In Nations Now Facing Starvation …

Because of Plantations …
Where Reigns Have Been Stationed For Centuries Now … !!!

From Slaves To Mass Graves Where Colonial Reigns …
Have Proven To Play In TRULY SHAMEFUL Ways … !!!

NO SHAME Or DISGRACE Just Maintenance of HATE …
And RIDICULOUS Claims That Reign Over Lands …
of INDIGENOUS Clans Whose Forefathers Claims …

Are Still Fought For TODAY … !?!
From African Lands To The … US of A …

“Hey I Say Virge I Say, Don’t Forget The UK !”

Where Sovereignty Games …
Now Employ BREXIT’ Plays … !!!

Forget THEM … NO WAY …!!!

Because of Their Claims …
That We Blacks Have No Brains ..
And Should Just Entertain …
In Ways That They Say …

Or Be Used Like We’re SCUM …
Like … Dumb Immigrants … !!!!!!!!

Who Thought That The Windrush …
Meant They Were Welcome …
… Oh Yes In England … !!!

Mistake Son … Uh Uh …

Their Reign TOLERATES …
Which … ISN’T The Same … !!!

HOSTILITY Reigns …
Like That Woman Named MAY …

Whose Party Maintains …
Supremacist Reigns …
Through Names Like … BJ … !!!!

Yup WRONG’Uns Like … JOHNSON … !!!
So Yes They’re A Virus Like Corona Strains … !!!
That Could Spread So Fast That Humans Won’t Last …

Some Cards Have Been Marked …
That … May NOT Lead To Laughs …. !!!

We’re On A Dark Road Where Reigns Of Cold Souls …
Are Likely To Lead Us … Into Some DEEP Holes … !!!!!

And So There Ya Go As The Story Unfolds …
No One Really Knows What The Future May Hold …

These Words Just Impart …

Today’s …

Corona Series Pt. XI “It Can Still Bring Good Things !” … A Poem written by Big Virge 6/4/2020

I Really Think …
That What’s Happening Can Bring Good Things …

Like MORE Thinking And LESS HATING … !!!
Because In These Days Why Would You Embrace …
Ideas of Race Hate When You Are Forced To …

………………….. “ISOLATE” ………………. !!!

What Kind of Race War Can You Wage … INDOORS … ?!?
Although I’m Sure Some Are Trying Via Internet Science … !!!
To Incite Violence Like … Supremacist Tyrants … !!!

But I Agree With Pryor …

When It’s Freezing Outside You Tend To Find …
That Race Hatred Is Put Aside …
Even By … The Most HATEFUL Types … !!!

What I’m Saying Is Now …
That Things Have Turned Sour …

We Need To Uplift From PETTY Things …
It’s A Time To … UPLIFT Minds …
Through The Things We Choose To Write …
And To Recognise What’s IMPORTANT In Life … !!!

Because Material Greed …
CAN’T Fight A Disease Like This Corona Breed … !!!

It’s A Time For Education …
That DOES NOT Deal …
In DIVI – DING Populations … !!!

Do You Get What I’m Saying … ?!?

We Need MORE Consideration …
And … LESS of This Hating … !!!

Because It’s Formation …
Has Been Causing Vibrations …
Now KILLING Young Generations … !!!

We Need MORE Meditation …
For Them To Start Raising …
Themselves From Irritation …

So That They Can Start Relating …
… About COLLABORATING … !!!

That Works Towards UNIFICATION ….. !!!!!
Instead of Provocations …
That’s Leading Them To Stations …
Where Corrupt Police Are Waiting … !!!!!

With All This Isolation …
It’s A Time For Conversations …
That Deal In … ELEVATION …
of Where Their Thoughts Are Stationed … !!!

Its A Time For … Deliberations ………………
That REDUCE … Discrimination … !!!!

There’s So Much More That This Can Bring …
Than Loss of Life And People Mourning … !!!

That’s Right … THIS Corona Thing … !!!!!
Because How We Have Been Living …
Now CLEARLY Needs … “ RETHINKING “ …
It’s A Time For … MORE Forgiving … !!!

And A Time For THOUGHT NOT Drinking … !!!

Because THAT May Be Linking …
Certain Heads To Sinking …
In A Time Where Social Living …
Is Now Driven By Distance … !?!?!

It’s A Time For Folks To LISTEN …. !!!
Instead of Being … DISMISSIVE … !!!!!

It’s A Time For POSITIVE Missions … !!!
Where Our Human Condition …
Starts Dealing In Uplifting …
Instead of Pointless Dissing …

It’s A Time For Politicians …
To STOP All Their Restricting … !!!
Through Wars That Breed Conditions …
Like The One This Thing Is Bringing …

A Virus Now In Vision …
That’s Dealing In NUFF’ Killing … !!!

My Statements Have A Mission …
To Stop This … Politicking … !!!
And Talk Filled With Derision …
Because Such Talk Keeps Bringing …
An Ignorance That’s Stinging … !!!

It’s Time For Less Racism …
From People In Positions …
Who Shouldn’t Be So Smitten …
With Things Breeding Division …

Because Coronas Brought …
A Lot of Things To The FORE …

Economic Wars …
And Technology Like This 5G … !!!
That’s Leading To Conspiracies …
Based On ….. ” Theory ” ……

That Some Are Linking To What’s Deemed …
As A Major Part of This Corona Disease … ?!?
Well Quite Frankly … We Need LESS of These … !!!

Unless They Deal In … What Is REAL … !!!
Cos’ It’s A Time Believe Me For LESS Fallacies … !!!

And FINALLY … It’s A Time That CAN BREED … !!!
More Love For Each Other And YES … UNITY … !!!

Because Even Though We Live …
Through A Time Like This …
When This Virus Exists ….

“It Can Still Bring Good Things !” ……

“Energy” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so the energies surrounding this Corona Virus health issue, are indeed proving to be varied, and extreme, depending on where you are in the world !

Barbados has people masking up, so the fakers energy is indeed, being even better concealed than ever before !

As you go across the waters, the energies of protest are rising, as people seem to have had enough of being stuck at home, while others seem, quite happy to do so !!!

I guess, depending on your financial situation, home energies will differ, from household to household, which is not to say that having money, means a happy home for couples and families in isolation, because that’s clearly not the case according to figures on domestic issues, from physical abuses to relationships failing, because a great many relationships actually work, due to the fact that, prior to this situation, a lot of couples, and or marriages, didn’t avail the time in each other’s company, that these lockdowns have now done !

Of course the issues surrounding money, are also creating energies of varying levels.

Generosity and kindness on the one side, while greed and insensitivity, follow right behind !

As I have already expressed, greedy energies are not to be dismissed folks, payment holidays and suspensions are NOT the same as grants, that apparently, don’t have to be paid back ….

Well, the energy of authenticity and truth, regarding these issues, may well affect poorer crews, in more adverse ways than they might like !

Much like the corrupted energies of law enforcement, who seem in certain cases, to be taking the energy of power tripping, a lil’ too far !!!

So, if certain people thought that they were above police abuse, like say journalists, well they might want to think again, as it seems that even they, if they are deemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, are being told that they are endangering, well, in one case in the UK, deemed to be killing people, by their mere presence in certain policing matters !!!

Martial Law anyone … ???

Well, I have a few words on this subject, as do politicians on this global issue. However, as ever, certain leaders are proving themselves to have energies that aren’t necessary working in favour of, firstly, the medical teams working on stopping the spread of this disease, or the masses who are for the most part, being kept in the dark about developments, which doesn’t seem to quite be, how such information is being spread to their corporate friends, and more importantly, their investments !!!

Finally the rise of technological energies, is truly an amazing thing to see … !?!

From the elderly in care homes, to empty art galleries, there is a shift in energy, from dealing with human beings, to dealing with robots and artificial intelligence, to avail a virtual experience of leaving the house, or for some degree of human interaction ……

I’ll leave this post on that note, because as wondrous as all these technological wonders are becoming, there is a little something that is being diminished rapidly….

The basic use of our energy for human interaction….

So this weeks piece covers the theme of …..

“What’s In Store ?“ … A Poem written By Big Virge 25/3/2020

A suitable question for these times ….
Pt. 5 of My Corona Series of Poems …..

So … What’s In Store … ?!?

Well … A Lot of Store Wars …
And That’s For … SURE … !!!!!

A Lot of EMPTY Shelves …
And Now Aisles As Well … !!!

A Load of PANIC Buying … !!!
From People Who Are Lying …
To They God Damned Selves …
About … What They Need …
To Preserve Their Health … ?!?

As If … Having Wealth …
Will Save Them From Hell …

The One In Which …
They’re Now Forced To Dwell …

That’s Right Their Own Homes …
In … AFFLUENT Zones … !!!!!

What’s In Store For Us All May Not Serve Well … !?!

Because Even The Poor …
Are Now Warring Like Soldiers On Foreign Shores … !?!
OVER … HAND SANITISERS And A Whole Lot More … !!?!!

Like Toilet Roll And Bars of Soap … ?!?

While The Fools Will Choose …
To Shop For The Tools That Soldiers Use … ?!?

Guns And Stuff …
Like Americans Who Believe In Trump … !?!

Now CERTAIN Employees …
Who Are Deemed To Be Key …
To Our Medical Teams …
Will Get To See Shops Open Early …
So They Can Shop Quickly To Get What They Need …

But Now LENGTHY Queues …
Will Now Be Used …
So That Shops Can View …
Shoppers … TWO By TWO …
Who Want To Buy Food … !!!

So It Seems That NOAH …
Is Now The CONTROLLER … !?!

For Tomorrow’s Shoppers …
Okay … That’s NONSENSE … !?!

WITHOUT His ARK …
Is He Having A Laugh … !!!

Cos’ … What’s In Store …
Is Gonna Cause PROBLEMS … !!!

No Time For Price DROPPING … !!!

Just … Store Wars That Ensure That Prices Will SOAR … !!!
When Food Supply Chains CAN’T Supply … ANYMORE … !!!!!!!!!!
Because of Restrictions On Shores And Ports …

It May Get INSANE … ?
WAIT … What Am I Saying … ?!?

… It ALREADY IS … !!!

Because Martial Law Is Now Being Enforced …
To Ensure That The Streets Are Now Kept Clean …
of Human Breeds … Now Spreading Disease … !!!!!!!

Things Are Now CRAZY As Well As Being FUNNY … ?!?

“Pay By Card Please, Cos’ We Won’t Touch Your Money !”

So …..
It’s A Cashless World That Will … Unfurl ……………..

Which Is Part of The Plot That’s Bound To Shock …
Markets … That Are Filled With Stocks …
UNLIKE The Ones … In Supermarket Shops … !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Hate To Bore But What’s Really The Score …
Because … No One Seems To Know Now …

“Money” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, the jokes on us it seems, as Ministers and Royalty are, and have been Corona Virus Carriers, and we’re mostly on lockdown globally now !!!

Well, as has been said numerous times, when humanity faces huge issues, that have a mass effect on societies, like WAR, for example.

The best thing to do is ….

FOLLOW THE MONEY !!!

Yes, health should be the priority for all of us now, (or shouldn’t that have, ALWAYS been ?!?), however, this world revolves around money, and i’d imagine this virus, won’t stop that being the case, no matter how many survive or die !!!

So, from footballers to the self employed, to those losing jobs who have bills to pay, that are not being waived, people are complaining, and governments are on bailout protocols, all over the world, or, are they !?!

As a friend said to me, why aren’t significant bills like rent, mortgages and loans being WAIVED, rather than being SUSPENDED ?!?

If this is a pandemic, who are they expecting to collect these mounting debts from then, huh, the dead !?!

Also, where is all this money and generosity coming from ?!?

Credit crunches and recessions, could clearly be sorted out quickly, with a lil’ government generosity, now couldn’t they right !?!

They seem, all of a sudden, to be able to do it now ???

So, why exactly are we all slaving for these fat cats to live large, when they could just print more, share it around, and not be so fast to want to collect tax, for essentially, NOTHING, in terms of these services, that we apparently get the best of, which are supposed to hinder, or more importantly, stop these things from happening, when they could simply share a little more, with those in need who have less…..

Merely stuff to think on folks, especially now that we’re seeing what they can do to keep people afloat, when they need to !!!!

I dunno folks, things are indeed concerning, however, don’t take your eyes of society’s prize.

CONTROL !!!!!

If we go cashless, which seems highly likely now, then the powers that be, have, TOTAL CONTROL of the lives of the survivors !!!

Vaccines become chargeable by digital money transactions, and become COMPULSORY, and so on, none of which sits comfortably with me folks!

Anyway, let’s look at this weeks money winners shall we ….

Seemingly, of all companies, cruise companies like, Royal Caribbean and Carnival, after suffering initial drops in value, rocketed back up with the US Stimulus announcement, as have oil companies like BP and Shell !!!

I mean CRUISE Companies, hows that working now huh ?!?

The Self-Employed seem to have forced governments to recognise their need for money in these times, especially as big companies seem to be the first to be seen as needing government help ???

Companies like say, Goldman Sachs, whose CEO, David Soloman, has received a 20 per cent pay raise, worth 2 Million Dollars, a bonus AND stock options, worth somewhere in the region of a further 25 Million Dollars !!!!

In times like THESE, REALLY … !?!

Like WOW, his future must be very secure, what does he and Goldman Sachs know, that the rest of us DON’T eh !!!

So, as we all wait to see how this situation plays out, here’s one final, interesting fact for the week, this week was the FIRST EVER, ALL ELECTRONIC, Trade Session …. !?!

Now take from that what you will, but with people now blatantly overpricing goods, and still demanding rent money and more, it’s not a time to be stuck without cash it seems ….

RATHER Than, to be stuck WITHOUT HEALTH CARE … !?!

Like WTF ….. ?!?

So, having said all this, money is still far too big an issue, in my opinion, for a time like this, if we are to believe what many now believe this to be, a very real, global pandemic !!!

Folks, all I will say is that it’s really NOT a time to be acting funny over this thing we call …

Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….

“The Trump Effect” …. written by big Virge 13/12/2015

Okay folks, so, in doing my catch up on things i’d written a while back, that I wanted to post at the time, but couldn’t …..

Here’s one that was inspired by what I saw in different parts of the world, at a time where terror acts were all over the news, and clearly, in most peoples’ minds ……

So, having spoken in my last post, about the madness that is the Presidential Candidacy Race, I have to follow that post with this, which was one written on my flight back from LA to Miami, having completed my trip to New Zealand, via Australia, Fiji, Honolulu, LA & Miami, pretty much, days after the Paris Bombings, and then travelling through the US, soon after San Bernardino, etcetera …..

So, this post is a reflection on, the attitudes, reaction and general vibe of people in the aftermath of Paris, and then of course, the effect that a certain Donald Trumps’ speeches seemed to be having on people ………..

So, here I am on my second, American Airlines flight in two days, well, three, if you include the time difference ….

FUCK …. do I hate travelling on American Airlines ….. !!!!!!

The stewards are mostly, old and decrepit looking, and really do seem to have their head so far up Donald Trumps’ ass, that, to me, unless you’re white and wearing a Klan Hood, their attitude is a F’ing disgrace …. !!!

Again, it obviously isn’t all of them, however, certain attitudes are far too prevalent, when it comes to reaction, and service.

Now, i’m NO Oprah lover like that, but, have to say that i’m down with the Oprah’ statement that suggests that, basically …..

“There still exists, a generation of old white people, who need to hurry up and die already !!!!!”

(If I have Mis-quoted her, then it’s not to be attributed to her of course, but you get the gist !)

…. and that’s ….

On … THE REAL … !!!!

Now, of all industries in the working world, judgement should surely be limited in a field such as that of international travel, but wow, is it prevalent !!!!!

As I tell people all the time, even, stupid black people !!!!!

The moment you do not fit the, Ben Carson, Conservative, black citizen, type model, a crown of a hairstyle like mine, quickly provides reactions from people, who seem to think that every one of us who rocks such styles, are either, stupid, or, deserving of some kind of second class treatment, or worse still, treatment that indicates a complete unwillingness to acknowledge our existence !

Now, when we black folks act up, all of a sudden, we’re being ignorant !!?!!

Well, as much as I like Trumps’ frankness, there is a level of ignorance, bigotry, as well as, double standards, that i’ve seen in him, that airline stewards ….

(Particularly, those who work for American Airlines)

…. seem to have already adopted … !!!!!

The fact that they’re cheap as fuck, and that their aircraft designs, work like cans for sardines, may well affect the attitude of people flying on them, however, having undertaken the job, the staff should be professional … !!!!!

In fact, they shouldn’t get to be stewards if there is even a smidgeon of ignorance in them ….. !!!

…. but there it is …..

The Trump Effect !!!!!

I sense that those who’ve been forced into playing the, Diplomatic Card, when it comes to dealing with …. Non-Whites, over the last few years, are feeling as though, Good Ol’ Donald, has made it acceptable for them to rear their, deep rooted ignorance, in how they deal with, as said, blacks in particular, like myself, who do not, and ….

WILL NOT, play the ….

” WHATEVER MASSA’ !!! “, vibe, just to get by !!!!

It ISN’T a pre-requisite of my existence, as a black male, to, do things, in a manner that DOESN’T suit me, to appease other races insecurities, especially when, the rules of the book are constantly, flouted, and broken, by white people !!!

…. from leaving shit, unattended on planes, so they can stow their carry on baggage, to, standing in aisles, when the seatbelt sign is on.

I dunno, having spoken to an elderly woman from Israel on the flight into Miami, who has lived in Miami, for over 30 years, who, upon hearing me say that I like Trumps, unbridled expression, dived in on some, essentially, Anti-Arab rhetoric, and, Pro UK & France talk, which was the trap set, by my calm, English Tones, after an initial misunderstanding with her over seating ….

It has become clear to me, from the looks I received in the US, from, pretty much …. ALL RACES, including my own … !?!

…. that ….

“The Trump Effect” ….

…. is already, re-igniting, the divisive nature of human beings, which, the lady from Israel, finally expressed in her rhetoric.

Essentially, that, education has been forsaken, for technological devices, and attitudes, that are divisive !

From TV shows, like Homeland, to, Fox News in the US, it’s clear that as much of a circus show, as Trumps’ Campaign is proving itself to be, there is indeed, a very dangerous effect, that has yet to reach its peak … !!!

A peak that, if the world’s people are not careful, could escalate into a World War Three type, scenario, if Mr. Trump, or, people of his ilk, be they, Democrat, Liberal or Republican, reach the Whitehouse Hot Seat, this time around ….

So people ….

HEED THESE WORDS !!!!!

STOP … with the ignorance, arrogance & judgements ….. !!!!!!

…. and deal in something

…. ” BIGGER ” …

HUMANITY & EQUALITY … !!!!!

Show some sense of balance in your views, and remember that, the majority of those using their status to preach, are not doing it for your benefit, but, in most cases, are doing it for their name to go down in history, and for GREED ..,,

Beware INDEED …..

of ……

” The Trump Effect ” …… !!!!!

Peace & Love people ….

and YES, I really did write this at the end of 2015 !!!

One.

Virge.
