There is nothing anyone will do about it,so! shut up.
ABC is just as corrupt as the others.They are all paid for by Anti-Americans,and! they don`t even care about their own children and their future in the NAU.Their own children mean nothing to them and they will give them up to keep their jobs.The TRUTH is something they don`t speak.How much more will it take for the stupid Americans to notice that they are being done away with.
