Shout out to George Floyd on 798 days of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals!

That’s so scary to have a stranger just come to your house with a gun, that’s just crazy to me. I hope you are safe!

Just because you are outside of the Islamic republic of Iran doesn't make you safe. The Islamic republic of Iran has assassinated hundreds of dissidents in exile, including in Europe and the US. Most notable victim was the former king of Iran's own nephew. He was assassinated in Washington right after the revolution. And the former king's last prime minister Shahpour Bakhtiyar (Rudy Bakhtiyar's uncle) was assassinated in his exile i ln Paris, France. His own son was the chief of police but couldn't protect his father.
The Iranian regime is one of the most ruthless and dangerous countries in the world.

The Islamic republic of Iran traditionally deploys foreign nationals to do their dirty work (Serbians, Lebanese, Turks etc). In this case, the perpetrator Khalil Mehdiyev is from the republic of Azarbaijan.

I'm 56 and I and my wife earn $14,000 bi-weekly returns from our digital assets portfolio but we are VERY worried about our future because of the gas and food prices rising daily. We have had our savings up high with the cost of living into the stratosphere, we are finding it impossible to retire. We can get by, but cant seem to get ahead. My condolences to anyone retiring in this crisis, 30years nonstop just for a crooked system to take all you worked for…….
