"even that 39 doesn't match the reality. It should have been around 139 had a proper research been done. Lower Animal Politicians and Uniformed institutions everywhere".

"How so swiftly we dropped from being the happiest people on earth to the 39th unhappiest. Shame on our politicians and their lies in the pipeline. Shame on the police and the brutality they so easily pour on poor unarmed citizens. Shame on the judiciary and all the unjust ignored"
