It should be expected when there is such a disparagy of wealth in the country.

Nice to meet you, Mr. Gates. :-b


Actually, it's "pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name."

hahahha

Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and fame


did you kill the Czar and his ministers and make Anastasia* scream in vain?

WHen I was in CHarleston S.C. there were two smoking hot russian sisters who would hustle guys for drinks at the bar. One night I ran into them and chatted with them for a while. I road the bike cabs so I was cool and stuff. Man they were hot

Still 2 years away from stepping down, so he could easily change his mind.

Don't blame him for stepping down at this point though. Multi-billionaire, so why not do something else that he enjoys?

I would. :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
