And slowed down by nonsensical regulation. Now I want to share with you some of the good sides of the Serbian capital – Belgrade. Such as its beautiful location at the confluence of two big European rivers – the Danube and Sava.

THE BROWNING OF AMERICA Washington's demographic war on white Americans enters the sixth decade, and the results are devastating. This morning, I perused the latest statistics from the 2020 US Census.
