      Praising largest gay parade in Asia featured in your video? What do Asians think about gay men on surragacy for gay dot com buying babies from convicted human trafficker tammy davis charles. Their website says if you got the gift by letting aids infected semen mix with your rotting feces you can share the gift with a Vietnamese $1 a hour vagina rental surrogate. To think asia supports their women being pimped out for $6000 over 9 months to get AIDS and make gay AIDS babies with pride - then you got something wrong with you. How much would you pimp your sister out to take some AIDS semen? Or only cheap asians from Bac Ninh only good for it? Disgusting mate. Take your homoshit out of your videos.

    I really fear for India with climate refugees from Bangladesh and Myanmar coming over and creating a strain on an already overburdened country. There’s already lot of resentment in India over illegal Bangladeshis. Can be a cause for future riots. Hope Modi is planning for this and working with BD and MY to invest in resilience infrastructure.

    GDP growth in India, Asia’s third-largest economy, is set to bounce back to rates exceeding 7% for the next three years, according to the World Bank.
    It will be a few notches better than China, and miles ahead of other major economies.
    This is a moment of respite for the Narendra Modi government, less than a week after the country’s chief statistician pegged India’s GDP growth for financial year 2018 at the lowest level in the last four years.

    Jesus Christ second coming is on the 25 January 2060. I am a prophet of the Lord, and I was given a confirmation that Jesus will be coming back on the night of 25 January 2060. There is still time to repent. Turn way from your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. God will baptize you with His Holy Spirit and you will be born again. Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is near! This is the word of the Lord.
