Todd here. This is news, but I'm not sure how to pitch it. Have a look. Fun, for sure! This Sunday. A grassroots event... and a great brunch at Fergie's. https://www.facebook.com/events/251296365862385/
Distort justice as treason. We, the American Citizens, must struggle to enforce “Unmitigated punishment for offenders" in order to anti the American leaders and the government employees who were above the law, says Bright Quang Fair Comparison Our young mindsets of humankind should be compared to discuss both special events have taken place in our civilization world without having a prejudice against each other to let us find out the bad behavior and the good behavior or so-called where is a super value of the justice and where is an injustice justice taking place in our modern civilization age? First of all, how do we define justice and injustice? We first to determine the justice that is a formal principle of justice — in fact, every people should be treated fairly with respect to relevantly similar. For example, a nation wants diplomatic relations with other nations when a big nation must build a protocol of international relations with a small country. During both sides do not only respect the protocol of international relations but also esteemed the self-determination of each other and approved the sovereignty of each nation by the private statutorily. For what we define the injustice which is us did not only respect each other but also had conflicting national interests. When the greatest powers often have never had self-respect their owned rules of the formal principle of justice when one side always fooled to other sides- therefore, the contradiction of the diplomatic relations is a power of a number (√²) or so-called is collision to a core of interests of each side. Because the untruth is always taking advantage of a mask in order to hide the greed endless, the truth is abused by the power that is why our world always takes place collision in war, trade-wars, and conflict boundaries. Next, why was the bad behavior of the terrorist taking place in the United States of America? Because God has rightly been formatted for each person’s race who has had privacy in which a people has owned the nation, a privacy religion, and a private home, and private language which is why the big nation always invades a small one. Even more, this religion always attacks other religions in order to trample down the religious faith. In fact, a people’s race is lost its faith by other powerful religions, that’s available sacrifices fights to the death in order to protect the faith. For example, a couple has taken oath loyalty to each other, but, when they’re starving. So, a wife has violated a piece of pizza of her husband when the husband can’t share a little pizza, but, he’s shooting his wife. Because of a starving make him forget to his sweet oath loyal of the former days since they’re hand in hand going on the wonderful paths in the tender promises. Therefore, the collision of a core of interests of each other is as important as a privacy religion, which easily fights for the endless death. Even because of the faith of each religion is a super sacred duty, so nobody is violated the privacy by an owned religion. That’s why the American leaders do not only violated the sacred religious Islamism but also invaded the sacred country in order to sow so much of the burden of suffering to poor people in order to prohibit the freedom of religion that is unfairness but, President Trump who has said, “The world has many places, many dreams, and many roads, but in all of there’s no place like home.” Finally, American injustice has taken place in the Republic of Vietnam by the proxy war of America which is why in all of the super values of the United States Treaties, the American laws, and the protocols of international relations had cast into the proxy war of America without had respectfully to the self-determination, the sovereignty of the Republic of Vietnam, but America was self-sold the Republic of Vietnam to communism. That’s why the United States Congress has enacted the laws to seize the Republic of Vietnam in order to fool a small poor country? In fact, the impeachment of congressional might an American President that is right enforcement the United States Constitution and American law. Thus, if the United States Congress violated the Constitutional and America law who is prosecuting the United States Congress because of the United States Congress has been enacting for few of American laws to relate to the Republic of Vietnam, but, in all of the American laws did not enforce by the International agreements since the United States Congress has had solemnly approved. When the United States Congress enacted statutorily in which has no allowed any foreign nations who violated American sovereignty, but, the United States Congress has strongly allowed the American citizens who seized the Republic of Vietnam from the central government to the local governments- and then, the Government of the United States of America did not only tear in all of the super values of America but also sold the Republic of Vietnam to communism and allowed the Vietnamese communist regime, which imprisoned all of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam to many of the Concentration camps to nationalize properties of the Southern officers by the law of the United States Congress of Foreign Assistance Act 1963, when the United States Congress did not enforce any international conventions of prisoner of war. Because of the injustice of a super America is above the law and the United States Constitution, the untruth of congress trampled down undeveloped national Vietnam and the stupid Vietnamese people were trapped by a modern civilization America.
