Before Buying into the Idea that Fractional Reserve Banking has Some Sort of Fraudulent Roots, Listen To This Battlecry From A Supermodel

"Before You Say You've Never Discriminated Against Someone, Listen To This Battlecry From A Model"

Warren Buffet Uses This One Weird Trick to Be Persuasive

*De profundis clamavi ad te, Domine;
(Out of the depths I cry to You, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice.)
