That just blows my mind... It feels like ancient history.

Yes indeed.  I tried to find additional info on the guy but I didn't succeed.  There were three Abraham Schwartzs' listed at Find A Grave, who had died in 1919, but they all had unknown birthdates/years.

Here is an arrangement of goods that cannot fail in its appeal to the bride and those friends and relatives seeking gifts. Are you giving this class of merchandise the space it deserves at the present time? This layout is not a difficult one to duplicate, even though worked out on a smaller scale. Try it!

So I can't call WWI a false flag operation? I really didn't realize it fared that well in WWI. My grandmother was around that area in WWII. Didn't sound at all pretty.*

*Of course, she might just be a paid state actor.  ;)

Oh wow.  I'm glad your grandmother made it out of there OK.  Have you ever seen that movie Slaughterhouse Five?  It dramatized the bombing of Dresden during WWII in kind of a kooky, yet highly effective way.

Being as this is Bellgab, I can't really stop myself...

It sure looks like WWI was just a giant false flag operation. Everything in that port looks to be completely intact and in good operating condition. No way that they could get it ready for this photo op in just half a year. Personally, I think that Soros was behind it.

Not long ago I tossed around the idea of making Senda commentary videos or even others. People encouraged me to do it. Senda has been dull so I made a basic out and checking a place out type of video. It is my first so it is lame but here it ia anyways. I might do other Reno locations.

Nice video, Rally.  Keep them coming!
