    Doing my taxes for the first time on my own was the single most stressful part of my year because I didnt know what to do, where to go, who to go to, ect.

    Luckily my stepdad came in to teach me, but that stuff should REALLY be taught in school

    Uh they need to offer mandatory Civics classes for adults, I’d rather have that then jury duty. Also they need to have this in middle schools and maybe elementary

    She tells him he looks "old AF" but....he looks younger than she does. I'm hoping that was a joke the TDS staff told them to say.

    My school doesn’t have a formal full year civics class but it does have a mandatory half year of us gov and half year of economics and you can opt to take it ap. The problem with a mandatory full year is you can’t opt to take the ap alternative and it would be silly to take that and a year of civics because it would clog up already cramped schedules.

    can't remove people hu already established here kids go to school help them fill in paperwork and settle them especially those hu came over years hep to adjust status Azerwize is legalizing looting by government horrible practices. 

    video recordings today



    we going to be amaze wife husnab=nd be happy with how ru tin i dea L in ?

    per io di t i s



    we like nachinka no breAD

    we have nachiNka

    like in pirogi

    laik U robota?


    wanna bees?



    i am just against the bottled drinks ?

    why so popular all fact drinks aside f r o w ater or tea fresh??


    why we persecute rich ppl automatically what miens once any mo

    dazn matter what business

    why business and hu etc and then we do it and put on pedestal and then person on pedestal was wrong where were we when all that was happening nd we stick ppl on pedestal and then we get upset they fraud borderline physchology 

    is liek mass

    or like black hole invidula particle is reversible and not all of them do u see

    all of us or al of them 

    do u see



    reverse wanna be elle gant?

    pay lest?

    why mock Z

    mo kerry





    see the same as rubber on tires. 

    the person standing relaxed and flexible jaw can move around a little so impact is that the body is relaxed on receiving ed same as soft rubber on red the body moves and entire body cremates impact so it bounces. just as rubber n tire when it is softer. then the person tries to really flex into piston in to one pice and they he gets knocked Aut fast cause he is one tight pice and takes impact as one piece and not relaxes moving pieces so he get knocked liek scow hulk?

    then we have a swimmer he kind of assumes the position even more flexible in his knees he bend his knee  a little in te way entire body is relaxes and ge gets extra bouncing on both of his legs impact so he can really take the heat well and then that the guy is exposing self by bending upfront   straight knee. the close to the year it where palm lands the stronger the impact near the spine if the hit the end of the jaw and not into year they are k. 

    so rubber is really important monocles accidents happens cause bikers want faster performance they basically riding on spikes and not on teh full rubber impact 

    tires are horrible safety horrible 

    on wrong tires

    vv ron 9 


    look in th mirror that formula was string theory i lost string

    Wow i remember during highschool, civic was my favourite subject. We would have political debate in class and model United Nations. It was so fun. I never knew Americans lacked basic education like that
