interested in history does it have anything to do with these or are there other agendas in play. genuine indignation over america's worldwide surveillance or election point scoring germany pushes for tighter protection rules data protection rules following accusations of government complicity with the n.s.a. . as washington seek sanctions against any nation offering edward snowden asylum r.t. talks exclusively to the leader of nicaragua one of the country's ready to take in the fugitive whistleblower. the syrian opposition presses the us to hurry up in sending arms to the rebels the head of talks between the un security council and the ante is sad leadership. and turmoil returns to the birthplace of the arab spring is that of protesters clashed with police forces into newsies capital
enraged by the assassination of a prominent opposition party leader. international news and comment you're watching r.t. coming to you live from moscow. now weeks after edward snowden's revelations of the united states mass snooping operation against infuriated e.u. citizens germany is taking steps to address threats to previous see it wants to date u.n. data protection regulations with some top officials also calling for a suspension of the data exchange treaty between washington and the e.u. skeptics though suspect it's little more than general election campaigning is peter all of the reports from berlin. so two of germany's most senior cabinet members
have written to the e.u. counterparts to try and get them to push the united nations to change their current privacy legislation that all seems well and good especially when he comes said that the current privacy legislation was written way back in one thousand nine hundred sixty six long before things like mobile phones facebook the internet all of those things that the n.s.a. has being a parent looking into now this could be a genuine effort by the by the german ministers to try and help the privacy of the people of the european union or it could be something of a smokescreen and a bit of damage limitation you have to consider that germany was one of the major health has for the national security agency when they were spying on people around the world in fact the b. and d. the german secret service operated one of the major parts of prism this was called the x. keyscore program that basically looked into what people were searching for online
and five hundred million data connections here in germany were checked or were available to be checked by the n.s.a. now this all comes after a week in which we've seen angela merkel originally claimed that she only heard about n.s.a. spying through the media then turned out that it's in fact germany was one of these major partners now the germans have an election coming up a big general election coming up here at the end of september and the german people are understandably upset by the amount of information of theirs that was being looked at whether edward snowden knew that he could be a big influence in the german elections when he decided to leak these things will never know but what's the certain is he definitely and the information he's brought forward will definitely be used in the upcoming weeks and months before that vote or considering the involvement of germany and other e.u. countries in the n.s.a. spying program it begs the question whether this is
a legitimate attempt to improve the previous c. of the citizens of the you or just politicians attempting to cover up the fact that they've been caught with their hand in the cookie jar. well the man who exposes the scope of the n.s.a. surveillance to the world is still waiting for the paperwork to allow him to leave a moscow airport transit zone that is u.s. lawmakers voted to introduce trade or other sanctions against any country offering asylum to edward snowden it was initiated by a republican lawmaker who earlier president obama not to go to september's g twenty summit in russia and called for a boycott of the winter olympics in sochi moscow is currently considering snowden's application for temporary asylum while three latin american countries earlier said they would permanently accept him one of those nations is nicaragua its president exclusively told r.t. why snowden would be welcome there. i think the threats coming from the us work
against them it's ridiculous power like the united states threatening and young man who said enough courage to tell the truth about something that went against his principles a man who realized at a certain point but he could cross the mind of what is called intelligence work he understood were intelligence and lawlessness begins and that lawlessness has nothing to do with secret operations who are in terror with protecting state interests or with the search for scientific information a point when he sort of this is sheer madness because it isn't normal it's not like the us are forcing the europeans hand in this is just of they have something in common common positions a common strategy and the same desire for global domination they want to impose democratic principles on the world they want to judge all nations. because regular isn't the only latin american country that's rammed up its anti u.s. rhetoric recently and snowden is certainly not the only bone of contention we take a look at what's alienating the people on washington's doorstep from cuba to
bolivia in a few minutes time here on our. syrian national coalition leaders have met with u.s. secretary of state john kerry urging washington to get a move on with sending promised arms to the rebels that's ahead of the planned informal session with the u.n. security council where the ante is sad leadership were called despite the group having no official status the details now from artie's marina port in new york. i delegate representing the syrian opposition is in new york city for a three day visit that kicked off thursday afternoon during a bilateral meeting between the group and us secretary of state john kerry prior to the closed door discussions kerry said that there could not be any military solution to the syrian crisis only a political solution not a political solution is expected to be ironed out at the upcoming geneva two
conference co-sponsored by russia and the u.s. however it is no secret that the syrian opposition would like to receive the weapons and military aid that the obama administration recently promised to deliver to the rebels that are currently fighting against syrian president bashar al assad that topic was likely addressed when kerry met behind closed doors with the visiting delegation which is being led by the president of the syrian national coalition ahmed jarba what some experts are questioning at the moment is the overall legitimacy of the syrian national coalition critics say the group has no official power and lacks support and recognition inside of syria now the syrian national coalition was founded in doha and is based in stamboul some see this group as outsiders lobbying for more arms to import into syria's already bloody civil war during the meeting secretary kerry conveyed washington's commitment to helping strengthen the syrian opposition however several u.s.
lawmakers have publicly opposed providing weapons to rebels arguing that the arms can fall into the hands of terrorists and members of al qaeda who are fighting alongside anti assad groups now according to the un's latest figures more than one hundred thousand syrians have died in the nearly two and a half year civil war and with more weapons and ammunition expected to arrive in the country from washington ending the violence may be calm even harder reporting from new york marine up or ny on our team. the number of lawyers tell you can buy a series. civil war is now thought to have reach more than one hundred thousand according to un secretary-general ban ki moon political science academic dr collins cavell warns that president obama's overtures with the anti a sad groups will bring nothing but more deaths. anybody who stands on arms or children the syrian opposition they know that it's going to support the joe
hart's. the syrian government the established government they do get arms as most governments in the world do on a legitimate basis but when you go in and violate the law and support our position foreigners in a country in a don't go through it then you are declaring yourself at odds in our war with that country the united states along with saudi arabia and the gulf monarchs have declared themselves at war with syria and. violating international law we have violated not basic principles of democracy and americans are bright enough to realize your opinions generally wrong in the middle east we just went through generally expensive wars. thousands of american soldiers and now we've got. barack obama john kerry john king as well.
it's ridiculous. president obama's plans to send arms to the rebels has sparked criticism from lawmakers that home senator rand paul claims the y. tax is playing a dangerous game of double standards over syria and you can hear what he has to say that our take dot com. the birthplace of the arab spring is once again engulfed by private testers thousands clashed with police interviews here security forces used a gas to try and disperse the crowd angered by the assassination of a popular opposition leader mohamed brahmi was gunned down in front of his home by
two unknown gunmen local reporter forty santi has more from china this. and there were hundreds and hundreds of solutions to our side of the main how you can now down to miss the police used tear gas spears crowds multiple times as small when jesu's were gathered in front of the ministry of interior as well and police used tear gas right up to disperse the crowd but then there were different crowds in different places and we were desperate to get outside of the hospital where bradley is by the was there where protesters outside of the headquarters of brackets party the government has been telling me for that their lives this progress that would make him see in the arab concrete results. the constitution is not ready yet to expand. two years since the national institutes secondly started working on it. the elections the next elections there is no specific date set
ceterus so people have been already frustrated and that's mentioned the economy and foreign minister. middle east risk a strategist and a boy told us that brummies will create huge problems for the ruling party no matter who is the black. this is a very sensitive issue as you know the last time we saw hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets we saw strikes across multiple sectors. we have been identifying such a political assassination as a potential trigger for that kind of thing to happen again the problem is that no matter how much the party leadership try to rein in their supporters there's a very deep underlying political divide here between the secularists and the islamists within two days here and this is really all about determining the nature of what to his is going to look like socially as well as politically following the uprising in the revolution so it's a very contested area that is likely to be polarizing people very much already and
i think the assassination is just going to bring that to the fore once again. still to come iraq is ensuring one of the deadliest months amid a surge in bombings and killings during ramadan in a few minutes we hear whether the country's security forces are losing control over the country thought to be on the brink of civil war. france's double digit unemployment rate leaves no choice for the ambitious except to turn away from that country in search of a better we've got these stories and more after a quick break. we'll talk about language and. react to situations i have read the reports for. pollution you know i will leave that to the state department to comment on your latter point. to carry out a call it's on the job you know gonna. do no more weasel work.
welcome back now the rampant violence in iraq during the holy month of ramadan has seen the latest claim at least forty two lives is the number of deaths in july alone has topped eight hundred the spiraling unrest follows al qaida raids on two main prisons in baghdad which so hundreds of inmates escape most of whom pose an international threat geo political analyst patrick henningsen believes it's yet more proof that the authorities are losing their grip on the country's security iraq at the moment is only realizing seeing the fruits of the seeds that had been sown through a decade of occupation by the united states and other forces five hundred terrorists sprung from two different prisons. it's quite extraordinary i mean the odds of this actually happening without any outside. help let's say either from satellite from the air or telecommunications support this isn't
a prison break that al qaeda could organize all their own would have had to be either an inside job and also have outside support so it's quite extraordinary the road for cations of this for iraq. there isn't a lot of confidence in the security services in iraq after an event like this happened but i think we need to investigate further about how it happened and who might have been involved and helped. it sixty years since the cuban revolution which eventually a u.s. back to tell you to ship it marked a turning point not only for the island but all of latin america where anti washington sentiments have grown at the seams can now at exactly what has been a nine hundred people on the united states door step. latin american leaders defiant speeches against the u.s. are those regular occurrence these days but what is fueling their indignation we want the united states to be or foreigners like russia is or party like brasil like
india like all other countries you know emerging powers are friends of us not our bosses the history of how washington eliminated its sell the neighbors is best illustrated by the events that led to the cuban revolution sixty years ago back then the us supported the autocratic and corrupt regime of president bush who ruled the island for the benefit of very few people there the u.s. ambassador to cuba at the time earl krishna of. the shed i rent from the sixth floor of the u.s. embassy the cuban jobber should grow sugar and shut up some historians argue that the revolution and the subsequent alienation of the island state might have been avoided had the us been more considerate of the cuban people were rushing to when all was. in its convenient use of a rich elite class to rule the count of three and their bastard rash aspirations
are pure lation never really wanted or help cure aids or allied with the markers just four years ago the us supported the coup that deposed hundred democratically elected president since then the country has been descending deeper into an abyss of human rights abuses and instability the united states does not want a series of or more elected this is the reason they didn't like chavez goes out of chavez they got morales. they got that's libyan guy and they got the guy in ecuador . so if they get another one and one during. starts all. know chavis is nationalization of the country's oil industry as well as his subsidized oil shipments to cuba that you would tape washington for use in two thousand and two the bush administration supported the coup against the late
president chavez mass protests brought charges back to power and set the stage for worsening relations with the us it's not just for freedom to decide policy it's just the benefit of your corporation and to destroy those countries or people in order to integrate their economies and to be less dependent on the u.s. politically and economically south american nations have joined in a union called eunice for. what you have is a desire on the part of the region to have rich own foreign policy and its own economic policy they don't want to be manipulated and they want to be respected by having looked at latin america as its backyard to which it can dictate policies washington has alienated the people in a host of both countries people who would otherwise have nothing against the u.s.
in washington i'm going to take. a quick look now at some other news that's happening from around the world egypt's military have given the muslim brotherhood until saturday to join the interim government's reconciliation plan and stop inciting violence the proposal is for fresh elections in the new year and a written constitution meanwhile egypt's bracing for mass rallies of the supporters of the asad president morsi and those backing the temporary army leadership military chief survived to immediately suppress any violence. one of the drivers of the spanish train which hurtled off the tracks at high speed has been taken into. custody horrifying footage shows the train entering to it was thought to be a hundred ninety kilometers an hour more than twice as fast as it should have been traveling at least eighty people who died in what is spain's worst royal disaster for more than forty years. and in the closing arguments in the bradley manning trial prosecutors accuse the army private of acting with evil intent and
self-interest manning is charged with twenty one offenses for revealing sensitive military data to wiki leaks he's already pleaded guilty to several of them but rejects the charge of aiding the enemy which could see him job for life but elizabeth from brennan center for justice believes manning is being over prosecuted for leaking documents that never should have been classified. the government presented no evidence that he affirmatively intended to harm the united states which is what a traitor is i mean this he's not legally accused of being a traitor that word does not appear in any of the statutes against him but i think we all understand that term to mean somebody who is an enemy of the state and sets out to harm the country there's been no evidence of that i mean one thing that this case has demonstrated is that the government keeps secrets that it shouldn't be keeping in a million years and does so frequently the charges that the government brought against manning addressed only a subset
a tiny subset of the information that he allegedly disclosed because so much of the information is quite obviously not sensitive and didn't cause any harm and we just don't have a good system in place for dealing with people who leak classified information when that information was improperly classified in the first place and what we have instead is over prosecution. at r.t. dot com right now slick moves come back to haunt halliburton the controversial u.s. conglomerate admits to destroying evidence related to the one of the world's worst oil spills the gulf of mexico disaster in twenty ten online we tell you what's now at stake for the company and as tensions grow in asia japan are reviewing its defense strategy to be ready preemptive strikes if necessary head online to learn more about these stories. the number of people without jobs in
france has reached a record high tempo point eight percent cast a shadow over president alone optimism that the country is being pulled from its economic mire it's now on a twenty six month streak of unemployment growth is refinished for national explains the jobs crisis is seeing the french try their luck elsewhere. the grass is not always greener on the other side even for those eurozone countries that are in dire straits even the block's biggest economies are feeling the pinch france is now officially in crisis at least in a job crisis. recent data from french labor ministry paints a disturbing picture june so in another rise in unemployment with almost fifteen thousand more people now out of work that's five hundred new jobless every day we say there are more than the present of the provision for yes but for
salt for them but almost ten percent of the division is bought on board but for the best. the reason behind the gloom is statistics according to the labor minister is expired the short term contracts that are never in you'd as cautious companies can no longer afford to keep people sick criticize entrepreneurs have no opportunity to develop tuxes are very high bureaucracy is terrible hiring people is a big problem and it's even worse to fire them the result businesses close and people are put on the streets. and like in other crisis hit countries young people are some of the worst heat youth unemployment in france is about twenty six per cent more than double the national average. b. of a business c.n.n. to the negative trend every year he says over six hundred thousand students graduate just to realize they're not wanted also be for decades france was
a rich country and our old people had money there is a curious situation today where by grandparents pay for their grandchildren's education but when these people's resources dried out what will we do some young people think they have the answer and that is to leave the country seven million tourists come to admire the evil tower. in paris every year that's around twenty thousand people every day france is among the most visited nations on earth but for its own citizens its charms are fading. this film producer from france moved to london for career reasons at home he says he didn't have a future he sings even before the crisis franz did little enough to provide the yuan an ambitious with proper employment now after the economic meltdown those opportunities have shrunk to zero. is the whole system of the country moping and it's all stuck in this very if you're disabled you need to have this position and
you need to study from this university so they're not really open to ambitious people to oregon says he's unlikely to ever come back and it seems he'll soon be joined by many others these two french students just began their studies their plans to leave france on the first train after their graduation. that is a necessary sacrifice we can't realize their dreams here that there are no opportunities here but friend adds it's a political message to the government that something's going wrong. when all of there is no direction we're going down the state has no precise line because of something ugly and disgusting we're not going anywhere with the future is bleak the authorities try to remain optimistic president alond pledges to bring unemployment down by the end of these year skeptics say that is only feasible if most of job
seekers say or walk to france. from paris. thanks for being with us this morning i'm back with the headlines at the top of the hour now though we look behind the mainstream financial headlines in prime interest . boy oh boy there are a lot of conspiracy theories out there from mysterious extra planets drip killian creatures living among us but there also may conspiracy theories that are very plausible and some that are well actually true one that i've heard for a long time is that they are specifically trying to fool the police with dimwits to abuse the american people which is silly right right according to a.b.c. news a discrimination lawsuit revealed that robert jordan was denied the chance to become
a new london police officer because he was too smart his entrance exam score was a thirty three which is an i.q. of one hundred twenty five and it was just too high to allow him to defend the public good that police department only accepts candidates who have scores from twenty to twenty seven the logic is that people who are too smart get bored as policemen and they're more likely to quit after years of costly training. yeah is this proof of a conspiracy theory well the lowest score they accept is still around an average i.q. so that doesn't mean they're specifically trying to fill the place with subpar people but it does seem really weird to fear people with high i.q.'s entering the police force this case to have a confirms nor denies the conspiracy theory but it's definitely food for thought and the kind of not make sense to discriminate against anyone ever for having a high i.q. i don't know but that's just my opinion. speak
to the language. program c documentaries in arabic it's we'll hear. from the world talks about six of the c.r.t.c. interviews intriguing story to tell you. troy. for a visit don't call. good afternoon welcome to prime interest i'm harry i'm boring and i'm bob english it's your headline. it's official as they see capital is toast that would be stevie cohen's hedge fund which posted annual profits of over twenty percent and once had fifteen billion dollars under management a grand jury indicted the firm alleging securities and to wire fraud and the hedge fund it may have to discard hundreds of millions even billions in profit then mr
cohen is not himself indicted in fact the indictment doesn't even contain his name you simply refer to as the as a see owner so it looks like you pulled records are in for no but he made very civil suits from the investors that may not get their money back by the way the soon to be defunct hedge fund accounts by some estimates to be ten percent of daily stock market value at the new york stock exchange don't worry though high frequency traders have promised to pick up the very end breakstone insider trading later in the show and so on the very same topic but it won't be boring and with all the talk of tapering quantitative easing someone has decided to quantify just how much money printing had to do is corporate profits according to the director of market strategy and the brokerage firm in new edge that's about forty seven percent of the earnings of the top five hundred companies since two thousand he said q.e. is like an athlete on that steroids they have lance armstrong and get his tour de
france titles and for doping. maybe we could apply the same strategies to its chairman said finally the super rich are heading for the exit in switzerland after getting burned by swiss bankers who sold them out for authorities for tax evasion hundreds of billions of francs might please switzerland not only are they withdrawing cash but they're emptying safe deposit boxes most important in the story though is what they're doing with their tash according to the spiegel story they're investing in fine art fine wine and classic cars so gold isn't the only safe haven always follow the capital and right now it's an exit from cash we'll talk about the eurozone debt crisis with author and professor to fight this in just a minute. and here is one thing you are or i'm interests.
eurozone sovereign debt reached an all time high in the first quarter of this year this is despite major government spending outbacks now today the i.m.f. said that the first further central bank interest rate cuts might be necessary so what needs to be done to spark growth in europe earlier i spoke with jani but if i guess a professor of university of athens and author of the global minute or now i first asked him about the most recent version of his article a modest proposal for resolving the eurozone crisis here's what he said. it isn't like you know. this state of disintegration that it finds itself in is because we have four cracks of them that i indignantly connect one another where the banking practices as a result of the fact that we have
a common guarantee. completely separate banking systems imagine what will happen the united states in two thousand and eight that the state of nevada had to salvage their banks about going to them and the banks and that along with it and that would have caused a domino effect destroying the whole of the dollars of the united states of america so we have to deal with that. the second price we have is it creates a problem that we have a common currency but we have what i call the but in support of perfectly separable debts so every euro debt to the euro zone belongs to a single company unlike the united states where you have a common currency and you have a common dept in the form of the federal governments that in you have those no that whatsoever which is which sounds like you know from and what at least the point of huge sums by each of her debts but when you have a situation where you've got different states that belong to the eurozone and they don't have a federal. government or for that matter but if they go deserve
a central bank to back the map at some point when they can't for some reason and of course that is what's that will have them a major crisis when it comes to finance their debt there could have been a isn't the only thing that can do it just go bankrupt default but that would set off a chain reaction of the poles that will bring down of thing so we need a common only good for the modest proposal suggests a very simple way of the central bank of europe the e.c.b. two could be a dark there's a go between member states and financial markets. getting loans on the behalf of most of us that got us there and having them service them. certainly we have an investment because i see what always happens happens it's happens everywhere when you have a financial sector implosion like the one in two thousand and eight which then gives rise to a really commonly crisis when the crisis goes from wall soup of main street the
first casualty of course is investment rest and dries up and when you've got these banking graces and a segment of. europe there are places like greece portugal ireland that need the most investment not to be. able to produce incomes that will help them pay their debts and look after their banks in terms of the ones that get the least so what we need in europe is something like the new deal. we need an investment led to the cavity problem and our situation the models proposal is that the european investment banking in the bag you know wonderful institution. of the world bank and all that we need to do is simply go allow it to the job i bring about the government you don't we're not doing for political use and what's actually not a much to be sure let me let me read a quote to you that you said the euro zone feature is a central bank with no government and no national governments with no support of
central bank arrayed against a global network of mega banks that they cannot possibly supervise are you advocating a fiscal union here and is that is that even feasible in the current environment when there is so much hostility among some of these member states especially between germany and the periphery. in short not ok and that is clean but this is not part of the modest proposal and what makes it more of those things that we are not arguing that you just don't you know what we're saying is that we can deal with these problems without moving in a flood of that action so that you know you'll be inside the bag if you recall the point i made earlier. would not be financing numbers things you wouldn't have germany financing or buying the debt due to what you would have is the european central bank. utilizing. good name international markets to borrow effectively on behalf of member states states but then have them
at it pay those loans it's a bit like you know parents good parents. securing a mortgage and we have a youngster school. low and therefore the interest up to pay for their mortgages. and then have the youngsters. so the beta looms it's the only way we can salvage the news and without the vision of going well at the end of the day are we just increasing debt or we're shifting the burden of of borrowing from one entity to another maybe you can explain for our viewers how this is your modest proposal is a little bit different than what's going on currently in the in the euro zone. what we're doing now to increasing debt massively because in its wisdom the european union has decided to be consultants insolvencies of banks and insolvencies of states by lending money to the insolvent states and you know that these suicide
and policy. suits are there because the condition for lending that. we do something comes from which the old and the new debts will have to be debate so. adding debt on deb's in an unsustainable fashion is precisely what's happening today and what we're suggesting in a modest proposal is that we do the opposite that we'd find a smarter way of reducing the top of that burden of the eurozone over the next twenty years by having the you know bank. play this role that's mediated between member states. and money markets for the purposes of actually shrinking the amount of interest that will be able by the member states of the unit and also if you take into account the other policies that work with you with you or with the investment led government program all that the purpose of that is to shift i don't savings and we have massive i've been saving saving
a lot of that amount of money in year. too scared to be invested in quebec. by having to get opinion western banks that mountain of i've been saving to the best ones you journey in which the debt will be used. a lot of those see. things are actually at the federal reserve we learned that a visa for and branches of these banks in europe have over a trillion dollars just laying follow at the federal reserve but i want to get to some of these alphabet names a lot of people in the u.s. are going to be familiar with some of these programs we have the e.c.b. the b. the. the how do these fit into your particular program which is the most important . not only. these are the institutions will have and will have to use them we have to deploy them ration and the problem so fired is that we have used the infusion that we have. and other similar manner. and we've created units.
which was founded on sounds and therefore they're incapable of being strong enough to withstand the giving them so the whole point about them all this proposal is how to deploy the means that we have in a manner that allows them to do their job and ideas to defeat those before crisis face and see things. it's almost complete in europe we have a chance a bank like the united states as the federal reserve and the e.c.b. . we have. an agency the european investment bank which can be thought of as if you want. potentially a new deal agency or effecting public investments it's been doing it for twenty five thirty years very successfully you know you talk about the infrastructure of
the new deal like the tennessee valley authority i mean are you talking about this is what europe needs to be doing in order to invest in itself so that if you look at the map of europe for instance you find the eastern part. which is part of the unit green. has infrastructure but they still the nineteen fifties and sixties. no fast lane connecting let's say greece austrian german and if such a train were to be built there lots of us train guess who would benefit the most would be greece and. it would be germany because it's interesting because doing it and that kind of investment be mutually advantageous for the whole of europe all we need to do is allow that you're going investment bank to go ahead and make that investment you know investment banks can make their best and wants to make the best me but we still have you know we have a silly rule in europe where every investment has to be called financed by the national government we only have about thirty seconds left but who's era do you
have with this modest proposal are you making any tread treadway whatsoever right now. it's a very interesting story on the one hand behind closed doors there is a great you know interest you know modest proposal but when the cameras are on and the microcosm switched on in a press conference. it's dead silence because. that was my interview with you on his way to fight this professor at the university of athens and author of the global minatory now you can read his modest proposal on his website but if i could you coming up area on breaks down insider trading and not just the hedge fund there is more of the to it than you might think some even argue it should not be a crime at all after all those in congress seem to get away with it legally and with impunity then i do it's about the very same subject as well as a rule do all of the year big beer versus the big banks so like them if you got in
the state to. peace process what peace process the palestinians have suffered over four decades of illegal israeli occupation in over twenty years of the so called american sponsor to go she should have gotten them preciously little why are obama and netanyahu and abbas interested in history does it have anything to do with peace or are there other agendas in play. i've seen the perception of the cross many times it doesn't matter if there's snow a heat wave or hail stones for people keep on going i don't expect anything just one i told myself i keep on going as long as my heart told me to that's all i wanted at the moment mickey hanson so mind she see i'm carrying these sayings on my shoulder.
