    can’t wait for the SONA. wonder what the president’s sona will center on… yeah since he can’t brag about the backward economy, he’d just say he was successful in his anti-corruption drive (against his enemies). and he’d say lots of promised investments are pouring in (just like the last sona’s investments which even up to now still remains as promised investments). hmmmm can’t really wait to hear the sona implode. lol

    there’s nothing to report. it will just turn into a social gathering of pimps, prostitutes and lgbt’s. as usual, expect a downpour of saliva.
