До кога България ще се представя пред света с най-лошото, с което разполага : комлексирани дребни душици без морал, лишени от човечност, довчерашни тимуровци, днешни десни, леви или каквото там е нужно, които просперират в партийтата палитра овладяли всички подмолни тактики и угодничество, излагащи държавата с компрометиращо поведение, сребролюбие, безпардонност и прекомерна разюзданост. Заблудени, те живеят в нарцистична мъгла, неосъзнаващи, че от другата страна хората са напълно наясно с всичко това, но ги оставят да виреят, като едни миниатюрни паразити без значение на дъното на някоя санитарна мебел, защото нямат интерес да се занимават с тях. А пък ние все се поздравяваме, че сме се доредили до ротационно председателство на някой скъпо-струващ комитет.
