Water Shortage! Ever since the beginning of this nation, Americans have always been able to take for granted that there would always be plenty of fresh water. But unfortunately that is rapidly changing.

Already, there are some areas of the United States where water is the number one local political issue. In fact, water is becoming so scarce in certain areas that some states are actually battling in court over it.
Stockholm syndrome Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.

Werner, the lead researcher of the project. Contrary to the conventional nuclear plants, spanning across hectares of lands and requiring huge cooling tanks, the nuclear fission power reactor is as small as 1 1/2 feet wide by 2 1/2 feet high. With the cutting-edge technology of the fission reactors, the suitcase-sized plants can provide enormous amount of power compared to their predecessor, making them ideal to carry and use for the astronauts in space.

Et tu, Mr. Destructo?: Game Over: Scans of Over 50 Ron Paul Newsletters For a certain segment of the Ron Paul fanbase, no evidence of his disseminating hateful, paranoid material will ever be enough.

This provides an excellent vantage point for FDNS to observe the daily life of beneficiaries and petitioners who are suspected of fraudulent activities.”
