Purity and Virginity Testing

We are in an Era of COWARDS and Fools. An Infamous Impeachment could not be brought to its logical conclusion. As for that other world power, russia, (does not deserve a Capital), putting all opposition in jail is Old history there. In India, the ‘word’ democracy exists in books, and is even bandied about.
