    Is this true or is he trying to invite attention to himself ? Today he is nobody and no one talks about him and/or care about him.You tied him to a pole then. Now your hide is at stake.Politicians take note how things change.

    How does it feel to be on the receiving end? How does it feel to be on the wrong side? How does it feel to be on your own, like a complete unknown?
