What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

Oh, but of course, the Russia investigation should be kept secret ... 'cuz if the public did know about it, either or both of two things would happen:

  • Drumpf would wind up looking more like the horse's ass he is.
  • More people would be looking to have Donnie's head on a pike!

As for garbanzos vs. chick-peas, long as my felafel and hummus has 'em, rock and roll!
