    The NWO gang should have been hung years ago. Left to their own devices
    with advanced EQ machines. They will continue living in their fear for good
    reason, For when they pass from this life to the next, they will be
    miserable. Ha ha They’ll war amongst each other while rotting, in their
    underground cities. Karma always works things out, May those who suffer
    greatly from evil actions be assured by this one fact.

    Initial images are from a supermarket in GUAYAQUIL, not Quito. Fix it, or
    clarify it please. In Quito it wasn’t felt that strong as in the coast,
    where Guayaquil is located.
