Liberals are idiots, Mostly

I should be sorry for the highly controversial and click bait title. But I am not. There are some things in life that you can not just let go. This taunt is one of them.

Recently, Thomson Reuters published a report stating that they have found out the world's most dangerous countries for women. This was the eight iteration of their annual undertaking where they assess several metrics to reach a conclusion as to where countries stand.

Yes, you read that right. Even a war torn country with a barely functioning Government is safer for women that India. I know for a fact that India has its share of problems. But Somalia and Syria being better than India in terms of women safety was a bit hard for me accept point blank.

Liberals in India picked it right up. This is as clickbaity as my own title here. The only difference is that they won't admit…

I asked him "How old are you Ali?he replied "22years mam."He told me "At the age of 16 I started driving without lisence,I used to drive big vehicles ,now I drive tourist cars during the seas…
