    I do not write many responses, but I browsed a few comments on this page 10 Deadliest
    American Wars History Lists. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Is it just me or does it appear like some of the comments appear as if they are
    coming from brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional social sites,
    I would like to keep up with you. Would you post a list of every one of all your shared sites like
    your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
