    Its beats the logics and pains me ...




    Its beats the logics and pains me to the marrow of my bones to think that somebody representing me in the National Assembly and the National Cabinet is not telling the president the truth. This is a betrayal of first order.

    Shouldn't I drop 's' in the underlined parts?


    Logic (noncount)

    The whole part from "Its" through to "bones" is badly written.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Odessa, IMO it is quite useless to worry about such minute typos you're lately asking about (unless, of course, you work as an editor for those pages/news agencies). Just my thoughts, though!
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
