Then may, just MAYBE, a liberal will finally take responibility in their filthy depraved decadent life by at least proclaiming this is Barack Hussein Obama's economy.
Anyone in love with Israel should move to Israel. JEWS too!
NNNEXT!
I wish that ALL parties would take responsibility in their filthy and ridiculous behavior over the decades. This economy is certainly not just Obama's. How long do you honestly think it would take to completely fix the economy after the last administration? Four years? It won't even take two Presidents to fix it. It will be years before this economy recovers so the blame can not be placed solely on the current administration, but they do help to grow the debt. I agree that anyone who puts Israel first or is in love with it, then they should relinquish their citizenship of America and become an Israeli national. Had Republicans been in office over the past 6-7 years, we would have the same situation, nothing different except probably more in depth wars with nations this country should never provoke a war with first.

President Obama was never an LGBT basher. His own personal but religious beliefs were that he believes a marriage is between a man and a woman. He was intelligent enough to distinguish his own religious views from that of basic human rights. Look everyone on this forum probably know that I am one of the most anti-homosexual...whatever you call that crap on here but I don't hate the person committing the acts. I just hate the acts itself. You still can't deny basic human rights to people who also pay their due taxes like heterosexuals do. That is the difference. He expressed his own personal religious beliefs when it came to marriage. That was not telling you that he hates homosexuals.
I think Obama worked his way through college as a male prostitute. He is definitely one now. As far back as wan look, there has been some sort of issue with Obama's sexuality. There is one photo around showing his with his Pakistani lover as a teenager. Obama seems to have never had a girlfriends before Michelle. But he obviously had plenty of boyfriends: http://hillbuzz.org/is-barack-obama-gay

You talibangelical scum have not similarly defamed all heterosexual males on the basis of your entirely fictitious jihad against rapes of women, a fictitious jihad you've made up which no other fundie theocrat or stupid bigot has mentioned, nor tried to act upon.
Ergo, you merelly have a severe sexual obsession with all things (male) homosexual. Misogyny underlies it. You're very sick. Luckily you're out of step with about 90% of US society.
What you claim is so idiotic. Rapists of women are convicted and serving in prison all the time. Great focus is given the crime with lengthy sentences. DNA allows the arrest and conviction of more rapists than ever before... Your claim is stupid.

However, homosexual rapists are given slaps on the wrist and some of your foul friends here actually acclaim it as OK if the adolescent is somehow bullied and abused into accepting the behavior... which is common to the serial homosexual rapists of Hollywood. More and more exposures of the homosexual conspiracies are coming to light... your "queens" are still operative... Emmerich and other extremists cover the illegal behavior of homosexuals they hire in their films... raping very young boys in their trailers and beside the Singer/Emmerich homosexual orgy pools.

Hill Buzz is one of the most bias illustrators known. No one with common sense automatically trusts what those people say on there. Obama did have a girlfriend besides Michelle. Prior to Michelle, in college for at least 2 or so years, he dated this White woman. Just because you don't see it in the media doesn't mean the guy is a homosexual.

As Michael Scheuer fmr cia and head of bin Laden unit and Georgetown professor said before the "Homeland Security" not so long ago with respect to our debt and that is "We're done like dinner"!
We're done not because of particular political parties but because of lack of will to do the people's work, what we hire these people to do, but we ultimately allow this to continue. No matter the party, race, or creed, all of these politicians will be this country's ultimate demise. Even if the next President is a Republican, this country's debt will still spend out of control. You have two parties of gnomes, one who wastes money on welfare and freebies then the other who wastes money on unnecessary wars.

America has a powerful gay community. Obama is simply pandering to them to ensure their support of him by implying that their concerns are as significant as our Civil Rights movement: which is a lie of course.

Constantly calling for the death penalty for all violent rapists is my special focus. Attempting to suggest otherwise is the bigoted position. In contrast, let's see you voice disapproval of the homosexual posts here that actually approve of raping young adolescents.

You tried to avoid the point.

The point is you don't similarly demonize heterosexuality itself on the basis of all the raping and incesting they do, much of which they get away with. In fact, rape is regulated, not truly illegal.

Also, your claim that rapes of "very young boys" are being alleged - not even proven - is incorrect. You can't be rational about this very, uh, invigorating-for-you subject.

The laws on age of consent are consistent for all genders and sexual orientations. Individuals in both cohorts, gay and str8, commit sex crimes.

You have a special sexual problem and therefore you focus one set of standards on homosexuals (male) and another on heterosexuals.

Who was she?

Fools like you denounce anybody who disagrees with Pervert in Chief Obama. STFU and show us who his girlfriend was. He never had one. And since he has been president, there have been all kinds of issues between him and Michelle. She is obviously hungry for penis.

Obama is one of them. That has been a constant theme nearly every time Obama makes a public statement. He is obsessed with homosexuality. And we the people are tired of it.

I know what you said here in this thread. It is the typical "gay" agenda. You may not be a homosexual for all I know. I do not care one way or the other. But you seem like one. No normal human being is going to waste so much of our valuable time here defending that crap.

No. Some of you are perverts. Others are not. It is normal not to be homosexual. This is the history of humanity. Although Only GOD knows the future, I see no evidence that GOD created mankind is likely to become homosexual any time soon. This crap in the USA under Obama is not new. At the same time, we never see it is China and the rest of Asia and the Muslim countries which are the vast majority of humanity. There are a few homosexuals there. But not id sufficient quantity to have spread HIV as it is in the USA and in the part of Africa. But even in sub-Sahara Africa, we hear the clarion voices of T. E. Comrades Robert Mugabe and Yahya Jammeh raised against this foolishness. And all intelligent Africans are against it. What it is coming down to is the absolute necessity to fight HIV/AIDS as it has killed many millions of our women.

No, it's the "religious" kooks who wasted time and tens of millions of dollars trying to bar equal rights in adoption, military service, private sexual conduct, employment, and now in marriage equality. That's been the waste of time - trying to block equal rights.

Homophobes are now concentrated in the less educated, older, more uber religious demographics. In addition, many are mentally ill, un Christian, immoral, and law breaking in their discrimination.
