They make fun of everyone out of one side of their mouths while telling everyone how tolerant they are out of the other.

You hit the nail on the head. Folks like "silly" slam those who may dare attack gays, but she has no problem calling those she disagrees with like "Jane Says" gay.

Obama needs all the help he can get due to his failed presidency. Do they allow all his supporters in prison to vote?

Idiot.

governed...just not the black ones, idiot.
You have got one very twisted version of reality floating around inside your fishbowl head, dood.
I don't dispute that slavery was an abomination but the very document you quote legalized it. Again, Lincoln's intent was not to abolish slavery at the outset of the war, it only became politically expedient to do so later. From an earlier speech he quoted in his first inaugural address:

"I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."

When those grey uniforms attacked Fort Sumter, all further casualties they suffered were of their own making. The same was true from the North's decision to engage the South.
For you to lay blame on Lincoln's shoulders for all Civil War deaths is a burst of juvenile naivete in a JHS history class.
How old *are* you anyways? Seriously?
Does your father know that you're using his laptop?
You quoted it yourself:

Clearly the Union did not have the consent of the South, Ft. Sumter was in Southern territory and as they had seceded had no warrant to be there. It was the garrison of a foreign occupying power.

"consent of the governed"

Doesn't say "consent of the governed that has been forced to consent at gunpoint".

Nice myth but it isn't true, Bush got more votes than there were registered Republicans.

Yeah and I can't help but notice how quickly the right wingers dig in to defend federal supremacy.

Government just can't get too big or too powerful for the teabaggers.

Just remember, most of these folks you've been teaching think their navel is a war wound. They now have them pierced and a Tattoo with a wreath around it.

So is 0bummer considered gay? I believe time magizine called him the first gay president. I think he is. He has had gay sex with men. Larry sinclair was his lover, they used cocain and larry would suck him off. Pretty gay.

Wow, you're really fu ck in' stupid aren't ya Eed?(rhetorical question)
Did I make any distinction about the nature of the casualties?
No.
In fact all told, there were over a million casualties including civilians. So, Lincoln still killed more Americans than any other President ya friggin''tard.
"dumos"
You are the fucking stupid one in this discussion. First you said there were more combat casualties in the Civil War than WW2, now you dance and dodge. For your information Lincoln did not kill a single person. Period. Just like FDR, LBJ and Truman did not kill a single person. I can see it coming, next you will accuse Washington of being a murder. You are a sorry sack of crap. Is president nobama a murderer for sending drones to attack and kill unsuspecting persons in pursuit terrorists? I know, I know, those drone attacks never killed an innocent. You are a phoney asshole.

Joe Biden, the gift that keeps on giving. Proving once again, liberals are nothing and can accomplish nothing with out government handouts.

"“I know, literally, Barack and I talk about it. Neither one of us would have had any shot,” Biden said.“The same with our wives. Both wives are smarter than both of us. Literally, these very accomplished women would not have any chance without some help.”"

Lying POS, show me where I ever typed the word "combat".

And yes, after manufacturing the Tonkin Gulf incident I would certainly accuse Johnson of murder. Truman, I disagree with what he did but it was marginally legal.
