Would you please stop with the race card once and for all?
What is it with you people? You libs keep bringing it up and then blame us because he's black. Half black/half white to be exact.
Can we NOT like a black politician because of his policies? Is that what you're saying? Really? Is that what you're saying?
I know I now. It was his attitude you don't like.

Well, they could have strapped him down and forced him to be raped by a vaginal probe, but, they didn't.
Lily, you act like a vaginal probe is more invasive than a speculum on a routine pelvic exam which is done to all pregnant women. Or an industrial abortion vacuum. Or a penis, for that matter.

Besides, no one would be strapped down against their will to undergo a simple procedure before deciding to kill their unborn baby.

Your imagination runs wild sometimes.

Time to sing a little song to brighten up the sour rightwing mood, get people into the great spirit of being an American -

I do believe in you and I know you believe in me, oh yeah, oh yeah.
And now we realize love's not all that it's supposed to be, oh yeah, oh yeah.
And knowing that you would have wanted it this way,
I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day.

I know we really tried, together we had a love inside, oh yeah, oh yeah.
So now the time has come for both of us to live on the run. oh yeah, oh yeah.
And knowing that you would have wanted it this way,
I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day.

After what you've meant to me, ooh baby now, I can make it easily.
I know that we both agree the best thing to happen to you
is the best thing that happened to me.

Feelin' stronger every day, feelin' stronger every day.
Feelin' stronger every day (you know I'm alright now),
feelin' stronger every day (you know I'm alright now)Ö

No Carol, Obamaís didnít use those exact words but his objective is the same!! It wasnít about Uniting a Nation it was a declaration of political war on individual liberty!!

Edwin Ball moved much of the DuPont fortune down here before it was even trendy__to Jacksonville which was never trendy
Right, I knew of people here in Indiana that used to do it and spent more time in Indiana than they did in Flordia besides they even got their license plates & registration cheaper by doing it.
