LOL - only by people like you - and you don't matter.
The tables have turned. YOU are the pariah. YOU will be treated publicly the way we treat the remnants of racists - ridiculed, shamed, publicly humiliated. Enjoy!
you have admitted to being a queer so we know your mind doesn't work properly, that being true ,your irrational babble is expected. Have you ever noticed that even those on the left who say they support gays are the frist ones to use homosexuality as an insult? Everyone knows your sick , just some won't say it because it dosnt fit their ideolegy or agenda of their party. Its gays that will countinue to be ridiculed,shamed and humiliated whether publicly or behind your back.

You couldn't back up what you had claimed, and Leo called it right.
You're a stupid liar, without the brains to cover your tracks.
You spread nonsense and lies, yet attack those who can support their views with links to factual data.
You were never a builder, you've been a liar all your stupid life!! And soon you'll be dead, along with Thatcher and Reagan!!
I'll take that as a compliment.

Of course, an uneducated Queen like yourself wouldn't know any of that.
David Letterman went out on the streets of NY and showed the word 'corpsman' to people.
Most of them pronounced it just the way Obama did.
Care to compare Bush's gaffes??
HEY BURR HEAD,,, In similarity to Clintons infidelity,,,, it wasn't about getting his dik sukt,,,, it was about lying... Your nougat leader lies all the time.... If President GW Bush said something,,, we knew what he meant and we knew it was true,,, even if he got a word out of place now and then...

As many times that faker has proclaimed himself to be "the commander in chief",,,,, he thereby,,, assumes the responsibility of at least being familiar enough to pronounce the words correctly that he is reading off the teleprompter,,, even if he knows all to well that he is lying...

HAHAHAHAHAHA
They, like you, are a bunch of pissants. Mess with the Feds and they will die.
The Sheriffs here in the US have seen what the Modern Pseudo Liberals policies have done and how well the Modern Pseudo Liberal polices have worked out in Chicago & Washington DC have proven to be big failures and why the 2 major SCOTUS cases dealing with the 2nd amendment(District of Columbia v Heller & McDonald v Chicago) where the cause of Modern Pseudo Liberal Policies that didn't work for the Law abiding citizens of Chicago & Washington DC but for the criminals which made Law Abiding Citizens the victims in Chicago & Washington DC.

Adjusted gross income appears to be suspiciously low.
And 18% tax is low for someone whose life is dedicated to soaking the rich. Guess Obama likes to take advantage of those loopholes.
HEY STUPID! Mitt Romney's tax rate was 14.1%. That was certainly low for some who made his fortune from putting workers out on the street.

<quoted text> Where in the constitution does it say man & man & man shall have the same rights as man & woman in regards to marriage? When it speaks on equal rights, it's speaking on the rights of individuals, not the rights of groupings. The constitution also says,"the right to bear arms shall not be infringed apon, yet it's illegal for felons to possess firearms. It's becoming more & more clear Dupont, you want to get rid of the whole damn thing, because you're arguing for more gun laws. Now I'm not against the newly proposed gun laws, but I think it's rather hypocritical of you to use the constitution to push gay marriage, but argue in opposition of the 2nd amendment when it already restricts a group of tax passing citizen their right guaranteed by the constitution. I brought that up because, the majority of felons in America are black, due to unequal rights for blacks to start off with. Now we both know that is fact so, why the big push for gays equal rights, over the rights of others? I don't see you exalting the same energy to get blacks their equal rights guaranteed by the constitution!
There's good reasons for not allowing felons to own weapons but no good reason anyone has come up with for denying same sex couples the right to a civil marriage. Contrary to your illogical conclusion, the right to marry is an individual right. Don't turn this into some kind of racial pity party. A person of any race can marry whomever they wish be it a member of their race or another. This was established in the 1967 Loving v Virginia ruling.
I'm sorry that you have issues with gays and lesbians and you're not alone in that but it's not a sufficient reason to grant then the same rights and protections under the law that we all enjoy.

The ACA is a disaster and will ruin health care and health insuranse in this country. By the way 30 million people were never denied health care in this country. Most didn't have HEALTH INSURANCE but mostly that was by choice. Oh there is that word again CHOICE. The word no one can use except when it involves killing babies. Friggin' libtards are SO stupid!!!
WRONG STUPID! A lot of people didn't have health insurance because they were denied coverage. Big insurance only wants to cover people they're less likely to actually spend money on.

A couple of unarmed students were able to take him down before he could injure someone else. Would that be the case if he was using a Bushmaster?

FDR & the Democrats are the ones the created this Health Insurance Mess to begin with the Stabilization Act of 1942 & McCarran–Ferguson Act.

One consequence of the wage stabilization under the Act was that employers, unable to provide higher salaries to attract or retain employees, began to offer insurance plans, including health care packages, as a fringe benefit, thereby beginning the practice of employer-sponsored health insurance

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stabilization_Ac...

Then after the SCOTUS said in the case of United States v. South-Eastern Underwriters Association that the Federal Government could regulate the business of Insurance under the Commerce Clause FDR & the Democrats passed & signed into law the McCarran–Ferguson Act which is a United States federal law that exempts the business of insurance from most federal regulation, including federal antitrust laws to a limited extent and now the Democrats want to Regulate & control the Health Insurance Industry.

Speaking of idiots, you...

did not answer the only question I had about selective news from your side. I did not say it was just as bad. I was remarking about the fairness/corruption on your side when it comes to news.

Yeah I hear people crying in their drink all the time saying they can't afford health insurance but have no problem drinking $40 worth of booze and a pack of smokes every day. They just want some one else to pay for it. America has became a land of losers and deadbeats!!! I feel sorry for my children.
