You should look at the picture. What's wrong with it? How many heterosexual guys sit that close to each other when there are options?

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
"That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Happy Fourth of July.
I will ride my motorcycle to a Bar-B-Q and drink a lot of beer in the hot Texas July sun.
I can't think of a better way to spend a Fourth of July.... but I live in Texas.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Fourth of July, preserved and presented to you free of your charge, paid for by so many other Americans who chanced fate and death and normalcy of life so everyone living here can celebrate in any way they choose the beginning of the most beneficial, benevolent, and remarkable nation and government in the history of civilization.

Have a great day tomorrow, everyone. It was all done and sacrifeced solely for you.

Not so fast, far left loon.

Before you get into your typical irrational and uncompromising tirade, how about a little common sense.

Some of us are not opposed to abortion, just simply feel if it is necessary/desired, it is better to do it sooner rather than later. Late-term abortion (as in the third trimester) is pretty much what a moderate person might consider the destruction of a viable, living being.

Obama and the far left extremist radicals, which includes you, simply cannot compromise in our society.

Before you go calling others "soulless trolls", you really need to look in the mirror, because that is in fact, you.

You like to think you are so bright, but you never provide any reason for anyone else to think you are.

The apple does not fall far from the tree, we need to investigate Cruz's Communist unbringing and his goal to turn the United States into a Communist nation if he were to become president.
Homer getting a kick out of this.
You're distracting from the real story...Obamacare cracking at the seams.

<quoted text>Doesn't appear that way -
“The Administration is announcing that it will provide an additional year before the ACA mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements begin,” said Mark Mazur, assistant secretary for tax policy at the Treasury Department, in a statement Tuesday.“This is designed to meet two goals. First, it will allow us to consider ways to simplify the new reporting requirements consistent with the law. Second, it will provide time to adapt health coverage and reporting systems while employers are moving toward making health coverage affordable and accessible for their employees. Within the next week, we will publish formal guidance describing this transition. Just like the Administration’s effort to turn the initial 21-page application for health insurance into a three-page application, we are working hard to adapt and to be flexible about reporting requirements as we implement the law.”
Makes sense to slowly implement these things.
Slowly? Haha...come on Homer, we've know it's been coming since the Supreme Court decision. The problem is that the law is such a piece of sht, no one knows how to implement it. I've been part of the meetings between companies and insurance agents. They don't even know how to determine an employee count under the law. It's a mess!

I have people in my family who lived the life you just described.
They do not have the abililty to write in the English language as proficiently as you display here.
You are a fucking liar.
I don't brag. I just state facts. If I were a fraud and mooched all of my life and ended up vacationing in the White House for 8 years, I'd brag about that. Everything else is just what I had to do. Doing what you have to do is no reason to brag. It's just doing what you have to do.
Okay, if that's what you call proficiently, then fine. I was in 9th grade for 3 months before I was expelled from school. I went back 15 years later & got my GED. If they can't read or write, that's on them. I have sons &, they need help with school work. Why would I sit here lying about my life. I could tell you everything about me & you still wouldn't know me. My whole point is, understanding & seeing the life is different from living it! I lived it, I know it like the back of my hand. As for those dude that can't read or write elementary school English, tell them there's adult education centers across America & it is never too late!

Get it together.
The court has ruled abortion is legal but did not rule that it cannot be restricted.
Late term abortion restrictions are legal!
Maybe we should call it "regulating" abortion. The loony left wingers love regulations.

I do know in his first attempt at publishing Journeys in Black and White which was ultimately shelved in place of Dreams of My Father, his biographical information stated he was born in Kenya.
Posted it the other day. Apparently, even if the publisher writes the biographies, it's usually approved by the author.
Why would even a publisher print an author's birthplace so erroneously?
Interesting, hadn't heard of one that preceeded "Dreams..."!

Thx for posting it again (I know, how bad not to scroll back and look at every blahblahdatabyte that floats around on Torpicks at times!:-)..)
