If you've mentioned it then it's already been done, so why don't you be done and leave?

Aw shuddup you silly jackass!

Merry Christmas. Today is Jesus' birthday! Don't listen to any dopes trying to tell you fairy tales about silly tree fairies and such.

Jesus was born on December 25th. Everyone knows that.

Would you be interested in performing at a donkey show? It would pay well. Better than stripping at that cheap joint you were working last night.
It involves having sex on stage with a donkey while jeering drunks cheer the beast on. Sometimes they tip if you do a good job.
Paid weekly in Mexican pesos. Unlimited free tequila during your performance.

I am for equal rights BUT...I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?I am beautiful woman and I love good man…..inter racial romance is my dream… so I joined —blackwhit&#1077;Planet. &#1057;0M—–it's where to- connect with beautiful and excellent people! Maybe you wanna ch’eck it out or tell your friendsEventually it will be decided in the US Supreme Court.So sit back,relax, have a cold beer and watch the war of words continue.This issue will not be decided at the ballot box or on these forums. The judges will decide it and we will abide.

OOOooo scary... Threatening us with some god you've created in your own warped image. If that's really the best you can do, my suggestion is that you should just stifle yourself... I am beautiful woman and I love good man…..inter racial romance is my dream… so I joined —blackwhiteplanet.com—–it's where to- connect with beautiful and excellent people! Maybe you wanna ch’eck it out or tell your friendsIt violates the constitution silly. We can't make any laws in violation of the constitution. You need a basic history lesson?

I'm not married...hmmm,, You must have been talking to one of the other dumb sluts, ah, er, performers.

So! You are interested? That's fine. The donkey needs to try you out first. Please take a cheap bus down and I'll meet you at the Tijuana bus station.

You won't be paid for your first performance until after we can gauge audience reaction and the donkey's enthusiasm.

I'm sure you'll fit right in at Pedros. Remember always free unlimited bottom shelf tequila when your performing!(You'll need it!)

That'd be Mona Lott aka Aida Lott aka Sue Wee aka Jane Pudenda. He's a grouchy old malcontent auntie from some dump across the river in Joisey.

And yes, he's a bit of an idiot. He has some legal training, just enough to make his posts extra silly.

He's Fun!

being impeached is the same as being indicted....formal charges were brought up against President Clinton. However, he was found innocent of all charges.....

thee biggest problem with the study was that the sample includes children of families that started out in same sex marriages as well as children whose original families were from heterosexual families, but that were broken up by homosexual affairs. Divorce usually has a detrimental effect on the children. In fact I do believe that less than 1% of the sample were children from families that started out in same sex marriage.

The study's conclusion should have been about the effects that parents involved in homosexual extra martial affairs have on children

Yes I know. The House has the sole power of impeachment.

Please tell "Big D". He insists Clinton's impeachment "failed".
