Not only is President Obama changing public views on same sex marriage, he is raising public consciousness about LGBT equality in general and ... perhaps even more importantly ... serving as a role model for other legislators and public policymakers.

I give Obama credit for the victory in Maryland last November, and probably the victory in Minnesota, as well.

In the meantime, the non-libtards realize that Obama gets the blame rather than the credit.

Might I suggest you do yourself and everyone around you a favor, and simply end your miserable existence. If it's going to get as bad as you predict, you might need to make haste. Make yourself a martyr for all the other "whack-a-doodles" out there! I promise create a rememberence thread!

Because he is an insatiable insensitive drama queen. If he doesn't get his weekly 'facial' in the right manner he goes postal on topix and starts removing posts and threads. I heard he doesn't waste a drop.

Threads created by trolls specifically to attack another poster are deleted because they are against the TOS of this site.

You are agreeing with the very "liberals" you irrationally fear.

Most Americans have some sort of religious belief, and yet you say that Americans are self destructing.

Is Jade a top or a bottom, hmmm, sounds like good material for a thread:)
Oh, like you haven' t created numerous threads on the topic. Maybe if you had a life and actually had sex with a consenting adult,( family members excluded), your obsession with me would subside. Try asking "World's Bigot Liar's" wife, or old daughter. One of the hags might be good for a hummer!
