Will I vote? Please, this is all part of a system that killed a US President in 63'. If voting mattered they would have outlawed it years ago. People, you wont recieve change when you play by their rules. Going and voting for some talking head doesnt matter. Just to prove Im right, every morning when you wake up ask yourself this: "Do I have more freedoms today than I did yesterday"? Your answer will be "no". Each and every day, new laws are passed whether you're for them or against them. This means everyday you have more restrictions and regulations, more taxes and fees. Its not "wake up America" its "Grow up America". Stop being fooled by these morons. If they havent come after you yet, give it time...they will.

President obama gives a campaign speech for a SOTU address, rails against the rich not paying their fair share, he, the champion of the middle class.

This weekend he takes another vacation to play golf with buddies, but where might you ask? Harlem, Bed-Stuy, Detroit, no, are you serious? No, he goes to West Palm Beach, the playground of Billionaires, you know, the class he demonizes all the time, that's who he rubs elbows with, nothing but Top-shelf for him and his entourage. Oh and his wife, she's out skiing in Vail, COLO. the winter playground for international Billionaires.

You people that voted for him , are the most gullible people on the face of this earth, he is laughing at your stupidity, he will never know hardship and neither will his family, and you?, you just keep believing the bullshite, fools.

The low lifes voted for osama da bomba...
The only reason why he is in office is because we all know how these subhumans would act if they didn't get what they want...
They take everything to the extreme and we probably would of had a riot on our hands....
In my opinion i feel that osama only cares about public assistance.......
That's just me though and everyone is entitled to their opinion right?
I must say.... you're an idiot.

Look, everyone...I have to come clean about something... I'm not only gay, but I'm INCREDIBLY turned on by Obama.

That's not easy for me to admit, I mean, it's humiliating for a loyal Tea Party member like me to admit that I regularly masturbate to an autographed picture of Barack Obama.

I'm queer, I'm here...so get used to it.

Obama doesn't make me hot, but Biden gives me wood every time I see him!!!!!!

I'm a homosexual, as well.

I know what you guys mean about being embarrassed. I've been sucking dudes off for about a year now, and I've kept it from my friends and family.

The truth is that a lot of us conservatives are latent homosexuals. Like Larry Craig, I spend most of my time speaking out against homosexuals, and the rest of my time getting boned by them.

You, sir are a bigot!

Do not hate Vincent because he is gay! Do not think him to be less of a man merely because of his sexual preference.

I am no less a man than you simply because I enjoy having a man's member inserted deep in my rectum. Do not think me to be an idiot merely because I permit other men to slide their wieners down my throat.

We are gay men, and we are deeply proud to say so.

Sorry, everyone...I was having a bit of a "hissy fit" there.

I didn't mean to get so pissy! You see, my boyfriend and I were fighting earlier this evening; I caught the little bitch texting this piece of club trash that we met on Valentine's Day.
