Pedophilia has not a thing to do with being gay, I am sure the court explained that all to you under the terms of your parole.
And you have already shown us how fond you are of the founding fathers, the majority of whom owned slaves...
Happy to point out your spelling errors, though, Donglicker.
You mean you being gay and being a pedophile are two separate genetic defects? Is your propensity for having gay sex with farm animals a third distinct defect or is it related to one of the other two, or both? Happy to point out your spelling errors, flamer.

Didn't anyone ever teach you that you shouldn't start a sentence with a conjunction? Maybe your GED didn't cover that fact.

I think barefool is on here looking for dates. A sane person would grasp that it won't work after the first several thousand unsuccessful attempts.
The only good thing about barefool is the number of people it has converted to conservative. No sane person would align themselves with barefool.

STFU.
You don't know what you are talking about.
Cuba has 'democratic processes' and so did the USSR.
The USA is a democratic federal constitutional republic, I don't need your uninformed, high school drop out opinion, especially since it seems you lack the ability to move any further in your education.
Get your GED and get back to me.
The first question will be: Is the USA a democracy?
Apparently you do.

No one who knows what they are talking about would say such a thing, Donglicker.

Conjunctions to start sentences

If anyone tells you starting sentence with a coordinating conjunction (and, but, for, nor, or, so, yet) is incorrect, hand them any piece of professional writing and have them take a look. In literature, journalism, speeches, and formal writing of all kinds, using these conjunctions to start sentences is more than just acceptable; it’s ubiquitous. Open any book, even one with technical, scholarly, or otherwise formal writing, and you are likely to find numerous examples. There are exceptions, of course, but these are rare. That there is some sort of rule against sentence-beginning conjunctions is an old myth that never seems to go away despite the fact that it is not at all borne out in the writing of actual English speakers.

There are many reasons to start a sentence with a coordinating conjunction (as far as we know, nobody questions the use of subordinating and correlative conjunctions to start sentences). For instance, sometimes it helps create the tone of an afterthought or a second guess—e.g.,“I think I’ll go to the store. Or maybe I’ll just stay home.” Sometimes it helps create a smoother transition between sentences—e.g.,“If you don’t like conjunctions at the beginnings of sentences, then don’t use them. And if you don’t mind them, then don’t worry about it.” Sometimes it helps move an argument or narrative forward—e.g.,“When he went to bed that night, he was human. So he was surprised to wake up the next morning with paws instead of hands.” Sometimes sentence-beginning conjunctions just sound right. Fluent English speakers need not question their instincts on this.

As with many longstanding English myths, there are people who feel strongly about this one. But there is no reason to appease these people in this case—except perhaps when they happen to be our teachers or bosses—as this myth is especially useless, and the sooner it’s forgotten, the better.

Fewer words:

Typos are what they are... And Americans still have the right to have firearms. No matter how scared you are little guy. Now go spread the word that America is a democracy and be laughed at.

I understand: you have 'typos', and everyone else in the universe you disagree with must have poor education.

Skanque.

You also have a ENTER key and of course if you do know how to spell... you have a backspace key.

I don't have to spread the word.

People who know what they are talking about know the USA is a democracy. They can hold the concept of the republic and the concept of a democracy and know that they are not mutually exclusive.

And they don't care what you think, BOY.

Laughter rings out! And guns continue to sell because of our Constitution and no matter if 55% of Americans vote to make it illegal. Rights aren't given by government.

A 4-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed himself with his father's gun in north Houston early Sunday morning.

Jaiden Pratt was spending the weekend with his father, 21-year-old Marquiez Pratt, in the 13500 block of Northborough, just south of West Rankin, when the accident occurred, said Sgt. Brian Harris with the Houston Police Department's homicide department.

Father and son had been sleeping on the couch. The young boy woke up and picked up his father's handgun lying nearby, shooting himself in the stomach, police said. Neighbors heard the shot.

COLUMBIA (WACH / AP)- One woman is dead after an early morning shooting in Richland County.

Richland County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a shooting at a residence on Todd Branch Drive at approximately 6 a.m Monday.
