Just repeal it and be done with it. I read once that every president but four had extra-marital affairs while in office. Folks just enjoy the gossip that's all. Let's get on with taking care of the economy! And if the "little guy" has to take a pay cut or a furlough, so should the ding-dongs in Washington and Sacramento who wasted our money.

Let this be a great history lesson to all the trap lovers (white girls.) Kobe Bryant, Michael Strahan and OJ, were not coincedences. America is not mature enough for their princesses to be with a rich Black men, because it's an insult to jealous white men. I feel sorry for Tiger Woods, because his N----wake-up call is coming soon. His white wife is going to come up missing, dead, beat, or she will be filing for divorce because he "works to much," and she will recieve millions to give to some white or Jewish lawyer. Stay Tuned.
