All that foreign aid (American taxpayer money) that we pile into Gambia goes directly into Mr. Pottymouth Jammeh's pocket
.
If we cut off that money and use it to balance our own budget; Mr. Pottymouth Jammeh would start singing a different tune in a hurry

LMAO, the screen name you used is great.

Agreed, to an extent. These people are exceptionally obsessed and exceptionally stubborn. My guess is that their first response would be to behave extremely defiantly in the face of lost aid, proclaiming to the world that they won't back down, won't budge, etc. etc.

But I like that you called him "pottymouth"; I was struggling for words to explain how filthily I believe the man is behaving. It boggles, boggles the mind, boggles the mind beyond all belief, that if *THIS* or something exactly like *THIS* were said against women, it would be screamed about worldwide; that if it were said against blacks, it would be screamed about worldwide; that somehow this "person" thinks he literally, literally has a right (?!?!?!) to say this about gay people?... boggles, boggles the mind.

Calling him "pottymouth" is putting it extremely mildly. He's behaving in ways that remind me of several entities I won't name, but they are all excoriated as some of the worst things in existence, of that I can assure you.

I admire and applaud the African nations for taking a strong stand against the disease of homosexuality infesting our world today.

Feel free to move to Africa, where you can convince your delusional mind that your way of thinking is, little by little, becoming a thing of the past.

It sounds like Yahya Jammeh is going to through his hat into the ring for the Republican nomination in '16.

I like his pantsuit and his fetching little, cream colored hat.

Tres chic.

He jumps on every anti gay thread with his hundreds of morphing names/locations as if his little posts are some statement of political change. Delusional freak has been at it for 6 years, and look at the progress that his been made for equality.

I remember visiting the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam many years ago. A letter to Hitler from a young German girl about Anne's age at the time was displayed, lauding him for killing Jews and saying people need not feel too bad, it was like someone killing a cockroach.

Wow, how things have changed!

I guess you are too dense to realize I was doing a satirical imitation of the common gay ad nauseum argument about being on the "Right side of History".

Well, Campy, as usual, your satirical humor fell flat. It must really bother you that you are on the "wrong side of history". Now, go have a fantastical evening with that satirical imitation of a wife. Bet she is flat, too! Nothing a little air pump can't remedy.

That sort of flat, witless claim to "humor" is the pedo, racist mark of Daniel, Stanton, Foxy.

"As far as I am concerned, LGBT can only stand for Leprosy, Gonorrhoea, Bacteria and Tuberculosis; all of which are detrimental to human existence," he added.

Can't argue with that!
