LOLOL OMG! The republican clowns keep coming!
.
Gingrey forgot to mention he wants everything in black; white; and shades of grey
.
Just like in Mayberry USA
.
If the republicans only want to govern their fellow white supremacists; who is going to govern the rest of us?

So wait, they want every child to be taught to be naked all the time, all the males go out and hunt dangerous animals, while all the females are foraging for sustainable foods?

A bit outdated, we have clothing, refrigerators, and grocers now, no need for the traditional crap anymore.

Let's put women back into corsets and crinolines, where they belong. Kinder, Kueche, Kirche.

What a jerk!

So Gingrey wants to teach a bunch of kids in single-parent households, that the parent they are being raised by, can't really do what the kids themselves have already observed that parent doing?

Representative Gingrey, the lobotomy seems to have been only partially effective. Much of your brain has been destroyed, but you're still a danger to yourself and others.

HEY! I resemble that remark!

Silly youngsters are spending millions and buckets of skull-sweat trying to make a car drive itself.

I've had one of those, and if I fell asleep in the seat I woke up at home. They knew where their stall and feed bag were, and werenn't bad company other times. Didn't need billions in road construction to get to some ruggedly beautiful spaces. Come to think of it, I didn't have to send hard earned cash overseas to keep them running, either.

Things took longer, but I ended up with the same things, far more cheaply, and didn't need Xanex for stress I never developed in the first place.

Perhaps best of all they were their own replacement factories, and when worn out recycled into other things with nearly no waste.

None of this has anything to do with the "traditions" this heter-chauvinist piece of work is pushing.

Yeah, me too. I think after we triumph in the battle for Marriage Equality we may have to begin all over fighting ageism in the gay community. It is long overdue.
