Um, if one was trying to show how to PRONOUNCE the word 'voila,' that might mean something - not much, but something. He was simply being lazy and spelling it wrong. In fact it was stupidly and illiterately wrong.

Evidently you don't care much for education. Is that why you hate educated people? It would at least explain why you're a right-winger....;)

No surprise you've got no stats to back up your other claims, either, and are evading the point for all you're worth.

WHY OBAMA WANTS YOUR GUNS>....

By Donna Rapado and Brian Hamacher, NBCMiami.com

A naked intruder who was trying to choke a pet Rottweiler was shot by a homeowner in Miami Wednesday morning, police said.

The bizarre incident happened around 5 a.m. when the occupants of the home were awoken when they heard a commotion and dogs barking.

When the homeowner went to check out the noise, he confronted the suspect, who was completely naked and trying to choke one of the dogs, police said.

He is losing too much of his base.

Vance1 was asked "Ok Vance1, tell us the tyranies being forced on Americans"

It appears Vance1 is limited to repeating talking points, that is he can't tell what tyranies are being perpertrated.

He needs to read the Patriot Act and the recent Foriegn Intelligence bill for starters. We probally ought to define tyranies too. They are not just an act that keeps you from doing whatever you want. It is not permissable to rape a 10 year old because you are horni ...
