Ugandans, with the help of American Republican Fascists like the Talibangelical Rick Warren, whom our esteemed president allowed to give the invocation at his first inaugural, have assisted, and advised in writing law designed to literally murder an entire class of people.

And Rick Warren's gay son committed suicide due to his intolerant upbringing.

This is why our president has intervened. And should.

Religious Fascism must be destroyed in all it's forms, and the secular laws and will of nations like America will prevail in this.

"Murdering an entire class of people". Is a bit of hyperbole, don't you think? Or are you talking about abortionists?

Who ran away from whom? I remember Obama drawing a RED line in Syria and Putin chasing him back. Where is Snowden, if not a half a world away? Putin was able to employ a spy, gain the intelligence, embarrass the once-greatest nation in history and have the citizens of that that same nation cheer him.

Open your eyes. How could Obama let this happen? Why would he?
I don't trust Putin. Neither do I trust Obama. But, you should try to understand how your words and actions are received by others. Why should the Ugandan President concern himself with Obama's statements, in light of Obama's history?

It's sure not from Americans.

It's from East Africans evidently.

Obama better yell at them some more.

While he's at it, he can yell at himself.
He did yell at them all weekend, he said FORRRRRRRRRRE several times. Don't know if they heard him from California.

then you remember wrong. waht is happenening in Syria with the chemical weapons now? for the very first time they even admitted they had them, and now they are allowing outside inspectors into their country to take them away!

all because putin backed down in his own back yard from the threat of US military action from half a world away...

when you can't even see the real world clearly, none of your assumptions will be correct.as you point out daily..

I haven't heard anything about the Syrians thanking Obama for allowing Assad to bomb them with "conventional" weapons and starve them with sieges.

Putin backed down from what? He wasn't threatening any action. It was Obama who was threatening to bomb the Syrians to protect them. It was Obama who backed down once Putin gave him a face-saving exit.

It's time for ALL gays to come together once and for all!
EVERY gay in the U.S. should go to Uganda and march down Main Street and let President Yoweri Museveni that this outrage will not be tolerated!

How about it? Can we get a grassroots campaign together and set up a gay pride parade for President Yoweri Museveni in Uganda? Maybe if he sees the colors, the dancing and the half-naked same sex couples crowding his city he will see the error of his ways and change the law!

It's worth a try, isn't it? Hurry before his furor calms down. Strike while the fire is hot!

Uganda's 'president' had BETTER start caring' or Obama will make the armored trucks turn around and load all that foreign aid back on the money boat for its return trip to America
.
To heck with propping up an obscure kangaroo dictatorship in some dirt-clod-eating vine swinging African jungle country that murders and eats gay people because they taste so sweet
.
American taxpayer's foreign aid money can be put to better use buying food for the millions of starving unemployable republican families right here in America
