  5. Front runners take their stands

    All but one of 2012's leading candidates have taken their stands against abortion abortion and gay marriage except one, 2012 hopeful President Barack Obama.

    “Any person subject to this chapter [of the UCMJ] who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite seyx or with an animal is guilty of sodomy,” Article 125 of the UCMJ states. “Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”

    Thank you President Obama for making sure that this law stands. Too bad your parents never taught you that what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

    2012 looks to be the year that sees laws allowing an emotionally stressed young woman to decide the fates of millions an unborn potential American being overturned. America will no longer have the shadow of dead babies blocking the sun from shining through and warming this wonderful land of ours. Yay!
    All of the leading hopefuls agree when it comes to sodomy, it should be against the law. As Commander in Chief of the US Military, President Barack Obama has personally seen to it that this law stands:

    “Any person subject to this chapter [of the UCMJ] who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sezx or with an animal is guilty of sodomy,” Article 125 of the UCMJ states. “Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”

    Front runners: what is your point? Try as I might, I can't figure it out. What's it to you what people do in their bedrooms anyway?

  12. Dingo took my baby

    That wasn't a dingo lady. That was YOU deciding the fate of an potential American citizen. YOU used to decide with a coathanger to assist you before 1973 when the Supreme Court changed their minds about who should decide.

    Who in the hello would want a stressed-out young woman deciding if you live or die?

    Imagine if Julius Caesar had been an emotionally stressed young woman when it came time to decide if the gladiator lived or died. Most of her thumbs would have been pointed up, and most of the gladiators would have been executed. (the 'thumbs down' meant "No, do not kill him". Hollywood even got that one backwards)

  15. President Barack Obama's actions speak louder than his words

    It has often been said that a persons actions speak louder than his words. I have observed intently President Obama's actions, and as far as I can tell, neither he nor his wife take it up the ass. The man he relaced did though, at least once that I know of for sure:

    The final rite of initiation into the 'not so secret anymore' Skull and Bones society involves the man wishing to become a member to allow an existing member to sodomize him.

    President Barack Obama was never a member as far as I know. Thank you sir, and I'm sure that Michelle appreciates your stand on this vital issue even more than I do.
