  10. Seperation of Church and State

    ...that would explain US flags flying over retored WWII tanks displayed in front of churches. And why a wolf godder politician never allows his knowledge of God to interfere with loving/invading neighbors.

  15. Ryancare

    We can turn Obamacare into Ryancare by charging the poor $750 a year for no health care.
    The Republican version of the individual mandate. The poor don't need health care anyway. They don't deserve it. Welfare queens anyway.
    If we're smart about it we can use the individual mandate to funnel more money to the JOB CREATORS.
