Joe Biden claimed GOP budget cuts were pro-rape since fewer cops results in more crime and rape. This was in MI if my recollection serves.

GOP just cares about responding to lies as a fundraising tool: spreading truth will have to wait and since many don't understand justice delayed is justice denied fuckered are we.

Any citizen of our grand country ought to be able to go anywhere in it, even Fulsom Steet or Greenwich Village and feel human, even when ESPECIALLY when, their sexual orientation is in the minority.

God matters and Democrats voted to remove God from their platform, against what King preached.

Sad MLK.

Sad MLK.

Sad MLK.

Not said okay.

Steve Jobs, the prickiest prick to ever prick, pricked my word.

Just the one, sad instead of said, but where does it terminate?

With military cost overruns we at least get a bomber or a cruiser after it is all done. With this we get a bunch of Leisure Suit Larrys set to conquer Las Vegas.
