  1. What the hell is that Angel Jardine talking about with "so many other religions outside of Christianity get help and response from the government"?

    This clip made me shudder with the similarities between Perry's and GWB's style of sounding stupid, "we have discard at home".

  2. "Discard at Home? Yes, Rick Perry should know about "discard" or he'll learn soon enough when he's discarded as a candidate.

    Religion is the wart on the ass of humanity.

  4. Interesting that Al Jazeera provides the most balanced media coverage yet...

    US Media needs to grow-a-pair.

    But why is no one mentioning that the SPLC has designated AFA a Hate Group?

  5. Don't look now, but this just might be the look of politics in a big way. Low information voters (a majority?) have fundamentalist tendencies. Stay tuned.

  6. In January 2013, if President Barack Obama isn't sworn in again it will probably be President Rick Perry. And President Rick Perry will make 3 appointments to the United States Supreme Court who will decide issues concerning civil rights for America's Gays.

    The best is yet to come and, babe, won't it be fine. (sing along, children)

  7. What are you all talkin' 'bout? He's not favoring any one religion over another. That would be unconstitutional.

    And besides that, the function was put on by The American Family Association. Except for all that hate group stuff, aren't they just real unbiased?

    Well, you all just need to loosen up so here's another YouTube you need to watch. It was put out by The Heritage Foundation about poor people:

  8. Here we go again scare the crud out of everyone with the invisible man in the sky. I will never vote for anyone from Texas even though Austin is a great city. The black pastor had it so right.
