    So who really give a rats rectum. with the Government threatening to void the Constitution on a daily basis and in some cases actually usurping it blatently. with a Fraud in the Oval office Gangsters in Congress and a Bench full of sissys on the Supreme Court who cares if Michael Jordan is even breathing. Oh I know simpering Diversity and entitlement flavored Kool aid sippers. Most Ameicans are more concernes with wether they are going to turn 50 in the manoer in which they ahave be come accustomed.

    If this site presents another article that does not demean Blacks, they'll likely lose followers. Unless of course it's a Black who will attack Obama.
