I feel unfulfilled that I was unable to read FB posts and Tweets from my favorite celebs on this topic.

Can I file some kind of lawsuit?

“Just imagine Bush or Reagan doing this.”

They would not have even THOUGHT of doing such a thing, since they were anchored in the principle of FREEDOM (Bush I more so than Bush II, TSA and “Patriot “ Act, anyone?;) NOT at ALL like the thinly disguised Communists in power now...

The ruling elite lives high off the hog with our money, and looks down their noses at the normal people out there working to pay for all of it.

OK by me. Nothing to see there but pompous politicians and liberal actors, both classes of people who think they have brains and can supervise the lives of others.

We have a rule in our house that the use of profanity, especially the “f” word, is forbidden. However, we also have a rule that the “f” word is mandatory when paired with the word “Obama”.

I'd say shame and guilt are the root cause yes!

Barry's whole game has been built on trying to overcome his subconsious shame at being half white I think!
