Now that EVERYBODY has the right to marry and use each other as human trampolines; more bounce for the ounce, maybe we can get some laws in place that makes it against the law to pump our behinds with bullets. Dogs can't be mistreated without folks getting their asses in a bunch. Maybe some laws can be enforced that can make "people" feel the same sadness about the extra holes blasted in our butts by Klan Kops and Self-hating Brothers. Make it against the law To Kill a (Rhymes with Bigger).

Everybody has to stand up. whether off a little or off a lot. We got to stand following the example of POTUS Obama in Charlotte. Even the most well thought out campaign, with its stripes of true and false, shows its value and its strength through spiritual power as connected to the political scene.
