Important Breaking News from The Hill!

Stop the not-presses!
US President Barack Obama, in a speech delivered to a special meeting of the UN General Assembly, is calling Lady Gaga’s rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner — in which she swapped the lyrics “home of the brave” for “home for the gays” — “reprehensible.”
Shocking and momentous!

Hang on a sec, we may have misread...oh yeah, it wasn't anyone important saying anything important to anyone else important anywhere important, it was no-longer-a-congressman Allen West writing a Facebook post, which is something like what that guy in accounts payable who gets red-faced does. Except that guy in accounts payable has a useful day job.
In a Monday Facebook post, West wrote, “Having served in the US Army for 22 years alongside some very brave men and women, I find Lady Gaga's defiling of our National Anthem reprehensible.”
West has apparently been hired by Fox News, so no wonder Facebook has given him a rare spot on its editorial page, the prestige of which outstrips even the mighty— oh forget it.

Represense it, then. Reprehense it all you like for yours is a FREE NATION.

Lady Gaga's "defiling" of the National Anthem hasn't got a patch on Lloyd Marcus' Tea Party Anthem.

Prehensing is the time up until the rooster crows.

If you argue with the spam filter, you'll only make it worse for yourself.

You were also under suspicion of spamming Riddled. The filter seems to get suspicious when you cite text from the OP.

Moms are hawt. You can evolutionary biologist splain all you want with the evidence of fertility, demonstrated ability to nurture your genetic materials or wevs. Some of us need to collect data and do the practical field work.
