An Analogy To Explain Gay Marriage For Liberals

Posted on Saturday Mar 1, 2014

And just what is wrong with America? Well, that would be the fools we have elected to govern us. You may have your qualms with pop culture, school curriculum, gun violence and many other things, all valid concerns of course.
