24. Awwwwwww....spice cake!
God I love that.

Do you remember those quick and easy cakes any clown could make in an oven in like 10 minutes back in the 70's? They had this spice cake with frosting. First I would eat the entire frosting packet, and then cook the cake. :)

26. Well of course you had to eat the frosting first.
No self-respecting kid would make the cake first. That would have been too weird. And the cake was okay without the frosting even though you always wished you had some to put on it. I always tried to lick a little bit out of what was left in the packet and then take a bite of the cake. Never really worked, though. My older sister would shake her head at me and roll her eyes.

She was the kind who would have made the cake first. :eyes:

President Barack Obama on Friday forcefully endorsed building a mosque near ground zero, saying the country's founding principles demanded no less.

"As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country," Obama said, weighing in for the first time on a controversy that has riven New York and the nation.

"That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances," he said. "This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable."

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

20. Yay! The President isn't a shit flinging, radical regressive, anti-American, bigoted, fucking cretin
Queue the dancing Ewoks!!!

To be honest, I don't understand why the head of state would be dealing with what is clearly in the very heart of the separation clause but I am pleased he will stand on the side of free worship and practice.

Does anyone notice the things that we are fist bumping about these days? Is no one at all troubled that the most basic tenets of our nation being supported is worthy of praise and violating them is of little consequence?

It is beyond ridiculous that instead of making progress we must instead be herded into re-fighting about every battle Magna Carta forward with a legion of morons, greed heads, and dimwit supply side cultist.

28. Is it politically more advantageous to show public support for a Mosque at GZ
than it is to show public support for LGBT causes? Especially when you are a self declared fierce advocate?? Just curious.
