    Well, I'm sure they will think that not starving to death or being killed by Cholera will make up for it.

    Just what 'primitive culture' do you think AOW is adopting from?
    And why do you assume that an individual would prefer the risk of getting cancer to the risk of cholera?

    AOW seems the kind of dude if he were to adopt, adopt someone from an impoverished state and that would only be a plus for a child to go from that to where AOW is.

    I feel icky for being nice now. Excuse me while I go shower.

    I actually kinda agree (not being a dick part, but lightening up). I'm not sure if he is arguing just for the sake of it, or if that is really how he feels. I don't really understand it. Would you rather AOW overpopulate the earth further or take someone already born into a bad situation to make for a better life?

    Overpopulating the earth with AOW spawn, even worse than normal overpopulation.

    I'd rather AOW burn down a whole orphanage, personally. Kids get out of their shitty lives, aren't exposed to a toxic lifestyle, and the Earth's population decreases. Win-Win.

    "Gee, I'm so glad AOW didn't adopt me and risk me eating something non-organic. That just wouldn't be good for my health AT ALL."



    "Boy, can you believe that AOW wanted to adopt me? Thank god he didn't. I wouldn't get to enjoy this wonderful drinking water that probably contains fecal matter. Our lives are SO much better here."

    Whenever I read a post by fili, this is always the first thing that pops in my head.

    Your obsession with my genitalia is completely understandable, but it does make me a bit uncomfortable.

    I just found the juxtaposition of AOW's statements interesting.
    PART 1) The food in America has all kinds of **** in it
    PART 2) I want to adopt a kid from a place that doesn't have this **** in it and bring them to America where the food has **** in it.

    That's one example of a "primitive culture".

    But that's kind of like the comparison that comes up between the US and Somalia on occasion when regulations are mentioned.

    Not every 'primitive culture' is in squalor and abject poverty.

    NC Senator Bob Rucho uses twitter to compare Obama to Nazis, terrorists, etc

    “Justice Robert’s (sic) pen & Obamacare has (sic) done more damage to the USA then (sic) the swords of the Nazis,Soviets & terrorists combined.”
    As of today he stands by his tweet as 'the truth'

    Totally keeping a cool head about political BS. Thanks, senator from my state...

    I believe the great Senator from NC is correct as to the SUFFERING that has been INFLICTED upon the middle class with this new law of the land starting in 2014. With each passing week more and more Americans are in agreement with the Senator. However it may not be until 2016 that you as well will be affected by the new law.
