The United States & America

When are we gonna see this headline?
Final Transports Leave Texas: Operation North American Separation Complete

DALLAS (Reuters) - The final transports left America today, filled with happy "liberals" who are anxious to begin their new life in the United States. The massive caravan of buses, cars and moving trucks, which left Dallas under the joint protection of American and US troops, completes the five year project to create two "separate but equal" nations on the North American continent.

"It'll be hard, you know, because I'm a third generation Texan," said Mike MCCarty, 37, of Plano. "But at the same time, I'm excited. New job, new home, new country. Plus, I won't have to worry about going to jail for watching 'Deadwood' and, uh, dating."

"I'm glad to see them go," said Bo Riddle, 45, of Lubbock. "It didn't make sense for all of those people to live here. Now, they have their own place, and we have ours. Can't wait to see who's more prosperous. My bet is on God's people."

US President John Edwards and King Jeb Bush of America will continue their efforts to re-negotiate the terms of NAFTA.
Hey. Come on. Why not?

We won't have to deal with this crap anymore:

"Coach says she was fired for being lesbian"

Key words - rural Texas town, girl's basketball coach, lesbian, Bible, school board:
BLOOMBURG, Texas - In this rural East Texas town, where news spreads among the 375 residents through phone calls and gossip-gathering trips to the Shell Mart, Merry Stephens knew the rumors about her.

Stephens is a lesbian, the townsfolk whispered.

Though it was true, Stephens denied it for five years while she was a teacher and the coach of a championship girls basketball team at Bloomburg High School, afraid the truth would cost her a job.

Last December, the board of the Bloomburg Independent School District, in a 4-3 vote, began proceedings to fire Stephens for what she said was homophobia veiled in unfounded allegations of insubordination. She was put on administrative leave.

Craig Hale, who owns an oil company, said he doesn't want a lesbian teaching his children and possibly influencing the way they think. His daughter, Kaitlyn Cornelius, played for Stephens last season and said she felt uncomfortable around the coach, though she said Stephens never did anything inappropriate.

"I had nothing against her as a person," Hale said, but if he stood up for "one lesbian" that would mean he was "for them adopting kids, and my morals and the Bible doesn't allow that."
Say what?
"I had nothing against her as a person," Hale said, but if he stood up for "one lesbian" that would mean he was "for them adopting kids, and my morals and the Bible doesn't allow that."

Michael Shirk, Stephens' lawyer from the Texas State Teachers Association, took depositions from community members, including the school-board president, Derous Byers, who was opposed to the effort to fire Stephens.

Byers said in the deposition that another board member, Ronnie Peacock, told him that Stephens "doesn't deserve to work here" because she is a lesbian. In that deposition, Byers recalled Peacock saying: "We're bonded or insured for a million dollars apiece. We ought to fire her and see what happens."

In a telephone interview, Peacock denied making that statement, although he favored Stephens' dismissal. "I liked coach Stephens personally, and I thought she was a great coach and teacher, but we had reasons to fire her that I can't tell you," he said.
Gee. I wonder what those reasons were.

Next up:

"Debate rising over denying prescriptions"

As in birth control prescriptions, and you know where this is going:
A growing number of pharmacists across the country are refusing to dispense prescriptions for birth control and emergency contraception, claiming it is against their religious or moral beliefs to do so.

At some pharmacies, the owners refuse to offer certain birth-control products. At others, there are individual pharmacists who refuse to fill prescriptions or distribute them only to married women. Some believe birth control is immoral and equate emergency contraception, also known as “morning-after pills,” with abortion.

The debate — surfacing nationwide in legislatures, pharmacies, state medical boards and occasionally the streets — is another round in the battle between religious and civil liberties.
And that...is life in America.

    That is hilarious. What a tard. I imagine he was winking to someone off camera when he said it.
