Rand Paul: ‘Black & LGBT Folks? Just Try Another Bus’


Rand Paul has recently denied the legitimacy of laws forbidding discrimination against LGBT employees.

But this is not the only argument he has ever made in this vein. See this transcript of some previously unrevealed comments he made at a college.

OK. Yes, from a purely moral, or dare I say ‘moralistic’ point of view, it wasn’t very pleasant for black people to not be allowed to sit on the front of the bus.

High School Senior 2 Gay 2 B Remembered


Posted by your South America correspondents, Maria and Consuela Lopez.

Sex is a private matter, except for performance artists employed in the adult entertainment sector, who are generally really nice people.

Except for Diane; she was a real bitch.

Oh, I know Hermana; I hated her too!
