Washington's hemp farm was meant primarily for fabrics, not ganja. Sleeping in the same bed as another guy does not make you gay. Duels were not legally considered murder. Oh, and you forgot JFK's ties to bootleggers and the mob.

You watched that same lame-ass show on the Founding Fathers last night, too, didn't you. I assume the rest of the info came from US history class. Lame pic, bro.

Sleeping in the same bed as another man doesn't make you gay.

It's not homosexual to sleep in the same bed as a guy, marijuana wasn't illegal, marrying your cousin still isn't illegal in 33 states, and duels used to be honorable.

and i could be wrong here but i remember seeing in a movie slaves could also be referred to as "Belly Warmers"

Washington: Marijuana was legal and was used to make hemp and paper products.
Jefferson: Had relations with one slave.
Jackson: Duels were commonplace and considered honorable.
Lincoln: Sleeping in the same bed as another man doesn't make you gay.
Nixon: ties to organized crime doesn't necessarily make you a member.
Clinton: no comment.

tl:dr: most of these are overblown.

Marijuana was not primarily used for smoking, it was for making fabric.

Marriage was not a big issue way back then, not like it is now. Einstein also left his wife to marry his cousin. Marriage has become an issue present day because other big issues have already been resolved!

They're slaves. If Jefferson was into that stuff, by all means. There's nothing wrong with that, to be honest. Jefferson treated his slaves well, better than many contemporaries. Honestly this isn't much of a fault and Jefferson was a big political figure in the early days.

Duels were commonplace back then, as a means to settle disputes honorably, not as an excuse for two people to try to shoot each other to death. Legal in some states, illegal in others, dueling was a common practice and not aimed to take lives. Wounds suffered were essentially marks of honor. In fact the duel could go on until both sides agreed that the honor of both participants had been fulfilled. Deaths were usually accidental, as shots aimed to wound went haywire. Plus, 13 duels? Andrew Jackson was the sort of man that would participate in WAY more. Many more duels most likely went unrecorded.

Nowadays "sleep with" and "had sex with" are considered the same thing. No. Just because Lincoln had a bodyguard sleep in his bed with him does not mean he was homosexual. Even if he was, why do you care? He's more of an inspirational leader than you or I or anyone on the internet is ever likely to be. Lincoln rejoined the two halves of the nation after winning the Civil War and freed all the slaves, only to be assassinated anyway.

Cuba is a country. Therefore the term "Cuban" is not referring to a race. Cuba was/is politically unstable, ranging from socialism/communism to dictatorships.
Nixon =/= his relatives

JFK led us through the Cold War/Cuban missile Crisis. He had to take that medication just to fight off the pain in his back so he could stand. He needed that medication!

Clinton's a dickwad.

I agree with all those except the last. How was he a dickwad?

Would you like to sleep with Hillary?

Also I've heard him speak and he is very intelligent...

If I'm president in the 20th century, the only person I'd be sleeping with would be my wife.

That'd way I'd be taken seriously when I say "I did not have sex with that woman. I did not engage in sexual intercourse with her"

Long story short, it made him look bad, and having a cheating president at a time when America was (and still is) the most powerful nations in the world is just embarrassing for everyone.

How terrible of him to ensure that Americans take as good care of their bodies as they are required to take of their cars.

no. he is taking money from the taxpayers to pay for this. plus this covers abortions. i do not support abortions, so i really don't want to pay for some teenage whore in connectictu whom i have never met to get an abortion because she had sex before she was ready for the consequences....
#47 to #41 - sparkieemae (08/16/2012) [-]
To pay.. for people to be required to purchase insurance? Uh. No. You are now required to purchase insurance if you do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid. They tax you if you do not purchase insurance. But they are not taking tax dollars to pay for medical procedures. Moron.   
   
No.. it doesn't actually cover state funded abortions (god forbid) and surely if they where legally being funded by tax dollars it would be like a revolving doors at planned parenthood for all those knocked up slut teens. Yep. Because that's reality.

FDR married his FIFTH cousin. That's fairly distant. I doubt any of you know anyone beyond 2nd or 3rd cousins.

Personally, I would **** my fifth cousin's brains out.

She's fine.

And past 3rd, it's not that close anyway. Sure, the tree won;t fork, but... oh, well.

Growing marijuana does not make you a dealer. At the time incest was not as looked down upon as it is now. Having consensual sex with a slave is not evil. A duel is not murder. Many people wanted Abe Lincoln dead. Being right beside someone meant no one could get away with killing him in his sleep. JFK had a crippling and painful disease and the amphetamines were his prescribed pain killers.
User avatar #30 - kindofcool (08/16/2012) [-]
Ok, in terms of Abraham Lincoln. Back during that time period, in hotels and inns if there weren't enough beds to accommodate the number of people staying, they would put multiple men in the same bed. This is not homosexual. It was a common practice and wasn't strange at the time because there was no stigma.
User avatar #61 to #30 - splatterfest (08/16/2012) [-]
The actual controversyis that by "sleeping" they mean he had intercourse. The "fact" is not proven.
#116 - iamphoenix (08/17/2012) [-]
Abe Lincoln sleeping in the same bed as another man doesn't make him gay. ******* a bloke in the ass would make him gay.

Because being gay is comparable to murder and racism.

How does sleeping in the same bad as a guy make you homosexual? If youve ever been broke in a motel six you'd sleep in the bed then on the floor.
