Is LGBT eligible for children under the age of 19?

Dab8er

I think not. Being this young and being able to make this types of choices that could affect your life in the long run, and not for the better. Children got through things like puberty that implement mood swings and voluntary reactions to different questions. A kid might feel a certain way one day and feel the exact opposite on another. So seeing them make choices like this as kids is hard. I recommend they should thing about it over the years to get an answer that you they have approved and...

Secondly, google documents are not a conduct violation, you could just as easily as I can star...

Donald Trump is better than Hillary Clinton

TheDonaldIsDaddy
TOCOneBid

Donald J. Trump would be the best candidate for America in the election cycle of 2016. Mr. Trump is the only main party candidate to support American interests over the interests of foreign countries. This nationalism has historically made America project more power, and helps American citizens affected by jobs being moved out of country due to high taxes created by Democrats and Republicans. The mainline politicians of...

Tax Credit- a deduction on your taxes. Subsidy-...
