Some people are born with an unusual number of fingers, but gloves are made for people with five on each hand. Is that a form of "oppression," too?
If, as the left claims, gender is a societal construct, doesn't that mean that your gender is whatever society says it is? That means you are either a man or a woman, depending on what parts you were born with.

Bobby Jindal for President?

What do you think the standard for eligibility is? "Natural born citizen" is not defined in the constitution, but the most reasonable interpretation is "not naturalized citizens." All of the men listed have been American citizens since birth. Even if you reject that standard, the fact that the term isn't defined means that it must be given a broad definition, rather than a narrow one.

Jindal would make the best president of all the current contenders. Not only is he a solid conservative, including being anti-amnesty, he can defend and explain conservative principles articulately. He is a good campaigner, and smarter than Hillary Clinton. Anyone who can be a Rhodes Scholar without becoming a socialist should be taken seriously.

He isn't making a special pleading, just commenting as a layman. It is completely fair game to point out that the models have not been very accurate at predicting temperatures, and that the scientists are demonstrably overstating their ability to do so.
Jindal would be the best choice; he is pro-life, pro-gun, anti-amnesty, and is a solid conservative, all the way round. He also has the ability to explain and defend those positions, which puts him ahead of most Republicans. He is a Rhodes Scholar, and has an intellectual depth that puts him ahead of all the other candidates, and will be a serious threat to Hillary Clinton.
Walker is a terrific governor, but he is soft on immigration.

Jindal has that rare combination of being a both policy wonk and a gifted politician.
In the eyes of the world, Christianity is, and has always been, strange. It isn't just about habits and behaviour, but the entire outlook on life.
This news should not make Christians happy. A nation in which 3/4's of the population calls themselves "Christians" allows abortion on demand, gay marriage, and easy divorce. About half of all children are born out-of-wedlock. Pornography is a major industry. I could go on, but you get the point. America is not a country where Jesus comes first in most people's lives. The level of discipleship is simply abysmal.
