It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Margaret Thatcher's Long Lost Twin Sister Appears!

Nearly 30 years ago in 1982, the start of the Falklands War was on every Brit's mind.  The Iron Lady was in control and no one could topple her.  She became best friends with Ronald Reagan, and thus began the hatred her country grew towards her.  She was to Britain what Ronald Reagan was to us; helped the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.  Not to go off subject, but here long lost twin has been found.  Here she is,  >>>

and she hasn't aged one bit.  LOL, just kidding.

I swear, Meryl Streep as Thatcher is remarkable.  Filming for The Iron Lady started on January 31st, and this could very well be Streep's long overdue, third Oscar win. For the rest of the cast and what this movie is all about, you can go here and here.

Keith Olbermann to Gain Control of Current TV's Entire News Department

Keith Olbermann comes back with a bang.  Not only did he manage to come away with the launching of a new  prime-time show in late spring - he's going to be running the show.  I don't mean just his show, but the whole entire news department at CURRENT TV.
According to the Daily Beast,
"He can donate to any political candidates he wants. On a conference call with reporters, Gore said he considered such contributions to be part of his employees’ “freedom of speech,” and Olbermann said that “our obligation to the viewer is to disclose.”
Olbermannn says his new show will be a far better program than the one he had at MSNBC, “an improved and we hope amplified and stronger version of the show I just did.”

After reading a few news sources, they all indicated that MSNBC and Olbermann had agreed to not disparge each other for a limited time.  Olbermann says he will discuss the NBC debacle at a later date.  And something else I didn't know... CURRENT TV reaches only 60 million people, but that's slightly more households than MSNBC held when Olbermann debuted his show in 2003.  We can't forget that Olbermann turned MSNBC into what it is today.  And I have no doubt he will do the same for CURRENT TV.  Ryan and I will be sure to get on the bandwagon as soon as we possibly can.   Hell, I introduced Ryan into politics and Keith Olbermann.  Then when that woman, Rachel Madcow launched her own show (with Keith's help) he started watching her too.

Who Was That Caveman Looking Guy?

If you're asking who was the caveman-looking dude behind Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne Sunday night, that was none other, than Justin Bieber himself.  Yes, the Best Buy commercial which aired Sunday night featured Ozzy and Bieber pushing Best Buy's promise to buy back old technology when you purchase an upgrade.

They were dressed up in futuristic clothing, promoting 5G and 6G networks, neither of which are available today.  The premise was: that Best Buy is the "go to" place for all your electronic needs.

The punchline? Ozzy Ozbourne asking his wife Sharon, "What's a Bieber?"  and the scary guy coming up from behind, telling them, "I don't know, but he looks like a girl."

Both of which are based on actual events.  While Ozzy was being interviewed for a Latin program several weeks ago, he was asked a question on whether he listened to Justin Bieber, Ozzy responded by asking, "What's a Bieber?" LOL.

The latter being that he looks like a girl or a lesbian, both of which have gone viral over the internet, on radio and TV.

Watch the famous duo go at it...

Gay Ads That Matter - Issue No. 003

This is a powerful video and I believe that as adults, we need to be more active in the lives of our children and make more of an effort to allow our young people to be who they are. Our children reach out to us to teach and help them grow.  They need to be shown and told how much we love them no matter what their sexual orientation is.

As adults we need to act like one, and stop perpetuating hate, intolerance, and violence. When does it stop? It's no wonder why so many LBGT youth either run away, hurt themselves, or end their lives prematurely.

I wish to express my thanks for this video, and it's message.  It's time for the young people to hold their heads up high and say we won't be afraid any longer.

OMG Hilarious!

Cyanide & Happiness has really got me going this morning.  Today's most laughable comic is downright hilarious.

 My favorite part was when he shoved his hand down his friend's throat, LMAO!

"Mommy, What Do You Call What They're Doing?"

You're about to cook dinner, throw in a DVD you just purchased for your children at Toys "R" Us, and head to the kitchen.  Little Bobby comes running into the kitchen and asks, "Mommy, what do you call what they're doing?"  Bewildered, you scream at the top of your lungs and are shocked by what you find.  A couple having sex on your 52" plasma with surround sound.  Laughable, right?

Well... not so much for Candice Connor of Queens, New York.  The story didn't happen exactly as I described, but close enough.  According to the Daily News, her "jaw dropped when she and her two young boys sat down to watch the cartoon about the animal-loving Nickelodeon character and saw a nude couple having sex."  Instead of getting the "Nickelodeon All-Star Sports Day," she got a graphic video titled "Bubble Butt Bonanza No. 17."

So instead of contacting the Toys "R" Us store, what does Candice do?  Hires a lawyer.  Really?  A Lawyer? As if the kids wouldn't stumble across mommy having sexy with her husband, or maybe even come across some porn on the internet. I'm tired of people with their frivolous lawsuits; just take the movie back to the store, demand a refund and have the store figure out what went wrong. Just sayin'.
