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 - - - - - - - - - - -

I Voted Republican...

Everyone knows I didn't vote Republican this past November...

But had I voted I definitely wouldn't be wearing this shirt. Then again, maybe I should.

The 2012 re-election campaign of President Barack Obama was kicked off today.  And while many people have their doubts, there is no doubt in my mind that progress WAS made.

A lot more was done the past 3 years that wasn't done over the previous 30 or 40 combined, and I wouldn't let anyone tell me otherwise.  Well they can try, but it's pointless if they did.

Feel free to share this post with anyone, and remember, who we vote for matters.  Even if you're state is predominantly RED, it's our duty as Americans to take voting seriously, and help turn it BLUE.

Keeping It Old Skool - Issue No. 4 - Voltron

I didn't realize how much time had flown by.  I haven't posted a "Keeping It Old Skool" issue since mid-February.  Don't get me wrong, I've wanted to post one each week, but with all the current events and hot guys I had to get my priorities in order, LOL.

I was 13 years old when my mother bought me this amazing toy, I played with it for hours on end, and it was the coolest toy ever!  She had no idea what it was, she just wanted to make me happy.  The coolest thing about the toy was the fact that it was like the cartoon, but better!  So not only did I have the 2D version I saw on TV, but I had the real VOLTRON! In. My. Hands!  In the cartoon, Voltron was made up of five pilots who would command these five robot lions, which could be put together to form the greatest Robot of all time.  The five were in charge of protecting the planet Arus (ruled by Princess Allura) from the evil King Zarkon (from planet Doom), his son Lotor, and the witch Haggar, who would create huge Robeasts to terrorize the people of Arus.

According to Wikipedia
The original series was created by Peter Keefe in 1983 using material he had licensed from the Japanese cartoons Beast King GoLion and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV. The series was dubbed into English and edited, rewriting the scripts with reduced violence and the removal of Japanese cultural and location references.  A sequel to the original series, was made in the 1990s using computer generated imagery (CGI) techniques.


Ahhhh, the joys of 80's commercials! :-)  I don't remember what happened to my Voltron.  I think I may have dissected him, as investigating how things were made were a pastime favorite of mine.

President Obama's 2012 Re-election Campaign Begins

It's official, the Obama re-election campaign officially started Monday, April 04, 2011.

"This campaign is just kicking off. We're opening up offices, unpacking boxes, and starting a conversation with supporters like you to help shape our path to victory. 2012 begins now, and this is where you say you're in.

President Obama's re-election campaign had this to say:

The politics we believe in does not start with expensive TV ads or extravaganzas, but with you — with people organizing block-by-block, talking to neighbors, co-workers and friends.

And that kind of campaign takes time to build. So even though the race may not reach full speed for a year or more, the work of laying the foundation for our campaign must start today.

In the coming days, supporters like you will begin forging a new organization that we'll build together in cities and towns across the country. And we'll need you to help shape our plan as we create a campaign that's farther reaching, more focused, and more innovative than anything we've built before.

We'll start by doing something unprecedented: coordinating millions of one-on-one conversations between supporters across every single state, reconnecting old friends, inspiring new ones to join the cause, and readying ourselves for next year's fight.
