“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Movies to Watch: Margin Call

Wanna know what really happened on Wall Street over the 24-hour period during the early stages of the financial crisis?  Watch this trailer to Margin Call, and you'll be surprised.  Based on true stories and true events, the movie boasts actors such as Jeremy Irons, Zachary Quinto, Kevin Spacey, Penn Badgley, Stanley Tucci, Demi Moore.  Seriously, the list goes on and on with fabulous actors.
Earlier in the year, Ryan and I watched the HBO movie, Too Big To Fail, and it was exceptionally great.  It "tells the minute-by-minute, seat-of-the-pants story of how Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson (William Hurt) tries to wrangle the arrogant CEOs of the giant financial institutions into compromise in order to prevent worldwide depression." I can't say it any better than Linda Stasi here:
They cheat. They steal. They lie. They leave hardworking families homeless. They undermined the entire economy of the United States for their own personal greed. They don't go to jail and still get billions in bonuses. Who are they? They are the Wall Street SOBs who brought the US to its knees, that's who. Too bad to be true? No -- too bad to be fake.
I think Margin Call will be equally as good, really looking forward to it.  Check out the trailer here:

Isn't This The Truth? Redneck vs. Baby

LMAO, remember my Isn't This The Truth post from a couple of weeks ago, Zombie vs. Baby?  If you do or don't, it doesn't matter; You will definitely get a kick out of this one.  

This time it's the Redneck characteristics that are found in babies you never knew existed.

LOL, Isn't This The Truth?

The Creation of the Stormtrooper Helmet

This is pretty cool... well if you're a Star Wars fan it's really, really cool!  

Take a break and watch this fascinating video below.  

Andrew Ainsworth, the creator of the original Stormtrooper helmet, filmed himself making one from start to finish.  I thoroughly enjoyed the video, and I think you will too.

Kid Tested, Parent Approved

Absolutely fabulous! I love this kid...

A young boy with two dads sent a letter to General Mills informing them of their cereal, and rightly so. :-)  What if you don't have a mommy?

Are People Really This Stupid?

OMG, talk about my most annoying post ever!  Better yet, the most dumbest, stupidest post ever.  In the video below, a guy named Stephen goes on a tirade when a tattooist tries to ink him.  

The kid wanted a tattoo for his 18th birthday, but as soon as the tattooist continues his work, the boy starts screaming and yelling, telling the tattooist his hands are dirty; That he (the tattooist) is dirty, and tells him he doesn't like being touched.  Keep in mind, he's been there 3 hours already.  

When the tattooist starts to ink him again, he starts to scream off his lungs telling the tattooist that he's a freaking weirdo for touching him.  Towards the end of the video, he storms out and yells at his friend, "and Your'e Gay!"

Are people really this stupid?  Seriously?
