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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Must Watch - Must Read: President Josiah Bartlet on Homosexuality

Ryan and I are currently watching one of the greatest shows ever to air on network television, The West Wing

Last night, we had the pleasure of watching our new favorite episode to date, titled "The Midterms". It's memorable because of what President Josiah Bartlet told a Dr. Schlessinger character aka Dr. Jacobs.  

She was told by the President, "I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination."  And she responded, "I don’t say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does."

The President's reply was absolutely awesome, and astounding.  Check out the small script below, better yet, watch the video I attached.

President Josiah Bartlet: [addressing a radio personality party in the White House, entering room to applause] Thank you. Thank you very much. Thanks a lot. I wish I could spend more than a few minutes with you, but the polls don’t close in the east for another hour, and there are plenty of election results still left to falsify.
[everyone laughs]

President Josiah Bartlet: I’m sorry. Uh, you’re Dr. Jenna Jacobs, right?
Dr. Jenna Jacobs:
Yes, Sir.
President Josiah Bartlet: It’s good to have you here.
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: Thank you.
President Josiah Bartlet: The awesome impact of the airwaves and how that translates into the furthering of our national discussions, but also obviously how it can… Forgive me, Dr. Jacobs. Are you an M.D.?
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: A Ph.D.
President Josiah Bartlet: A Ph.D.
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: Yes, Sir.
President Josiah Bartlet: In psychology?
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: No, Sir.
President Josiah Bartlet: Theology?
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: No.
President Josiah Bartlet: Social work?
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: I have a Ph.D. in English literature.
President Josiah Bartlet: I’m asking ‘cause on your show, people call in for advice and you go by the name Dr. Jacobs on your show, and I didn’t know if maybe your listeners were confused by that and assumed you had advanced training in psychology, theology or health care.
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: I don’t believe they are confused. No, Sir.
President Josiah Bartlet:Good. I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination.
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: I don’t say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does.
President Josiah Bartlet: Yes, it does. Leviticus.
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: 18:22.
President Josiah Bartlet: Chapter and verse. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while I had you here. I’m interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She’s a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or is it okay to call the police? Here’s one that’s really important ‘cause we’ve got a lot of sports fans in this town: Touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: While you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits.

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 33 - He's Baaaaack!

How many of you remember this dog from back in September?  He balanced 36 treats on his nose, and I was sure he had me beat on Jenga.

Well the pooch is back with a whole new balancing act.  It seems the earlier video was just his warm up.  This time he's not holding back.  He does it upside down, while lying on his back!

What a Hot Mess: Monopoly Game Turns Deadly

OMG, if I was to name the number of times I played this game and wanted to rob my opponent, you'd think I was the 1%.  LOL. 

I remember this game being so competitive when I played it with my sister, friends or family.  We'd scream and yell at each other, because we wanted certain properties and couldn't get them.  All I wanted was the Railroads dammit!  And I didn't want to pass 'Go" and head straight to jail!

But not for Laura Chavez, she was sent to the slammer last Wednesday night for stabbing her boyfriend, Clyde "Butch" Smith with a kitchen knife.   She told the cops, "Yes, I fucked him up."  LOL. What a hot mess!

The woman's grandson who was playing with Chavez before the incident happened, told the officers that his grandmother had started arguing with Smith, because she felt "he was cheating at Monopoly."  The boy didn't witness the stabbing, because he was in bed.

But if you're a fan of the game, you would know that said cheating would likely involve either a) collecting $200 before passing “Go”; b) nipping some gold $100 bills from the bank; or c) landing on Baltic Avenue, but palming the Boardwalk property card.
And you'd think this was the only incident.  Hell No.  This has happened to other people.  According to following article:
This Monopoly-inspired attack is not the first incident of board game rage. In September, a Florida man allegedly choked his wife over a game of Yahtzee, and in 2009 a Michigan man went to jail for assaulting his Monopoly foe when she would not give up Park Place and the Boardwalk.
