“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

An 8th Grader's Public Service Announcement

We have truly come a long way.  This would never have happened when I was in Junior High.  Are you kidding me?  My ass would have been beaten black and blue.

Eighth-grader Playahata646 and his little brother filmed this Public Service Announcement “Don’t Say Gay” for a school assignment.  This also would have been excellent post for my series, "The Joys of Being a Parent".  Kudos to you kid!

He says this on his YouTube page:
In 8th grade we had a PSA project. ( Public Service Announcement) Don't Say Gay. I chose a funny way to present it. Subscribe! And thanks to my little brother for being the star!

Death To Pennies

They cost more to make than they're worth, they waste people's time, they don't work as money, and because of inflation they're less valuable every year, making all the other problems worse.

U.S. Military bases around the world have already abolished the penny by rounding to the nearest dollar.  So why keep them?

From the same guy, CGPGrey who brought you Coffee: The Greatest Addiction Ever and Daylight Saving Time Explained, comes this great, informative video on why pennies should be abolished.  Check it out, it's pretty damn cool, and I agree with him.

Which Companies Are "For" and "Against" Merry Christmas?

Does it really matter?  I mean, are you going to stop shopping at Victoria's Secret, or any of the Gap stores, which are Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, Office Depot, or Staples, just because they are against saying, "Merry Christmas"

So let's see... you have those who are for Merry Christmas, those who are marginal, and those who are against it.  Which companies will you be shopping at this year?
