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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Politics 101: It's Not All About Iowa

I just love how all the news is focused on Iowa today, and will be for the next several days until New Hampshire.  But is it really that important?  Is it as important as the media and your neighbors make it out to be?  NO.  That's a big N-O to all you Republicans.  And Democrats for that matter.

You want to know when all of this started?  When Jimmy Carter won the Democratic caucuses in Iowa in 1976, and ever since then these candidates have been hoping for the same thing.  But I don't remember hearing of a President Huckabee, President Dole, President Gephardt, or President Harkin, do you?

Furthermore, Iowa does not reflect the rest of America.  When the total population of Iowa is 96% white, 2% black, 1% Asian and 1% Hispanic you do not resemble America.  Adding to the absurdity, you have 60% of that population being mega-religious and a majority of them over the age of 50 or 60.  And with only 30% of Iowans expected at these Caucuses, how is this a reflection of America?  There is no comparison.

So, while I'm sitting at home watching all this mess, I'll be laughing quietly, because whoever wins will probably never make it past 2012.  It's about the rest of the nation, people.  It's not about Iowa.  Why do you think all these other states are moving their caucuses and primaries up?  They want to feel important too.  Oh. And by the way there are 49 other states who also want to play a part in the democratic process.

Updated Resolutions For 2012

So let's take out our New Year's Resolutions list from 2009, and update it once again.  This pic is too hilarious, but oh so true.  This happens way to often. I especially love number 5, "be nicer to wife" in 2009, insert "try to" be nicer to wife in 2010, and insert "ex" wife in 2012.  LMAO.

Laugh of the Day: Death

It's time for your laugh of the day!!!

Imagine yourself standing in line at a store register.  You look up at the security monitor, and you think you've seen it, but you're not quite sure.  You look up again, and there he is.  Death staring right at you.  Omg, hilarious!

If The World Were A Village of 100 People: Issue No. 18 - Computers

Wow, I can't believe that I'm almost done with this series.  This is the 18th poster and 18th week out 20 that I've been posting them.

Every week I have been blogging about the posters designed by Toby Ng, where he took statistics based on the spread of the population in the world today and translated those statistics into a town of 100 people.  

So you'd ask yourself, "What if the world were a village of 100 people?" And these posters would answer that question in a much more simpler way.

In my humble opinion I think these posters would be a great educational tool.  Great to share with your kids or a classroom.

Our Future Is In Their Hands - Take 7

I'm over here LMAO, and I really shouldn't be.  But Jesus Christ, did he really have to slap his brother with an iPad?  Was that really necessary?  Granted, the boy who got slapped kept egging him on and on, but damn, when you watch this video you will see what I'm talking about.  Our future is in their hands, remember that. LOL.
