“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Mother of the Year X 2

Why have I bestowed Krista Tillman "Mother of the Year times 2"?  Because she understands what most ignorant people don't, that people are going to leave your cities.  And because she's a loving, doting mother to a son who happens to be gay.  But it isn't just the fact that she's an understanding mother.  She's a dean of a college in North Carolina, and knows what she's talking about.  If these REDs keep going to the extreme far right on their issues, they will never understand the economic impact that will hinder their states in the future.

You may think that Texas is a Republican state, but it's only Republican because we have all those small tiny towns all over the state who hate everyone who's not white.  Little do they know, people have been leaving their small towns and relocating to cities that are more accepting - like Houston, Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio.  Watch this short 3 minute video - it's good.

Laugh of the Day: Invisible Cell Phone

Oh Jack Vale.  He's at it again, and this time he's at Wal-Mart.  You may remember him getting punched in the face by a Target customer a while back.  And almost getting jumped by several women at another Target store.  This time he's pretending to be on the phone with his wife trying to convince her he's at Wal-Mart.  

I really didn't start laughing until the end, but it should bring a little humor to your day.
