“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

When Will We Forget?

So based on the U.S. Census Bureau we tend to forget things that have happened in our lifetime at an alarming rate.  Or is that because more and more people are coming down with Alzheimer's?

While you may say, "I remember," that's pretty unlikely.  You probably remember reading about it, or learning about it in your high school history book, but do you actually remember being there at that specific time and place?

So by 2019, most of you will probably forget the Challenger Explosion, by 2027 you've forgotten about Lorena Bobbit, and by 2042, the first i-Phone.  Check out this list, it's pretty darn hilarious, but more than likely very true for most of us.

Isn't This The Truth? The Grndr You Wish You Had

Don't Lie.  You know this is the way you wished Grndr appeared on your i-Phone.

And there's many more to feast your eyes on here...

Quoted - Homeless Man Talking About the Day He Was Viciously Attacked

He attacked me. He just ripped me to ribbons. He chewed up my face. He plucked out my eyes. Basically that’s all there is to say about it. For a very short amount of time I thought he was a good guy. But he just went and turned berserk. He apparently didn’t have a good day at the Beach and he – he was coming back. And I guess he took it out, took it out on me or something.” –  Cannibal victim Ronald Poppo, in an interview with CBS Miami

I thought this was absolutely crazy when it happened, and I feel so bad for Mr. Poppo.  I truly hope you can find peace.  Our prayers are with you!

Traffic Sign: God Hates Gays!

You have to love the good citizens of America who know there are stupid people in this country, and most of the world for that matter.  This lovely video was posted on YouTube last week by a woman who was driving home one night.  Everything in my right mind was telling me this had to be in Texas, because we have millions of crazies in this 'once upon a time' very blue state.  But I was wrong, it's another state full of crazies - Utah.
When the Utah Department of Transportation, Provo Police Department, and Utah Highway Patrol were contacted last week, this is what they had to say...

“Employees of each bureau expressed shock upon hearing the news of the sign, in several cases saying it was the first they had heard of it. Eventually it was established that the sign was on the I-15 corridor. Utah Department of Transportation spokeswoman Mindy Nelson told Gay Salt Lake that signs are maintained by contractors who have the messages approved by UDOT. The sign was most likely changed by one of the contractor’s employees who thought he or she was playing a prank. ‘A very bad prank that is obviously unacceptable,’ she said. Inquires to UDOT regarding the contractor responsible for the sign, and the department’s response and investigation were not returned as of press time.”
