“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.

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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Blake Skjellerup Covers The Gay Times

Ryan, why don't we have subscription to this magazine?  Out Olympian skater, Blake Skjellerup graciously covers the Gay Times.  Yum.

In the magazine, the New Zealand skater discusses how he overcame the negatives in life and his concern for Russia's stand on gay rights as the host for the upcoming Winter Olympics.  

Oh, and he needs sponsors.  But I don't think he'll have a problem with those.  Lol.

Things We Can Do To Save The Environment - Issue No. 21 - Cozy Up To Your Water Heater

Our water heater is in the garage, so I'm assuming it's warm to touch, because the garage is hot to begin with.  But I suppose it doesn't hurt to look into it...  Giving credit to TIME,  I'd like to thank them for showing us the many ways we can help save the environment.  Just one person can make a difference, and it starts with YOU!

21. Cozy Up To Your Water Heater

Improving your home's efficiency doesn't have to mean hours in the attic tearing out the insulation. It might be as simple as giving your dear old water heater a warm hug. Wrapping your heater in an insulated blanket—one costs about $10 to $20 at home centers—could save your household about 250 lbs. in CO2 emissions annually. Most water heaters more than five years old are constantly losing heat and wasting energy because they lack internal insulation. If the surface feels warm to the touch, get your heater an extra blankie. You'll both feel better.

Make sure to follow Blade 7184 every Tuesday for a new issue of Things We Can Do To Save The Environment.  Each issue is thought-provoking, informative and may hold the key to saving your children and grand-children's future.  Please feel free to click on my logo to read previous issues.

Don't Mess With Texas: Report A Litterer

If there is one thing I have been guilty of, it's littering.  Yes, I will confess.  When I was in my twenties and early thirties I threw my cigarette butts out the window after I was done smoking.  Fortunately for me, this all stopped when a passenger threw out a Snicker's bar wrapper out my window and we ended up getting a $250 ticket for it.

But today, I will report your ass!  Yep, the most envied state in the union has given me the opportunity to report you!  And I say this now, because as I was driving my brand new car home after work one day, an idiot (me in past life), threw a cigarette butt out his window and it landed on my hood.  I was not a very happy camper.  I was furious.

Click on the image above and follow the instructions.

Here's what to do

So what can you do when you see trash blowing in the wind and eventually landing on the side of our highways? Instead of delivering your own method of justice, we suggest turning the litterer in through the Texas Department of Transportation’s Report a Litterer Program. It’s an anonymous way to gently remind litterbugs they Don’t mess with Texas.

1. Keep all hands in the vehicle and take some notes

When you see litter thrown or flying out of a vehicle, intentionally or accidentally, take down the following information—license plate number, make and color of vehicle, date and time, location, who tossed the litter, and what was tossed. Be as accurate as possible and submit:

Which Birth Dates Are Most Common?

I'm going to assume Fall and early Winter are the best times to conceive a child, wouldn't you say?

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 37 - Dunkin Donuts Tirade [NSFW]

Excuse my French, but this bitch is crazy.  She didn't get a receipt and demanded her order be free.  Okay, sure Dunkin' Donuts will honor the request, but I wouldn't have given it to a nut-job like this.  Then again, she probably would've returned with an AK-47 and shot everyone.  Oh, and she made sure to let everyone know it was going on Facebook and the internet.  It's true, her stupid ass is all over the internet for everyone to see and laugh at.  Geez.... are people really this stupid?  The video is full of explicit language and racial epithets. You've been warned.  It is NSFW.
