Fairness for all AmericansBill Chatigny http://www.newburyportnews.com/opinion/x514651916/Fairness-for-all-AmericansFairness for all Americans3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We constantly hear Republicans talk about religion, patriotism, family values, socialism, class warfare and redistribution of wealth. They'll say that 47 percent of Americans pay zero taxes, but they won't say the middle class pays 61 percent of the federal budget, the poor pay 18 percent, and the wealthiest only pay 20 percent. They also won't mention the sales, property, state, gas and excise taxes we pay. Those get raised when the wealthy and mega-corps aren't paying on the federal level. When the feds aren't helping the states, taxes get raised locally, which places an unfair burden on the middle class and poor.
Republicans talk about cutting more taxes for corporations but never talk about those making billions in profit while paying zero taxes. Why? Because 83 of those top 100 corporations have paid zero taxes almost every year since 2004. In 2009 alone, the top 100 made $443 bil
Tiny Rant. . . . .I'm so sick of hearing about this issue of abortion. It's needlessly complicated. The way I look at it is this: If you don't approve of abortion, then don't have one.Tiny Rant. . . . .3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I honestly try to look at the arguments from the pro-life point of view, but none of them make any sense to me.
What if the aborted fetus could have cured cancer? What if the aborted fetus could have become a serial killer?
Life begins at conception, and abortion is murder. If so, then why aren't you out there screaming about fertilized eggs used for in vitro fertilization being thrown away is murder?
It's dangerous! Abortion done right has a higher survival rate than going through with a pregnancy does, and making abortion illegal would only force women to undergo even more dangerous procedures.
I'm just sick of it. So here's my advice, because I'm cranky.
Stop being arrogant. Stop telling people how they should live their lives up to YOUR standards. Stop prea

What must any of us do before we can understand what we read in the Book of Life? When is one ready to write upon its pages his or her own contributions?
Life is no passive gathering of information. It is not a spectator sport. Only in participation is one truly alive. In order to express feelings or opinions about anything in life, one must have a personal experience of it. Only personal experience conveys the qualification and the right to speak, to write or to create art as explanation and explication of any topic of discussion and debate.
resex - reset the way you think about sex"When an attractive woman walks on by and she has the power to raise desire in you it's almost like she's taking away something from you. I don’t know what exactly, maybe a little piece of your self-esteem or your pride or your confidence or your honor or your status. And in order to get it back it’s your task to get her to have sex with you.”resex - reset the way you think about sex6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Nobody ever said that to me – and they didn’t have to. Because when we started to talk about sex and women as young men it seemed to be everywhere in between the lines: When you’re attracted to somebody they take away your power and to get your power back you have to conquer them. It seemed to be what everybody was thinking without thinking about it. I guess it also works the other way around (with women desiring men), but it seems men are especially prone to this way of thinking.
Well, it’s one way to live your life. But I’ve made a conscious decision right there and then to look at it differently,
GOP Nostalgia is a Symptom of PrivilegePosted on January 23, 2012 by Christian Piatt on patheos. com http://www.patheos.com/blogs/christianpiatt/2012/01/gop-nostalgia-is-a-symptom-of-privilege/GOP Nostalgia is a Symptom of Privilege3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There’s an awful lot of talk in the political forum lately about restoring America to some nostalgic state of yesteryear, when supposedly everything was better. If we could only get back there, everything would be all right again.
I guess that depends on who you ask, doesn’t it?
Author Melissa Harris-Perry recently appeared on “The Colbert Report” to speak about her new book, “Sister Citizen,” which examines a number of stereotypes of African-American women. As he often does, Colbert teed up a common conservative talking point about “going back to he good old days.” Perry’s response kept ringing in my head for days afterward.
She said that there is no time in American History you would want to go back to as a black girl.
The point is simple but compe

The Lion King! - Newly Found Stories.Hello allThe Lion King! - Newly Found Stories.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So i have found short Lion King stories, i don't know if any of you would really be interested as they don't feature any new characters, but i thought you would all maybe like to know.
I found it, when i was Christmas shopping! A Disney book, so obviously i just had to have a look at it. It's called the 365 Bedtime Stories " one magical story for every night of the year" I was like Hummm..... perhaps a bit to babyish for you, but i still had a look though at the stories to see what they had and i glanced through and saw they had the lion king & beauty and the beast. Tempting further, so i read the first page i found with a lion king story on, it was called Scaredy Cats witch followed on from when Muffasa had finished his talk with Simba after the Hyena situation on how he was also scared. SO now i was convinced, if its cheep. Im going to be the big baby i am and buy it! & it was only £3.99. So i got it LOL
so there are 12 short Lion King stories in thi

Michael Scheuer: America Creates Its Own EnemiesAmericans are in the crosshairs of terrorists worldwide purely due to Washington's policy in the Muslim world, not because there is an Islamic enemy whose only aim is to kill Americans for their freedoms and lifestyle, insists a former CIA officer. Historian Michael Scheuer, an author of "Through our enemies' eyes", who worked for the agency for over 20 years till 2004 and at one time was the chief of the CIA's 'Bin Laden unit', says America's greatest enemy -- radical Islam -- never existed: neither when Bin Laden was alive, nor now.Michael Scheuer: America Creates Its Own Enemies1 year ago in Personal More Like This

It's late here, dammit. But I'm excited! And listening to music.

I can't remember. I'm half asleep. And already listening to Holiday music. I love Holiday music.
It's very calming music to me.

Callling UK People: PROBLEM!!!Ok, I will break this down easily -Callling UK People: PROBLEM!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, I recieved an email about a week or so, ago, from a website called 'Acess Now', where I signed a petition again ACTA.
The email was called: 'We won again!' -
It was speaking of how all our hard work petitioning had payed off (I would post the whole thing up here, but I have a feeling that no one's going to read through the whole thing. So, if any one wants to, I'll post it up here, just let me know in the comments secetion.)
However, I just looked on the BBC news website and found an artical:
'Email and web use 'to be monitored' under new laws' -
Yes, you heard!
It bascially talks about a what we have been fighting against!
The beginning of the artical says:
'The government will be able to monitor the calls, emails, texts and website visits of everyone in the UK under new legislation set to be announced soon.'
Here is a few paragraphes from it:

*twiddles thumbs* BIG HUGE BLOCK OF TEXTUh, I found my old copy of one of my favorite movies of all time, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and tried to look it up and realized just how many people keep giving it a hard time, so I'm just going to sit here and gush about a great, underrated remake that was kind of unfairly judged in my opinion. If you hate it, fine I respect your opinion, but I hope I at least convince people who were on the fence about it being good or not, and at least get you to see it from the point of view of someone who likes it. Everyone has different opinions and likes different things and that's what makes this world so great. And so I don't alienate people looking for a review of this (although why you're looking to me, a person with admittedly absolutely dreadful taste in movies and no prior reviewing experience is baffling) I'm going to refrain from swearing at all!

Adam's Ask Me Questions #3Q: Inanimate insanity was originally a contestant vote but only paper and baseball were the only ones who were voted in the contestant vote. So my question is what was the original inanimate insanity elimination order? (by contestant vote) ~ Wakeless2Adam's Ask Me Questions #31 year ago in Personal More Like This
A: Honestly, I don't really remember the old elimination order. I do remember the final four were Nickel, Balloon, Salt and Knife. I believe Salt and Knife won in alternate versions, but obviously that never even came close to happening. Salt was originally a more fleshed out character, but she's turned into nearly a joke lately. But don't worry, more Salt action is coming!
Q: What advice would you give to someone who wants to learn how to animate or is just starting and the second question is, In the BETA season 2, did you have any scenes animated or a full script and character body's for the scrapped characters? If so, could you maybe upload or show us somehow? ~ Jay28Jay2
