“Plus Size” models–what a joke

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on September 9, 2009

Crystal Renn is the highest paid plus-size model out there. 

She is a size 12.

When did a size 12 become “plus-size” –that is something I would like to know.

I was watching Fox and Friends this morning and this gal was on, talking about her career, and her new book, and how plus-sized models were becoming more and more accepted. They are “back on the catwalk”. 

What catwalk is she talking about, exactly?

  Image comment: Crystal Renn is the highest paid plus-size model of our times
Image credits: 3.bp.blogspotCrystal Renn is the highest paid plus-size model of our times The image below has been resized. Click on it to enlarge.‘; document.getElementById(‘imgfgf’).style.display = ‘block’; this.width=810; }”>

Now, she is very beautiful, no doubt, but lets be very clear about something, size 12 is now considered plus-size.

Let that sink in. 

I used to think size 16-18 was plus size, didn’t you?  Let’s be honest, the term “plus-size” in itself has negative connotations.  I hear “plus-size” and I think “fat”.  It’s a knee jerk reaction as I have been conditioned by the media to think as such.  Havn’t you?

So, I currently am one size off from being “plus size” since I am a size 10.  Wow, just gonna let THAT one sink in!  Have you even been over to the plus-size section at the clothing store?  They consist of sizes 18 and up (and lots of size 22)..I know because I was looking at some cute clothes the other day, they were all to big, and then I looked up and saw that I was in the “Women’s” section.

Whitney Thompson First Plus Size America’s Next Top Model

 

The problem is our perceptions.  Above is a picture of  “America’s Next Top Model” winner.  She apparently is plus size too.  And supposedly a size 14 at a height of 5’10”.  36-32-43

whitney-thompson

Yep, she looks like she belongs in the “plus-sized” catagory to me too (rolls eyes).

What we really need is to change our perception of what is acceptable/achievable.  The MSM isn’t going to help us do that by printing photos of plus sized models as they are way to busy keeping us up to date on Brangelina

Is this really a “movement”?  Will magazines start to show size 12 girls on it’s covers in lieu of the immaciated pre-teens we are used to seeing?

Is the media just looking for a good story to up their numbers, and charge more money to their advertisers???

makes me wonder…..

How does that make you feel?  I don’t think it will make one iota of a difference in the MSM because magazines will put pics of this girl on their covers instead of the what is really out there. 

We simply prefer to look at  the unattainable on the covers of magazines.  It makes us feel better about ourselves…doesn’t it?  (rolls eyes)

Romans 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Shame on you, Miley Cyrus

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on August 18, 2009

Why are you selling out? 

I watched the so called “pole dance” on youtube, and while she indeed does get on a cart and hold onto a pole, it is hardly a dance.  What is so disturbing to me is that she is only 16 and her shorts barely cover her ass, they are skin tight, and leave little to the imagination. (not that I am trying to imagine anything of hers, but you know what I mean)  Her target audience, the audience that has financed her thus far, is typically, let’s say around 10 ish?  I know I have frequently seen little girls, as young as 7 wearing their “Hannah Montana” wigs around the mall. 

The first time I really ever paid any attention to her was when she showed up on the front of People magazine without her wig and hardly any makeup.  I thought, wow, she’s cute, I wonder why they make her wear that horrible wig?  I stumbled upon her show, watched for a few minutes, and found out why she wore the aforementioned wig.  Now, I see her all over the place, mainly in skin tight pants, and too much eyeliner. 

You know she has a stalker?  Yep, and he is 53.  Gross.

Because, dear Miley, not everyone who is your fan is a teeny-bopper.  Many less than desirable men are watching you as well.  And shame on her parents for not teaching her some self-respect, because she is showing off far more skin than is necessary to sing a song.  Don’t give me that crap about she is young and pretty and just having fun….train up a child in the way they should go….

Where is she going with this?  Is she trying to be sexy?  She’s not…

Is she trying to get attention?  That she is, and it won’t always be the attention she wants…but then again, negative attention is still attention (just ask my 4 yr old!)

What it comes down to is this…she is young and wants to morph into a more adult demographic.  Understandable..you can’t sing to the tweens forever, eventually you want to sing more adult-ish songs.  Does she need to be half-naked to do this?  Apparently, she does.  She wouldn’t have gotten anywhere near this much attention if she had worn something more conservative, would she? 

Girls are being brought up in a day and age in which dressing this way is normal and expected…just look at Britney Spears…and look where it landed her. 

Be careful, Miley, you are more than your image, and many, many (very) young girls are looking to you for the way they should act and dress. 

it makes me very sad to say the least…..

Commentary on our Governmental System

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on July 24, 2009

I received this in an email today, and thought I would post it for your enjoyment. 

545 vs 300,000,000
EVERY  CITIZEN NEEDS TO READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS JOURNALIST HAS  SCRIPTED IN THIS MESSAGE.  READ IT  AND THEN REALLY THINK ABOUT  OUR CURRENT POLITICAL DEBACLE.


Charley  Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.



545  PEOPLE
By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world  who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever  wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if  all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have  inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget.  The president does.

You and I don’t have the  Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of  Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress  does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You  and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve  Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one  president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human  beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally,  and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague  this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve  Board because that problem was created by the  Congress.  In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty  to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central  bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a  sound reason.. They have no legal authority.  They have no  ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one  cotton-picking

thing.  I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.  The  politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what  the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility  to determine  how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy  convincing you that what they did is not their fault.   They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What  separates a politician from a normal human being is an  excessive amount of gall.  No normal  human being would have the gall of a  Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating  deficits..  The president can only propose a budget.   He cannot force the Congress to accept  it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the  land, gives sole responsibility to the House of  Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes.  Who is the speaker of the House?   Nancy Pelosi.  She is  the leader of the majority party.  She and  fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want.  If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if  they agree  to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can  not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of  incompetence and irresponsibility.  I can’t think of a  single domestic problem  that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.  When you fully  grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal  government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to  exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it  unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in  the red ..

If the Army &Marines are in  IRAQ ,  it’s because they want them in IRAQ

If they do not  receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available  to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no  insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift  the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can  abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to  regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can  take this power.  Above all, do not let them con you into  the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the  economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing  what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they  alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the  power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the  people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the  gumption to manage their own employees.

We should vote all of  them out of office and clean up their mess!

Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel  Newspaper.

What you do with this article now that you have  read it………. Is up to you.

This might be funny if it weren’t so darned true.
Be sure to read all the way to the end:

      STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.  We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
 

What in the hell happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’
And I still have to ‘press 1’ for English!?

My note:  It is truley sad the state of our country.  So many don’t understand what is going on with healthcare and our budget, it is sad.  I was talking with my friend just yesterday and I mentioned “Universal Heathcare” and how it is going to screw our country and our doctors.  She said she didn’t know much about it, she has been to wrapped up in the up coming remodel of her house, and subsequent applying for a loan and refinance of her house to help pay for said remodel.

She has no idea because she is to caught up in everyday crap.  This vast majority of our country feel this exact way, otherwise, there would be rioting in the street.  Most of the “sheeple” are more concerned with who or what killed Micheal Jackson and who John (from John and Kate plus 8) is dating. 

Seriously, who cares?  I no longer watch MSM news…I have been sticking to Fox and the internet.  Good Morning America and The Today Show are a joke at best. 

We could replace all of these Senators and Representatives, but that would require action, and voting.  Both are sorely lacking in our country. 

(and then we would have to replace the replacements because they too would become corrupt, thanks to the massive amount of lobbyists)

Birth Control in an ear of corn? The wave of the future…

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on July 8, 2009

Well, we can thank Glenn Beck for clue-ing me in to this little tid-bit of information.  He was interviewing an author of a new book called “The Doomsday Key”.  The author talked about researching GMO foods and how he found out about a company, called Epicyte, which developed a line of GMO corn which renders males who eat it infertile.

Did you get that?  The men who ate the corn can no longer make sperm….no sperm, no babies. 

Check it out for yourselves…http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=563

A small California biotech company, Epicyte, in 2001 announced the development of genetically engineered corn which contained a spermicide which made the semen of men who ate it sterile. At the time Epicyte had a joint venture agreement to spread its technology with DuPont and Syngenta, two of the sponsors of the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault. Epicyte was since acquired by a North Carolina biotech company. Astonishing to learn was that Epicyte had developed its spermicidal GMO corn with research funds from the US Department of Agriculture, the same USDA which, despite worldwide opposition, continued to finance the development of Terminator technology, now held by Monsanto.

Ahhhh, our old friends Monsanto.  Did you watch the movie from the last post yet?  Wow, these guys are into everything…

The rest of the article is even scarier….read on….

In the 1990’s the UN’s World Health Organization launched a campaign to vaccinate millions of women in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines between the ages of 15 and 45, allegedly against Tentanus, a sickness arising from such things as stepping on a rusty nail. The vaccine was not given to men or boys, despite the fact they are presumably equally liable to step on rusty nails as women.

Because of that curious anomaly, Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization became suspicious and had vaccine samples tested. The tests revealed that the Tetanus vaccine being spread by the WHO only to women of child-bearing age contained human Chorionic Gonadotrophin or hCG, a natural hormone which when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier stimulated antibodies rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy. None of the women vaccinated were told.

It later came out that the Rockefeller Foundation along with the Rockefeller’s Population Council, the World Bank (home to CGIAR), and the United States’ National Institutes of Health had been involved in a 20-year-long project begun in 1972 to develop the concealed abortion vaccine with a tetanus carrier for WHO. In addition, the Government of Norway, the host to the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault, donated $41 million to develop the special abortive Tetanus vaccine.

I used to wonder why some peep’s, mainly homeschoolers and the like, refused to vaccinate their children.  Some think it causes Autism, which there is a lot of evidence, to say the least, of a connection, and some think vaccines are just unecessary in a society which has virtually eradicated most of the diseases we routinely vaccinate for.  Now, I find out our own government, along with the WHO (world health organization) had developed a vaccined to make a certain sect of women unable to carry a pregnancy to term. 

Utter Ridiculousness.

I think I may have to stop eating corn.  If this has been planted out in the open, and methinks it likely has, do we really think this corn was contained to only the test fields into which it was planted?  Do I look stupid to you?  No wonder we have a crazy amount of women on fertility drugs.  If this stuff is out there, and it is currently in some farmer’s field, reproducing and infecting other strains of corn, we have no way of knowing if we are eating it or not because our fantastic former president declaired GMO’s and regular food the same and therefore they don’t need to be labled as such. 

Think about how many things we eat that have corn, corn syrup, and high fructose corn syrup in them….

Hundreds of thousands of items….everything from your ketchup to your soft drinks to your yogurt and even your applesauce (unless your like me and get unsweetened applesauce). 

More to come on corn syrup and it’s chemical cousin high-fructose corn syrup…

I betcha can’t wait!!!

GMO’s–Genetically Modified Organisms–Frankenfood

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on June 22, 2009

Well, a good friend of mine sent me an email today about GMO’s and how they are the bane of society. 

I tend to agree with her. 

I understand the basic premise of altering our food’s genetic make-up for the better-ment of society, mainly by food becoming shelf stable for a long time…a really long time.  And because it looks fantastic…you don’t realize that tomato you are eating on your hamburger is acutally three weeks old.  It’s an atrocity.  How nutritious do you think that tomato is?  How long do you think it took to get to your local Micky D’s? 

We really have lost all touch with reality when it comes to our food.

GMO’s can currently be found in 95% of our corn supply, in our canola, soy and cotton.  All of these are marketed by a company called Monsanto, a multi-billion dollar pesticide and seed manufacturer. 

They own patents on seeds.  If they find their seed growing in your field because it blew in from another farmer’s field, or was dropped there by a passing bird, they will sue you.  Nice folks. 

Now, the powers that be, are getting ready to add wheat to the GMO list.  And then, whether you want to or not, you will be eating wheat created in a lab.  Kewl.  Really (rolls eyes).

Here is a really neat movie about our food system and how perverted it is courtesy of Monsanto and greed.  It’s long, about an hour and a half, but it’s eye opening. 

 http://www.hulu.com/watch/67878/the-future-of-food

(one of these days i will figure out how to imbed one of these video thingies)

I have watched about half of it, and it’s very disturbing, to say the least. 

I don’t know what else to say about it.  We have to change our diet, I have to change our diet.  I’m working on it. 

hmmm…i will be doing more research on this topic…it’s very interesting to me

It’s a question of ethics, really…

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on June 18, 2009

Let’s say you manage a store.  A grocery store.  You have many employees, and do a pretty good job of running it, so far.  One of your employees, Jerry,whom was hired by the former manager, tells you that one of your other employees, John, has stolen some apples. 

Well, you thank him, of course, and then, two days later, you fire Jerry. 

Without warning.

Without cause.

Jerry doesn’t understand because when he was hired, the store’s policy on firing is that you are given a reason for being fired and you are given a week to find a new job.  (It’s a pretty nice policy, one that you, when you were the meat manager, and a few other managers wrote up and asked to be put into the store’s handbook.)

What Jerry didn’t know is that you and John are best friends, and John actually went to bat for you when you applied for the “General Manager” position at the store.  He is a great friend and you are NOT going to let a little theft get in the way of that.

Now, of course YOU wouldn’t fire Jerry, right?  I mean, he did the RIGHT thing by telling you one of your employees was stealing, RIGHT? 

That was the correct and ethical thing to do, report someone stealing, letting the boss know what was going on under his nose because he is busy doing lots of other grocery related things.

Well….what if I told you our “wonderful” President Obama has done this very thing…just a few days ago.

The MSM (main stream media) isn’t covering it…they are too busy covering Hillary breaking her elbow and who’s “the world’s hottest bachelor.”

AmeriCorps attorney general Gerald Walpin was fired, without reason, for alerting President Obama that the mayor of Sacramento, Kevin Johnson, had basically stolen over $800,000 dollars of taxpayer money for car washes, among other things. 

What Walpin didn’t know is that Obama and Johnson are friends, and Johnson is a huge supporter of Obama. 

It must be nice to have friends in high places.  You can steal, lie and cheat, and still not loose your job. 

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,526650,00.html

Now, why should this matter to you and me?  Obama co-sponsored a bill, while he was still a Senator, that required Congress be given a 30 day notice AND justifiable reasons why an inspector general was to be fired.  Obama did none of these things.  Someone pissed him off, he fired him without notice AND after a few days came up with a the lame excuse that Walpin was “disheveled” at a meeting back in May. 

Whatever.

So, this means, Obama can and will do whatever he wants, despite the rules he himself passed into law.  Apparently the law doesn’t matter anymore.  This means very few people, if any, will dare to go up against our illustrious President, for fear of losing their job. 

Ridiculous. 

Utter Ridiculousness.

Rick Warren’s inaugural prayer and why I don’t like it

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on January 23, 2009

Almighty God, our father, everything we see and everything we can’t see exists because of you alone. It all comes form you, it all belongs to you, it all exists for your glory. History is your story. The Scripture tells us, ‘Hear, oh Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one’ and you are the compassionate and merciful one and you are loving to everyone you have made.

Now today we rejoice not only in America’s peaceful transfer of power for the 43rd time, we celebrate a hinge-point of history with the inauguration of our first African American president of the united states. We are so grateful to live in this land, a land of unequaled possibility, where a a son of an African Immigrant can rise to the highest level of our leadership. And we know today that Dr. King and a great cloud of witnesses are shouting in heaven.

Give to our new president, Barack Obama, the wisdom to lead us with humility, the courage to lead us with integrity, the compassion to lead us with generosity. Bless and protect him, his family, Vice President Biden, the Cabinet and every one of our freely elected leaders.

Help us, oh God, to remember that we are Americans. United not by race or religion or by blood, but to our commitment to freedom and justice for all. When we focus on ourselves, when we fight each other, when we forget you, forgive us.

When we presume that our greatness and our prosperity is ours alone, forgive us. when we fail to treat our fellow human beings and all the earth with the respect that they deserve, forgive us. And as we face these difficult days ahead, may we have a new birth of clarity in our aims, responsibility in our actions, humility in our approaches and civility in our attitudes—even when we differ.

Help us to share, to serve and to seek the common good of all. May all people of good will today join together to work for a more just, a more healthy and a more prosperous nation and a peaceful planet. And may we never forget that one day, all nations, all people will stand accountable before You. We now commit our new president and his wife Michelle and his daughters, Malia and Sasha, into your loving care.

I humbly ask this in the name of the one who changed my life—Yeshua, Esa, Jesus, Jesus—who taught us to pray:

Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be they name. They kingdom come, they will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

 

 

What’s wrong with this “prayer”…

well, Esa, also known to Muslims as Isa, is their version of Jesus.  There’s that whole idea of “Allah” simply being Arabic for God, but we know that they mean something very different when they say “Allah” from when we say “God”.

When they say “Isa”, they mean a person who will lead people to “Allah”, who will be subservient to Mohammad, and is very different from what we mean when we say “Jesus”.

This is what he said, and if he’s claiming Jesus to be the same as Islam’s “Isa”, this isn’t good.

 

Wikipedia:
Isa (Arabic script عيسى) is an Arabic name corresponding to Jesus in English. It is a common male given name for the Arabs and other Islamic peoples.

Arabic-speaking Muslims refer to Jesus as Isa, while Arabic-speaking Christians refer to Jesus as Yasu (Arabic script يسوع). Jesus is considered a prophet in Islam (see Islamic view of Jesus), and his name is used in these two forms in the Qur’an and Arabic versions of the Bible, respectively.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isa_(name)

Jesus in Islam (Arabic: عيسى‎ `Īsā) is a messenger of God who had been sent to guide the Children of Israel (banī isrā’īl) with a new scripture, the Injīl (gospel).[1]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_in_Islam

http://www.answering-islam.org/Responses/Abualrub/true-name-isa.htm

 

“Jesus – Hay-soos” doesn’t have the same cultural background as “Isa” does, nor is “Isa” simply a transliteration of “Iesous”, as Jesus is. Isa is a different word altogether, and has its own meaning, that being a false christ.

 

Islam expert Robert Spencer at JihadWatch.org, an organization dedicated to bringing public attention to jihad theology and defending Western society, criticized Warren for including a common refrain from Islam’s Quran – “You are the compassionate and merciful one.”.

“‘The compassionate, the merciful’ is, of course, a reference to the invocation at the beginning of every chapter of the Qur’an except one: Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim, ‘In the name of Allah, the compassionate, the merciful,'” Spencer writes. “Making sure everyone feels included – terrific. But the prayer indicates yet again that there is little general awareness of the reasons why the term ‘Judeo-Christian-Islamic values’ is a misnomer.”


Warren also included the foundational Jewish prayer Shema Yisrael, “Hear, O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one,” and the prayer beginning with the words “Our Father,” revered by Christians as the Lord’s Prayer.

 

“the future is not about secularism, it is religious pluralism.” Warren also called for interfaith projects to replace interfaith dialogue.
 
Jesus died on a cross, Isa did not.
 
Yes…he knew what he was saying, he knows who Isa is because he recently spoke at a muslim convention
 
Just wanted y’all to know this…warren is a type of false prophet…don’t buy into his purpose driven lies!!

Obama to Lift Ban on Overseas Abortion Funding

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on January 23, 2009

President Obama on Friday is expected to lift a ban on federal funding for groups that help provide abortions abroad, reversing a policy of his predecessor, George W. Bush.

Obama will sign the executive order one day after the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states.

The policy, known as the Mexico City policy, requires any non-governmental organization to agree before receiving U.S. funds that they will “neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations.”

The policy was first instituted by President Ronald Reagan in 1984 and continued by President George H.W. Bush. The policy was reversed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, and re-instated by President George W. Bush in 2001.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/first10 … n-funding/

 

So…not only is ok to kill our own children, but now it is ok to kill the children of the world!! 

How can he be a Christian, Christ follower, and put a stamp of aproval on two pieces of legislation that will indeed cause more abortions to happen???  The two do NOT go together.
