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!

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)

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.

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. 

I truly don’t understand…..he is obviously not a real Christian…in name only but not in actions.

Pregnant “Man” makes me sad…

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on November 19, 2008

So, I am watching 20/20, which I hardly ever do anymore…they used to have really great reporting, great stories that were worth watching;  now they seem to do what most tv news/msm seem to do…report on the sensationalism of the week so their sponsors can make money (in this economy?  yeah, right!)  But I digress…

The only story was on the pregnant “man”.  It was an hour long Barbara Walters speacial.  Now, I think she is a good reporter, but somewhat boring as of late…I would like to see better questions…again, I digress…The thing that makes me sad is that, yes…legally he is a man.  Biologically, “he” is a “she” because “he” still has a uterus.  He and his wife are legally married as well, but she is not gay/lesbian (not sure how that works).  They have a 5 month old daughter and are currently expecting again.  They live a “normal” life…the wife even breastfeeds the baby (ya gotta admit, that’s pretty kewl). 

As always with these “news” shows, they have other “experts” they interview for soundbites, and for extra fodder that will support whatever bias they are trying to report.  The one guest was a midwife, who exclusively serves gay/lesbian/transgender couples, helps them concieve and give birth, with her delivering (I guess).  She says that mother and father are “social terms” and…..WHAT!!!!  I’m not sure I remember what she said next because I was bitching at the tv…wait, I can rewind my tv…damn, ya gotta love that DVR! 

oh, wait, someone else said that mother and father were social terms and that as long as one was called mother or father that is all that matters. (oiy, my aching head)

“The face of family is changing.  It has been changing for a long time and each time that something pushes the edge of that family our society at first tends to think it’s wrong wheather that was people having interracial babies, or weather that was single mothers by choice, or that was gay or lesbian families, the same is true for transgender families.”  the midwife said this…

Ok, while I have no problem with interaccial babies (I mean they are beautiful, aren’t they…I remember when jungle fever came out and couldn’t figure out what the big deal was..I mean if they liked each other what was wrong with them dating….way off subject), I do have a problem with single moms who CHOOSE to have a baby without a husband.  We were created to be our husband’s helpmeet, we are the walls, he is the roof, and Jesus is the foundation.  I HAVE to have a problem with gays having famiies because it goes against my core beliefs…that being said…they do make wonderful parents and I don’t begrudge them at all for adopting.  I will not judge them because that is not my job, it’s God’s job. 

Now, God did give us some wonderful technology and fabuously smart people on this planet to make life better for us and to (hopefully) draw us closer to Him.  I cannot imagine His plan for us being that we would turn to our own kind to make families and reproduce in such a way as this couple has chosen.  I mean…she is with another woman…right???  I dunno, it makes me sad…in so many ways. 

Leviticus 18:22 is translated: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”  Remember the story of the Sodom and Gomorrah?  Ya know the one..two Angels came to visit Lot and the men, old and young, came to surround his house and called out to him that he would let the men (Angels) out so they could “know” them.  (Genesis 19)  Ya, that story…remember what happened to those two cities…yeah, ya do, they were destroyed for their sin (terrible sin at that!)

so…we know how Yahweh feels about that…

Thomas Beatie is not the first pregnant “man”. 

“Most transgender men who choose to be pregnant are simply choosing to make a family”  Sorry, they may look like a “normal” family, but they are in direct opposition to God and his commands.  I know…I’m a rotten sinner as well…all I can say is I do my very best everyday to walk the path….they are not walking the path or even trying to walk the path…they are digging up the path and directing it to an alternate destination. 

35-40 have already done this.  More sadness.

“He had the capacity to have a baby.  That didn’t invalidate him being a man”

Ok…huh?  All throughout the Bible and throughout the history of the world, woman have always given birth to children….Methinks this most certainly invalidates him as a man….most certainly…if he has a uterus and had a vaginal birth (he did), then he is a woman in my book…legally is another matter.  I am thinking if I were up in Heaven with God and Jesus, they would agree with me that “he” is a “she”, wouldn’t you???  Just because she looks like a man doesn’t make her a man irregardless of the fact that the government agrees and says she is a man.

I dunno…I have never wanted to be a man, so I don’t know what that feels like.  I do know that we have a choice in this life.  We can either choose to live the way God made us, or we can radically alter what he has made us to be and then live according to our own selfish desires.  I have watched these shows before with transgenders and gays and they say they have always felt this way, they never felt right.  I feel very sorry for them and cannot imagine life like that.  I know many commit suicide, abuse themselves and others, turn to drugs and other things. 

It’s her choice to become a “man” and get married and have kids, but it still makes me sad that as a society we now give this type of story prime time coverage.  This is the way things are made acceptable to us…just like the midwife said…one day this will be “normal”.

That will be a sad day indeed.
