Forget Your Christianity and VOTE For What's Right!

BEFORE YOU READ THIS POST: I will say that these are my views and they may not match yours and that is OK.  Just be respectful in your comments or don't comment at all.

I am sick and tired of Christians and their self-righteousness.  From what I remember the bible says, 'judge not less you be judged.'  America has a long history of tearing Presidents and President-Elects to shreds if they as to so much smoked anything, lied about something, and cheated on their spouse.  Who are we to judge in the matter.  When looking into someones character for running an office, we can't lose sight of their the big picture.  I know some will read this and say WTF, but I don't give a hoot.  European countries have scandles all the time, but that does not stop them from voting or standing by a public official.  Why, in turn do we?  According to the Christian belief, we are all sinners.  We all have and are continuing to not live by the 10 Commandments.  All those who are overweight, OMG.  How many pastors and church members are overweight.  I know I am going on a tangent here, but I am just trying to prove a point.

I really think Americans consistently lose sight of the things that are right in front of their faces.  I am not a Cain supporter, but gosh darn it, he has to have a secret service staff now; just to continue to run for President.  I can't help but come up with reasons why people would want to make death threats.  Is it because he is black and his accuser(s) are white; or because he was married at the time of these suits or lack thereof.  If he did what they say and that was in the past, why can't the man be a successful President.  We all do our shit (I couldn't think of a better word, sorry) and then we live and learn and move on.  Remember Clinton?  I mean, was it necessary to impeach the man.  Many people liked him as the President, that matter with Monica was a marital one, not a political one.  I'm just saying.

Don't you hate the fact that for 5 years, you moved form job to job and finally in the 6th year, you find the perfect job.  What that employer will look at most, is the fact that you went from job to job and that employer just may not give you that chance.  OR, you had a bad patch in your life, but things are looking great.  Nowadays, you need to have a credit check to get a job, an apartment, a cell phone, and a house.  Your past is coming back to haunt you and for what.  We don't live in the past.  We make mistakes and learn from them.  Not many of us, repeat.

All of our behaviors are wrong, and it is up to you to change them.  We need to speak out more AGAINST, acts like all the ones mentioned.  If we don't, things are going to get worst.
I am speaking out with this blog post, and I dare you to do the same.  I am no longer your puppet, give me the damn string, and I will puppet my damn self.  I am in control of my thoughts, and I will think clearly about situations, without being influenced by politicians, the media, nor marketing giants.

Dakota Fanning's Ad Banned!

Marketing has long since evolved into pre-porn in my eyes.   SEX is all around you and it is pretty darn difficult to "turn a blind eye."  Walking the city streets, flicking through the pages of a magazine, or just looking at TV; you are sold cars, tools, food, and perfumes.  The banning of this ad tells me that those that appose it, are winning.  It may be a small win, but we are winning.  I can't tell you how many times, I have seen an ad that makes me say, HUH!  I think that is how its spelled. Now, according to the article below, Dakota Fanning is only 17.  I am sure her parents and agent and herself, think nothing of the photograph. BUT, I can think of a few places, other thank in between her legs, that damn bottle could have gone.  It is the little things that pique our interest.  It is sooo subtle that many of us don't realize its bearings.
