Thoughts on everything from Politics to Video Games

Sorry, Cheryl, I love Brad Pitt…

That headline certainly got your attention, didn’t it? So, let me explain…

Brad Pitt just gave $100,000 to Californians Against Eliminating Basic Rights — a group who is fighting the anti-gay Proposition 8 in California. According to the People.com article , the man of dreams said, “Because no one has the right to deny another their life even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn’t harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8.

Be still my heart.

Of course some anti-human being group made a statement that Brad Pitt isn’t an example of a good marriage, but those people are just haters. He seems like a pretty darn good family man to me. He supports Angelina, he’s a good father and he puts his money where his heart and mouth are. Sounds like an upstanding young man to me. (The fact that he’s hunky is just a bonus.)

If you live in California, please vote against Proposition 8. Our country was built on freedom not discrimination — actually, that isn’t true. Our country was built that white male landowners were free, but times have changed.

God Bless

PS. Dear Angelina, you don’t have to worry. I’m sure Brad and I will probably never meet and I’ll never have the chance to sweep him off his feet. 🙂 Although, I’m sure this old, overweight lesbian probably could. 😀

Let Them Fail…

I believe that when things go bad, you pull yourself up by your boot straps and you take care of it yourself. For the most part (if I ignore my twenties), I’ve followed this my whole life. Even while I was still in college and hadn’t completed my degree, I worked to pay off my student loans.

Now, I’m sorry the people who work for these financial companies are going to lose their jobs, but let the companies fail. By bailing out AIG, we’re sending the wrong message to companies. Take big risks and if you’re large enough, the government will bail you out so you don’t lose your shirt. Well, maybe, they should lose their shirts. The government wouldn’t be bailing me out if I overextended on my credit cards, took out a second mortgage on my house (that’s what an equity line is no matter what they tell you) and racked up huge bills. No one would be walking around to hand me money, so why should my tax dollars be used to bail out a company that put too much money into subprime mortgages?

When are we going to say enough is enough?

God Bless
