Roseanne: From Grab To Gab

Give me a break. Here's a wonderful example of how Hollywood is cannibalistic...not that you should be surprised.

Perhaps you missed the story. Roseanne in a post to her website expressed her opinions about how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie use their money and thinks that Angelina should make a choice on who to endorse in the Presidential race.

Roseanne writes, "Also Miss Jolie says she likes McCain too and hasn't decided who to endorse....huh? Aren't you supposed to be somewhat enlightened, or do you not know that the African daughter you hold in every picture had parents who suffered and died because of the Republican party's worldwide economic assault on Africa over the last few decades since Reagan?" she adds.

The only reason I'd even spend time on this post is to applaud this A-List Hollywood couple for at least being open to another candidates views. Typically, Hollywood clings to liberal issues and Democrat candidates. So, for major figures in Tinseltown to go on record and even consider a Republican candidate to me is nearly unheard of.

In case you are wondering, I feel that Senator Obama is little more than great spoken words in slick clothes. So many are ready for "change" and something "different" that they seem to be focused on a candidate who is young and African-American. Dismiss how wrong he'd be for the Oval Office.

Senator McCain wouldn't be my first choice for President either. However, given the choice, I'd rather have him than Obama.

Thanks Brad and Angelina for being open-minded. Roseanne, you've faded into oblivion ever since your horrible grabbing rendition of the National Anthem. Perhaps you should grab and gab less and focus more on helping those around you.

NEA Is Full Of It

"When did you become some political?"

That question is asked of me routinely by random friends in various wording. Fact is, five years ago, before moving from Mississippi to the DC Metro, the extent of my political expressions were limited to voting in elections. I didn't discuss or write about politics. Frankly, I rather despised politics. These days, it's impossible to be a conservative and not speak up while living near DC.

Limiting the amount of political sharing on my Facebook page is a daily goal. After all, no one wants to only hear about one genre from someone all the time. Sadly, there's a lot of material out there that most of us shield our eyes and ears to it or have it spoon-fed by the the media instead of researching and forming our own conclusions. At least two people have defriended me on Facebook and several more dropped off my Twitter feed as a result of my conservative views. Their loss.

Some things simply must be shared. Such as the recent even…

Risks Of Being Vulnerable

Being vulnerable can be so rewarding. It can also be horrifically disappointing. Stereotypically for guys, being vulnerable with thoughts and feelings is simply against a man's nature. It doesn't come naturally. Emotions are saved for when men are alone or to share only with spouses or best friends. I think of the Tom Hanks line from A League of Their Own: "There's no crying in baseball!" Anger seems to be permitted but not fear, worry, or tears. More often I've seen people apologize for getting upset or tearing up than for showing an angry or passionate reaction. 

The more reflective emotions seem to be reserved for women. It seems stereotypically more natural for women to be shedding tears or showing concern. Yet, too much or too frequent emotional displays can also bring scoffing or ridicule.

It's like there's no winning when it comes to being vulnerable. This is why being vulnerable is hard and requires intentionality. 

The reality is that being vuln…

Turtle Invaders Are Here!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrobotics, LLC for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's sad to think that some of you reading this have never heard of or played Space Invaders. Ah, the memories of playing that game at the mall arcade (something else long gone)! Sigh. Now, multiple game platforms exist and few games are more convenient than those playable via apps on your phone. With a wink at the classic Space Invaders approach, Turtle Invaders is a new app for younger children and children with special needs. I downloaded it and took it for a spin.
