10 Natives Who Should Replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 Bill - ICTMN.com
10 Native American leaders who should replace Andrew Jackson on the bill — as sacrilegious as it may be to denigrate a dead POTUS, we'll have a more authentic US history if we admit to ourselves Jackson was to indigenous people what Hitler was to European Jews. He enacted nothing short of a holocaust.

Perception is powerful. What you see is what you believe. But is what you see who you really are? (from Mirror Mirror) You need to find the true you, and that truth will set you free.
Advertising in teen magazines and on television typically glamorizes skinny models who do not resemble the average woman. In fact, today's models generally weight 23% less then the average woman. Considering the average person in the United States sees approximately 3,000 ads in magazines, billboards, and television every day, teenagers are getting the wrong message about body image much too often. God thinks we are all beautiful. He is the one who loves the inside and the outside of us. We were all His idea, and we are physically and emotionally beautiful to Him. "Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear; Forget your people and your father's house. The king is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for He is your Lord." -Psalm 45:10-11 Enthralled by your beauty. That means captivated, smitten, fascinated, spellbound, and delighted. That's exactly how the prince feels about the princess in fairy tales. But this sentiment is not fiction. Enthralled is how God in heaven feels about you. He is taken with you. Undistracted. Intensely interested. Emotionally connected. He enjoys your laughter and takes pleasure in the way you think. He is not bored with you, and He would never consider you ordinary. There is no way you will ever go unnoticed with God. You are beautiful to Him. Incredibly, breathtakingly beautiful. When a man feels this way about a woman, we say he is in love.

Mexicans respond mockingly to Time Magazine cover story

Enrique Pena Nieto. Mocking Time Magazine cover.
Time’s Peña Nieto ‘Saving Mexico’ Cover Sparks Confusion, Outrage Mexicans respond mockingly to ridiculous Time Magazine cover story Under the banner of “Saving Mexico,” Time Magazine has put Enrique Peña Nieto on the cover of its February 24 international edition. Many who first saw the cover this morning responded with, “Is this a joke?” When people realized it wasn’t, it unleashed a backlash in Mexico and from Mexicans throughout the world toward Time and the cover story’s author, Michael Crowley. “It’s the hot new emerging market. But can President Peña Nieto and his team of reformers really turn their country around?”, asks Time. The answer: not with Peña Nieto. And definitely not by further liberalizing Mexico’s natural resources. The “Mexico Moment” meme is old and tired. Pushing Mexico as the “hot new emerging market” confirms what many predicted would happen with Peña Nieto’s privatization of PEMEX: The foreign press would shower EPN with accolades, create a bubble, cash in and then wait for the economic crisis to hit in order to buy even more of Mexico at a lower price. The Mexican people, however, have lived through one too many Mexico Moments are now wise to this game. Here are some of the best “portadas verdaderas” that we’ve seen in response to Time’s cover. The bottom image of the autodefensa grandmother holding a rifle is, we feel, the most accurate response of them all. Mexico’s people are saving themselves! Stay Connected: Twitter | Facebook
