Photo shoot with 5 year old daughter by photographer Jaime Moore ... moving beyond the Disney princess role model for our daughters
Jaime Moore celebrated her daughter’s 5th birthday w/a creative shoot. "I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess. It started me thinking about all the REAL women for my daughter to know about and look up too, REAL women who without ever meeting Emma have changed her life for the better." @Cori Padilla @Jackie Sheets

Twisting the Truth - Race Didn't Cost Abigail Fisher Her Spot at the University of Texas. Court records show her grade point average (3.59) and SAT scores (1180 out of 1600) were good but not great for the highly selective flagship university. As a result, university officials claim in court filings that even if Fisher received points for her race and every other personal achievement factor, the letter she received in the mail still would have said no.

Science fiction is an existential metaphor, that allows us to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said, “ Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today — but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all. "
“It is the obvious which is so difficult to see most of the time. People say 'It's as plain as the nose on your face.' But how much of the nose on your face can you see, unless someone holds a mirror up to you?” ― Isaac Asimov, I, Robot
Isaac Asimov as long been one of my favorite authors. His stories are classic and thought provoking. His non-fiction is educational and enlightening.

Not one to actually check facts before he starts a show, Rush Limbaugh performed another hilarious monologue about how Sandra Fluke must be a slut if she needs birth control. Also that women who get their contraception covered by insurance should be required to record and show sex tapes of themselves. Hahahaha!

Judge Napolitano: How to get fired from Fox in under 5 mins - The Mind Unleashed
Asking questions as Judge Andrew Napolitano did in a recent broadcast on his now cancelled daily show may very well be the reason behind his recent dismissal from Fox. Though specific details are hard to come by because the Judge has yet to give any interviews on the matter, it’s believed that his refusal to bow to commonly manufactured media narratives is among one of several key reasons he his no longer with the network. The following 5-Minute Speech that Got Napolitano Fired from Fox News is…
Super eloquent explanation of why the religious shouldn't be able to force their views on the people of a democracy.
