I like how she articulates the simple financial impossibility of religious organizations being able to replace government aid. I’d like to add that, of course, there are so many people who have trouble receiving aid from religious institutions because they’re LGBT and/or non-religious or have a fraught relationship to religion… aid is a human right—and, as she points out, a business subsidy as well as a subsidy to food companies—which people should be able to receive in a secular setting.
S/O to Rick Ross, Usher, and the BEAUTIFUL Tae Heckard in the “Touch-N-You” video
Over the past few years my love for music videos has died out. You can only watch so many videos of green screens, cars strategically placed, and half naked women gyrating in the background before you decide to redirect those brain cells you lose from the tomfoolery.
First, I’m ecstatic to see the theme of the video goes with the song! Second, what really blew me were the gorgeous shots of Tae Heckard (The director really did his thing)! I feel this video brought back some of the 90s sexy… what is that you asked? It’s that show enough to catch his/her eye without them seeing the color of your insides! (That’s kinda rare these days)
Did I mention I loved this song? … I LOVE THIS SONG!!!

In November of 1964, fearful of his connection to the Communist Party through Stanley Levison, the FBI anonymously sent Martin Luther King the following threatening letter, along with a cassette that contained the fruits of a 9 month surveillance project — allegedly…
Happy Women’s Day. :-)
My newest quote!
The Fuck yes!

I need that sweater in my life… even if it’s soon to be 100+ degrees outside
Gia Antoinette: 5’7”…Size 18… 250lbs
I have so many people commenting on my pics and sending me messages saying that they “wish they were me”, that I’m “lucky” or they “wish they had my body.” Truth is… it took me a really long time to love myself as well as my body and feel comfortable in my own skin. I’ve always been the “big one.” I used to compare myself to my friends or my ultra fit and athletic little sister and hate the fact that no matter what I did, I was never going to look like that. It would make me sad when I couldn’t do simple things like cross my legs while sitting in my desk at school because my thighs were too big. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the recipient of ridiculous comments that I honestly think people have convinced themselves are
complimentslike “you’re pretty for a big girl.” In my opinion, the underlying meaning in this statement is that although I’m exceptionally pretty, I still can’t be compared to regular population. lol. WTH. Can I not be pretty for the mere fact that I’m human and as humans, we’re all so flawed?
Anyway, back to the subject at hand, now that I’m older, I know that it doesn’t matter what I look like… the sexiest thing I can ever wear is CONFIDENCE accessorized with a SMILE and a BADASS WALK in some 6” heels. LOL.
This is why l seem lucky. I know who I am and how to work with what I have. This is America. How many people do YOU know that want to date a 5’7 250lbs woman, let alone BE her?
Because I Embrace “Me”… I know way too many to count.
Love yourself so you can show other people how to.
250 lbs of beauty. God, you the man.
