Glenn Beck Thinks Sarah Palin should "Get Back in the Kitchen"

While I don't agree with Sarah Palin's politics, sexism is never okay. Glenn Beck discussed his disdain for running on a Palin-Beck ticket on his radio show, after talking about how she hasn't ruled out running with him in 2012.

Here's an excerpt:
"So while she's considering it...I just want her to know, I'm ruling it out. A Palin-Beck ticket, I'm absolutely ruling it out. I'm just saying, Beck Palin, I'll consider. But Palin-Beck --can you imagine what an administration with the two of us would be like? She'd be yapping or something, I'd say, "I'm sorry, why am I hearing your voice? I'm not in the kitchen.' "

What an asshole.

My boyfriend says I look like the girl in this video. The only resemblance I see is the hair lol.

I wish that all commercials were Japanese commercials because they are just so much more entertaining than ours! I would sit and watch commercials for hours if that were so!

Banning Minarets?

Switzerland has recently voted to ban any further construction of minarets in their country. The right-wing Swiss People’s Party proposed it because of the rising numbers of immigrants and the “Islamisation” of their country. Recently Europe has had a huge influx of immigrants from Middle Eastern countries, and since a lot of them are Muslim, there has been a culture clash between the mostly Christian Swiss and the Muslim immigrants.

Supporters of the ban say that the minaret is a political symbol that would help introduce sharia law into Switzerland. This idea is so completely absurd I can’t even wrap my mind around it. A minaret is a cultural symbol that comes from centuries of tradition- not some covert plan by the minority to take over the country! By banning the construction of minarets in their country they are keeping Muslims from celebrating their heritage.

In a region that already has shaky relations with Muslims, do they really want to ban one of their cultural traditions? Countries do things like this and then they wonder why there are so many terrorists. By banning the building of minarets in their country they are also saying that Muslims are not wanted in their country, despite the fact that it is a democratic country. The president of Zurich’s Association of Muslim Organizations said that "During this campaign in the last two weeks different mosques were attacked, which we never experienced in 40 years in Switzerland…” It’s obvious to me that this ban has nothing to do with politics but is more to do with prejudice, and it is helping to spread prejudice against Muslims throughout their country.

This ban treats Muslims in Switzerland like 2nd class citizens and should be repealed immediately before any more cultural traditions of Islam are banned.

Time for a change

It's time to finally start blogging again! I stopped for about half a year because I started school again, got side-tracked and got out of the habit of blogging. I think it's about time now for me to start again lol.

My old blog was a mainly a fashion blog and I was really enjoying it. I was a fashion major at a community college and I thought that was what I wanted to do.

One day I went to New York City to apply for a fashion design internship and I realized that I do not want to be involved in that industry in any way! I mean, I always thought that the industry was really obsessed with looks and everything- but I always thought that I could ignore it\overcome it. But being surrounded by that environment constantly for an entire day was pretty soul-sucking and it made me realize that if I decided to dedicate my life to that profession I would essentially be dedicating my life to clothes. BORING! Since I suddenly abhored everything to do with fashion, I started to hate my old blog- so that's probably why it failed so miserably.

I switched to majoring in Sociology and Women's Studies which I find a LOT more interesting. Also, I think that it would be easier for me to feel as if I was really accomplishing something with my life with the sort of work I could do with that degree.

I don't really have any set idea of what this is going to turn out to be I'm just going to write whatever the hell I feel like writing's my damn blog after all! It's probably going to be mostly about popular culture and women's issues (since that's what I'm majoring in).

So here's blogging: round 2, and let's hope this time I'm more successful with it!
