Go Vote!

http://www. familysecuritymatters. org/publications/id. 1628/pub_detail. asp
I have to say that this article is really well written and that I tend to agree with most of what they said.

I got a feeling about McCain the very first time I heard him talk. He was being made fun of on a talk show because he entered the race late, and missed the first debate between the republican candidates. They thought he wouldn't go far, but boy were they wrong. I told everyone that I really liked this man, but couldn't remember his name. It finally became clear who he was, and I don't think I was wrong about him. It was one of "those" feelings, and I don't think I could go against it if I wanted to (and I don't want to).

One of my main concerns about Obama is that what he says and the company he keeps are totally different.If you don't want to be associated with those ideas and those behaviors, why continue to keep them in your company?

It is so important that you know who you're voting for, and not just the song and dance they give you.

And please don't vote for a certain person based solely on who's endorsing them! Think for yourself, do your own research, and vote for who YOU want to vote for!

‘Dancing’ pros critical of Cheryl Burke’s weight

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Louis Van Amstel both think she’s too heavy.
Cheryl Burke is facing new criticism about her weight, from fellow pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Louis Van Amstel.
“Dancing With the Stars” professional Cheryl Burke is facing new criticism over her weight and it’s not from bloggers, but from her fellow pros.
“(People) look at this show to be inspired and think, ‘If I just work hard enough, I can look like that,” Louis Van Amstel, who in “DWTS” season 6 was paired with Priscilla Presley, told the new issue of
TV Guide. “If they watch someone who’s dancing her butt off and she’s still heavy, they can be discouraged. You have to take that responsibility.”
Van Amstel and fellow professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy spoke out about Burke’s weight and that of “Dancing” newcomer Lacey Schwimmer in the mag’s new issue.
Chmerkovskiy, who was forced to leave “DWTS” earlier this season when his partner, Misty May-Treanor, tore her Achilles tendon, said he asked the women to take stock of their figures at the start of the season.
“When I first saw these women this season, I said, ‘Guys, you know the camera adds 10 pounds,’” Chmerkovskiy recounted. “‘You have to do something about this.’”
Burke attributed her weight gain to having fun over the summer, and Schwimmer said she isn’t yet “back to” her “old self” following a December 2007 knee surgery.
Van Amstel, however, said the weight gain happened because there was no “DWTS” jaunt over the summer.
“If you want to gain weight, it’s your prerogative,” Van Amstel said. “We all put on weight because there was no summer tour. But you have to deal with the consequences.”
But not everyone has been weight-critical.
As previously reported on, Burke’s current castmates — including leaderboard champ Brooke Burke — recently leapt to her defense after bloggers singled the two-time “DWTS” champ out.

“I think we have a lot of pressure on us being in Hollywood,” Burke previously told Access. “Cheryl is an example. I think she is sexy and voluptuous. I have always loved her body as feminine.”
And Burke’s celebrity partner Maurice Greene also had encouraging words.
“My family, my boys, everybody was calling her and telling her she looked great and don’t be worrying about that stuff,” he said. “I think she looks great and you know what? As long as she feels good, that’s the only thing that matters really.”

Story found at

My sister is the one who actually told me about this, and I felt that I needed to comment.

I've been watching DWTS religiously since I saw Cheryl win with Emmitt Smith. I did notice, at the beginning of this season, that her rear and thighs were a little bigger than in the past, but not so much so as to deserve this type of criticism. I mean come on! The girl is beautiful, and a lot of women would kill to have her figure!

If I were her I'd tell them to keep to themselves, because look at who has TWO mirror ball trophies under her belt, and who has NONE. You just keep doing what you're doing, girl!

My favorite female dancers are Julianne and Kym, but I only have one favorite male dancer, and he's not in this season: Jonathan Roberts (I miss you Jon!). So, on that note, Get better soon Julianne!! You will be missed!
