I Always Knew Samantha Had Something Up Her Sleeve...

Email from the Pro-Life Action League. This is messed up. I never liked American Girl, anyway. Too girly. This is interesting, though. And a $50,000 donation is a pretty big deal. Better tell my mom to stop buying those stupid "Samantha's Christmas Gingerbread House" kits for my sister (SUCH a waste of money! Why not make an edible, *human sized* gingerbread house?!).

Dear Pro-Life Friend,

Last month we had to picket my old high school for inviting a pro-abortion politician to speak at an alumnae function. Now it looks like next month we may have to picket on of my little girls' favorite spots in downtown Chicago, the American Girl Place.

Thanks to a tip from a pro-life mom, we learned that American Girl's "I Can" self-esteem campaign is linked to Girls Inc., a group with a distinctly anti-family agenda. The program involves a pledge, which is innocent enough, and the purchase of an "I Can" bracelet.

The bracelets cost $1, of which 70ยข goes to Girls Inc., along with a $50,000 donation from American Girl. What's so bad about Girls Inc.? For starters, they support abortion. In their own word: "Girls Incorporated supports a woman's freedom of choice, a constitutional right established by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 in Roe vs. Wade." (Source: http://www.girlsinc.com/ic/page.php?id=4.3.4)

They also condone lesbianism, actively lobby against abstinence-only sex-ed programs, and demand access to birth control for girls. We're calling on parents, grandparents and other family members to call and write American Girl Company President Ellen L. Brothers to sever all links to Girls Inc. immediately:

Ellen L. Brothers, President
American Girl
8400 Fairway Place
Middleton, WI 53562
Tel: 1-800-845-0005
Fax: 608-828-4790
E-Mail: ellen.brothers@americangirl.com

We hope American Girl will realize that their association with Girls Inc. tarnishes their wholesome image, and that we will not have call for a boycott of their products or picket their retail stores in Chicago or New York. But if we have to, that's what we'll do.

Yours for Life,

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
