PETA shames first lady for use of real eggs in White House Easter egg roll

http://twitter.com/#!/ThomDartt/status/457286671583965184 As reported at The Grio, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has recorded a video shaming first lady Michelle Obama for using real eggs to host the White House’s annual Easter egg roll. “Michelle Obama, we need to talk” features young girls advocating for the use of plastic eggs instead. “I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed,” says one girl. “You’re better than this” says another. Do we dare say they come across as a bit bossy? http://twitter.com/#!/BrookLyn1825/status/457210446043312128 http://twitter.com/#!/AmishBMachine/status/457282138832793600 http://twitter.com/#!/Watchmakermaker/status/457286082065743872 http://twitter.com/#!/RobertCFP/status/457286271057293312 http://twitter.com/#!/StoneToneEntLLC/status/457261108924268544 http://twitter.com/#!/JohnnyGoldenrod/status/457247425149677568 http://twitter.com/#!/phive0phor/status/457240428387921920 http://twitter.com/#!/DrumboneJD/status/457260667544686592 Maybe […]

Fixed it for you! Equal Pay Day finally gets the name it deserves

http://twitter.com/#!/amandacarpenter/status/453570770506375168 How ’bout both? The myth that a woman makes just 77 cents for every dollar a man with the same experience earns — for equal work — has been thoroughly, repeatedly debunked. And yet here we are again, watching the dishonest Obama administration’s pitiful attempt to spin away the White House pay gap as it tortures the data to push “Equal Pay Day.” http://twitter.com/#!/WhiteHouse/status/453567147101655040 Just stop. http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/453568141080395776 http://twitter.com/#!/amandacarpenter/status/453567092579905537 Hey, White House, forget the Equal Pay Day chicanery. One generous Twitter user has a more honest suggestion (and conveniently, it can […]
