Your daughter's Barbie gets the family secrets!
....Now THIS opens a lot of doors for possibilities,
Can you imagine a kid saying something to Barbie about Mom of Dad drinking alot or my brother trying to make me have sex? Wow.
How does Barbie answer that?
Here’s the first response from one childerns organization:
“This latest take on the iconic doll has some advocacy organizations concerned. Among them is the nonprofit Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, which has launched a petition calling on Mattel to ditch the talking doll. "Kids using Hello Barbie' won't only be talking to a doll, they'll be talking directly to a toy conglomerate whose only interest in them is financial. It's creepy -- and creates a host of dangers for children and families. Children naturally reveal a lot about themselves when they play. In Mattel's demo, Barbie asks many questions that encourage kids to share information about their interests, their families, and more -- information advertisers can use to market unfairly to children."
Like I say...Barbie may not have the answers for the kids but Mattel will sure have the info!
Here’s the whole story and Mattel’s denial denial:
now...the Ted Cruz birthright flap.
Actually he WAS born in Canada...like Donald Trump charges...but he CAN run for Prez
“Cruz was born a citizen of the United States.
Even though Cruz was born in Canada, he was American from the moment of his birth.
Cruz's mother, Eleanor Darragh, was a US citizen from Delaware. His father, Rafael Cruz, was a Cuban national who had received a green card while living in the US (he eventually became a US citizen in 2005). Under American law, Cruz would be born an American despite having only one US citizen parent as long as that parent — his mother — had physically lived in the United States for at least 10 years and five of those years had been after her 14th birthday. Cruz's mother easily cleared that bar, so Cruz's citizenship is not debatable.”
Boy I’m glad they cleared that up.
Now... how about Obama?
