“You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” she told the Journal. “Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal. I believe a husband and a wife should be a man and a woman, the benefits should be for a man and a woman. There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.” - Georgia GOP Chairwoman Sue Everhart
I’m sorry Ms. Everhart, but you are an absolute idiot. What is stopping two friends, who happen to be straight, from doing this now? Or better yet, if we (the gay community) can’t get married legally, what happens if gay men decide to marry gay women to receive said benefits? Anyone who wants a free ride can do it, with or without gay marriage being legal. The argument that Sue Everhart is making has no validity and is rather moronic to even mention, if you ask me.
There is also the issue of marriage fraud in order to obtain citizenship. Does she not know that this is already something that occurs? And even though marriage has been legal for many years and people have been fraudulently marrying, the percentage of those who do so is INCREDIBLY low.
I understand that she’s striving to put forth a better argument than ‘the bible doesn’t allow it’, but this is just a pathetic attempt to keep homosexuals as second class citizens.
“If it was natural, they would have the equipment to have a sexual relationship,” Everhart told the Journal.
This video was posted to World Star Hop Hop on October 16th, 2012 and took place at a Waffle House in Atlanta, GA. After using the term, “faggot”, a girl takes it upon herself to go after the straight man, before 3 other man start beating the man down to the ground. It is assumed that the three men were gay (but not proven), and many in the restaurant seemed to agree with the sentiment of the men who beat this man for his use of the term.
When you’re drunk and dancing in the street at Palmer Festival, I guess this is the kind of thing that seems like a logical idea. The best thing has to be that her drunk, cocky attitude has diminished and been replaced with embarrassment. Lucky for her, the car was going at a ridiculously slow speed. Ironically, it didn’t really look like it based on how she hit that car and dropped to the ground.

While Brittney was cruising the toy aisle, a man came up behind her, grabbed her and placed his hand over her mouth in the hopes of silently exiting the store. Fortunately, this brave young girl kicked and squirmed until the pervert decided to let her go and escape the consequences of his failure.
She said: ‘I just said “I’m going to see what my momma is doing” and he just grabbed me and picked me up.
‘I was just trying to do like this, and kick as hard as I can.’
The Police Chief, Keith Pesnell, has said that Thomas Woods, 25, from Austell, Georgia, was arrested after officers had chased the vehicle he was seen leaving in. Ironically, Woods was out of state prison on parole after previously having been convicted of voluntary manslaughter. He is claiming that it wasn’t him who was seen on the surveillance tape. Luckily, it’s hard to deny something when you’ve been caught on video. Thank goodness a man like this didn’t succeed in the kidnapping of Brittney and will be sent back to prison where he belongs.

Toddlers and Tiara’s is already a controversial show, but after seeing this I am shocked that they are still allowed to air this crap. Little Alana is a pretty hilarious little girl though who is sadly learning some pretty shitty life lessons from her mother.
Some of the best quotes from the video:
“honey boo boo child”
“a dollar makes me holler”
“my go go juice is kickin’ in right now”

A teacher at an elementary school noticed that one of her 12-year-old students had scratches on his neck and notified authorities. Soon after they discovered something more gruesome about this family and the twisted way the boy’s mother had punished him due to bad grades.
Lynn Middlebrooks Geter, 38, wasn’t too pleased with her son’s report card and instead of hiring a tutor or grounding him from video games, she did something much more heinous. This mother from Warm Springs, Georgia, made her son kill her own pet hamster… with a hammer.
Seeing as the kid was pretty damn traumatized by this incident, he told his teacher the very next day after she had noticed the scratches on her neck.
The teacher called social workers, who in turn called the Meriwether County sheriff’s department. For her visionary parenting strategies, Geter is now in jail for animal cruelty, child cruelty and battery.
Apparently this psycho bitch has many supporters who defend her actions. They bring insight to the fact that she was the PTA president, great mom (HA), and even a dedicated cleaning lady for her local church. Despite all those facts (and one opinion), there is still the fact that she made her son brutally kill an animal that he loved. That was surely emotionally damaging and doesn’t fall under the characteristic of a great mom, in my opinion.

When police and fire personnel were first called to a McDonald’s in Pooler, located just west of Savannah, Georgia, they did not expect to find one dead body and at least 8 others severely injured. Unfortunately, they also didn’t expect a stench that was literally unbearable.
Upon arrival, first responders found two people unconscious in the women’s restroom and also “became stricken (by) an odor,” according to Revenew.
Pooler Fire Chief Wade Simmons said crews “immediately backed out and put on their breathing apparatus,” at which point they re-entered the bathroom.
The stench notwithstanding, Revenew said, authorities were able to bring the women outside and begin providing medical attention, including CPR.
There were nine people, which included three firefighters that arrived on scene, that were taken to the hospital to be treated. Among the nine was the victim who died, Anne Felton, 80, of Ponte Vedra, Florida.
The police chief said that although an investigation is under way, authorities do not anticipate filing criminal charges.
“It appears to be an accident,” Revenew said.
Does this mean that someone accidentally took a toxic shit that was so extremely awful it was capable of killing anyone who breathed in the stench? Or was this an inhuman toxin that caused so much chaos at a small town McDonald’s?
The owners of the franchise, John and Monique Palmaccio, said that are just as shocked and saddened by this incident as anyone else. Yet, their restaurant has been re-opened!
The owners noted that the restaurant reopened Wednesday afternoon after authorities, following a “thorough investigation,” “deemed (the location) to be safe.”
There is no fucking way I would go back into that fucking McDonald’s. That place is pretty much like a war zone; Every time you enter the facility you are risking your life. They have admitted they have no idea what caused the toxic fumes and it took out numerous people! Why on Earth would you risk your life for a fucking McDouble?! Besides, there are as many damn McDonalds’ as there are Starbucks. Walk across the street, spare your life, and enjoy the fattiest food there is

In Snellville, Georgia, a young 21-year-old man by the name of Stephen Daniel may be one of the dumbest criminals yet. Yes, this idiot walked up to the gas station clerk and screamed, ”Give me all the money!” While doing this, the attendant is seen smiling and laughing, most likely due to the fact that he saw the police officer, B.W. Brown, just behind Mr. Daniel.
“I know what’s going on, but he’s not dumb enough to do this with me standing right behind him,” the officer tells Atlanta’s Channel 2 News.

After reading more about this case, it has less to do with them being Vegan and a whole hell of a lot to do with them being bad parents. If the baby was being fed sufficiently, then he wouldn’t have died weighing only 3 pounds. Although apple juice and soy milk is not a normal baby food, you would still think that if their son was wasting away, they would take him to the doctor and figure out the issue.
The Full story from Dailymail -
A Vegan couple who only fed their newborn son soy milk and apple juice have lost out in their bid to have their murder convictions overturned.
Jade Sanders, 27, and Lamont Thomas, 31, had appealed against their conviction four years ago over the death of their six-week-old son who starved to death.
The Georgia Supreme Court upheld the murder conviction of the couple who claimed they were sticking to their beliefs over food.
Charged: Lamont Thomas (L) and Jade Sanders (R) had appealed against their conviction four years ago over the death of their six-week-old son
The two first-time parents had rushed their malnourished son Crown Shakur to hospital after he began to have trouble breathing in 2005.
Doctors declared him dead on arrival after failing to resuscitate him.
An autopsy found his death was due to extreme malnourishment or starvation.
When police searched the couple’s flat in Fulton County, Georgia, they found a soy milk bottle, an apple juice bottle and a rancid-smelling baby bottle caked with debris.
Prosecutors said an investigation revealed the two, who lived a vegan lifestyle and ate no animal products, only fed their baby soy milk and apple juice, and had failed to seek medical treatment when their young son was wasting away.
Prosecutor Chuck Boring said during the trial no matter how many times they want to say, ‘”We’re vegans, we’re vegetarians,” that’s not the issue in this case. The child died because he was not fed. Period.’
Defence lawyers argued at the murder trial that they did not realise their baby was in danger.
At trial, Saunders claimed she also fed her son breast milk and soy milk formula, reports the Atlantic Journal-Constitution.
‘I loved my son – and I did not starve him,’ Jade Sanders said at her May 2007 sentencing hearing.
According to authorities, the child died of bronchopneumonia due to extreme malnourishment or starvation.
The couple were found guilty of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment.
In her appeal, Sanders’ lawyer argued the evidence wasn’t strong enough to support the verdict.
And Thomas’ lawyer claimed his trial attorney was ineffective because he failed to call an expert to support his theory that his son’s death was linked to cystic fibrosis and not starvation.
The Supreme Court rejected the appeal unanimously and said the conviction was safe.
Boy, 14, Stabbed His Great Grandmother To Death With Sword After Being Told To Stop Playing Video Games
After the young teen boy was told to stop playing videos games, he grabbed a sword and stabbed his great grandmother, 77, to death, while also injuring his grandmother. After police arrived on the scene in Douglasville, Georgia, they had to taser the boy who was shooting at them with a pellet gun.
Police said it was the third time in the last three months the teen had been arrested. They had already confiscated another sword off him.
The local sheriffs department responded to a call at 5pm on Monday to find the grandmother, in her 50s, barricaded inside a room and the great-grandmother lying dead on the ground outside the home.
Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller said when deputies arrived at the family’s home in the 3400 block of Spring Ridge in Douglasville, the teen was standing in the doorway with a ‘full-sized sword’ and a pellet rifle.
