Mitt Romney: Hospital Visitation For Gay Couples Are ‘Benefits’ Not Rights


I am getting really sick and tired of this conservative Mormon telling me what I can and cannot do with, or for, the one I love. My relationship, whether deemed appropriate or not in his mind, is MINE to handle as I please. If my fiancée (soon to be wife) is in the hospital, there is not one person who will be able to keep me from visiting. Why would anyone want someone who is ill to not have the support of those who love them by their side? It’s an unnecessary way of torturing gay individuals who don’t live up to the religious standards of some Americans. I don’t know when we decided that separation of church and state was no longer working, but I can reassure you that I most certainly wasn’t involved in that vote. Oh wait, nothing of the sort ever took place, yet we still manage to create laws based upon religious beliefs.

Two years ago, the current President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, required all hospitals to treat same-sex couples with the same rights as married heterosexual couples, which includes visitation rights. This is also included in Obamacare, for those who were wondering.

Unfortunately, the presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, feels that is no longer necessary. In fact, he believes that allowing same-sex couples to visit each other in the hospital is not a civil right, but rather, a “benefit” that states can take away if they choose. While this is disgusting, there is also the matter of gay adoption on the table. This too, is something Romney feels the states should be deciding. Instead of allowing some good-hearted, loving couples or individuals to adopt children in need, the state will decide if that isn’t in the best interest of the child. Let me remind you, there have been numerous cases of children who have been adopted to heterosexual couples and are found to be abused physically, sexually and emotionally. I can see how that could be a better upbringing than a non abusive gay household.

“Governor Romney supports a federal marriage amendment to the Constitution that defines marriage as an institution between a man and a woman,” Romney advisor Bay Buchanan toldBuzzfeed today. “Governor Romney also believes, consistent with the 10th Amendment, that it should be left to states to decide whether to grant same-sex couples certain benefits, such as hospital visitation rights and the ability to adopt children. I referred to the Tenth Amendment only when speaking about these kinds of benefits – not marriage.”

A President that only supports a percentage of his country, will most certainly not be a great President historically. The gay rights movement will one day be a thing of the past, just like the civil rights movement. I’m not saying that people no longer face discrimination based on skin color, but the laws have most certainly come to their aid in since the 1950′s/1960′s and I am positive the same will happen for those fighting for gay rights.

I am a liberal, but I do not vote based solely on my political party, I vote with the individuals political policies in mind as well as their plans for America’s future. I am disgusted with the fact that people are still willing to vote for a man who does not respect a good percentage of Americans, simply because they do not want to vote for Obama. Think before you recklessly vote for someone based on ridiculous matters. This is our country, our freedom and our way of life. Vote smart.

[VIDEO] Idiot Loses Toe After Pulling Butter Prank on… Himself.

Screen shot 2012-04-23 at 2.25.30 PM

Looking for clips all day for clip shows is what I do for a living, and looking for pranks is something I am familiar with. More often than not I see things go wrong rather than right. Fortunately for this guy, the prank failed, but he’s secured himself a viral worthy video. Was it worth it? Doubtful. The price of hospital visits cost more than what you would have gotten paid if that were to have been a success…


And seeing as the title says a man loses his toe, I think that should be warning enough that the video is graphic.

YouTube: L.a. Beast tries to carry a boat load of birthday presents in a full speed sprint through a butter filled kitchen floor and ends up in the hospital. WARNING: 2 min in you will see exactly why.

[VIDEO] ‘I will kill the f*** out of you’: Student Goes Crazy on Teacher And Fellow Students in Evolution Class


Jonatha Carr, a Florida Atlantic University student, was tased and taken to the hospital after cursing, issuing death threats and physically fighting. Carr had asked the teacher, ‘How does evolution kill black people?’ and was not happy when he told the student that evolution didn’t kill people. She began to get increasingly upset and started altercations with the teacher as well as with fellow students.

Stephen Kajiura was the teacher in this class and is seen trying to stay calm throughout the incident despite the fact that Carr was telling the professor, ‘You are fucking sick’ and ‘You better shut the fuck up before I fucking kill you.’

After two staff members escorted the crazy bitch, 24, out of the room, police arrived on the scene and took her away in the patrol car. She had to be tased and is now being held at the hospital.


YouTube: Video by Rachel Bustamante (originally posted to Facebook).

“Lunatic in my evolution class asking the most absurd question and gets angry when the Prof (Dr. Kajiura) doesn’t know how to answer it.

Context: The slide we were on just before was about Female Sexual Selection. For instance, female peacocks have selection in their mates, preferring the males with the bigger train of feathers.. Somehow she went off on some tangent with a question about how does Evolution play a role in the killing of all black people…

Dr. Kajiura tried to answer her question even though he had no idea what she was talking about. She repeated her question 4-5 more times and it turned into this craziness you see here… Clearly, this person has some SERIOUS emotional issues within herself and the discussion of PEACOCKS was the catalyst to the unleashing of this insanity.

She was escorted out of class and I heard she was tasered and arrested by the police. Today was our review day before a test on Thursday and students were getting irritated by her wasting our time. No one understood what her point was… Craziest thing I’ve ever seen.

Apparently natural selection doesn’t remove crazy from the population.”

Pot Brownies Served At Funeral Send Guests To E.R.

Yahoo -

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Pot-laced brownies served at a Southern California funeral sent three people to the emergency room over the weekend, Huntington Beach police said.

Two 71-year-old women and an 82-year-old man were taken to a hospital emergency room Saturday following a friend’s memorial service, where a tray of pot brownies was offered. They complained of nausea, dizziness and an inability to stand without assistance.

The three, residents of Huntington Beach and Newport Beach, didn’t know the marijuana-laced sweets were being offered in memory of their friend, who ate marijuana brownies. Police say the baked goods were put out without any announcement about what was in them.

Huntington Beach does not permit licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in the city limits. Federal authorities announced Friday they plan to crack down on marijuana sales and growing operations throughout the state.

Warren Jeffs In Coma After Starving Himself

The notorious, and previous prophet, Warren Jeffs, has been taken to a hospital after eating and drinking very little.

Jeffs, 55, who is serving a 130-year sentence for sexually assaulting two of his many under-age wives, had been refusing to eat properly for the past three days while behind bars and became so weak he dropped into a coma, sources said.

Just recently, Jeffs was moved to the Louis C. Powledge Unit, located west of Palestine, Texas. Here is where he was put into solitary confinement and spent 22 hours a day in a hot, muggy cell. There was no air conditioning in the cell and seeing how hot it has been in Texas lately, this may have contributed to his becoming so dehydrated.

At this time, he is in a coma and has been declared in critical, but stable, condition. Personally, I don’t care if he survives and wish someone would just pull the plug so no one has to pay for him to stay alive.

Before Jeffs was moved to Louis C. Powledge Unit, he was in the county jail and an officer there had explained that his sexual drive was well above most other inmates. Rick Bradley, the former prison guard, had said that “the child molester, who used to preach to his congregants about abstaining from the act, masturbated continuously while in custody.” In fact, he apparently masturbated about 15 times a day in plain view of everyone in the jail. What a creep.

Boy Shakes Baby Sister To Death To Play Video Games

Crystian Rivera, 13, was left at home and told to look after his nine-month-old sister, Linda Walleska Beletzuy.

While playing his video game, Linda would not stop crying and caused Crystian’s character to die. This poor baby then had to endure hard, violent shaking, at the hands of her brother. After he was done taking his anger out on her, she was laid in her cot, where Rivera said she continued to cry for a bit then fell asleep. Crystian was then able to return to his video game without the threat of her cries killing his video game character.

When both of the minors parents returned home, they found Linda seriously ill and rushed her to the hospital. She was found to have had a fractured skull and blood hemorrhaging in the brain. Obviously, the parents were initially spoken with because this was clearly a case of child abuse. Oddly enough, the mother offered two solutions about Linda accidentally falling and not being present at either incident.

Seeing as the police were not going to accept that this was an accident, she finally told police that her son, Rivera, had been left alone with the infant for six hours while both parents were at work. The minor was 13-years-old, and therefore legally able to be home alone with a child, which means the parents are no longer in legal danger.

Sadly, the baby passed away due to the injuries and her brother, Crystian Rivera, is now being held on murder charges. He is also facing these charges as an adult due to the nature of the crime.

Man Sues Dallas Hospital For Implanting GPS Tracker In His Armpit

Michael Woolman of Lincoln, Nebraska, has filed a claim in Dallas Federal Court, because he had left the hospital with an unexpected gift. Apparently, he had gone into Baylor to get tonsil and sinus surgery, but soon realized he had gotten much more than he had paid for.

After getting help from a nurse to the restroom, a bloody armpit was discovered by Woolman. At the time, he admitted that he wasn’t too concerned, but then says he realized what was happening. The claim states that Bryan LGH is attempting to test a new way of tracking people, “By inserting a GPS Device in people, Illegally.”

I am rather confused as to how he was not too concerned about the bloody armpit after nasal surgery, and then how he miraculously came to the conclusion that a GPS device was inserted into his body illegally. Is there validity to this story? Is it possible that there is no device? Hopefully more answers will be provided, but in the meantime, this has been filed and will be looked into.



Stamina enhancement pills containing dead babies are sold in China

Geekosystem – Supposedly, there was a rumor floating around that somewhere in China, pills made out of dead babies were being sold. A Korean television documentary team decided to track down the truth behind this rumor, and reportedly found a hospital that sells dead babies — mostly abortions or stillbirths, with “mostly” being a scary word here when you think about it — to medicine companies. The team found that when the hospital has a “deceased baby case,” the staff are instructed to immediately alert the medicine company.

The television team also reportedly uncovered the process by which the dead baby pills are made. Supposedly, the medicine companies store the dead babies in a “normal family’s refrigerator,” so as to be undiscoverable, and when they are ready to use the dead baby, they put it into a medical drying microwave. Once dry, they grind the dead baby up and put the powder into a pill capsule.

Supposedly, the television team paid a lot of money to get some of the pills, and when they tested them, found the pills’ contents were 99.7 percent human, and were also able to discern the babies’ gender from the powder, as well as found hair and nail remnants.

The dead babies used are supposedly used with the mother’s consent. The documentary will air August 6 on SBS TV South Korea.

The only thing I’m having trouble understanding is whether the product has actually been proven to work? You would think, if people went to such lengths to obtain dead baby pills, that the pay off would be well worth it. Still though, nail fragments and hair? I don’t know if I could stomach that.


Juan Nicasio Hit In Head By Line Drive

Rockies pitcher, Juan Nicasio, was hit in the head by a line drive during the Nationals game.


Tennage Boy Buried Himself Alive

In Newport Beach, a young teen boy, Matt Mina, had made a tunnel in the sand, which later collapsed on him and leaving him buried alive. Many people who were around rushed to the boy and attempted to help dig him out. After 30 minutes of being buried alive, firefighters were finally able to get him out.

Mina was unconscious when he was recovered, but has since made a remarkable recovery and things are looking good.  Authorities had said that he dug around 5 to 7 feet below ground when the sand that was surrounding him caved in.

Mina apparently screamed for help, but was not heard because he was buried beneath the sand. A family member called out to a Lifeguard and this is when the whole rescue ordeal began.

He told msnbc: ‘I was just really scared. I didn’t know if anyone could hear me when I screamed for help… Once you’re six feet under you can’t hear anything.

‘I through my head around to try make some room because my arms were behind me.

‘I was falling in and out [of consciousness]. I thought I was going to die.

‘I want to thank everyone… that helped me stay alive. I wanted to give a shout out to them and say thank you.’
