John Kerry Fighting for the Gays!

izz: Just think if John Kerry had beat that dumbass villiage idiot Bush back then, what a different world we would probably be in today. But I digress. 3 years ago Brazilian-born Genesio Oliveira was forced to leave Boston after being denied asylum in the U.S. because the federal government does not recognize same-sex marriages and had to return to Brazil not sure if they would see each other again..(Oliveira married Tim Coco in Mass. in 2005.) So fucked up!!  Then John Kerry stepped in asking Napolitano to issue a "humanitarian parole". 

Oliveria is back with Coco as of now but they are working on getting him permanent citizenship.

Jaws found!

izz: Jaws is one of my all time favorite movies. I have it in my dvr and on dvd. I can watch that movie over and over. Every time summer starts to creep upon us, i find myself hitting the play button. I was VERY young when it came out and it is the first movie i remember seeing in the theater. No matter how many times i watch it, it still is as thrilling as the first time. It truly never gets old.

Corey Turner a reporter for NPR, did some digging and located one of the sharks made from the original mold of Jaws. Although it was not one of the 3 used in the movie (they have been destroyed, wtf?) but since it came from the same mold, it's just as authentic. Corey located it hanging in a junk yard in Sun Valley Ca. I live in LA, not to far so i may find myself making the short trek one weekend to see it for myself. 

Click on the link below the excerpt to read the rest of this fun story, plus the great behind the scene photos.

"We met at Adlen's U Pick Parts auto yard. Adlen led us through a compound of buildings, through a garage and a pair of gates until we emerged into a sea of junked cars — 26 acres' worth — and a tiny oasis of palms and loquat plants. In the middle of that oasis, atop two metal poles, was a shark. Its skin was cracked; its color badly faded. Instead of rows of menacing teeth, it had harmless wooden dentures.
But as Alves pointed out, the size was right.

"You know what amazes me though, seeing it?" he said. "How big the damn thing is."

But was it Bruce? Alves thought so, but he deferred to Arbogast. Arbogast walked under the belly of the beast, poking it with the handle of a rake. Then he stopped. I watched him, anxiously awaiting a verdict.

"That's the real one," Arbogast said.

I asked if he was sure.

"Definitely. It's from the same mold," he said. "It's just kinda nice to see it again after 25 or 30 years. It's amazing that it's still here."

Another one! Sex abuse suit filed against L.A. Archdiocese

izz: God (literally) does this ever get old? How is the catholic church even still standing with all these law suits and settlements and their tarnished name. I am surprised that they have attendees! lols...

p.s. Where did he get that hat, from Madonna? Music makes the people come together... nice gay face

A 27-year-old man filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Archdiocese this week charging that the church failed to protect him from sexual abuse by former priest Michael Baker, who has since pleaded guilty to criminal charges of molesting children.
The man, identified as "John MG Doe" in the suit, alleged that Baker abused him for two or three years beginning when he was 12, while he was a student and altar boy at St. Columbkille parish in South Los Angeles. The church was aware of Baker's "dangerous propensities and tendencies as a child molester" but allowed the priest to have continued contact with children, the lawsuit alleges. The suit only identifies the alleged abuser as "Doe 4." Attorney Vince Finaldi said court filings at a later date would identify "Doe 4" as Baker.
The plaintiff is the younger brother of Luis C., one of the two boys Baker admitted molesting in his criminal case. The two brothers did not know of each other's abuse, Finaldi said. Luis C. settled his claim against the archdiocese for $2.2 million, according to Finaldi.
For church critics, Baker's case has come to symbolize the church's failings. Authorities have said he confessed to Cardinal Roger Mahony in 1986, after which Mahony, then a bishop, sent the priest to a treatment center and reassigned him to nine other parishes. Mahony has said Baker's case "troubles" him the most and publicly apologized for allowing the priest to remain in ministry.
Baker, who was sentenced to 10 years and four months in prison, has appeared before a federal grand jury investigating the archdiocese and Mahony's handling of abuse cases, sources have told The Times.

Str8 playin' Gay and not on TV.

izz:This is so funny but sad at the same time. This guy had enough of his homophobic family and in the moment of a heated argument, decided to say he was gay when in fact he is 100% straight. You can just picture the scenario unfolding as satire on some weekly half hour comedy. Unfortunately the laughs stop after the last sentence, his parents have not returned any of his phone calls. I applaud his strength and spirit for standing up against the hate! 

Read it below:

I'm a straight male. Very straight. I love women.
I also totally support gay rights - with all my heart. I can't STAND bigotry and it really pisses me off that you don't have equal rights.

I'm straight but if I have a son or daughter that's gay I'll be damned if they don't have the same rights that I do....

My family however, is fairly homophobic.

They live on the east coast. I live in SF.

I've never let them say anything discriminatory in front of me without it being challenged and flat out calling them hateful bigots.

Anyway. Last week I flew back to spend some time with them... They're my family after all and before this our relationship was good... I see them like 1x a year.

We're having dinner and somehow the conversation turns to Obama and "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".

Long story short, my brother in-law says that "fags shouldn't be able to serve in the military" ... and I lose it.

I stand up and say that it's not right to discriminate against ANYONE regardless of sexuality, race, or religion.
... then it dawns on me... they don't know that I'm NOT gay.

So I just come out of the closet.

I live in SF... I'm 35... I'm fit, fashionable, metrosexual even. I've NEVER been married. I've never even brought a girl home to meet Mom...

(though for the record I have plenty of girlfriends, ha).

They think I'm bluffing but once I stick to my guns (and they can see that I'm visually upset) it dawns on them that I'm homosexual.

My dad goes silent and just leaves the table. My sister calls me a jerk for coming out brother in law is pissed. My mother is crying.

At this point I decide I'm not going back. I'm going to be gay as far as they're concerned for the rest of my life.
It was pretty heated... I left shortly after. My calls to the house aren't answered. My sister says she's ok with it but that I shouldn't have come out of the closet....

In a way it hurts because I had a good relationship with my mother and father before this - however, I feel strongly that if they don't love me regardless of my sexuality, then I don't want them in my life.

So here I am.... one of you . I'm ostracized from my family. I'm out of the closet and kicked in the teeth.
This is harder than I thought.

Grindr working overtime in White House "Briefing" Room

Teen drivers in NJ targeted....

This month New Jersey's new law imposing increased restrictions on young drivers, Kyleigh's Law, went into effect. The law, which would, among other things, require all new drivers under 21 to place a red sticker on their license plates has faced widespread opposition and civil disobedience. Concerned about singling out young people to make them targets both for police and sexual predators, opponents have described the law as dangerous and discriminatory. In the midst of this citizen revolt the US Senate is considering federal legislation that would seek to impose some of New Jersey's strictest in the nation driving standards upon all 50 states.
The STAND UP ACT is a mistake and should be reconsidered. If this bill's supporters believe new drivers need time to ease into driving then this bill should apply to all new drivers, not just new drivers under 18. If someone has never been behind the wheel of a car they don't magically become adept at driving by waiting until they are an adult. To target only those under 18 is arbitrary age discrimination.

izz: This is a bunch of bullshit if you ask me. Putting a red sticker on a teenagers license plate? wtf? Yes, that marks them for potential harassment from police or scum predators. Again, wtf is NJ thinking? I understand the story behind this law and it is a tragedy, no doubt. However now because of one tragedy, everyone should be subjected to an unfair law? Their are a lot of laws that come from tragedy's and a good amount of them are justified, i.e. Megan's Law, Amber Alerts. But this is wrong New Jersey.

South Carolina Mayor stickin' up for the Gays!

izz:  I read this over on towleroad. Mayor Junie White of Spartanburg believes in equality for everyone.

"The time for just accepting the way things are is over. We have laws that protect against racial discrimination, and it's time to protect those of different sexual orientations. No one should be discriminated against for whom they love, for wanting to walk down the street holding hands, or for sharing things a free American should have the right to share...

izz: So eloquently said. Why is this so difficult for other politicians/conservative christian in the bible belt to understand? And i am tired of the bible excuse too. You must read the entire statement from Mayor White here.

California bans plastic bags...

The state Assembly voted 41 to 27 to pass a bill that would ban single-use plastic grocery bags. Shoppers now have to either bring reusable bags or pony up 5 cents each for recycled paper bags at the checkout counter.

Schwarzenegger said he will sign the bill,
AB 1998  if it passes the Senate which is expected.
This is staggering, Californians use 19 billion plastic bags a year, wow that's a lot of dog shit...:) 552 bags per person. Plastic bags are no good for the environment we have seen what they do to marine life. 

I am glad this law was passed, there really is no need for plastic bags. Here is a hot stock tip, start investing in pooper scooper companies...

One half of the Gay Malawi couple has been missing.

Tiwonge Chimbalanga has been missing since Saturday night after his release. He was supposedly dropped off at his village by police but no one has seen him, not even family members. His lover Steven, whom he was arrested and sentenced to a 14 year prison term with said he has not seen him either. His brother in-law stated that Tiwonge intended to leave Malawi.

I hope that is the case, that Tiwonge has left Malawi or is in hiding and that Steven will be joining him soon. Unfortunately there is still great threat to them in that hideous country for being gay so i hope nothing sinister has be fallen him.

Jason Akermanis banned for 2 games because of his ignorant comments

Australian footballer Akermanis wrote an article for a news paper saying that gay players should stay in the closet and that there was one out player on his team once and everyone cleared out of the shower when he came in. He felt uncomfortable around him being naked. Think of all the men hes been naked around that he didn't know was gay.  Grow up. I mean what brush did he crawl out from under in the outback? This is just silliness, Jason come now stop embarrassing yourself and act your age.  
p.s. I'd give anything to be in a locker room with those footballers....weeee, but don't tell Jason!

Same sex partners get health coverage next month

The same-sex partners of gay and lesbian federal workers can start applying next month for long-term health-care insurance, the Office of Personnel Management said Tuesday.
President Obama signed a memo last June extending some benefits to same-sex partners of federal workers, including access to the government's Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program. On Tuesday, OPM essentially broadened the definition of relatives eligible for the program to include same-sex domestic partners of eligible federal workers, U.S. Postal Service workers and federal retirees.

izz:You can bet had that douche bag McCain won, this would never have happened...and i say that with all the love in my heart...yeah right. :)

Chocolate cake in a mug...

My friend BV sent this to me. I can not stop laughing because the middle pic looks like a giant turd on a saucer plate. Chocolate cake in a mug, ugg I am sick just looking at it...lols but i thought i would share...

I'll send it to 2 people, then you send it to 2 people, and so on, and so on, and so on. 


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.  Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well..
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous). 

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?

Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day

Joran van der Sloot suspect in a murder...

Joran van der Sloot who was the main suspect in the disappearance of Natalie Holloway is suspected of killing a woman in a Peru hotel room registered in his name. There is video footage of the two of them together the previous night. WTF? knew this was going to happen again. Authorities say he fled to Chile. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if this ends up like a Ryan Jenkins / Jasmine Fiore murder suicide situation. Cuz you can only get away with it so many times!

Introducing the Cast of the 'Gay Housewives of New York'We got wind of the cast of Logo's new "gay housewives" show. And it's filled with just the fame-hungry, attractive, horrible people you could have imagined. They're all models! This is going to be a fantastic mess.

Another closeted repulican politician...

Mike Rogers is reporting that Mark Kirk the republican candidate for senate from Illinois is a closeted gay man. Here we go again. Now his voting record for the gays is nothing even close to the bad record of the other closeted politicians such as Larry Craig, Charlie Crist and others. Kirk is actually the co sponsor of ENDA. He did however vote against the repeal of DADT. This is why Rogers outed him. I personally like Mike Rogers and believe in what he does. He has known about Kirk for a long time and has never revealed that he is gay because of his pretty good voting record. Rogers has been criticized for outing politicians but i think he has been right to do so. When you have people throwing their own under the bus they need to be exposed and taken down for the fraud that they are. It is just wrong plan and simple there is no excuse anymore.

Porn actor go's nuts with machete kills 1, injures 2

LOS ANGELES - Police were searching Wednesday for a porn actor who they say killed one colleague and injured two others with a prop weapon during a late night showdown at the Los Angeles studio where they all worked.
The alleged attacker had been living at the adult entertainment business for several months but his colleagues told him he had to make other arrangements by Wednesday, police Detective Joel Price said.
Price said Steven Hill, 30, attacked a colleague in the back of the building after work Tuesday with a machete-like weapon. Two others who heard the man's screams ran to help him and were also attacked before Hill fled the scene, Price said. 

izz: Jesus, what the hell. Sounds like to much Viagra and roid rage....

Obama threatens to veto defense bill/ DADT...

izz: After promising to repeal DADT, Obama is threating to veto the defense bill voted on last week that includes the repeal of DADT because it also includes spending over 2 billion on a jet engine Robert Gates says we do not need. Gates is pushing for Obama to veto the bill.  Nothing would surprise me.

Even more reasons to hate Wal-mart

izz: I have never been a fan of Wal-Mart. Their business practices are shameful. Their price slashing tactics which force other mom and pop business's in the area to close, their discrimination against employees (they almost have more law suits going and paid more settlements then the catholic church...wink wink :) their shitty salaries, the list could go on. Now Wal-Mart wants to put a super center store at the edge of an historical civil war battle field in Virgina (Wilderness Battlefield). Local residents and 2 preservation groups are suing to stop them, claiming it would ruin the atmosphere. I hope they prevail. With all the other available locations, Wal-Mart needs to a super center on a historic site? So anti American. But they are just interested in their bottom line- money.

Woman sues Google for bad directions...WTF?

 A woman who says she relied on Google for walking directions in Utah that got her hit on a major roadway is suing the Internet company for supplying bad directions.

Lauren Rosenberg filed the $100,000 lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court in Utah. It also names a motorist she says hit her.

Rosenberg says she used her BlackBerry to download walking directions from Google Maps between two Park City addresses.

The Los Angeles County resident claims in her suit that the directions led her to walk through Park City on a road without sidewalks that she says isn't safe for pedestrians. 

izz: So this woman down loads walking directions, see's that there are no sidewalks on the road but continues to walk on it anyway, gets hit by a car and she sues Google? Lady your nuts. If your that stupid in the first place- well not much more i can say on this topic. Come on. Another example of these frivolous law suits i.e. popcorn lung. This should not even get to trial. It should be thrown out and she should be fined for being a dumbass.

Madonna- is she for real?

izz: Now that Malawi couple Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalangal have been pardoned and released from a 14 year prison sentence for loving each other, i guess this maybe shouldn't matter but Madonna thanked her fans on Monday for joining her vocal "campaign" to get the men released. Um, is she kidding? Her first public comment on the couple was AFTER they were sentenced and sent to prison. She said and did nothing to get involved in their case before hand, especially in a country she is so deeply tied into financially and politically. In her statement she almost makes it sound as if herself and the over 30,000 signatures from her fans had a major if not thee, roll in getting them released. Is there anyone more self ingratiating then her? That couple was arrested, jailed, put through humiliating medical tests against their will, tried, convicted, sent to prison with hard labor and pardoned, with no help from Madonna.

here is part of her statement:

“In the last week, over 30,000 of you added your name to mine calling for the release of Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalangal – the Malawi couple sentenced to 14 years hard labour for the ‘crime’ of homosexuality. With incredible joy, I am writing to share with you that Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika has ordered their release,”

Gay Rampage...

izz: In a interview with LA Times Rampage Jackson made some homophobic remarks (read below). Ok, i have heard worse things said, but come on. It always amazes me when discriminating remarks come from black people. Can't wait for the publicist spin on this one, i can just hear it now. Rampage sounds like another ignorant dumb ass.

-- Describing a confrontation Jackson had with a crew member on The A-Team, the LA Times reports that Jackson "threw the guy out, shouting him down with every conceivable gay slur."

-- Jackson is quoted as saying, "Acting is kind of gay. It makes you soft. You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you're cold."

-- Jackson, who lived in Vancouver while filming The A-Team, is quoted as saying, "Vancouver strikes me as a San Francisco-kind of place."

Baptist church in Texas kicked out for allowing gays...

izz: Props to the Royal Lane Baptist  Church for allowing out deacons. Who cares if they have been ousted by the Baptist General Convention of Texas because of their ass backwards way of thinking. BGC, if you are truly doing god's work, then that means accepting everyone for who they are, you stupid ass's.

The Baptist General Convention of Texas voted this week to distance itself from a North Dallas congregation over its acceptance of gay deacons.
The vote on Tuesday against Royal Lane Baptist Church was in keeping with the convention's stance that homosexual behavior is sinful.

If you can stomach the read go here.. :)  (Christian post)

Backpacker kill Grizzly

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A backpacker shot and killed a grizzly bear with his handgun in Alaska's Denali National Park, officials said.
A man and woman reported that they were hiking Friday evening when the bear emerged from trailside brush and charged the woman, park spokeswoman Kris Fister said in a statement.

The man fired nine rounds from his .
45 caliber, semiautomatic pistol at the animal, which then stopped and walked into the brush.
The two reported the shooting to rangers, who restricted access to the Igloo Canyon area for fear that the bear was wounded and dangerous.
On Saturday, rangers found the dead bear about 100 feet from the shooting site.
Park officials are determining the justification for the shooting. It's legal to carry firearms in that area of the park but illegal to discharge them.

Rangers said it was the first known instance of a grizzly bear being shot by a visitor in the wilderness portion of Denali, formerly called
Mount McKinley National Park.

izz: That would be my biggest nightmare, well that and being attacked by a shark. I hope that it wasn't a mother with her cubs though, thats usually why they go on the defense. I wonder if the couple was Sarah Palin and her husband, you know how she likes to shoot anything that moves...

British Politician pays for boyfriends apartment

DAVID LAWS resigned his cabinet post last night after revelations that he used taxpayers’ money to pay rent to his boyfriend.
The Liberal Democrat chief secretary to the Treasury stepped down after a day of agonising over his future. He has been replaced by Danny Alexander, the Lib Dem Scottish secretary.
Laws said in his resignation letter to David Cameron, the prime minister: “I do not see how I can carry on my crucial work on the budget and spending review while I have to deal with the private and public implications of recent revelations.”
izz: When are politicians ever going to learn? wtf queen? brain up. This stuff is just dumb.
