Conn.Gov. Dannel P. Malloy (D) Calls Ron Paul on FEMA "An IDIOT"


Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy (D) shocked CNN’s Christine Romans Wednesday with his response to Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul’s suggestion that FEMA wasn’t necessary for responding to natural disasters.
“I think he’s an idiot,” Malloy stated.
“That’s blunt,” Romans replied, laughing. “That’s quite blunt.”
Malloy continued: “We’re spending $900 million a week in wars, and he is arguing about whether we should spend some amount of money? FEMA now has currently $900 million budget available to it. This is a ridiculous conversation. Really don’t understand what he’s talking about, and I’m not sure he does.
“The reality is that this storm was handled in such a way that we have preserved hundreds of lives, without this warning system, without this system of response. We would not be standing here with as few people who have died in this massive storm that stretches from North Carolina through Quebec.”
The governor has asked residents to immediately report any damage in an effort to secure federal funding.

Student Can't Wear-Gay? Fine by me Shirt" Concern for her security?



Sara Couvillon says, "gay? fine by me."
By Zack Ford 


Some are hopeful that the attention brought to LGBT bullying over the past year will make schools safer this year, but Hoover High School in Alabama is not off to a very good start. School officials told 15-year-old Sara Couvillon that she shouldn’t wearher “gay? fine by me” t-shirt because they were “concerned for her safety.” The Southern Poverty Law Center sent a letter today threatening to sue the school on her behalf (PDF):
Indeed, a federal court has already ruled that a school cannot prevent its students from wearing the very expression that you censored.  In Gillman v. School Board for Holmes County, Florida, the school board banned students from wearing pro-gay symbols or slogans such as “I support Gays,” “I Support My Gay Friends,” and “Gay? Fine By Me.”  In striking down the ban, the court held that the slogans were “not vulgar, lewd, obscene, plainly offensive, or violent, but [were] pure, political, and expresse[d] tolerance, acceptance, fairness, and support” for a marginalized group.  The court ruled that by banning such slogans, the school board violated the students’ free speech rights under the First Amendment and discriminated against their viewpoint in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment.  In addition to striking down the school’s ban, the court also ordered the school board to pay $325,000 for the students’ legal fees and expenses.
Evidently, officials at your school told Sara that she could not wear the shirt because they were “concerned for her safety.”  Yet, Sara did not experience any threats of violence, nor did the officials tell Sara that there were threats of violence against gay students from which disruption could have, or did, result.  In fact, Sara had routinely worn the t-shirt during the previous school year without incident.  Therefore, the officials’ stated reason for the censorship was unfounded and unsubstantiated.
It’s disappointing that the school would choose to avoid “controversy” over taking the proper measures to protect students like Couvillon from bullying. Her shirt serves to fight anti-gay stigma and affirm her classmates, but her school would deprive her of the opportunity to stand up for them. The 2009 GLSEN study of school climates found that having LGBT-supportive staff helps students not only feel safer, but also perform better academically. Hopefully, SPLC’s threat is a wake-up call for Hoover High to create a more welcoming environment for its students.

    Husband Of Gay Congress Candidate May be Deported


    Earlier this month, the Obama administration acquiesced to the demands of immigration reform advocates and announced that it would review all 300,000 active deportation cases to ensure that they are consistent with the nation’s enforcement priorities. The case-by-case review will allow the government to focus its resources and efforts on high priority targets — individuals who pose a threat to public safety and national security or repeat immigration law violators — while exempting low priority groups, including binational same-sex couples, from deportation.
    Gay and lesbian Americans face additional complications because the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) prevents the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages and prohibits couples who are legally married in one of the six states (and DC) that now allow marriage equality from petitioning the federal government for the same immigration benefits that are afforded to separate-sex relationships.
    The legally married Dutch spouse of congressional candidate Mike Williams — who is running in Connecticut’s 5th district — may soon be a victim of the discriminatory policy, since he could face deportation after losing his job. Williams will be unable to sponsor his husband Bart Hoedemaker for permanent residency because their relationship has no status under federal immigration regulations:
    “Most people don’t realize about DOMA, they think, well, you’re married in Connecticut, it’s fine, and they’re shocked to find out that it doesn’t matter,” said Williams. But no matter what the Administration does about enforcement, Williams cannot sponsor Hoedemaker for a green card — a right Williams’ sister will soon exercise on behalf of her Argentinian fiancé. Without a green card, not only could Hoedemaker’s status be subject to the whims of a new Administration or a Congressional action, he would not be eligible to work.
    It’s unlikely that Hoedmaker’s case will qualify for review under the administration’s new policy, since the process only applies to cases already in deportation. And many more LGBT couples may be facing a similar fate. The Immigration Policy Center estimates that there are “approximately 36,000 same-sex binational couples living in the United States, and approximately half of these couples are raising children.” President Obama has yet to come out in support of full marriage equality, but he has endorsed legislation to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. The so-called Respect for Marriage Act currently has 29 co-sponsors in the Senate and 121 supporters in the House.

    For The new Generation: You Should get to Know John Waters


    John Samuel Waters, Jr. (born April 22, 1946) is an American filmmaker, actor, stand-up comedian, writer, journalist, visual artist, and art collector, who rose to fame in the early 1970s for his transgressive cult films. Waters' 1970s and early '80s trash films feature his regular troupe of actors known as Dreamlanders—among them DivineMink StoleDavid LocharyMary Vivian Pearce, and Edith Massey. Starting with Desperate Living (1977), Waters began casting real-life convicted criminals (Liz Renay,Patricia Hearst) and infamous people (Traci Lords, a former porn star).

    Waters skirted mainstream film making with Hairspray (1988), which introduced Ricki Lake and earned a modest gross of $8 million domestically. In 2002, Hairspray was adapted to a long-running Broadway musical, which itself was adapted to a hitmusical film which earned more than $200 million worldwide. After the crossover success of the original film version of Hairspray, Waters's films began featuring familiar actors and celebrities such as Johnny DeppEdward FurlongMelanie GriffithChris Isaak,Johnny KnoxvilleMartha PlimptonChristina RicciLili TaylorKathleen Turner, and Tracey Ullman.
    Although he has apartments in New York CitySan Francisco, and a summer home in Provincetown, Waters still mainly resides in his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland, where all his films are set. He is recognizable by his trademark pencil-thin moustache, a look he has retained since the early 1970s.

    James Franco on Sal Mineo Picture

    James Franco is definitely cool with the gays. First he's got film bios of James Dean, Harvey Milk, Allen Ginsberg, and Hart Crane on his resume. His new project Sal, which Franco directed and costars in,
    continues that trend by covering the final hours of gay actor Sal Mineo's life. (The Rebel Without a Cause co-star was murdered in 1976.)In hopes of clearing up some misconceptions about Mineo, Franco released a statement about the film."Sal Mineo was 37 when he was murdered and was on the cusp of a new upswing in his career. He had started as a child star and when he was 15 acted opposite James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause, for which they were both nominated for Oscars. [Editor's note: Dean was nominated for East of Eden, not Rebel.] As a young performer Sal was incredibly successful, as both an actor and a singer, and then in his twenties, for a variety of reasons both in and out of his control, he lost the recognition he had enjoyed at the beginning of his career. He struggled through his twenties and thirties to work, never again achieving the level of success he once enjoyed. He lived the common tragedy of so many creative people who are so passionate about what they do and yet don’t have an outlet for their work. But even to the end Sal was fighting for freedom of expression and for ways to create work that was exciting and new. When he was murdered the tabloid magazines groundlessly hinted that the murder might have involved drugs or a lover, and the memory of Sal has been forever tainted by such conjecture in bad faith. This film is a portrait of a sensitive and kind artist in his last hours."Sal is set to premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival this Saturday.

    Public Religion Report:“coming out” is good rather than bad for American society.




    Public Religion Report

    There is at least a 20-point generation gap between Millennials (age 18 to 29) and seniors (age 65 and older) on every public policy measure in the survey concerning rights for gay and lesbian people.

    • More than 6-in-10 (62%) Millennials favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry, 69% favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to adopt children, 71% favor civil unions, and 79% favor employment discrimination protections for gay and lesbian people.
    • Among seniors, only about 1-in-3 favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry (31%) or favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to adopt children (36%). A majority of seniors favor civil unions (51%) and employment discrimination protections for gay and lesbian people (58%), but support lags significantly behind Millennials and the general population.

    The generation gap in support for same-sex marriage is striking and persists even among conservative political and religious groups.

    • Nearly half (49%) of Republican Millennials favor allowing gay and lesbian people to marry, compared to only 19% of Republican seniors and less than one-third (31%) of all Republicans.
    • Forty-four percent of white evangelical Millennials favor allowing gay and lesbian people to marry, compared to only 12% of evangelical seniors and 19% of evangelicals overall.

    Public support for allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry has increased significantly over the last 5 years. 

    • Many polling organizations have recorded double-digit increases in support for same-sex marriage since 2006. In 2011, for the first time, multiple surveys from different organizations (including Gallup, ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Public Religion Research Institute) found a majority of the public favored same-sex marriage.
    • In PRRI’s current July survey, views about same-sex marriage are evenly divided; 47% of Americans favor it and 47% oppose it. 

    There is also a strong net positive self-reported increase in support for same-sex marriage among the general population, and most Americans currently say supporting same-sex marriage is the more socially acceptable position to hold. 

    • Among Americans who say their views have shifted over the last five years, more than twice as many say their current opinion about the legality of same-sex marriage has become more supportive than more opposed (19% and 9% respectively).
    • Consistent with this sea change in opinion over the last five years, a majority (51%) of Americans currently say it is more socially acceptable to support same-sex marriage rather than to oppose it. Nearly two-thirds (64%) of Millennials say it is more socially acceptable to favor same-sex marriage, while a majority (56%) of seniors say it is more socially acceptable to oppose same-sex marriage. 

    Despite the conventional wisdom that religious groups generally oppose rights for gay and lesbian Americans, there are major religious groups on both sides of the debate over same-sex marriage.

    • Majorities of non-Christian religiously affiliated Americans (67%), Catholics (52%), and white mainline Protestants (51%) favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry.
    • On the other hand, 6-in-10 (60%) African American Protestants and approximately three-quarters (76%) of white evangelical Protestants oppose allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry.
    There is broad acceptance of same-sex relationships in society and Americans are comfortable with gay and lesbian people in a variety of public professions.
    • Nearly two-thirds (64%) of Americans agree that gay and lesbian relationships should be accepted by society, including majorities of all major religious groups except white evangelicals.
    • Americans are comfortable with gay and lesbian people serving in a variety of public roles in society, including as a law enforcement officer (75%), a doctor (71%), a judge (70%), a high school teacher (63%), an elementary school teacher (61%), and a clergy person (56%). 

    Most Americans believe it is difficult to live openly as a gay or lesbian person, but twice as many Americans believe more gay and lesbian people “coming out” is a good thing rather than a bad thing for American society.

    • A majority (51%) of the public say it is very or somewhat difficult in their community to live as an openly gay or lesbian person, compared to 45% who say it is not too or not at all difficult. 
    • More than one-third (34%) of Americans say that more gay and lesbian people “coming out” and letting people know they are gay or lesbian is a good thing for society, compared to 18% who say it is a bad thing for society.
    Slightly more Catholics believe the Catholic Church’s position on the issue of homosexuality is too conservative than believe it is about right.
    • Forty-six percent of Catholics think the Catholic Church’s position on the issue of homosexuality is too conservative, 43% think it is about right, and only 6% think it is too liberal. Even among Catholics who attend church at least weekly, nearly 4-in-10 (37%) say that the Catholic Church is too conservative on the issue of homosexuality. 

    Nearly seven-in-ten (69%) Millennials agree that religious groups are alienating young people by being too judgmental about gay and lesbian issues. 

    • Among seniors, only 37% agree that religious groups are alienating young people by being too judgmental and 48% disagree. 

    More than 6-in-10 Americans believe that negative messages from America’s places of worship contribute either a lot (23%) or a little (40%) to higher rates of suicide among gay and lesbian youth.

    • Among religious groups, 73% of non-Christian affiliated, 64% of Catholics, 60% of black Protestants, 59% of white mainline Protestants, and 51% of white evangelical Protestants say places of worship contribute either a lot or a little to higher rates of suicide among gay and lesbian youth.

    Is Amazon Capable of producing an iPad killer?


     

    One analyst sparks a flurry of debate by predicting that a cheap (and unannounced) Amazon tablet could prove a real threat to Apple

    The iPad has essentially crushed its many competitors, but one analyst predicts that Amazon could be the company to take Apple down a peg.

    Best Opinion:  Beatweek Magazine, LA Times, PC Mag
    Ever since the iPad's acclaimed debut last year, the search has been on for a worthy challenger to Apple's tablet juggernaut, which has sold some 29 million units to date. The wait may at last be over. On Monday, analyst Sarah Rotman Epps suggested that Amazon could soon shake up the tablet market and end Apple's dominance by releasing a not-yet-announced tablet for under $300. Such a tablet could sell as many as 5 million units in the fourth quarter, Epps predicts. Really?
    Nope. This is unfounded speculation: This is "yet another round of tech headlines so clearly penned by Apple-hating geeks who will do and say and write anything in the hopes of creating a self-fulfilling prophecy," says Timmy Falcon atBeatweek Magazine. The Amazon tablet doesn't even exist yet, and there's no real evidence that it could be a serious challenger to the iPad. Sure, Amazon could afford to sell tablets at a loss, what with all its Kindle book sales, but it would have to practically give its tablets away to topple Apple.
    "Supposed Amazon tablet rivals HP TouchPad in misplaced anti-iPad hype"

    And this sounds familiar...: "How can just another tablet — one that Amazon has not confirmed even exists — prompt such an optimistic, multimillion-sales forecast?" asks Carolyn Kellogg in the Los Angeles Times. From all the hype we've heard about it, you'd think it could "mix up a mean gazpacho" and babysit, too. In truth, this rumored tablet sounds a lot like Barnes & Noble's Nook. That gadget has been a modest success — but it's hardly revolutionized the industry.
    "The hypothetical Amazon tablet will take over the universe"

    Watch out — Amazon could really succeed: "If done right, this tablet could be really disruptive, and Amazon has the best chance of any company so far to do well," says Sasha Segan at PC Mag. Coming to the game late, Amazon can learn from others' mistakes. If Amazon prices a tablet at $249, makes it small enough to hold in one hand, chooses Google Android Honeycomb operating system, and gives it a screen uniquely suited to reading — this sucker would be a force to be reckoned with. "A well-run, Honeycomb-centric Amazon AppStore would not only supercharge Amazon's tablet," it could also bring users of other Android tablets into the Amazon fold.

    Lawrence O’Donnell says Giuliani as ‘hero of 9/11is a Fraud!

    MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell ripped former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for choosing to put the city’s Emergency Command and Control Center in the World Trade Center despite being advised by professionals in his administration not to place it in an “obvious terrorism target.”
    “Rudy Giuliani learned absolutely nothing from the first deadly attack on the World Trade Center,” he said. “As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, most of the media will continue to portray him as one of the heroes of 9/11. Know this. There is no more fraudulent public image in our politics than Rudy Giuliani, hero Of 9/11.”

    Oscar de La Hoya (The Golden Boy)Comes Clean in Interview


    Former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya said he thought about suicide and has been going to rehab because he has become dependent on drugs and alcohol in an interview with Spanish-language network Univision.
     
    ''Rock bottom was recently,'' De La Hoya said, according to an English-language transcript provided by the network. ''Within couple of years, just thinking if my life was even worth it. I don't have the strength, I don't have the courage to take my own life but I was thinking about it.''
    De La Hoya says he has been sober for three months after undergoing treatment and joining Alcoholics Anonymous.
    He said he was unfaithful to his wife and that they were separated for a while.
    ''We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here, but I was unfaithful,'' De La Hoya said.
    De La Hoya retired in 2009 after a 16-year career in which he won 10 world titles in six divisions and became boxing's most popular fighter.
    De La Hoya was thoroughly beaten by Manny Pacquiao in his last fight. He won his last title in May 2006, beating Ricardo Mayorga in six rounds for the WBC 154-pound belt. He finished with a record of 39-6 and 30 knockouts.

     

    Known as ''The Golden Boy,'' De La Hoya transcended his sport, using his bilingual skills to generate crossover appeal among Latinos and whites.
    He began boxing at age 5, following in the path of his grandfather and father. He won an Olympic gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Games, delivering on a promise to his late mother, Cecilia, who died of breast cancer two years earlier.
    ''There were drugs, my drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol, hmm. Cocaine was recent. The last 2 years, last 2 1/2 years and I depended more in the alcohol than the cocaine,'' De La Hoya said. ''It took me to a place where I felt safe, it took me to a place where I felt as if nobody can say anything to me, it took me to a place where I just can reach out and grab my mom.''

    32 yr old Russian Guy ate man he met on gay dating website

    by James Park
    An alleged cannibal in Russia has been arrested after confessing to stabbing, killing, and then eating a 32-year-old man met using a gay dating service.
    The 21-year-old man, identified only as Ivan L reportedly confessed to eating the gay man, identified as Roman E, in the city of Murmansk, in the extreme north-west of Russia.
    The English-language Russian news agency RIA Novosti quotes Murmansk Investigation Committee chief Fyodor Bludenov as saying: “the defendant wanted to try eating at least 10 people in the future.
    “It wasn’t that he had an extraordinary hatred for those of a different sexual orientation, but he was sure that such people [gay men] would keep a secret about who they were meeting, so it would be harder to catch him.
    “The accused stabbed the man a few times, and after having assured himself that the man was dead, he cut up his body and ate him.”
    It is claimed that Ivan L posted video clips online of his culinary achievements.
    The investigation committee indicated that the case is not unique, stating that it has been 20 years since the last case of cannibalism in the city of just 307,700.

    Steve Jobs a College Drop Out but a Technology god: even gods get sick


    As Steve Jobs steps down as CEO at Apple -- perhaps the world's most valuable and admired company -- business and tech pundits are showering him with superlatives: Innovator. Visionary. Genius.

    The skinny man in the black mock turtleneck, and the company he created, have had arguably more impact than anybody on how we consume content in the digital age.

    "Steve Jobs is one of the great innovators in the history of modern capitalism," New York Times columnist Joe Nocera told CNN's Piers Morgan Wednesday night. "His intuition has been phenomenal over the years."

    But four decades ago, you might have been hard-pressed to spot clues to Jobs' future success.

    He dropped out of Oregon's Reed College after one semester, although he returned to audit a class in calligraphy. He quit one of his first jobs, designing video games for Atari, to backpack around India and take psychedelic drugs.
    But those early experiences, Jobs would say later, shaped his creative vision. The graceful brush strokes of the calligraphy class influenced his elegant Apple aesthetic. His LSD trips as a young man expanded his mind and helped breed Apple's counterculture, "think different" spirit.

    "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future," he told Stanford University graduates during a commencement speech in 2005. "You have to trust in something -- your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."

    Why Steve Jobs is so fascinating
    Born February 24, 1955, and then adopted, Jobs grew up in Cupertino, California -- Apple's longtime home -- and showed an early interest in electronics. As a teenager, he phoned William Hewlett, president of Hewlett-Packard, to request parts for a school project. He got them, along with a summer job offer at HP.
    While at HP, Jobs befriended Steve Wozniak, who impressed him with his skill at assembling electronic components. The two joined a Silicon Valley computer hobbyists club, and Jobs soon teamed with Wozniak and two other men to launch Apple Computer Inc.

    It's now the stuff of Silicon Valley lore: Jobs and Wozniak built their first commercial product, the Apple 1, in the garage of Jobs' parents in 1976 (the same year Microsoft began developing software). Jobs sold his Volkswagen van to help finance the venture. The primitive computer, priced at $666.66, had no keyboard or display, and customers had to assemble it themselves.

    The following year, Apple unveiled the Apple II computer at the inaugural West Coast Computer Faire. The machine was a hit, and the personal computing revolution was under way. Jobs was among the first computer engineers to recognize the appeal of the mouse and the graphical interface, which let users operate computers by clicking on images instead of writing text.

    "When you first start off trying to solve a problem, the first solutions you come up with are very complex, and most people stop there," he told Newsweek in 2006. "But if you keep going, and live with the problem and peel more layers of the onion off, you can often times arrive at some very elegant and simple solutions."

    For Jobs, that solution was Apple's pioneering Macintosh computer, which launched in early 1984 with a now-iconic, Orwellian-themed Super Bowl ad. Jobs has long had a reputation as a demanding taskmaster, and the mustachioed computer whiz -- a multimillionaire by age 30 -- drove his Macintosh engineers hard to produce the machine he wanted.

    The boxy beige Macintosh was a success, but Jobs clashed frequently with colleagues, and in 1986, he was ousted from Apple after a power struggle. Then came an 10-year hiatus during which he had high-profile successes (buying Pixar Animation Studios from George Lucas before they made it big with "Toy Story") and failures (founding NeXT Computer, whose pricey, cube-shaped computer workstations never caught on).

    In 1996 Apple bought NeXT, returning Jobs to the then-struggling company he had co-founded. Within a year, he was running Apple again -- older and perhaps wiser but no less of a perfectionist. And four years after that, he took the stage to introduce the original iPod, the little white device that revolutionized portable music and kick-started Apple's furious comeback.

    Internet mourns Jobs' resignation | iReport: Share your thoughts
    "I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple," he said at Stanford in 2005. "It was awful-tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick."
    When it comes to Apple, you pretty much know the rest. Over the next decade, Jobs wowed launch-event audiences, and consumers, with one game-changing hit after another: iTunes (2003). The MacBook (2006).

    The iPhone (2007). The iPad (2010).
    Observers marveled at his skills as a pitchman, his ability to inspire God-like devotion among Apple "fanboys" (and scorn from PC fans) and his "one more thing" surprise announcements. Time after time, he sold people on a product they didn't know they needed until he invented it. And all this on an official annual salary of $1.

    By the mid-2000s, however, Jobs was having serious health problems. In 2004, he announced to his employees that he was being treated for pancreatic cancer. He lost weight and appeared unusually gaunt at keynote speeches to Apple developers, spurring concerns about his health and fluctuations in Apple's stock price. One wire service even accidentally published Jobs' obituary.

    Jobs, 56, who is married with four children, had a liver transplant in 2009 during a six-month medical leave of absence from Apple. He took another medical leave in January this year. Because of this, some observers said they weren't surprised by Wednesday's news that Jobs was stepping down as Apple's CEO.
    Read Jobs' resignation letter

    "There is a certain sort of sad inevitability to this moment," the Times' Nocera told CNN, adding that Jobs wouldn't give up control of his company easily. "Apple is his life. He cares about it almost as much as he cares about his wife and children."

    Jobs doesn't give many interviews, especially about his personal life, and Apple has been tight-lipped about his health. But perhaps mindful of his legacy, he has cooperated on his first authorized biography, scheduled to be published by Simon & Schuster in November.

    "I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of, such as getting my girlfriend pregnant when I was 23 and the way I handled that," Jobs is quoted as saying in the promotional material for the book by Walter Isaacson. "But I don't have any skeletons in my closet that can't be allowed out."

    By contrast, Jobs has always spoken with immense pride about what he and his engineers have accomplished at Apple.

    "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do," he told the Stanford grads.

    "If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on."
