Breaking!~ Marriage Equality Returning To The State Of California! Doma Unconstitutional!

marriage-equality

The Supreme Court just handed down the decision that Doma is unconstitutional and equal marriage rights will be returning to the State Of California.

So straight people, gay people, baby blue people can be married again.

DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment. DOMA singles out a class of persons deemed by a State entitled ot recognition and protection to enhance their own liberty. The opinion and its holding are confined to those lawful marriages … The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity. By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others … DOMA has been struck down. Opinion is by Justice Kennedy, joined by the four liberal Justices — Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan.

This will only impact California. The proponents of Prop 8 did not have the right to be represented in court.

Two Lesbians Raised A Baby Story Goes Viral In A Major Way

Although this video was made in February of this year, in the past day, it has went viral in a major way.

The video has recieved a majorty of it's 5 million hits in the past 24 hours and moveon.org is also behind the video, emailing it's supporters the video earlier this morning.

Zack Wahls spoke about his 2 lesbian mothers and how he was raised. That his parents are not 2 second class citizens.

Let me tell you something. I would rather have two gay parents that give a damn about me, that wanted to raise me, then one who was straight and couldn't handle the responsibility.

Think of that the next time you even think about judging someone.  Gay.  Straight.  It doesn't matter as long as that child is loved and brought up the right way.-DocFB

Facebook: 750 Million & Growing

Facebook

Facebook

Wonder if Justin Timberlake and his Myspace peeps along with Google+ are about to do a spit check. On the news that just under 6 million people deleted their facebook page (Although you can't really delete it) they announced they have over 750 million people with Facebook pages. 

They are like the McDonald's of the Social Networks...although if Facebook was serving burgers, I actually might eat theirs.  It really is only a matter of time where it should just say "Facebook: Billions & Billions Served" as their tagline.

Mark Zuckerberg had this to say as they did not really want to release how many members they have:

"The metric of the last five years was about user growth. The driving narrative of the next five years is not about wiring up the world, but what cool stuff (apps) can you build with this wiring in place."

"We did not report 750 million because we do not believe it is the metric."

Interesting to say the least I must say.  Who doesn't have a Facebook page?  Seriously.  We want to hear from you.-Dr.FB

Our prayers go out to his family and fans.......

"It is with profound sadness that the family of George M. Steinbrenner III announces his passing,'' the Steinbrenner family said in a prepared statement. "He passed away this morning in Tampa, Fla., at age 80."

"He was an incredible and charitable man," his family said in a statement. "First and foremost he was devoted to his entire family — his beloved wife, Joan; his sisters, Susan Norpell and Judy Kamm; his children, Hank, Jennifer, Jessica and Hal; and all of his grandchildren."

Sources say he had a heart attack at his Tampa, Florida home Monday night and passed shortly after.

Steinbrenner was known for his controversial ways. He was the proud owner of the New York Yankees but embraced his reputation as a philanthropist in the Tampa Bay area.

Trenton Burdett

For now, we are going to take a break from norm.  This is not a story of Glamorous Hollywood, movie stars, or anything related to the celebrity world.  This is a story about real people and their need for help.

A family friend of the Doctors, recently sent out a message to all friends on Myspace and Facebook asking for prayers for her nephew Trent.  I had heard about little Trent and that he was having some issues, but I did not know the extent.

Trenton Burdett is a sweet, beautiful, lively, cuddly 3 year old little boy with a loving, close-knit family that loves him more than words can describe.  Trent was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in February of this year.  The family was informed that he would have to undergo Chemotherapy for the next 2 and a half years.  We all know how awful Chemo can be and what kind of toll it takes on you.  But for a 3 year old boy to have to deal with that its just not fair.

All of us, at one time or another, have gone to the tanning salon in search of that glowing tan that most of us long for.  You know, thinking it was safer that toasting your self under the sun's rays,  fearing you will get home and find a black dot! Oh no, it can't be!!

Well kids, keep your money in your pocket, hit the beach and get that tan naturally.  The risk is slightly less that those damn tanning beds.

Experts say tanning beds increase the risk of cancer.  The International Agency for Research  (IARC) announced that it is now fact. Until now, the committee of experts who advise the World Health Organization had not confirmed a link between tanning beds, sunlamps, and cancer. The group made the decision after reviewing studies that showed teens and young adults who used tanning beds increased their risk of developing

melanoma by a whopping  seventy-five percent.

Video~ African Elephants Bette and Kallie Give New Home A ‘Trunk’ Up

It's not the great outdoors, but the Pittsburgh Zoo's International Conservation Center provides 724 rolling rural acres that appears to be  just what  Bette and Kallie, two African Elephants have been looking for.

The elephants arrived at the former commercial wild-game hunting reserve July 8 after the Philadelphia Zoo closed its elephant exhibit. They walked outside for the first time, tearing into some grass and rearranging lots of trees. They roamed around the 3.5-acre paddock, fenced in by cement-anchored, 10-foot-tall steel I-beams, and heavy braided wire similar to those used on suspension bridges.

They seem very happy, and the  zoo keepers are most certain this was the right move for these amazing animals! So if they are happy, I'm happy.

TV host and cooking guru Rachel Ray has gone under the knife. Ray underwent the procedure last week. According to Ray's rep, Charlie Dougiello, "Rachael decided to have a benign cyst removed from her vocal cord."
Thank goodness she finalLy decided to take care of this. I was seriously unable to watch her shows.  Her dull humor and the sound of her voice gave me  headaches.  I can only put up with one or the other when it comes to this woman.
Not even the pic below would get me to watch her if she continued to 'bless' me with that awful voice.
Is this really necessary for Rachel Ray? Does she really have to take half of her clothes off  and pose for us? She's a multi-millionare.....
Thoughts?
