Yes…You correctly read the headline.

According to a Salon.com article, the above mentioned act proposed by a lawyer (someone should check his credentials or at the least his sanity) would punish “the abominable crime against nature known as buggery, called also sodomy” with a bullet to the brain (or death “by any other convenient method”) and also mandates a decade imprisonment plus permanent relocation from California for anyone who advocates LGTBQ rights to an audience that includes minors.” The initiative needs 365k valid signatures to make it to next year’s ballot. As absurd at it might seem the state might have to allow this debauchery to proceed due to the state’s 1974 Political Reform Act which sets procedures (including a $200 fee) that allows for citizens to propose acts for state ballots.

ABC News. (yahoo news)

I just read an article on Yahoo.com about a mom who claims United Airlines humiliated her family. The family of six was returning to Newark, New Jersey from the Dominican Republic when they were approached by a flight attendant about a safety concern. Elit Kirschenbaum’s 3-year-old daughter, Ivy, has Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and is a stroke survivor. The family bought Ivy a seat (in the economy section) because they were aware of federal regulations requiring anyone older than 2 to purchase their own seat. Read More…

Sony Pictures, a multi-billion dollar corporation, was hacked by most likely North Korea. Sony planned to release a comedy starring Franco and Rogen as secret agents tasked to go to North Korea and murder the communist leader, Kim Jung Un (during their scheduled interview with him).
