Clicking "Like" on Facebook Now Protected Under the Constitution

Hitting the "Like" button on Facebook is an element of free speech protected by the US constitution, a federal court ruled Wednesday, in a case closely watched by employment lawyers.

The US Court of Appeals based in Richmond, Virginia, made the judgment in the case of a Virginia sheriff's department worker who claimed he was fired for exercising his free speech rights -- in this case "liking" a political opponent of his boss.

"His conduct qualifies as speech," the court said in a 81-page decision that sent the case back to a lower court for review of those issues.

Criminal Stuck In East Side Veterinary Air Duct
Milwaukee police arrested a 19-year-old man who was apparently trying to steal prescription drugs from the Small Animal Hospital on the east side Sunday.  

Officers were able to locate him because he got stuck in one of the building’s air conditioning ducts.
 
According to Police, the suspect:
“Stripped down, bare naked and squeezed into the ventilation shaft with a hammer and a flashlight, presumably one in each hand”

The suspect told police he was looking for drugs, presumably painkillers and sedatives used to treat sick animals. 

He was stuck there for 11 hours, and was found Monday morning when employees heard him yelling from the above air ducts.  

The whole ordeal caused about $5,000 worth of damage to the ventilation system of the Animal Hospital.

Why were people protesting outside the Packers game?
Protesters were seen outside Lambeau Field before yesterday’s Packers game.  Several are members of Wisconsin’s Oneida and Menomonee tribes. They say Washington’s team name and logo represent harmful stereotypes.  They showed up 4 hours before the Packers victory yesterday, in the pouring rain holding signs reading “Washington Team: stop trying to put lipstick on a pig! Your “R” word is racist”

“The Washington Redskins are in a place where they could take a little leadership here, change a logo, stereotype. A lot of corporations, a lot of entities change their logos and they usually continue in business. The name is a derogatory name. It’s a racial slur. It goes back to the bounty hunting era of the Colonial Period. This particular logo is a severed head logo. It certainly isn’t a symbol that should be used by the football team that is in our nation’s capital,” Barbara Munson said.

A bunch of records were also set yesterday, attendance: 78,000!  Aaron Rodgers tied an all time Packers passing record, and James Starks had the Packers first 100 yard rushing game since 2010!  Way to go, Pack.

Parenting: They're Doing It Right

Last month, a dad in Utah wasn't happy about the short shorts his teenage daughter was wearing . . . so he tried to shame her by making his OWN cut-off jean shorts, and wearing them all over town.  Eventually the photos of him got online, and he says his daughter HAS started dressing a bit more appropriately.


PHOTO: YouTube

Then there was the mom from California, who was upset her daughter was Twerking, so she made her hold this sign up in traffic.

Careful kids.  Now your parents can punish you, and the whole WORLD will know of your hijinx.

Wisconsin Golf Course Apologizes For "9/11" Special

We all let Memorial Day become about mattress specials and getting hammered, instead of honoring fallen Americans.  And we should all be ashamed.  So we are NOT about to do that to 9/11.

 

On Monday, Tumbledown Trails golf course in Verona, Wisconsin published ads for a SEPTEMBER 11TH SPECIAL . . . nine holes of golf for $9.11, or 18 holes with a golf cart for only 19.11.

 

But the ad got passed around on social media, and Tumbledown Trails got the BACKLASH you'd expect for EXPLOITING 9/11.

 

They say their goal was to remind people of the significance of the day.

 

So they apologized, canceled the special and the ads, and said they'd donate any profits today to a 9/11 memorial fund.

SORRY MILEY CYRUS BUT YOU'RE OUT!!!
Miley Cyrus' serial twerking isn't only turning off and losing the support of fiancee Liam, Disney channel finatics and millions of fans, she has lost the privilege of gracing the cover of Vogue.

According to Anna Wintour, editor in chief of American Vogue magazine, her original ploy was to promote Miley as a new fashion icon; however, after Miley's recent display of tasteless behavior at the VMA's, Wintour has decided to drop the singer's December cover shot completely!


I guess that excuse of 'we can't stop, we won't stop" doesn't work for everyone Miley!!! Sorry boo!

Super Bowl

JUNK DRAWER: Kanye & Kim spoiling North West
No word on whether or not Alley will spoil little Hudson like this, but...

No big shocker here:  KANYE WEST and KIM KARDASHIAN are already spoiling their newborn daughter North.  According to "OK!" magazine, the kid already has twenty $800 cashmere blankets, a 1,300-square-foot nursery and a photographer who comes to take pictures of her twice a week.  Oh, and she also owns a tiara and a $200,000 ruby pendant.

Baby Bling is the new rage, apparently.

I hope you get some comfort knowing you're not the only person constantly FORGETTING things.  Of course, soon you'll forget I said that.  But until that happens, you can be comforted.

JUNK DRAWER: Celebs getting knocked up, and tying the knot!
Guess who's Preggo?  

In Touch Weekly" 
says that 43-year-old GWEN STEFANI is pregnant again.  If this is true, this will be the third for Gwen and her husband GAVIN ROSSDALE, who's 47.  They already have two sons . . . 7-year-old Kingston and 5-year-old Zuma.  Gavin is also father to 24-year-old model DAISY LOWE.

And who's walking down the aisle again?

Are you a GERMOPHOBE??

When you're in a public bathroom, the last thing you want to do is TOUCH ANYTHING.  And apparently a lot of us go to great lengths to make sure we don't.

 

 

According to a new survey of over 1,000 U.S. adults, 64% of us use our foot to flush the toilet . . . 60% use a paper towel to touch the door handle . . . 37% use one to turn the faucet on and off . . . and 48% use our hip to open the door.

 

 

The study also looked at how often we wash our hands, and it shouldn't surprise you that women are better about it than men are.  74% of women said they ALWAYS wash up, compared to 60% of men.

 

 

And 38% of men said they frequently see other guys leave the bathroom without washing, compared to 25% of women.

 

 

But overall, NONE of us are great about it.  70% of the people surveyed admitted that they sometimes just RINSE their hands, and don't actually use soap.
