The Google Italy employees were accused of breaking Italian law by allowing the video of bullying of a teenager with Down’s Syndrome to be posted on YouTube in late 2006. Despite the fact that Google removed the video within hours of being notified of its existence, Judge Oscar Magi (pictured) absolved the three of defamation but convicted them of privacy violations. The three executives have received a suspended six-month sentence, while a fourth defendant was acquitted." Google responds.

 roadAmerican Family Association slams CPAC for inviting gays: "For David Keene and the others who run CPAC, natural marriage is not, in their judgment, a fundamental conservative value. This conference, for the sake of truth in advertising, should be relabeled 'The Libertarian Political Action Conference.' It has forfeited any legitimate claim to the 'Conservative' moniker. …

The bottom line here is if conservatives are looking for an annual convocation of genuine conservatives — those who are fiscal, national security and social conservatives — the place to be is the Values Voter Summit."

    I don’t know who that humorless moron who posted the Chelsea Handler tweet is, but I wanted to smother him after reading a few of his posts. Even when I agreed with him I wanted to punch him.

    “Obama did coke and Scott Brown wore pink shorts. Now they’re even?”

    No, the President began with a brain, and it survived.

    I want to thank Kellan Lutz (and reluctantly PETA)for the “Adopt, don’t buy” campaign. All my dogs have been adopted, either shelter dogs or abandoned dogs or abused dogs. I’ve had just about every breed and mixture you can think of at one time or another and they’ve all been great. I have nine dogs now, from a couple of ankle nipping Chihuahua’s (abandoned) to a German Shepherd mix, Doberman, Boxer, German Spitz and Pit-bull mix, all shelter dogs or owner abandoned. They all get along and provide great companionship. There are so many good dogs (and cats) looking for a home there is no need to buy one when adopting is so much better for everyone. Thanks Kellan!

    Absolutely adore J.R. Celski too, but I’m missing his tattoo in the pic! That’s what caught my eye about him in the first place!

    Bob…you’re post perfectly proves why gay people will get in heaven before any “conservative”…as a dog lover, I can promise you a shelter dog who KNOWS it’s life is at your mercy will love you SO much more for giving it a second chance at life and will realize it too.

    Oh! and NEVER under any circumstances trust someone who is not an animal lover, and thats coming from many personal experiences.

    Interesting regarding the AMA/CPAC rift… hopefully the right wing will continue to fracture over opposing views of rhetoric, making the left wing stronger… divide and conquer, baby!

    I have to laugh about American Family and CPAC…what a bunch of losers. First off, aren’t they always spouting off about how they “hate the sin” “love the sinner”? and wasn’t gay marriage low on its list of priorities? I hope these people fizzel out along with the tea partiers. sheesh.
