Like Quinn, de Blasio also saw the political value of a connection to Gaga and her online network of more than 40 million Twitter followers. The campaign seized the opening. On Sept. 5, de Blasio and his son, Dante, visited Germanotta’s upper West Side restaurant, Joanne Trattoria. There, they thanked Germanotta for his support and posed for pictures that were quickly posted online."

  2. Great to see that many of the terrorists slaughtering people in Kenya and slaughtering the world's elephants......are "Americans"....non-white immigrants that were let into the country by "compassionate" liberals who just could not say no to them and who then coddled them and re-settled them once they were here, only to have it blow up in their faces.....again.

  3. I was really moved by the story of the gay dads that adopted 14 kids, particular since Arizona governor Jan Brewer signed a law giving adoption preference to straight married couples. I can't imagine what kind of legal battle they must have gone through. They are two amazing fathers and men.

    Just don't read the comments.

    PLEASE don't put the words "ATOMIC BOMB" and "LYNNE CHENEY" in such close proximity again.

  5. God bless the superdads and their children! Amazing story.

  6. @ "When will we/they ever learn?"

    When you convert to RADICAL Islam. Then you can enslave women and execute "effeminate" Gay men. You'd be in heaven...but whatchu' gonna' do with the heavenly female virgins you'll get? Trade them in for boys? I don't think so.

    That comes with the 72 virgins.....

  9. Wow.

    I was so busy responding to the Queen Rick of the Ayran Nation that I hadn't read the heart wrenching and heart warming story of the fathers in Arizona. They are wonderful men. And they've saved lives of those children.

    Gay men who are in a loving and committed relationship can manage taking children out of foster care, and giving them a chance at life. I've heard of a few single Gay men who've done it on their own (without a partner). I'd be terrified. But in every case, I've heard that the children appreciate that they were given a home by their Gay fathers and Lesbian mothers.

  11. I would argue that the hacked iPhone fingerprint technology is just the tip of the iceberg. What's potentially much more serious are some of the legal aspects that haven't been thought out of using biometrics as passwords on mobile phones that many civil liberties lawyers are now warning about. For example, you're at a protest and are arrested. A police officer forces you to open your iPhone with your fingerprint.

  12. You think because it's an analog hack, you shouldn't worry. This is merely the first, easiest hack. The digital hacks are of course coming.

    Never, never put anything of value on your i-anything, or your android-anything.

  15. In case anyone is wondering and didn't check the source, the gay Philly cop "sexual harassment" was actually giving him bad assignments etc. because he was known to be gay, not hitting on him. I don't think that's sexual harassment actually.

  16. But the most important story, the threat of imminent climate catastrophe goes uncommented. We really, all of us, need to take this seriously or all the kids we gay folk are taking in will be living on a hellish planet. (350 ppm is the accepted safe amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere).
