Chris Brown gay slur

Troubled singer Chris Brown spent the weekend in a Washington, D.C. jail cell after he was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with assaulting a man. Under D.C. law, scofflaws must sit in jail all weekend until they go before a judge on Monday.

According to a report on gossip blog TMZ.com, the incident happened around 4:30 a.m. outside a D.C. hotel where Brown was staying. Two women approached the singer and asked for a photo. While taking the photo with the women, a man photobombed the picture. A fight ensued and Brown allegedly punched the man in the face — breaking his nose.

That’s the victim’s story. Brown’s camp is telling a different story. They say the victim tried to enter the star’s chartered bus. Both Brown and his bodyguard were arrested.

Facebook policy change

Social networking giant Facebook has announced a new change in its policy that will allow advertisers to use your name, original content, Personal data and your photos in their online advertisements without your permission and without compensation to you.

The announcement comes on the heels of a legal settlement earlier this week that saw Facebook pay out over $20 million to Facebook members whose names and images were used in ads without their permission. Under the terms of the settlement each user will receive $15 in compensation.

Prior to the new change, Facebook members were allowed to choose privacy settings that blocked the use of their name and images in advertising on the social network. Those privacy settings have now been removed.

Facebook has reworded the policy to inform users that your face and name CAN be used in advertisements going forward — without your permission.

Stacey Dean Rambold

The winds of change are swirling in America. Before President Obama was elected in 2008, men who had sex with underage girls were given lengthy jail sentences. But the president’s gay agenda has ushered in a new era of social tolerance that no sane American could have ever imagined.

Yellowstone County district Judge G. Todd Baugh sentenced former high school teacher Stacey Dean Rambold to 15 years in prison, with all but 31 days suspended, because the girl looked older than her chronological age.
