And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Collect Them All!

Yay, get them while you can!  Collect all 9 cigarette labels being released by the FDA next month!  

Yep, you read this correctly; all you smokers will be seeing these 9 horrific images on your packages of cigarettes starting next month. So if you don't have a cigarette case, you better run out and get one.
Seriously folks, if these images don't make you quit, I don't know what will.  Geezus, these are simply disgusting!  But oh, so very true.  I have to commend the FDA on this new campaign, but I also have to disagree with them.  

Everyone in this country knows that smoking can kill you - even second-hand smoke can kill you, but isn't it every American's right to choose how they want to die?

Then again, is it okay that smokers are killing people around them with their second-hand smoke?

My luck I'd die from your second hand smoke while your lungs stay all nice and pretty well into your 80's. Thankfully you rarely smoke, but still, my body's all kind of f*&ked up. The risk is just too great.
