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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Don't Mess With Texas: Report A Litterer

If there is one thing I have been guilty of, it's littering.  Yes, I will confess.  When I was in my twenties and early thirties I threw my cigarette butts out the window after I was done smoking.  Fortunately for me, this all stopped when a passenger threw out a Snicker's bar wrapper out my window and we ended up getting a $250 ticket for it.

But today, I will report your ass!  Yep, the most envied state in the union has given me the opportunity to report you!  And I say this now, because as I was driving my brand new car home after work one day, an idiot (me in past life), threw a cigarette butt out his window and it landed on my hood.  I was not a very happy camper.  I was furious.

Click on the image above and follow the instructions.

Here's what to do

So what can you do when you see trash blowing in the wind and eventually landing on the side of our highways? Instead of delivering your own method of justice, we suggest turning the litterer in through the Texas Department of Transportation’s Report a Litterer Program. It’s an anonymous way to gently remind litterbugs they Don’t mess with Texas.

1. Keep all hands in the vehicle and take some notes

When you see litter thrown or flying out of a vehicle, intentionally or accidentally, take down the following information—license plate number, make and color of vehicle, date and time, location, who tossed the litter, and what was tossed. Be as accurate as possible and submit:
