    A West Virginia woman died after suffering a “fat embolism” while undergoing plastic surgery to increase the size of her gluteal region.  Heather Meadows, a 29-year-old mother of two, was killed by fat particles that entered her bloodstream through a vein during a lipid transfer procedure. The fat particles clogged arteries in her heart and lungs, causing cascading organ failure and death. She was taken to an emergency room after going into cardiac arrest during the cosmetic surgery and was pronounced dead on arrival. This fat transfer procedure is common in what is called a “Brazilian butt lift,” where liposuction...

    Months before Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter said the Pentagon would take steps toward allowing transgender people to serve openly in the military, Army Staff Sgt. Patricia King last year became what she believes is the first openly transgender member of the infantry. While official Pentagon policy still forbids openly transgender personnel, her commanders have been supportive, she said. King even purchased a female dress Army service uniform, anticipating that she would be able to wear it soon. “I made a decision that owning that uniform was important to me, and I believe that our leadership is going to do...

    The average state employee is not at work the equivalent of about one month out of the year, according to an annual report from the Michigan Civil Service Commission. The days off include 10.2 days of sick leave and 17.7 annual leave days, which includes vacation time. ForTheRecord says: State employees were on the job about half a day more in the 2014-15 fiscal year than the previous year. In the 2013-2014 fiscal year, state employees took 10.7 days of sick leave in addition to 17.7 days of annual leave.

    Cameras swarmed around abortion supporters trying to interrupt this year’s annual March for Life, but will journalists report an event that shows groups like Planned Parenthood in a bad light? During the 2016 March for Life Friday, a few dozen pro-abortion activists staged a “die-in” by lying down outside the U.S. Supreme Court to represent women dying from back-alley abortions. It was the second year straight where radical protesters tried to halt the thousands who came to D.C. to speak for the voiceless. Last year, the group’s behavior caused arrests at the march. The group Stop Patriarchy took credit for...

    Forget being transgender like Caitlyn Jenner or transracial like Rachel Dolezal, there’s a new “trans” frontier: people who are transage. In an interview with the gay news site The Daily Xtra, Stefonknee (formerly Paul) Wolscht details his struggles with being a male-to-female transgender person. The Daily Xtra video, however, glosses over a tiny bit of important information about Wolscht: he thinks he is actually a six year-old girl—not just a woman, but a six year-old girl—stuck in the body of a 50-something man. At age 46, Wolscht deserted his wife and his seven children to live his “true” life. “There’s...

    **SNIP** If profiteering from the rigged system is bad, how much worse is it that the government itself reported twice since July that basic information to determine enrollment and subsidy eligibility was not verified by the federal Health Insurance Marketplace or insurance exchanges examined in California and Kentucky? To test the system, investigators submitted 10 fictitious applications. All 10 were approved. One study concluded the government "could not verify" $2.8 billion in financial assistance payments through April 2014. Central planners never can include enough protections and contingencies to thwart self-interested human behavior. Neither can Washington foresee how markets will behave...

For example, asking "How tall is Bruce Jenner" will get you the straightforward response of "Caitlyn Jenner is 6'2 tall." The question "What gender is Bruce Jenner?" prompts "The answer is female."

Probably not even in the worst horror movie, but Rihanna’s new seven minute music video (WARNING: Highly Graphic Imagery) somehow manages to fit in every one of these things. “Bitch Better Have My Money” tells the story of a sadistic woman (Rihanna), her accountant, and the accountant’s blonde-model girlfriend. The end is bad – Rihanna murders the accountant for not ‘having her money.’ But most of the video doesn’t even focus on this. Instead, it depicts Rihanna kidnapping and abusing the nameless blonde,...

It can be found in America because police terrorize blacks every day. He was referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which has beheaded journalists and brutally executed Westerners and others. "My ISIS is the police," Chambers, an independent, said, adding police can get away with shooting people if...

The poll was done by Denno Research.

The paid leave would be between 40 to 72 hours annually, depending on the size of the business. But an advocate for small business owners and...

Frank Bruni, writing in Sunday’s New York Times, suggests that the video “positions [Hillary Clinton] first and foremost as all woman. The references are incessant,” and is part of an effort by Clinton strategists to position their candidate as the woman’s candidate. Leaving...

According to the Boston Herald, the state believes the plan will cost $2.6 million per year based on figures from California and Vermont. Patrick has said the policy will make Massachusetts more equal, as transgender surgeries and hormone therapies are being included as...

    “It just comes down to love. I mean, if you love your child then you should do anything in the world for your child. And it’s as simple and as pure as that.” This is not parental love.

Parental love prepares a child for adulthood–momentary happiness has little to do with it.Parental love sees beyond what a child currently wants, or thinks he wants, and gives him what he needs. What this child needs is unconditional love and a chance for his brain to mature and his...

    India is the dirtiest country I have ever been to. I have heard people say that Pakistan, which is to the west and Bangladesh, to the east, are worse, but that is probably beyond the limits of my imaginatio n. In two months in India, I went from south to north, visiting some tourist towns that I had read about. I also went by train and bus to countless towns and open fields that weren’t so famous, and everywhere there were people had something in common — dirty, messy and stank. Interestingly, I also saw countless foreigners having a great...

    Political anaylst Charlie Cook bills himself as "non-partisan and independent." But on today's Morning Joe, Cook couldn't curb his enthusiasm for Chris Christie. Cook said of Christie that there is "testosterone coming out of every more pore in his body" and that Christie's attitude "inoculates him against being called a RINO, pantywaist liberal Republican." For good measure, Cook said he would "pay money" to see Christie reach down the throat and pull the lungs out of Tea Party member daring to call Christie a liberal! View the video here.
