When His Owner Met A Tragic End, This Dog Refused To Leave His Side

Dogs have been man’s most loyal and protective companion since they were domesticated thousands of years ago.

They have been by our side through thick and thin, and to this day, we rely on them for protection and companionship.

This man’s dog took that relationship up a notch.

When he was tragically killed on the streets, his dog came to his side and wouldn’t leave. Not only that, but if anyone came close to his owner, this dog would start barking in order to protect him. What an incredible bond.

This video contains some graphic images.

Get ready to grab some tissues…

There is no denying the special friendship these two had…and their loss breaks my heart.

The Issue With Halloween Is That You Don’t Know Who’s Faking It And Who’s Crazy

Around 5 a.m. on October 30, two costumed men crashed a Halloween party in San Antonio. One of them was dressed as Freddy Krueger. After a brief argument, he pulled a gun and opened fire, wounding five people.

Halloween has always made me a little nervous. With all the scary costumes about, you never know who’s just having fun and who might actually be unhinged. I always thought it was irrational fear but then I heard this story.

The five injured victims, one woman and four men, are expected to make full recoveries. As of now, the shooters are still at large.

Watch as this news reporter describes the events that led a man dressed as Freddy Krueger to shoot five people.

I was planning to go out this Halloween, but now I’ll probably just stay home and lock my doors.

Here Are The Most Insane Rock Feuds Of All Time. Don’t Cross These Guys!

Music is an art of passion, it takes real genius to express yourself musically. Sometimes, these emotions can get the best of the people… and it will cause them to lash out at other bands. These are some of the most heated disputes and beefs in rock history and let me tell you, it’s not always pretty.

1.) Smashing Pumpkins vs. Pavement

Pavement’s tune, “Range Life” has some choice lyrics about The Smashing Pumpkins. When Bill Corgan, The Smashing Pumpkin’s frontman heard the lyrics he took offense and stating, “People don’t fall in love to Pavement … they put on Smashing Pumpkins or Hole or Nirvana, because these bands actually mean something to them.” Boom, roasted!

2.) Blur vs. Oasis

This rivalry took to the charts at one point in a battle for supremacy. These two bands released singles on the same day in order to prove once and for all who would be the victor (Blur). Oasis’ singer, Noel Gallagher once also famously stated that he wished The members of Blur would, “get AIDS and die.” Harsh.

3.) Guns n’ Roses vs. Nirvana

Axl Rose has been known to have some temper issues and when Nirvana declined their invitation to tour with Guns n’ Roses, Axl felt slighted. Additionally, Cobain said that he thought Guns n’ Roses wrote, “crap music.” Rose didn’t take too kindly to these words, repeatedly threatening Cobain and challenging him to fights numerous times.

4.) Paul McCartney vs. Michael Jackson

In 1985, when The Beatles’ back catalog rights were up for auction, there was a fierce bidding duel between these two. Jackson eventually outbid McCartney, who then felt slighted by the king of pop. He also was peeved when Jackson allowed Nike to use their song, “Revolution” for an ad, which was the first time a Beatles song had been used in an ad.

5.) Arcade Fire vs. The Flaming Lips

These two indie rock giants had it out for each other when Flaming Lips frontman, Wayne Coyne, said this of Arcade Fire, “They have good tunes, but they’re pricks, so f*** em.” He claimed to have seen Arcade Fire treat their roadies poorly and be rude to their audiences. Butler shot back that the Flaming Lips “don’t know” anyone in his band, and eventually, Coyne apologized for the incident, and even admitted, “I like enough of their music.”

6.) Guns n’ Roses vs. Poison

Axl Rose had stated that Poison was a bunch of wannabes and have even crashed their concerts. Poison did once intimidate and threaten one of Guns N’ Roses’ publicists – one of their female publicists – at an L.A. night club. This is one hell of a rivalry.

7.) Kiss vs. Santana

Carlos Santana had some not so kind words for the band that just wants to rock all night and party every day. In 2005, Santana said of Gene Simmons, frontman of Kiss, “He’s not a musician, he’s an entertainer. KISS is Las Vegas entertainment, so he wouldn’t know what music is anyway. That’s why he wears all that stuff.” Ouch!

8.) Jack White vs. The Von Bondies

Oh boy. This one actually got violent. Once a major supporter of the Detroit garage rockers, White helped get the Von Bondies signed and produced their first record. However, things turned sour when Jack and Jason got into a physical altercation. White held his tongue on the Stollsteimer (The Von Bondies singer) issue for many months before claiming that the singer exploited the injuries from the bar fight in order to help the band’s album sales.

Music can be so much more than just a few people playing instruments, it has real passion and sometimes passion gets the best of us. (Now that’s how rock ‘n roll should be.) Share this post if you’re a fan of any of these bands.

Faithful: Beautiful picture as thousands wait in the rain for smoke at the Vatican

Beautiful.

As we reported this morning, the second morning of the papal conclave resulted in black smoke again, signalling no new pope yet.

Fox News analyst Father Jonathan Morris posted a picture yesterday.

Did ‘Catfish’ reveal the freaky dangers of using an Obamaphone? [video]

http://twitter.com/#!/starcasm/status/466769842859945985

“Obama phone” and “Antwane” trended on Twitter this week as MTV aired “Antwane and Tony,” an episode of the reality show “Catfish.”

obama-phone-catfish-antwane

http://twitter.com/#!/KiannaLekael/status/466762507512999937

Here’s the deal: The tale of “Antwane and Tony” started three years ago when they met on an old-school telephone chat line. Their relationship took place via phone calls and Antwane said he had never even seen a picture of Tony. Antwane blamed his “Obamaphone.” It’s a “low-income phone,” he explained, “so you can’t do nothing with them but talk.”

http://twitter.com/#!/CatfishMTV/status/466662196907216896

Freaky spoilers ahead.

http://twitter.com/#!/EverythingJess/status/466768440754069507

Well, not exactly. You see, “Tony” was actually Carmen, Antwane’s cousin. His cousin. She’s the one who got in touch with the “Catfish” producers to express her oh-so-genuine concern about this “Tony” creep.

http://twitter.com/#!/geneyoungpics/status/466769520158179329

OK, so maybe this episode really highlighted the horror of having Carmen in your life. She admitted she catfishes people all the time.

Washington Healthplanfinder sorry for ‘glitch’ that understated premiums

http://twitter.com/#!/WAplanfinder/status/393822676579409920

If you click the link in Washington Healthplanfinder’s tweet, you’ll learn that “some applicants” actually equals 8,000 people. And what was that system error again? According to CBS News, it’s “a serious pricing problem with HealthCare.gov” that “can dramatically underestimate the cost of insurance,” leaving people paying double the price calculated on the website.

The Washington Health Benefit Exchange explains that inconsistent files being shared between Washington’s state exchange and the federal government caused around 8,000 applicants to qualify for higher tax credits than allowed based on income and household size. In other words, thousands are about to learn that insurance through the exchange is going to cost more than they were told.

Forbes’ Scott Gottlieb explains how people are “getting a blatantly false picture of how much the new coverage really costs.”

Figuring out how much premium subsidy an individual or family is entitled to requires that the Healthcare.gov “hub” communicate across servers housed at state Medicaid agencies, the Internal Revenue Service, Health and Human Services, and the Department of Homeland Security (among other federal agencies). That necessary data sharing has proven too much for the site’s architecture to handle.

This is what’s causing so many applications to get kicked out — but what about those applications that make it all the way through? At least half a dozen states have already said publicly that their systems are coming up with the wrong calculations.

It’s a sure bet that some consumers who make it through the web site’s maze, and enroll, will also have their subsidies calculated incorrectly.

Washington Healthplanfinder says those thousands affected eventually will be invited back to complete their “shopping experience” and change their plans. In the meantime, any stories about lower premiums are very likely wrong.

Tamara Holder: ‘All Republicans, or most Republicans, are fat-asses’

http://twitter.com/#!/Liberty_Chick/status/306597575509823489

Either Sean Hannity is having a really good night tonight, or he’s spiking his guests’ water with moonbat juice. Not long after Congressman Keith Ellison embarrassed himself and his state with six minutes of nonsensical ranting, Tamara Holder upped the ante. In a segment dedicated to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s nanny-state food regulations, Holder declared that “all Republicans, or most Republicans, are fat-asses.”

Asked by Hannity whether she was calling him a “fat-ass,” Holder responded, “Well look at you!” Nice to see her adding something constructive to the debate.
