Shane Farnan, Supreme Court Reporter - Talk Radio News Service & Jo Deutsch, Freedom to Marry, join Thom Hartmann. Today - the Supreme Court held its second straight day of hearings on same-sex marriage. Is the Defense of Marriage Act dead? And why is John Boehner using your and my tax dollars to hire private lawyers to defend it? Isn't successful activism the reason the court is even hearing DOMA? Lone Liberal Rumble - Is the GOP now Freaking out over Sequestration Cameron Seward, Heritage Foundation & Patrick Howley, The Daily Caller, join Thom Hartmann. Crazy Alert! Tyrannosaurus Rex had the kinkiest sex life ever - take a look... Thom Hartmann's crazy alert Former Rep. Bob Ney - How Boehner & Pelosi could change politics forever Former Rep. Bob Ney, Sideswiped: Lessons Learned Courtesy of the Hit Men of Capitol Hill, joins Thom Hartmann. Earlier in the program - we told you how the Supreme Court heard oral arguments today in the case of United States v. Windsor - which challenges the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. We also told you how the Justice Department - the federal agency empowered to enforce the laws of the United States - openly disagrees with the Act and has decided not to defend its constitutionality. Instead - the Bipartisan Legal Action Group - a House of Representatives legal body - is defending the law's constitutionality. But - there's a strong possibility that this case would have never made it to the Supreme Court - if it weren't for Republican gerrymandering efforts across the nation. America's Latest Penis Enhancer...the AR-15 Assault Rifle People around the world are wondering out loud why America has a gun problem when Canada and Europe don't. Canadians and Europeans watch the same violent movies, and many Canadians and Swiss have even easier access to guns than most Americans. But only America seems to have so many men buying guns, hoarding guns, and discharging guns. So, what would Freud say about all of this?

ActualidadRT 28/3/2013-Una brasileña puede ser la mayor médica asesina del mundo,Fuego de mortero deja varios muertos en la Universidad de Damasco


El caso más grave de médicos asesinos podría haberse producido en Brasil. La investigación de la actividad de la doctora Virginia Soares de Souza revela que esta puede haber matado a unos 300 pacientes para liberar camas en la unidad de cuidados intensivos del Hospital Evangélico en la sureña ciudad de Curitiba. En todos los casos los pacientes murieron de la misma manera: se les administraban relajantes musculares y se les reducía el suministro de oxígeno, provocándoles la muerte por asfixia. De Souza fue detenida en febrero por sospechas sobre ciertas muertes en el hospital pero la investigación está arrojando resultados espeluznantes. Los investigadores no descartan que pueda haber más casos porque en los últimos siete años han muerto 1.700 pacientes en la unidad de cuidados intensivos. Si se confirman los casos que se le imputan, el número de muertes de la médica brasileña superará el del doctor Harold Shipman, médico inglés que asesinó a 215 pacientes. Una brasileña puede ser la mayor médica asesina del mundo Fuego de mortero deja varios muertos en la Universidad de Damasco Fuegos de mortero han sacudido este jueves el campus de la Universidad de Damasco, Siria. De acuerdo con los primeros datos, el edificio más afectado es el de la facultad de Arquitectura. Según la televisión estatal siria, hay varios muertos entre los estudiantes. El número exacto de víctimas se desconoce por el momento, pero se da una cifra aproximada de 12 muertos y más de 20 heridos. Cabe recordar que el pasado 26 de marzo la Universidad de Damasco sufrió otro ataque de morteros. En aquella ocasión el bombardeo tuvo como blanco la facultad de Derecho y dejó al menos cuatro víctimas mortales, entre ellas una escolar, y 41 heridos.
