Navy shitbird decides that she didn’t have to go back to work after having a baby.
Watch how she gets a lawyer saying she was mentally incapacitated by post-partum depression and gets an honorable discharge.
Meanwhile this bitch gets “equal pay” and will be hand-held dutring the entire process to include mental health counseling while if a new father tried pulling this stunt hew’d be in the brig immediately.
She’s a beaner, too.
And if any cocksucker starts whining about how she needs to be there for the baby then someone ought to tell the scrunt the brat’s got to have a father somewhere to take care of it.
A 24-year-old U.S. Navy sailor who had a baby in August was arrested and remains on a military hold after being accused of deserting her post, court records show.
Ana Lucia Gnecco was arrested Wednesday at her parents’ home in Hollywood, Florida, after failing to report on January 14 to her base in Portsmouth, Virginia, where she is a seaman quartermaster and worked in the reception and medical support at the Naval Medical Center.
Her father, Armando Rodriguez, told the SunSentinel he didn’t know she left the Navy earlier that she should have.
‘She basically went AWOL; that’s what the Navy is claiming,’ he told the newspaper.
The arrest was the last resort, said Christina Johnson, a Navy public affairs officer for the medical center. ‘She was in contact with her command and with the Navy’s arm that would bring her back to duty. All efforts were made to get her back to work, but she chose to stay there.’
When someone misses a return day by 30 days, ‘it’s considered desertion’, Johnson said.
She said she couldn’t comment further and didn’t know what discipline Gnecco might face.
Gnecco’s father said the baby could be a reason his daughter didn’t return to the post. ‘We could assume that having a baby might not go well with serving in the military.’
Rodriguez is hoping the Navy will discharge her.
‘I hope that she goes back up there and they have a hearing and she is released,’ he said. ‘There is no point in keeping her.’
Rodriguez said that he and the rest of the family – including sisters and her mother – have helped with the baby. The child’s father also lives in Broward County.
Gnecco had a more immediate problem on Thursday when she appeared before Broward County Judge Michael Davis for a bond hearing. She said she’s breastfeeding her daughter and needed a breast pump.
She said she had spoken with a doctor at the jail and was told there was nothing they could do. Later, the judge told the newspaper his assistant bought a breast pump for $42.39 and gave it to Gnecco.
1. she was on drugs
2. she’s ugly as hell
3. she’s fat

Police said a naked woman broke into a Connecticut church and went on a rampage with a fire extinguisher, destroying items inside Wednesday.
Stamford police said witnesses flagged down an officer after seeing a naked woman smash the side window and enter St. Clements Church on Fairfield Avenue at about 5 p.m.
The officer looked inside and saw the woman, later identified as 32-year-old Celina Kelly, going on a tirade with a fire extinguisher.
A priest, who lives in a section of the church, confronted Kelly in the basement as she was kicking in a door to his living quarters.
The priest was able to escape during the ordeal, and he opened the door to the chapel so officers could get inside.
Police arrested Kelly without incident.
“She was obviously under the influence of some type of narcotic and admitted to smoking marijuana laced with a chemical shortly before going on her rampage,” Stamford police said in a news release.
Kelly was taken to the hospital for treatment. She’s facing charges of burglary and criminal mischief. Her bond was set at $20,000.
The Stamford Police Department credits its programmed patrols, a program that has officers stop at all places of worship across the city.
On an aesthetic level, I agree.
However most would be are udders on morbidly obese women’s tits.
But another part of me says if titties become banal and commonplace, what mystery is there for little boys? What enticement? What pent up desire to get to second base on a date?
Go to the link and watch the video to witness metrosexuals and weirdos argue for freeing the ta-tas. Pay special attention to the douchebag who says “any law that says “women can’t” is unconstitutional.”
How about the laws that say men can’t ogle women? Whistle at them? Walk around with their balls out?
Same thing, I think, because he’s now saying women can go bottomless.
A federal judge has ordered the city of Fort Collins to stop enforcing a policy that bans women from showing their breasts in public.
It started with one woman asking, “If men can go topless, why can’t women?”
“It’s sexist because it specifically discriminates against female breasts,” Brittiany Hoagland said in 2015.
Hoagland, Samantha Six and a group called Free the Nipple — Fort Collins made headlines across the country when they protested on the corner of College Avenue and Mulberry Street with nothing but “opaque dressings” covering their nipples.
The Fort Collins City Council asked for public input but ended up voting to keep the topless ban for women in place.
But the council added two exceptions: Breastfeeding mothers and girls younger than 10 years old.
After the decision, Hoagland, Six and Free the Nipple — Fort Collins filed a civil lawsuit against the city, claiming the policy violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
On Wednesday, Federal Judge R. Brooke Jackson ordered an injunction preventing police and the city from enforcing the ban.
“The court essentially agreed that any statute containing the concept that ‘Women are prohibited from …’ is likely unconstitutional,” attorney David Lane said in a statement.
In his ruling, Jackson disagreed with the argument that topless females might distract drivers and cause traffic issues that disrupt public order.
“[I]t appears that underlying Fort Collins’ belief that topless females are uniquely disruptive of public order is [a] negative stereotype … that society considers female breasts primarily as objects of sexual desire whereas male breasts are not,” Jackson said.
The judge cited a researcher as stating that sexual objectification of the female breast leads to negative cognitive, behavioral, and emotional outcomes and contributes to higher rates of sexual assault and violence.
The judge also disagreed with the argument that seeing a woman’s breasts could harm children.
“Nor has Fort Collins provided any meaningful evidence that the mere sight of a female breast endangers children. The female breast, after all, is one of the first things a child sees,” Jackson wrote.
“It seems, then, that children do not need to be protected from the naked female breast itself but from the negative societal norms, expectations, and stereotypes associated with it.”
Lane called the decision “Another example of the federal courts enforcing the Constitution in the face of the police and the City fighting against the Bill of Rights.”
10 CC: “OVERDRAFT IN OVERDRIVE”
Part of me has a real problem with that.
It is not the right of doctors to make that call. If the person has insurance (which obviously has no such restrictions on that person’s personal behaviors) then their job is to operate.
If it’s a case of someone uninsured I think that’s different. If they’ve refused to pay for insurance or refuse to change their lifestyles (the standard, “obviously enough money to drink or smoke but not use it to buy insurance”) …. tough shit.
An irate man contacted me recently to complain he’d been turned down for back surgery because he’s a smoker.
“It’s just not right,” said the Charlotte man, who suffers from chronic hip and leg pain. “I need this surgery. It’s to the point where I can’t walk around the block with my dogs.”
He acknowledged smoking is a “bad habit,” but after 35 years, he’s not sure he can quit. And he doesn’t think he should have to.
“It didn’t used to be this way,” he said. “Everybody’s got on their little righteous path.… My grandfathers on both sides smoked their entire lives. They didn’t die until one of them was 92, and one of them was 88.”
No doubt, genetics play a huge role in how healthy we are and how long we live. But personal behavior is also a big factor.
Most of us know that smoking is linked to heart disease and cancer. But in recent years, research has shown that smoking also inhibits wound healing because it decreases blood flow. As a result, smokers don’t do as well as non-smokers after having spinal fusion surgery and joint replacements.
One study found that smokers who got joint replacement surgery had an 80 percent higher chance than nonsmokers of needing repeat surgery because of complications from infection.
For this reason, surgeons who do those procedures have begun asking patients to quit smoking – or at least stop for four to six months before and after surgery.
“We want the best results possible,” said Dr. Bryan Edwards, head of orthopedic surgery for Novant Health. “We’re not denying you a surgery. We’re preventing you from having a complication.
“If you’re doing surgery, you’re trying to get the bones to unite, and if you don’t have good blood flow, the results aren’t as good,” Edwards said. “I tell patients, ‘Complications from surgery are far worse than whatever condition you have now. If you’ve got an infected back that doesn’t fuse, you don’t want that.’ ”
Unlike the man who said he was turned away by a surgeon, most patients are counseled about the risks and referred for help, such as smoking cessation classes. They’re not expected to quit cold turkey.
“I expect there may have been a miscommunication” in the case of the irate patient, said Dr. Leo Spector, a specialist in spine surgery at OrthoCarolina. “A lot of things obviously boil down to the physician and patient conversation.”
Smoking isn’t the only behavior patients may be asked to change as part of “surgical optimization” – the doctors’ term for getting patients in the best health possible before an operation to improve the outcome. Obesity and diabetes also decrease the chances of a successful surgery.
Spector said it’s part of a national trend for doctors to run down a checklist of behaviors in preparation for elective surgery. Before spinal fusion, Spector said he might tell a patient: “Listen, I want you to stop smoking, but if you can’t stop smoking, at least cut it in half. A two-pack-a-day smoker is going to have a higher risk (of complications) than a two-cigarette-a-day smoker.”
If patients are overweight or have diabetes, he might refer them for nutrition counseling and even bariatric surgery to help them lose weight and get their glucose levels under control. Spector said he’d ask patients with back pain to stop smoking and try physical therapy for three months to see if the pain would go away without surgery.
“Have I refused to operate because they wouldn’t stop smoking?” he asked. “Yes.”
Helping patients achieve better surgical outcomes will also help doctors as the health care payment system continues to evolve.
Today, most doctors continue to be paid in a fee-for-service system, which means they’re reimbursed for each appointment, test or procedure. Perversely, they make more money if a patient has complications and requires extra care.
In Charlotte, some surgeons who perform spine surgery and knee and hip replacements have begun using a “value-based” system that means accepting a single “bundled payment” for each patient encounter. This gives doctors an incentive to provide the best care for each patient.
If all goes well and care is delivered for less than the contract price, the doctor or hospital keeps the savings. If there are complications and the patient needs more care, the doctor or hospital absorbs the extra cost.
So, operating on smokers, with potentially expensive complications, could hurt the bottom line for physicians.
At OrthoCarolina, Spector said doctors agree that all patients who register for the bundled payment plan must go through “surgical optimization” so they’re as healthy as possible before surgery. At some point, insurance companies may even begin to refuse to pay for elective surgeries on smokers.
“A year from now, I’ll probably be at a point where I would require all my patients to stop smoking,” Spector said. “Currently, I evaluate it on a case-by-case basis. Over time, we’re going to feel comfortable being a little more stringent with our patients about these modifiable risks.”
Edwards said he finds many patients “don’t take it well at first” when he advises them to quit smoking or lose weight. But many of them thank him later.
“Everybody needs something in their life to motivate them,” he said. “Usually, if the patient makes the commitment to stop and gets through the procedure, I find the majority of them just stop smoking.”
British boy who was being treated for cancer in the US faces possible mandatory return to England before his treatment is completed.
I am not worried about what will happen to him as I am sure they’ll find a way to keep him here.
What does bother me, however, is…. WHY THE FUCK don’t the Brits have this treatment?
Holy fucking shit! It’s 2017! What is their problem?
And why does this now become out problem? Why are we now made out to be the bad guy because of the ineptitude of British medicine and government?
Where is the outrage in the British community for NOT having this treatment?
A nine-year-old cancer patient may be forced to leave America before finishing the only treatment that could save his life.
Alex Goodwin traveled from Leicester in England to Kansas late last year in a desperate bid to cure his advanced bone cancer.
He had been dismissed by NHS doctors for months before scans revealed his joint and muscle pain was actually caused by Ewing’s Sarcoma.
Finally, last month, he was wheeled into the operating theater at the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City.
Though doctors removed the cancer, he still needs months of proton beam therapy – the highly-specialized form of radiotherapy that was famously denied to six-year-old British brain cancer sufferer Ashya King, who had to fly to Spain to be cured.
However, late last night Alex’s father tweeted that they have been told there is an ‘issue’ with their immigration status that could force them to leave in April – eight weeks before the end of his treatment.
Alex’s issues began around Christmas 2015, when he started struggling to walk. By April 2016, he was forced to use crutches as he lost the strength in his right leg. And yet, he was repeatedly misdiagnosed and dismissed by hospitals.
In June 2016, tests revealed he had cancer.
His only chance at life was an incredibly complicated operation to remove his cancer-infected thigh bone – and due to the advanced stage of his disease, it could only be done in America.
Finally, last month, he was wheeled into the operating theater at the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City.
The immigration issue deals a crushing blow to the family and the medical team, who were overjoyed and optimistic after the operation last month.
‘He’s a champion,’ orthopedic oncology surgeon Howard Rosenthal told the Kansas City Star after completing the hours-long operation.
‘He’s going to make it through, he just has a tough road ahead.’
Before this, Alex’s treatment had been tough and varying in success.
Ewing’s sarcoma is a rare type of bone cancer that affects children and teenagers, widely believed to be caused by rapid bone growth.
Fewer than 30 children in the UK develop the condition each year.
If caught early, there is an 80 percent cure rate. Once it spreads to the muscles and tissues, the disease becomes incredibly difficult to reach using traditional methods.
Despite instantly starting chemotherapy, Alex’s disease continued to spread. By the end of the treatment, he relied on a wheelchair to move around.
It meant that he was left with a significantly-reduced chance of survival.
Crucially, it reduced the treatment options available to him on the NHS.
Although Ewing’s is notoriously susceptible to radiotherapy, the best kind of this treatment (proton beam therapy) is not available in the UK.
It is the same treatment that famously cured six-year-old British brain cancer sufferer Ashya King, who was forced to fly to Spain amid a high profile battle that captured the nation’s attention.
Seeking advice worldwide, Alex’s mother and police officer father from Dunton Bassett, Leicestershire, were directed to Kansas City.
The treatment and travel would cost upwards of £120,000, which they managed to raise through charity events – including a music video performed by his father PC Jeff Goodwin and other Warwickshire officers.
In his time in Kansas City the precocious little boy has been winning over the hospital staff with his vibrant sense of humor.
Speaking shortly before his operation, Alex told the Star: ‘I just want everyone to be happy, keep those positive thoughts up, and have a nice day.
‘And don’t worry, all those people.
‘Whoever loves me, and anyone else, I’ll always be in your heart.’
Alex’s first treatment plan involved the resection of his right femur (or, thigh bone), hip replacement surgery and reconstructive surgery of his pelvic bone and acetabulum.
As Alex explains himself in an interview with the Star, most of his muscles was worn away by the chemotherapy.
The idea is to replace Alex’s femur with a telescopic prosthesis that can be electro magnetized to lengthen as his body grows.
The procedure is complex and risky.
His next step is proton beam therapy – a highly effective form of radiotherapy that is not yet available in the UK.
It uses a high energy beam of protons rather than high energy X-rays, delivering targeted doses to the cancerous areas.
The treatment has been particularly effective treating cancers of the skull and the spine.
Its meticulous precision has been shown to effectively attack tumors while leaving surrounding muscles and tissues unaffected.
