Jul 5th 2010 12:43AM What I can't imagine them being able to get around with this "strap 'em to a board method" is the FCC regulation about "crash landings," and putting your head between your knees. Yeah, lets see them try that strapped to a board! Seems like at some point the FCC would step in and tell these guys to get a clue.
May 11th 2010 5:01PM That's right, John! They wouldn't post my earlier comment, which was much like yours. Ooh, wouldn't want anyone to think someone had a bad opinion of the First (and I use this term loosely) "Lady." Portions are minimal in school lunchrooms already, at best! She wants to cut it more? Perfect! But she's never SEEN a real school, her kids don't go to one of those!
She needs to put her giant nose where it belongs - in her OWN business - and leave ours alone! Obesity has always been and will always be a problem - some people are predisposed. So punish EVERYONE for it is her answer - right - makes sense.
How bout America going back to what our forefathers FOUGHT for - Government actually GOVERNING - not DICTATING! The government under Obama is an abomination of everything our founding fathers stood for!
Sep 1st 2009 7:15AM Okay, the talk about the Miley Cyrus pole dance has gone on so long, I HAVE to say this! She was dancing on a wheeled ice cream cart. The cart moved. In order to do this cute stint for the show, they needed a way to keep her aloft of the ice cream cart, so rather than strap her onto it, they put a pole through it and told her "hold on to this", thus she would not fall. Now suddenly it is Miley Cyrus is embracing the stripper community because she held on to a pole during her song! If anyone watched the whole thing, they would see her move completely half way across the auditorium on it, but somehow no one has grasped this concept yet! The sad irony of all this blabber is if they had set her atop the cart to fend for herself and she fell off, you would all now be commenting on how her father only wants to make money on her and doesn't care about her safety. Give me a break!
Sep 5th 2007 8:32AM Good grief. What happened to the land of the free? Let's ban everything - we have banned smokers, we banned styrofoam packaging for fast food, we have banned children from bringing cupcakes to school on their birthday. We have banned prayer - oh, I forgot, it is now a "moment of silence", we are trying to ban trans fats, we are restricting alcohol sales, we are bugging the poo out of people about how much fat they eat or how close to the equator they wear their pants. One town has now banned baggy pants.
This country was founded by people who wanted the freedom to be free thinking individuals, and we are all so busy trying to impose our beliefs and feelings on everyone else, the freedom is slowly seeping away. Look around and see the writing on the wall, folks. Something that seems so simple as people being allowed or not being allowed to wear perfume seems harmless enough - especially to those who think it should be banned. But wait until they try to impose something against you that you enjoy and seems "harmless" - like eating a candy bar while you drive to pick up your kids.
The gift of this country is being able to live around people who are excercising the same rights as you, in their own way, no matter if it offends you or not. There are plenty of offensive things around us every day - sitting around whining about what bothers us is a waste of time. If someone wants to splash on $1 worth of cheap Polo to feel better about themselves - whoop-ee-doo! Enjoy your freedom, folks, and quit trying to make this a communist country!
