Apr 9th 2011 9:57AM Oh get real! No vet is going to have a happy time trip to the vet wasting his/her time to get kitty used to him. He's got a living to do, and my vet, and all others, be they dogs or cats will not treat your animal no matter how sick if you have no money. Cats hate vets? I despise my vet whose taken care of two cats before this one but won't treat my Manny without money, and my dog is in a bad way with infected anals and is chewing herself raw and neither he nor any emergency vet will treat her because of greed.
Cats hate vets? Cats don't have to worry about being without money so they won't seen, mommy has to worry about that
Apr 8th 2011 4:11PM Trump is funny. Let's see, his first wife what, Hungarian? A certified Czech? What's his current lady, Russian? His daughter, is named Ivanka. Sounds Russian. And Trump is worried about some stupid birth certificate? Half the people in the U.S. don't even know what hospital they were born in let alone have their original birth certificates and if it matters that much then people are pettier than I thought.
Apr 2nd 2011 10:33AM What crap. All of it. Plastic surgeons, dermatologists will tell you any garbage. I went to a dermotologist and he couldn't figure out the reason I had the rash so he gave me something else for what I didn't have and it worked for a while and I've got the same rash, and the doctor got richer.
Nothing will keep you from aging. It's a fact of life, so just deal with it instead of being told how to stop it and waste your money on plastic surgery. Don't want to look like Joan Rivers do you?
Meat helped our brains evolve, and sorry Mr. Bacon promoter when we first began eating meat we ate carrion because we didn't know how to hunt yet.
Today eggs are good, yesterday they weren't. Today this oil is good, tomorrow someone will say it's not.
Everyone should just grow up and just live with getting wrinkles, a slower matabolism that makes ya fat and just damn enjoy life instead of being fear mongered to death about every damn thing put in the mouth. It goes in one end and out the other other and as long as it does, you're OK!
Apr 1st 2011 8:09AM The killing of a problem elephant let the villagers take care of it? If they had the means they could. They don't. Funny how this upsets people, but it doesn't upset people at all who flock to a video with people fighting on it and get views. Are teens fighting each other for the pleasure a great thing? Seems so. People watch.
If PETA is so horrified, where are they going to Africa to investigate problem elephants who trample villager's crops because of over crowding. Too many blame the elephant and call him a 'problem' when he's just trying to survive.
Lots of ivory poachers. Where's PETA? Lots of game hunters with animal heads on their walls..uh...where's PETA? Lots of people who try to smuggle exotic animals in so people can boast about an exotic pet and have no clue what they're getting into. They like novelty. Where's PETA. They're not stopping the trade, Animal Wildlife people are.
PETA is nothing but publicity hounds and they twist things to make them the hero. Wonder what tomorrow's cause will be.
Apr 1st 2011 6:16AM No one here would do anything nice for others unless there was something in it for them other than just helping. Don't see anyone here boasting of visiting sick kids, don't see anyone here boasting about helping to save another's home from foreclosure with money, don't see anyone here boasting about taking in a homeless person and helping them with a new start. Yup. And this chef is yelled at?
Mar 28th 2011 5:07PM Today pythons, tomorrow a venomous snake for a collector or perhaps an Anaconda who, when they bite, don't let go no matter the size. They chew and their teeth are turned backward making extraction a rather lacerating affair. The sentence should've been longer.
Mar 28th 2011 5:00PM Good job Bella! My Chihuahua did the very same thing, only she warned me silently about potential robbers that I took care of. My loving little girl saved me twice from a car I didn't hear as I'm losing my hearing, and she saved my life when I was suffering heat exhaustion.
Our dogs are the most amazing 'people' around. They do these heroic things because they love us.
Kiss your dogs tonight. You never know when your dog will 'kiss' you back by saving your life. I'll be forever grateful for mine.
Mar 21st 2011 11:40AM What nonsense! It doesn't take a genius to figure out if you're a manipulator. I tell them my rules up front. Rule one is respect. It goes both ways. Rule two is I won't do a darn thing to keep you. It's your choice to stay or go and I won't lose sleep if you decide to go. Rule three, there won't be any verbal or physical abuse because he can either be in jail or under it. Rule three. My looks are my looks. You don't like 'em, tough. Goes to the body as well. Rule four. You want to buy me things great. I'll never turn them down, you won't get them back and I won't kiss your behind for giving me something. I never ask for anything but won't turn them down either. Rule number five is what scares most away when I say " You're not my beginning or my end. I don't need you to feel worthy."
Women have got to start having a backbone and tell them what they expect and that you won't accept less. Men are manipulators because they expect you to accept less and know your dependence on needing a man and think being a martyr is a great thing to be. I have no sympathy for men who allow their women to treat them like dirt but stay and blame the women who aren't exactly nailing them to the floor and preventing them from going.
Mar 19th 2011 7:19PM I imasculate men all the time in my hobby writing. In my short stories the women are big and strong. My main character is a woman warrior who'd make Conan look like a 98lb. weakling. In my stories the men are smaller, they wear dresses and do the 'women' work like cooking, sewing, cleaning the tepee. My women warriors do the hunting and go into battle. Only recently has my main character's husband shown some independent thinking. But mostly he's subserviant. Only in one story has a boy wanted to become like the women warriors and his mother got mad at him because he tried to buck the 'system' and she didn't like change.
I thought my stories needed a little role reversal.For once I wanted women to dominate, get more rights, be physically stronger. Why? Even in hobby writing I thought it was about time that women in stories were not damsels in destress weak fools who need men to take care of them. My woman warrior main character has the strength of two men and it's acceptable. In real life if a woman is a bodybuilder looking type she's considered a freak. I admire them. At first men readers were threatened. They didn't like to see my character men in dresses and be submissive, but they failed to realize that's how men in the real world expect women to be. How interesting that male readers at first felt threatened by reading of my men in dresses yet in real life they'd nver dream of insulting a Scotsman in his kilt. Now men readers like my stories because they're different. They're not threatened by men in dresses. They're not threatened by my story men being weaker. Why? Because my male readers know that how they react is up to THEM! No one decides for them. Applying that in 'real' life, If men have a problem with women, it's not woman are at fault, it's the men because THEY control their actions and thoughts but need a scapegoat so they don't take responsibility.
I admire strong women. I admire strong men. Not strong physically, but mentally. Strong women don't need to explain, defend, justify, or apologize. Strong men aren't affected by strong minded women because they've been taught to be secure in themselves and that the only people they can change is themselves. The world won't pander to them. Weak men blame women for everything. Weak men need weak women to bolster them. Strong women won't tolerate them. Poor weak men. It must be tough to give up your power. Well as they say, there's always someone bigger and better.
Mar 2nd 2011 9:33AM Stupid article. Just one more yutz trying to make women believe the garbage of thin is in. If a man doesn't like my weight, or anyone for that matter, tough! I've eaten well, I got really sick and couldn't eat and lost 25lbs. in less than a month and was nearly all bone. I was irritable, my kidneyes almost shut down and everyone said I looked like hell because I was to skinny.
Eat up gals because you never know. You may not have that next meal especially in these trying financial times. I wouldn't mind eating a meal cooked by a man. There wouldn't be anything left for him.
