Aug 22nd 2009 1:20PM First of all, why is anyone bringing her bedroom life into this at all? Plenty of "good" people were adulterers, Abraham Lincolin got syphilis from a prostitute, does that ruin his legacy? Not at all. Angelina did a very good thing by giving these kids bikes, which ends up being a nice long term benefit (education, good career, giving back to others in need).
As for the people complaining why she doesnt help kids in her own country...she does. But one thing you guys need to know is that even those of us in the lower class live in luxury compared to children in third world countries. I was on welfare as a younger kid and even then I knew that at the shelter, I was bathing in the same type of clean water that other kids (in other countries)had to walk 10 miles for. Even when I was four I gave my brand new toys and shoes to missionaries who I knew were going to poor kids in bad countries.
Dont get me wrong, I know that there are plenty of children (and adults) who need help here in the united states, and when I finish school and college and get a good job, I'll do my best to help fellow citizens. I just think the criticism about her helping another country is just ridiculous, especially when clearly they're in poorer living conditions than almost any american can even imagine.
Aug 21st 2009 3:46AM Last time I checked, I couldnt just go up to someone and scream BAM!!! and watch them drop dead...As for the boycott, there's really only one reason a person would bring a gun to a political rally (especially when they're from the opposing side) and that's for intimidation. Here in Alaska, we have extremely relaxed gun laws (which I am greatful for, the day I turn 21 I'm getting one myself), but I do think a little bit more gun control is needed, I dont want to become a victim of another school shooting just because someone got an assualt riffle from some south of the boarder drug lords (which is common). The boycott is ridiculous, I see why someone would call for it. And for the love of god, CAN SOME OF YOU ACTUALLY READ YOUR CONSTITUTION BEFORE DECIDING TO HIDE BEHIND WHAT YOU THINK ARE YOUR "RIGHTS", a lot of you are dead wrong.
Michelle - "white's" are still the majority, and the b.s. statistical "survey" you're basing that comment off of was created as propoganda for certain radical groups that happen to be white supremacists. In fact, black people (being the largest racial minority here) only make up 12% of this country's population.
Minette - Racial profiling is actually illegal, please check out the fourth amendment.
Aug 6th 2009 6:16AM It's kind of sad that people are so able to sexualize everything (consciously or not). Nudity and pregnancy are two of the most natural things in life. I've never been pregnant (I'd like to enjoy being a 17 year old for as long as possible) but when I do get married and have children, I'll probably take quite a few pictures documenting my pregnancy (probably just exposing the belly, if anything at all). I dont see why anybody would hide such a thing from a child, unless there was a sexual motive behind the pictures in the first place.
Also, this trend has been around as longer than I have, with Britney Spears, Demi Moore, and all of those nude paintings and sculptures from hundreds to thousands of years ago. I dont think we can really call it new.
Jul 24th 2009 4:22PM I think it's nice to hear about an athlete who isnt taking the Wilt Chamberlain route. I'm 17 and I'm the only virgin I know (not a religious thing, just not ready), so congrats to him for having such an amazing amount of self control to never get caught up in the heat of the moment.
Mar 13th 2009 8:58PM Do you not know how to navigate to the political articles? Seriously what the hell is wrong with people like you? This has nothing to do with D.C. it has to do with a man who fought and killed a shark.
As for this guy, him and his friend shouldnt have been there in the first place. But wow at least he came prepared, and at least he put the poor shark out of its misery.
Mar 11th 2009 10:14PM I know (or hope) that these guys were just joking when they wrote this because if not, then they're going to be stuck with the internet, their hand, and some lotion for the rest of their lives.
Mar 11th 2009 9:53PM I'll let you know right now a christian man sexually assualted me in a christian church when I was a 8 years old. Religion has nothing to do with morals. I think you should be open with your children about sex (at the appropriate age of course) so that they arent crazy and that they dont do the crap I mentioned in the first sentence.
As for this commercial thing, as long as they put up a quick warning (like they do with those girls gone wild commercials) and put them on later at night (like when the kids are most likely asleep) I dont really have a problem with this.
Feb 26th 2009 4:55PM Anything is better than what Sofia Loren wore. I mean theres someone who went for fashion instead of comfort and tried to look 24 when she's really 74 and it looked ridiculous. Whoopie dressed her age, was comfortable, and was fine with the results. Yes it was the Oscars, and yes the animal print was a big no-no. But whatever. I would rather have women dressing their age
Feb 19th 2009 4:19PM It's sad that youre so uneducated. My great aunts are black but have red hair and green eyes and very light skin, nobody cares. And my mom's best friend married a white guy and one of their sons has very bright red hair and big blue eyes. Nobody questioned the paternity there.
This baby is (the baby boy version of) gorgeous, so is their daughter.
Feb 19th 2009 4:09PM No you halfwit they wont be teased at all. My mom's friend is black and she married a white guy and they have 8 kids (multiples) that are each and every shade of tanish brown or whatever. They've got a lot friends, none of which make fun of them for anything, they're all smart and healthy and happy children. Its 2009 there are a lot of mixed kids out there.
