Jun 28th 2012 6:52PM Not really only in America. Watched a news report about a woman in Spain who had her home foreclosed upon, lost the home but is still legally responsible for paying back the complete mortgage due at the time of the foreclosure. That sucks as bad as this situation. That it is legal is inexcusable!
May 6th 2011 6:52PM I was also alarmed by the hair-dying mom. Nothing like starting your kid out early in life with the message "you are not good enough for me and there is something wrong with you I have to fix". And leaving the child alone in the bathtub is another no-brainer. It takes such a small amount of water for a child to drown...why take the chance?
Dec 16th 2010 3:21AM I had two (now grown) children and six grandchildren and never, ever did they ever want to go to any fast food place because of the toys in the kids' meals. And if this mother is really so concerned about the health of her children, what are they doing at any fast food restaurant? If she can't tell them "No" now, what happens later as they become teenagers? Two more kids that society has to take care of because the parents can't or won't be the adults and take charge in their own homes? Great! This is simply a ploy to make some quick cash and nothing more. If the courts don't kick this out or McDonalds settles, what industry is next? Candy makers if her kids get cavities, liquor stores if they decide to start drinking, or the tobacco industry if they start smoking....don't forget, she can't even prevent them from forcing her to take them to McDonalds. Heaven only knows what will entice the little darlings next!
Oct 12th 2010 5:05PM 'Outlaw' has such potential. It could be a great, and long running, show for NBC, a hit that the network desperately needs. My only problem with the show was the gambling addiction sideline.....could have done without that. As far as the advertisers....couldn't care less about them. We make our choice of purchases based on personal experience or research....certainly not on what empty claims are made on commercials.
Oct 7th 2010 2:37AM I agree with the truck driver being a high divorce rate profession. The long haul trucker has just about the most ability to wander from their marriage vows, though there are many drivers that do not have that problem. I know of examples that go from one extreme to the other. I know drivers that have never cheated (though many do have their spouses traveling with them to help prevent the temptation) to a friend whose truck driver father cheated to the point that she had thirty one half-siblings all across the United States. Now that would be a family reunion!!
Sep 24th 2010 11:46PM You are kidding me! The so-called justice system is aiding and abetting in her eventual death by not holding her responsible for her actions. She was such an amazing child actress. It is so sad to see how far she has fallen and how those who should be helping her or setting her in the right direction continue to fail her. When will they finally realize she needs help and tough love......after she kills someone or herself? Too late then for regrets.
Sep 5th 2010 8:34PM Sounds like people in New York City have more dollars than sense (cents).
Jul 14th 2010 3:42AM We had a babysitter who stole not only my 1970 class ring from Hoover High School in San Diego but also took my mother's 1952 class ring from Naperville High School and my husband's 1971 class ring from Morse High School in San Diego. I wish someone would have taken the time to return them to me. They were irreplaceable to me.
Mar 20th 2010 7:50PM That is a radical thought. Just like the idea that the people should vote on if the politicians get raises, what perks they should have, and what health coverage they should enjoy! You know, instead of them deciding all this for themselves. That would make it more like they work for us instead of our working for them. But wait!!! Isn't that how it is supposed to be? How did it get so screwed up?
Mar 20th 2010 7:43PM Personally I could do without both the Democrats and the Republicans. And I could do without the $30,000.00 a year we have to pay for health insurance, let alone our deductible or copay amount. I would like to know how many politicians, regardless of their rank or ilk, that have to pay that much! My proposal is that none of them or their families get health care coverage of any kind until they get their heads out of their collective backsides and come up with a reasonable, well thought out (well, that should kill it...our politicians thinking anything out well.....not in my lifetime to date), equitable health plan that they themselves will be required to use. Maybe, when it is their healthcare or the healthcare of someone they actually care about bein in jeopardy, they just might consider it important enough to cooperate! It would be damn about time!
