Jul 27th 2012 8:11PM Seriously? I slipped and fell outside once, should I sue God? I pray for these parents, it's a horrible loss but this is not the way to make it better! If I see one of my kids try to slide down a railing anywhere, I say to them "don't do that, you could kill yourself". Guess I was right.
Jul 27th 2012 2:09PM "LIberals don't believe in personal responsibility"? That's the single most ignorant comment I've ever read in my entire liberal life! Have you personally interviewed every "liberal" in the freaking country to come to that monumental conclusion? Ridiculous.
Jul 6th 2011 7:29PM Jose Baez is a passable attorney but he did not win that case and neither did Cheney Mason, who had a lot more trial experience than Baez; the prosecution lost the case, there's a difference.
Jun 14th 2011 7:40PM First of all, to Duncan: What???!!! "Ignorant colored girl on drugs"??? Did you fall on your head while you were out burning that last cross? I was gonna ask which hole you were speaking out of but I think I just answered my own question. How do you know she was on drugs, she was an 11 year old child? Or did you assume she was on drugs because the family is black? Either way, it's too bad it wasn't you up there, we don't need anymore of your type on this discussion board or anywhere, for that matter. That being said, it probably did happen because she stood up to look out over the side, which is what a child alone on a ferris wheel might do. Very sad. May God bless this little girls family.
Jun 8th 2011 3:02PM Hank, while I agree with you to a point, I think calling this picture "childish crap" and "trash" is just plain mean! Of course it's childish, she's 7 years old!! Lighten up dude. However, I do agree that this is just a picture by a 7 year old, I have four kids and I've had much "art" through the years. It's beautiful to us as parents, and to people who may know the child but I'm sorry, it doesn't belong in one of the biggest art museums in the world! I think EVERYBODY has dumbed down their whole ideas of what constitutes true talent, no matter what the medium. I mean come on, in this country, we've made celebrities out of the cast of "Jersey Shore", as if it takes talent to do what they do on that show! Talent, Art, Celebrity...none of it means much anymore.
Jun 3rd 2011 2:50PM To mirrormirror: speak for your self, ok? They are not smarter than us, they just aren't as lazy as us. We are every bit as intelligent as anyone in any other country, if not more, and just as capable. Our problem in this country is that we have a grand sense of entitlement, we think we shouldn't have to work as hard for things as people in other countries do simply because we are Americans. We look for shortcuts, ways to get around tasks that we don't want to do, get rich quick schemes. Or we just think of ways to rip off our fellow man so that we can make a quick (and easy) buck. We're extremely privilaged in this country and most of us don't even realize it, but we sure do take advantage of it. Most of us in this country (most, not all) have never and will never have to struggle for everything we get like people in other countries/cultures do, we tend to take our freedoms and our prosperity for granted. We work hard for what we have, but we work hard by our standards and for some in other places, our idea of hard would be a piece of cake for them. We are not stupid in this country, however we are lazy, arrogant, greedy, and spoiled. No, I'm not America bashing, I love my country, wouldn't want to live anywhere else, but facts are facts.
May 13th 2011 4:45PM I agree with cookie and I applaud Chuck Lorre for not backing down for fear of losing ratings. Charlie Sheen is imploding, period. This is part of what is wrong with this country, we let stars/celebrities get away with anything and everything, all manner of horrible and dangerous behaviors, just because we like the show they're on, or the movie they're in or the music/sports they play! His behavior was getting out of control and he was given the chance to get it together but he did not. I'm a mother and have learned (and try to teach my kids) that we do not reward bad behavior, that there are consequences for our actions, positive for good, negative for bad. Should I teach them that those rules are only for un-famous people, because that's what we're saying every time we excuse it! Charlie Sheen has been behaving badly for quite some time now and I, personally, am glad someone finally called him on it! And the people who really care about the man, family and friends, and fans for that matter, should be more concerned about his getting help than whether or not he's still on a show!
May 4th 2011 7:50PM Nancy, you are so right! I haven't heard anyone use the term "colored" since the 70's for God's sake! C'mon people, your ignorance is showing! And yes, I'm sure that people will just torture those poor kids, just like Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's kids were tortured (remember their names, Rumer, Scout La Rue, and Tallulah Bell)...oh wait, they don't seem like therapy bait to me!I guess it's a good thing they didn't ask anybody's opinion, huh? Get lives!!
May 4th 2011 7:27PM If I were a child, had been lucky enough to be born to Mariah Carey, one of the most beautiful voices of our time, and have the life that they are able to give their children, you could call me whatever the hell you want and all I would say is THANK YOU MOMMY AND DADDY!
May 2nd 2011 8:17PM Tom: Rock music was promoted to do what??!! People should not post while under the influence!!
