Feb 11th 2011 11:25PM I haven't shopped at Wall Mart or "Wallyworld" or what we call here "Calcutta-Mart" for years!
No "mad bargains".
Horrible staff, cheapest junk (yes-even from China!)
If you shop wisely for certain things, yes; the dollar stores can be a good buy. Electrical stuff for sure, I would NEVER by in either! That's what Home Depot or Lowe's are for!
Jul 6th 2010 10:11PM I had a "friend" who also had problems with drugs and alcohol. The Judge should stand FIRM and cite LiLo's attorney. No dice! 90 days jail + 90 days rehab (not one day less!). Then just like my "friend" a 5 year probation! She'll NEVER make it ever again to Rodeo Drive or the Louis Vuitton "sale" again! Well, maybe to wash the floors when the store's closed!
Jun 20th 2010 5:01PM Being a teacher in an urban school, it is so true that the majority of really strange names are given to boys and girls of African-American descent.
I had a sweet girl in one of my classes who had a rare Irish name, but the pronunciation was objectionable.
Her name was Citaed. Yes--- S--thead!!!
I also taught a girl called Izzalive.
A boy called M'piinga (the Hispanics went nuts over that).
Then the two Arab girls, both with first names of Imah:
Imah Fatoush and Imah Fataz!

Aug 24th 2009 11:22AM Puedo escribir mis opiniones en los dos idiomas, pué, las haré:
Creo que el Sr. Trump tiene la última decisión en cuanto a quién la nueva Miss Universo sería. Es un arreglo de "palanca" con Hugo Chávez. Si gane la Miss Venezuela, Trump puede invertir en un casino hotel en el país. Como se dice: "tit for tat" - e imagino a ¿quiénes tetas fueron intercambiadas en el negocio?
I really believe that Mr. Trump had the ultimate decision making power in who the new Miss Universe would be. It was a "bribe" arrangement with Hugo Chávez. If Miss Venezuela would win, Trump would invest in a new casino-hotel in the country. How does one say it?--"Tit for tat" and I wonder whose "tits" were traded in the business!
Jul 18th 2009 7:05PM The name "Smintair" just doesn't "cut it" in the airline logo. How about Air Cancer? Have the corporate symbol the Zodiac with Cancer, and then superimpose a cigarette! Have the Dusseldorf and Narita gates specially made, like El Al; but not for security, but pump in some nice nicotine and tar-filled smoke, so you can have a great feeling even before you board the plane. I can just see the advertising slogan:
Air Cancer - the airline for those who are dying to fly!
By the way - throw in some free "smoke-steaming" of clothes before landing, to give that "freshly arrived" look.
Dec 19th 2008 8:34PM My God!~ The NAACP again!
Same thing as the United Negro College Fund saying not enough blacks going to college.
How come there's no: United Caucasian College Fund? United Asian College Fund? United Gay College Fund, United Mormon College Fund. How come there's no NAACP-[National Association for the Advancement of Caucasian People?
You people [there! I said it!!] have your BET.
Minorities are represented everywhere. There are some very fine actors who made it because they were GOOD, not because they were black or Asian or Jewish or gay or whatever!
When you people realize that advancement is based on talent and not on the colour of your skin, maybe, just maybe, things will be fair!!
And by the way, I am a minority, too!!
Aug 4th 2008 11:31AM It was justified what the Borgata did to this guy.
One time on a flight to California first class, I was seated next to this "gentleman" who had the most offensive mouth odor. I gave him a stick of my mint gum (saying it was for the air pressure). It still didn't work. Then I asked if he wanted to share a bottle of champagne. Still, it didn't work. Dessert was a chocolate mint ice cream sundae. Still didn't work. Finally, in desperation, I handed the flight attendant a note:
"Give this guy some mouthwash FAST!" - He went to the bathroom and used it. The problem is that he forgot to clean his dentures! WHEW! That was a 6-hour flight I'll never forget! But, the guy was so apologetic afterwards that he gave me an invite to go backstage where he was filming a movie. Privacy prohibits me from disclosing his name, but he has a fantastic role in a new high-
grossing blockbuster movie!!
