“Exactly. She is disingenuous when she acts like she speaks for all women when, in fact, she is just insulted about something that was said about HER. If she were AS incensed about what the Republicans have done to ALL people, then maybe I'd listen to her childish rants.”
“When someone uses an excessive number of "likes" in one sentence, I feel that they are not giving themselves a moment to think about what they're saying. They're just plowing ahead with their thoughts, which is why they need so many filler words.”
“Thank you for telling your story and becoming the person you are. Your grandmother couldn't see the real you but we do. Your poem at the inauguration was a beauty. I loved the way you told the story of America, our strengths, our differences, our daily lives and how it affects everyone around us. You are on the right journey now. Onward!”
“If they continue to have stupid design competitions, like designing for an animated character, I think Project Runway will be in danger of jumping the shark.”

“Last season was the shark-jumper for me. The stilt-walkers, the rock & roll band . . . what else? Was it last season that they designed dresses for the wives and girlfriends of some guys we didn't know? I realized that I had forgotten to watch episodes 2 & 3 of this one, and I didn't even care. They are recorded, I think, so maybe I will check them out. Or not.”

“The original PR jumped the shark a few seasons ago. This is supposed to be PR AllStars. OK.
If they say so. I think it's more like "We asked a bunch of folks who didn't win PR and these
are the ones that said Yes." Joanna Coles is a frightening substitute for Tim. I just don't see
her as a lovable mentor. The host, whose name I can't remember, is awful. Stiff and totally
rehearsed. Isaac drives me nuts. I was as confused as the designers were about where this
toy would be "wearing" the dress. The challenge was cocktail dress. But the judges kept
talking about the red carpet. If Rami's dress was a cocktail dress, I'm Nina Gah-seeya.
And I'm not.”
“Any normal person witnessing sexual abuse of a child -- no matter who you are or how big or strong you are (and I'm a small woman) -- would be so outraged that they would just instinctively intervene. I don't understand these people. It's mind-boggling to contemplate the internal sickness that must reside in their world. As someone else said on this board, if it was THEIR child, would they be so cavalier?”

“Really? Not defending McQueary, but how would you react if you saw your favorite uncle or a beloved neighbor doing a child? Would you be Mr. Tough Guy or would you be in shock as McQueary probably was (He grew up with Sandusky's kids in State College, played under him,knew the family). It's is easy enough to say we would all have intervened in some way, but, really, would we?”

“I think it is indicative of both a deep sickness regarding anything to do with non-heteronormative sexuality in sports culture, combined with deep rooted misogyny and body shame.
Athletic culture in America thrives in a cesspool of misguided machismo, impossible standards of male athleticism, and a complete denial of anything that remotely resembles love.
Just as the athletes themselves become "things" so do women and children. At its worst, it is a deeply sick culture of adolescence that refuses to grow up.
I can't figure out any other reason for why someone could witness an act like this, and walk away without doing anything.”
“Ding ding ding ding -- We have a winner. Well said, gmgl. Jamie IS part of the 1% so she has the luxury of playing word games and obsessing over cooking gourmet dinners. She thinks that the march on Wall Street is just a bunch of young people and that she's not part of what they're marching for because she's older. To some extent she's correct, but it's not because she's older; it's because she's part of the group they're protesting against. But, okay, she worked hard for her money and she can live any way she wants. But to be so clueless about the rest of the world, well, that's just sad.”
“I love you Jamie Lee, however, your situation is very different from thousands of women out there -- women who don't have the luxury of playing word games and cooking gourmet foods. I live in New York City and there are plenty of men and women in my age group (over 60) going down to Wall Street to support and PARTICIPATE in the protest against Wall Street and the banks. This has nothing to do with being young; we're all in this together -- as citizens of the United States, it affects ALL of us -- and many women (and men) in our country do not have enough financial freedom to wonder why we're not as liberated as we thought we were (or as we once were). Nowadays, there's a comfort level missing in millions of lives that prevents them from pondering such minor issues. But that's not to say you shouldn't enjoy yourself -- you've earned it. Just don't assume that you currently represent many people in this country.”
“I agree with some of the messages that have said "Payoff" because that was my very first thought when I heard this story of how she is suddenly "not credible." My gut feeling: his side paid her off in exchange for her giving permission to look bad in this whole debacle. We'll know for sure when and if she moves to a nicer place by the end of the year.”
“What a douche. I use the post office at least twice a month. I was just there this Saturday and the people who work there are of all different races and nationalities. My mail carrier is an Asian guy. And why would I want more McDonalds restaurants and not more post offices? So, is he saying that unhealthy food is more important than a mother being able to mail a package to her son in the military? I just don't get this ridiculous way of thinking. It's all nonsense. Oh, and Miss Thang ... I'm over 60 and I don't know how to take a freakin' photo of my check, so you can sit on it ... and twirl.”
