NY Times Editorial Board On NSA Scandal: Obama 'Administration Has Now Lost All Credibility'

NY Times Editorial Board On NSA Scandal: Obama 'Administration Has Now Lost All Credibility'

“Who did you vote for? Romney? Gary Johnson? The fact that you think there was a better choice in 2012 than Barack Obama tells me everything I need to know about your wisdom...or lack thereof. That you want to deny others the right to vote because you disagree with how they voted says a lot about your character, and it's not good.”

“Lillian, the facts are your biggest concern right now not me . The honeymoon is over, your guy is not in control. Things are going bad. Even the Dems are starting to admit it. ”

“He needs a tattoo to remember her by because *he* needs it for his own healing and ability to move on. It doesn't really matter if you understand or not, does it?”

“I really hate to break it to you, but there is this thing in the fashion industry that you may not be aware of called "long sleeves." These magical textiles can be used to cover from view things that may be present on arms, like scars or tattoos. My allergist, who has been a doctor for fifteen years and is one of the top allergists in the state where I live, uses these miracles of the clothing industry to cover the elaborate tattoos that are present on her biceps and forearms each and every day. Imagine that!”

“More glitter that had nothing to do with the post. She's a Dr, she could wear a tube top and ratty bell bottoms and as long as her patients were happy it would not matter.
Long sleeve shirts really don't go over well in many environments, not just the company picnics, at times wearing them is the lowest of fashion because they are not appropriate for the venue. The people that don't dress for the environment stick out like a sore thumb and their inability to fit in limits where they will go in life.”

“It isn't. But until we can get the laws changed, that's how it is. Have you ever been to a country where servers aren't paid slave wages? Entree prices are sometimes 50% higher than here in the U.S. So if people weren't complaining about having to tip, they'd be complaining about the higher prices. It's lose-lose. Just tip your server.”

EmboldenedOlden on May 16, 2013 at 20:03:58

“I have been to many countries and the prices are *not* 50% higher. So that part is false. I'm interested in fairness for the workers, I don't care about the complaining -- I care about owners shifting their wage burdens to the whims of the customers. We should try to get the laws that allow this changed.”

“I agree it would be nice if restaurants did that, but paying slave wages to their servers and relying on you to leave a tip is how restaurants keep entree prices low. Ever been to a country where tips aren't a part of the server's salary? The entrees are as much as 50% more than here in the United States. Listen, Filosofer, if you don't want to tip your server, that's fine. But if you don't want to tip, stay at home and cook your own meal - don't expect someone to cook it and serve it to you. If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to go out. Period.”

“As someone has already mentioned, the elderly don't often call 911. I don't know why, but I know it's true. When my grandmother had a stroke in 1999 at the age of 77, she called my mom. When my grandfather (at 89) fell and fractured his hip, he called my uncle. Illness creates confusion, and even younger people will call a family member instead of 911 when they, themselves, are sick.”

cqdeed on May 14, 2013 at 14:35:30

“Sometimes it boggles the mind. My 81 year old mother fell and broke her hip. She painfully crawled to the phone and instead of calling 911 or one of two of her sons who lived nearby, she called a little ol' lady she always gave a ride to church. That lady also in her 80's went next door to get help from a neighbor who called 911.”

cognitogrrl on May 14, 2013 at 14:27:04

“That's exactly right, Lillian. F&F

In pain and confusion, they might not be able to tell a 911 operator their address, and in the event of a stroke or hip fracture, might not be able to get to the door to open it for EMTs. A family member would have a key and could get in.”

“Here's the sad part about Lena Dunham, in my opinion: I think she could always be a very attractive woman if she would just make better fashion choices. There are styles that fit and flatter every body type out there, especially for someone with the access and monetary means she has. Instead, she chooses styles that make her look very frumpy and much chubbier than she actually is (yes, she is a little chubby, but she really is not that big - not that you'd know from her fashion choices!), just because they are shocking and show a lot of flesh. If she just chose for her body type, she could still find choices that show some skin and provoke the reaction she's looking for while still flattering her figure! A wise person told me a long time ago that just because you can put your body into a particular article of clothing, it doesn't mean it fits. I don't think Lena Dunham has ever been taught this. Please, Lena, invest in a good stylist who can help you dress to flatter your body type so everyone can see you for the gorgeous woman you really are!”

“I've been saying for a while, I think she does this on purpose. Like she's beyond it all to care and is making some kind of statement.”

MercedesGabriella on Apr 25, 2013 at 07:45:56

“Finally! I'e been thinking this for a long time,. Every time Lena shows up on a red carpet she has an ill-fitting gown on. The empire look is for elfin types, not healthy looking women. Look at Adele! She's a normal sized woman (not a model minus 2 size) and looks wonderful in everything she wears at formal functions.”

“You do realize that she was given full-ride scholarships to other schools, but her parents wouldn't let her take them and insisted she must attend this school, right? Oh, wait, you didn't bother to watch the video or read the supplemental links, so no, you don't know that.”

“Why should they get a red cent back? She had free ride scholarships to other schools, but THIS was the school her parents insisted she must attend. They weren't willing for her to attend the other schools she'd have rather attended and could've attended on those full scholarships, so then they SHOULD have paid for her tuition. By the way, it was the SCHOOL who kept them from her performances - they had to hire extra security to protect the other students and their families from her parents, remember? You DID read the article in its entirety, right?”

“Annie, did you bother to watch the video or read the supplements to the article? It's all there. The parents threatened the school - one thing the article states VERY clearly is that the school was forced to hire more security to protect other students and their families from Aubrey's parents at music performances.

Bottom line: the girl had free ride scholarships to other schools she would rather have attended more than this one. The parents insisted she attend this school, which is why they were paying for it. How else were they supposed to control her?”

The girl had received full ride scholarships from several other schools she'd have rather attended, but her parents insisted she must attend this school and they were willing to pay for it (how else were they supposed to control her?). As well, it should tell you everything you need to know that the school expended the money to hire security to protect other students and their parents from Aubrey's mother and father during music performances on campus.”

Because, you know, if she'd done that they'd have had no control over her. As well, the school itself had to hire security guards to protect other students and their families from her parents' outbursts at music performances. Please, tell me again where this girl is wrong?”

“Oh please, when will the excuses end? If she got a full scholarship to other schools and she's an adult then she should have gone there. It makes no sense that she would go where they want her to go, accept their checks, and then whine how they are too into her life. If you are independent person, then act that way. Either way, these parents have the byproduct of their skills in raising her.”
