“Unfortunately, this man is not offering new ideas to the masses. I remember 30 + years ago when I mentioned I did Yoga as a means of exercise one of my co-workers told me Yoga was the work of the devil. It is surprising how narrow minded some people can be!”

Kristina Anderson on Jun 5, 2013 at 22:17:03

“about 15 years ago, we proposed to add a yoga class at our gym... We could not call it yoga, because members would think of chanting and anti-Christian teachings...”

“Karma, Fox exudes hate towards anything and anyone progressive and then they sit there and moan they weren't invited. Who in the world really wants to be in the presence of all that hate?”

mistykay13 on Dec 5, 2012 at 11:43:31

“No, Linda, that didn't sound like any moaning because they weren't invited to me. Tell me, WHY would any POTUS do that? For what purpose? Propaganda planning session? Continued planned media manipulation? Why would these show hosts even attend? Doing so just outright takes any credibility they might have claimed they had. From this point on they have ceased to be any credible conveyor of opinion news let alone of true unbiased news reporting.”

“Remember when Wal-Mart proudly sold made in America? It would be nice to at least see those products back in their stores! My niece worked there and while she made above minimum wage she was only able to work about 25 hours a week no where near the money she needed to support her family.”

“She thinks Mitt is going to save America; my question is the 1% of America that is in their tax bracket? His sketchy plans so far show an extreme economic hardship is on the horizon for the middle and working classes in this country if he is elected.”

Anniebody on Aug 15, 2012 at 10:23:26

“That's correct. Under the Ryan budget plan (that even the creator of the budget plan says will not work) Mitt will only pay .086% of his income in taxes. That's a huge difference from 13.9% obviously. The middle class will all be poor. So tell me why anyone in the middle class would vote against their best interests?”

“I've been a loyal GM buyer for over 40 years this sickens me!”

jssnowhill on Jul 25, 2012 at 17:52:30

“Another loyal GM buyer here too & it also sickens me too! Maybe GM secretly wants to just finish Detroit off, because without the bailout for all of them, they could have closed the door & shut off the lights in Detroit, which other than Auto industry, has already happened. I left my home State of Mich in 1982, and the saying back then was "Last one out of Michigan, Shut off the lights"! They keep going, everything in that state will be in the dark!”

“The funny thing is... him losing it at the end, it just demonstrates to the contrary of the point he was trying to make: being a nice guy.”

Michael Legnon on May 4, 2012 at 10:37:32

“So true! My conservative friends just don't get that calling me a name or referring to anyone who doesn't think exactly like them [with this type of animosity] sure doesn't make me want to consider their viewpoint(s)....and only re-enforces what I already think.”

“I find it interesting that " in the summer of 2008 when the average U.S. gasoline price hit a record high of $4.11, Fox said that “no President has the power to increase or to lower gas prices” and the only way to reduce our vulnerability to gas price spikes is to use less oil." Now they have started a new campaign to scare the American public.......”

“I hope they knock themselves into nowhere land! Obama has done wonders with a congress that refuses to compromise on anything. A congress which is more interested in legislating my morality than in helping our country grow. Let me worry about my morals. Congress needs work with the president and go about the business of getting this country back to being an economic powerhouse.”

“I believe the Republicans should finally get off the hands and start doing something for the middle class! Because they are so out of step with the middle class I can't see it happening. The conservative agenda is not about Christian values as they would have you believe. It is money, money for them and no one else.”

stuart100s on Nov 28, 2011 at 19:13:02

“Quit expecting the government to do your job to help the poor. Abdicating your responsibility is not compassion. Taking from one person to give to another is called theft, and it is not a christian value.”

Paula Deen at the Crossroads: Punch Line or Role Model?

Commented Jan 20, 2012 at 09:01:59 in Home

“I don't consider keeping an illness private hiding anything. The fact that she chose to hawk a medications doesn't bother me either. If is steers just one person in the direction of treatment then that is a benefit for the person needing help.
If I were in her shoes I would have kept my health issues private too. In fact, when I was diagnosed with type 2 I only told friends and family when it became apparent that they needed to know in case I needed assistance.”

Paula Deen at the Crossroads: Punch Line or Role Model?

Commented Jan 19, 2012 at 12:53:55 in Home

“I would assume most people watching her show and cooking her recipes to be over twenty-one and old enough to make their own decisions. How she can be held accountable for other peoples choices is beyond me. Have we become a population that blindly follows paths that we know may not be good for us? Do we also access blame onto others for our choices. I've watched Ms Dean over they years just because I like her personality. I've made a few of her recipes but not often. Every day we make choices if we choose to make the wrong choices for our health that is on us not on the chef. Just like with drugs; JUST SAY NO, be accountable for your own choices don't blame someone else!”

Scanner54 on Jan 19, 2012 at 14:49:47

“"Have we become a population that blindly follows paths that we know may not be good for us?"
Umh... the answer would be, in many cases yes - and not only as far as Paula Deen is concerned.”

Jeffrey Miller on Jan 19, 2012 at 13:10:39

“I'm totally on board with you on this. Paula Deen has a show because people like what she cooks. It's not the other way around like some would like to suggest. I can blame a cigarette comany for cancer deaths, I won't blame a celebrity chef for people getting diabetes. I LOVE Paula Deen and am borderline diabetic not because I eat what she cooks, but because I liked that heavy, comforty, fried, fatty, greasy delicious food long before I ever started watching her show. F&F”

winkywinky on Jan 19, 2012 at 13:09:54

“I agree, the people watching her show are Adults and common sense tell you , you cannot make a habit of eating the foods she cooks. I love her personality and have made some of her recipes, it's called moderation, she does not force you to watch her or eat what she cooks. My husband is Type 2 (taking insulin) and has been since he had a major hearth attack 25 yrs ago, he has never been over weight and heart disease and diabetes runs in his family, his eating habit had nothing to do with it. His taking insulin will never be reversed no matter what he does with his diet, although his eating habit will keep his diabetes under control and his insulin intake low. He even has a small piece of cake once in a while, just scrapes off the frosting..moderation and choices is the answer.”

“I can survive, I am retired. I worry about others who are having a hard time feeding their families. Why should congress sit on their hands and not work together while there are hard working men and women who cannot find a decent job? Why should congress only support tax cuts for the rich while hard working men and women pay a higher percent their wages in taxes than billionaires? Why would anyone in public office block or deny people in this great country the right to a good and decent job? The why's are staggering the answers are non-existent only because we have a congress that cares more about themselves than they do for the people who elected them to work for them.”
